I think I played Shattered Pixel Dungeon in 2019. I progressed slowly but steadily.


My favorite was the archer.


It’s hard to put it away before you completed it. It took me 58 tries.


Shattered Pixel Dungeon is a fun Roguelike for Android.

From their FAQ:

Taking into account that not every Ecosia user clicks on an ad every time they search, we earn an average of 0.5 cents (Euro) per search.

Linux Mint → Arch because installing up-to date software is inconvenient in Linux Mint.


Octavio Pardo’s typeface is a fork of Georg Mayr-Duffner’s typeface with the addition of bold faces for the inclusion in Google Fonts. See Wikipedia.


Thanks for letting me know about OneShot, Pyre, and Night In The Woods. Those were great, yet I never heard about them before. I can recommend the puzzle game A Good Snowman Is Hard to Build. While not being as obscure as your recommendations, the game has a cool twist after the end. Some other popular games that I liked are Minit, They Bleed Pixels, and VVVVVV.


Thanks for writing such a detailed comment. These are great challenges!


You mentioning Twitter and Facebook confused me for a second, then I remembered how inconvenient it is to get screenshots off the Switch. I used an sd-card in the past which requires rebooting.


I share your concerns. A long critique on YouTube called Not Enough Zelda points out issues with the combat, the shrines, the repetitiveness. The longer you play, the fewer you die because of strong weapons/armor and that you can heal infinitely using cooked food. The exploration is where BotW shines. I still really enjoyed the four divine beasts.

Medium takes blogs and makes them centralized. Their website is also annoying: It used to display a pop-up every time you visited it. Apart from that it is just a standard bloated website that I cannot recommend visiting without uBlock Origin or uMatrix,


Liveoverflow made a hacking game. In this video he shares his first steps with Unity and goes more general into learning something new and the downsides of capitalism (lol)…
