The Great Steam Roundup – Episode 2

Yup, I decided to do another. This time I decided to throw in only games that I would recommend, but I’m thinking if I do another that I might have to throw in games that I seriously would not recommend to anybody ever. All the same, let’s think positive!

Adventure Game of the Year – 1991

There were 13 games this year. This is a year where I start to see more and more that I’m familiar with, yet the top 3 are still fairly obvious. Hopefully it won’t become too hard restricting myself to just 3 a year, but…well, I mostly did that because of 1999, which depresses me, so I won’t talk about it anymore right now!

Atelier Annie – Alchemists of Sera Island

General Overview

A very odd entry in the already odd Atelier series by Gust, Atelier Annie concentrates on developing a resort with alchemy. Combat is far too simplistic, yet complicated and fairly uninspired. In fact, there are many things that Atelier Annie does wrong, though the one thing it does right will often keep you coming back: the sim aspect. It’s strange that only this one new concept helps keep things together, so it would be hard to recommend this for fans of the Atelier series.
