Wow, Junes event beat all possible expectations I had. The website also turned out great with a few minor issues here and there that got quickly fixed :) Amazing work to every single one of you who participated, you did amazing!

  • 2817 achievements have been achieved
  • 1392.5 hours have been played
  • 171 games have been beaten
  • 67 people have participated.

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 June for the next couple of days (till the June thread is closed).


The theme for this month is

Lion's heart

(Thank you to Kyrrelin for the suggestion!)

Games that qualify for it are:
Games about any kind of animal - wild, domestic, marine, space...
Games where you take care of animals (zoo, farm...)
Games where you hunt animals
Games with animal names
Games where you play as animal
Games where you have animal as a companion
Games with surgery theme
Games about love / hate / romance
Card games
Visual novel games

Yes, imaginary animals do count.

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. Still don't have any games that qualifies? WTF, let me know and I will give you one.


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

https://pagywosg.xyz/events/2

While the test run last month was successful 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.

Well... I still didn't finished Scott in Space. At least, I can try again, but I've to find some other titles, because this title don't even have achievements, and F12 don't work properly.
( By now, I see... Pepe Porcupine, Cat Goes Platform and Rescue Love Revenge. I'll check all the achievements details and other things tomorrow. )

Yup, I know. ^^' Well, I've already the two easiest achievements on it, anyway, but I don't really intend to finish it, maybe except for the "9999 death" one, if I can.

So :) Ok, I've found other far better games to play, and I'll edit a new list, below.

Don't know how much time I have this month, but I added "Kero Blaster" and "Snake Pass" to the list. (I think I'm already halfway through with Snake Pass)
Hopefully I can at least finish one of them :)

EDIT: Finished both of them :)
Added Niche to the list. I don't know if it even has an end. Guess I will see :)

How is snake pass? Do you like it?

Comment has been collapsed.

For me personally I would say it's "okay". It's a polished game, very chill and cute, the music is nice and I enjoyed fiddeling with the weird controls :3 I played with a controller and haven't tried keyboard/mouse so far
Unfortunately I'm not that much into collecting stuff (even though I'm always doing it in assassins creed :D) and that's basically all what this game is about: Collecting crystals, coins, spirits, whatever, while struggeling with the strange snake controls :3
And the only reward you get for collecting 100% of the stuff in the game is a new skin ...so I don't really feel the urge to do it :(

Would I still recommend to play it? Yes, even if it's just to experience the controls. You don't get to play very often as a snake in games :3
And each time you climb some kind of wooden construct, it turns into it's own little puzzle where you have to think: "can I let go of this button without falling? Or should I wrap my tail around it one more time to be sure?".
And if you enjoy collecting stuff and 100%ing games just for the sake of it, I'm pretty sure you would have a good time with it :)

I hope this helps :)

**sneaks in to reserve a spot to post my games

June was a good month, but I'll probably won't be getting much done this July which'll fit the theme as I've just won Dishonored 2 here and still need to play the first Dishonored game before I get to that one
I do like the theme though

edit> I do actually have to add DIshonored 2 through the website right? because there is no subcategory for SG win backlog

Dishonored is soooo good! You should totally play it. :)

And then the DLC, and then Dishonored 2. :)

Comment has been collapsed.

A long time ago I bought Dishonored from GMG, but then decided I'd like to have all the DLC as well so I started buying those whenever they got a good enough discount (which was rare). Finally I got tired of waiting so I just doubled down and bought the Definitive Edition heyooo
Then I heard about D2 coming and decided I'd wait with playing D1 until I could get that somewhere with a nice discount as well so I could play them back to back, and now 3 years later I finally have the opportunity to do it thanks to a generous Steamgifts user

So yeah, first thing I'm doing after I beat Postal II is fire up D1 and 2 ^^

Eh I would put Dishonored 2 under "Games about love / hate / romance" - brutally murdering people is close enough to hate right? And while I never played it (I disliked what I played of the first one :( but I seem to be the minority ) I can only assume there is some love/hate going on somewhere in the story line.

