Revenge of the copy pasta!

Hello and welcome to the madness!
The challenge is simple: Play and beat any 6 games, starting today, that have been featured in any given Humble Monthly/Choice bundle in one month.

The prize: Persona 5 Royal

Game length does not matter and I'm not looking for 100% achievement runs. So long as you play and beat 6 games, I'm happy. You can go easy mode and play a bunch of 1h games or go crazy and play 6 +30h games. So long as they were in a monthly at a given point, it is all good.

Just post a comment with either screenshots/ achievements showing that you fulfilled the criteria and I'll add you on Steam and give you the link. Feel free to share your thoughts on the games you've played, but it is not required.

FAQ:

Why you doing this?

I hate money. That and I realized I've been subbed to the monthly for over seven years (yes it has been that long, I checked) and it occurred to me that I've barely touched the games I've gotten from it, let alone played them. Figured the same would be true for a few others, so I figured this is a good way to change that. A sensible person would probably unsub in this situation, but please refer to the beginning as to why that will not happen.

I've played the first X minutes of a game, can I pick it for the event?

No. You cannot have any play time or achievements prior to the start of the event. The only exception is idle time from farming Steam cards.

Can I play a MP only game?

No. It needs to have an "end" in order for me to count it as beaten, so it needs to have a campaign/story mode.

If a game was sold as a non-Steam copy in a bundle (origin/uplay/drm-free/etc), can I pick it as a choice if I own a Steam copy?

No. The reason being that those who own a Steam copy would have an extra option that would not be available to everyone who bought the same bundle. If the game was originally sold as a non-Steam copy, but Humble later provided steam keys to everyone who bought the bundle, then the game would be allowed.

Why six games?

The first few monthlies had 6/7 games in them so I went with that.

How long are you going to do this?

Until my credit card statements gives me nightmares.

This event "ends" on December 6th when the next HB Choice releases, though the giveaway itself will end the next day. If you manage to finish game number six in between that time, feel free to post, but know that I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to give you the link in time.

Good luck, have fun and stay safe.
Thanks for reading, and forget to use the power of friendship..

Some blunder happened with one of the achievements in Hidden Folks, probably because I use Playnite to run games, as the date for that achievement shows as 1970 in playnite, but I'm willing to provide more screenshots if needed. If you won't accept that game anyway, please let me know early so I can start another one.

Q.U.B.E. 2 (The Truthful Enemy and The Flawed Teacher are achievements for two endings, remaining locked achievements are mostly for DLCs). Had fairly low expectations for this game, since Q.U.B.E. 1 seemed quite rough, but this one is quite alright. Not a masterpiece by any stretch of imagination, but a pretty good, albeit short and easy first-person puzzler.

Genesis Noir. Nice art, really good animation, poor gameplay. Wasn't sold on the narrative as well. And music is not good actually. So overall it was an annoying disappointment.

Röki. Note to achievement hunters: play this one with a guide or be prepared to do two full walkthroughs. And the gameplay gets really repetitive in the second half of the game. Otherwise a decent adventure I guess, but I had higher expectations for this one.

Emily is Away <3. I like this series. And this game at least up there with the previous one if not better. That is at least when I'm not thinking about multiple endings and not finding out how they work. But for one blind playthrough it was really immersive.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. Well, it's a platform fighter. Feels a bit cheap with how its UI made, characters voiced and the content. But characters look pretty good, and it's just a simple brawling fun.

TOHU. Another disappointment for the most part. Very mediocre point-and-click both in puzzles and the story. One might argue that in art direction as well.

Started the challenge with Destroy All Humans!, but it wasn't very fun, so I dropped it.

Challenge accepted, I think I will go with: actually played only 2 previosly stated games, here is december list, ordered starting from the best

  1. Deponia Doomsday - Oct'16 [Completed (
    And everything comes full circle.)]
    recently finished trilogy, was going to play it anyway. For sure the best one this month.
  2. Superliminal - Aug'21 Completed - mind blown, also nicest puzzle game this month
  3. Hidden Folks - Oct'18 [Completed] - very relaxing, took some time to find all
  4. The Norwood Suite - Feb'18 (Completed) - very short and very strange, like what actually happened?
  5. Lara Croft GO Apr'18 Completed (Ophidiophobia) - ok-ish puzzle, few years back played Deus Ex GO, which was better in my opinion
  6. AER Memories of Old - Apr'18 [Completed] - bit let down, very simple, at least flying mechanic is nice.

7. Mind Scanner [Paused...] dropped for now, might complete in the future

Status: 6/6
