Progress Report: July 2019
This is my first post for BLAEO. I’m surprised it took me so long to find this site as I always wanted to be able to write a bit about games I’ve recently played. I think the gameification of clearing the backlog is an awesome idea.
I’ve got a lot of categorizing to do, but for the month of July I want to bring more games from beaten to completed..
I bought Hand of Fate during the Steam Summer Sale, I’ve been interested in it since watching Total Biscuit’s video a long time ago, specifically the card elements.
Bardbarian puts a unique twist on the top down shooter, in that you can't shoot. You play as Brad the Barbarian who has become sick of fighting all the time, and decide to put some skill points into the bard class. Playing as a bard is no easy feat though, Brad has no offensive capabilities and must rely on recruiting others to do the fighting. His party will stay nearby targeting any foolish enemy that comes within range. If the town is to be saved though, Brad must keep his party alive by providing buffs and keeping them out of enemy fire.
Plantera is an addicting farming themed clicker. The games simplicity is it's strongest point, click on produce to convert it to gold. Use gold to buy more plants, bushes, trees, and animals. Buy land expansions to get farm workers who will pick up produce for you. You can easily lose hours to this game trying to build a gold farm empire. The Loot Hero cameo is pretty awesome too since he drops a boat load of gold on each appearance.
Octodad is a crazy physics game where you play a perfectly normal man that tries to fit in with an unforgiving society. This game will brings out your inner masochist as you struggle to get a grip on it's wacky controls. When I wasn't yelling at the screen, I was laughing my ass off at how ridiculous the game was.
