Atomic Girls
Playtime: 51 minutes
Achievements: 40 of 40 (100%)
Review: A not particularly good and quite lazily made memory game (the tiles you flip are literally just one solid color and they repeat multiple times in the same level) with 40 levels to play. Couldn't care less for the images either, but that is just me and it is a personal thing. Works without any problems on Linux with Proton (9.0-2).
Cars and Girls
Playtime: 34 minutes
Achievements: 40 of 40 (100%)
Review: It could have been an ok puzzle game with 40 jigsaw puzzles between 12 and 74 pieces, however the fact that you always see the image you are supposed to put together with the exact jigsaw shapes bellow where you are supposed to place them completely ruins the point of a jigsaw. Couldn't care less for the images either, but that is just me and it is a personal thing. Works without any problems on Linux with Proton (9.0-2).

Papa's Freezeria Deluxe
Playtime: 25.5 hours
Achievements: 90 of 90 (100%)
Review: This game is absolute pure nostalgia for my childhood. And while it is a good game and it has a ridiculous amount of ingredients/customers/recipes/clothing/decorations to unlock it does however come with some annoying issues: it is too way too easy, it could do with some more upgrades you could buy, some animations are unnecessarily slow and could be speed up/skipped, it gets repetitive. Works fine on Linux with Proton (9.0-1).
Hidden Cats in New York
Playtime: 1.5 hours
Achievements: 52 of 52 (100%)
Review: A good hidden object game where you have to find 757 scattered cats around a main and 6 bonus levels. On the main level each section gets colored as you find all the cats in it which is really satisfying to see. On the bonus levels also get colored, but only once you finish the whole level. Moving cars are a nice touch and idea, but also kinda annoying to deal with. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0-2).
Hidden Cats in London
Playtime: 47 minutes
Achievements: 44 of 44 (100%)
Review: A good hidden object game where you have to find 558 scattered cats around a main and 6 bonus levels. On the main level each section gets colored as you find all the cats in it which is really satisfying to see. On the bonus levels also get colored, but only once you finish the whole level. Moving cars are a nice touch and idea, but annoying to deal with. I had one cat not appear in advanced mode till I reloaded. Works fine on Linux with Proton (9.0-2).
Hidden Cats in Paris
Playtime: 1.2 hours
Achievements: 46 of 46 (100%)
Review: A good hidden object game where you have to find 683 scattered cats around a main and 6 bonus levels. On the main level each section gets colored as you find all the cats in it which is really satisfying to see. On the bonus levels also get colored, but only once you finish the whole level. There is way too much noise from the sound effects and the moving cars are a nice touch and idea, but annoying to deal with. Works fine on Linux with Proton (9.0-2).

May report

I am super late, but my excuse is that I am unable to use my PC right now which has my post generator setup and I was too lazy till now to set it up on my laptop instead (it takes about 15 seconds, but I am lazy ok, leave me alone).

Completed SG wins

The Deed: Dynasty
Playtime: 5.3 hours
Achievements: 53 of 53 (100%)
Review: A decent RPG maker game with 3 different stories where your goal is not murder a specific person and get away with it by pinning the murder on someone else. In each story you have multiple weapons, evidence and people you can pin the murder to. It is decent fun however does get a bit repetitive hunting down every scenario. Game works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0).
Twizzle Puzzle: Predators
Playtime: 2.1 hours
Achievements: 100 of 100 (100%)
Review: A puzzle game with 50 levels where you just rotate the pieces around till they are facing the correct direction. The images are not great as they have some weird filter on them (or are AI generated with some weird artstyle, who knows) which makes it a lot worse than if they were just normal animal pictures. Works without any problems on Linux with Proton (9.0).
Who Let the Frog Out
Playtime: 12 minutes
Achievements: No achievements
Review: A bad, boring runner game which loves to randomly glitch out when moving left or right. Stay away. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0).
A Short Hike
Playtime: 5.7 hours
Achievements: 12 of 12 (100%)
Review: Cute exploration game about reaching the top of the mountain on the island you are on. There is a couple of things letting it down: it is pretty short; I wish there was maybe a few more quests, minigames or something else new to do; The keyboard controls are terrible, especially when it comes to controlling the boat. However that said it was still a generally pleasant experience playing it, it just could be better a lot better. Linux version of the game works fine.
Broken Sword 1 - Shadow of the Templars: Director's Cut
Playtime: 4.9 hours
Achievements: No achievements
Review: While you can definitely tell that the game is a bit older it is still a very good point and click game. Only real complaint I have about it is that the audio quality for the English voice lines was a bit mixed. Sometimes it would be good quality, sometimes bad and it would switch around a bit. Linux version of the game works without any issues.
WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.01
Playtime: 16.4 hours
Achievements: No achievements
Review:A decent enough visual novel. There are some issues with it: it sometimes feels slow; some stuff just doesn't make any sense/there are some mistakes in the text; the main character is not a very likable guy; could use a bigger variety of images. But overall the story did keep me interested till the end. Linux version of the game works fine except for missing text on the confirm/cancel buttons when selecting things.
Slap The Fly
Playtime: 16 minutes
Achievements: No achievements
Review: A dead and bad multiplayer game of humans vs animals (4 different animals you can pick between: fly, bee, spider, mouse). There is also a single player "training mode" but its really buggy when it registers "slaps" and its not not fun at all. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0-1).