With that mindset it could fit under "Games with surgery theme" as well as I'm going to be performing a lot of phlebotomies :D

Stealth is my top favorite genre so I'm definitely going to enjoy these games.
You really sure I should add them under those categories? I feel it's a little too far fetched but I'm not the one making up the rules here ^^

I will ask Kyrrelin what she thinks since she came up with the theme and she knows how far fetched she imagined the subcategories and if she is fine with it, I am fine with it :)

As I am BIG fan of Dishonored I say yes, you can! ;)
Also, you can possess rats and fishes in the game, so it counts as playing as an animal tag too. :)

Edit: Oh, we were talking about the second game. XD Same rules, you can possess animals. And we can't forget whales!!!!

Hope you will enjoy it! I love Dishonored so much, 170hours and still counting! :D
Edit: Second game is good too, but first one is master piece. ;) I have yet to play the third one.

Well technically we're talking about both as I was waiting for a good sale on D2 so I could play 1 and 2 back to back but then I won it in a GA here (yay!)
Honestly had no idea you could possess animals, tried to avoid as much spoilers as I could all these years so the game is still fresh, i'm very good at that. But in that case I'll add them both under that category :D

Thank you, I'm pretty sure that I'm going to enjoy these game, absolutely love stealth games

No way I'll ever get to all of them, but here's the to-do list. Let's see how much of them I can actually shave off...

  • Winter Novel (VN) - DONE
  • Bionic Heart (VN)
  • The Agency: Chapter 2 (VN)
  • Timbertales (Games where you play as animal - I think?)
  • Foxtail (Games where you play as animal)
  • Home Sheep Home 2 (Games where you take care of animals (zoo, farm...))
  • Animal Herding (Games where you take care of animals (zoo, farm...)) - BROKEN SHIT-NO WAY JOSE

Best of luck!

Timbertales - if you don't play as an animal it sure looks like they are at least some kind of your "companions" so I am pretty sure you are good to go with this one.

Yeah, you play as animals so I got that right, yay! But during the second 'real' story mission it tried connecting to Steam servers (dunno why), failed and after 2 retries it continued but no longer allowed me to move my units, so I have to restart it all over again. And I couldn't properly close the game either, had to do it the "dirty" way.
Not exactly good first impressions, but I'll give that mission a second try later after I'm over the frustration of having to re-do very slow TBS stuff due to such a silly issue.

EDIT: Animal Herding is broken, you cannot pass mission 4. So deleting that one since completion is impossible (even if the game was super-boring so no loss). Seems my entries so far are super-buggy :/

I guess I should join this challenge more often since the last 3 days Steamgifts has been.

Well, completed a second just in the nick of time. Does the site actually informs you, or should we still report here? Or it does but you still like a reply?
I noticed the table above already lists 2 completed games, while I only updated it a few minutes ago. Made me curious.

Got less done this month than expected due to spending most of it on a recent wishlisted win... First World Issues, eh?

Comment has been collapsed.

I will check for the next 2 days if anyone changed the status/added anything myself so no need to inform me. If you need anything changed starting on August the 2nd you will have to inform me as I will have to do that manually as the site prevents people from editing anything once the event is over (it ends on August 1st to account for different time zones).

I checked all games marked as "unfinished" earlier(30 minutes ago) in case anyone else forgot to mark anything and approved a couple of those (yours being one of them). I did just notice that the site was reporting the wrong playtime/achievements as you got them after the last update was ran so I ran it again. It is now showing it correctly on the site. I however I will only update the leadarboard tomorrow to prevent me from having to update it 100x as little changes like this come in.

If you have any more questions please ask away!

