Light in the dark
Playtime: 1.5 hours

Review: The idea behind the game is nice - you are a light in maze and can only see a small part of the maze. The execution however leaves everything to be desired: the game is highly unoptimized and runs like garbage, there is no settings menu except the default Unity one they didn't even bother to change, only mouse control, no level select and after the first few levels the mazes get ridiculously big and highly tedious and unenjoyable. Works fine with Proton.

Other completed games

Chronicles of Magic: Divided Kingdoms
Playtime: 6.3 hours
Achievements: 27 of 27 (100%)
Review: An OK hidden object game. The 2 main flaws with it is that the mini games are really really easy and the game is very short (3,8 hours for 1 and 3/4 playthrough because I missed some collectables). The Linux version works without any issues.
Lost Grimoires 3: The Forgotten Well
Playtime: 2.9 hours
Achievements: 13 of 13 (100%)
Review: It is an alright hidden object game. It doesn't do anything new but its not bad except for some hidden object scenes being a bit questionable. Linux version works fine.

Review: The game has so much potential to be such a fun match 3/Tetris like versus game, but it has been sadly abandoned in early access by the developers (last update was over 4 years ago). Such a shame :( Works fine with Proton.

Playtime: 2.6 hours

Review:This one is a hard one. On one hand it is a ok old school hidden object game where each scene is a just a pure HOS or a minigame. On the other hand so many people have issues running the game (myself included both on Windows and with Proton on Linux) and the developers haven't bothered updating the game since 2014. I got it more or less to work with Proton 7.0-3 (older versions wouldn't work for me), but it still had issues starting 2x.
Meridian: Age of Invention
Playtime: 5.6 hours

Review:I have played so many of these time management clear the road type of games and this one is a breath of fresh air after so many of them being basically the same. What it does differently: Resource collection is done by different workers and only 2 resources, you mainly only build, upgrade and deliver things to houses. Sadly it is quite flawed: levels too short, a lot of unnecessary clicking and task list mistakes. Works fine with Proton.

Review: It is a meh old school hidden object game where each scene is a just a pure HOS or a minigame. The game is way too picky when it lets you interact with objects however. The main issue with it is getting the game to actually run on modern Windows version and the game has never been fixed to address that. I got it working with Proton (7.0-3, older versions didn't work) on Linux but the game would still randomly throw out script errors from time to time.
My Coloring Book: Food and Beverage
Playtime: 29 minutes
Achievements: 35 of 35 (100%)
Review:A coloring book game for children with 35 images to color in. Can be also enjoyed by adults who just want to sit down, turn off their brains and relax. It does have some flaws however: the shades of blue are hard to tell apart, the icon they use for the cursor makes it harder to click on the thing you want to color in and you have to color images in the way the game wants you and there is no mode to just color them in as you wish. Linux version works fine.
Noir Chronicles: City of Crime
Playtime: 2.3 hours
Achievements: 20 of 20 (100%)
Review: An alright hidden object game. It is however really short and easy. I am also not a big fan of the fact that you only get access to a couple of scenes at a time. Linux version works fine.

July overview

For a month where I spent the beginning of it being really sick and stuck abroad with just a potato 10 year old laptop that can barely run any games I think completing 11 of them is not too bad.

Completed games

Queen's Quest 4: Sacred Truce
Playtime: 5.3 hours
Achievements: 24 of 24 (100%)
Review: It is a decent hidden object game, except the minigames are really easy for the most part. I haven't encountered any bugs or issues and the Linux version of the game works great.
Legends of Atlantis: Exodus
Playtime: 8 hours
Achievements: 18 of 18 (100%)
Review:It is a time management, clear the road type of game. My annoyance with it is that one some levels you can lock yourself from progressing further due to the lack of options to get the resources you need to progress further (had to restart 3 levels because of it). It would would be nice if it would tell you that you can't get achievements on casual mode. It is not a bad game, but I didn't really enjoy it. Works fine with Proton.
Faces of Illusion: The Twin Phantoms
Playtime: 3.4 hours
Achievements: 13 of 13 (100%)
Review: Not the greatest but also not the worst hidden object game out there. It is however really easy and short (3,4 hours for 1 and 3/4 of a playthroughs as I missed some collectables the first time around). Linux version works fine except when tabbing out I couldn't see my taskbar on the monitor the game was on as the game was in front of it.
Northern Tale 4
Playtime: 7.3 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Just as the previous 3 games in the series were it is a nice clear the road type time management game. It doesn't do anything innovative but it honestly doesn't really need to. There is 2 annoying elements on a small handful of of later levels (seaweed that stops you vikings and draw bridges that automatically open up after a while) but they not annoying enough to ruin the game. There is a total of 45 levels to solve + bonus levels. Works fine with Proton.

