Good fun either way.

54. Escape the Lighthouse: this appeared in the Related Apps section in the Play Store and, inspired by Russ, I gave it a shot. If this is the same game he played then (and I've no idea if it is) it's little wonder he's rattling through them as it had about three easy puzzles and took ten minutes to bang through, hampered only by the shittiness of the interface. The graphical style is really nice but I doubt I'll playing more from the series as it's wasn't a very good example of the genre. ETA: actually I'm pretty sure now it's not from the same series Russ has been playing as they're all of the format "Can You Escape from X" and this wasn't. Also there is an actual "Can You Escape from the Lighthouse" on the Play Store, along with loads similar from the same dev, so I imagine that's the set Russ has been going through. I'll probably give one of those a shot instead now

55. Can You Escape The Lighthouse?: it turns out I could. Or, at least, as far as it would let me given that this was apparently the first game in a series. It was longer than the previous one but the puzzles were less logical in places, the graphics were much worse and it required pixel perfect tapping in some cases to interact with objects; so something you thought was just a bit of background turned out to be critical when you tapped it for the umpteenth time. Which is a cardinal sin in these type of games and means I won't be playing any more of them from that developer.

56. The Last Of Us: Left Behind: the story, voice-acting, setting, etc are all stellar stuff as you'd expect. My only criticism is that
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
the ending just fades way when I was expecting something more. I genuinely assumed that you'd see the death/transformation of whatsername as a way of revealing Ellie's immunity to her in an incredibly bitter-sweet way but nope, it just fades away.
My issues with the combat are well documented and in the final encounter I initally hit the same wall I sometimes hit in the main game (after pretty much breezing through the whole rest of the game). I stopped battering myself against it and watched a video of someone else playing part of it just to get some idea for techniques then went back and restarted the entire encounter. This time through I genuinely enjoyed it, despite still getting murdered a couple of times, and was almost sad when it finished. I genuinely didn't realise that you could thin most of the herd out with silent knife kills, or use the brick/bottle to stun them first, and after that it was pretty easy. I was worried about using the knife because I seem to remember it being very easily broken in the main game but in the DLC it seemed to last for as long as you want. Indeed I would argue that things become too easy in parts when you realise that (a) setting infected on humans is a total piece of piss and always results in the humans getting wiped out, plus (b) stealth killing infected with the knife is trivial. There's the odd moment when end up in an actual fight and at that point everything goes to shit but it's far from inevitable. And I realise that the gunplay being scrappy and awkward is sort of the point in terms of emulating this world they've built but it's still fucking awful and annoying to actually play.

57. Heart Star: puzzle platformer for Android that has you swapping between two characters to get them both to the level exit. Bits of level furniture are colour coded and can only be interacted with by each character--though they can move and stand on other and--so using these properties is the meat of the game. It's well presented and easy to control with the only criticism being that it's a bit too easy to breeze through it's 60 levels.

It used myp for me and I genuinely believed it was him. This led to much confusion when I asked him what he was gibbering about and he had no idea what I was going on about.

59. Legend of the Skyfish: a top-down puzzley sort of game for Android that's reminiscent of the dungeons from the older Zelda games. It's not particularly difficult but it's levels don't outstay their welcome and the fishing rod mechanic is genuinely fun to use. It's also lovely to look at with a really nice art style.

60. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy: fucking brilliant fun. It's basically just more Uncharted 4 of course but that's absolutely fine with me. Indeed it's possible I enjoyed this more than Uncharted 4 itself, not least because the pairing of the two female leads is incredibly well done and they seem more like real people than Nate ever did. It apparently took me ten hours to complete on normal difficulty which is just about perfect I reckon and is probably another contributing factor to just how much flat-out fucking fun I had with this. It also felt like they'd tweaked the combat encounters a bit because you could literally play all of them using stealth if you wanted, which I don't remember being possible in the main game. You could stealth kill loads of people then get spotted and either firefight it out or just escape and hide until the game moved back into stealth mode. This balance of the available play styles made the combat encounters a joy to play, while those in UC4 could become a bit of an annoying slog after a while I felt. If you've played Uncharted 4 you know what you're getting into so you should play this. If you've never played it I'd almost recommend starting with this because it's awesome and more bite-size.

