Countdown until event ends

Congrats to everyone who participated in January! The stats are the following:

  • achievements have been achieved
  • hours have been played
  • games have been beaten
  • 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 January for the next couple of days (till the January thread is closed).


The theme for this month is

Never Gonna Give You Up

(Thank you to Saucisse for the suggestion!)
Tags: Emotional, Romance, Story Rich (short for Richard), RPG (obviously short for roll-playing games)
Games with a character named Rick or Richard *
Games with rolling *
Games that make you give up (the Difficult tag is fine, but also games that you have started and then quit playing for a while) *
Games where you let someone down or someone lets you down (e.g., any co-op game) *
Games where you run around *
Games with a desert / a dessert *
Games that make you cry (e.g. sad stories, character death)*
Games where you say goodbye*
Games where you tell lies*
Games where you hurt others*

* Please provide some kind of explanation/proof (screenshots or link to some proof) in the notes or it will be rejected.

No win that fits the theme or played them all?

Please use the "Note" section when submitting the game to inform me of this situation.

FAQ


Who can participate

Anyone who does not have any unactivated wins, multiple wins or a VAC ban. You can participate even if you don't have any SteamGifts wins, see the "Have already completed all your wins?" below as it applies to this scenario too.



Extra Rules:

  1. No comment on this thread? If there is something wrong with the game you submitted it gets deleted. With this many participants we can't chase after everyone.
  2. No comment on this thread = not invited to join/re-join the group.
  3. Any idle time (e.g. idleing for cards, answering the phone/door, looking up solutions, etc..while the game is still running) needs to be added to the time before the month. We want to have times that are as "clean" as possible for the leaderboard. Any time that is higher than 2x HLTB time will be considered as abnormally high and will raise questions.
  4. If we ask for proof that a game fits a certain category, please link the appropriate proof (e.g. screenshots, explanation, videos, etc.) in the notes section of the game entry on the event page. Same goes for the ending screenshots for games without achievements.
  5. DLC: I've won/bought a story DLC, can I (re-)play the game? If the DLC has achievements go ahead. If it has an ending achievement reaching that is enough. If there is no ending achievement you will need to complete all DLC achievements for it to count. If you have more than one story DLC then you can play each one as separate entry for different months as long as the main game fits the theme. Please only add the main game to the event page and note in the notes section that you are going for DLC achievements.
  6. I've won a game bundle. Do I have to play all games for it to count? If the bundle gives you several games with different steam ID's feel free to play them one by one.
    If it gives you one bundle of games with one steam ID then it depends. Do they each have achievements of their own (including an ending achievement)? Then go ahead and play them separately. Though make a note in the notes section, so we know what to look for. Non achievement games or games that play continuously (e.g. all entries play through without an ending between them) are not allowed atm since we do not have a good way to track them separately.
  7. The event officially opens at 00:00 UTC, any playtime/achivements before that won't be counted.

Bump for Children of Morta finished. Nice game overall, it has some obvious flaws though. Either way, worth going for completion.

Another bump for Children of Morta completed and no more unplayed wins. I guess I'll start with some games of my own on march, the rest of this month I'll go for some of those Epic freebies I had interest in and which obviously don't count for the event.

I have no small games unfortunately, I actually think Joe Dever's Lone Wolf, 20-ish hours, is my shortest!
I have no one to blame but myself though, alas!

I have Elmarion Dragon Time but I can't play it or complete it because it's EA and unfinished, so playing it would feel like cheating.

Two questions. First, can we count subsequent playthroughs of games we've already beaten? I have some games in my library that require multiple playthroughs to 100% the achievements, but which I have beaten at least once. I'll start my list with some completely unplayed games in case the answer is no. Second, how does one contribute to available giveaways for everyone who beats a game? I'd be interested in donating for next month or whenever there's a spot available.

Games I intend to beat; subject to change. No current SG wins

First question, depends a bit on the game. A game where you just have multiple endings, e.g. a VN with different endings where you just reload a previous save and make different desicions, the answer will most likely be no. A game where you have to replay the whole game either with a different char or a different difficulty setting and it has achievments for it, answer will be probably yes. Though we usually like for there to be at least 1 other entry that is beatren too.
So basically it is okay under certain circumstances, but not as only entry. If you really have only that one game you want/can play then ask us beforehand and we will tell you if it is okay or not.

For the second one you usually contact me on steam and we will discuss it further^^

I wanted to ask the same question as Tiajma. I've started We Were Here Together last month (which is a coop puzzle-solving game), and finished the game 2 days ago. But to get all achievements you have to play the game again doing the other half of every puzzle. (You have to do at least 7 of 10 chapters but I'd rather replay the first 3 too.)

