So I actually planned to play Ashes of the Escalation as an April game, but my brain farted and said "it's actually AI War 2 that you planned to play, right?" and then I installed it and submitted it while still thinking I was going to play an April game. Fortunately, AI War 2 fits Simulation Tag too and (I guess it was samwise since mouse retired) the admin was nice enough to change it for me in the website, so I updated it here as well to be consistent.

Wish tale of the sixteenth night of lunar month - (two 3's or two 4's - App ID - 392370) - unfinished. This is a nice game to play after finishing Yakuza 0. Not really gameplay. Just mostly reading :)

Comment has been collapsed.

And here's my here's my review for "Wish tale of the sixteenth night of lunar month". A nice read indeed. I stopped reading manga for 3 days, because I wanted to see what happened to the characters. The text was really descriptive so you could imagine what was going on. I like how the story has mature themes without needing to show any skin. Maybe that's why it doesn't have too many reviews ;_;. I think the game's story wrapped up pretty well. Not really a cliff-hanger, but really like a season finale. So I wait with anticipation for the next game to come out on steam. Until then, I've got plenty of wins calling me to play them.

That wasn't necessary, i could do that. Now if can't finish them, they'll stay as unfinished entries :)

It's fine but is that mean finishing first one isn't enough to participate? I believe it should've been. I'll probably play few more according to rules just want to clarify.

And; Pang Adventures is actually giving me hard time, nostalgia worn out soon enough.

I do it just to stay on top of things and not to forget anyone. Also if you cannot finish them for some reason you can always delete them ;)

One is enough to participate.

from what your profile is reporting you didnt win mainlining so you would need to pick a win. Just from 1 quick glance Pesterquest counts so I'm sure you can find something.
Once you have beaten all your wins you are then free to play your normal games

Yes, it definitely feels like a very friendly community, thank you for reaching out :) I'm just picky with what and when I play so it's a bit difficult for me atm with my current wins, if an opportunity comes I'll definitely join ^^

Ah I did remember one question, is it possible to donate games for the cause(prize pool)? How to? :3

I mentioned it in my main comment but I can understand looking over it.

Just create an invite only giveaway and send it to samwise84, who just replied to you as well. They will add it to the site which people can access when they beat at least 1 win.
It's a good idea to have them end in September so that way any last entries can enter. It's limited to 30 a month as to not make the list to long so don't leave it to late if you do decide to grace us with something

Oh gosh, how did you notice xD Finished it a short while ago but I don't think it's a good way to do it as I did, I felt compelled to finish as I set a goal so I kinda burned myself out playing through it, don't think I would like to play the next titles of the series, on the other hand, it's partially because I didn't really like it (unlike sam) so I would take years to finish it as an alternative :(

Have to find a middle ground. Story was ok tho, will have to remember doing a review, I know the devs were nice enough to GA many copies of these and it's the least I can do.

But thank you for noticing, it's very nice of you ^^

oh dont worry you will learn soon enough that im a big stalker and notice these things.

Also I totally get what you mean. I added cook serve delicious 2 to the list but unless I do like 1.5 restaurants a day its not gonna be possible. I don't really like the game compared to the original but I feel compelled to complete it this month since I added it. Frankly I have no idea how I'm suppose to get all gold medals when they dont have stupid sides to help ease up the service

I know what you mean as I have both games yet to be beaten, not even trying to get all gold...wait a minute, are you trying to "complete" it rather than "beat" it? O_O

As cece said, this is mainly first for your wins (Play A Game You Won on Steam Gifts, PAGYWOSG ;) ). So we first have to deal with your unplayed wins. If none of those fit the monthly theme or you played all of them then you can use normal backlog games.

I went through your list and here are some suggestions:

app id two 3's or 4's:

  • Pesterquest
  • Merry Glade
  • Splasher

Family Friendly:

  • Dead Men's Draw
  • Sonic Adventure 2

Female Protagonist tag:

  • Silence
  • Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2
  • Saints Row 2
  • Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered
  • Faerie Solitaire

Building tag:

  • Opus Magnum
  • Galactic Civilizations® II

Open World tag:

  • XCOM® 2
  • Two Worlds Epic Edition

Simulation tag:

  • Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
  • Crusader Kings II

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

I have technical difficulties with Faerie Solitaire, the game doesn't have resolution options and it's visually hard for the eye at Fullscreen, so I hope Faerie Solitaire Remastered is ok as a substitute? It's a bonus to Faerie Solitaire owners,however, I had completed Ch1(out of 9) sometime ago.

