Thank you to everyone who weighed in with stories or sympathy about losing my Saturday morning routine. It felt really weird to wake up yesterday and… not play.
But that’s okay because I am replacing the game with a bunch of games. Instead of putting all of my eggs in a one-game basket, I’m spreading out my gaming energy in a few different places while I drink my coffee.
First and foremost, I’m playing Loot and Legends. I love Loot and Legends. I am particularly attached to my wizard, Bathilda. Sometimes the kids watch me play, and the ChickieNob will shriek, “protect Bathilda!” when her hit points drop.
In the same vein, when Land Fit for Heroes launches in a few days, I’m checking out that gamebook because it has a multi-player mode. I don’t totally get how multiple people will share a game, but I’m all for finding out.
Next, I am working my way through the IF Comp games. I plan to vote this year, so I want to play as many games as possible before the November 15th deadline. I’m also playing Scroll Thief. I have a huge backlog of interactive fiction to get through.
I am playing the Sherlock game (though I wish I could reset it because I botched the first round), Solitaire, and all of the old Activision and Atari games in the app.
So I have stuff to play. It’s different, but it’s good.
What games are you playing these days, online or off?
