Also wow, some people are in a real hurry to leave their comment.


EDIT: Jedi Academy beaten/completed, will update in page tomorrow so my time stats show properly. I have some screenshots made since it doesn't have any achievements. Really nice game, a lot of fun. I might add some other game to this event yet, I'll see.

EDIT 2: Punch Club beaten, though I admit I was getting a bit annoyed at the management and went to watch a video to apply speedrun strats. Came with the bonus of getting the under 100 days achievement. Now, I'll take it a bit easier to get all the other ones.

So I only managed 4 of the 6 I chose last month, ashamedly... So clearly the best thing for me to do is to doubled down and try for 6 again, this time with much longer-to-beat games, yes :D

Notes on the games:

IMSCARED - Man this game was such a chore to get through... Really disappointing. So many just stupid and plain un-fun design choices, with no charm really anywhere, not in graphics, story or sound to elevate it at all. Playing this felt like work, not like a game. Seems it worked for many, but sadly, not for me. Best I can say is that one or two of its puzzles were interesting...

I'll most likely go with Attractio first: I finally managed to make it work properly last night (2020 is starting to become the "I fix the games I won on SG" year).
If I do manage to play some other wins, I'll try to put Strife in there. And maybe Risen 3, since they were both on the monthly challenges at some point and I failed at both months.

Yes, obviously. ;) Thanks.
So far... By now, I guess I'll continue slowly with Final Fantasy III for this month.

As for the other choice :

  • Star-Box was weird, but interesting ( ...And full of bugs. :/ I even assume the two lasts achievements missing where kind of broken by this. )
    Well, I may give it another run later, to be sure, and to check the second "ending" possibility. )
    By the way, I got what was supposed to be one of the endings, but I couldn't take a proper screenshot of it.
    So, I didn't mind yet to consider it as beaten.

  • :) World of Goo was fun, but a bit "easy" to finish ( Skipping options...). Again, I'll keep it as to be completed for others times.

  • Rogue'n Roll, on the other side was not fun at all... ( "Camping Simulator" )

  • I've added, last, Hummingz, as a Shooter game.

Well, I bet next month theme will be fine for all these unfinshed games, if it goes that way. ;)

Hi Whoosh,

unfortunately I could not find Star Wars - The Force Unleashed under your wins. But you have a lot of unplayed wins, that would qualify for this round. To enter the event with a backlog game is only allowed when there are no more unplayed wins, that fit the current theme.

Here are a few wins that would fit the current theme:

  • NeoCandy (games with 4P)
  • Skywriter (games with 4P)
  • City Builder (game with 4 in app ID)
  • The Bard Tale Trilogy (as part of the win Bard Tale IV) (game with 4 in App ID)
  • Space Hero Line (story rich)
  • Glasses Nightmare (game with 4 in AppID)
  • Planet Coaster (game with 4 in app ID)

These are only the one from the newest page.

No harm done. I know the feeling of not being able to play Star Wars games because they are from the backlog instead of wins.

X-morph defense is totally okay. As long as the game is not 95% done you can always play a previously started game.

It's also story rich, but it doesn't have that tag somehow, and it's the first in a series of five, so you could say it's also a prequel ;)

I was trying Windlands today, but I'm not a big fan of the controls. And the game's not that fun because of that. How long do you think I should give the game to consider it off the backlog? I don't think I'l ever actually play and finish it. :(

Well I talked with mouse and you played the game and gave it a try for an 1h and finished the achievement that most people have. So it's fine. Generally I would say for short games about 1/4 of the HLTB time and a few achievments (that most people tend to get) should be fine to show that you gave it an effort and simply do not like it.

Totally fine to add games that you have already started as long as they are not like 95% finished already.

I'll play 12 Labours of Hercules V: Kids of Hellas as a game where the main character hopefully destroys a large structure.

From the Steam game page:
"With your help, Hercules must return the kids home, blow up the factory that produces the evil toys, and lead a strategic operation to destroy Ares' command transmitter"

I'm not 100% sure but the factory and the command transmitter definitely sound like large structures.
Otherwise it wouldn't be much fun destroying them!

