yeah im honestly having no idea what im doing in combat. Its way to awkward to control and I have no idea what im doing for equipment either im just like okay thats a new block so lets pick that one!

Okay but I will NOT beat 29 games this month. Right now I just want to chill and play Animal Crossing. Going to focus on my few unfinished SG wins, then if I'll bother after that I'm going to limit this to games I've started but haven't finished yet.

The Abbey - we accept either games tagged as such or games that are 15+ years old sorry. If you find it fitting in a different subcategory feel free to resubmit.

Magibot - please resubmit with some actual proof. Screenshots/(timestamped) videos/guides/anything that will prove some collectibles exists will do.

Starting with Pink Rage Otome as a quick one [quick enough that I've completed it]. Hopefully one of the characters having rabbit ears is good enough for games with rabbits. Image of the character taken from the store page: Otherwise, will see if anything else is more applicable while playing if it isn't.

Will edit this with more games as I play them.

First timer here! :) (I think...though maybe I might have tried and failed once before in the past, I'm foggy on that). Figured with being quarantined, this is the perfect time to get to playing some of my SG wins (and taking part in this great event!).

I put what I'm going to try play down on that website but I'll write them here as well to be safe. Hope the table's all alright.

Notes on the games:

Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden - A pretty easy and relaxing hidden object game! The story was quite cheesy (often in quite a funny way), and a few times there were some rather annoying guesswork needing to be done on the players part, but on the whole the game was enjoyable (so thank you Gyhulhu!). I've never played a HOG before, so I had few expectations going in. Only regret is that I wish I'd checked an achievement guide quickly beforehand, as getting all achievements now for me would require 3 playthroughs as opposed to 2...and this game isn't quite THAT good... :P

Lucius Demake - A very simple, short and linear game, but one with quite a bit of charm. Really loved the soundtrack and some of the art. I never played the original so don't know how it compares, but I had a decent amount of fun with this. Cheers moppelmurks!

MMM: Murder Most Misfortunate - ehhhh, really didn't enjoy this one much sadly. Experienced a few annoying bugs, and overall, it just was really linear and... well, boring. Without a single likeable character, it was very hard to get invested in anything. And the main character - it's like they tried to make her the most unlikable person possible haha. Her voice!!! Ah god,, some of the dialogue was grating... Oh well, it was quick and easy, and it did some a good ambience at least? The soundtrack wasn't unpleasant. Thanks for letting me try it Chiba!

Rime - Probably one of the most Ghibli-like games I've ever played! From the story, the world, the characters (those CitS-esque robots!!) to the soundtrack (especially the soundtrack). Really recommend for people who enjoy very slow, subtly emotional, not-too-difficult puzzlers and/or love the Ghibli films. It was repetitive at times and had a few moments of sappiness for me, but I had an overall good time with this one. :) Thank you Olzhas.

Noooo. It got removed. I guess I should've explained. XD
Okay, so I previously put 4.8 hours idle time because I forgot to exit the game when I left home at around 3 pm to go somewhere and with the way things are outside, it was already around 8 pm when I got back home thus the 4.8 hours estimate. XD
So my actual playtime comes down to 9.6 hours.
Before changing the "played status" to "Completed" I looked up times on HLTB for Ghosts of Maple Creek and some people have 8 or 9 hours on "Completionist" so I thought 9.6 hours would be fine.
Anyway, the reason I had a hard time is because of the "Evidence" mechanic in this game that I haven't seen in other HoGs I've played in the past which is why it took a while to get used to it.
As you can see, by the time I played Enigmatis 2, I was already used to it and I managed to play through Enigmatis 2 with an average time.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Hope this clears it up. :D

No, there is a lot more idle time than that. Either be honest about it or I will have to remove you from the event. And yes, since it is a PA giveaway I actually have hour by hour data to back my claims.

Woops, sorry about that. 😵
I have a bad habit of forgetting I have games running and just go AFK to do something else thinking I'd just be a while and come right back to playing, but most of the time I just completely forget. XD
When I said "my actual playtime comes down to 9.6 hours" I was just going off of maths from the 4.8 hours deducted that I do remember leaving it on because when I got back that day, the game was still running.
It was presumptuous of me to call it "actual playtime" when I don't even keep track if I left a game running or keep track of how long I play.

