My first time doing something like this, so I'm not sure if I got this right.
I did beat Shadows Awakening earlier this month-- I think it fulfills the " Games where you can change your appearance"?

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. I did that for you this time. Then we can check it and approve it (which we will do tomorrow).
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.

I also added Maize for you as a game playing in Autumn.

Well there seems to be a problem with the website. Might take a bit to fix it since my linux knowlegde is limited. Will try to get it fixed asap though I probably will need help of MouseWithBeer and/or indieone for this one.

Well after about 2h of tinkering it seems to be fixed now. Though we had to revert to an older backup. So anything changed/added in the last 12 h needs to be changed/added again.

I finally beat Underhero. I had been trying to go for 100% but found out I had missed some achievements that are missable after chapter progressions. The twist ending and surprise final boss battle were nice.

I added a few hours to the play time as played before the event to compensate for when I had to pause to take care of things around my house when I wasn't near a save point.

Well insideone will take a look at it as soon as possible. I will keep you posted. Though it might take a bit longer. Not sure how up to looking for the problem I am tonight since I spend my whole free day with court duties (something similar to jury duties) today and am quiet tired.

If you finish any games in the meantime and don't want to forget about them please post them here so we can keep track of them.

It's not reviewed by sam or Nin, as soon as they have checked it and marked it with "Played status verified" you will see the links :)

PS: You may want to upload the end credits directly at Steam or add any proof, that the screenshot is from you and not anyone else :)

Since I'm a noob, I hope you excuse me for one very silly question but what time does the event end on the 31st?
Apologies if it's written somewhere already. I have read everything twice but I have not slept in 22 hours and there's just so much my brain can do on so little sleep.

I beat The Deed, but I can't change the status because the website says, "This event isn't active at this moment" although there's 22 hours left on the counter. Is it possibly thinking there's only 30 days in the month since last month was September, or is this a different kind of error?

3 weeks ago

Comment has been collapsed.

Yep, I'm getting the same error. I guess I'll just edit my participation post here for now.
I kind of doubt that's because of different month length, since I can't find any mention of this happening in July for example.
Hopefully it'll won't be some huge arcane problem to fix.

well if you are talking about Night Call you can set it to beaten after just catching 1 murderer considering you get the credits after that, so if you want we can count that one :)

Comment has been collapsed.

Thank you :) Yep, it's about "Night call". I just thought, I need to finished whole game (Sous les verrous… achievement) to get my game approved. Actually it doesn't make a big differents, since I'm not to aim to top 5 or top 10 or whatever, but just trying to fight with my SG wins backlog :) So if you can mark this game as beaten - it would be nice, if not - it's good too, since I don't want to spend your time.

Fixed. So what are your thoughts about the game? JUst asking since I played it myself recently

3 weeks ago

Comment has been collapsed.

Thanks. Yep, I noticed that you also played it recently :)

Well, I have a mixed feelings about it. I loved that every character we meet (I mean passengers) has their own story. Someone is happy, someone is angry, someone is entangled in their thoughts/actions, etc. And it makes them more alive IMO.

In other hand, gameplay itself is pretty repetative and it could became boring after some time. I also had some technical problems during my playthrough: game is crashed twice and few times I just can't chosed passenger I want (afer I chosed nothing is happened and I had to chose someone else).

So atm, game is interesting, but it definitely need some work with it.

So we pretty much have the same thoughts on the game XD
The thing that makes it more real (having their own stories and stuff) makes it also repetative in the end. Sometimes on the longer stories I just wanted them to shut up.

Also had the problem with customers suddenly disappearing once you reached them which cost me several achievements since they never reappeared. So yeah it is an interesting concept, but the game needs a lot of work to get really good.