Hi LeLobster,

while checking your entries I noticed that you have several wins that have not really been played (they have playtime but no achievements gained, which means most likely ideled). 3 of those would fit the theme too, so please choose one of those:

  • Gun Mokeys (appID with 4)
  • Monkeys & Dragons (appID with 4)
  • Dishonored 2 (story rich)

yeah, I spoke about that issue with mouse before
most of my wins here are from YEARS (5+) before I ran Linux, and now I only join GAs for what I actually can and want to play (which Includes D2 and M&D)
M&D didn't have any reports on protondb (run windows games on linux bla-technical-blabla..) yet so I thought I'd try my luck but its completely borked and unplayable on Linux
then I spent whole evenings trying to get D2 to run but nothing I tried helped, and Im still salty about it since other people seem to have no issues
I even asked mouse to help me because shes very smart, but no luck

I do not. The game reveals in conversations that the teacher / mentor of the main character died, but I don't have a screenshot of that.

If it's easier, we could file the game under Magic instead - the game is filled with magic throughout, with almost every class and character able to cast spells.

Also, I finally beat the game!

Thought I have to go back in and beat it again because it had been so long since the last time I played (last month) that I forgot what the objective was and thus got the bad ending. Whoops.

Dannazione! Just as the game began to get interesting... Boom! Wait for Face Noir II, Which, Of course, Never came.
Despite its flaws, it is a good game, i like The sense of humour and story is good but it is incomplete.

oh im glad i like spying on comments. I actually got that on my wishlist. Do you believe it needs the 2nd game? I dont mind about reading spoilers if needed to give an opinion

Comment has been collapsed.

In my opinion, it needs one. The game didn't answer most of my questions, some of the characters have hidden agenda and the game didn't explain why the girl is important.
It didn't even explain why there are supernatural elements (like a Limbo you visit at the end), a secret society and what destiny wants from these guys.
The game feels like a BIG prologue to a trilogy or something. I wish there was a sequel, it had potential.

Then again… this is a sequel that takes place decades after the previous one. The Attila campaign is a hundred years or so after the last Rome mission from AoE1.

I finished the first game, Underhero!
17.1 Hours, 38 of 44 Achievements

Honestly, this game was waaaay better than i expected!
Nice story and humor, lovely characters, good soundtracks, overall, everything in this game is very good!
There is no news about the sequel, but the devs are supporting the game with updates and such, so one day we might get a sequel! Also the devs are working on a new title, so it's still a win to me:)
There was an unexpected twist at the end that I won't spoil it:) but I say it's kinda like that game, "The Hex", which is also a great game!
Also, it seems not many have played the game, so if you have it/won it, do me a favor try the game! you will not get disappointed! and who knows... it might become one of your favorite games ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Fun Fact: One of the achievements was "Ready for Round 2", didn't know that until I achieved it:D

Another Fun Fact: Right after I finished "Face Noir", one of the websites that i knew reviewed the game! Am i a Seer and i don't know it yet? Who knows:D

I finished the second game, HIVESWAP: Act 1!
5.3 hours, 43 of 44 Achievements

A pretty good point and click adventure game!
Great soundtracks, nice visuals and graphics, fun and enjoyable story, the only downside is the length: it's very short for a point and click game and leave you wanting more, but overall i recommend playing it!
Also it has two visual novel game and act 2 will come out this year I think.
I forgot to say it's part of Homestuck universe (I think the game is a pre-sequel) but you don't need to be a fan of it to enjoy the game.

Shotgun Legend - Shooter, Won it 4 days ago, and might meet other criteria. I just haven't installed or played it yet. Should I request to join the group? I'm not completely sure how this is supposed to work. How do you track my progress?

