Island Attack: Escape

Second island attack. Now an escape. I noticed that there wasn't much cool technology in the last game, there is more this time. A few things about the game. Health is the most important variable. If you run out of health you die. Also there are awards you can get and at the end of the game you can turn them in for points. If you want to use an item then you have to press the use item button. I won't give you links to make it easy for you. Also there is a hidden ending that you can get that will give you a code to a sort of sequel (hint of you want to get the secret ending you have to get an item by stealing his keys. Lastly if you played Island Attack One then this game will be easier because you will know not to do certain stuff. Now you can play.

Sci Fi, Serious, Distant Planet Adventure

League of Legends is more focused on mechanical skill and DotA is more about strategy. DotA is harder to learn, but the people that play it play it a lot.

Lethal League Blaze

Super high skill 2-D fighter. Hit a zero-gravity ball at your opponent at increasingly high speeds.

CDDA is a great roguelike but a steeper learning curve than DCSS. I haven't played Unreal World yet.

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup is a free open source rougelike. Highly recommend.

Pet the Pup at the Party a casual simulation of being at a party and trying to find the dog to pet. Good random level generation.

Ravenfield single player FPS game.

DotA 2 the most complex real time strategy game. Very competitive but takes about 100 hours to learn the basics. Huge skill ceiling and millions of dollars in eSports prizes every year. Gets semi regular balance patches, and is completely free to play. There are no in game purchases that give players an advantage. Every hero starts off unlocked (not behind a paywall like League of Legends or other competitors).

Secret Hitler has been my go to board game for a while. Secret Hitler is similar to the game mafia where there is a secret group of fascists trying to pass fascist policies in post WWI Germany, while the rest of the players are liberals who try and pass liberal policies. As more fascist polices get played, the government gets new powers, such as killing a player. Very fun game, but needs a minimum of 5 people.

This seems like an abuse of power.

Fair point.

Ironically my brother came out as bi fairly recently so I'm avoiding him right now trying not to get infected.

Arab. Still Jewish thanks for asking. I look white though (if you consider Jews to be white).
