Resonance of the Ocean

Good game with lovely art style. Story is sort of vague at first and puzzles are just combining items and figuring out the order of them to play a sound. It's free and short, worth playing!
Ballads at Midnight
8.4 hours, 14 of 14 achievements
A great visual novel! Characters, story, art, world-building, all are done wonderfully! And it's free! Maybe because it was made in a game jam. If you like visual novels, give this a try.
The Walking Dead
17.2 hours, 48 of 48 achievements
I got the 400 Days DLC so installed it again to play it! DLC is not bad, stories are nice, although it would be better if it was longer to know the characters better.
A Building Full of Cats
1.7 hours, 21 of 21 achievements
It's about a building full of cats :P I haven't played hidden object games in a long time. It's actually nice! Art is very lovely, and finding cats in obscure locations is fun. I just wish it had more than one hint, a few cats are hard to find. It's relaxing and it has cats, that should be enough reasons to get the game ^_^
The original, 2006 Prey. I'm certainly Sold Out on this game :P CD Keys were generated on another distribution system, and they eventually ran out. Game is good, it had some original ideas and it's fun to play even today. It's a bit short but it doesn't get repetitive. Obviously it's a lot different than Prey 2017, but if you like old school FPS games, it's a good experience!

Fox game! And an amazing game! It's very well-made, and you can say it's made with lots of love behind it. Unfortunately it released with Stray at the same day, so it didn't get the recognition it deserved. It's short and might not be worth it for the asking price, but get it if you got the chance!
The first Tomb Raider remake made by Crystal Dynamics. It has a good balance between action and adventure, and both puzzles and action sequences are fun to play. It doesn't have anything new and groundbreaking to offer, but it still does a good job with what it has. Sadly the PC port is terrible, it crashes a lot, has screen tearing, texture flickering, and next gen improvements breaks the game sometimes. If you can put up with that, it's a nice experience.
Part of Sega' 60th anniversary. It's a mix of Yakuza and Streets of Rage. It's short and only has one level, but I don't expect much from a promotional video game.

I actually finished the game at the time of writing this, so next month? :P
Backlog Slaying Continues!I might not have much time around the end of the month, but I'll try to enjoy my time as best as I can! Hope you have a good month! 🧡
I skipped making an header because it takes some time, and the fact that I might be a bit lazy :P July wasn’t bad, I playtested more than I played games ^^” but it was still fun. Bright Paw also added more content so it went from Completed to Beaten. Have tons of games to play, hopefully I can at least give them a try >_>
Resident Evil 2
28.2 hours, 32 of 44 achievements
One of the best remakes! Capcom used RE Engine to its best, it looks nice and plays nice!
The only issue I had is that Claire/Leon B doesn't feel like a continuity, more like an alternative to main narration.
If you still didn't play it, put it above your backlog! ^_^

A very lighthearted and nice game! Combat is simple, but other things make up for it. I like most things about the game, narrative, puzzles, visuals, etc. Musical elements used is very cool as well!
Can't wait for Figment 2 Creed Valley!
1.5 hours, 1 of 22 achievements
From what I played, it's a good game! You can say it's a mix of The Legend of Zelda, Prince of Persia and Souls-like games, more The Legend of Zelda due to visuals and other things. I'll play more later!

Retro horror game! A bit short but enjoyable.
Janky but it's interesting! Seems to have a lot of depth.
Back To Present!Planning to beat my SG wins in two months, should be possible! Also have a good month 🧡
A lot of things happened to sum it up, and I couldn’t play or write. So to catch up to current month, I’ll finish up this and May report! And yeah I didn’t finish anything worth mentioning in April and June, so I skip those.
Buddy Simulator 1984

It's a bit like Pony Island, but with less horror (or more, that depends). It's well made and enjoyable!

2D Souls-like game. It's hard but once you get used to its mechanics and what to do, it becomes kinda addicting!

2.5D puzzle game, much like INSIDE. It's not perfect but I had a good time with it!