As I already wrote on the event page it is totally fine to use a previously started game, as long as it is not completely finished.
Just for the future if it is already started, after you have added it, click on edit and type in your previously gotten achievements and time in the fields for stats before the start of the event. Makes it a tad easier for me to approve ;)

The remastered version is totally fine. I have played and liked both. Even bought the next installments of the game ;)

Yeah I had a small poll going about if we can count the thing from FF III as cats, but most people said no. Even though some incarnations look kinda like cats the one from Finala Fantasy III does not really. Maybe you will find a cat in the HOG. They tend to have cats ;)

well when I check the thread I usally add anything that is not already added, since we still have people that do not add them themselves and I do not want to have to go through the whole thread at the end of the month checking if I missed anything ;) so easiest for me is to simply add them all, If you do not want me to just add a comment and I'll skip yours ;)

no, it's fine, it's us who should adjust, no other way around. Because you are alone, and there are a lot of us. Next month I'll add games on the site right away with comment, then.
Tbh I think you should enforce people to use the site on their own and bear consequences if they forget to add games (so you'd have less work, because I imagine to check the whole thread — sucks), but welp, I understand reasons against it, so it's your decision. Just my opinion :)

Hi there,

I've added your game to the event page.

For approval of your game please make your profile public so I can check the play times/achievements. You can set it back to private afterwards, but it needs to be public for the first check and when you have finished the game so I can verify.

Yeah, Niche does not really have an endling achievement. How about the one for reaching all the islands or the surviving 250 days one. Whichever comes first. Or when you reached the average HLTB time for it 🤷🏻‍♀️

My thoughts about Niche are mixed, on one hand i hoped there would be a story but there isn't, and on the other the mechanics of the game are quite nice.
It starts off well with the following setting: you are kidnapped by a bird and separated from your family, alone you start traveling from island to island, and on the way you build your own family that evolves through selective breeding all in the name of survival.
The story starts but never ends. They could've introduced an antagonist species where the hunted becomes the hunter and in the end you stay triumphant at the top of the pyramid chain, or a natural disaster like an ice age or earthquakes, volcanoes etc where you must take your family to safety... something.
It's the first time i play this type of game. so in the end this survival game was worthwhile.

I've looked a bit into the game and it's options and I would suggest one of the following: either 10h playtime, 25% of achievemtns (~39) or one of the beat the game with X achievements, there are several of those though I am not sure how to get them and how hard it would be. So whichever you reach first or want to try for, I leave the decision to you :)

Hello!

Hi Vladislav,

the very old win category is for exactly the oldest 20 unplayed/not yet beaten games (idled does not count as played and DLC's are not counted as wins to be played here). I checked your wins and you won Insanely twisted shadw Planet on Sep 29, 2018. The last elegible win under that one is from August 22nd 2017. I am not sure how to otherwise fit the game into the categories :(

Rise of Industry - Management.

I wasn't sure if the game is suitable for this challenge since you can't beat a game without a win condition and 100% achievements in this game is clearly unrealistic and requires a DLC. I had already decided to play the game anyway, launched it today, saw that there's a Career mode and it said something along the lines of "succeed in your career by building a prototype". This prompted me to do some research and participate with the game here.

To win the Career mode you have to build a prototype. There are several types of them but there's an achievement only for winning with a car prototype and not for the other ones. The achievement is named Vroom Vroom and this is the one I'll try going for.

Here are a couple of prooflinks:

I don't think this is gonna come as a surprise to anyone who knows me or has read what I wrote in the last time.
I am fully and completely stepping away from the PAGYWOSG event. With this month I am giving the full control to Samwise and she is free to do with it whatever she wants (continue, shut down, change things,...).
I has been a good almost 2 years since I took over and pretty much went from a dying event to one that has seen +100 people participating each month. It was a fun time but at this point I am not getting any enjoyment out of hosting it anymore, actually quite the opposite, some people unable to follow simple rules annoyed me and it became a huge time and money sink for me. And when I was faced with the choice of picking between work, streaming, PA, PAGYWOSG or having free time the choice was easy to make for me.
I would like to thank each and everyone of you who participated over the years and I hope you will continue to do so as long as the event takes place!
And thank you Sam for taking over, I am sure she will do a great job :)

I will still stay around as a participant till the event shuts down :) I am one of the very very few (I think there might be 2 other people that this might apply to) who participated in every single month since January 2017 and plan on continuing that ;)

Just wanted to say your time and effort holding the event each month was greatly appreciated and hopefully your (and Skanda's) legacy will live on for a long time.

money sink

A bit surprised about this, is hosting the website that expensive or are there other cost involved? (or were it maybe the giveaways?)

