I dug Inmost, admittedly it is carried by some wonderful sprite work but I found it an interesting thing to explore. It gets a bit narrative-heavy by the time it reaches its conclusion but I legit enjoyed my time with it and am glad to see someone else giving it a twirl.

EDIT: Filament was possibly my pleasant surprise game of last year (well it came out before then, I got to it last year), hope you enjoy it as well and don't go too crazy looking for patterns and such hiding in plain sight >_>

EDIT #2: FWIW I'm pretty sure the other two people I know who tried Filament ended up resorting to a guide at a certain point as well, I think many ended up digging the mechanic but the game does end up asking a lot from a player.

And yeah, Hollow Knight seems pretty swell so far even if it does make me use up an equipment slot just to see where on the map I'm at :P

EDIT #3: Someone else I knew spoke well of MO:Astray as well, so looking forward to getting around to it at some point.

BTW I'm not like doing some optional starting weapon challenge in Hollow Knight, I legit can't find where the upgrade bug is and refuse to google it. Apparently it isn't exactly hidden so god knows how I keep missing it.

Someone I knew thought Lightning Returns was the best of the XIII series, I take it you disagree on that front

N++ is swell but I recommend setting an endpoint for yourself (I know they updated the stage select at some point, believe I picked "complete intro and N++ sections" and considering everything else a bonus mode to check out but feel no obligation towards. I think if one wanted to go for true completion it'd require beating thousands of stages and I mean... that's crazy talk IMO. Don't be confused I dug the heck out of it, but I don't think I like any game enough to want 4k stages worth of it.

EDIT: I've watched you stalled out in N++ right near the end of the N++ section for a bit now and sorta went "yeah... I can see that." Not sure if you mean final 15 stages in terms of screens or... episodes (I forget exactly how it is broken down) but I distinctly recall the amount of time and effort required shooting up as I approached the end of that section. Good luck if you stick with it!

Glad to see someone playing Vision Soft Reset, I thought it was a particularly clever twist on the normal metroidvania formula. Graphics aren't the best but I really like how it handled the time loop formula, bunch of cool little things were done with it IMO.

BTW very random but I noticed that last time I commented on your page I mentioned the game Rite. FWIW by the late game it requires an absurd amount of precision to pass the stages, infinite lives but I got like one stage into the bonus world and had to quit to save my sanity.

EDIT: Glad to hear you enjoyed your time with Vision Soft Reset! I stumbled upon the game when I spent that year or so playing a ton of random games from that one massive indie game bundle and it may have been my favorite game I discovered while doing that. The dev behind it has another game in development now names Moonlight Pulse, it's too early to tell much beyond that they've gotten slightly better at art and seemingly won't have the same time gimmick but I'm definitely gonna be keeping my eyes on it.
