June 2017 Community Game-Along: Puzzle Games

So, I haven't talked about games in… oof. Wow.

In a very long time.

But, I've come back to the gaming world—mostly! I've dusted off the olde Steam account, and I've nuzzled up with all of my beloved games. I haven't had a chance to play through my library in a really long time, but I've returned just in time for a fun event.

Anne Lee over at Chic Pixel has been orchestrating a "community game-along". You can view whole schedule here! It's a monthly affair, and of course, you don't have to join. But if you do, you get to read a lot of what other people are playing and/or what they love to play. If you haven't guessed already, June is #PuzzleGameMonth. And y'all.

I. love. puzzle games.

It's absolute in my top three and five genres. I may not seem like it, but I'm pretty adept at a puzzle games, specifically 2D, brain exercise puzzles. One such game that I want to talk about with you is LYNE.

REC·COMIC·DATIONS • Thicker Than Blood

How the hell have you been, GDR fam? Oh my good grief— it's been ages. I have tales of things that I have experienced and seen and fought and conquered. I have crossed rivers of broken wood, dilapidated stone beds, and empty Patreon halls— But instead of all that, we're going to talk about another comic that I've literally been a fan of for years. Are you ready? Because here we go.

Thicker Than Blood is an ongoing webcomic that takes place in the 17th century where demons and humans co-exist. The story revolves around a young man named Salvador, a royal soldier of The Five Crows. Of course, things are not quite as they may yet appear in the city of Pendulum.