Would this be eligible? Also I was thinkink about playing Little Misfortune too (has the Story Rich tag), should I put WWHT on the site too then?

2 months ago

Comment has been collapsed.

1) If you want to complete the game (get all missing achievements) it is usually always okay, even as only entry. Only exception is if there is barely any playtime left.
2) If you want to play the whole game again to get a different ending with a different ending achievement (so we can verify it was played again) it is fine, even as an only entry.
3) If you want to play the game again because you got an unfinished DLC (story DLC's only), it is okay as long as there are achivemenets for that DLC. If the DLC has an ending achievement it is enough to beat the DLC. If there is no ending achievement completion of all DLC achievments is required for it to count. In such a case a note in the note section of the event page is required, e.g. beating/completing DLC XYZ

So yeah since you want to complete your game it is okay, even as an only entry. Especially since you want to replay it completely :D

Well, I've finally completed the collection! =)

Turns out the 1st part of the collection (Ice Rose) is very different from the 2nd part (Frozen Beauty) in terms of polish. The 1st part lacks voice acting, a map, and felt like a relatively empty world (and the music was really mediocre, in my opinion!). They fixed all these problems in the 2nd part of the collection -- almost like they took player feedback and incorporated it! :) Either that, or they might have played an Artifex Mundi HOG! :D

Anyway, I noticed that while the 2nd part does have Achievements in-game, neither part of the collection has Achievements on Steam. I have screenshots of the Achievements collection for the 2nd part, and would a screenshot suffice of the 1st part saying "You have successfully completed the game."?

Hey, I have a quick question. I have now played two of my wins but the first was unplayable (broken game, devs are aware). The second, Deleveled, is the hardest game I've ever played. I'd really like to beat a game this month so I'd really like to play Dream Daddy again but get a different ending (the bad Amanda ending) which means I'd have to play through it again. I saw your comment underneath and I think it should be ok because I have to play through the game again to get the other ending.

You will make Nin very proud if you replay Dream Daddy. It's one of her favorite games.

Starting slow and easy for now with something relaxing. Not sure what else I'll play, depending on the mood

Wow I don't know how some of those HLTB times are calculated but Iron Danger in 10h? I didn't even do half the side quests and I clocked at almost 3 times that! The fighting was a real pain in the a** with odd camera angles. I don't know. Maybe I didn't figure it out and others did. Maybe there were "trainers" involved? It just seems like an odd one.
I mean I took a lot of time on Shadows Awakening because I was enjoying the combat, exploring every inch of the map and doing sidequests that involved a lot of back and forth so yeah ok, I get you can just play the very strict minimum storyline but on Iron Danger, I don't know how people did it. Anyone here played it?

My first won here on SG - Just Cause 2, never played that series before and I'm happy with this game - already 22.4 hours played, half achievements got (26/50), not so close to the finish but there is so many activities except main story so i think i'm here for another 10-20 hours more.

Hi VicViperV,

welcome to the event. The game looks fine to me. I have added it for you to the current event on the event page too. We use that to track all the achievements and play time and to distribute the invite only GA links to everyone who qualified. You can log in there using your steam account. When you are finsihed with your games just change the status on the event page to beaten/completed. Then we can check it and approve it.
Generally if the game has no achievements, make a screenshot of the end credits or finishing scenes so we can verify that you've beaten the game.
The comment here in thread is basically so we can contact you if something is wrong with your game entry or if we have questions.
Other than that, have fun with your game. I am crossing my fingers that you can beat it in time :D
Btw if you do not have any fitting wins left feel free to join the event with backlog games that fit the theme ;)

one is a score attack that is way above my skill lvl
the second is survival MMO, no story/end game
when can you call these type beaten?

While the topic of "beating" endless games is worthy of becoming a source of never ending conflict for our society in our future, Devil Daggers have exactly 1 achievement given for surviving 500 seconds. Being a cutoff point given directly by developer, I'd say this is the point at which game probably becomes only more difficult by introducing more enemies instead of new enemies (so no new content after that), meaning game could be considered beaten at that point.

yeah i agree, the one achievement is there
im just wondering for the future, i already gave up on Devil Daggers
and the MMO was Last Oasis, also didnt specify it because its just a general thought i had

Well beating endless games is a tricky thing and depends a lot on the game. Usually I'd say either get 25% of achievements or average main story HLTB time, as long as it is not ideled.

