Gaming: The Long Dark – Wintermute Episode 1

One month ago the Story Mode for The Long Dark has been released. Finally I managed to finish the first of the two chapters, and it was worth the wait. I have played many ours in the Sandbox mode, but while the first days in story mode are like hand-holding kids, on the fifth day you are kicked into a […]

Gaming: The Long Dark

I normally don’t play survival games or walking simulators, but The Long Dark by Hinterland Games, which I purchased back then when it was still in early access on Steam, took me into new realms. You are tossed out into the Canadian wilderness with hardly anything, and your only aim is to survive, find shelter, food, craft tools, hunt for […]

Gaming: Refunct

A lovely little game, Refunct, just crossed my Steam installation. A simple platformer developed with much love. The game play consists of reviving a lost area by stepping on towers, finding buttons, and making more towers appear through this. The simple game play idea is enriched with wonderful lightening due to the movement of the sun. I really enjoyed the […]

Gaming: Firewatch

A nice little game, Firewatch, puts you into a fire watch tower in Wyoming, with only a walkie-talkie connecting him to his supervisor Delilah. A so called “first person mystery adventure” with very nice graphics and great atmosphere. Starting with your trip to the watch tower, the game sends the player into a series of “missions”, during which more and […]

Gaming: Quern – Undying Thoughts

I have been an addict of Myst like games since the very beginning. Solving mind boggling riddles by logical means (instead of weapons) was always my preferred gaming. And it seems 2016 had a great share of games fitting to my taste: Obduction, The Eyes of Ara, The Witness, and last but not least Quern – Undying Thoughts. Due to […]

Gaming: Deus Ex Go

Long flights and lazy afternoons relaxing from teaching, I tried out another game on my Android device, Deus Ex Go. It is a turn based game in the style of the Deus Ex series (long years ago I was beta tester for the Deus Ex version of LGP). A turn based game where you have to pass through a series […]

Gaming: The Room series

After having finished Monument Valley and some spin-offs, Google Play suggested me The Room series games (The Room, The Room II, Room III), classical puzzle games with a common theme – one needs to escape from some confinement. I have finished all the three games, game play was very nice and smooth on my phone (Nexus 6P). The graphics and […]

Gaming: Monument Valley

With a small baby invading your lifestyle, not much time for other activities is left over, especially for gaming. Most of the times even using my computer is a one-hand-action. In these times mobile games that can be played one-handed are greatly appreciated. And if it is one like Monument Valley, full of atmosphere and incredibly stimulating game play, then […]

Compared to the actual play time I needed for , namely about 12 hours, The Talos Principle challenged me much longer, about 36 hours.

Challenging riddle from The Talos Principle

When I recently complained that was too easy, I have to say, The Talos Principle is challenging. For a solution that, if known, takes only a few seconds, I often have to wring my brain about the logistics for long long time. Here a nice screenshot from one of the easier riddles, but with great effect. A great game, very […]

Gaming: Portal 2

It took me ages to finish , but Portal 2 was different – I moved through the games in high speed. Actually playing time was the same, but I played a bit more often then before 😉 More details below, but tl;dr: Nice extension of Portal, which feels a bit different. Graphics are great, but for my feeling the chambers […]
