Undertale

I’ve replayed this game 3 4 times (6 8 if you count each separate run). All of my playthroughs were done on neutral/pacifist route and ended with true pacifist ending. I’ve become so attached to the characters in this game, that after first playthrough I couldn’t use fight button again. Music, atmosphere, gameplay, jokes, story… It all made this game the best I ever played. And even if it sounds daft, I’ve learned a lot from this game. I believe that after playing it, I’m better human being. One year after first playthrough update.

Minecraft Minecraft, oh, who doesn’t know this game. I’ve spent so much time playing it. I followed Minecraft since official release 1.1. And when I play, I play only with my friends or on servers with minigames. Can’t say this game wasn’t a big part of my life, giving me a lot of fun for years and befriending others through it. I play it to this day, and I’m not ashamed of it. I love this game. Counted in years (no joke) Still playing GOAT
Factorio

Factorio is a game about automatisation, machines, robots, monsters and all of the crazy stuff. There is also modding possibilities. Worth to play, especially in multiplayer.

Terraria Duh, bosses, dying, sandbox, dying again, weird floating skulls… A classic. 70 hours + ? 8
FTL: Advanced Edition Pretty challenging game in which you need to use strategy in order to destroy big annoying ship at the end. Game have many ships available and has quite a lot of content. If you like challenges and funky RNG then this game is for you. 20 hours ? 6
Super Hexagon Don’t do drugs kids, do Super Hexagon. It’s as addicting as any kind of drug, truthfully challenging (but not annoying) and colorful as Asriel Dremurr’s attacks. 10 hours ? 7
Oxenfree Oxenfree is a short game, it had its great moments and overall I liked it a lot. I like slightly creepy games with some paranormal stuff going on, that you have to figure out, and this is what the game offers to us. ? ? 7
Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is a sort of farming simulator but also much more. At first when I saw the game I weren’t too interested, it looked like another addicting and super time consuming game that will just draw me in and not let go until I fall asleep in chair. Then I bought it and downloaded, played in multiplayer and I found exactly what I expected, but now I were interested. I very much like the game, it actually has more content than I first expected.

UPDATE: I replayed the game on a new save when the 1.4 version came out, Krobus - an absolute husbendo material can now be your roommate. This isn’t marriage but it gives even more adorable moments with this shadow cutie. I love it.

Alien Shooter & Alien Shooter 2 To be honest, I have a very nostalgic feeling to Alien Shooter, it was one of the first game I played as a kid. This is why I bought them two even though the games don’t have a Linux version. Both played using Wine. 35 hours ? 6
Need to Know Ever played Papers Please? It’s sort of this experience but more focused on being an unethical government worker who protects their country from those pesky terrorists! Glory to Arstotzka the USA! 10 hours ? 5
Deltarune Ok, I know the game is a huge work in progress, only the first chapter got made and released. However it really deserves a place in here. Toby Fox games hold a special place in my heart, and I did enjoy the first (and second) chapters of the game! I’m worried about the future of Deltarune, since Toby seems exhaused after making Undertale and Deltarune, however I really hope he finds the right help to make Deltarune a great game! I don’t think it will top Undertale, but it doesn’t need to. I believe it will be great even if it was just 50% of what Undertale was. I cannot wait for the rest to get released. It will be a instabuy for me. 3 hours ? 7
Night in the Woods I’ve watched full playthrough of this game, and watching it made me think about life in general plenty of times. It has existencial topics, it touched on mental health issues, had dark themes and gay relationship. I really loved the story the game told us and boy it was great. At first it was boring, but at the end, I’m so glad I saw it all. Definitely a recommendation from me. 9 hours ? 7
Changed Honestly, it’s a niche game and I don’t have a lot to say about it. I wish there were more games covering similar theme. ? ? 4
Owlboy I liked Owlboy! A fun game with boss battles that were just difficult enough to make them still enjoyable. The story also wasn’t bad at all! 10 hours ? 6
Super Animal Royale

Look, I’m not a huge fan of battle royale genre, but this one isn’t that bad, it got animals in it. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some fun in it, shame it bought into exploitative microtransactions trend.

The Talos Principle I love such games. Sure, it’s a puzzle game, but there is just so much more to it. The themes, the lore, the philosophy. I can forgive it being a puzzle game because it just had so much in it that really made it a worthy experience. ? ? 8

Rating details

GOAT Scale is a scale of how GOAT given game is. Score is calculated in a very scientific, objective, neutral, apolitical, standardized, perfect way. In short, I'm making them up.

Scores with * at the end mark games where the overall score had to be lowered due to one of the following factors: microtransactions, forced DRM, other anti-consumer situation.


Currently awaited games:
  • Deltarune - At time of writing this is 2021, Deltarune Chapter 2 has been released and I played it (I'd hate to have it spoiled). This is an absolute banger of a game that will require years to complete. I think it's undeniable that Toby Fox is an absolute fucking genius and he might just do the impossible and beat his other absolute monster of a game – Undertale. Deltarune has it all - perfect musical finery to complement witty humor, (extremely) mysterious and leaving in suspense action in a video game. This game has heart in it already and we've only seen 2/5 chapters so far!

