Steam Wishlist Clean Up (4)

Since Steam summer sales are arriving soon, Tecsie decided to clean up their Steam wishlist a little bit by writing a Steam Wishlist Clean Up post which was inspired by Lia’s Down the TBR Hole book blogger meme.

I really liked this idea and asked Tecsie if I could take part too so here I am. Though with a slight difference, Tecsie managed to go through a lot more of her wishlist in one go. I already know that will not be the case for me. So you’ll likely see a few of these.

Sit back, enjoy, and browse some video games with me.

Starting Point: 170

The Steam Summer Sale is officially over and I didn’t buy any other games. I have complted 2 of the ones I bought so I’ll aim to do a summary / review post of them at some point.

So now we can return to cleaning out the wishlist some more.

Proteus and Botanicula were both added during my final year at university as I was doing a project on plants and for research I looked at their portrayal in different media. Of course I looked at video games and how differently they could be illustrated. Whilst doing this I came across these games and I added them to my wishlist.

Looking back on them now do I agree with my decision?

For Proteus no. Theres no achievements and it is just a walking simulator and I know myself, with no goal or aim I wont play it.

Botanicula however I am still somewhat interested in. Its a point and click adventure, the type of art is weird but some of the creature look cute too.

Ether is a first person adventure dealing with the fragility of the human mind and looks to focus around exploration. I’m gonna keep it and the design looks great too.

The synopsis and trailer for Master Reboot has got be hooked all over again… why don’t I have this already? “Imagine a world where death is no longer final, where precious memories are saved to enjoy forever, where your soul is immortal, welcome to the Soul Cloud”. Also its tagged as horror!

Dreamfall Chapters is definitely staying. It goes hand in hand with an earlier game I chose to keep because it came highly recommended. I believe this is the sequal or soemthing? Either way I’m keeping it as I don’t want to forget about it.

I nearly backed Sunless Sea when it was getting produced but didn’t because of lack of funds… and I’ve still not bought it! But I’m still as intrigued as ever. Its made by the same people who make the online and free Fallen London which I loved!

On inspection whilst Tri is a really nice art style it is very puzzle focused and knowing me I’ll spend most of the time on google and frustrated. At least I have it noted here should I ever want a puzzle game! Bye.

Dyscourse is an interactive choice-based narrative adventure game where you journey through a stylized world of choice and consequence. Choose wisely. Yes yes yes. I need this game.

Lasly we have Evoland and Pillars of Eternity. Whilst Evoland looks cute and has aspects that I’d like I just know I’ve kind of grown away from this type of RPG’s and its unlikely I’d put the time in.

I was so ready to say goodbye to Pillars too but *sigh*. I have friends who love it so much, y’know what, it can stay for them. One day when its on sale I’ll give it a try. Possibly.

Stats at the end of this post

Priority: 3 / 10
Keep: 4 / 10
Remove: 3 / 10
Steam Wishlist total: 169

We did it! I hope you like this post. Please let me know if you love any of these games or think you could be interested in any. I really enjoy doing these type of posts as I think it really shows non-gamers the wide choice of games out there because its not often I’ll play those that are big in the media.

  1. Dyscourse actually looks pretty fun and I’m pretty sure I’ve had Dreamfall Chapters on my wishlist for ages too. And awww keeping Pillars just for us :’D

  2. I love Botanicula! Although, I finished it in like two evenings so I wouldn’t pay a lot for it, but it was cute all the time it lasted and still makes me happy when I think of it. I guess it is time for a replay. I would call it a perfect game for a weekend when you just want something simple and fun and happy.
