Just replayed this recently. I have it for Saturn and PS2. I also have Christmas Nights, so comfy. I love the music and just the entire atmosphere of that era in gaming. Then again I grew up watching all of it come out and experienced the jump from 2D standard games to the beginning of 3D games. It was a magical time. It's hard for people who didn't experience that time to fully understand it.
Kiddo Dana was the greatest give humanity ever received.
Also, I haven't gotten the "key" yet, any tips?
What did you dislike about it?
The style and phrasing; it was like I was listening to the writer directly, not to the characters.
Thief fan missions make me feel comf often.
for more traditional comf feel, >>72
is indeed a nice choice, i would say also technobabylon, gemini rue, wadjet eye games in general
I guess I'll just have to play it again… I've combed through the game about 6 times now, and I know I'm just missing one or two dialogue interactions. No spoils though, I want to find it.
I finished it last week, I knew this was a VN but they could have add a little more gameplay, like a mini game for the cocktail phases. But the story, universe and characters are really great.
Nowadays I play Might & Magic : Clash of Heroes on a DS emulator, recommended if you enjoy puzzle games.
I just finished this one a month or so ago. Really good stuff.
I used to love playing Outrun 2 on the arcade machine they had at a cinema nearby, but they've since demolished it and I can't find it anywhere else anymore.
I hear the Xbox version of the game is pretty good. Not sure if it translates the arcade experience well. I've only ever played the Xbox version, and I love it.
I didn't know it was ever ported to consoles, I'll check it out, thanks
It did get a couple ports, though as far as console versions go Outrun 2006 is usually the more recognized one. It's basically a combo of Outrun 2 and the arcade-only SP tracks with a campaign mode of sorts and some other stuff, and most notably it got a PC port that more or less works out of the box. From what I heard, 2 still has some stuff 2006 doesn't so it's probably worth trying out both.
Point and click games are absolutely amazing and comfy.
Here are some of my favorites, Another World and The Longest Journey.
I used to play this and "Within a Deep Forest" all the time when I was in college. It was really comforting and relaxing, and I still have the soundtracks of these games to this day, and "Confiant" from Knytt Stories remains my favorite song.
Unfortunately I haven't played KS for a long time, so I can't immediately suggest some good levels. The level archive is a mess so it will take a while and a lot of trail and error to find the good stuff.
Speaking of games with level editors: Dustforce has become my go to quick chill game. Despite how difficult and demanding it is, the atmosphere of the game is always calm, and it's really pleasant to play and replay stages. Stressful stages like "Hideout" are disarmed by the atmosphere set by the music and quick restarting. It's really a nice game to have.
To me, the comfiest videogame would be Shenmue.
Jokes aside I really like Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite. It reminds me of playing when I would wrap up in a bed and play all day.
A while back I played Persona 5. For me that's probably the best made game I've ever seen. Everything about the atmosphere, sound design, environments and art direction is just right.
When I found myself with nothing to do for the last part of a day I just walked around shibuya. Night rain playing in the background as my character ambled down the street passing the crowds beneath an umbrella. It sounds dumb but I felt so content.
I should really get back to playing that, I've not touched it for so long. I think I'll try to get back into it when the next holiday hits.I think Katawa Shoujo is probably the game that has got the most comfy to me but that's 100% due to my circumstances while playing it
You should try older Persona games if you haven't yet. 3 and 4 are great too, 3 being my favourite.
I played P3P and I have got P3 but I haven't played it. P4 was pretty amazing and I didn't think 5 wpuld live up to it. All of the games had the same feeling of art direction fitting together perfectly.
Broken Reality is an a e s t h e t i c adventure game in a vaporwave-style 90s 3D internet, except it takes place in modern times. It's not a walking simulator, but a light metroidvania with puzzles, quests and secrets.
My favorite area in the game is essentially an explorable version of this album:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9L4q-0Pi4E
The game gets quite un-comfy in the last areas, and seems to eventually disappear up its own ass with an excessively cryptic ending, but it's otherwise enjoyable. It's available on Steam.
SaGa Frontier 2.
That's it, no description here. Just go and play it.
Final Fantasy is peak comfy, FFXI in particular. The atmosphere is amazung. Unfortunately it is only comfy when you aren't the one playing it because you will be
too wrapped up in the gameplay to relax.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvub3Uo22Pg&list=PL9jno1zkJehB38R6beGcnrMZGx5QIYrPd
That's dumb, get out.
In the current year (2019) older visual novels with "modern" settings are literaly a window to the past. Characters using flip phones or going to the library to look up stuff make me so nostalgic.
yume 2kki is my favourite game, period, and I think it's very comfy. It's an incredible escape from real life.
I wish that feeling was common in other games. I can't do visual novels and the only game I've played that had that feeling was Earthbound and to a lesser extent the Megaman Battle network games.
Just the little things like needing to find phones or having devices that looked like more than a black box or a shiny rectangle.
Thanks sushi roll, I think ill play some right now. It's pretty fun on a tablet if you can get it to run.
Trapping the ball in a single square was just cheap euphoria
Usually the games I go to for comfiness tend to be indies like Elona, Cave Story, Rainworld, or Minecraft. RPGMaker games like OFF and Yume Nikki with surreal or lonely environments tend to do it for me too, which is probably why Rainworld and Minecraft are also go-to games for me. Earthbound is also there and an outlier in comparison since it's not an indie but it's one of my favorite games of all time and I have a lot of good memories of playing it and beating it for the first time on a winter break.>>79>Knytt
God, this brings back memories, I spent so many nights and sick days in middle school playing through whatever freeware games I could find online and Knytt became a common game for me alongside Elona, Cave Story, Spelunky, and Within a Deep Forest.>>453
Oh man, I used to love these games, I fell off of them as I stopped playing mobile games but they were so incredibly charming to play and just look at, even their games for subjects I had no interest in like Pocket League were wonderful. I especially remember loving the Pokemon-esque game they released that took place on a desert island or the one where you run a small RPG town, thank you for reminding me of them.>>647
This game looks neat, I love these sorts of exploration heavy games, and the 90s internet theme is a nice touch, thank you for sharing!
Thanks for that. Just played through Knytt. Nice relaxing game. Certainly wouldn't go into it with a hard platformer mindset.
Where does one actually get it?
Googling "bury game" only turns up other stuff as far as I can see