61. Hatoful Boyfriend: obviously it's a fucking weird concept but it's still surprisingly fun for the first while. It's a bit unbalanced in that getting the endings of the various characters is either incredibly obvious or totally opaque but the amusing weirdness of the entire conceit and some of the characters endings keeps things going.

62. SIM: an Android game where the conceit is that you've found the phone of a girl who's gone missing and need to investigate her disappearance by digging through the phone contents and talking to people, with the phone's Siri-analog as a guide. The story itself is a half-baked conflation of The Ring and Blair Witch (or it is for as long as it lasts anyway, it seems to be more of a demo of a potential longer game because it ends abruptly just as it begins) but the implementation of the phone interface is brilliant. It rips off iOS of course but even while you're being led from email to messages to gallery all the aspects of the phone are open and fully functional. Even going as far having a music player that works as you'd expect and filling the gallery app with convincing pictures and videos of the phone's owner, even though none of this is required for the game itself. So not a brilliant game, but as a gamified emulation of a phone interface it's a resounding success.

Is it scary? Or trying to be scary in the brief time it spends with you?

It's trying to be for sure. You feel pretty removed from the action though because you're experiencing the entire thing through IMs and emails (albeit with disturbing images and videos thrown in) so it's not massively effective despite their best efforts. There's a lot of potential here but it would depend how the story played out if they extended it to a full game.

The Hurtful Boyfriend story though is something else entirely. There's only a couple of actual decision points and they serve no purpose in the story at all so it's like a couple of hours of just reading stuff on screen. This isn't helped by the fact that the story here is totally po-faced and is missing almost all of the quirky humour that made the original part of the game so compelling. It's nice to have the backstory of the world filled in of course but I was pretty bored long before it ended. My advice would be to spend a couple of hours enjoying the dating sim game then leave it there.

Did you end it wanting to bang a boy pigeon?

63. The Pasture: a Russian game that bills itself as an 'art curator simulator'. You control a woman in a shiny suit smoking a cigarette who's exploring a gallery. You walk towards a randomly placed 'meeting point' and when you get to that the game tells you that "You won! (probably)". At this point it sticks your character in a weird floating shiny chair and spins the camera round it while a vocal sample loops at a growing volume until it peaks and the game resets. All the while you're moving, a bar labelled "time until you die" is filling up which drops to zero if you stop moving for any length of time. If you keep going until it fills up you do indeed die and the game resets. There's an achievement for doing this five times. While exploring the gallery you can find icons that pop-up descriptions and info about (what I take to be) real modern art pieces which it then spawns into the gallery. The gallery has other permanent pieces in it's rooms which don't need to be spawned in; one of these is a wall with three massive disembodied photo-realistic boobs which all spin round like mammary catherine wheels. Your character will only walk forward into the camera, so you need to keep looking behind you to see where you're going. Constantly front and centre in your view are three disembodied hands holding either (a) cups with a tea-bags hanging out if them which are also filled with giant writhing worms or (b) mobile phones showing video of your smoking woman character as she walks ever towards you. Throughout all of this your character is continually mumbling stuff in Russian punctuated by other vocal samples like a man groaning orgasmically or a younger sounding woman chatting shit. It's possibly worth noting that some times you spawn not as the woman but as a weird looking man with wings who continually morphs back and forward between human and pig-form. The man wears a blue top hat with clouds on it and waves around what looks like a huge aubergine. When playing as the man the three disembodied arms sometimes waves guns at you rather than wormy teacups or phone cameras. Outside the gallery is a garden filled with graves and banner hangs over it announcing "International of death". This is a thing that is being sold on Steam.

