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

  • 3252.2 hours have been played
  • 216 games have been beaten
  • 110 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

Love Is A Hurtin' Thing

(Thank you to Garandro for the suggestion!)

Games that qualify for it are:
Cute games
Games where choices matter
Difficult games
Emotional games
Dating Sims
Games with Sexual Content
Family Friendly games
Survival games
Romance games
LGBTQ+ games
Psychological Horror games
Games with Coop-Mode
Games where you can have a relationship
Games where the main character lost or is losing someone important
Sad or depressing games
Games with a HLTB time of 14+ hours (main story)
Games with 14+ achievements
Games that cost 14+ points to enter a giveway.

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/9

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. If you don't make a comment and there is anything wrong with your submission the game will be deleted without asking questions. Also you won't get invited to join the group.

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

I fucked up, I missed one of the theme submissions and I can't edit the poll so we are gonna do it like this:

If you would like to vote for the Omne Trium Perfectum theme which consists of:
"3" in their app ID
Have 3 or any variation of the number in the game title
Gameplay involving a team of three playable characters
Games where you have to obtain exactly three of something
Games that can be completed in or around 3 hours
Third installment of any game series
Game trilogies

please reply to this comment with a "+1". Please be fair and do not vote on any of the poll ones if you decide to go for this one.

Also "99 Problems but this ain't one - both sumthemes from above together" should be "99 Problems but this ain't one - both subthemes from above together", today is not a good day for me :(

I retired 2 games, having a test on (in?) the last week really kills my avaiable time

I will also not be able to complete Sakura or Millie in time but I'll complete them in this days anyway cause I feel the moral obligation to do it so (also they're not bad)

Difficult games

A game to play in February?
Speaking of which, there is no won for just one month.
┐(´Θ`)┌🎯 Oh, I hit the cold virus.😷
The new year's unsuccessful (fortune) was a delicate result of "Suekichi", so it was revised up later to "Daikichi", but it seems far from lucky.

Well, is it a game to play ...?
Unless I win today after this, will I reach out to the "pod"?

Well Beach Bounce does not state something about sex on front page but the comments speak about relationships. Night Furries is plain naked so it fits plus the others I'm 100% sure there is sex in them.

If Beach Bounce will have sex in it I will mark all 5 as sexual content :P

theres a literal threesome sex scene in that game. theres plenty of sexual content
the fact it doesnt have it as a tag is surprising since it sure didnt shy away from it. 1 of the characters routes is to literally have sex with her every time you meet

Dude theres a tag for sexual content! I feel like I'm the only one who looks at tags XD

What? Why is this not one of the top posts? That's a travesty, I say!

Anyway, I'm going to continue a game I started last month that also fits this month's theme: Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark. The main character is trying to save a young woman that she has been mentoring after the loss of her mentor, and that she is trying not to lose to dark magic.

Welcome to the event!
A couple of things:
1) Any playtime in February counts (even before you subbmited the games) so all of the playtime you have in Fortix 2 counts!
2) You can submit your games on the website too to make it easier for both you are me to track (playtime and achievements get automatically checked and updated about once a day) and you get access to giveaway links as soon as the game is verified as beaten (also happens about once a day) and you don't have to wait till the end of the month.
3) sadly non SG wins only count if you have played all your SG wins that fit the theme.

Hmm, I still have to finish 2 of 5 chapters in "One day in London", and it fits under "Games where choices matter" ("multiple endings" tag on steam)
Also, "Date Warp" is tempting because of LGBTQ+ tag

Evoland — 14+ achievements

Just so you know, I switched One day in London's category to 14+ achievements because it was a lot easier to see how the game fit under the theme that way, I hope you don't mind.

Nope, the logic sounds good to me. I just moved that one in particular since it is less effort to explain someone why it was approved if someone questions it. But if there is no "easier" option that one works no problem too ^^

I failed to find enough time to beat Bounty Train in January, so I'm going to resubmit it. My playtime is already 11.6 hours but I was constantly being distracted by the multitude of profitable trading opportunities, so I didn't really go that far in the main story. For those familiar with the game, I've just got in touch with the second sibling recently and have yet to complete her quests.

