    I definitely have enjoyed FUGA, I intend to play the sequel
    I agree except for one thing. Forcing me to play through 2.5 times to get all achievements was crap. By the end I hated the game. Initial play was a great experience.
    I need to finish FUGA... but also Im kinda of ashamed of myself for using the Soul Cannon... Thats kinda hard to explain away laugh
    Oh dang! That's... That's harsh lol I swore I'd never use it and kept my promise to those kids!

    Beacon Pines was an awesome experience and that achievement list is almost nothing.

    Definitely recommend!

    I've played and beat beacon pines and I got all the achievements. I love that game to death and now I'm playing Fuga: melodies of steel(game I've had my eye on for awhile but never bought hoping for a sale instead its on gamepass, even better IMO)

    I'm loving Fuga and I think a lot more folks should go out and play it, its such fun and rewarding game.

    Thanks for updating this story.

    GP itself has gotten big enough that I can barely keep up with what's on it, until the announcement appears about what's leaving facepalm

    I completed Mind Scanners and really enjoyed it, but I don't think it would be everyone's cup of tea. Plus, achievements for multiple endings. I've considered doing a walkthrough for it because the criteria for some of the endings is really confusing. But I found the general gameplay loop really fun, like a type of wario-ware game in a kind of dystopian future.
    Really? I'm finding it kindof frustrating. Maybe it gets easier with time.

    I've played Papers Please and it was easier; you just had to remember specific rules & eyeball all the passports. But in Mind Scanners most of the minigames are so finicky. Even on Easy mode I keep messing up & spending 3 or 4 days on each patient. I think it's gonna be a slog for me on Normal & Hard modes.