64. UnWorded: a puzzle game for Android that has you arranging letters and punctuation to form pictures using poems to give you a clue what you're constructing. It follows a story within a story plotline which charts the decline and death of an author interspersed with books he's written which form the theme of each level. It looks absolutely lovely and some of the visual effects are really nice (e.g. an object dropping into 'water' which then explodes out splashes of tiny letters) but it's problems are two-fold:
  • You don't give a shit about the plot. Neither the framing story or the individual 'books' present particularly fleshed out characters so you almost instantly tune them out and just play the levels individually. There's an argument to be made that it would be a much less po-face and pretentious game altogether if it really was just a selection of levels with construction objects and clues but certainly, at best, the plot doesn't add anything.
  • Even with the clue word you've oftentimes got no idea what you're supposed to be building so you end up just randomly rearranging the given objects until some of them are in place to give you inspiration. The hint system here is well implemented which helps but even with that it cam degrade into too random an experience to be fun. Also there are a few levels where you're not actually constructing objects but manipulating things you've already built (e.g. fixing a wheelchair with a hammer and pair of pliers or navigating a mine cart through a mine) and on a few occasions I has so little an idea what I was supposed to do here that I eventually just skipped them entirely.
There are some nice idea here and a really good game hiding somewhere under all the nonsense but I can't say I was entirely unhappy to see it end.

66. RiME: a combat-free exploration and puzzle game that sees you, as a shipwrecked young boy, wandering round an island and the caverns below it solving environmental puzzles and piecing together the story of what happened there. There are shades of Tomb Raider in the mild platforming and the environmental puzzles, plus massive globs of ICO/Shadow of the Colossus in terms of the atmosphere and subtle audio work. In fact, despite it's beautiful cel-shaded aesthetic even visually it's got a lot in common with ICO/SotC in terms of the landscapes and overall design. In terms of gameplay it starts off very strong and I was utterly entranced by it. That never faded entirely, but the later sections in subterranean tunnels lost some of the charm without the sunny topside setting to marvel at and certainly the game seemed to drag a bit as it went on. Still brilliant and still highly recommended but maybe a bit less than the sum of it's parts by the end.

While exploring the gallery you can find icons that pop-up descriptions and info about (what I take to be) real modern art pieces which it then spawns into the gallery. The gallery has other permanent pieces in it's rooms which don't need to be spawned in; one of these is a wall with three massive disembodied photo-realistic boobs which all spin round like mammary catherine wheels. Your character will only walk forward into the camera, so you need to keep looking behind you to see where you're going. Constantly front and centre in your view are three disembodied hands holding either (a) cups with a tea-bags hanging out if them which are also filled with giant writhing worms or (b) mobile phones showing video of your smoking woman character as she walks ever towards you. Throughout all of this your character is continually mumbling stuff in Russian punctuated by other vocal samples like a man groaning orgasmically or a younger sounding woman chatting shit. It's possibly worth noting that some times you spawn not as the woman but as a weird looking man with wings who continually morphs back and forward between human and pig-form. The man wears a blue top hat with clouds on it and waves around what looks like a huge aubergine. When playing as the man the three disembodied arms sometimes waves guns at you rather than wormy teacups or phone cameras. Outside the gallery is a garden filled with graves and banner hangs over it announcing "International of death". This is a thing that is being sold on Steam.


Only just saw this. So is this a game or a dream you had?

I would wonder about that myself if the store page wasn't there with which to reassure myself that I didn't just hallucinate it all.

Gunpoint was excellent fun. I've got this on my wishlist so will wait until it's in a sale.

I mean it's a different story and new game but it's so exactly the same style that if you'd put me in front of it sight unseen I'd have swore up and down it was a new Fireproof game. The look of it, the sound, the way you interact and that particularly tactile interaction that all The Room's puzzle boxes have is replicated exactly here. So I'm perfectly happy and fucking loved it.

I'm interested in that. Is it good? How long does it last?

My time on steam is 22 hours. Some of that will have been spent idling - but not too much of it, but I dare say you could rip through it much quicker if you wanted - I liberated considerably more rocks than I needed to and did quite a few of the ntirely optional defector missions. I could imagine that by that point it could get repetittive.

Also: when playing I'd recommend trying to not be overly prepare for missions and live by the seat of your pants*. It's quite easy if you play it in a boring way, but more boring.

* The defector missions are quite good for this. You're fairly minimally eqiped for them.
