    Gosh, I'm not used to people picking up things like that! I hope you like it; either way, would be interested to hear your views. :-)

    A Good Snowman is Hard to Build is a lovely puzzler with a heart (but no plot to worry about), kind of based on Sokoban. It isn't exactly obscure, but I don't think it's at the "everyone owns it"...

    I probably won't buy anything this sale, partly because I just indulged myself in the Gog sale in a fit of retail therapy (I've been playing Stardew Valley, so that's a clear win although not...

    I'm following indie-friendly Games We Care About, but they don't seem to have added anything since September '14. Other than that, just RPS.

    I got as far as loading the Talos Principle and puttering around in what's probably it's tutorial (the first couple of object interactions). It's very pretty, and evokes Roman ruins well (i.e., it...

    I gave The Great Palermo (mentioned in last week's Free Games column) a whirl. It's fun and I would recommend it if you feel like a gentle point-and-click exploration of history and culture with...

    I just received a Steam key for Qasir al-Wasat. I seem to have bought it directly from the developer, but I think it's been bundled at least once, so look out for an email if you've bought it.

    Cheers, Alms. The minigames in To The Moon were harmless on my second attempt at the game - I must have been in a horrible mood the first time. Still, the game as a whole was something I...

    Re-played Samorost 1 - I'd forgotten how short it was, but still fun. Also trying to figure out the night puzzles in A Good Snowman is Hard to Build.

    I bought more than I normally do - a combination of having bought almost nothing on PC for ages and having income, plus having very specific windows of time in which I could make purchases. Then I...

    Cheers, Alms! The people I'm thinking of are generally puzzlers, so I'll give Plus a go. I just wish it were available on tablet (other than Windows) as there are people who'd like this (both of my...

    I "finished" Hexcells Plus and Infinite (haven't perfected some of the puzzles), so I went back to Hexcells. It's really nice to see how the concepts were developed, but at this stage I think Plus...

    Hexcells. Lots and lots of Hexcells. I played the original ages ago, but hadn't moved on to Plus and Infinite until now. I'm with my in-laws in the middle of nowhere, and playing Hexcells is a...

    Games are something I can talk about with people, so they're a way into socialising. They're also something I can do with my partner, and sometimes other people. When I was in uni, a bunch of us...

    I am having a great time with A Good Snowman is Hard to Build, and I'm very glad I dug it out of the backlog. If the idea of a very cute, well-made Sokoban-type puzzler is at all tempting to anyone...

    I'm pretty sure I remember buying Underrail in a bundle, so it's very likely that it was that one. I must jump through the hoops to install it - I remember it looking interesting at the time. Has...

    That's one of the very few games that's ever given me nightmares, even though I'd played very little of it. As a result, I'm not likely to go back to it, but I rate it highly.

    XKCD has an interactive thingy today - it's basically moving a character through scenery, so I'm not getting into the whole "game/not game" argument, but it's a pleasing time-waster.
