I have a account that tries to retweet and follow and alike. This week is very important in the RL calender because it is the 7 Day RogueLike challenge , where hundreds of create genre/envelope pushing new takes on the traditional roguelike.

Showcasing much of what is out there and their development updates. Along with more established devs and their games.

Why is it that my wandering eye for playing is always unsettled & directionless unless I see someone else play something? Then it becomes ultra focussed and excited to play THAT specific game!

It's like I have to be encouraged by unrequieted participation in a game experience with someone else, even if I don't know or have to contact them.

It's just plain odd.

I'm an easily encouraged co-operative gamer who plays mostly solo using someone else's enthusiasm to fuel mine.
