February 1st has meant exactly one thing here at Chic Pixel: It’s the start of the dating sim Community Game-Along! Get in the romantic spirit for Valentine’s Day or just because romance games are awesome by playing a dating sim anytime this month to participate!
It’s time for a long overdue roundup of the November and December 2018 Community Game-Along themes! There were a lot of great games played over the two months, so read on if you’re looking for any new titles to add to your to-play list!
Happy new year! The 2019 Community Game-Along schedule is now in full swing! Thanks to the awesome suggestion from Nitro of the M Disk Playlist, the theme for January is Disney games. If you’re excited for the impending release of Kingdom Hearts III, playing a game based on a Disney movie or featuring Disney characters is a great way to get even more hyped!
We’re finally here… The end of 2018, and the final Community Game-Along theme of the year! For December, we’ll be celebrating Japanese indie and hobbyist games, aka doujin games. Doujin games often don’t get the spotlight as much as western indie games, so this is a great opportunity to try a game you might not play otherwise!
It’s nearly the end of November, but I’m still lamenting the end of the October horror game Community Game-Along! It’s always one of my favorite Game-Along themes, and I really enjoy seeing the huge range of scary or festive Halloween-y games people pick up to play.
In this post, I’ve rounded up some of the submissions people made using #HorrorGameOct on Twitter and Instagram! Read on to see what everyone got up to! You might just find a new game to add to your to-play list.
It is with a mournful werewolf howl that we bid adieu to the Horror Game Community Game-Along and dive headfirst into one of my favorite Community Game-Along themes of the year: visual novels! November is the only month I can be certain I’ll participate in regardless of how busy I am, because I’ve always got at least one visual novel I’m chipping away at. At first it was a little harder to have a broad range of quality titles available to recommend in English, but with every year there are more and more amazing visual novels to choose from!
