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.

Definitely playing The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories because I have been putting it off for a month and I won't last any longer. Not sure what else but this one is my first.

Thanks for the events month after month :)

Finally done with The Missing. I have mixed feelings about it. Maybe I was expecting too much. It's an important story told through bits and pieces of texts, chats and dialogs that feel like they were written by a 12 year old. The gameplay itself is entertaining enough but seems rather pointless. After I spent almost 20 mn trying to line up a series of tricky jumps (as a head) to collect 10 donuts in order to get a few more text messages, I gave up on the collection aspect of the game and just played to finish the story.

I went back to the February thread where it was suggested and this is what Moony said about it:

just someone (= a person) e. g. another player or an enemy but not spikes, lasers, stones or animals

No reference on whether or not it's permanent; I didn't think it meant perma-death, but I guess we'll have to wait for Moony or Sam to specify.

Thanks for the info! Come to think about it again, you are right - it shouldn't be a perma death, but let's wait for a confirmation just to make sure.

Narita boy - has 1980s tag and the store page says "flashback to the 80s"

Sorry to bother you, but doesn't the 19th century mean the 1800s?

Whoops, i might have misread it from the 19th, hahah. I'll remove it from the list for now since it doesn't seem to fit to other categories, unless if the digital kingdom works for royalty and the games where you can get killed doesnt mean permadeath. I need to play the game to make sure of the latter one tho.

I don't know how useful it is anymore now that Steam itself lets you sort your library by tag, but there's also a website that lets you do it: https://www.lorenzostanco.com/lab/steam/

It does allow sorting that Steam doesn't though, like sorting games by what tags you don't want. Like, you want to see all of your Mouse Only games but you don't want any of them to be HOGs, etc...

Flashback — classic tag
Ghost 1.0 — female protagonist tag
Detective Di: The Silk Rose Murders — historical tag
Dry Drowning — replay value tag

... and the perfect game for the theme: MIAZMA or the Devil's Stone — Games with relation to Hungary.
From steam page: "Miazma was developed with the support of the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Atomki) in the framework of scientific project Understandable-available physics. <...>. Additional supporters: KIA Motors Hungary."
+ Game designer, Pierrot, is Hungarian
+ protagonist Jonathan Hunt has Hungarian roots (also on steam page: "Jonathan Hunt, a journalist from New York, arrives in the city of Eger in Hungary for a break. He has local ancestry and speaks the language"). The passage about Eger is about a previous game, but the protagonist is still the same, even if the main action isn't in Hungary anymore.

Hi and 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.

Some general things:
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.
If you have idle time, put it to the time before the month, since we try to get clean times for the leaderboard ;)
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 :D

Games where someone can kill you means just exactly that. If there is someone (like a person) that can kill you it counts. Though it needs to be a person, not spikes or something like that.

Bump! Added 3 more games.

Still Life 2: Played the first one but lost my save file :/ It's on my backlog for too long so I play it before going back to first game and Post Mortem.
Sakura Spirit: Last Sakura game I have and won, and the last one I play. Story and characters in other two I played were pretty much crap, I doubt this one is a change. Already played 2 hours.
HunieCam Studio: Also on my backlog for too long.

My latest win The Wild Eight, only category I could think of that fit it is "Tag female protagonist" .. the games doesn't have that tag on its store page but some of the 8 characters that you choose one of them to play with are females
I have played too short of a time and so far I only seen predator animals or traps that can kill you no persons yet so far

If this game won't fit the event, I can choose any other game from my backlog that would fit it easily np

Tag categories are for tags only. I took a look at the game but unfortunately I could not find a fitting one, Maybe we could see surving as a hapy ending. Other than that maybe keep it for the next month and play some backlog games shrug.

With games without clear ending we usually go with average HLTB time (non available) or 25% of achivements for it to count as beaten. Dreadnauts has 30 achivements so 25% are 7.5, so 8 achivements should be enough to beat the game. You can of course play it further if you like :)

You have still two unplayed wins, one of them fits the theme Styx: Master of Shadows which has the Fantasy tag.

Once this is played you can take part with normal backlog games that fit the theme (Alien: Colonial Marines would fit under games where someone can kill you). Sadly we can't make an exception from the rules just for you because if we start with one person everyone wants to have an exception and soon we would not adhere to any rules.

Well I took a look through your unplayed wins and from what I can see you have the following that fit the theme:

Classic:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Where someone can kill you:
Natural Selection 2
STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order (not sure about the unplayed part here, but you don't have any achivements)

Based on historical events:
Tannenberg (WW1)

Fantasy:
Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition
Warstone TD

So there are a few to choose from :)

Do multiplayer games like Tannenberg count? They don't have a story or a single player campaign to complete.