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I see you found the event website. Welcome :)
This is where we track progress. If a game is not tagged with one of the tags, then we need a good explanation for the category you chose or something like a screenshot or video. So if you come across any magic while playing the game just take a screenshot and link it in the notes of your event entry on the event page. We will wait with the inital approval for something like that (the same is of course true for any other category this game would potentially fit).

Once you are finished with the game, switch your entry to either beaten (you have the end achievment) or completed (you have all achievements). If your game has no achievments, make a screenshot of the end credits and put it in the notes on the event page.
After the final approval GA's will be available on the eventpage.

Don't feel ashamed. You are nearly done with them. Look at my wall of unplayed wins. I am trying to get to 75% wins done this year and am nearing the 60% mark (this is from 42% in January). Also this is why we are all here. To get rid of the unplayed wins and enjoy ourselfs.

I'm not able to choose The Walking Dead: Michonne (which I'm definitely going to be playing this month), the only Walking Dead game listing is The Final Season. Should I choose that one and just write underneath the correct name or something else?

Put it in for you. What I have found works most times is using the app ID to look for the game :)

It's probably because the game was removed from Steam and moved to Epic and now moved back.

Hello,
Since I've been watching this topic for so long, maybe I should participate.
I have two games that may possibly fit the criteria
1) Phoning Home
Games with one of the following tags: Science-fiction and Games that contain a 4 in the app ID (431650) // I had started the game well when I won it and as I often forget to finish it. In that case do I have to start from the beginning?
2) Republique
Games with one of the following tags: Story Rich, Sci-Fi,

Hi Akuburanir,

first off welcome to the event :)
Both games are totally fine and I have added them to the event page and approved them for you.

You can play previously started games, but please for the future add the time already spent + achievemtns to the event page or here in thread so that we can get acurate stats. If you have to replay the game please add a small note to the game, so that we do not harrass you about inflated playtime ;)
You can idle games all you like, but please add any idle time to the time before the event, since we are going for the pure playtime.

Checking your wins I found some more that fit this months theme :

  • Dragon Fin Soup (Magic)
  • The Sexy Brutale (Story Rich)
  • Eximius: Seize the Frontline (Shooter)

If you should ever have no win that fits the theme you can take part with your normal backlog games that fit.

Thanks
I'm going to try to do Phoning Home because I'm trying to finish the games I started now.
Then Sexy Brutal if I finish Phoning Home
I had some doubts for the other games, for Eximius, I think there's no end given that it's mostly a multiplayer game?

Hey, I am having trouble with your website recording my playtime. I think the problem may actually be on steam's end so not sure what you can do about it but here is the situation. I am trying to complete an old game that I won on SG (Star Wars Jedi Knight- Jedi Academy). I initially installed and played for just under an hour before I left to make myself dinner. That playtime is recorded accurately on your site. However, when I tried to relaunched the game, I had to verify the integrity of the game files before it would launch properly (possibly due to this being an old game). After testing this repeatedly, it appears that I have to do this every time I want to play this game.

Normally this wouldn't be a big deal (verifying the files takes mere seconds) but it seems that all playtime after the first time I had to verify the integrity of the game files isn't be recorded on your site. Not sure if there is anything you can do on your end to fix it, but if not may I remove this entry and try to play a different game instead?

No worries. I have not run an update on the play time yet. It's not automated, I actually have to run the script manually. But it should get all your times then. And even if not I can verify the playtime by hand once you finish the game.

Great, thanks! I've never done one of these before so I assumed that it updated manually and since the "error" occurred right when I was having trouble with the game, I thought they must coincide.

Thanks for the fast response =)

Hey, talking about Jedi Academy, I've been running the same game. I left a note after beating it and marking it as completed. I'm not in a hurry about having it verified, but if for some reason it doesn't pass (no achievements tends to make it harder I suppose), I hope you can tell me.

Also, I was wondering, how can someone add to the reward games? I wouldn't mind throwing a GA for these events sometimes.

For games without achievements a screenshot of the end credits or something like that, linked on the event page helps us verify it quickly :)
Will get to appoving soon, I am just now in nightshift rotation which means I will do it sometime during the night as work allows.

