hey everybody! I’ve been thinking about something and I thought I might ask here… Are there any relaxing games?
You know, something that’s just delightful to read, be it for the way the narrator addresses you, or the atmosphere and such, just suggestions in general for games you found relaxing?
And by relaxing I don’t mean necessarily slow or overly simplified, just like, a nice experience!
I love me a good ol’ thriller and adrenaline filled story, but from time to time I come across games in which either the narrator addresses you in a calm manner, or describe certain situations in a fun, lighthearted and and lovely way, or maybe there’s a certain character that simply makes your MC feel right at home and you just unwind reading it! I was wondering if there were more games that did this!
Hmm, relaxing is tough since plot tends to center on conflict. I suppose it depends on what you find relaxing. Even romances can prove stressful for some people. I actually find text-based games relaxing in general because they mostly involve reading. I don’t think there’s anything so idle slash sleep-inducing as a resource management game or crossword puzzle. Gun to my head, I would say the most “relaxing” CoG/HG I’ve played is Tin Star? (That may sound ridiculous to some.) It’s so long that I find the pace is slower (room to breathe) and a lot of the scenery is the open desert. @Cloudinthehead
With the VERY recent release of the first WIP for Bracken Fell, I was wondering if there are any other games, finished or not, where you play a totallly not human MC. As in, not humanoid either. It can be an animal, anthropomorphic or not, or a toy or whatever. Creatures like fox spirits that transform into humans don’t really work either for that specific theme.
And well, preferably with romance!
Hi everyone, is this a thread suitable to look for certain features of a game?
I’m looking for a game where micromanagement exists, with daily/monthly/annual report of production v.s. expenses, trying to reach a surplus and avoiding resource depletion, expanding your fiefs / properties / anything you own as the story progress, it doesn’t have to precisely about collecting resources but able to make the readers feel that micromanagement is an important part of the game, and leaning more toward challenging than frustating.
Depending on if you want the disorder/disability to be a real-life one, Mind Blind has you being a psychic zero, meaning that you actually broadcast your thoughts to any nearby telepaths. It’s also the biggest trauma conga line that I’ve seen in CoG games so far.
The second biggest trauma conga line is in A Mage Reborn - I hope you like PTSD-triggered flashbacks. You can also pick up a shattered knee (accompanied with permanent limp) very early on, but it doesn’t really impact the story, so I’m not sure it counts for your purposes.
Helloooo, I’m looking for games where I can play as an Elf. Also games where I can play someone middle-aged, or where there’s middle-aged/mature romance going on! Ideally way beyond the initial flirty phase including marriage. Also anything where I could play as queen (excluding Guinevere, know that one very well :P).
I think this would need a clarification of what kind of an elf is required. Santa’s elves are completely different creatures from your stock fantasy elves (and it bugs me endlessly that they’ve been shelved together, but that’s not for here and now) and neither are, as far as I understand, fae, so it’d be important to know what is needed here.
Hey don’t shoot the messenger . They didn’t specify and Santa’s elves are technically a type of elf. Usually if people are looking for sidhe mythology/folklore type fae they specify, otherwise we’re usually going for “whatever goes type elves” or the popular modern movie type ones.
