Breaking My Backlog #17 – Evoland

I had never heard of Evoland before last week. Oh, I had bought it a few years back. Or, I had unlocked it in a Humble Bundle or something to that effect. But, I had never actually heard of it. Which is unfortunate, because I think it’s one of the more original and unique games … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #17 – Evoland”

Breaking My Backlog #16 – Tiny Echo

Spoiler Alert: I spoil the end of Tiny Echo in this post. Just a heads up. I’ve mentioned it before, but one of my favorite parts about scouring my backlog for new games to try is actually getting a chance to try games I didn’t even realize I had. See, a lot of the games I … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #16 – Tiny Echo”

A Breaking My Backlog Addendum

So, it’s been about a year since I stopped buying games. I’ve mentioned this a few times, but that’s because I can’t help but mention it. After buying hundreds of games and not playing them, it blows my mind that I’ve gone so long just playing games on my backlog. I’ve averaged at least one … Continue reading “A Breaking My Backlog Addendum”

Breaking My Backlog #15 – Mini-Reviews

Over the past week, or so, I’ve played a number of games from my backlog that were either really short, or I just didn’t want to spend anymore time playing them. Unfortunately, that gives me very little material with which to write a full post. As such, I’ve decided to take a post to bang … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #15 – Mini-Reviews”

Breaking My Backlog #14 – The Untitled Goose Game (Halloween Special, Part 3 of 4)

Please Note: In this review, I spoil the ending of goose game. I know, by now, it’s pretty hard to spoil a game that has become a cultural phenomenon in the way that the goose game has, but here’s your warning: You are now warned. My journey to obtain the Untitled Goose Game was a … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #14 – The Untitled Goose Game (Halloween Special, Part 3 of 4)”

Breaking My Backlog #13 – Sanitarium (Halloween Special, Part 1 of 4)

Writing about a game like Sanitarium is always an interesting prospect. It’s an old game, having come out 20 years ago. It’s a genre (adventure) that has fallen out of vogue considerably in that time. And it treats its subject matter (disability and deformity) in extremely problematic ways. Honestly, it’s possible that it’s a game best … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #13 – Sanitarium (Halloween Special, Part 1 of 4)”

Breaking My Backlog #10 – Pumped BMX+ (Kind Of)

Breaking My Backlog is a semi-regular features on Troamm.com in which I attempt to complete my entire backlog before buying any new games. You can read more about the quest and see my backlog here. This game is a mess. It’s a half-baked Tony Hawk Pro-Skater clone, but with half the complexity and none of the … Continue reading “Breaking My Backlog #10 – Pumped BMX+ (Kind Of)”