Game Description Estimated Last Time Played
Little Bitch Academia I had pleasure to play this game for about 11 hours, and I enjoyed it greatly!
It has a theme of feminization which I don’t like super much however the pace of it is incredibly slow so I didn’t mind it. When it comes to difficulty of the game it was just enough, neither too difficult nor easy, even though there was a moment where I wish the player was given more healing items. The story and all effort (cutscenes, planning, enemy design, dialogue and even sprites/textures) that was put into it were really high quality for this adult game, in fact, there isn’t a lot of adult content in it.
The best part of the game for me however was probably the humor. When it comes to humor it’s pretty similar to Undertale humor (it even references and takes inspiration from Undertale and a lot of other media plenty of times!) but with less puns.
Really good RPG Maker game, however sadly the content cuts in about the middle of what I feel would be the entire game. Which is fine, the amount of work that it must have took to make what is currently in the game must have been enormous. It’s a huge shame however that we most likely will never know the rest of the story, as the game with its lack of updates seems abandoned.

Flexible Survival There is a lot to say about this one. It’s a game, although technically it’s more of interactive story. And that’s because of engine it’s running on. I don’t think I can properly review the game without talking about its engine in this case, because it’s a very specific case. The game runs currently on Inform 7 engine. First released in 2006 even though the roots of the engine go back even 10 years before that. The entire game plays sort of as if a tool for slightly interactive e-book was used to create extensive and advanced game. It’s an ambitious open-source project contributed to by many different people that in my opinion is largely limited by its archaic engine (you can play it on some interpreters although they are kind of a pain to use, Android has Fabularium on F-Droid which is decent for that). Game includes numerous artistic representations of scenarios, characters, NPCs and locations contributed by many artists thought the years. Stories and scenarios are very well written, quests are okey even though largely limited due to lack of anything that would track goals in them. Amount of content is actually pretty good, coverage of sexual themes is also pretty wide. Game mechanics include transformation almost exclusively into anthro characters, gathering food and water, combat system, character leveling, quests, unblocking perks, and limited time to achieve goals. General premise is that the player needs to evacuate (timed event) without dying, although personally never been a fan of „do a thing before time comes to the end” so using in-game cheat options you are able to extend the time indefinitely which I certainly appreciate. All that said, the development on this game continues with help of some very passionate people, and apparently a rework in Godot engine is in progress, which is fascinating and I think project leaders made the right call on that, even though it will take massive amount of work to get it ported. All ins and outs, it’s a good game. 30-12-2021
Lilith’s Throne Lilith’s Throne is an open-source Java game. It features main story and side-quests, some contributed character arts, extensive transformation, combat, character customization, sex and slavery systems. The balancing with earning money lefts a lot to be desired, however overall the game is pretty pleasant to play. One of the stronger sides of it is how deep the descriptions of character features go – you can specify anything from color of the eyes to throat wetness and 100 other things you’d never even think of customizing. That said, most of those features only affect some text and small stats, which you likely won’t even see, but hey, it’s good when you can customize your character to its fullest. The updates are rather irregular with the main maintainer not having a lot of time for the game, however it’s still an interesting project that is worth looking into. 12-08-2021
The Forest Of Love Ayyy, that’s a furry short-ish game with very quality art, animations etc. Quality wise very well made game, there are only 2 acts released so that’s about 2h30m of gameplay, but still, worth checking out, it’s free! 15-03-2022
Transylvania: The EroticHorror Adventure Another very quality game that is made up of commissioned art, carefully crafted story and cool mechanics. It has its very own grotesque stylistics which it executes really well. Has elements of MtF transformation. Characters are pretty well written. There is enough content for few hours of gameplay but it is being actively worked on. 22-08-2021
Pocket Dungeon Barely a demo for the game got released but it’s a very good start. It’s an erotic Pokemon game in pixel art style that revolves around escaping the dungeon full of Pokemons. While there aren’t too many Pokemon types yet game features a sizable amount of items. There are gay and straight scenes depending on player’s choice. Kinks include Breeding, Chasity, Gender Transformation, Intelligence Loss, Mind Control/Hypnosis, Oviposition. Qute a lot of „bad endings”. 19-04-2022
Castle Nox Game is relatively small compared to other games here above, but the writing is short, very good and to the point. It is pretty linear but it is not to say there are no small variations in routes and optional content here and there. It’s focused on „bad ends” so player is expected to die a bunch of times to explore and enjoy the writing. Game is heavy on transformation themes. There is art here and there to make the game not just text based, but it is still mainly only text based. All that said, the best part for me is simply how enjoyable some of the bad endings seem to be for me (my favorite being joining the cult of Nox willingly). 04-08-2022