Yay got actually a decent number of games done this week :D considering I am still abroad with a shitty laptop I will consider this as a huge win :)

Mahjong Deluxe 2: Astral Planes
Playtime: 5 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Mahjong games have no business being in 3D. Plus this game has other flaws. The game insists on starting on the left most monitor which if you have a non standard setup is gonna break everything. The movement in the levels sometimes just randomly resets to the default position and related to the movement if I played too many levels in the row it would give me slight motion sickness. There is a total of 84 levels to solve. Works fine with Proton.

Achievements: 279 of 279 (100%)
Review: A spot the difference game for children with 24 levels to solve. While it is easy for an adult it is well made and chill so people off all ages can actually enjoy it. My only complain would be that it gives you an achievement for each difference you find and therefore blocking the view of the bottom right corner while the Steam notification about it pops up. Linux version of the game works great.

Nonogram - The Greatest Painter
Playtime: 8.5 hours
Achievements: 26 of 26 (100%)
Review: A really nice picross/nonogram puzzle game with 226 levels of different sizes to solve + it has workshop support as well so you can download and make even more levels if you wish. I honestly don't have anything really I could complain about, I enjoyed my time with it. Works fine with Proton.
Black Swan
Playtime: 2.8 hours
Achievements: 0 of 0
Review: Horrible HOG. Not only does did the game crash right at the end making the inventory disappear once I restarted it and therefore making me unable to actually finish the game, but the game is generally buggy, filled with nonsense when you can actually pick/use an item and when not, badly designed hidden object scenes and fairly annoying minigames. Avoid. Works fine with Proton.

Second week of July

Yay, I actually got some proper games done this week. Not the greatest ones and not the longest ones but hey, I will take it.

Review: It is an ok HOG. There is a lot better ones out there, but while the graphic are dated I don't think it is too bad. People seem to have issues with flickering/crashes but I all I had is 1 crash that is likely my laptops fault. Not sure upgrades/powerups have any place in hidden object games, but you can just ignore them if you don't like them. The UI could use a little bit of polish. however Works fine with Proton.

Review: While this hidden object game is not horrible it does have some serious issues. Mainly some of the puzzles/minigames are plain just weird/annoying and the names of quite a few objects in hidden object scenes are very questionably translated. There is other much better hidden object games out there to play instead of this. Works fine with Proton.

First week of July

Only one game done and the post is a few days late, but I was really sick and I will use that as an excuse.

Review: A really bad hidden object game where you have to find a whole lot of 32 things that are mostly very stupidly hidden. I am not even gonna waste any more words on it because it is not worth it. Linux version works fine.

Fourth week of June

This post is incredibly late, but in my defense I spent 2 weeks traveling and then 2 weeks being sick so it is a miracle enough I actually have a games that have been completed even if incredibly short. I am also quite limited by what I can play at all due to the fact that till I manage to get home I am pretty much limited to a over 10 year old laptop which is as fun as you can imagine.

Review: The artstyle is lovely, but that is the only good thing.There is not much when it comes to it: you are a fish who needs to eat flies while a big fish is trying to eat you, thats it. It is really boring in my opinion. After only a few minutes I feel like I have seen everything there is to be seen. And while the movement idea is clever (you move your fish tail left and right to swim around) it actually ends up being really frustrating. Works fine with Linux.

Third week of June

I am technically only 99% done with the game for this week, but the SSD failure from last week took its save file with it and I only had a few levels left, so I am counting it as completed. Plus I am currently traveling (seen 6 different countries in the past 2 days) and my laptop is a 10 year old potato so gaming is very very limited aka non existent.

Review: A meh Mahjong game with a wooping 640 levels to play. 160 of them are 3D, the rest are plain normal levels. I am personally not a fan of the 3D ones because I find the movement really annoying (and for me it would randomly reset at where I was looking at sometimes), but the normal ones are fine, however you can not possibly lose it, the game will just reset the positions of the tiles left. Works fine with Proton.

Second week of June

I am super late with this post, but my godamn SSD died rtgoihergiohneroignvberoigvneruogn RIP 1TB of data, you will be missed (tho a lot of it was luckily backed up, but not all). If the SSD would have waited 2 more days it would have been replaced and no data loss would have happened, but noooooo it decided that in the middle of a stream is a great time to die…. I am not salty, at all.

Review:Really enjoyable hidden object game just like the rest of the games from the 100 Hidden X series. Only 2 things I wish this (and the rest as well) game would have is a mute the music button/volume slider and ever mode bunnies to find so it lasts longer. Works flawlessly with Proton (7.0-2). .
