I apologize for the delay and unfinished state of this months thread. Sadly I don't have the time to work more on it right now and I will do it as soon as I can.

December was absolutely insane, thank you to everyone who participated! The stats are the following:

  • 5926 achievements have been achieved
  • 3917.6 hours have been played
  • 310 games have been beaten
  • 125 people have participated and beaten at least one game.

Hope to see you all again this month :)

Due to timezones/people not being online 24/7 I am still accepting any edits/applications for December for the next couple of days (till the December thread is closed).


The theme for this month is

The little planet did it again!

(Thank you to seNs for the suggestion!)

Games that qualify for it are:
Retro games
Difficult games
Survival games
Fast-Paced games
Atmospheric games
Replay Value games
Space/Space Simulator games
Time Travel/Time Management games
Real-Time/Real-Time with pause/Real Time Tactics games
Games won around New Year's Day (Dec 23 - Jan 10)
Games where you are involved in a New Year's Day Party
Games won where your chances of winning were 1 in 12, 1 in 365 or 1 in 366

Don't have any game that fits the theme?

For this month I have decided to let people play their normal backlog games in case no win qualifies. Please use the "Note" section when submitting the game to inform me of this situation.


You can submit this months games you are going to play here:

https://pagywosg.xyz/events/8

I would still appreciate if you list the games you are going to play bellow just in case something goes wrong (yes, I do have backups of the site, but it only backups once a day) and so I can quickly reply you to the comment in case of any issues with the games.

FAQ.


Don't want to login into the site?

No worries, you can just leave the names of the games you are going to play in the comments bellow and I will add you into to the site myself at the end of the month.

Updated all games statuses and simply bumping the thread :)

It was a record month for me, at least in terms of played time (~108h), but sadly only 6 games (compared to the last month 15 entries) were involved due to a massive amount of time I've spent on Depp Sky Derelicts.

Malwarebytes Browser Guard strongly recommends against going to the site, and since you nicely offered in the OP to add users who don't want to do it themselves...

Not sure how much I'll be playing as I'm tryna binge the free Origin month and finish Batman for PoP but will see!

I was a tiny bit bummed that I was so far down the leaderboard after thinking I'd played quite a bit this month, but they were short games...and 35th out of 100+ isn't that shabby. :P Kudos to everyone who took part!

I need more luck sent my way cuz I'm stuck on a mission in tank battle that literally seems impossible, playing it on the easiest difficulty I'm given 3 tanks an armored car 1 mortar and 1 group of infantry and am expected to prevent like 10 or so matildas from driving across a railroad that is like 3 times as long as I have units. I'm beginning to think I'll never beat it cuz the enemies just drive straight through and don't really stop to fight.

Super Cloudbuilt - fast paced
Outside of the event, I will also try to play Assassin's Creed II, which is a bit time-travelly.
To finish either one, I will have to do some time management in the meta game.

Edit: There's no way I'll finish Super Cloudbuilt by the end of the month... Instead I submitted and finished Valley (atmospheric), and I'll also try for Strider (retro), which I previously submitted and failed to finish.

Picked out a handful so I can pick one to play while progressing, we'll see how it will go :D

Pyre: Won around NYE (Dec 27th)
Highlands: Won around NYE (dec 25th) - done! It's a tedious boardgame with VN overlay disguised as a strategy game. Okayish.
AR-K: Difficult tag - done! Great start, kind of bad chapter 2, but ch 3 has good reviews. Hoping for good final chapter release.
Trackless: Atmospheric
Crossing Souls: Retro
Cargo Commander: Space
Dex: Atmospheric

Just Cause 2: I don't want to trigger my more obsessive personality, so just messed around along with the story, 22% completion. Pretty solid with dated elements. Huge but repetitive, repetitive but kinda zen. Environments and just travelling around is its absolute forte imo.

Absolutely out of the blue sky: SOMA (atmospheric,. Hooooly fuck. After 3.5 years, I finally finished the game. Couldn't play it in its original form for multiple reasons, but pacifist mode made it work. And it was such an absolutely amazing story... 2020 is young, but absolutely game of the year category one here. Absolutely worth the wait, blown my socks off.

