Games I cannot wait for (and typically backed on Kickstarter): Friday Night Funkin (full version), Beacon Pines, Coral Island, This Dead Winter
Been focusing a bit more on my book backlog than my games, but the Wholesome Direct had me grabing two new games and wishlisting like… 30. So here’s one of the games I grabbed!
The playtime should make it obvious on why I am combining all 9 of these into one review. Today I made an impulse purchase to buy the rest of the games (having already played 100 hidden snails), and refused to let them sit on my backlog. So I played them back to back. They were something nice and simple to do while feeling pretty crappy, and reminded me a lot of the types of magazine-ish games I loved playing as a kid.
Overall, they’re all very easy;. Gnomes and Cupcakes the most so. Eternals was the only one that required more than just finding the hidden object - you had to puzzle solve to reveal a few. Mushrooms only posed a challenge in that the mushrooms actually suit the scenery, and feel natural, whereas I can usually just look for what seems ‘off’. Snails 2 had a fun twist of being colored the second half of the game.
Very simple games with interesting art styles. Definitely not great on the money:time ratio, but still pretty cheap in the first place.
Finished some short games!
