Since my last post I played through

A Memoir Blue
High On Life
Planet Alpha
Beacon Pines
Coffee Talk

High On Life was great. I did enjoy Machinarium, Somerville, Beacon Pines and Coffee Talk as well. A Memoir Blue and Planet Alpha were meh.

I'm currently playing Trackmania - and that takes up a lot of my free time.
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

I finished Catherine. It's a puzzle game about a man's relationship with 2 women, Katherine and Catherine. It was made by the same company as the Persona games.

I liked the concept of the game, but I think several things could've been done better.

I didn't like how the game was constantly rushing me. I like to be able to take my time when I play puzzle games. I didn't like the random elements. Sometimes you get attacked in ways that seem impossible to avoid. I didn't like how "undo" was implemented.

I played on normal mode, so maybe I would've enjoyed it more on easy mode, but I don't think that would've completely fixed it.

I think the relationship with Catherine could've been developed better.
Even though I did the Catherine route, the protagonist dumps her, only to suddenly change his mind at the end. I think in the Catherine route, they should've spent more time on the protagonist falling in love with Catherine.
I think the cutscenes (animated by Studio 4°C) were my favorite part of the game.

Just finished Planet of Lana, a cinematic and very ghibliesque platformer that's a mix of Limbo/Inside and A Boy and his Blob. The puzzles are a bit on the easy side but I didn't mind, it's short, very charming with a cute story and protagonists and that's all I wanted for a relaxing weekend. Recommend.