The important is that you enjoyed your time with the game ^^

Congrats on beating a win for July is a "play a game you won on Steamgifts" month, in the chaos it was last month I don't remember if I told you that you can join the group or not, sorry, so I will do it now just in case:

Yes, you did, didn't send a request yet though. Won a wishlisted game yesterday which semi-fits (Neptunia is kinda VN), but a win 1 day ago is hardly backlog.

Hello, first timer joining the event. Seems like fun! I only have one SG win that seems relevant, but it's one I've meant to go back and finish for a while, so...

SG win:

  • Shadow Bug: Play as an animal (ninja bug). I've almost completed it so it kind of feels like cheating but the last boss is REALLY hard and I need the motivation. :P

Backlog:

  • Cultist Simulator: Card game in which you can play as become an animal. Also has romance options. I'll try for a victory that combines the two before I call it "beaten" (even though I've completed several other paths already).
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider: In which Lara Croft hunts animals for experience. Because killing like a thousand bad guys isn't enough.
  • Blacksea Odyssey: Hunting eldritch space whales. 'Nuff said.
  • Love is Dead: A couple is so in love that their minds survive becoming zombies. Naturally, they set out to find their lost pets, Catface and Dogface. Ridiculously adorable.
  • Snakeybus: Animal in the name. Plays like the classic Snake... but you're a bus.

If I come up with others that fit the theme, should I edit them into this post or start a new reply? (He says, having edited two in already.) (And another two I got from the Steam Sale.)

Welcome! ^^

I wish you the best of luck with the boss!

Damn, Cultist Simulator is a combo of themes o.o You can just edit them in ^^ I would just like to have them listed somewhere in case something fails on the site so I can add any possibly missing new ones back myself :)

Status report:

SG win:

  • Shadow Bug: Beaten! Turns out I wasn't even close to the last boss. SO MANY LASERS WHY

Backlog (not SG wins):

  • Blacksea Odyssey: Verified, never got the chance to play. It's a hard roguelike though, probably wouldn't have beaten it anyway.
  • Cultist Simulator: Beaten! I've beaten it before, so this time I combined as many themes as I could into a single ascension type, one I hadn't done before. So: Change ascension (in which one sheds one's skin to become a mythical beast) alongside my undead lover. Cult and beloved were of Heart aspect, just for icing on the cake.
  • Love is Dead: Beaten! May go back for completion, but there's one achievement that won't fire.
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider: Verified, played a lot, but forgot how long it is. Still, got through the Baba Yaga storyline which might be the most fun I've ever had in a Tomb Raider game, so I'm happy with it.
  • Snakeybus: Beaten? Unlocked everything, placed at the bottom of the weekly highscore list. If I get a top highscore and/or the final achievement I'll call it completed, but I feel this is good enough for a "win".

Well, since JYDGE is described as a "roguehate top-down shooter", it seems like it would fit the "games about hate" theme. ;)

Or, on a much darker note, one could argue that the game's cybernetic JYDGEs view their task of violently eradicating crime as them hunting animals for the "games where you hunt animals" theme.

Damn, that is dark. But sure, you can add that under "games about hate" and you better play it! :P

Just beat Jydge, and updated the site. Surprisingly, there's an achievement for beating the 3rd act, but not one for beating the 4th and final act. Weird. Regardless, I'll likely go back to play some more, and see if I can do a second playthrough for the "good" ending.

The game was pretty fun. Starting out, it wasn't at all what I thought it was going to be like. But the more I played, the more the game opened up, and the more fun it became. I'm not necessarily happy with the pacing and default level gating mechanics (there is an optional way around that), but I did really enjoy the challenges and how they forced me out of my preferred playstyle and into alternative styles - like having to rush through levels instead of being sneaky and stealthy.

Yeah, it's one of those rare games that gets better the more you play. When I first started playing, I was really disappointed. I seriously wondered if I had made a mistake in winning it, as it was not at all what I thought it was going to be like. The beginning was rather dull and boring. But then you get some fun abilities, then more fun abilities, then even more fun abilities, and even as the challenge escalates you find you have the tools to overcome them. I meant to play for just a bit last night, but the "one more level / one more challenge" hook sank in, and I ended up playing for 2 hours until I beat it.