Now that I think about it carefully, while I did have trouble with the new mechanic in Enigmatis, 9.6 hours of playtime seems a bit long and I probably should have realized that sooner.
I'm sorry if I came off as dishonest but I'm just really slow and clueless in general and my biggest mistake here is that I don't keep track of my playtime or idle time. I'll try to keep track properly from now on.
I don't even remember if I immediately closed the game as soon as I arrived but knowing myself, I probably didn't. XD

I guess I failed to take into account the potential idle time that may have piled up from me being a scatterbrain who doesn't keep track of these things properly and so I apologize.
I'll just match my playtimes for my entries with the average times on HLTB just to be on the safe side until I learn to properly keep track.
Again, I'm really sorry for the trouble. 🥺

I have no problem at all if someone idles/forgets their game open/game doesn't close properly and Steam thinks you are still playing it because shit happens. All I want it to be marked properly and at least as accurately as possible. PA website keeps a very very very good track of peoples playtimes and I can tell you the game was open for 11 hours straight and then played 3 more hours.

I approved your playtime now, but please do actually try to keep at least approximate track of the time. Hell if you are not sure and it is a PA win you can let me know and I can help you figure it out with the data we have.

Either way, I approved it now, thanks for fixing it.

Thank you very much! Hopefully I'll be more careful in keeping track from now on.
If I'm unsure of play/idle time with PA win, I'll definitely ask for help in the future.
By "future", I actually mean now. XD
Enigmatis 2 is also a PA win and I recently marked it from "Beaten" to "Completed" so may I trouble you in checking if my estimate of 6 hours of idle time is adequate or is my idle time for it actually more than that?
Again, thank you and sorry for the trouble. :)

Engmatis 2 doesn't actually look obviously idled to me at all? Was it actually idled? Either way the estimate of idle time seems way too high because there is no way you can play through that game 2x to 100% it in such a small amount of time.

I don't know if it was but I might've left it running at some point too and forgot about it so I just put down idle time to match the HLTB average for "Main Story" just to be safe.
Thanks for checking! 😄

Unless my maths are wrong I can only get about 3 hours of idle time for enigmatis 2 summing up the small portions, but honestly I think it's even less

If I did it right, your playtime would match with the HLTB average for completionist, seems you're having some issues tracking how much you play...

Hi, sorry but Yesterday Origins does not fit under old school (just because it is a point and click it doesn't make it old school and the game sure doesn't look old school either) and the search and collect category is more for collectibles not for main objectives. I watched someone play the game way back when it came out and I don't recall anywhere it could fit under, but if you come across something feel free to readd it :)

Edit: Now that I think about it, chances are there might be a bell in it somewhere due to where the game takes place, might wanna keep an eye out for that.

Edit #2: Samwise found a bell in the screenshots on the store page, I will readd it for you :)

I left it paused a couple of times to make dinner, because it has such a long load time on my low budget laptop. And I put the laptop in sleep mode to go grocery shopping once, since I didn't have time to wait for the 5 minutes of the load screen just to get to and another 10-15 for it's reopening of the launcher after the game is closed. So, besides the 3-4 hours I wasn't playing it about as much time was wasted waiting for loads between each level and on every start up and shut down.

I also played it differently than how most people just flow through it in videos and was interested in exploring every corner of the levels, read through all the lore and interacted with every possible dialogue tree. Also, after I got the Hopper body frame, I explored slowly and carefully. It allowed me to become stationary, so I could control my flying and searching without having to be constantly flying. And when I was flying, I almost always held back on the throttle to fly at half the default speed, since it wasn't the sturdiest ship.

Besides the fact that I almost always go over average play times when completing games, the time on InnerSpace would have been even longer if I hadn't looked at videos to help with the several place where I had gotten stuck in the game. Pausing for the videos might account for an other hour of paused time.