It tries to be old school Hitman but fails. It's still decent if you can get over its shortcomings.
Intro to the main game. It's a Visual Novel that introduces the characters and the world, nothing much.
The one who pulls out the sword will be crowned king
0.3 hours, 0 of 2 achievements
In "The one who pulls out the sword will be crowned king ", the one who pulls out the sword will be crowned king, simple as that :P Reminds me of Moirai. I'll pull the sword out one day.
The last Five Nights at Freddy's game for many, since this is the last one Scott Cawthon directly made. I kinda hate jumpscares, but these games are not bad, they get the suspense right. Not sure if I will play it more or not, busy with other games, but I'll get back to it some day!
It's a bit similar to Crypt of the NecroDancer, but It's a 2D Platformer. Only played the first level and It's enjoyable so far!
Next Report Will Come Out Soon!Soon-ish.
Woo… it’s March already! Time flies.
I didn’t play many games last month, I was busy with RPGs and you know how huge they can be ^^ I think I’ll play smaller and more casual games this month.

It's a bad game. UI is crap and the game looks very simple. Those would not matter much if the puzzles were average at best, but the puzzles also have bad design, it mostly depends on your timing rather than skill or reaction. Since it's a Profile Limited game you can't showcase its achievements, so there is absolutely no reason to play it. Better avoid it and play something else.
The Chronicles Of Myrtana: Archolos
136.9 hours, 33 of 40 achievements
Best Gothic mod I ever played! To the point I call it a *game* rather than a mod ^^ If you played other Gothic games and liked them, check this one too!
It's Fallout, I doubt I need to say more about it ^^ Sadly, it already shows its age. It might be hard going from New Vegas to 3, the differences are very noticeable. Still need to play the DLCs and try a few mods.
*Opens the game*

Yeah, I'll play it later.

Good old Henry Stickmin, now remastered and better than ever! Played it a lot when I was a kid :D The Collection has all the games with the addition of a completely new Henry Stickmin game. I'm going to miss Henry Stickmin, but I'm not going to regret all the time I spent with it ^^
The Charnel House Trilogy

Spirit of the North

Fox game! 🦊 Nice narrative, beautiful scenery, and cute protagonist ^^
Actually played it for around 20 hours. I dig its Gothic atmosphere and dark story, but I found the ending a bit underwhelming, I expected something bigger. Still a good game! I should play the sequels, one day.
31.7 hours, 26 of 40 achievements
A bit janky in some aspects, but a good game! It can get boring at times because the narrative is very slow. Boss fights and monster designs are nice and I like the way the game handles the companions. There is a good and bad karma, but I found having bad karma to have no benefits, so there is no reason to go in that path unless you want to make the game more difficult. It's sort of a sequel to Mars: War Logs and runs parallel to it in terms of story. I'll play that too one day.

A short but good game with nice narrative, a bit thought-provoking at times, can hit close to home ^^" A-Eye is a nice character.
I can't really place this game in any category, it has no meaningful end in any way. I'll mark it as beaten when I feel alright again.

Finnish Touhou basically. Nice art and interesting use of Finnish folklore for the story!

I know, I’m late ^^” Just a mix between unfortunate events and me being busy. Not really feeling good, so I’ll make this short.
Anyway, all the games I started in November were finished before it ended, so there are no Unfinished Mess this time!
If On A Winter's Night, Four Travelers