Red Johnson's Chronicles - 1+2 - Steam Special Edition
While it literally doesn't have tags besides Adventure, Action, Point & Click and Detective, it has a very strong neo-noir style - a classic noir detective story taking place in the dystopic future. It even has black and white, narrated cutscenes! :D

It will be awesome if I succeed at finishing 2-3 at least :3

No worries, it's usually any wins that fit the theme or if you do not have any left then any backlog games that fit the theme. And I guess if you do not have any wins or backlog games that fit the theme then any win will do, but we have not had that happen yet.

Hi, it turns out that these were not valid games either, because I have unplayed wins that fit the theme. I didn't catch that distinction. I have a handful of unplayed wins that I have no intention of playing for various reasons, so I'll need to be sure to check against the theme each time. It was no matter, since I wasn't entering any GA; I was just trying to participate in an SG event, and I like to support the theme of playing won games.

Game Category Status Notes
Chasm Won Around New Year's Day Beaten Won on December 26
Cities in Motion 2 Won Around New Year's Day Playing Won on January 8
Hot Tin Roof: The Cat Wore A Fedora 1 in 12 Chance of Winning Verified Exactly 12 entries
Snowball! Retro Playing Achievements bugged, screenshots required
Splatter: Zombie Apocalypse Atmospheric ??? Bugged but suddenly fixed?

Final notes:

Chasm was... okay. I feel like Sundered and A Robot Named Fight both do the procedural metroidvania thing much better. Finished at the very last moment, whew!

Cities in Motion 2 is taking some time to get into. The tutorial is pretty bad, but I think it's got potential so I'm going to give it another try.

I couldn't get Splatter to work at all at first. But the morning after I gave up and deleted my entry from the PAGYWOSG website, there was a news post about the developer reclaiming control of their work after six years(!) and hopefully this new patch will fix most of the problems? (It did.) Very strange situation, I'd be interested in knowing the story behind it.

Awesome theme! To tie it in with the book more, can I suggest games that have a tiger, games about religion/with a religious protagonist, or games involving sailing or the ocean?

My uncultured self didn't even know the movie was based on a book ;)

Interesting! Please suggest a game that has important circular objects or living beings. I am intrigued by this and suspect that you have something in mind here :D

Emmm Zup?, anyway maybe Fly'n could fit in that category, they're almost circular, at least the third form works like a ball, also games that you play with balls like Hacky Zack or Wonder Wickets will also fit

So basically everything which is round and has a bigger impact on the game like Portals, balls, bulb heads, ball heads but not like a HOG where you just have to search for a ball :)

99 Problems but this ain't one

Two ways to take it

  • Relaxing
  • Casual
  • Experience
  • Family Friendly
  • Party themed
  • Games with easy, soft, peace or any synonym on its name/tags

or

  • Difficult
  • Puzzles
  • Solving problems
  • Investigation
  • Criminal Cases
  • Procedural Generation (different problems every time)
  • Games with hard, solid, violent or any synonym on its name/tags

How about games with "Procedural Generation" tag? Means that the game is randomly generated every time so you have to face different "problems"

Not an idea but a suggestion - Maybe we could bring back the ideas (the ones that didn't make it) for March last year and add them to the poll as well?

There were some great ideas - not only for March - that weren't chosen and maybe they might get a shot this year :)

Thanks for the reminder! Got caught up with work and then the lunar celebrations came around :P

That said, I really liked the "Rule of Three" theme suggested by Saucisse for March last year. It sounded so grand like something straight out of a LOTR book :)

If I couldn't use the theme exactly as suggested by Saucisse, then "Omne Trium Perfectum" would be a pretty nice "replacement theme". The phrase means "everything that comes in threes is perfect, or, every set of three is complete" (source)

The games that qualify for the Rule of Three should have:

