    Playing and enjoying Grow Home over the last few evenings. I tackled the tricky climb to the transporter at around 1000 metres tonight, which was remarkably nail-biting for a game where nothing...

    Bringing a car from the UK to Ireland is supposedly relatively straightforward; bringing a car into the UK from Ireland (or elsewhere) is generally considered not worth the hassle and expense in...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes it, although it sounds like you've made a lot more progress than I have (unsurprisingly - I find it very stressful once things start chasing you). It's a...

    If anyone hasn't read Richard Cobbett's Saturday Crapshoot on Vangers, then go read! I haven't played it, so I can't say whether it's an accurate description, but it's good fun.

    7 Grand Steps is really interesting. You control an individual in each generation of a dynasty, but you start out as peasants and it's up to you whether generations of the family ascend the social...

    Thanks for the tip, but it's only 6 when it's full price. I can afford that much as a gentle hint that I want more odd games. What's holding me back is backlog guilt and not wanting to buy it and...

    I realise that I'm straying away from the main topic of this thread, but you've reminded me of an orienteering sim that Tim Stone posted on once or twice, Catching Features (and Tim's article is...

    Terraria. I kept waiting until they'd made the inventory / crafting system less clunky so that I could go back to it, then they declared it done and moved on. I get that improving UI often takes...

    Just to say that if you didn't go yesterday and are still free and considering it, I went yesterday and had a great time, particularly with the pinball but also with trying random computer and home...

    I realise this was several pages ago and I may be too late, but go wander around in Limits and Demonstrations and see if you at least like the vibe? You won't completely "get" L&D without having...

    Finally played through Windosill, which I've had untouched for quite some time, so I have now played and completed a PC game for the first time in ages (go me!). I enjoyed it and would recommend it...

    I didn't see a "spits water at you" ride - I'm likely to go back with my other half as I neglected to bring him the first time, so I'll look out for it.

    I missed almost all of the arcade era and...

    NathanH, almost the only game I've played in your list is Crypt of the Necrodancer, and you shouldn't buy it because you will never put in the time required to be good at it - at least I'm sure I...

    Startopia comes to mind - any level not involving combat or building super-prisons. Botanicula and Rayman: Origins are good choices, too. I wish Sim Life were available on the likes of GOG; it'd...

    I never got very far in Drox, but I liked the demo well enough to buy the full version and enjoyed it for a few hours. It felt enjoyably weird, but this was years ago and I can't remember much other...

    Startopia has aged well and I think I would've enjoyed it at that age.