Looooved The Flame in the Flood. I don't usually listen to American Country music, but this really fit with the game :]. Got a little tiring near the end with with the inventory management, but very atmospheric and immersive. My favorite song has to be the Credits Song😁 I nearly teared up at the end 😭 Favorite lyric "Keep my head above the water"

For Vertical Drop Heroes my favorite soundtrack has to be this synth-wave-rock that plays during Level 5. And then this sudden shift to head-banging Level 7 🤣 This game is pretty relaxing. You can just select auto-attack on the menu option and run into enemies.

Keep at it you are getting there (I see your BLAEO profile ;) )

As for the note, are you trying to pull my leg ?!! :P

But seriously here you go
I would have been over it if the person who accused me of wrong doing on intention wasn't themselves doing wrong ..
They idle multiple games at the same time rigging the leaderboard of the event over and over ..even before I contacted Mouse about it I was positive she was well aware of it.. (Mouse and Sam seemed chill about the whole thing ..it is cool I'm not judging you guys it is a fantastic job you actually hosting this event.)
I guess because that person keep getting away with it they think everyone is like them

(you know I tried to sneak in non-SG wins before lol)

Wow you got over 800 wins back then and you still tried to sneak non wins.. EPIC
I had 11 wins all beaten/completed as they came and SCVI was the 12th.. I already burned my data cap for Nov and the next month the rush of advent calendar event missed with me a bit I needed to complete a game in less than 24hrs (I aim for 100% achievements generally when I start a game)

Apologies for the "heated" post but as I stated a few times before: for over the last decade of my life I've been gaming too much for my own health and real life .. too much to just take a shit regarding it from a shitter

Aegis Defenders - 14+ Achievements

Getting on late this month, but hoping to make it.

I played BAD END. I completed all 14 achievements in 6.3h.
(I think it is Choices matter, horror and main character lost an important person)

I will try to play Next Hero, but it is the first game that does not support my new XBOX One controller.
And I bought it for these kind of games darn it!

Fun fact... I did not participated in the GAs of the last event i took place, because I did not know that they were on the site XD
Now I know though. I hope I will not do it again :P

The original avatar is pink. But at some point I got the background changed to fit my Steam profile background (it is not actually black, it is a purpleish galaxy, just looks black on SG because the image is so small), but all my themed avatars (Christmas/new year/birthday/...) still have the original pink background on them so it randomly switches between pink and dark sometimes. I need to get my avatar redrawn completely at some point as this one is 7 years old, but haven't gotten around to sorting that yet.

Hey, I can participate this month! But I won't be able to beat the game during the month. I'm not even sure what the end-game condition is, other than being forced to retire because you're too old. But you can get married! In any event:

Hi, would you say that you have beaten Smugglers 5?

Edit: I just saw that your last edit was today, so I guess not, but correct me if wrong.

No, probably not. As I understand it, there is no specific way the game ends unless you retire, get so old that you are forced to retire, or die too many times (in which case you can load a save). I think that there are other conditions, which are class-specific, that could signal you've "beaten" the game. For my chosen class (Fleet Trader), I think the game can be considered beaten when you are a factory owner and/or have achieved the highest rank in the fleet (although I'm not sure what that is-- probably something like Admiral).

So far, I have unlocked the ability to own a factory but haven't actually bought one yet (I would literally just have to click a few buttons), because I've been focusing on the other goal-- to get the highest rank. I'm a Commodore right now, and I don't know if the next rank is Admiral or if there are other ranks (Read Admiral, etc.) between my rank and the final one. Also, I'll probably try to get married before I retire. Who wouldn't want to marry the Admiral of the Federation Fleet? ;-)

Anyway, I'm pretty close, but I haven't yet finished it. I'll probably wrap it up early this month. If I was looking to enter any giveaways, I might have opened a few factories and retired, since that's probably sufficient to "beating" the game. I was just happy to participate, in my own way. :-)

Edit: Yes, my last edit was last night (my time) to document the status at the end of the month.

Well I am happy that you are just happy with participating ^^ You can also participate with it for this month under the subtheme of "Games with points on SG between 3 and 14" so if you wrap it up this month it can count as beaten and a successful participating for March :)

Hi, if you want your submissing to count you need to put your playtime on Steam to public. If you need the instructions how to do that:

Go to your Privacy Settings and change your "Game details" from Friends Only to Public and make sure the checkbox bellow is unchecked. Here is an example of how it all should look.