Just got 100% of achievements. I still believe you should play it if you like Point & Click games! It's short but worth every minute of your time.
1.6 hours, 13 of 13 achievements
A very weak attempt at creating a Survival Horror game.
There isn't anything noteworthy in this game; the story is basically an excuse to shoot zombies, gameplay is as basic as it gets, there is no saving feature and it has only 2 levels which you can finish in 30 minutes. It lacks depth in everything.
It seems there were plans for more levels and DLCs, but the dev left it unfinished like the rest of his works.
There is no reason to play this when there are better, far more interesting games out there.
A New Beginning - Final Cut
13.2 hours, 28 of 28 achievements
A decent Point & Click Adventure game.
The story might look lame at first glance, but it's nice and well-developed.
There were still some problems I had, like most Mini games have little to no instructions and sometimes you get stuck in a puzzle because you missed a small detail.
It might not be as memorable as other games from this genre, but It's still a good game worth playing.
9.3 hours, 18 of 21 achievements
As I said in the previous report, It's a very niche FPS!
Most of the stories are told through notes and ghost characters. It's mostly worldbuilding and side stories, but It connects to the main plot nicely and explains a lot.
The stories are told in a non-linear fashion, each area has at least 2 stories that may or may not be connected to each other or the main story. Because of that, it encourages exploration and rewards it nicely.
Since the game happens at the 17th century, the weaponry is appropriate to that era. The weapons range from bows, crossbows and tomahawks to stronger, but slower weapons like muskets and pistols, nothing out of the ordinary. You also have a melee weapon: a knife. You can use it for Stealth-killing enemies or as a last resort when you run out of ammo.
Because you lack ammunition and stronger weapons early in the game, it emphasizes more on stealth and plays more like a survival game. It turns more like a standard FPS the more you progress and find better weapons.
As much as I like the Black & White style, I had to switch to the Color Mode because it tired my eyes x_x It probably hurt the atmosphere to some extent, but not everything will switch to color so it still keeps the original eerie feeling in some areas.
The Betrayer is sadly the first and last game from Blackpowder Games, they went out of business months after release.
It might not appeal to everyone, but I suggest you to give it a try!
The Flame in the Flood
14.8 hours, 16 of 36 achievements
Probably the only Roguelike Survival game I enjoyed in a long time!
The survival aspect is done very well. There are lots of useful craftable items and most actions you can do are rewarding.
The graphic and art is probably the most complete aspect of the game. It's pleasant to look at and animations exists for almost every action you can do. The soundtrack is also great and fits very well to the atmosphere.
The story is the weakest aspect, there is little to none worldbuilding and plot.
If you like Survival games, I definitely recommend it! I suggest playing it once again with Commentary Mode too, It's very interesting!
Just beaten the final boss! ^^
LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham
17.1 hours, 33 of 70 achievements
It's hands down the best Lego Batman!
It has a nice story and humor, gameplay is simple yet enjoyable and there are lots of side content to do!
I enjoyed it from start to finish. If you want to play a Lego game, Lego Batman 3 is a good choice!
25.7 hours, 20 of 35 achievements
I really wanted to like this game, but it's more flawed than what I initially thought.
While the stories are interesting, the core gameplay gets repetitive and boring very fast. It's probably the biggest issue this game has. Every fight from the start of the first campaign to the finish is more or less same. There are also no quick or manual saves during the fights, which is a problem since fights are really slow.
It took me a year to finally finish the game. It also has a DLC, Scars of Freedom, but I pass. I didn't enjoy the game, chances are I don't enjoy the DLC either.
It's really hard to recommend this game, if you can forgive its flaws, give it a try.
Finished all the default songs available in the base game, so I count it as beaten!
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut
45.5 hours, 53 of 59 achievements
It's Deus Ex, needs no introduction :P So I just say what I didn't like about Human Revolution Director's Cut.
First of all, The Missing Link. It's not bad, but it takes away most of your weapons and augmentations and it happens right after an important story moment, it breaks the momentum story-wise. Would be nice if you could skip it or play it standalone.
The original gold filter is also gone, sadly it takes away the Renaissance atmosphere devs were aiming for. I never played the original version, but I would love to experience it with the filter. Maybe having the gold filter as a toggleable option was not possible.
The graphics also look a bit outdated, it didn't age well.
Oh, and the bosses, you can only fight them (except Burke in the DLC) directly, talking or stealth is not an option. Thankfully Eidos Montréal fixed this in the sequel!
Despite all those, I fully recommend it! It's a great game, and the sequel is even better! I also suggest to play it again with Commentary Mode, It's very, very fun!
Bottom LineNot much to say, except Merry Christmas! 🧡
I didn’t play many games in October, but some I played were pretty nice!

It tries very hard to be like Surgeon Simulator but fails in every aspect. Clunky controls, crappy UI and bad physics are the least of problems this game has, It's not even fun to begin with.
Just play Surgeon Simulator, It's far better than what this game is trying to accomplish.
18.3 hours, 9 of 14 achievements
You probably know about this already :P
It's a good game, but it loses its horror aspect very quickly. Maybe because the game throws you into something consistently, all the dread just wears off and makes the encounters less memorable. Only two I can remember were Trager and Eddie Gluskin encounters, both were interesting characters and their sections were fairly short.
If you look for spooks, look no further.
78.5 hours, 30 of 50 achievements
It has its own flaws and It's kinda janky, but I love this game!
It's a Piranha Bytes game, so if you're familiar with their other works such as Risen or Gothic, you know what to expect. Because of that, It's not for everyone, even though It's not really bad in my opinion.
If you're looking for a rich and quite unique RPG, play it!

