Tag: Steam Game


I just love this game so dang much.

The story is amazing, and the art style is very comic-like and amusing. Again, if you haven’t tried this game out, I HIGHLY recommend it. Probably my best for 2021 so far.

Where Do you Spend your Hours?

With the exception of Dragon Cliff which is an idle game, I don’t think my list of hours surprises anyone. Wurm is in the lead by leaps and bounds, as it should be. ARK is quickly catching up to the remainder of the games, but I don’t see RimWorld being dethroned any time soon – unless Dwarf Fortress releases, then all bets are off.

So Many DLC (so little time)

It has been quite some time since I’ve played Cities: Skylines, and it showed when I went to see which DLC I was missing. Even with the 50% off sale that was going on, it would cost me over $100 to purchase the ones I was missing. A lot of those are cosmetic items, but I did pick up four DLC that I was missing that looked moderately interesting. They were the more expensive ones, as I was hoping they’d provide actual content. I didn’t get a lot of time to play, but I did re-familiarize myself with the basics. This game is one of my favourite city builders, and if for some reason you haven’t picked it up yet, you should give it a shot.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!

Spellcaster University (2)

I had some sort of unfortunate accident when I played this the first time – I could not save or exit the game. Thus I lost all of my progress. The second time I played I didn’t have this issue (thankfully). I managed to grasp a few more of the basics of the game. You’re given a small timer in the form of ‘evil’ that marches across the top of your UI. When it gets to the end, you flee your current school and set up elsewhere. In the meantime, you’re meant to stave off evil as long as possible, and get as many students through the school as you can. There are mini goals and achievements to get along the way, and so much cuteness. Each room you place has slots for items to be placed, either on the floor or walls. As you draw cards, you get these items. Cards cost a currency depending on what school of magic they belong to. You’re also responsible for talking to the locals and working on your faction with them.

This round I opted to place the school in the woods – there happens to be a troll that lives there, so I need to worry about him as well as the regular factors. If he wakes up apparently there will be hell to pay.

It’s a cute game, still in EA, but I’m glad I gave it a try. I’m looking forward to seeing how it progresses.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!


If you’re looking for a cute little relaxing puzzle game you should check out Dorfromantik. It’s relaxing, and I love everything about it.

Spellcaster University

I was gifted a few games for my birthday today – and one of those happens to be Spellcaster University, which I’ve had on my wish list for ages now. It’s a cute little card based game where you build a university, create schools of magic, work with locals, hire teachers, and acquire students. It’s cute, detailed, and still in early access. The tutorial is a bit rough around the edges and I didn’t feel like it properly explained the game – the UI is also a bit difficult to manage, but the game certainly has good bones so far.


Adventures continue in Divinity Original Sin II with my husband – we managed to escape Fort Joy, had a living ship sail us around (which reminded me VERY MUCH of Robin Hobbs books), and visited the underworld or some such before we were spat back out on a much larger map. We rescued a little baby chick from some void creatures, and then they killed the entire flock of chickens EXCEPT for this evil-ish one, so now I’m leading around a wee tiny void chicken.

Gotta say, this game is enjoyable for the stories, that’s for sure. We’re playing on story mode so there isn’t much chance that we’ll actually die from anything (though we did, once) and I’m comfortable with that. It’s a great way to spend an hour or two together in the evenings when the kids are asleep.

The Couple that Games Together

Me and my husband met back in EverQuest II many years ago. We lived long distance, so we gamed together. It’s what strengthened our relationship, and while neither of us has the time we used to, we still try really hard to get some game time in together.

These days we’re not playing MMOs together any more – but we’ve started playing Divinity Original Sin II – something I’ve had in my library for some time, but never really put any time towards. So far, it is fantastic. The story is interesting, and there are so many options and secrets and little hidden quirks to find out. We’ve just made our way past the very first chapter, and I can’t wait to see what else there is in store.

Caught in a Storm

I got caught out in a tsunami in Valheim and it was INTENSE. It’s not just because the raft is an awkward weird ship to try to sail, but the waves were gigantic and I kept thinking any moment I was going to get smashed against the nearby rocks. Thankfully, I managed to ‘park’ along the shore and get myself to safety without any further issues.


I have to thank Arislyn for this suggestion – today I picked up Wobbledogs from steam. It’s a quirky little game where you mix and match the genetics from various types of dogs, and they spawn eggs that you hatch into new dogs. They have a pretty short life span, and they.. explode.. into little mutant doggy pieces that you can er, order the other dogs to.. eat. Or you can just throw the pieces away. Sometimes the dogs have genetic mutations that require a bit of help because they can’t actually feed themselves. I had one who could only butt scoot around the floor instead of actually walking. You can pet them, praise them, and.. throw them.

If it wasn’t for the over the top cartoon nature of this game I might believe it’s more sinister than it comes across, especially since my kids were hanging around cooing over the animals – but it was a hilarious delight, and a good time waster. I do think the price is a bit over the top for this sort of game play, but if you pick it up on sale then it’s not too bad.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
