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.

All my tops contain some sort of anime or gaming reference. Like current one has attack on titan while the other day i had the dog from fallout. I do have some tops that aren't like that but then they are youtuber related instead. I got way to many tops compared to my trousers but im excited to find out what top ill get in my rick and morty crate in the future so it will continue to grow slowly

I have mostly game related clothes... Mass Effect and now some new ones from Hollow knight. Anime things don't sell here or are ugly, so I would need to ship them and that's rather costly, but when I see something adorable I go for it. ;)

I kind of wish I had saved Slime Rancher for this month, since I played it obsessively and finished it after reaching 50+ hours total (40 hours in June). It would fit the theme good =D

Also, does Hollow Knight count?

Also, I finished playing Hustle Cat but I only did 1 character's route. Do I have to do more & unlock more achievements, or is this fine?

Can I enter with Shadowrun Returns from my wins since it has animal heads(sort of)?

Comment has been collapsed.

Not so sure about the animal heads. You have to kill some rats and spiders I think 🤔
Not sure if that counts as hunting. Other than that you might get farther with the love/hate theme. But it's been a while since I played that game.

You know if you don't have a fitting game from your SG wins you are always welcome to join with your normals backlog.
But first let mouse weigh in on the matter.

Ugh ohhh ummm... Very good question. Since I already voted for one of the themes that it is in the tie, I would probably just use a random generator to pick one since it wouldn't be fair for me to "vote" 2x. But hopefully things change till the end of the month :)

I play Reventure now (awesome game, btw, especially for 100% maniacs, it have 100 endings and they are all hilarious), and I can use chicken to fly (0:45 in trailer), and in the middle of the game I unlocked cat & dog characters so I can play as them if I want (1:05 in trailer). Well, I did play as them until I died and unlocked another character. So, the game fits this month theme then, right?
Some endings to lure attention for this little gem:

What the fuck o.o that is a lot of endings. How long does one playthrough take? Because it sounds like fun :D

And yes, you can count it for the theme under "Games where you play as animal" :)

In the first half of the game you get endings pretty fast, for example, my log:
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:59am #20
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:58am #13
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:51am #19
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:51am #30
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:46am #67
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:35am #5
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:32am #59
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:28am #2
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:25am #16
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:25am #4
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:17am #9
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:17am #35
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:08am #1
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:05am #7
Unlocked 12 Jul @ 12:01am #14
That one from screenshot about tripped over a rock was less than a minute 😂
After 50 or 60 endings I was started thinking and explore map more careful. Map is pretty huge and has many secret passages that are reachable only with special gear, and you can't grab all gear in the game at once (it's heavy, lol, you even can't jump high with it). But when you have a plan to where to go, it's no more than 10 minutes, I think.
Now I have 87 endings and playtime is 13hours. So far the average time is 9 minutes.
And it is fun :D

"Bendy and the Ink Machine™" is the first person puzzle action horror game that will forever ruin your childhood love of cartoons."

To tell you the truth, it was easier than expected :)
That wonky physics made it easy to "cheat" and use less objects than expected.. all one needs is a bit a patience and some/several* retries.. it was even fun in the end to find those alternative solutions :)
not always, just sometimes ..the rest was frustrating as you would expect. =P

Perhaps all those bad reviews "hyped me down" (I don't know how to say it, hope it's understandable) so much that I was expecting the worst game ever.. but I have to say that I've played worse games than this.

Oh yea, I know what you mean. I definitively played worse than that as well. I guess that comes from the time when Steam wasn't so full of showelware as it is today and that game was actually one of the worst on Steam.