Thanks again. :)

Zeno Clash - no idea if that one counts, I guess play and see under which subcategory fits best (my guess probably either Games where you hunt animals or Games where you have animal as a companion)
Complete? Get all the achievements in it. Simiply beat? Dunno play for a couple of hours till you get tried of it and get some achievements. That should be enough :)

Here are my games to play for July ( Still don't know if I may removes some of the mosts annoying of them. :/ Here, again, there is a lack of quality games. ) :

Game Achievements Hours of Playtime Subcategory Status Note :
Dinosaur Forest 1317/1317 6 hours Animal hunting Completed Ridiculously high amount of achievements, even more ridiculously easy to 100% complete... ^^'
Sacra Terra: Kiss of Death Collectors Edition 6/8 11 Hours Romance Finished / Uncompleted I think I'l give up trying to get the two remainings achievements, after two unsuccessful run... Now, I'm a bit fed up with this game. ^^'
Zombillie 5/16 13 Hours (Total) Animal protagonist Unfinished
Cat Goes Platform 2/7 3 Hours Animal protagonist Unfinished ( Insane ! )
Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom 32/32 26 hours (Total) Animal protagonists / Heart container collector Finished Guest - Didn't count ( Actually not from SG )

At least I'm sure to keep on Dinosaur Forest and Sacra Terra, for this month, the other titles may be changed or dismissed.
( ...And I'm still hesitating to replace Pepe Porcupine by Zombillie ? :o )

Update : I removed "Rescue Love Revenge", because there was only 2 achievements for finishing both chapters, and it wasn't very fun to play further. I removed "Scott in Space", too ( No achievements, plus I didn't finished it, too.)

Instead, I wanted to add a "Guest" from my backlog : it was either "Inked", or "Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom".
I finished and completed the second one first, so, here it is.

^^' At least, Zombillie have achievements... Ok, and there will be enough with Scott the Guinea Pig to play the "Tedious Useless Guest" role, so I swap Pepe for Zombillie.

And to bad, "Rescue, Love, Revenge" won't be this easy or interesting as it looks, because the couple of achievements are only related to finish each chapters. :/

A shame again, as I find my present games selection actually rather bland, compared to pasts months...
By now I've discovered "Inked", with the present steam-sales, and it'll fit this month theme nearly perfectly, if I had to choose something out from this SG backlog. ( This, or "The Lion's Song". )

What is the current policy on the playtime limits in previously started games? I have about 22 hours in Niche from the June challenge, but I'm pretty far from beating it. HLTB and astats have no useful info and based on what I could gather from discussions about the game, the time of the first campaign playthrough is heavily based on the playstyle. The spread is like from 10 to 70 hours I think. My playstyle is very very slow thorough. :)
And the game does fit this month's theme perfectly.

EDIT: So I'll play

  • Niche - a genetics survival game
  • Ultimate Chicken Horse

Well usually mouse is pretty generous with that., Have you beaten the game? If the anwser is no, then it is okay to play it. If it's your only entry for this month there should be at least a quarter of the game still left to finish ( or something like that, if I remember correctly.

And you've only got 7/31 achievements. So I think you are save and can play the game.

Even though I played a few titles recently that fit the bill, I have more left than I thought. I'd really like to try Impossible Creatures, but not sure I'll have the time for that one. More doable: Do Not Feed the Monkeys, Super Rude Bear, ABZU, Dusty Revenge, Nyan Cat, Jumpjet Rex. Not sure if Toby: The Secret Mine qualifies since I'm not sure if he's and animal or not, or if Day of the Tentacle will work as it's only a part of an animal :)

Edit: Added Squidlt and Toby: The Secret Mine to my goals, but completion for Impossible Creatures is not looking good for this month. Just too much involved, including being more rusty than I thought at RTS games and not really inclined to re learn all those keyboard shortcuts. I will still try for the end of July, but I'm not optimistic.