Reply to this comment with your ideas for June theme. (500 characters or less please)

1 week ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I know that it's a bit late for May ideas (noticed only just now that themes are submitted 2 months in advance since I never looked at it, sorry), but I think Mothers theme could still be included – it's Mother's day in May and they are some of the most (if not the) important people in our lives. So games with mother as a character or featuring in the story would be applicable in that case.

Following that,

  • Father's day is in June. Games with fathers as characters or featuring in the story.

Other ideas:

  • Archduke Francis Ferdinand was assassinated, which ultimately led to World War I. Treaty of Versailles was signed in June as well. So something to do with WWI, events that escalate to bigger conflicts.
  • Barbarossa and Overlord started in June. Should be plenty of games which include those events.
  • Magna Carta. Something to do with law, fair trial, judicial system.
  • Valentina Tereshkova became first woman in space. Games with female protagonists in space.

I can't include any themes after thread creation, since the poll can't be edited so sorry. Would have to recreate the whole thread for that to happen.

For June theme, you would need a name and make it a comprehensive list with ideas and how they are applicable to games. Maybe throw some fitting tags in there.

And yeah ideas are always for 2 months in advance so that we can vote on the next months theme on time ;)

Every game is Hungary-related when I play it!

Jokes aside, here is a Hungarian site that tried to collect all the hungarian-developed games starting from the 80s:https://hungame.blog/az-osszes-magyar-fejlesztesu-jatek-listaja/c . Sadly the last update to this comprehensive list is from 2018 amd it's far from complete, but Neocore and Sunward Games has some more known games.
I really miss the recent Chicken Police from the list, or the 2016 Myst-like: Quern - Undying Thoughts...
For myself I'll look around if there are applicable games

Edit: also a curator specialised for Hungarian games but as always, you should cross-check their lists, and unlikely to be complete https://store.steampowered.com/curator/8160004/

I'm planning to play first 2 seasons of Sam & Max this month. I just realized the games are listed separately for each episode (101, 102... etc) in my library. Should I add them to the website the same way (11 games total) or just as packages (2 seasons)?

I think it doesn't care, as long as the website recognises them in one or another way (for example, the blaeo website recognises them just as 2 packages, not as 11 different games). But this is just my 2 cents :)


Btw, the logic of the gameplay is sometimes pretty senseless, like in many p&c games, but the humour of the dialogues is just amazing :D

Basically what SpiderDen said, though of course there are some more rules to follow.
First up the game should be a win (normal backlog games are only allowed if you have played all fitting wins, since this event is about giving those wins some love ;)).
Then of course the game must have been played in the corresponding month, e.g. you can't enter games that have only been played in prior months.
We use the following event page too 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.
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.

First up the game should be a win (normal backlog games are only allowed if you have played all fitting wins, since this event is about giving those wins some love ;)).

That's the main reason I want to join :D I've been trying to beat all the games I've won here for some time now (I'm half way there already :) ) So I figured it'd be more fun to do it together :)

Okay, I've added two games. For the one I finished (beaten and completed are interchangeable?) I've added the idle time I had before April. The rest I left empty as it will update automatically, right?

So we can submit games even if we already have some achievements? I remember reading a similar thread (maybe this one, maybe not) a couple of months ago, and any existing achievements weren't allowed. But i didn't have any time to participate back then.

Yes, the total played time and achievements should update once the site updates, "Beaten" is for completing the game's storyline/campaign/etc "Completed" is for unlocking all the achievements, if the game has no achievements pick the one you like best.

Also it's perfectly fine to add a game for which you have unlocked even all the achievements as long as it meets the rules, people do it all the time, for example if only after completing the game you found out it has a happy ending (or otherwise fits the month's theme) it's fine to add it (just don't forget to add the time/achievements to the "stats before the event" if applicable)

Great to have you then. The difference between beaten and completed is rather simple. Beaten means you have finished the main story (usually with an ending achievement in most games), therefore you have beaten the game.
Completed means you go for all the achievements in a game.
For games without achievements a game is beaten when you reach the end credits (take a screenshot then) and is completed if you reached every ending or gotten all in game achievements (if it has any). Though here we can't really check, unless we want to buy and play all games, so we have to trust in the participants to be honest here 😉

The playtime/achievements will update once I trigger it (usually sometime around midnight CET).

And yes you can submit previously started games. We usually say as long as it is not 95% finished we are totally okay with that. In case you are not sure if it is okay, just ask.
