Hihi! How’s it going guys? Yes, I do intend to start most of my blog posts that way… It’s how I start my youtube videos and even some of my twitch streams. Speaking of, if you don’t watch my twitch streams, you totally should. I’m having a ton of fun streaming a My Time at Portia play-through. But that’s only one of the games I’ve been playing a lot recently. So, since my mind has been on games a lot in recent days, I thought I’d tell you all about some of the games I’m playing.
As I already mentioned it, let’s start with My Time at Portia.
My Time at Portia is an amazing game. You play as a new builder in Portia, gathering, crafting, and helping out the community with your skills. The story takes place in a world that has already seen an apocalypse once, and is very wary of one happening again. There’s a lot of different opinions on technology from the olden times- some believe humans reached too far with it, others think it was unrelated and it would benefit our daily lives to have it again. That said, your opinion doesn’t really matter. You’re going to have to work with designs based on old technology as you help build Portia up as a city, to complete side quests, and even more.
This isn’t a review of the game, mind you. I’ll do one of those later, since it’ll take a lot more space if I do a review for every game here. If you’d like reviews on any of the games I mention or any you think I’d like, please let me know in the comments! (I promise you, even if it says the comment didn’t go through, it did!)
Another game I’ve been playing on my computer frequently is called Littlewood.
Littlewood is an interesting game with old style graphics. The story is that you are the hero that saved the world- but, now you have amnesia and are in charge of rebuilding the town you woke up in. There’s all sorts of quirky characters, and you can do all sorts of things: you can chop wood, quarry ores, catch bugs, fish, and even cook! There’s all sorts of interesting fruits and veggies to grow the further your levels get. You can even have livestock! The layout is completely up to you, including where cliffs are vs. rivers, and what houses are close to or far from each other. All in all, it’s a pretty fun game. It takes time to get used to, though.
I’ve restarted playing minecraft, but there’s not much to say about that, so let’s move on to some mobile games I’ve been enjoying, shall we? I’ll skip Pokemon Go for now, because while I have stuff to say about it, I don’t think there’s much to tell that people don’t already know.
So, let’s talk about Elnea Kingdom instead!
Elnea Kingdom is a game I’d consider a mix of simulation and RPG. You start off as a traveler who comes across the kingdom. Through quests, you become a citizen, and have a lot of things you can do! You can farm, fish, go into the dungeons scattered around the kingdom- you can even make friends and fall in love! I think the coolest part of the game, that I haven’t gotten to yet, is the ability to switch characters after you’ve had a child to play AS the child. Sometimes I find the controls a bit glitchy and difficult, but everything is pretty straight forward, and there’s all sorts of quests you can do and accomplishments you can complete. The characters are colorful- well, some of them are. But what I think is especially neat is your child can marry into the royal family potentially! You can literally try any profession, and you can do what you want at any time even when you get one. Sounds neat, right? I love it.
There are, of course, other games I play- but most of them I’m not playing as regularly as these ones. I play a lot of kairosoft games at random, and just recently got back into Fate: Grand Order on my mobile. I’ve been gaming way too much though lately. I’m not getting much writing done this way! So, I need to work on limiting myself more… But until I figure out how to do that, I’ll just play as I like and try to keep my writing moving in the downtime.
Oh! One other thing I want to discuss regarding playing… I’ve gotten back into roleplaying, at least to some extent! I found a pretty relaxed looking site to play on. I decided I’m not going to do plot specific sites for a while, but I wouldn’t mind finding another generalized site like the one I started using with a friend. I only have one story going on right now, but I’m really enjoying it and have high hopes I’ll find more people to play with as my time there moves further and further.
Well, that’s all I’ve really got to say today. Thank you for reading about my favorite games. Next, why don’t you tell me some of yours? What are you playing, or what games are there that you want to play? I’d love to hear all about them!
