For almost six weeks, Star Trek: Fleet Command took over most of my free time. I had installed this mobile game after seeing a tweet and I thought: sure, that sounds fun, playing with ships, killing some enemies and generally enjoying all things Star Trek. Last week Thursday I placed a 1-day shield on my homebase (forgive the game speak) and I took a step back to consider my options. As with all commercial games, the incentives to purchase packages is very tempting.
“Welcome to my … house!” Old Man Stauf built a house and filled it with his toys. Six guests were invited one night, their screams the only noise… About 25 years ago, my sister and I rented a game from the public library: 7th Guest. I remember us sitting at my father’s desk in his study. We’d play this game on his laptop while in semi-darkness: not good for our young teenage minds.
