Oh boy, I always forget about this until you post, so thank you. I’m hoping I can do it this year. I’m in the middle of Breath of the Wild and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, so I’m sure I can fit a couple short games in along with those two.
I currently have three games in progress. I’m playing “What the Golf” here and there on my phone. I’m playing “Picross: Lords of Nazarick” when I have my Switch handy for a few minutes. And I’m playing “Judgment” when I have dedicated at-home gaming time.
My prediction is that I’ll finish the Picross game first, and Judgment within the month. Not sure about the other one.
I have Breath of the Wild and Resident Evil 7 on the go. We dropped Silent Hill: Shattered Memories in favour of Resident Evil 7, however we might jump back into Shatter Memories given the positive buzz it has among Grouvee members. If so I just need a fourth game.
I’m actually more worried about finishing four this year than I usually am! I don’t know if I’m even enjoying What the Golf anymore but I’m too close to the end to play anything else on my phone. And I can’t stop doing side quests in Judgment, I’ve got so much more mileage left in that one!
I’ve got a couple of shorter “Plan B” games in the hopper if I go into next week feeling worried.
Had a bit of a headstart with the first two and have too much time inbetween job hunting, but I’ll share!
2/02 I restarted (in time for act V) and completed Kentucky Route Zero. Adore it. /15 hours
4/02 I finally decided to finish The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and its DLC after 115 hours over three years! Feels like a chapter of my life has closed.
8/02 The Pedestrian came in on the curator and was anything but. Very pleasant surprise there. /6 hours
12/02 Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 was the Humble Choice extra this month and was just the injection of Cosmo D weirdness I needed. His best game yet. /5 hours
16/02 Wide Ocean Big Jacket came in on the curator and was a perfect short-form narrative experience. Delightfully experimental, but mostly a good de-stress. /2 hours
17/02 The Supper - really enjoyed as a free, bite-sized yet uncompromising point and click. /0.35 hours
I so loved Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 that I thought I’d blast through Cosmo D’s two previous games (having never quite finished them):
17/02 Off-Peak /2 hours
17/02 The Norwood Suite /6 hours
19/02 EarthNight is another curator one that surprised me. An epic and unboring(?!) auto-runner seven years in the making that utterly charms with its art and music, but also successfully channels its Spelunky/Isaac inspirations in its lack of hand-holding and secrets. I love it. Play it on Apple Arcade if you have that! /11 hours
Otherwise, I’ve played some Wolfenstein Youngblood, Hunt Showdown,Ramiwo and Golf Story. Hopefully, I might manage to complete Golf Story if I don’t start getting busy again!
Also, REALLY seems like I need to play Toonstruck. I’ve been sitting on that for years.
I like a lot of what What the Golf was doing, but as a game it never really hooked me. I can appreciate the humour and wit of the game, but it didn’t click with me as fun.
Have you played Guidlings? I think it is short enough (since there is only one chapter available) that you could easily complete it before the end of the month. It’s cute and the characters are endearing. It’s also on Apple Arcade.
Yeah, I feel like 25% of What the Golf is a five-star game, 25% is a two-star game, and the remainder is pretty middle of the road. Which would be less frustrating if progress wasn’t as gated: The game really wants you to finish every level, some more than once.
I have Guildlings downloaded but haven’t started it yet! Maybe I’ll abandon What the Golf and give that a try.
