Imposter Factory: The partially faded memories of the earlier experiences made this even more enjoyable ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Megaquarium: I picked up the DLCs and enjoyed my time with them ๐Ÿ‘
Yuletide Legends: Same formula, different pictures, as to be expected from Artifex Mundi
Darkestville Castle: Decent point and click, better since I got it on sale ๐Ÿ‘
Edgar: I laughed maybe twice, the movement is awkward and several achievements are a waste of time ๐Ÿ‘Ž
Detective Grimoire: Uses Adobe Air which means it should probably not be sold anymore ๐Ÿ‘Ž
Irony Curtain: It was OK, slower than it needed to be with missed opportunities to make it more enjoyable
Occult Crime Police: Eccentric and probably intended from an audience other than myself, but free
TARTARUS: Disappointment on so many levels. It is almost like they consulted with me and did everything I suggested they not do ๐Ÿ‘Ž
Fate of Dynasty: Free, decent experience ๐Ÿ‘
How We Got Here: Quirky but free ๐Ÿ‘
If On A Winter's Night, Four Travelers: Somehow this is free. If you like dark, atmospheric games this is a must-play. Then, pay what you want on itch or buy the DLC on Steam ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

It has been a while since an update so I thought I would post what I have been playing recently.

Terraria: I enjoyed enough time playing that it was worth it, but eventually I was not having fun anymore and stopped.
Stardew Valley: It had been a few years and there was so much new to explore
Spiritfarer: Beta testing and playing the new updates
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: I finally got modern-enough hardware to play this game at decent settings
Koi Farm: A relaxing few hours, very enjoyable
A Short Hike: If the game were designed for PCs I would have enjoyed it significantly more. Unfortunately it was a mix of annoying and interesting.
Megaquarium: I picked up the DLCs for this game and am playing them now
Beholder: An interesting concept but both boring and stressful. It was free so I do not care about not finishing it.

I also bought Imposter Factory during the Winter Sale but I have not played it yet.

2021 Q1 Review

Steam reviews are up for most of these games.

I had been playing fewer games so I stopped posting monthly. I probably should have posted in February considering I played (and completed) 10 HOGs and a few others. I am currently playing 2 (very) different games.

2020 Q4 Review

Steam reviews are up for some of these games.

I have not had much time to play lately, but below are the ones I have been able to spend at least some time with. It also seems to be the case that I need to start planning my next build:

  • MewnBase

    24 hours playtime

    20 of 21 achievements

  • Planet Explorers

    39 minutes playtime

    0 of 16 achievements

  • Perfect Vermin

    0 of 18 achievements

  • TARTARUS

    15 minutes playtime

    1 of 8 achievements

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider

    8 minutes playtime

    0 of 99 achievements

Steam reviews are up for most of these games.

  • Forge Quest

    67 minutes playtime

    3 of 49 achievements

  • Graveyard Keeper

    134 hours playtime

    83 of 83 achievements

  • Littlewood

    43 hours playtime

    no achievements

  • Life is Strange 2

    5 hours playtime

    9 of 46 achievements

Someone kindly sent me a gift copy of Forge Quest, unfortunately I found it boring and have not found a reason to continue playing it.

I finished the Graveyard Keeper DLC, but have it installed still in the hopes that maybe another will be announced sometime around Halloween. That probably will not happen, but I can hope.

Littlewood was fun for some time but was quite shallow.

Life is Strange 2 had a good start and I will probably pick up the rest of the series at a good discount.

Steam reviews are up for all of these games.

I have played a lot of demos over the past few months, they really help confirming which games go to the wishlist and which ones can be ignored. Other than that, I finished up my Summer Sale purchases and played a few free games.

Backlog Assassinated

After more than 3 years of dedication to my backlog I finally made it. During this time, I discovered some really great games (along with several awful ones). My expectations for, and perception of, games has grown and changed - hopefully for the better. I intend to make less mistakes in the games I choose, while still taking enough chances to find some hidden gems.

Steam reviews are up for all of these games.

First, I addressed the final unplayed game in my library, which had just appeared. This encouraged me to go back and complete the previously โ€œbeatenโ€ game.

  • Super Bit Blaster XL

    6 hours playtime

    17 of 17 achievements

  • Bit Blaster XL

    8 hours playtime

    17 of 17 achievements

Next, I took out the remaining unfinished games. This went faster then expected because many ended up in the โ€œwonโ€™t playโ€ category - there was a reason I stopped playing them in the first place.

  • Defend Your Life

    18 hours playtime

    20 of 20 achievements

  • Big Pharma

    47 hours playtime

    18 of 25 achievements

  • Pillars of Eternity

    9 hours playtime

    0 of 48 achievements

  • Door Kickers

    12 hours playtime

  • FORCED

    8 hours playtime

  • Gryphon Knight Epic

    13 hours playtime

    43 of 70 achievements

  • Life is Hard

    6 hours playtime

    16 of 31 achievements

  • Mushroom 11

    10 hours playtime

    0 of 35 achievements

  • NO THING

    5 hours playtime

    0 of 12 achievements

  • Waveform

    2 hours playtime

    6 of 65 achievements

  • The Last Tinker: City of Colors

    6 hours playtime

    0 of 14 achievements

I then decided to check out this free game I had been waiting to try.

  • Kyle is Famous

    3 hours playtime

    25 of 58 achievements

Finally, I noticed a previously โ€œcompletedโ€ game had several new updates and many more achievements. I will play this some more, but do not expect to 100% it again.