Toby: The Secret Mine

Doesn't look human to me (actually technically humans are animals too.... hmmmmmmmmmm yea not counting humans in, too easy), so I would say it fits

All you need to do is mark it as "completed" on the site and I will get to it and approve it (I check them once a day, so it takes 24 hours max) :) I would just do it by myself right now, but I would have to run the playtime update script so it will get all the achievements and that takes a while and I want to go to sleep right now. If you don't mind I will approve it tomorrow when I get home from work (the giveaway run for a while longer anyways).

And so I don't forget: congrats on completing it! You can request to join the steam group if you wish to do so :)

Minit (kill animals)
Mystery of Unicorn Castle - The Beastmaster - (animal in title)
Divide by Sheep (Play as animals and has animal in title)

Okay, cool, thanks :) One more question... Since the first one is a card game, I'm not quite sure when to mark it as "beaten". Completed means I got all the achievements, right? (Those card games tend to be quite big - in Slay The Spire I got just 43% in 44 hours :D) So in order to beat it... do I just play until I feel like I got most out of it?

So in order to beat it... do I just play until I feel like I got most out of it?

I really need to add this to my FAQ, I literally just got asked the same question by someone else too.

If you don't mind I will just copy paste what I told someone yesterday:

Play till you feel like you are done with it and happy with your progress. Another way it can be done is playing it about the time people said on average is to beat "the main story" on HowLongToBeat.

In your case https://howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=47643 -> Main Story 24 Hours
But as the first sentence says, if you feel like you already got everything you wanted out of the game and you are happy with it and feel like the HLTB time is too high you can always mark it as beaten earlier, I don't mind :)

Completed is 100% achievements yes. I don't expect anyone to do that, but if someone does there is an option for them to mark it as that :)

At first I thought that I don't have any single one game about animals, only visual novels. Only today I realized that girls in NEKOPARA have cat ears 😁
So, I'll go with
NEKOPARA Extra — game about any kind of animal;
XBlaze Code: Embryo — visual novel

fockyeah, I've completed my huge VN (Xblaze) finally! 21 hours, what a relief..
Anyway, I added 3 more new games: Super Panda Adventures, BAD END (vn) & These night in Cairo (vn). Not sure I'd have enough time for all though plus I kinda tired of VNs at the moment..
And a question: can I add the game I won in PA group?

Game Achievements Playtime Theme Status
Love is Dead 32/36 10.4 hrs Game about animals / Animal hunting Beaten

The game's premise is about reuniting with your pets (mentioned nearly every level) after you've been zombified, meanwhile interacting with various other pancake-animals on the way.

Also just noticed Pete joined this month! Had to do a double triple take, that's awesome. :D

September 13th is the 256th day of the year, that's why it's the Day of the Programmer, so my suggestion is a theme about programming :)

Hello World!

  • Programming
  • Hacking
  • Cyberpunk
  • Games about artificial intelligence
  • Games about robots or androids
  • Typing games
  • Moddable games (Steam tag)
  • Puzzles
  • Wins with points value being a power of two (1P, 2P, 4P, 8P, 16P, 32P)

The 22nd of September is the birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins and it's celebrated as the "Hobbit day".