She Sees Red
Playtime: 4.3 hours
Achievements: 15 of 15 (100%)
Review: A decent FMV game. The good: it is really well made and has an interesting enough story. The bad: I could tell what the twist in the story was from the very beginning and it felt a bit slow at some points. The neutral: its quite short, about 40ish minutes for a playthrough. Playing it on Linux with Proton (9.0) I came across a couple of issues: videos wouldn't play unless I pauses and unpaused the game and I had to do that at the beginning of each clip and I couldn't skip viewed scenes at all, nothing would happen when I selected it. Other than that it ran ok.
Super Sports Surgery
Playtime: 1.1 hours
Achievements: No achievements
Review: A decent game where you have to perform surgery on your patients with weird injuries and you fix them in silly ways.. There is 9 levels in total to play. The game works ok on Linux with Proton (9.0-1), however it does start lagging after about half an hour. Simple restart fixes the issue and with the game being about an hour long to complete is not too big of a problem.
Stranded In Time
Playtime: 4.1 hours
Achievements: No achievements
Review: A non particularly great point and click game. The inventory UI is pretty bad as you won't be able to reverse out of a scene with it open and it sometimes won't tell you what is the item you got it in. Linux version of the game insists on starting on the wrong (leftmost instead of main) monitor and it can get really laggy for no reason. There is way better games out there to play instead.

April report

Wow, I have managed to get a monthly post out on time, that is actually a miracle for me in the past while. Sadly doesn’t come with many games.

Wordle 2
Playtime: 1.2 hours
Achievements: 20 of 20 (100%)
Review:A pretty simple puzzle game with 100 levels where you have to find words that fit a certain theme inside of a grid. Comes with a bunch of issues: Linux support is a lie (Proton works fine (9.0)), weird achievement unlocks, missing undo feature, weird English words if not a native speaker and a ridiculous recent price increase.

Other completed games

Two Point Campus
Playtime: 66.4 hours
Achievements: 48 of 48 (100%)
Review: It is a decent management game set in the Two Point universe where you manage 12 different universities and have 17 different silly courses to pick between. A lot of the levels also come with a bit of a twist. A few issues I had: the item placement can be extremely buggy, it could use an extra "very fast" time option, the UI could use a little bit of love. It is still definitely fun and I enjoyed my time with it. Linux version of the game works without any issues.
LineWay
Playtime: 33 minutes
Achievements: 1 of 1 (100%)
Review:A really easy puzzle game with 80 levels to solve where all you have to do is to draw a line through every square. Every 10 levels you get a new mechanic added to the levels. It is ok, I just wish it was a bit harder and more challenging. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0).

March report

Late, but I wasn’t really home, so here it goes now. Also the amount of games that are actually being played by me lately is honestly depressing, but such is life I guess.

100 Capitalist Cats
Playtime: 5 minutes
Achievements: 100 of 100 (100%)
Review: A cute hidden object game where you have to find 100 hidden cats across an image (2 if you count the paid DLC). It is pretty quick and easy, but it works as it shouldn't and can't complain too much since it is free. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0).

Playtime: 1.4 hours
Achievements: 16 of 16 (100%)
Review: A decent hidden object game with 15 different images where you have to find cats and balls of yarn on them. Most of the images are pretty easy, but have nice artwork. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (9.0).

Submerged: Hidden Depths
Playtime: 6.8 hours
Achievements: 14 of 14 (100%)
Review:An exploration game where you can not fail which has some really easy and straight forward puzzles. It is not a challenge to play the game at all, but it is an enjoyable experience to explore around a mostly submerged city. I played the original 6 years ago so I don't remember the details, but I remember liking the original more than this one. Also on this one I kept getting stuck on things about when walking which is not ideal. Works with Proton (8.0-5).
100 Christmas Cats
Playtime: 1.5 hours
Achievements: 100 of 100 (100%)
Review:A cute hidden object game where you have to find 100 hidden cats across an image (2 if you count the paid DLC). It is pretty quick and easy, but it works as it shouldn't and can't complain too much since it is free. It is however a bit annoying that they changed how the achievements work a month and half after it was released forcing me to replay it if I wanted to have it completed again. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (8.0-5).

January report

I decided to switch to making monthly reports instead of weekly because I just haven’t been playing all that many games lately. And even then I managed to get this post up almost a month late. My life is a mess lol.

We Were Here Expeditions: The FriendShip
Playtime: 2.5 hours
Achievements: 12 of 12 (100%)
Review:An ok-ish addition to the co-op We Were Here series. It is pretty short with only 3 puzzles to solve but still pretty fun to play through and lose your faith in your friend/have your friend lose faith in you. Also it was given away for free by the developers so can't complain too much about it. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (8.0-4).

Goodbye 2023

Happy New Year everyone! :)

This year I have completed 97 games (not counting simply beaten games here) which is 27 games less than last year. 2023 was definitely a shitshow of a year where work and some other personal stuff got in the way of gaming, but I have the feeling 2024 is going to be a good one, even tho maybe not for the gaming front.

Fourth week of December

One last weekly post from me which is also late, but in my defense I was on vacation for New Years.

We are also not gonna comment on the final balance of games for 2023 because its just sad.

Current balance of acquired - completed games: 142 - 97 = -45

Review: The concept and the images for this jigsaw game are needless to say questionable, but it is honestly not a bad jigsaw game at all. Has 5 different difficulty levels (from 4x4 to 10x16) and an option to sort edge pieces from the rest which is great. I honestly wouldn't mind playing a version with some more normal images. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (8.0-4).

Review: A really really short and easy platformer game where you have to find 5 missing chickens. There is not much to the game, but it is cute, free and I assume aimed at children so can't complain too much about it. Works without any issues on Linux with Proton (8.0-4).
