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 either the main game or DLC 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. If my games does not have an ending/campaign what do I need to do for it to count as beaten? For this we have two different things you can pick from: either the average HLTB time or 25% achievements reached.
  8. The event officially opens at 00:00 UTC, any playtime/achivements before that won't be counted.

I played through Deathloop recently, and it kinda fits this: "Games where you have to work together/need the help of others", here's an explanation with light spoilers: it might be a bit of a stretch cause the help/cooperation the protagonist is getting in the game is actually from himself, but the time and death and the dude's memory work in the game world in such way that at first he badly needs (and then gets) guidance/help/cooperation from his other physical incarnations within the game world, and they also appear physically as "other Colts" and communicate with him and physically interact in real time a couple of times too, so it's not like it's just his inner dialogue or hallucinations or something like that lol, so I think it should work. Otherwise, can't think of anything else.
Edited for clarification.

That sounds nice. It seems it fits more likely the latter part "need the help of others".
Thanks for the reply. (Now it's time to add the game :)

how about the walking dead games you've won, they have choices matter tags
or the two STAR WARS™ - Knights of the Old Republic™ games you've won. Also have choices matter tags
Same for Mass Effect 2 or Blacksad. All games I have enjoyed.

somehow I missed the choices matter tag while reading the theme.. xD
this is something I can work on, thanks!
I'll post the table as soon as I make up my mind ;)

..now, where did I put all the spare time again? >_<

mmh.. I see that can be associated with normal backlog games too.. interesting..

Ok, that was a long winter, but I beat Syberia almost at the end of the month!

Traditionally, screenshots. I believe the rule is a screenshot of the ending/final credits, but screenshots from throughout the game are appreciated so they know you actually played.

Ok I got two screenshots - neither is perfect but hopefully both (plus the playtime) will help!

One is of the "Cutscenes" submenu, which shows the last cutscene / the ending available (aka Kate's Decision). The other one is my most recent save, which is at the start of Arabald. Turns out that my last playing session was quite long, covering all of Aralbad, Komkolzgrad again and Aralbad again.

The final playtime is 9h38m which is right around the average HLTB "Main Story" time - https://howlongtobeat.com/game/9521

I'd like to play Everhood, but not sure it fits the categories..
only thing I could find: (story spoiler warning) the Sun is one of the bosses and you have to kill it would that count as a natural disaster? I know it's a bit of a stretch 😅

also if a game only has the tag Local Co-Op, does that count as Co-Op?

"Games where you need the help of others" might count, you get some help in your quest to get the arm back.
And "Games with alternative energy sources" maybe, in Tunnel Demon fight you have to move a mine cart forward by pushing buttons. Based on Minecart wikipedia page, those were originally pushed or pulled by men and animals, and later with diesel and electric locomotives. So I guess it counts :D

A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build - Games With Winter

You build snowmen, which requires snow. So winter seemed fitting. Otherwise it also has the "Post-Apocalyptic" and "Survival" tags.

Trivia: Despite it being a game about "Building" a "Snow"man, it doesn't have either of those tags.

"Game won/bought before it was released"
Does this include early access, or only games that were not able to be played on the day they were won or bought?

2 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Hmm, good question, shame I had overlooked early access games since I'd say they would logically have to count. If a game was early access when you won/bought it but isn't any longer, then I think it could be kinda difficult to prove that was the case and I'm fairly certain that'd be a "requires proof" category. Anything that is early access now would be fine in my eyes, but since Samwise has already made the polls for the themes I won't edit mine now. If this theme would win then I'd hope to late add early access as a tag option (I had completely missed that tag existed, oof).

I liked it a lot. It's a fun platforming/adventure game with an interesting world. But if you like difficult games, you might want to play it on hard. Normal mode was pretty easy imo.