Costs add up over time you know. +50€ on server costs, +10€ on domain costs, +100€ on giveaways.

I'll be honest, one of my favorite parts of this website has been seeing you reaming out some cheater here or in a PA giveaway. Learning that it caused you distress makes it... well, still a pleasure, but a guilty pleasure. Thanks for helping me clean out some of the backlog, this monthly event has been a great motivator. Enjoy your new free time!

Mouse, you've stretched out some pretty big shoes for Sam to fill. I have confidence that Sam will no doubt fill it though. Again, thank you very much for what you've created. It wasn't just things like the website or this forum post format. You'v gathered the power of like-minded people for a great cause: "playing your wins". That means that I don't have to just limit myself to creating PA giveaways in the hopes that my giveaways get played. They may come across this event someday and do it and have fun doing it :3

I've only taken part in the event for the past two months, so I haven't been along on the journey, but it's both sad and understandable how you can feel burnt out even with something that started off as a labor of love. Thank you for taking the helm for so long and for turning PAGYWOSG around into what it's become. I may be new here, but this friendly community's already helped me find the motivation to dig into my backlog of wins, and I'm grateful.

Cheers to you, Mouse, and find (and keep!) your smile again :)

No, no, no way I'm even attempting that Speedrun achievement.
I watched a few videos and I was just like "Lol, nope" unless I straight up use the fly command and cheat the hell out of it, but it's easier to just ignore the achievements honestly.

yeah unless you somehow manage to get all the collectables or you do the silly challenge somehow you can avoid all of them.
the bonus items it gives you arent that great. You can make goat noises. you can backflip when you jump because thats what you want to do in this game and turn stuff into gold which is the last one

I'm still going to get all the other achievements since it'll give me ~ 93% completion (thankfully there's only ONE achievement for speed running and not one for each level) but those speed runs are ridiculous. I'm not even sure that they're possible while using a controller.

You can actually quit to the main menu if you start falling, and then hit "Continue" and it starts you at the last checkpoint without counting as a failure. It's pretty useful.

It's pretty fun, I loved it's predecessors, Zoo Tycoon 1 & 2 on PC, and this one is definitely leaps and bounds as far as graphics and realism, but I feel like they focused too much on micro-management and they made building things really complicated.

Like, it's nice that you can design—almost literally—anything that you want, but it just feels like TOO much and it's kind of overwhelming. I just want to place some staff buildings and food buildings and get on with my life, not make sure my burger joint looks like a unique piece of art. :/
And then I miss some of the options you used to have for food and water in ZT2, like fake carcasses and troughs, whereas now it's pretty much only food bowls.

So, overall it has it's good and it's bad. It might be different for someone who's coming in fresh to it or has played other zoo management games like Wildlife Park though.

This is also an opinion that's nearly a year old though, so things may have changed in that time.

Comment has been collapsed.

I played them all before (just missing Planet Zoo). And yeah the fake carcasses and stuff was definitly fun in ZT2, I enjoyed having more animal appropriate feeding options. And yeah I totally feel you on customisation options being too much. I mean it can be fun for people that really like that, but for everyone else it is just annoying as hell. Especially if there is nothing prebuilt and you are forced to build them yourself.

They do have a few pre-builts, but not nearly enough in my opinion.

However, they do have a very large steam workshop where people who are much more talented and have way more time on their hands upload their buildings / exhibits / decorations. There are a lot of really cool downloads, although it doesn't seem like they're allowing people to create their own animals for the game yet even though that was a huge thing for ZT2 (like, still ongoing thing, if you haven't looked into ZT2 community lately).

The last rule (about the very old wins) is really about the oldest 20 wins that I've not yet played? It seems to me like a rule that lets you choose practically any game you have yet to play, depending on the number of your wins.

1 week ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Yes the oldest 20 wins, that have not been played yet (Idled is not played btw), excluding DLC's. It's for those lazy pepole with 20+ pages of wins that tend to ignore the really old ones (of course any one else can choose one of the those too ;) ).

But you know older wins tend to get forgotten fast. And yeah for people with fewer wins it makes basically all elegible, which is also not a bad thing (but basically that is why it is limited to 20).

Ok I've had it with Cat Quest. I was bored with it towards the end of my first playthrough, and you need multiple playthroughs to get all the achievements. I swear the devs had only 15 minutes worth of ideas and just keep repeating those 15 minutes over and over again.

I'll survive without that last achievement.
