Scratching That Itch: Forever Lost: Episode 2

This is the one hundred twenty-third entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

Our next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality seems to truly be lost. It’s Forever Lost: Episode 2 by Glitch Games, and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Explore what awaits in front of you and learn all you can about what you left…

But, I am unable to download it. I just get the error message pictured above. Some quick research reveals that all three episodes of the Forever Lost series are included in the bundle, but none of them are downloadable right now, nor do they even have pages on itch.io. At the Glitch Games website, the series (which appears to consist of first-person adventure games with a horror theme) is shown as being sold via the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Amazon, suggesting that they are focused on mobile only. Perhaps they were pulled from sale at itch.io? Whatever the reason, Scratching That Itch must continue onwards, so I must regretfully skip this one.

That’s an unfortunate 123 down, and only 1618 to go!

Scratching That Itch: The Company

This is the one hundred twenty-second entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

A sleek helicopter sporting a corporate logo has just delivered another random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. It’s The Company, by Mega Corp, and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Corporate Survival Horror

The only way to make survival horror more horrifying is to make it corporate.

Scratching That Itch: A Day In The Woods

This is the one hundred twenty-first entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

Our next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality arrived by swapping positions with other games. It’s A Day In The Woods, by RetroEpic Software, and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Guide Red through the woods to help her find grandma’s house.

Ah yes, just a nice walk through the spooky woods to visit grandma. I’m certain there won’t be any ravenous wolves lying in wait.

Scratching That Itch: The NPC With A Thousand Faces

This is the one hundred twentieth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. The Bundle raised $8,149,829.66 split evenly between the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and Community Bail Fund, but don’t worry if you missed it. There are plenty of ways you can help support the vital cause of racial justice; try here for a start. Lastly, as always, you may click on images to view larger versions.

This next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality has nearly as many faces as there are things in the bundle. It’s The NPC With a Thousand Faces, by Firgof (AKA Forgotten Workshop), and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Ultra-fast NPC Generation from 15 years of DMing!

That’s a lot of jargon in one tagline. “NPC” stands for “Non-Player Character” and refers to characters that are not controlled by players, usually in role-playing games. “DM” is “Dungeon Master” (often called “Game Master” or “GM” instead) and refers to someone who facilitates a tabletop role-playing game for the other players, setting up scenarios and describing how the world and its inhabitants react to player actions. Therefore, before even reading it, I can conclude that The NPC With a Thousand Faces is a guide to help a DM/GM create characters for the players to interact with. But don’t worry, I did read it, and yes, that is what it is.

Scratching That Itch: Hero-ing Addict

This is the one hundred nineteenth entry in the Scratching That Itch series, wherein I randomly select and write about one of the 1741 games and game-related things included in the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality.

Our next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality is speeding around the corner and into the final straight. It’s Final Lap, by Nicolas “Gulix” Ronvel, and its tagline in the bundle reads:

Experience the conclusion of a racing year on the Circuit during the last race…

Honestly, an entire year of racing sounds a bit excessive to me.

Our next random selection from the itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality is smearing glitchy patterns everywhere. It’s Glitch Brushes: Maze & Organic Textures, by Dataerase, and its tagline in the bundle reads:

once again you can digitally paint with power of glitch!

If you are excited for a videogame about painting with glitches, I’m afraid I must disappoint you. This one is, like the last entry, a pack of assets rather than a game. This time, it’s a set of digital brushes for making digital art. With glitches.
