Welcome to the first ever PAGYWOSG ADVENT CALENDAR EDITION (yeah we are crazy enough to try this).

From Dec 1st, there will be a new GA every day, running until the end of that day. This will obviously be going on until the end of Christmas (it's an advent calendar after all). When is the end of Christmas you ask? Since Mouse's most favourite slave is from Germany and we celebrate until December 26th, this event will run until then.

We are also starting a day early so you have a bigger chance to finish a game in time to join every single giveaway you would like :)

And don't forget to take a look at the Steamgifts-Community-Christmas-Calendar 2019!


The theme for this month is

Gift Wrap

(Thank you to APocketfulofStars for the suggestion!)

Games that qualify for it are:
Games with mysteries
Games with gacha/lootbox mechanics
Games with 2D graphics
Games with the word "paper" in their titles
Colourful games
Games where you can change characters' appearances or outfits
Games that were sent to you as Steam gifts - Please provide some kind of proof, this can be either a screenshot of your licences page, a screenshot of the email from Steam telling you that your received a gift or a link to your Steam review for the game.
Games that look different on the outside than they are on the inside - please explain how you think the game you choose fits under this category
Games where you decorate something
Games with unlockable graphical styles/changes


You can submit this months games you are going to play here:

https://pagywosg.xyz/events/7

(this month only on the website due to the logistics of sending out giveaway links, next month we are going back of not needing to use the website, sorry for the inconvenience)

FAQ


What GA's can we expect?

Well take a look at the comment bellow. You should find a list of all games in this calendar in there, obviously not in the order they will appear, what would an advent calendar be without surprises.

But wait, where are the games for the Christmas days?

Those are kept secret until the day of the GA, but we will tell you this much: they are from the top of the PAGYWOSG groups wishlist.

How can I qualify to take part in this calendar?

This is PAGYWOSG ADVENT CALENDAR EDITION, so you have to beat a game you won on SG (or from your backlog, if you do not have qualifying wins) that fits the monthly theme for the GA links to be revealed on the event webpage.

EXCEPTION: The very first day of this calendar will be accessible to all participants, who have beaten a game in PAGYWOSG November event.

I also want to sponsor a GA for the PAGYWOSG ADVENT CALENDAR EDITION. How can I go about this?

Please let your intentions be know to us in the event thread. We decided that in the case of extra GA donations for this special event, those will be added to the days after Christmas until new year.


Congrats to everyone who successfully participated last month, here are the final statistics:

  • 4173 achievements have been achieved
  • 2639.8 hours have been played
  • 195 games have been beaten
  • 89 people have participated and beaten at least one game.

Hope to see you all again this month :)

Has to be, we are at 75 people who beaten a game already and it is only the 6th of the month. Last month we had 89 in total. Its absolutely insane.

Pink was the original colour of my avatar. I only switched to black(ish) colour to fit my Steam background earlier this year. I only have my Christmas themed avatar in pink so it will stay pink for a bit now ;)

Hmm this is gonna be a tough month I think. My 2 options from wins I have remaining are Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus or finishing Terraria, not confident I'll have time for the latter esp being December but will have to see.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed GAs throughout the year and now the advent calendar, you're awesome. :)
And of course all the work just to keep up with these posts & the site, it's very appreciated. Happy holidays!

Yea this month is a bit of a problem for people who don't have many short wins sorry :( we just wanted to make it a bit exciting for people.

Considering I don't really see how Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus fits at first look (same for Darksiders I found you still have unplayed on BLAEO) and Terraria has been partially played, you have my blessing to submit a normal backlog game instead :)

Thank you to you for participating :) and happy holidays to you as well!

Ah I watched the dev's pre-release vlog and he mentioned painting your units a diff colour. From further searching you can change the overall colour of the faction but not individually.
I'll plan on using my normal backlog then unless something else comes up, thank you. :)

DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition you submitted was not a SG win (at least I only found the 2nd one)? Did it come together with the 2nd one or is it just a mistake?

1 week ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Yes, it's a mistake. I actually started with the idea of playing the second one as it's a recent win and realized I hadn't played the first one yet. Now I realize that it wasn't a win but one of those freebie giveaways. Well, that's kind of like a gift, eh ;) Thing is I started Yoku's Island Express last night (2.3 hours) - any chance I could switch them out? I was going to ask if I could include that one anyway - I just wanted to play something, but I wasn't sure about the time zone thing. If not, it's fine, I'm sure I can find some other wins to play.

Yes ofc you can put Yoku's Island Express in. Fits under 2D easy. Also the whole playtime fits fine for December (Event officially started on the 30th of November at 00:00 UTC +1 and your first achievement is at 5:30AM for me)

I've got the knights of pen and paper 1 and 2 got the word paper in their title. steam world heist and steam world dig 2 these are 2d games. if I happen to win any giveaways that fit a category I'll play those too. also, I do hope I'm following the rules correctly if not let me know since I'm new thanks and good luck everyone.

