What were your favourite games this year?
I plan to play more during my vacation until January, but for now my top list from around 40 played games looks like this:
- Pentiment (PC)
- Roguebook (Switch)
- Backpack Hero (PC)
- Project Zomboid (PC)
- Vampire Survivors (PC)
- A little to the Left (PC)
I still have to finish it, but think Pentiment might be very interesting for history buffs like Eggyslav , because it seems to care a lot about how to show us the medieval times. It's also about the early days of letterpress printing and plays with different font types. You have to solve a murder case in a convent, which reminded me of The name of the Rose. The artstyle is also beautiful and well fitting fot the subject. Just prepare to read a lot.
Roguebook is the first card based roguelike I really enjoyed since my Slay the Spire addiction. But the Switch version did not save my progress several times, so I would recommend to get the PC version instead.
Backpack Hero is still in Early Access, but I think the idea is very satisfying. You just manage your inventory while exploring a dungeon. The way you place the weapons, potions or armor let you fight better or improve in other ways. It's a mix between puzzle game and dungeon crawler, and I'm curious to see how this will look in the end, because there already is a lot of content.
