I'll watch it, at least the first episode :) If it doesn't trigger the headaches, I'll reconsider my purchase choices.

I DO really like the concept of the game.

FYI, Teleglitch is part of the current Humble Bundle for three more days.

As for the headaches: I found it a bit dizzying as well, but turning of the screen rotation helped a bunch.

The Curious Expedition

Don't know where to begin with that one. It's cute, fun, addictive and utterly, utterly unfair.

Whereas FTL lets you temper the RNG with quite a bit of skill, Curious Expedition just loooves to screw you over. It's a bit heavy on the unstable equilibrium, which means minor setbacks often snowball into epic fails. Which can get frustrating. And I could do without the mechanic that sets you against random AI opponents. The smug bastards never seem to die. I'd much rather prefer to play against the run-throughs of real players.

But the pixel art is just wonderful, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the game has a real knack for emergent storytelling. Like with FTL, I often don't care that I lost (again), because the way that led me there was just so unique and memorable.

And you can ride dinosaurs. So yeah.

Well, I've encountered one in my gigantic pile of dusty Steam games.

EDGE - A small platformer about flipping a cube onto its different faces as a form of movement. Seems simple, and it is, but gosh darn, some of the levels are just pure, molten nightmares.

Well, for me the kinda obvious answer would be Dark Souls trilogy. Idk 'bout you guys, but that thing is harsh as hell for sure :D