Fairy Fencer F 1/29 5 Hours Game where you can change characters' appearances or outfits Unfinished
Queen's Quest 3: The End of Dawn 18/18 8 Hours Mystery Completed
Nine Worlds - A Viking saga 4/10 1 Hour Colorful Unfinished Not difficult, but really dull to play... Guess I'll give up about this one for December, having better games to finish besides.

  • Yeah, again, I couldn't at least finished White Night properly, this November. But I guess there would be no issues trying to carry on the story during December, as a "Game with Mystery" ?

I wonder if Tengami somehow fit the month theme. I thought put it under "Colourful", but game hasn't this tag in store. Also game is like 3D pop-up book, so this is related to paper, but game hasn't "Paper" in title. So I kinda confused. It would be nice to hear opinion of our mods.
Anyway I'll add something a bit later.

Hi there! I have a question: My submission for November was Dragon's Dogma. I just submitted the game as beaten but actually I'm going to play this game a bit more. I'm currently on the second run and looking forward to explore some DLC areas. Just wanted to be sure if it's okay to submit it for this month too. It suits well to this category: Games where you can change characters' appearances or outfits and I only have 74% of achievements.

Well as long as there are corresponding tags for your game that fit the theme/category we obviously use them. That does not mean that when your game does not have those tags it cannot get approved, then you just need a good enough reason for why the game fits the category.

Back for another end of the year month! The theme gives plenty of room for games but I'm lazy to figure out what games would qualify for some of them. So I decided to personally take it as a Mystery month since I seem to have plenty games with that tag on them. :D Let's start there and see how far I get, trying not to get as greedy as before.

Since war theme is already submitted, to avoid too many similarities, I decided to submit a bit different one:

The Cake is NOT a Lie!

  • Cooking games;
  • Games with the words: "Cake" or "Sugar" or "Chocolate" in the title;
  • Gamer with the teleportation mechanics;
  • Games with the "Masterpiece" tag;
  • Games with a Female Protagonist;
  • Dark Comedy genre;
  • Parody games;
  • Split Screen games;
  • Games released as the Remastered/Dexule/Remake versions;
  • Games won on 29th (any month).

Special:
Play a regular backlog game (limited to 1 game per user, min 10h+ long)
Such special basically defeats the whole purpose of the event, but, maybe we can do this :)?

Definitely defeats the purpose but there's actually a few people who already play their regular backlog and with 10+ minimum it will either make the people who play 1 game work for it or the people who do 2+ give them wins and 1 normal. Seeing that title when I'm playing portal 2 though is fishy. Clearly private profile is not private enough!

Does the length of the game matter? Old Man's Journey is a colorful 2D game with the tag "mystery", but it's fairly short at only 1 1/2 hours. Also, it has no achievements, so how would someone prove they played? A screenshot of the credits or something at the end of the game?

Hard question but yes, sure. You are still changing how the character looks like after all :)

"Games that look different on the outside than they are on the inside"
Can you give an example of such game, 'cause I don't understand this category?

1 week ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I will give you an example of one you played yourself: Pony Island. At the beginning it seems all innocent and it quickly evolves into something else. Basically a game that presents itself (at the beginning or trailer or description) as something when it reality it is something else.

Also I will take any other interpretation of the theme (and submitted games) as long as you can give a half decent explanation for it.

Thanks, too. I see, or something like Eversion, right ?

Actually I'd choose FaeVerse Alchemy, because of the cover being not really clear about the game contents and gameplay.
( It could have been an Rpg ? No, it's just a colourful Match 3. Colorful. ;) Anyway 2D category is allright, too. )

I don't know anything about Eversion so can't say sorry :/

Ohhh that is why it was under that category! Fits perfectly then as well yes. I was actually going to ask you for an explanation but I saw it fit under 2D so I just moved it there because I thought it would be easier.

( Eversion is like... Surprising. ^^' Can't tell more without spoilers. )

Ok :) fine, for Faeverse Alchemy. ( And by now, I find it more like a Puyo-Puyo game, than a Candy Crush endless match 3.
Good thing, as I actually dislike the second one, but really love the first other series. )

By now : I just finished / completed Queen's Quest 3: The End of Dawn, and will give up on playing Nine Worlds any further, at least for this December. ( Sorry, but this game is really boring. :p I don't need a new Cinderella's Escape 2 Revenge. )

Hi! As the creator of the theme, MouseWithBeer nailed what I meant. If you want some more examples:

  • Doki Doki Literature Club, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Purrfect Date, all of which pretend to be lighthearted dating sims, but actually have horror elements.
  • Omegaland, which pretends to be a simple platformer but has a deeper underlying plot.
  • Fran Bow, which begins as a horror game but is much more like a fantasy adventure by the end, including having many monstrous friends who look scary but are actually kind.
  • Little Inferno, which is a comedic fireplace simulator but also quite a bit more.

