I’m into Sci-fi lately ! i’m currently playing Starsector and Stellaris ! They both have amazing soundtracks ! Starsector is a funny one, because whenever your fleet goes through a storm in Hyperspace, the whole music gets lowpass filtered :smile:

Edit: Whoops pressed the button too soon.

Some I like which keep me occupied:

Dwarf Fortress: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/ If you get into this you’ll probably never play anything else again. :slight_smile:

while True: learn(). Simulator of a machine learning specialist. More fun than is sounds. Really just a fancy logic puzzle game but quite fun as it’s got patch cables. :smiley: https://luden.io/wtl/

Lots (and lots) of old arcade games you can play in your browser via the Internet Arcade. https://archive.org/details/internetarcade

before corona i played (and made videos of) skyrim

but in the early days of the outbreak here in china i discovered crusader kings ii, which i ignored for too many years because the crusades do not interest me in the least, but just like you can completely avoid becoming dragonborn in skyrim, you can actually avoid the crusades in ck2. it is a deep strategy game in which you build a dynasty, with plenty of room for role-playing.

i plan on trying stellaris as well.

If anyone wants to join, I’m in the woodcutting guild. I can’t do anything else though because I’m working and nothing much else is this AFK.

It is the sort of game that is best going into blind as it is all about exploring and figuring out stuff on your own. It features a miniature solar system, nice orbital mechanics, space explorers playing music, mysteries and puzzles and a healthy dose of existential dread while you drift in space alone.

It’s great, truly deserves all the awards it got. If these themes resonate with you, don’t spend time reading about it, just play asap.

Not to be confused with “Outer Worlds”.

I love me some roguelikes, and Risk of Rain 2 is currently my favorite. Nice soundtrack too!

Frostpunk is an amazing game, and the soundtrack is absolutely great also. Can get rather difficult.

I also deeply recommend Dwarf fortress and Outer wilds. @chrtlnghmstr @unlessgames .

Dwarf fortress blew my mind with the depth of simulation the game has, And Outer wilds blew my mind with it’s story, it’s really really amazing

Just came from a session of Dirt Rally. I just went up to the Group B. Terrible mistake. Those cars are mad. The Quattro wants to throw me off every cliff it sees.

In the evenings, I’m currently playing Satisfactory, which is basically a 3D version of Factorio (both of which are highly recommended!). I’m practically always playing Path of Exile at some level, and I recently started Borderlands 3 with friends, since B2 was one of my most-played ever.

During the day (while watching the toddler), the best three or four mobile games I can recommend are:

  • Simon Tatham’s Puzzle Collection. This is a collection of infinitely generated logic games. Totally free, no ads or anything. This is open-source and available on all platforms.
  • 250+ Solitaires Pro (by Alexei Anoshenko). This is on iOS and Android, and is the closest thing I’ve found to a modern PySol. There are hundreds of different variations of Solitaire here, plus you can make your own with a ruleset editor. You can then share them with the community. My favorite Solitaire variant is Penguin (which is a type of FreeCell), although I’ve been playing good ol’ Klondike again.
  • Sherlock and Honeycomb Hotel are two of my other most-played mobile games. These are two similar logic games where you use icons to solve geometric layout puzzles. Both have free versions with a handful of puzzles. Anything by Everett Kaser is recommended: https://www.kaser.com/

For the programmers and engineers, I also recommend anything by Zachtronics. They’re super high-quality “puzzle” games that involve finding and optimizing solutions.

Love path of exile but can never get trough the end game, too much of a grind for my taste. When v2 is released I may put more thought into builds. Making a good build yourself can be very complicated and time consuming.

There’s another great puzzle game The Talos Principle, which is on Xbox Game Pass (or Ultimate on PC). The sequel to this is has a release date for late 2020 an immediate buy for me, the puzzles are pure logic, hours of fun!

Oh yeah, I loved The Talos Principle. That one was excellent.

For Path of Exile, the end game is the best part in my opinion! It is a slog to get there, especially if you do it multiple leagues in a row. The “King of All Summoners” Witch build (https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2642810) is super easy to level since it doesn’t rely on gear and can clear each act in well under an hour. For new players, the single best guide is Enki’s Arc Witch (https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/1147951) which has really detailed info for practically every step of the game.

At this point, I feel like my gaming time has fallen into two camps: numbers go up (idle/incremental games or Path of Exile), or rigorous logic/puzzle games.
