Games for Ladies

08:00

I wasn't much of a gaming girl when I met my husband, actually I wasn't much of a tech girl either but six years of being exposed by your nerd-physicist-partner-man will change you. You start understanding things better and you start enjoying all things tech and gaming. With that being said, I still don't have a taste for most of the common "guy games" which made me think of doing a post on some games which my fellow ladies might enjoy.

"Aurora, a young girl from 1895 Austria, awakens on the lost fairytale continent of Lemuria. To return home she must fight against the dark creatures of the Queen of the Night, who have stolen the sun, the moon and the stars. At stake is not only Lemuria, but Aurora’s true destiny." Source

The scenes, story line and narration throughout the entire game is simply magical. I find that the firefly character, Igniculus, adds humor and an extra aspect to controlling Aurora and using Iggy to blind enemies and help as much a little firefly can during battles. This game is perfect for those ladies looking for a fairytale experience. Available for PC, Xbox, Play station and Wii U.

Lets be honest ladies, we like to control things in life and this game allows you to do just that. "In this city-building strategy game, you control a group of exiled travelers who decide to restart their lives in a new land. They have only the clothes on their backs and a cart filled with supplies from their homeland. The townspeople of Banished are your primary resource." Source

I had so much fun with this game. The game play is so smooth and you really have great controls over what you are looking at. Keeping all my people fed and housed was quite a challenge to get right and even once you do have everything going smoothly, one big batch of nomads can send things in a downward spiral. Definitely worth it if you are looking for a challenge but still have a fun gaming experience. Available for Microsoft Windows only.

This game is just as fun as it sounds and all the comments out there on the gaming soundtrack is true, really amazing. I have not progressed in the game as much as I would have liked to because it is quite a challenge. I would not recommend playing this if you have a tired mind because you have to really concentrate and focus to wiggle your way through these wobbly scenes and levels. Available for Windows and Mac users.

Prison Architect

Last but not least we have my current fave, Prison Architect, which is a private prison construction and management simulation game by the British game developer Introversion Software. This game has been in Alpha for the past three years which pretty much means that they have been developing this for a really really long time getting all the bugs fixed to give us the best playing experience. Good news; The wait is over! The full game (V1) will officially be released on the 6th of October 2015. Pre-order on Steam here.

You make the rules and the prisoners have to follow, but keep in mind that prisoners have needs and demands. If you are too cruel or needs are not met, you will start to have outbreaks of prison riots, gang members will overpower your guards and they will literally break the prison down. Even when you think your prison is under control, a fire can break out in your kitchen or even worse, your prisoners have dug a tunnel underground and have escaped. I highly recommend this game to everyone. Available for Windows and Mac users.

All of these games are available on Steam. I hope you get to play some of these games because I really have enjoyed my time with them and that is saying a lot as I am not a complete girl-nerd. Leave some comments below if there is a game that I should be playing and I will definitely check them out! I will also tweet these games and their developers' accounts so be sure to follow me on Twitter.
