Ingenious Scott!
This reminded me I need to get back and try Craft the World again. I haven’t messed with it since EA. I thought it was pretty slick back then, but not as engaging as Terarria. Anyone try it recently?


#3

I am in the same boat as you, Fozzle. I watched my wife play it for hours and hours and it looks like the sort of game I would really enjoy.

I haven’t had a chance to install and try it out yet, though.


#4

The old thread almost made it to the Chinese New Year!

Thanks for the new one Scott.

Awesome Scott :)

And i take back my potential recommendation for ‘Craft the World’ from the previous thread, it is not the game i thought it was!

Edit: i might swap it for The Long Dark, as a GOG game to watch/readup on/get :)


#6

Awesome, and some RPS thoughts here:


#7

Interesting!

I wonder how those minimum specs compare to a PS4, and if there is even anything to read in those?

(psst tylertoo, i hope these are not posts of frustration from you? GOG games often arrive after being on Steam (so getting their own threads maybe) or other places, so as this thread is for GOG games, there may be be some seeming duplication at times, but this is the GOG thread for when certain games get released on the platform…so just checking in quietly to make the point and hope you are not posting in frustration. If you are just trying to help by pointing myself and others to specific threads, then thanks for taking the time :) )


#10

This. I thought you were unaware of ongoing discussions about those games.


#11

ok cool :)

This one looks interesting; Lethis Path of Progress. I’d need to read up more about it, but ‘classic’ city builders are few and far between these days:


#12

I picked up Lethis during the debut sale on GOG. Haven’t put much time in yet but I love the aesthetic/art design and the game is supposed to be a spiritual successor to the Impression Games Studio city builders.

#13

Seems to me it wasn’t particularly well received when it debuted on Steam a while back. I’d be curious to see others’ impressions.


#14

I see what you did there.


#15

Does it use a walker mechanic, or are services based on radius?


#16

Lethis uses the Walker mechanic and you can place roadblocks to constrain the walkers or dictate their route on branching paths. Walkers do have a natural default range even if you don’t use roadblocks and walkers apply their “effects” to every building they walk past.

I hope that helps.

I had a nice chuckle at some coincidental timing this morning.

I purchased Paper Sorcerer in the weekly GOG sale and less than 5 minutes later GOG emails me to notify that Items on your wishlist are now on sale!:
