30 before 30?

LisaPondering on LifeLeave a Comment

In just 13 days I’ll be hitting a milestone birthday – I’ll be leaving my twenties and beginning my early thirties. A few years ago as 28 and 29 hit and 30 became ever closer I really felt like it would be a ‘big deal’. I made a list of thirty things I wanted to do before my birthday. I even … Read More

LILMGOTW – Genital Jousting

LisaLILMGOTWLeave a Comment

This week – we take a look at a game that probably puts this blog firmly in the NSFW category – Genital Jousting.  If we overlook the penis aspect of this game for just a moment, it’s a lot of fun for Local Multiplayer. It works great on the one shared screen. The controls are simple and fun. The modes … Read More

LILMGOTW – Mount Your Friends

LisaLILMGOTWLeave a Comment

This week, it’s time to get intimate and mount your friends.  Somehow this game manages to be saner than its name. Rather than being some odd sex game, this is a perfectly sensible game where you try to reach the sky by climbing on your friends to form a human chain – all while balancing from a goat of course. Similar … Read More

LILMGOTW – Speedrunners

LisaLILMGOTWLeave a Comment

This week game is SpeedRunners.  I mostly like SpeedRunners because I’m good at it (well better than my friends!). Speedrunners is pretty basic, you are running around a looping course, and want to be in the lead – fall too far behind and you get eliminated. The game continues, with the window getting smaller and smaller until only one person … Read More

What. The. Hell. Is. This. Game. And. Why. Can’t. I. Stop. Playing. This week is the insanely bizarre Viscera Cleanup Detail. I think I got this game in a Humble Bundle or similar. I can’t even remember. It was just in my steam library one day and I decided to give it a go. It’s insane. The premise is that you … Read More

Another Wednesday, another LILMGOTW!  This week my spotlight is on Friendship Club. I randomly received Friendship Club on Twitter ages ago. I think it was some random giveaway or something – I’m not even sure, one day I just had a DM from someone with a steam code that turned out to be Friendship Club.    First impressions of this … Read More

Introducing Lisa’s Indie Local Multiplayer Game of the Week – LILMGOTW for short – catchy right!  This week it’s Niddhog!    Niddhog was one of the games that started my love of quirky indie games.

I was delighted to receive Big Little Lies as part of a wonderful gift from a brilliant Santa as part of The Reddit Gifts Book Exchange. I love taking part in these exchanges – I love the thrill of carefully finding something you think your randomly assigned giftee would like and hopefully seeing how much they enjoyed receiving that gift. … Read More