So for Sunless Sea that would mean either 15h (new game play time) or 14 achievements.
Devil Daggers I have to concur with sallachim, can't really give you a beaten here unless you actually survived it for the achievement, seems to be a good ending point. It has the diffcult tag for a reason -_-

Eagle island is difficult but manageable, Devil Daggers is brutal. best i got was 70 sec :(
i was just thinking about the concept because i could only "beat" eagle island.
while i have been having fun in Last Oasis there is no end game, at some point ill just drop it and play something else. so when can it be beaten?

Well once you have beaten it once you can mark it as such. Was always this way. From what I have gathered by looking through playthroughs and guides there is a story mode in this game which at least has 1 (if not several) endings by beating a boss that gives you the end credits. If there is no achivement for this and you do not see yourself completing the game, just make a screenshot of the end credits.

I've never participated before, and I know it's a bit last minute 😅, but I completed one of my wins the other day – Shady Part of Me.
It looks like it should qualify under "Games where you run around" since it's a puzzle platformer and you do a lot of running around 😄

That I like in SG - you have chances to won game that you have interest in, but not that much that you want to buy it. So little luck and you can try it legally.

Perhaps I misunderstood something from the title of the topic. But isn't the point about playing and completing the games you won at SG? As I understand, if I started the game and am currently playing it, even if I am at the very beginning, l this might be the starting point for participation this month, the main thing is that I try to complete it before the countdown ends? Can you explain please.

I have a few suggestions off the top of my head:

  • Games where you can take a bath or shower
  • Games with the words April, Shower or Rain in the title (at the very least that gives everyone with Heavy Rain a chance)
  • Games where you can grow flowers or other plants ("...bring May flowers!")
  • Games with a weather mechanic

Basic rules for gifters:

2) GA should be finishing in the first week of the following month, somewhere between the 1st and the 7th.
3) Eligible are all people that have beaten a game in that months event. You can find a list of elegible people under the leaderboard post in the event thread.
4) After you made the GA, send me the link so I can add it to the event page and list your game in the event thread. . (you can send it to me on steam or discord if you want, will give you my ID if that is the prefered method)

They allow you to play your dlcs, you don't just need to play the main game and keep it at that. I don't know if they can stop your stats updating since I never saw this sort of thing pop up before, just put them into idle time/achievements

I'm guessing its deus ex which you are talking about and you even mentioned you were gonna do the dlc too so its totally fine to keep adding to the game. Have fun with it

As Cece said it is totally fine for you to play the DLC's that you have bought and it adding time to your entry. There is no way other than changing it manually as time before the month, if you do not want the time to appear, because it grabs all the time of that specific game ID, so unless it is a stand alone DLC that can be played without the main game it will always add time to the main game.

I'm actually hunting down the DLC achievements now. Main game has only the half of total, others are for DLC and a special game mode. It's too hard for me though, I might give up after I reach about 75% :)

So am I even allowed to enter the event with the second game after already entering once with the first?

Comment has been collapsed.

There are two type of bundles from steam:

1) those that give you a single game entry (with 1 ID), that consists of several games in it like Deponia The Complete Journey. With those you have to play all of the games to have it count as beaten atm. This might change in the future though, have not made up my mind 100% yet.

2) those that with 1 key give you several games with different game ID's, for example like the HB key for The Bard's Tale IV gave you the games The Bard's Tale IV and The Bard's Tale Trilogy . If this is the case you can play each of the games as a new entry for the event. But if you do, please note it down in the notes section that you got this game from a bundle with the win you got it from to avoid us questioning it. Because even though we know a lot of the existing bundles we do not know every one ;)

Now question is, would it fit the month's theme or not? The tags don't, but if anyone who is familiar with the game's contents could tell me (without much spoilers) if it would fit any other criteria, it'd be much appreciated. :D

I figure if there's a chance of fitting, it'd be likelier for this month's theme since the game doesn't look like it'd fit next month at all.

I would think maybe Games where you run around, if you look for example at the third trailer video on the store page at around 0:57 and following. Also it seems to be very violent in parts, though not sure if you commit the violence (Games where you hurt others) or only others are hurt by other people.

I wouldn't mind the platformer stages so much if the instadeath ones weren't goddamn everywhere. The controls are decent, a bit unwieldy but perfectly serviceable and nowhere close to the worst I've had to suffer through, but the fact that platform stages are a good fraction of the game and the ungodly number of ways those stages can one-shot you means that the game absolutely needed incredible platform controls and not merely decent. I feel like the RPG elements really had to step up to make up for the platforming sections. The TBS portion was an unexpected but pleasant surprise.

it all depends on how many people wrote down their times and what they considered completed. astats is definitely a good alternative if your time is well over that and want something better.
