The Nope List – September 2019

The monthly Nope List will chronicle the games that I tried out during a given month, but for whatever reason, they just didn’t click for me.


Weirdly, my entire Nope List this month was stuff I tried out – mostly stuff outside of my comfort zone – on Utomik.

UnWorded – I loved the concept, but I couldn’t wrap my brain around the puzzles. It might be something I go back to someday if I’m looking for a challenge, but it wasn’t a game to relax to.


Dry Drowning – This one was a little to reflective of the current U.S. governmental climate to make me okay with using up my escapism time on it. I didn’t even play long enough to get a real feel for the game play – the story made me nope out really early.


Devil’s Hunt – Another game that just wasn’t for me. I like a good hack & slash, but for me the joy is just in mindlessly beating things up. I couldn’t get past the first boss (y’know, the TUTORIAL BOSS) on easy. I gave it a second spin, and then the game crashed. Moving on.


And then there was that night where NOTHING was working for me.

Flipping Death was just a little heavy on the platforming (at least for me) going into the second chapter. If I go back, it’ll be with a controller and a whole lot of patience.

Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones looks like it is going to be fantastic, but I need to start it up on a night that I have the patience for a slow start and a whole lot of reading.

100% Hidden Objects 2 is fine, if you want to find some hidden objects. Cool for a time-waster, nothing I’m going to play start to finish.

Cubis Kingdoms is totally on me. I thought it was going to be 3D tile matching and it wasn’t. Was in and out in under 20 minutes.

I loved the humor of Healer’s Quest, and I acknowledge I wasn’t having that great of a night, but man, it felt hard, even on normal.


It might look like a lot, but this is pretty typical for me. Some games get banished forever to the Great Graveyard of Nope – but more often, it’s simply a case of being the wrong game for that moment.

I will almost definitely take another stab at both UnWorded and Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones. Considering that I purchased absolutely none of these games, I am totally okay with the idea of never revisiting any of the others.

  1. Huh, most of these games seem super interesting! But you said yourself that it wasn’t the games’ fault you lost interest.

    You are now responsible for the growth of my wish-list 🙂

    1. I will absolutely call out a boring broken game when I encounter one. These just … weren’t what I was looking for at the time. I will have to learn to live with the responsibility for adding to your wish-list. ❤

      1. Just remember: With great responsibility comes great power. Or something like that 🙂

        Anyway, “Pizza Time”!