Mainly, though, I enjoyed the pleasant music and atmosphere of the game and was in no hurry for it to end, so I took my time while playing on purpose. It was also easy to get confused about which areas had already been visited and where I was in the last three larger, normal levels before the final demigod level.

I just remembered an additional reason for the long play time (besides the fact that I was taking my time enjoying the experience for as long as I could), I also lost progress via battery failure. Twice my laptop shutdown mid-game, because I forgot to plug the power supply back into the laptop when returning home. It was over an hour of time lost each time.

Normally, I would plug in and power up my laptop as soon as I got home. Now that I need to wash my hands before touching anything, I've occasionally forgotten about the power supply. This happened to me today with another game, which reminded me of lost progress in InnerSpace.

Should I edit the time for the entry to better fit actual play time by subtracting pauses and lost progress that had to be replayed?

That would be great. Simply add this time as played before the month, this way it will be subtracted from the actual playtime.

Yes, please add up all those playtimes (dinner + grocery shopping, rough estimate is fine) and edit them into your submission on the website. And see the rules here. Next time the game a game like that will get directly deleted.

I played the game for 7 days and averaged 3-5 hours the first 6 days (on the 14th and 15th I spent too much time being stuck in a level, which is why there are no achievements for those days), but to settle the issue I'm over estimating 2 hours lost for each day (even though I only played for an hour on the 7th day) and adding it to the time played before the event.

Hey Mouse, Please let me know if dark humor works for Underhero. I wasn't sure which one is more work for your checking achievements or if the checking tags can include tags that combine "dark" and "humor". If not I can always use collect-a-thon since you collect cassette tapes for an achievement.

Hooray, I've beaten Holy Potatoes! We're in Space?! It was a nice story. I can tell there was a lot of love put into it. Not an easy game to complete. You'll either need to play multiple times or backup your save files. Exploring 100% of every galaxy is not fun. If you intend to play it, don't do that to yourself. It gets really tedious after the 3rd galaxy. All that grinding for money crafting weapons did pay out in the long-run and I was definitely OP at the end. There is a secret ending, but I'll save that for another full-run 😅. Will reload multiple times to get that perfectly crafted weapons again.

The hours need to be reduced by adding them to the "playtime before the event" otherwise the playtime sync runs the manually written hours over. I fixed it for you already and approved it. Please next time add any idle playtime in by yourself or you risk getting it deleted. See rules here.

The Deed is fine, but Zenohell sadly is not. For retro the game either needs to be tagged like that or be 15 years old or more (or if a remastered version of something the original needs to be 15 years +). If you find any other subcategory it could go under please feel free to resubmit it.

Oh okay, the game(Zenohell) looks like an Atari game so that's why I though it would be retro :) And in the game description it says "Zenohell is a 90s inspired shoot-em'up". How about old school game? Do you think it fits there? If not it's fine, 3 games are okay for a start.

Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek - 11/11 achievements, 10.9h this month (0 achievements, 1.8h before the event).

According to Steam, 86% of players do not bother with the Completionist path, that's the reason why their playtimes are much lower. I would rather suspect thouse who claim to solve all the puzzles and HO scenes in 2-3h without using hints...

I literally am the lowest completionist playtime on HLTB with 2 hours. I guess I am cheating?
I can fully well acknowledge that I can eat HOG games for breakfast and skip all the cutscenes I can but 10 hours to me sounds frankly ridiculous even if you take your time unless you played the game 2x.

And this rule is the reason why it was removed.

Comment has been collapsed.

Thank you for your reply. The truth is I did read that rule but I didn't estimate my playtime as abnormally high.
The game is not too long, but it has quite many HO scenes and some of them are rather difficult. (And I woudn't say the artist may be proud of that kind of "difficult", if someone's asking.) I also spent too much time on the typewriter puzzle in the bonus chapter.
I'm sorry for spending your time due to this misunderstanding.

I played Yoku's Island Express! It was pretty fun, although I struggled a bit with some of the controls.

