Who wants to march around the streets getting pepper sprayed by police and probably infected by gross, sweaty protestors, when you can support black people by sitting on your arse and playing your massive BLM bundle of itch games? ^_^
The first game I've been playing is this adorable little point and click adventure called "Old Man's Journey."
It's super, super cute. Just a really relaxing little game about an old man taking a trip down memory lane. Not gotten very far yet, but already it's giving me feels. (It's like doing a playthrough of the first 10 minutes of Up.) ^_^
Yes, but arse is spelled arse. (It's like ass, only more British.)
I think I'll start with super hexagon
oh my god it's so difficult
this is amazing haha
the first level starts on hard I can't even get past it lol
I'm sat up in my seat not blinking in focus and I still can't.
it's all mindless reflexes
pb on first level of super hexagon is 18 seconds. time to move on
playing OneShot. sidescroller rpg that, despite it being noting alike, reminds me of momodora
interesting story. good art. puzzley but not annoying puzzles(edited)
playing anodyne next
I didn't know what was going on before and I still don't
oh fuck I have to save and protect briar cause some guy wants her power
oh I'm playing zelda
it's a take on the classic zelda game caves and sword mechanics included
the setting / world is utterly unique and the story is almost nonexistant but it's a great nostalgia bite for zelda with a modern twist
alright I'll play one more then go to bed
right off the bat looks like skybreak
and sounds like hotline miami
and looks like ancient 3D tron-ized doom
oh fuck it's doom and also when I die it just says FUCK in big red letters lol
alright it was good fun. I lied and started playing Sagebrush which so far has me hooked on a plot I don't even know yet. it's a pixelated version of a place irl where mass suicide happened. very creepy. very realistic. I have a feeling a lot of the stuff in interacting with in this game as I search through this abandoned ranch in new mexico is there in real life. notes from people and audio tapes from a survivor(?)
yo this is creepy as fuck
like exploring an actual mass suicide site that's been abandoned
this sagebrush game is really atmospheric horror like nothing has happened all game but it's just been slowly getting darker from sunset on since I've been investigating this mass suicide site
it's not good for my health to be in a dark place in game unprepared for a jump scare
however the game seems classy enough to not emplore such tactics
alright sagebrush was dope. very good towards the end.
milkmaid of the milkway was fun and had interesting prose
very nice artsy stuff albiet I wish the game was longer or at least had an epilogue
it's a puzzley type narrative adventure thing
In Bauldur's Gate 1 there was an innkeeper in Candlekeep that kept saying "My 'otel's as clean as an elven arse."
Are elven arses particularly clean?
I would imagine it would really depend on the type of elf though one could assume that they're plobably cleaner than the average human's due to diet.
Still, an asshole is an asshole, and maybe the joke was it doesn't matter HOW clean it is, there is always going to be some filth. (Just like the Innkeeper's hotel)
I started playing Celeste. That game is so hard, but an incredibly satisfying platformer. I also have been playing a bit of MidBoss to satisfy my Roguelike cravings.
Just finished playing Old Man's Journey and... Ouch! My feels! It got me! :'(
Highly, highly recommend. Such a lovely, relaxing games. Probably one of the prettiest games to look at I've ever seen. Can easily be played in just one or two sittings (assuming the high graphics don't make the game crash all the time like mine did. Definitely recommend playing on the lowest graphic setting.)
Just finished playing this one, and considering it's called "One Night Stand", this game is surprisingly wholesome. The pastel colours and the way the objects all sort of blend into each other really add to the casual feel of the game, and I really appreciate the fact that they took the time to animate it when they could've just used stills like your run of the mill "dating game". Worth a play through since you can find all of the endings within a couple of hours (though you may have to use a walkthrough for some.) All in all, pretty cute. ^_^
Also, found a fun review for the game! ^_^
"I am probably older than most of the people who will play this game. I have seen and lived in the real world. I have experienced many of these situations in my life. I can tell you for a fact all the outcomes come out all wrong. This must have been written by a jaded, ugly girl who has no context of the real world. Epic fail! And yeah... after only .6 hours of the game I have seen most of the outcomes. The game does not provide value equal to the costs."
Well, you see, because she's just a jaded, ugly girl who has no context of the real world, she's sadly not yet aware that ALL MEN ARE SCUM!!!
Just finished my second playthrough of this:
Far From Noise. Plot summary: You are in your car dangling off the edge of a cliff... ... ... That's it. That's litterally the entire game... And it's AMAZING! ^_^
Visually, Old Man's Journey is by far the prettiest, but the narrative in Far From Noise is just beautiful! There's surprisingly a lot you can do whilst trapped in your care dangling off the edge of a cliff. You can watch the sun set, have a chat with a friendly deer, make out constalations in the stars, brave a massive lightning storm, observe the local wildlife, contemplate your life choices and eventually plumment to your death... Or not. There's multiple different endings and events depending on the choices you make throughout the game.
But yeah, I really enjoyed this one. Possibly even more than Old Man's Journey. You can complete the game in a single sitting, but replay value is good, so I definitely recommend. ^_^
Sorry, not a puzzly game and you don't actually interact with lots of things. All you have is dialogue options... You'd think there'd only be so much dialogue you can get in a game where it's just a guy alone in his car, but you'd be surprisingly wrong. :p
Just finished this game.
