Another year, another 12 themes for the Community Game-Along! This is my forth year hosting this event, which was started to help encourage people to play more varied games (or check something off that backlog!). All you need to do to participate is play a game that fits the theme and share your experiences on your social media, blog, or elsewhere! Each month there will be an announcement post with game suggestions and the official hashtag to use. If you like to plan ahead, here’s the full list and official hashtags for the year!
January – Dating sims #DatingSiMonth
February – Fashion games (suggested by @vanishingage) #FashionGameFeb
March – Monster Hunter-likes #MonMonth