The main story also ends really abruptly, even though there's a pretty major plot point (an unhatched god egg, after all the gods but one have been killed, essentially) which you probably won't resolve before the finale. Then again, the plot's not really the draw here, so maybe I'm just being picky. I do like how it just lets you continue playing your main file in the same world, with the main problem resolved and everyone happy, rather than giving you a new game+! I'll probably come back to finish that egg questline off at some point.

ETA: Oh, and I submitted it under "game with fish." You've got a pufferfish companion named Kickback through most of the game, and you use "dive fish" as a mechanic to dive underwater and swim.

When I've had that happen before I just simply waited out those 2 weeks from the 1st of the month. The time might still be a bit dodgy to find but its best way I know how long you did spend in the month.

Only other way I know is if you use the backlog assassins website and it will tell you how many hours youve done in 1 month.

I don't use all the extensions others use so those are the only ones I know but hopefully you can figure it out

Ha, good thing I noticed it is a PA win because I actually can see the data about the playtime from the PA website. You had 0 achievements and 3,533 hours played on the 1st of April :) I am assuming the "7 hours" added to the website was by you. Dunno if you counted any idle playtime there or not. Because if not you (or I) can fix it to be 3,5 hours instead :)

I added it myself, thought I had it around 7 hours. Didn't know I had only 3.5.
Nah, don' t bother. It does not change a lot either way. If I am eligible for the count, I am fine.
The only idle time I had on this was were I was trying not to hit my recently acquired monitor with my recently acquired controller.

Btw, would Serial Cleaner count as "games where you have to collect something"?. In one hand, you need to collect the bodies and some articles; on the other hand, every stage has a hidden collectible. So I guess it fits, but I still want a confirmation.

Melissa K. and the Heart of Gold Collector's Edition - "Hidden objects games"
Bridge Constructor Medieval - "Games with fish" (there is delivery of fish on the 2nd bridge)-- (started playing yesterday)

I'm not sure if can apply with the games below

  • Gauntlet™ Slayer Edition - Retro/old school games --- 5 of 46 achievements were obtained in April. I most likely won't unlock the remaining 3 achievements (at least not so soon) since they require the DLC.
  • GRAVEN The Purple Moon Prophecy - Hidden objects games (it has 19 achievements but I only got the 15 remaining achievements yesterday)

Hi psousa,
I've added everything except Bridge Constructor Medieval (would need some proof like a screenshot for that one) to the event page. Entries look fine, though for the next time, either add the games yourself to the event page (including the already collected achivements and time before the start of the event) or also give us the times before the event started here, so we can add them to the page.

And welcome to the event :D

Dawn of the Lost Castle
This is an achievements page for the game with descriptions telling you need to collect this and that
+
screenshot from the game menu

For me it's obvious that main character looks like a complete fool riding tricycle naked at winter.
Maybe language barrier prevents me from understanding the meaning of word "fool' in the current context then let's consider this game as "Funny" cause it has such tag.

Is this enough to count those two games as valid entries?

Hello MouseWithBeer,
You are right.
Kind inspector Moony helped me to check my wins on SG and figured out I have one recently won game unactivated.
That, of course, was my mistake and I did it unintentional.
Then I've activated it right away and now I should be clear.
Evidence of activation

Could you be so kind and check if I meet the requirements one more time?

Since it is now activated it is all good :) However you will have to readd the games to the site together with any proof as I already removed them when I wrote my previous comment, sorry!

I didn't start 3 of 4 games yet and their counters are zeros.

Could you please specify what exact proof you expecting from me on the beaten Dawn of the Lost Castle?
Will my steam community profile stats be enough?

Mouse is talking about the proof that the games fit the categories you picked for them. I saw that you already provided this proof here, though for the future simply post it on the comment part of the corresponding entry on the event page. Because as you can imagine we have quite a few entries to go through each day and it makes our life far easier if we have the proof where the approval needs to happen.

Also for what kind of proof, in case of the collectible thing simply the name of the corresponding achievement is enough. For things like game with bell or chicken rabbit or something like this a screenahot is enough. For games where you need to explain a bit, like the fool part a few sentences should be enough, we will ask you for more if it is needed.