I'll be honest, when I read about it, I was super hyped. You find someone's lost phone but you have no credit to call or text anyone. You must go through the person's phone to try and find some way to contact them... But the more you look into this person's life, you more you start to find out about them, and you start to realize that when you picked up the lost phone, you might have gotten more than you bargained for!
What mysteries are there to uncover? What skeletons does the owner have locked in the closet? What dark secrets does the owner have, and by the end of it, will you wish you'd never found the phone at all?
... Spoilers... They're trans... ... ... Yep. That's it. That's the big, dark, horrifying secret. The person who owns the phone is trans... That's literally it.
I don't know, I really liked the concept of the game, and maybe I wouldn't have been so disappointed if I hadn't gotten my hopes up for a great big mystery to solve.. But yeah, I went in expecting to be this sneaky, sneaky sleuth solving scary, spooky mysteries, and instead I was just some massive creep invading some poor trannies privacy and hacking into all of their personal accounts for shits and giggles. :p
To be fair, most of the games I've downloaded seem to have a playthrough time of about an hour. :p
They could have at least made it a killer tranny like in Sleepaway Camp.
I liked the idea for that one, but I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes. I bounced right off it. I didn't care for the writing or the would-be puzzles. Oh well.
Yeah, reading through about 100 happy birthday messages at the beginning was not worth the effort. When I got to that one random girl who said something like. "You're a terrible person. Stay away from me, or I'll tell everyone your dirty little secret!" I was like, "Awh! This is getting interesting!" ... Turns out she was just from the Westboro Baptist Church. :p
Well, they did say it was a "normal" lost phone. Nothing normal is ever interesting.
Finished another one! (God, at the rate I'm going, I'll have played the whole bundle by the end of the week.)
After spending about an hour hacking into that poor trans guy's personal accounts, I was very happy to find this little gem.
The Search is exactly what I was looking for, a nice, old fashioned, point and click puzzle solving game. You are an artist, stuck in a dream world, and the only way to escape is to paint your way through it. Come to a broken bridge? Just paint a new bridge! The gate is locked? Just paint it open! Solve lots of puzzles and escape the wasteland.
Really, really liked it. Very pretty game. Puzzles weren't as difficult as I would've liked, but still pretty enjoyable. I'd say the only downside is that the game is pretty heavily focused on philosphy, and every time you find a new object, the protagonist will go on some long philosophical rant. Like... "Oh look, I found a cookie. Carl Jung once said, "The cookie is the gateway to the soul. What is life without the crumbly sweetness that is the humble cookie? The chocolate chips represent the blackness that is our sinful nature, and the biscuit represents the purity of our true nature. To find true balance, we must not despise our sinful nature, but accept it as part of our true nature. Only then will the sweet, crumbly biscuit and the delicious chocolate chips blend together in a perfect harmony that opens out mind to the..." Stop sucking Carl Jung's dick and get back to the game! >.<
Finished yet another game!
Now this game was exactly what I was looking for. A proper detective game with lots of puzzles to solve. Lots of fun. At first I really couldn't stand the ugly, ugly art style, but after awhile it started to grow on me. (Kind of reminds me of Gorillaz.)
Got to say, the first playthrough was extremely frustrating. Basically, after hiring a group of detectives to solve my parents murder, I ended up doing all the work myself and also spent 90% of the time just trying to get the detectives to do their jobs. They came up with some really stupid theory that made absolutely no sense. I spent half the game trying to convince them they were wrong, but even when I was absolutely sure that I'd done everything right, they still didn't believe me and the wrong person got blamed for the murder. It was super annoying because I had absolutely no idea where I went wrong. But then I did my second playthrough, and... Lets just say it made a lot more sense and the ending was much more satisfying. ^_^
Yeah. You have to do like, at least 6 playthroughs and then you can get one of the two "True Endings". Plus there's a "Special Secret" that you can find on one of the playthroughs. (Unfortunately, I think there might be some kind of bug, because I can't unlock the second "True Ending" :(
> Yeah. You have to do like, at least 6 playthroughs and then you can get one of the two "True Endings".
I just hate that in games. There's too many games to have to do six playthroughs before I have the option to play the actually good playthrough.
... Well, that was disappointing. I was really enjoying that. (To be fair, it does say "Demo" in big capital letters on the main menu page. You'd think I would've noticed that. :p)

Im sitting on my ass
Except being an arse
I havent had time to check out a majority of the bundle, but I'm gonna suggest Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass. My sister has been giving me the play-by-play. It's one of those Earthbound inspired games, apparently the writing is really great.
I already mentioned Days Long Gone on te server. The gameplay is quite nice.
Juuuust guessing, but i think Crystal Story is there as well? If it is, HUGE suggestion. Mother 3, Link's Awakening and flamey flames all in one. Please check it out. Unless it's not in the bundle, hehe.
EDIT: it is!! https://itch.io/queue/c/920065/blm-bundle-to-play?game_id=512214
Just finished another one. ^_^
Winterlore is very much a point and click escape the room game. In terms of difficulty and puzzles, it's the same as any run of the mill escape the room game, but in terms of story and atmosphere, it's much better. You're not just escaping the room for the sake of escaping the room. There is an element of story and mystery behind it, and you seem to learn a little bit more about the story as you progress. That said, while I really enjoyed the game, the ending was very much a "WTF just happened?" situation, left with a "To be continued" that I highly doubt will ever be continued. Definitely worth a playthrough if you enjoy that sort of game, but not really a whole lot to it.
