I don't know Flower. A searched for it, but didn't get any hits on Steam.

However, about "Everything", well:

"Be the Universe in this epic, award-winning reality simulation game - featuring thousands of playable characters, endless exploration, an extraordinary soundtrack and narration from Alan Watts".


Be the universe? Sounds like fun, but it's 15 euro's. :)

You just sorta fly around collecting petals. Very relaxing. I guess it sorta qualifies as a game since you're actually supposed to do something, but from what I can tell of Everything there's no actual goals. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing!

flower, like flow, was a precursor to journey by thatgamecompany....before the latter, they were more 'experiences' than games but had some purpose...

i've not heard great things about everything, tbh...and the bloody rolling animation of animals put me off...certainly wouldn't spring more than a couple of quid on it but each to their own...

Have an interesting Civ 5 game going. I've found myself on a wedge-shaped peninsula which is blocked off by mountains at the top of the isosceles triangle and a city state essentially making me an island. There's a city state on each corner, 3 in total, and room for 5 cities between them. Between those city states and myself there's enough luxury resources to keep my population happy. I've just entered the classical era and still haven't met any of the other 3 Civs.

Time to build strong naval, coastal defenses and become an isolationist state I think. I'll take over the city states when they've outlived their usefulness and my happiness can counteract the unhappiness caused by annexing a city for a total of 8 cities.

Just finished the game with all possible endings because the second arm of the upper V didn't appear although I played it 2 times thinking that I miss something.

Very easy and movie like flowing game. There are just three type of enemies and when you learn how you need to react you can escape easily.

Just my type of the game, play while watching/listening YouTube

There is such an introduction on gamefaq, I wonder if the painting which can zoom are related to game makers.

Neverending Nightmares is a psychological horror game that draws on my struggles and experiences of dealing with obsessive compulsive disorder and depression. Through eliciting feelings of darkness and despair and drawing on strong metaphorical undertones, I’m seeking to express my feelings of struggling with mental illness through the game.

Next game Knock Knock

Edit knock knock sucks terribly there is no rule, ghosts appearing randomly.

Just down loaded Orwell: Ignorance is Strength chapter two. Waiting for two weeks for it. Now I have to go back and read chapter one. The next chapter is in 3 weeks time. I dont know what they are trying to achieve.

Still plugging away at KC: Deliverance which continues to up the ante on silly levels of immersion. There’s a quest where you have to bluff your way into a monastery and become a novice monk to track down an NPC hiding there. Of course you have to get up at 4 in the morning for prayers and follow a daily work schedule of transcribing Latin choosing the correct option based on an illuminated page of a codex without prompt or assistance, and crafting ointments. You can put a token effort in for your daily tasks and skip time, but on the other hand you could sit through each prayer session lasting 20 minutes of actual gameplay time, head bowed listening to Gregorian chanting, then sit in the scriptorium churning out page after page. There are a load of side quests specific to the monastery, (gaining access to the cabinet of forbidden books, etc) that will fail when you leave, so you could spend days there.

I think I'll need a new computer to handle that. In the meantime, after a long hiatus, I've been working my way through Pillars of Eternity again. I've finally got "The Master Below" out of my stronghold, fully upgraded it, and fought off another challenger for the place... and it looks as though I'm just about to catch up to the game's main villain. I haven't even touched any of the White March stuff yet.

Reminds me of Far Cry 4. At the beginning, after the villain takes you home and offers you a lunch, he goes away and tells you to wait. If you actually do it, and wait for about 15mn in real time, he comes back and you witness a spcial ending, about a half an hour after starting the game :)

Finally met his character in game. Was expecting him to be the big shouty bearded Lord, as there of course has to be one in every medieval game, but no he's an engineer you need to help design some siege engines. And not at all loud and chewing the scenery.