Which is also the reason why we like to have a post with the games in this thread. Because if we have some questions concerning an entry we can ask you here and do not have to search for old comments or GAs to get in contact with you.

Heya and welcome to the event! All good but one thing. I need you to put your playtime profile to public at least as long for the website to sync the playtime and for me to check it (otherwise I can't verify how much there actually is).

If you need help how to do it: go to your Privacy Settings and change your "Game details" from Friends Only to Public and make sure the checkbox bellow is unchecked. Here is an example of how it all should look.

I think the world needs to relax and have some fun.

Fun things are fun

With credit to K-On!

  • Tags: Funny, Humour, Comedy, Music, Anime, Casual, Family Friendly, Relaxing, Cute
  • Multiplayer games
  • Games with sweets and/or tea
  • Games taking place in a school
  • Turtles are in the game
  • Good gameplay (websites showcasing the gameplay as fun, helpful reviews mentioning good gameplay, or other methods to show that it is a popular opinion)
  • Games released for the first time in or before 2009 (just to explain why 2009: this is the year the anime K-on!, which this theme is partly based on, was released. Also not necessarily a Steam release, for example if the game was released on console in 2008 and added to Steam in 2011 it still counts)

Yeah I could include things like shitty visual novels and it would qualify. I'm thinking maybe "Good gameplay" would be a good way to fit it in, limits it to games that are fun to play. With qualifying the games by other websites recommending them as being fun, or helpful reviews mentioning the gameplay being fun.

So I could include "games released before x" too then or something? But what would x be then. I started playing real games (like, games that are not fun-to-learn kids games) around 2007 when we got a Wii...

Considering 2010 was 10 years ago now (o.o) sounds right to me considering there are probably some people on this website that were born not that long before then (or hell, even after).

I put 2009 since that year was the release of K-on. I've edited the theme with the new additions, but you don't have to add them right now if you don't want to because I'm not sure I'm done thinking about adding some more things (I'll let you know when I do)

I think it's a good time to connect with people and remember all the cool folks out there, whether you know them personally or just had a nice interaction.

Community Building

  • Multiplayer games
  • Games that were crowdfunded
  • Moddable games, or games that were originally a mod
  • Games where the giveaway creator wrote something unique in the description (i.e. Not copy-pasted)
  • Games where the giveaway creator or another user responded to one of your comments
  • City builders
  • Games that your Steam friends have played or currently have wishlisted (screenshot required)
  • Games that had early access
  • Games won from a developer giveaway
  • Games won from a SG community event (e.g. the annual community train, advent calendar)

It is completely fine! It can be as crazy/non crazy as you want. The only thing I have a question about is "Games with 6 keys used for character's movement on a plane": what do you mean exactly by this? Are we talking about an actually airplane or are we talking about a "surface"? Because this could be interpreted either way.

Considering the abundance of giveaways last month, I assume there might end up being a cut-off point for accepting new ones this month as well. I'd like to make a giveaway for this month as well but I've usually picked a game much later in the month. So I'm asking if I could 'reserve' a GA slot to ensure I could make one closer to the end of the month? If not, that's completely fine but I figured wouldn't hurt to ask if this was possible. :)

Hmm. Well, i just noticed the rule changes for last months threads and like it, except that when I participate I usually never submit my results (bad on me), and I figure that any HLTB time should be extended by at least 2x to get the HL(for me)TB times.
Anyway, I shall probably continue using these threads as an idea for what to play, and then not submitting the results, as per usual.

Now it is good and will be approved once I go through all the new submissions later, thank you!

Nope sorry, the website only started being used from June 2019 onward so only events from June 2019 on are added to the website, events before that only have a SG thread.

Of course you can
Dreadout was beaten in April in basically almost every single time zone in the world, so unless you really live in -11/-12 hour time zone I am afraid I can't count it for March.

Add mouse or me on steam, make an invite only GA, preferably ending past the 1st the next month and send the link to whomever you have added (mouse or me), we then set it up in the event and thread.