Your theme? Since you provided multiple options I split it up under the possible ones. They count separately so people can pick which one they like the best but in the event of a tie with another theme (like we had 3/4 of last month) the other votes will add up to it aka no more tie hopefully.

OK, I have been pretty lax on rules till now except the games having to be SG win but considering some people have complete disregard for rules this is going to change. I am sorry to those who have participated for a long time that might get hit in the crossfire from this, but you can go thank that one person who has 10 unactivated wins and apparently that is fine with SG rules to still run around like this that pushed me over the line.
So what's gonna change:

  • No more people with unactivated, multiple wins or VAC bans are allowed to participate (people like that who already submitted their win this month get grandfathered in and are allowed to stay and participate this month)
  • no comment on this thread? If there is something wrong with the game you submitted it gets automatically deleted, I am tired of running after people
  • along those lines, no comment on this thread = not invited to join/re-join the group.

I will update the website, group page and this discussions main post once I get home from work. I just wanted to warn people in advance.

The worst are definitely the ones that I brought outside of bundles only for them to not really be played more then of course what was needed.

Thankfully it only happened once at the begining that we lost about 8 hours of submissions and it was 100% my fault but better safe than sorry. I would rather fix the mistake myself than inconvenience other people even more (I only need the name of the game in the comment, nothing else). Other than that the server I pay for has been really solid for the little money I pay for it and the website has been great ( thanks again insideone and ardiffaz <3 ).

It is actually super straight forward but for now I get more than enough help from Samwise :) I appreciate the willingness to help out tho :)

Firstly I'm sorry you feel this way. I know you're passionate and love to check everything one by one but maybe it is time for MouseBOT. Well, at least for dirty jobs.

Lastly, thank you for everything. It's been a hella good time even though I couldn't made it every event.

Luckily it is just a very small percent of bad people, the rest are great and give me the will to keep on going <3
Thankfully there is a lot of of scripts and the website has some tools to help with all of this together with my great slave Samwise :)

Thank YOU for joining in, even if not every event! ^^

I've beaten a game but have some achievements left, which should take a while (daily challenges). Should I mark the game as beaten now or wait until I've hopefully completed it this month?

Mark it as beaten, and change it to completed if you got everything during February?

1 month ago

Comment has been collapsed.

I guess it's up to you. As far as I'm know there is no problem to change game status during the event. So if you marked game as "Beaten", you can easily change it to "Completed" once you got all the achievements. But, in my opinion, there is still enough time until the end of the month so don't need to rush and marked game as "Beaten". In the worst case, if you not be able to get the remaining achievements before the end of the month, you can just mark the game as "Beaten" later, since you actually beat the game already.

What is more important in my opinion is that you have changed your Steam Custom URL and website can't track your progress properly anymore. So you better wait an answer from Mouse or samwise and ask if you need to take any action, or they themselves can change your ID on the site.

That's wrong. Custom url is not needed to track progress. Only steamId matters, and this thing cannot be changed.

A question about Californium
Has anyone played this one? Would it be possible to fit it within the current month theme? Based on the description (and tags) I have a hard time to figure this one out.
The main reason why I want to play this, it has an achievement - Launch the game the 12th of February. And this day will soon be upon us :)

I don't know anything about the game so I can't help there, so hopefully someone else can help. But I can suggest just starting the game on the 12th and leave the actual game playing for another month if you really want to play it for the event :)

So... that Californium game definitely fits under Games where the main character lost or is losing someone important, that is for sure. And I would say it is also a logical choice for a Sad or depressing games subcategory.

In the Steam forum I`ve found a pretty short and easy to understand explanation of the whole game (plot, ending and etc). Please note that there are huge SPOILERS, thus if anyone plan to play this game, do not read it. Here is the link:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/402060/discussions/0/1327844097106976602/

If it is ok, I am going to submit the game under a "sad" category.

Asking now to prepare for next month.

I have only one SG win that I haven't beaten, Stealth Inc 2. Mouse I don't know if you remember but I tried playing it while applying for PA but started having problems with the controls. If next month's theme is Life of Pi, that win will qualify, and the only game I will be able to participate with next month would be one that I have trouble playing. Can an exception be made here so I can play my normal backlog?

I'll maybe try to add the game to play anyway in case I find the will to try to make it work, but it's going to suck not being able to participate before I get it working.