My suggestion is:

"The Fellowship Of The Ring"

  • Games based on novels/movies
  • Story rich
  • Fantasy
  • Adventure
  • Medieval
  • RPGs
  • Hack & Slash
  • Mining
  • Games containing mythical creatures (e. g. Elves, Dwarves, Wizards, Dragons)
  • Games about friendship/fellowship
  • Games where you won the Soundtrack

Back to School

(because learning can be fun too) (disclaimer: you may or may not actually learn anything from these games)

  • Games which take place in a school or library
  • Games where the protagonist is a student or teacher
  • Games with books as a prominent theme
  • Tags: Education, Text-Based, Interactive Fiction, Choose Your Own Adventure, Visual Novel, Based on a Novel, Word Game, Historical, Science, Spelling, Typing

"Choose Your Own Adventure" might seem a bit out-of-place, but the genre is named after a series of books, so it counts. :P

Also, if you're wondering about "Typing"...I had to take a typing class in middle school (around 2006-ish, so all of us already knew how to type lol). I don't know if they still make kids do that. I hope not.

I've never seen that myself but I've seen people mentioning it yeah, like how, as a dev, do you forget to upload your whole game lol
At this point I'd rather have no Linux support at all instead of the half assed attempts some dev studios deliver sometimes
When I first tried to play Hyper Light Drifter I spent an hour or two trying to debug why it wasn't working and attempting to solve it while I could've spent those 2 hours actually playing by just enabling Proton from the getgo

I must have be super unluckly then because I found 2 of them last month alone and I might have called a dev incompetent over it out of annoyance. No regrets.

I admire your persistence at actually trying to fix it. Shame that the solution ended up just not playing the Linux version. the Games like this simply get thrown in my shame pile (to be fair most of them are games that just don't work with Proton) to rot till I can be bothered to start up Windows (which hasn't happened since March sooooooo probably not happening any time soon either)

No regrets needed imo, I think it's completely fair to call someone incompetent when they forget to upload their entire game

I admire your persistence

I think it had to do with the fact that I just couldn't accept that a game I've been looking forward to for years and actually bought for full price through Humble had serious issues which made it impossible for me to play.
There's no way I could get myself to put HLD under the "NOPE" category (which functions as my shame and trash pile) in my steam library haha

I exclusively run Debian since 2 years now so whatever game doesn't run on Linux or via Proton might as well be dead to me hmm
Do still have W7 on my old PC so if there's something I'd REALLY REALLY want to play I could always try to see if that thing still works lol, hasn't been plugged in for more than 5-6 years though

Fair enough, I am glad it actually worked fine with Proton then at least. It would have been even more awful if it wouldn't.

I been using Mint (I am ready to get judged for that :D I would kinda like to try Manjaro out but I haven't got around doing that yet) on my laptop since 2015ish and now on my desktop as well since March. I was gonna keep using Win7 on my desktop but long story short there are no Win7 USB drivers for my new motherboard and I am sure as hell not installing Win10 on it. I was and still am perfectly happy with switching to full time Linux anyways.

I do also still have my old PC that can run Win 7 but I have no reason to boot into it at all.

No judging from me because Mint is totally fine. Every distro that works for you is a good Linux. except maybe Hannah Montana Linux or TempleOS (though only Linux in spirit), if you use those as your daily driver you might have some issues
I'm sure that you already know but you can just run Manjaro off an old usb you have laying around, easy to testdrive other distros

not installing Win10 on it

What about Red Star OS? :D But I guess you might have very different issues if you are using that one.
Yep, I knew, but making a bootable USB and then going into BIOS to change the boot order takes too much effort for my liking I never claimed that I am not lazy. Plus if I end up liking it then I have to put even more effort into backing everything up and reinstalling everything :/ Someday... :D

Worst part is that I am stuck with Win10 at work everyday >.> Don't think there has been a single day that something made by Microsoft didn't manage to crash or fuck up. But I guess since we use Skype for business that is not really hard to achieve :D

If I could get access to the NK intranet in some weird magic way by firing up RedStar I would actually try it out on my old laptop but without that access there's no point

backing everything up

If you have your /home on a diff partition could you not just wipe the others and be fine? Though obviously I would NEVER recommend trying that without creating a full backup lol, way too risky
You'd still have to reinstall your software but atleast the user configs will be fine

AFAIK it is only available in Koran so that might be a little bit of a problem unless you speak it.... but I guess terminal commands are always pretty much the same no matter the language.... hmmmm

I don't. Not that I didn't try it. I did but it didn't actually want to let me do that when I was installing it. I don't remember what the issue was anymore.