Games where do you have to search and collect something

Just started Darkest Dungeon.. would it fit?
I didn't totally get the intro ('cause I had no audio and no subtitles) but I think the final goal is to retrieve something..
other than that, you go around in dungeons an search/collect stuff/loot..

Since it's tagged as difficult, I think it's highly unlikely that I get to beat it in a month.. but if it can be added to the stats, it's ok I guess :)

That is more meant for collectibles and stuff than that. Maybe there are some easter eggs in there? Dunno, I don't actually know the game sorry.

To tell you the truth, I had already moved on, it was not a problem that it couldn't be added to the list.

Oh, didn't know about the stats counting only beaten games, either. thanks again :)

In the meantime I've also started an HOG, which totatlly fits and, looking throught the site, I've noticed that someone managed to get Darkest Dungeon approved, so I guess I could try too =P

Perils of Man looks nothing like a HOG game to me nor is tagged as such (unless I am missing something), feel free to resubmit it under a different subtheme that might fit or provide some proof that it is a HOG.

Hey :)

I am asking to be sure. I was planning to play Vermentide 2, and the only thing I can see fit is "Games with easter eggs".

I wonder if it is ok if I put that video -https://youtu.be/yEUDx4fZ9RE?t=77- to the description? I mean, is that counts?

Hey, I have seen this thread since months ago, but never participated because I didn't have enough wins to apply to some themes... And then I forgot this existed :).
Anyway, do I need something special besides completing a game that fits some of those themes (besides post achievements an hours of gameplay)? And do I have to do something special before starting to do this? Does it have to be a game that I started this month (meaning that I can't continue a game that I already started a previous month)?
Sorry if that is answered, but I was reading the rules and I didn't see that.

On the other hand... Do new pixeled games count as retro?

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I cant answer all of these since not the mods but I can answer some. When you don't have any wins that fit the theme you can play your backlog so not having enough is not a problem. Same for if you run out of wins then backlog is fine. You dont need to finish all your wins so you can drop some if you dont like it, but you should've gave them a decent try

The only thing you need to do to enter is put your entry onto the website for the games you are playing, if you don't want to do that then either sam or mouse will add it later on (as long as you comment which you should just in case) but to access the giveaways you will need to log into the event page anyway so it would be quicker to do it yourself

Finally you don't need to have a brand new game to use for this event. However make sure it isnt like 90% near the end if you are using anything unfinished and make sure to fill out all hours and achievements before the time. Failure to do so will result in your entry being deleted

From other comments it seems like retro only counts if its 15 years older, or with a remaster that the original is that old. However I dont have all the info on what counts for what and barely know what retro is in general

Welcome :)

Pretty much what cece said:
1) If you do not have a win that qualifies, any backlog game, that qualifies will do just as well.
2) you do not need to complete your game, beating it is totally fine. (completion have all achievements, beaten means simply reach the end, e.g. have the end achievement if it is available). If it is a game without achievments please make a screenshot of reaching the end credits and add it to the post on the website.
3) Nothing special needed. You can even add games that fit at the end of the month if you like, though some of the GA's are endling before the end of the month. If you really like us, you can add them to the event website yourself, so that we only have to approve them. Otherwise just add them in a comment here in the thread and either mouse or me will add them to the webpage. You should do the latter part anyways so if there is any problem with one of your entries we can let you know. Otherwise it will be simply deleted from the event page.
4) You can add previously started games, please add all the achievements and time gotten before the first of the month to the website/comment. Also the game should not be like 95% beaten.
5) see the answer of mouse linked by cassioht

One last question I think: Do I need to post the game before finishing? Or can I finish the game then post it with the required info?

You can post it any time before end of the month. You can post them before or after finishing.

I actually have more, but I only have access to some of the firsts in the series through family sharing (like, I have Demon Hunter 2 and 3, but only have access to 1) but I figured I'd do all the ones I own before I branch into ones I need to play from another library to understand the story of the ones I own.

...If that sentence even made sense, I'm a little tired.

