‘Papers, Please!’ – A Very Stressful Game

Papers Please

During the summer steam sale, I looked into many indie title games available on Steam and are on sale. Papers, Please happens to be one of them.

Like many indie games, the gameplay is very unique. You are the inspector of a fictional country called Arstotzka, guarding one of the entrances of the East border of the country. A war against a neighbouring country has just ended but the peace is still very fragile. Your job is to inspect everyone who wants to enter the East border of the country. The means of inspection is by examining their personal related documents such as passports and ID cards, hence the title, Papers, Please.

Replaying To The Moon

I’ve been playing To The Moon again. It’s been a long time since I first played it. I think it was back in 2013. My friend was the one who introduced me to this game and I thank him for that.

Back then I wasn’t really into the narrative when it comes to games. I played games because of the gameplay, not because of the story. So when I played any video game, I skipped every cutscene (unless they can’t be skipped) and I ignored every dialogue. I couldn’t care less about what happened to the characters and the overall story. I just want to play the game.

Overcooked: Forcing You to Communicate

These past few weeks, I’ve been playing a really fun video game called ‘Overcooked’. It’s a local co-op game (which means you can play two players on one keyboard) where we are chefs and we serve food to the customers… It’s a pretty simple game, kinda like Diner Dash or Hotel Mania where you need to have super fast reflex in order to serve the crazy amount of customers you’re serving. But the standout of this particular game is its cooperative nature.

This game requires you to play 2 to 4 players. Well you can play alone but in the game, you still have to switch between 2 chefs, so yea, more than 1 player recommended. All players are given the same abilities. There is no cooperation if you’re given the exact same abilities, right? Well, the secret of its cooperative nature is actually in the level design.

Portal is a Very Creepy Game

This time it’s going to be a little bit different because I’m going to talk about a video game I recently played. I think this will be the only occasion where I’ll talk about video game so don’t worry, after this I’ll stick back to my anime format.

Now I’m not a gamer, obviously. I don’t play that much video games. But of course every now and then I’ll play some games to fill in my leisure time and I mostly play the more popular ones. You know, the normal first person shooter games like the Call of Duty and Crysis series, the Command and Conquer genre like the Red Alert series and Generals and sometimes a little bit of The Sims or City Skyline. I’m just a guy who sometimes play games… like normal people. But I do want to share my thoughts and experience of this one particular game that I really like called Portal.