It's fun, but lacks players, so the servers are empty and you must play with bots. It's still in beta, not sure if the devs have any plans for finishing it or not.

This game is very fun! It's fun to play it solo, but It's best to play it with a friend or someone else.
Still in Early Access and more maps and modes are planned, so I leave it in the Unfinished category until full release.
Stuck in the boss level ^^"
Also currently holding a Kickstarter campaign. It has potential, looking forward to how it turns out!
What Now?More games, more life stuff, and hopefully, more good events! 🧡
Better Late Than Never!

This is such a weird and surreal game! You're basically a fetus trying to evolve and hatch from your egg by eating and absorbing lesser creatures. It's short and free, and It's worth your time! If you liked this one check Perfect Vermin and Brutal Orchestra as well.
Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller

A good point-and-click adventure game if you forgive its flaws. My main problem was most of Episode 1; puzzles had bad design, visuals looked ugly because it was tearing itself apart and the story felt very raw. But most things became better after the second episode, and the game became more enjoyable and captivating. A good choice if you want to play an adventure game and have no problem with janky stuff.

A very innovating collection of puzzle games! You must rearrange the panels of an animated comic book to advance the noir-styled narrative and avoid failing. Music is very nice, the puzzles are sometimes head-scratchers but fair and not very hard and animation is pretty good. Each game in the collection takes around an hour to finish, so It's a good choice if you want something relaxing and not too hard.
Magrunner: Dark Pulse
14.6 hours, 24 of 24 achievements
I've talked more about this game in my previous report, so check it out! My opinion about it didn't change much since then. The story could be a lot better though, but It's not bad. Also check Relicta if you liked Magrunner, heard It's very similar gameplay-wise!
A neat precision platformer with a thought-provoking story. Levels use a 2-layered structure and you must switch between them to navigate the levels. The only problem I had was with the scarf; It's cool, but framerate drops the longer it gets. It's a neat game, levels are challenging and the story is good, so why not to try it?
Originally played it for the Speedrun Event, which was canceled because technical problems. It's a fun platformer and visuals are kinda cute!
Book of Demons
25.3 hours, 107 of 202 achievements
Actually a very fun Dungeon Crawler! It's the first installment of Return 2 Games series, which consists of 7 tributes to classic games and genres made in the '90s. It's your usual isometric RPG with Deckbuilding and some Clicker elements thrown into. Gameplay is rewarding, replay value is high and you can even adjust the length of dungeons! Overall It's a very fun experience.
Also knows as Not Tonight 2 Beta. It's an interesting game inspired by Papers, Please and such. Never played the first Not Tonight, but the beta was promising! Just a bit too easy.

Dystopian game where you must spy on your tenants for the government. It's a very dark game, both on narrative and atmosphere. It can be hard at times if you don't have a good strategy because some events need a lot of resources you might not have at the moment, which of course leads to a game over. It's a good game with high replay value due to different endings, I might get back to it again one day.
LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham
4.3 hours, 4 of 70 achievements
Third game from the Lego Batman series, and probably the best of them! First one was one of my childhood games and I have some sweet memories with these games :D My expectations weren't high, and Lego Batman 3 didn't disappoint me. Unlike the first game, this one has voice acting! I usually don't like voice acting in Lego games because it limits the narrative and humor (*stares at Lego The Hobbit*) but it works very well here since It's not an adaptation and it doesn't take itself too seriously. So far It's fun! I will continue my adventure later.
I didn't play that much to give a good opinion, but so far it looks like a good Metroidvania.
Fun first person platformer. It's currently in Early Access and more contents and features are being added, so it remains in the Unfinished category until it leaves the Early Access.
Closing ThoughtsStill busy with life, so I might miss the next report too sadly, sorry in advance if it happens ^^" But chances are I will not miss it. Hope you have a good month! 🧡