  • "3" in their app ID. Bonus points for having 3 threes in the app ID
  • Have 3 or any variation of the number in the game title
  • Gameplay involving a team of three playable characters (example, Mutant Year Zero)
  • "Games where you have to obtain exactly three of something (three parts, elements, special magic items)" (taken verbatim)
  • Games that can be completed in or around 3 hours (HLTB link required to qualify)
  • Third installment of any game series (had to include this because some sequels of games don't have "3" in the title)
  • Game trilogies - any game within said trilogy (the first, the second or the third). Bonus points if you complete/beat all three games within the trilogy

Oh shit, I am so sorry. SeNs just made me aware that I missed this theme completely. I did not realize you decided to submit the theme in the end because you never directly replied to me about it and therefore I never seen this comment and when making the thread for this month (it is already done and I can't edit the poll :/ ) because I just looked at the top comments since the rest of the comments are usually just suggestions/discussions about the theme that are usually implemented into the first comment.
Once again I am very very very sorry, it was a genuine mistake :(

Edit: I found a solution how to kinda fix this, but I am still very much sorry for missing you.

That is definitely a nice idea I will keep in mind for any months that might only have 2 suggestions as when there is 6 like this time around I think it is already a bit much to chose from. Other than that as Moony said you can suggest one of them to come back yourself :)

I have a theme about cats. Although it's also about Lovecraft stuff 😺

The Cats of Ulthar

  • games featuring cats
  • games having "cats" in its title
  • lovecraftian
  • horror
  • atmospheric
  • games featuring Cthulhu or having "Cthulhu" in its title
  • short games (HLTB from 1 to 5 hours)
  • games won from a user with a cat avatar (I know people can change avatars, but as long as they had a cat one in the moment of verification - it's good)

Huh.... You mean, December? If yes, how do I do it (the site does not accept December edits anymore)? If no, don't worry, I know this has been a lot of work (and, besides, having an extra +1 completion in the site is not that crucial).

Question about the DLC?

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Love Is A Hurtin' Thing is actually catching up. People might be teaching me a lesson here.

Yeah this bit: Games where you won the DLC
That could either mean you need to have won both dlc and game which feels quite restrictive so that wasn't what I thought you would do.
Or you got people doing normal backlog as long as they won a dlc.
Now I'm writing this though (it can also fit with the games that have dlc) would that count every dlc be it like soundtrack or pure gameplay dlc only

Any kind of DLC won (without having to have won the base game) is fine as long as you either beat the base game or have beat the DLC(if base game previously beaten, applies to where it can be beaten and proven as such).

What do you mean they are completely useless? They put whatever you are linking to to the top of the page and highlight it a bit. It is only a bit of a problem on the Q&A at the bottom since they can't go to the top as there is not enough text bellow them :/

Ufff this one is a question for Moony (who came up with the theme) not me so please forward this question to her instead. Tho I think they should be pretty strict since they are based on the Chinese zodiac animals.

Funnily I just read an article about the next Chinese year which will be the zodiac sign 鼠 and it explained that this sign can be translated to rat AND mouse :D

Google confirms this

Also I think the dragon should not be strictly the asian one but also the western one and wyverns otherwise this would be too difficult for everyone :)

And for monkey best would be to allow all primates excluding humans

But maybe the other theme wins then you don't have to care about math or biology :P

and what is the rule on games that require many plays to get the "true ending"

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

The previous month is usually closed on day 1 or 2 of the following month. After that you won't be able to mark the games as beaten/completed. If you have beaten/completed a game on time, but you have forgotten to mark it, just let mouse or myself know and we will do it for you.

If you have not finished the game in the previous month and it fits the next month's theme too, you are welcome to add it to the new month. Just fill out any achievements and the time already spent.

Any games with multiple endings are considered beaten once you have reached one ending. Doesn't matter which one.

I have a question about the "Real Time/etc." categories. Is it supposed to be something specific, or can it be anything that's not turn-based? ie: would any platformer, shoot-em-up, FPS fit, or would it only be stuff like strategy games (which are traditionally grouped as real-time or turn-based)?

1 month ago

Comment has been collapsed.

This basically works for all categories: if it is either tagged as such on the Steam store or you can make a decent argument that it should fit the tag it goes. So yes, technically those would fit.
