awareness is incredibly important.

In live streaming social anxiety can lessen the experience for some viewers, so these are some of the steps I've taken to help welcome people in.

I travelled back in time by a couple of decades tonight. Felt like it, anyway. Some absolute beauts on the playlist and thought if share with you.

@with_The_Butler I definitely prefer the survival horror feel of the first, but when in the mood for arcade dinos it DOES hit the spot 🦕

What do you think of Fabledom?

I really enjoyed our Thursday night Fabledom stream. While we're not at the final verdict stage yet, I've found this to be cute, cosy and comfortable.

Full video and written review with you Soon™

Have you hit up Crow Country yet? If you're a fan of 90s survival horror titles and the retro aesthetic, you definitely should have.

I swear The Man In The Black Hat finds a way to pull strings. While playing, chat said I should call one of the farmers Bill Door.

Later a witch came along and turned all my villagers into skeletons and now he is even more appropriate...

I think this might be the best game manual on my shelves at the moment. Do you miss manuals as much as me?

It's D&D night and I am, once again (surprise surprise) back at the RP Haven 🥰

Don't worry, I have washed the Dungeon Alchemist t-shirt since yesterday 😂

Did you ever get around to this one? I've dipped back again. Arrakis, Dune, Desert Planet, and the excellent John Rhys-Davies.

A lot of history with this title and the RTS genre and even back on PS1 it was a classic. The original Dune would be the template for C&C, from the same Westwood Studios 💕

@jens This is Dune for PS1, which just says Dune on the box but is actually Dune 2000

She was, and still is, incredible. One of the best. Such a simple game, but Vib Ribbon stole my heart.

@Snoeksen 24 years for me to realise! or whatever "today" is, anyway :D I thought she was just being cute! what's she saying??

In case you were wondering (and because Hooded Horse had the audacity to ask on Twitter) Llamedos village is growing well!

The view from Herwere's Hill just manages to get it all in. Three-ways Farm is doing well, the market is bustling, and we're looking to expand into Millfield!

With thanks to Hooded Horse I've been taking a look at Manor Lords' early access release. It's a work in progress but one you should DEFINITELY check out if you like a city builder and resource management.

Video and extended written review up now at https://www.pixelbandits.org/2024/05/manor-lords-early-access-review/

A reminder that our Tuesday night stream has moved to Thursdays. So we're not live tonight.

To make up for it, here's a picture of Micro-catdit asleep on a pokemon blanket (a ninetails and vulpix blanket, to be precise)

I've been looking forward to getting this for a few days. Really looking forward to the next Dungeon Alchemist update.

Rounded walls, rotating rooms, and rooms at different heights. It's getting close to having everything I want 🥰

This is the only bit of clickbait I have ever put out... but I do believe that it was for a good and worthy cause.

I've been doing some bloody fantastic recently. Do you have any old favourite that you'd love to see again?

Bonus points if you recognise all of these.