Normal Skype works decently well (I am actually in a video call right at this moment), it is just missing some features over Win10 version (but the Win7 version of it doesn't have them either). Skype for Business I have no idea, never looked into it.

I doubt there is easy access to a terminal emulator though, that would give the user too much freedom to access system internals. I'd love to have a look around though. Version 1.0 is available for download and I've been tempted before haha

Please tell me something that allows you to video call for both Linux and Windows and I will happily try it out. Trust me, I tried just about anything I could and everything worked worse than Skype (which is honestly an achievent). I for sure wouldn't be using Skype if I had a choice.

Well, after getting all 15 achievements, I can state that not that lot of fucking despite what people may think or the store page indicates. More like Eyes Wide Shut meeting Lovecraft in a walking simulator and little gameplay beyond some standard fare hide and seek.
It was okay. Not particularly engaging, but worth what I paid. Plus the mansion aesthetics, even beyond the erotic art, is just great, the level designers put a lot of work into the game. Since it is a walking simulator, at least it had to look pretty. ^_^

Greetings from another summer month. :)
I want to ask a general question since sooner or later i'll be in the position, maybe even in this month who knows. One of them is "What do you think about games that already beaten but going for another walkthroughs?". And the other is "What about games that cannot be beaten easily since they don't have an end?".

Examples: A visual novel game with 15 endings but you can only get 1 achievement when you finish the game. I wanted go for other endings for a long time and this seems a perfect time for it but dang, it's already beaten. :)
For future reference: A truck simulator game with literally no end. Or any games fit this situation. Even you can complete the achievements but you cannot beat the game. :)

I wonder what do you think about these? (I don't know if these are already asked in the past though.)

Have a great July.

What do you think about games that already beaten but going for another walkthroughs?

Hm that is a bit hard one. If there is more achievements/endings to be gained I would say sure, go for it. Also I might be OK with it if there are no other SG wins that fit the theme anymore to be played. Otherwise I would say rather not so other wins can get some love too.

What about games that cannot be beaten easily since they don't have an end?

Play till you feel like you are done with it and happy with your progress. Another way it can be done is playing it about the time people said on average is to beat "the main story" on HowLongToBeat.

I hope that answered your question well enough, if you have anything more specific in mind please let me know! :)

You too! ^^

Thank you very much for the reply.
When you say if there are other games, I started to check my backlog to see if there is any. And I believe I found one: Reus
I hope it fits the theme somehow since it has animals. :)

Otherwise, my other wins that fit the theme are visual novels I beat before. 2 of them still have endings to explore though.

Also I checked HLTB for American Truck Simulator and that made me giggle. How can one beat a truck simulator with a giant map in 22 hours. :)

Last part: This seems a long shot to me but Stronghold Crusader 2 has farms in it. If those 2 fit the theme, I would love to go with them.

Reus is perfect choice! So many cute animals there! :D
It would be hard for you to decide when the game got beaten. If I remember correctly there is some kind of campaing (in the achievements it would be the third era I think...) and then you can play freely and try to achieve specific goals.

I have completed everything in 99 hours. XD
I can only recommend it! Such nice and calm game. Hope you will have fun! :3

Indeed, the cutest god game I've ever played. :)
Thanks for the info. I'll keep in mind that third era thing since I'm just playing for now without any concern. Probably won't try to complete all the achievements (at least for now) but I want to play it till I got bored. 99 hours is quite a long time though.