And for adding a GA simply add me on Steam and send me the link to the GA and I will put it on the event page and in the thread. For the GA itself: GA should be invite only, ending preferable after the last day of the current month (meaning beginning of June).

Alright, as I said, I'm not in a hurry, but I only noticed about the game not having achievements after starting playing, so I guessed the screenshots would suffice, but wanted to make sure about it. I'm about to hit bed so if you don't mind, I'll link them in the comment tomorrow. Same goes for making the GA. Thanks for clarifying :)

I was wondering - how are you gonna know when somebody's done with the game they intended to play? Just came here to report that fact in my case and couldn't find a comment to reply to. I certainly do believe you are a skilled crew managing this event every single month, but I have my doubts regarding your psychic abilities...

We are all psychic ;)

Honestly people usually mark their games either beaten or completed on the event page (which I check once each day) or simply comment here if they do not want to use the page (though those will be checked once at the end of the event), also check FAQ

And to know when something is beaten and if it was truely beaten, well if it has achievements we will look for the end one and check those If it does not have achievements a screenshot of the end credits should be provided.

Thanks for letting me know! All good then, chievos achieved, screenshot posted, status exchanged, patience required :)

Still curious tho - how do you know which "beaten/completed" status reports are new on the website? I would imagine it can get pretty chaotic towards the end of the month when more and more people drop in. I haven't found a way to sort the entries. Do admins have such powers?

Well you can't see it, but the advantage of being an admin is that we do have an approval button next to all non yet approved beaten/completed games and we can sort them out, so we only see the ones that need attention ;)
Otherwise it would be quite something XD

Depends what you want sorted. You can sort them by player, game name /Id and subcategory and also by status (unfinished, beaten, completed and beaten & completed). And if you are looking just for your entries, click on the "me" button on top, next to Player.

Small question about the prequel category: is it simply that game 1 counts as prequel to game 2? ^^

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

EDIT:

As moony pointed out a prequel should play before the previous game, but has been released after it. So in your example it sould be:

game 2 needs to play chornologicly playing before game 1 to be counted as a prequel.

Mh I always thought prequel means a sequel which plays before the action of the former game/movie. So like Life is Strange - Before the storm 🤔

Welp, I kinda thought prequel is the opposite to sequel (i.e. previous part) xD
With the strict definition nearly no games exist that fit, guess that explains why that category is empty.

another small question, does

Bundled games that are the 4th game in the relevant deals thread list

also include being bundled 4 times?

And a fun fact, the game Path of Sin: Greed was submitted as first entry both this and last month, what are the odds ^^

Comment has been collapsed.

Yeah when thinking of prequel think of the newer Star Wars films that were released after the original trilogy but play chronologically before them.

And no it only pertains to games being the 4th entry in a bundle so basically you want to play game X and it was bundled, then you can play it when:

game 1
game 2
game 3
game X
game 5 etc.

Just give the bundle name and if possible a link to the bundle, makes it easier on me.

Very slim indeed, at least I would guess so, that the same game was submitted twice in a row.

One last little question ^^

about >"Bundled games that are the 4th game in the relevant deals thread list"

Does this count as a bundle-list? It has bundle in its name at least ;-)

Honestly I think bundles was more meant outside of steam. But you are not wrong. It's a bundle. Also if we are talking Secret of Magia it also has the tag of Shoot'em'up so you could argue that it is also a shooter

Completed all achievements. The game is much harder than expected, the enemies are extremely strong and can knock you down with just a few hits and the clunky fighting system/controls are not helping xD
Now I also know where the shoot'em'up tag comes from, you can essentially shoot magic projectiles towards the enemies.