In general, I think you could probably make a good argument for any games with cute graphics that are actually dark, games that look like they'd be easy but are actually quite difficult, games that start off with one kind of gameplay but change partway, etc. Lots of wiggle room. I left it open to player interpretation on purpose.

Thanks for an additional explanation.
I myself came up with only 1 example - The Stanley Parable. It starts as simple walking simulator with a narration, but quickly turns into something much bigger

I made the full switch about 2 years ago and found that basically everything that I used (about 15 of them) either also exists for Firefox or has a good alternative so if you haven't yet I would suggest you have a look how many of them you would actually not have available on Firefox.

Does changing characters count as changing character appearance? I have no shortage of qualified wins thanks to "2-D" and "colorful", but there's one game that only has that one qualification which I might go for if it counts.

(The game in question is City Climber, and the difference between characters is purely aesthetic.)

Sadly no, changing your character is not the same as changing your characters appearance. Had a discussion about that with mouse while trying to fit in a game myself :(

Well since we are playing an advent calender this time around I just wanted to give you something short and sweet so you have the opportunity to take part in all the advent calender GA'a since those are only available for one day each.

The Witcher is supposed to be a great series, so good luck with that :)

My offer still stands :D

It has dawned on me that I would miss most of the advent event before I would be able to finish The Witcher (especially since I like to do everything). If you still feel ok with it I'd like to take you up on your offer and finish Bastion before continuing on with my Witcher adventure so I can participate in the advent event sooner.

Wow, I just discovered this, or maybe rediscovered?
I remember when it started many years ago, but while i liked the idea all those manual tasks somehow repulsed me from participating. I know there were recurring topics made, but I haven't checked whats going on in them for months. Now I decided to see what's this all about when MachinesAreHuman included this topic in the X-mas events list.

Great job with event/page/group. Have a bump!

With manual tasks I assume you mean having to update a comment with playtimes yourself and stuff? Because those were sure some dark times. Nowdays basically everything is automated other than people submitting the games to the website. Saves me a whole bunch of time every month :)

Thank you! :)

Exactly that. Without a page(and a database), making screenshots of everything to document the progress seemed at least problematic for both sides.
The initiative has evolved nicely since then. Well done and thanks for your efforts! Now, without those obstacles, it's an even greater contribution towards SG community than it used to be back then.

I know it may sound silly from somebody who did not even notice how much the form of PAGYWOSG has changed before stumbling upon a direct link to this topic, but I remember the old days when SG was much more lively and really appreciate such community building activities

Hey, I would love to approve your submission of Blackwell Deception but I am gonna need you to put your playtime info to public at least long enough for the website to sync your playtime (the achievement are visible, but the playtime is not). In case you don't know how to do that you can find the instructions in the 2nd paragraph here.

Good to know it's done manually. When I switched the status at first I was wondering if I did everything correctly as it didn't show any playtime or achievements, but figured that either steam community is not working correctly or maybe it's just scheduled to run at specific time. The FAQ only contains this which gave me the impression that it's just refreshed on entry submission/update

The playtimes update when I run a command on the server (which I usually do 1-3x a day depending on the amount of approvals needed). It is supposed to actually run automatically by itself once an hour, but it for some reason doesn't work and I sadly haven't gotten around fixing it yet.
Oh I can totally see how that can sound misleading, I will try to reword and make it clearer next time I have to update something on the website, thanks for the feedback :)

Sammy you are way to hard to find for a normal question, that doesnt over take someone elses comment. When the time comes to me finishing all my wins I don't have to actually finish Dark Rose right? I played it for a few hours and I really don't want to be returning to that game until I have to. Between dark rose and dark souls I might leave D to the last letter damn

Depends on what you mean with a few hours. If you've given the game a fair chance and it is simply not for you that's fine. If you idled it for a few hours for cards, without every trying the game, it is obviously not.

How do we judge that? Well if you have several hours of playtime but no achievements you most likely just ideled the game (especially if there are easily obtainable ones).

hmm no idea how much I played it. got 25 hours and 16 (31%) achievements so probably around 10ish hours. Going off the eliminations missions I was in the 4th mission out of 12. So its not the most progress and I dont actually mind carrying on since I really should finish it but thought id ask any way

Oh I looked into the theme hmm this is gonna require work since I have no idea what I got that can include anything like that except sunrider and I want to wait for the 4th game to come out so I kinda want to wait before I play that :/

okay bayonneta fits so there's something