Just a heads up, at least the ones I've played, they're not related, Grim Legends for example, the forsaken bride, song of the dark swan and the dark city, those are completly unrelated and you can play them in any order, it won't matter, I think this also applies for enigmatis and nightmares from the deep (not sure with the last one)

But if you're like me you would probably want to play them in order anyway

Really? That's neat to know. I thought most of them were at least loose continuations of each other (like, the same heroine, maybe?) if not true sequels like the Time Mysteries trilogy.

enigmatis and nightmares from the deep share the same characters. So you shouldnt play those out of order but with any hogs i dont think it matters to much if you ignore everything and skip to the end. Especially enigmatis i think it was mainly the bad guy who carried onto the other ones, dont remember much else carrying over for that

oh, my bad, I thought that would also applies for those, but I'm pretty sure that grim legends are unrelated, I played that saga. the rest are in my already huge backlog

yeah those are definitely unrelated. There are certain ones that seem to be unrelated to but then it pops up in like the 5th one that I cant tell if we have been using the same person or not. So I've just stuck to avoiding demon hunter myself until I get the 2nd one because knowing my luck there will be something in the way telling me that they are connected somehow

I played an Enigmatis game from the middle of the trilogy, and while there were references to previous events and her friendship with another character who showed up toward the end without any previous introduction, it wasn't that hard to generally follow along.

with all them you can say the same thing. you will figure out what happened in the past few gaes. I even said enigmatis was only really the bad guy and we know they barely matter until the end

Oh and playing it in the middle eh. If it was the last game I would be more interested. I mean nightmare from the deeps 2 (which i apprently talked about) has no real link to the 1st and 3rd game so you can play that just fine

I've actually discovered I'm not into the ones that are kinda like combined adventure games and HOG games (at least that I've played so far). I prefer the ones that are straightforward wimmelbilderbuchs, like Hidden Folks and The Tiny Bang Story. Shame there aren't more of those.

Comment has been collapsed.

ive not considered playing those ones. I got tiny bang story though. If it werent for the story I probably wouldnt bother with hogs because I dont enjoy going out and searching for items

That's fair! I don't play puzzle games that don't have stories, either, because I need something to keep me motivated.

The appeal of the HOG games without a story is usually the art! Hidden Folks has those adorable sound effects, and Under Leaves is just gorgeous. Tiny Bang Story does have a very loose plot/sense of progression and some puzzly bits as well.

I can see why they wouldn't be for everyone, though! I used to sink a lot of time into those old I Spy computer games as a kid, so there's a bit of a nostalgia factor for me, too.

I remember years ago on fb I played a disney hog. I just loved disney so it was so fun and I had my mother playing it as well and I just had so much more luck then her. While there wasnt a big story you did have to create things with stuff that wasnt so common to get. You could also get gifted the items but my mums game never let her receive it so she had to spend days getting enough items to move on.

They got rid of it now but they mentioned how they were gonna add Treasure Planet which is my favourite disney movie so it was gutting when they deleted the game after getting my hopes up of Treasure Planet

Aw, no. That must have been so upsetting. :(

It seriously sucks how many of the things our particular generation love can just get deleted off the internet like they never existed. Particularly when whole websites/services go down and you lose the entire community and all its content. It's like if a neighbourhood you always visited was suddenly wiped off the face of the planet. I almost compulsively save web pages I like to the Wayback Machine now to preserve them, but they can't archive everything.

I just finished the Enigmatis trilogy, and I'd agree that it's not entirely necessary to play the first one. It's helpful story-wise, but the second game does a pretty good job at summarizing things.

Desert Child is tagged as retro, so I guess it counts? (waiting for confirmation before posting it).

Game Subcategory Hours of Playtime Achievements State of the Game Notes
Desert Child Retro 3.8 14/23 Beaten Restarted the game after finished to get some extra achievements. Oh, and just in case, when I started the game for the first time, I didn't understand what I had to do in chapter 2, so it took me "a lot" to complete that part (if I would have known earlier, it would have taken me around 40 less minutes I think).

Does playing the game again to get some extra achievements count as idling?

No idling would be if you let it run to get the trading cards or you go cooking while the game is still running ;)

As long as you comply with this rule there is no problem with trying to get the other achievements after finishing the game :)