Thanks and sorry for making extra work for you ^^

Hi there,

submissions are closed for anyone, where the month is completed. Since you are, as far as i can tell, in the same time zone as me and mouse, I am sorry to tell you, that we can't accept them for May. But what you could do, is add them to your submissions for the new month event, since one of the subthemes is Games added to old PAGYWOSG events which are not beaten yet

You can find the new theme here

I think I finished Phoning Home, 7 hours to finish the game by taking back an old save in the desert and already quite a lot of explorations (with a little backtracking to find the other robot) and I managed to get 29 more hits.(Having manual saves helps to have both ends, as I don't think I'll ever play the game again. There's just a choice to be made, a bit like a certain Mass Effect)

Concerning the successes, not 100% because you have to redo the game several times or load old saves. I think some are buggy because I shouldn't have had them I think.

A lot of crashes during my playing hours and some areas are quite tiring for the eyes. I think that's why I stopped playing. I'm glad I finished it.

You can add any games that fit the criteria, e.g. are SG wins (unplayed or not yet completed before the beginning of the event on May 1st, games won during the event are obviously okay too) and fit one of the themes. It does not matter if you post them here first before playing them.

The posting here part is to make life easier for us in case that there is something wrong with your submission. Then we can notify you here or ask questions ;)

I encountered something odd when I editd my entry on the event page from 'unfinished' to completed'.

My win to play for this month is "The Complex", which I stated in this comment on May, 1st at 23:16. My first achievement for the game is from May 1st 23:39.
BUT now the event page states, that I had 9 achievements and 1.6h of playtime before the event started... which isn't true. Any idea what happened... and will this disqualify me?

There is a glitch in the script we use that sometimes attributes achievements/times gotten to before the month if you have gotten them before adding it to the site. I check all entries manually anyways when I approve them and correct the times/achievements. You can do the same if you notice it before me.

And for the second part, I simply have not run the script yet today. It's not an automated process, meaning I have to run the script by hand. This will happen usually once a day around 8pm CEST unless I am super bored and will do it earlier in the day.

So no worries, please. Everything is fine.

There's a thing going where people think "sad story = good story" and I feel that's a reason why a lot of maybe passable or just outright bad games get a pass and get praised. I can't say for this game either, I haven't played it, but looking at the gameplay it doesn't look amazing. As an example I have actually played, I would say "A Story About My Uncle" is way overrated and not worth anyone's time, despite the positive reviews other people give it.

Comment has been collapsed.

Oh definitely agree for both. I have played story about my uncle and it was fine enough but I wouldn't say it was that good. I haven't played brothers apart from the 1st bit as a demo years ago. I have watched it and I liked it but I know if I had played it myself it would be boring and annoying trying to control 2 people at the same time especially when you are trying to avoid failing. Plus the games I see people say is sad and that you will cry just don't get to me. So I'm stuck there like sure its sad but am I emotionally invested? No.

That's pretty much how I felt: yeah, the story was sad, but it didn't really make me sad. The way people talked about it I expected "Grave of the Fireflies" amount of crying, but mostly I was just bored and wanted it to be done.

see even that didn't make me sad. I have weird moments when I decide to finally cry and its like the tiniest and silliest things. Oh this happy ending in princess evangile youve played 5 times yeah you will cry so hard for that, but an actual sad moment ha thats just silly!

I also played Brothers this month and I pretty much had the opposite experience you did. I first watched a let's play of this game years back, so eventhough I had forgotten the details, I remembered the main story and the 'plot twist'. I found out that playing the game was very different from watching someone else play it and controlling the characters made me more invested in the mechanics and the environment. I was now more aware of the dynamic between the two characters and how the two balance each other out, due to different actions being performed by different triggers, and this being spun on its head near the end was really clever imo

I don't think anyone likes the game for being a cinematic masterpiece (atleast, I don't hope so), it's a tragic version of a standard hero's journey and the plot itself is pretty barebones. The entire appeal of the game is using the game controls in a manner that is new and frustrating and getting attached to the brothers as you feel comfortable with controlling the right triggers for the specific brother. If that doesn't do it for you, then the climax of the story is pretty meaningless as you are meant to feel the loss through the inability to use certain features. Basically, people like this game not because it's a sad masterpiece, but because it uses the medium of video game to tell a decent story in a manner that's never been done before.
