Recently Played Games


I’ve been playing cultist simulator recently and it’s such a neat little game. It is for certain not something that will appeal to a wide audience however. If you play games for their mechanical aspects this is not for you, the actions you take is just shuffling cards around on a board. If you’re someone who tends to go look things up in a wiki then don’t even bother. But If you like researching, experimenting and figuring things out yourself this game is brilliant because that’s what this game is about.

Your role is to learn about the secret mysteries of that world, starting a cult is only a means to the end of finding the hidden truths. So you research, explore dusty old bookshops for forbidden texts and soon you start catching glimpses of possibilities. Eventually you’ll start understanding the hidden rules of the world and how things fit in. Scraps of text you came across early on will suddenly flash back into your mind and make sense out of something you found hours later. At first you will not understand anything and you will fail quickly, but you will slowly start to figure things out.

I found quickly that I wasn’t just playing the role of a supernatural investigator in game. I had to be the supernatural investigator myself. This game character merely an avatar through whom I could interact with that world. Failure became a resource as now I could inhabit a new hapless victim to do my bidding with whom I would share my accumulated knowledge. As they got arrested, lost their minds or got eaten by monsters I remain, my knowledge growing and …oh look at that.

I’M the supernatural being invading a world, possessing a suitable host to do the work that will grant me ascension. This hapless fool is merely a vessel that will be shed like a cloak as soon as I can take my rightful place among the hours.

This game is amazing.


You’ve basically sold me on it. That sounds fantastic.


I strongly recommend keeping a pen and paper at hand and read things, read everything. The game is fairly liberal with hints once you understand enough to use them. Most things you’ll read will seem like flavour text, some of it is some of it isn’t and you wont know what will be useful until it is.


That game only caught my attention because Mercy :heart: Happy you’re playing and have fun with it.


I finally played ABZU. What a wonderful game


Completely agree, the writing is actually really good in this game, so reading it is a pleasure.

I stopped playing because of basically dying every time.

Maybe I should go back and do this… hehe…


I need to get it on GOG and play it.

Yes I know it’s on sale right now.


I was a little hesitant to start another run in Cultist sim after my first proper victory. Since most of the joy in this game comes out of figuring things out I feared it wouldn’t be as much fun once you’ve already cleared it once.

Turns out they’ve thought of that and the new run has introduced a few new things to wrestle with and I’m overjoyed.


I assume you didn’t get it in the Humble monthly a bit ago? or do you just enjoy GOG more?


I don’t do Humble monthly and the steam version still has e-cancer for some dumb reason. (Denuvo). Heck, I even own it on Steam but refuse to install and run it as I would rather get the DRM free version than install Denuvo.


ah ok


OK, I’m sold, just added it to my wishlist


Been playing a decent amount of MTG Arena, but that’s taken a back seat to Autochess mobile and now DOTA Underlords. I also took advantage of the $1 XBOX PC game pass trial and have been playing some Void Bastards which I’m enjoying quite a bit.


This is my go-to-game, it’s everything that was missing from Wizards’ previous forays into digital Magic (not counting MTGO of course)


I’d include MTGO in that, it was just missing totally different things like polish, UX, visual design, and playability. :wink:


yeah, that game looks pretty good


True, it’s also totally unplayable casually.

They’ve sunk so much effort into Arena and it shows.


Yeah. I have a few gripes with it, but overall the game is getting tons of new tweaks and stuff. I’m a sucker for skins and asthetics and it’s a good shooter, so I enjoy it.


BattleBlock Theater with my brother. Such a fun game to play together on a couch, and Stamper’s voiceover makes it so much more enjoyable! A real gem, so so fun. <3


Ay, even devs play games! Welcome to the thread and glad to hear someone is still playing all those competitive card games! (Somewhat joking, they have huge followings, but please, enjoy whatever you love) I would love to see what the other Chrono founders and early birds are playing these days, see if they can pop in and treat us with some descriptive sentences on their current addictions.

In my own life, I was out free-climbing in Red Rock and lost my grip thinking I was going to fall a good 50+ feet so I hyperextended my left pectoral and shoulder muscles to cling to a tiny ledge long enough to get my toes back in a crack. Tore some muscle, bruised entire left ribcage, but I’m alive and fine, just dealing with my left arm/chest being out of commission for ~6 weeks. So far just watching HBO’s Chernobyl, HULU’s Handmaid’s Tale, etc since I haven’t been able to breathe super smoothly sitting up (at least not enough to sit comfortably at a computer and try a mouse-focused game). Will try something soon, Cultist Simulator sounds great thanks to @Fraggles because I need a serious-type game to avoid laughing (or coughing, or sneezing, or…anything that sharply inhales or exhales).

Until then, I have Assassin’s Creed: Rebellion on my phone, I like it. Lots of lore to tie all the games and various Animus Projects together. Just waiting for zone 5 major expansion as it will unlock tier 5 weapons, new assassin level caps, and probably 23 new cities based on current maps and a chance to use all the legendary assassins we’ve been unlocking in events for the last few months. And I can play in bed, right-handed. That’s a major win right now as I recover. :poop: Gamers gotta game! :poop:
