Leftist Videogames for 2022

quote [ World Worsening Simulators, i.e. Player Mainly Runs Around Destroying Stuff And Decreasing Biodiversity, Few To No Pettable Animals/Growable Plants/Huggable NPCs/etc:

Cattails, Mindustry, Minecraft, Terraria, Skyrim ]

Very interesting case for narrow game tastes and sensibilities. If you need some review opinions this year.

Thumb via Clawmarks blog.

Personally, it looks like Rollercoaster Tycoon might be a good idea to try again after I never finished that demo 20 years ago…

Oh, and there's also games with cats, if you're into that.

Cattails is fucking adorable and "Stardew, but a cat" is accurate.

Little Dragon Cafe is probably too simplistic to meet that person's needs.

If it wasn't for the cockfighting, Pokemon might be a good one too.

You have a problem with cocks?

Rollercoaster Tycoon has an excellent open-source engine now that adds a lot of nice functionality to the original engine.

I've been enjoying Timberborn a lot, even in early release. You play as intelligent Beavers rebuilding civilization in an environmentally post-apocalyptic world. I suppose you could argue that building dams to make reservoirs (a key mechanic) isn't exactly environmentally friendly, but compared to the environments you start with (wastelands frequently wracked with crippling droughts) it's hard to argue it's not an improvement.

Powerwash Simulator sounds (and is) kind of silly, but it is a powerfully Zen experience.

Spiritfarer. If, you know, you're down for a cozy caretaker game about coming to terms with mortality.

Keep forgetting I own a copy of Tonight We Riot. I should load that up to kill some of my isolation time.

Don't know about your experience, but I was a little underwhelmed here. Maybe the later game gets better.

hadn't even loaded it up yet. Not much of a gamer for stuff that isn't VR really. Just keep meaning to check it out since I got it with that Itch BLM bundle.

Some people made huge efforts in reviewing all these games; this one was pretty spot-on:

There was also some kind of search engine where you could get recommendations on each game, but I can't find the bookmark, no wait there's a superthread.

Thanks. I don't generally recommend anyone ever actually go to reddit, but there's a whole subreddit of people reviewing the stuff from the bundle. It's mostly dead now though.

Which is where I found this.