Thanks, I hope I'll have fun. Have a nice day. ^^

You are welcome! :)
I have really enjoyed it and played it few times more after I opened all achievements. Also I have noticed that I am rather slow player as almost everyone complete their games faster than me. XD

Feel free to tell how you liked it, when you are done. ;) Thanks, You too! :3

Well, you can say it's really a good game if you still play it after getting all the achievements. :)

I'd love to talk about if I don't forget what we talked here. My memory is goody for quite some time, so I hope I won't forget. :)

Kyrrelin already gave you the blessing for Reus and I will give you one for Stronghold Crusader 2. Literally the 2nd screenshot on the store page has horses, I guess you can count them as your companions :)

As for ATS: yea good luck getting anything done in 22 hours :D I have 80 hours in it and while I do have 100% the achievements I am nowhere done with it :)

Added both of them. Not sure about Crusader since I love RTS games and do 1 hour missions in 2 hours, it will take time. (Imagine how I play Anno games.) :D
But I'll try to beat Reus in this month, relatively short at least.

80 hours is quite short actually, that means ATS is easier than ETS2. Well SCS keep adding achievements with every new expansion though, so until the map is complete, there is no end. :)

Approved both :) If it happens it happens, if not you tried at least! :)

It is, if not for anything else there is no damn achievement to 100% explore the map >.> (I actually have it, don't even ask how long it took because I did it with all the DLC except the Baltics one)
Oh yea, I always look forward to new places to drive through, my wallet not so much :D

I also would've done that if I didn't forget to backup my save before format (nearly 150 hour worth of exploring). :/
And the worst part is, two weeks later they added cloud support. But this time i'll kinda cheat, they asked for this. I'll buy two garage from far edges of the map and keep fast travelling until I get my previous wealth. :D

Sales are good time to get expansions.

Ouch D: It took them way too long to ad cloud saves... I had mine backed up on Dropbox just in case anything would ever happen to my SSD lol I might be a little paranoid and over protective over ETS2 :D

Unless you are impatient and you give SCS all your money the second the expansion launches. They deserve it with all the work they put into the game anyways :)

Agreed, they deserve it. ETS2 or any other simulator games, I play them time to time and there was a time that I didn't play it for an entire year. So I'm no rush getting them. Though when they're on sale, I couldn't help myself and even if I don't play it on those days, I still buy them. The magic of GabeN. :)

Yep, it works right now. And it is ok to wait, i wasn't planning to finish the game today but had fun more than i expected :D

By the way, i just read this (Because it used to take Mouse 2-6 hours every week to go through every submission and she got tried of it.) and if you still need help, i believe i can. Just tell me.

It took me over 3 hours to get through all the comments today (got over 50 of them D: ) but other than that the approving/giveaway managing/group accepting is super manageable (usually between 1-5 minutes a day, depends on how many people finished their games) now and it takes nowhere as long :) Thank you for the offer however, I much appreciate it :)

Yes, it takes some time to get updated and then some time to get approved my me as well as I have a full time job and I can't be there approving things 24/7. Should get approved in the next half an hour or so (I haven't taken a look, but it should be already updated).

Edit: also I now why you had 502 errors yesterday. It was related to Cloudflare and nothing I could have prevented as it was their fault :/

I don't think I've won any that fits this category, but have a few items in my backlog.

Just to add a bit of variety :P

I have a few wins that I've played, but were too hard for me to beat (Snake Pass, Getting Over It, Devil Daggers). Is it fine if I play my normal backlog games instead for this and future events? As long as I have no other qualifying wins, of course.

Comment has been collapsed.

Yes, as long as all wins have been given a try it is fine :)

But actually for this one you seem to have just this one unplayed and it does seem to have animals in it. Is there just something wrong with that game that you haven't played it? :o

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.

Ah, now I feel like I owe an apology to Mouse for not joining the site last month and making her do extra work on my behalf. I somehow thought that by not signing up I'd also be able to avoid having myself on it at all. Whoops, my reading comphrension is at zero again. :P
Anyway, sorry Mouse for adding to your workload needlessly!