You gave the game a try, so it is fine by me, you can play your normal backlog from now on (unless you get any new wins that fit the theme) :)
Also it is actually not required to beat every single win to be able to play non SG wins, just to have tried the game out which I now see that is actually not specifically mentioned anywhere (for some reason I had it in my mind that it was :/ ), I will add that to the FAQ next time I update it.

Thank you! Hey I knew that you can play non-wins if you don't have wins that fit the theme, thing is that every win I had fit the theme this month lol. Having only 9 wins that ended up the only one left to play. But it's nice to find something to improve on!

EDIT: Lmao I can't read. Okay that's good, didn't know that! Don't have to worry about this game at all then.

Seems like people really like to get new rules added to the group this month. My hand has been forced once again. So here you go:
While idling games is not against the rules, any idle time MUST be added to the already existing playtime by the participant. Not doing so and not providing any explanation why the playtime is abnormally high (I am not gonna punish you if you are simply bad/slow at the game or spent a lot of time troubleshooting the game for example) will see in the game being removed.

What is considered as abnormally high?
This is extremely game dependent, so it is extremely hard to define but as long as you are not at like 2x the playtimes expected from sites like HLTB and you know you did not idle the game, you should have nothing to worry about (and if you still worry, leave a note on the submission or message me directly, I am always available).

And please note that as someone who has played over 1000 games and has been working on setting playtimes for Playing Appreciated group for over 2 years, I know a thing or 2 about playtimes for a lot of games.

I'm a horrible person who sometimes "plays" games while watching cooking videos on youtube because I forgot that the game is running in the background :D Being distracted for literal hours when a game is slower/boring is an eternal problem for me... my minimum gameplay time generally is HLTB casual +25% :D And that is for the good games!

Happens to everyone sometimes :D I forgot my games open many times while I do other stuff to (I left a game open 3x while doing other stuff yesterday alone woooops). If you leave it for a longer amount of time just add that time to the "playtime before the start of the month" and it is all good.

Just to clarify, my game isn't removed and I'm pretty sure I set the time correctly so I guess it wasn't me, but in any case, Sakura Dungeon takes a very loooong time to both idle and complete (huge amount of text), I have 5 hours of play and apparently I'm not even close to reach the half of the game, I planning to play all this weekend to see if I can beat at least 2 more games before March

Sounds good to me even if I'm one of the bad gamers who often wonders about the HLTB times 😂

But to be fair the rule should also include abnormally low times (even if this didn't get you higher in the ranking or whatever is the intention for people who want to add extra time to games 🙄)

Just a short question for something else:
How do you handle games which are not set to "beaten/completed" at the end of the month? Do you check if they are possibly beaten or do you just ignore them?

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Well I can't speak for mouse, but I usually ignore them. As far as I know mouse usually makes one pass through the forum to see if anyone makred their games here as beaten. Also mouse usually lets her script run once every day, so even if you do not mark it we might catch it by the stats changing.

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Why I ask is because I wonder if I should remove the game I will not finish to save you some time at the end of the month. Maybe another status like "won't finish" or something would be good. If Mouse really checked all the 69 unfinished games at the end of last month, that's quite a lot work.

The abnormally low times get questioned under if the person is cheating. I haven't had a case yet that I remember however.

Samwise is actually wrong here. I do check through all of them quickly (aka if it is damn obvious that the game is beaten) but I don't go into details if there is no obvious achievements for beating the game. And I only check the forum if there is someone who commented here that has not submitted any games to the site, not for beaten games.
You don't need to remove them, but you can leave a note saying that you won't finish it or something like that if you want.

I wonder if given this it would be worthwhile to have Beaten, Beaten+Extra, and Completed options. That way to some degree abnormally high play time could be explained by attempting to get extra achievements even if there was a failure to complete the game / so we can point out that we did this to you to reduce your cognitive load in analyzing the achievements done.

I don't think there is a need for that. If the playtime is over the story playtime and under the completionist one it can just be assumed people went to do some extra things.

I tend to make an attempt to have at least one game double dip this and one of those for maximum coverage. As an example, this month The Gardens Between was one of my PoP picks and it satisfied the category for this as well. Next month, The Sexy Brutale which was also a PoP pick will satisfy next month via either the Puzzle tag or the Mystery tag. I also played Tacoma which satisfied both this and the BLAEO monthly theme.
