LudoNarraCon 2021: Favourite & Stand Out Games (Part 2)

LudoNarraCon may be over for this year, there are still plenty of games to check out that were showcased at the event. I’ve slowly been making my way through a number of the game demos from the event as well as adding a number of them to my Steam Wishlist.

This is the second part of my LudoNarraCon 2021 Favourite & Stand Out Games. There honestly was so many incredible games in this year’s line up that I wanted to check out and include in the two posts. Here are a further six that I enjoyed and that I’m planning on following and hopefully playing once they have been fully released.

If you haven’t read part one, you can find it here.

I was kindly sent a Steam Key by Fellow Traveller as part of the LudoNarraCon Press Pass. This allowed me to take a look at many of the game demos throughout the duration of the event. Thank you for the opportunity to take a look at so many amazing games.

No Longer Home

I don’t have the words to explain how this game demo made me feel other than I related to it on multiple levels. I really can’t explain it any more than that. This is another game that I’m going to be looking forward to picking up and fully exploring once it is released later this year.

Song of Farca

At first glance, I overlooked this game. It was only when I went back through the exhibitors that I took a closer look. It felt mysterious and intriguing. Cautiously exploring the demo making sure not to get caught out. It was definitely worth taking the time to check it out. I’m interested to see how the story unfolds more in the future.

Spiritfarer

I’ve been toying with picking Spiritfarer up for a while, but I was still unsure if I should or not. Even though the game itself tackles some very heavy topics the game’s demo felt oddly calming to play through, and I really enjoyed seeing just a snapshot of the game. I’m definitely considering picking it up to play through in full soon.

Teacup

Drinking tea and reading are a perfect combination but realizing you have run out of tea is the worst possible situation ever! I honestly could not leave Teacup searching for tea in the woods alone so jumped straight into the demo. I was honestly blown away by how beautiful and unique the demo was, and I quickly added the game onto my wishlist ahead of its release later this year.

Unpacking

Prior to LudoNarraCon, I played an earlier version of the Unpacking game demo and had so much fun piecing each and every item into its new home. With the opportunity to play the demo again I jumped straight back in to play through it again. I loved finding homes for everything and just unpacking. It was definitely less stressful than unpacking in real life!

What Comes After

Side scrolling, beautiful graphics and an interesting story. I was a little unsure about this game to start with but after reading a bit more into the game and playing the demo I’m glad that I took a chance and checked this game out. What Comes After is another game that I’m really looking forward to playing in full soon!

I’ll be totally honest, I wanted to sit down and talk about each of the games featured in LudoNarraCon 2021. I can only imagine how long the post would be if I did. I will admit that it was incredibly difficult to narrow down the games that stood out to me the most and were my favourites. There’s still a handful of games I need to go through over the next week or so but I think I’ve played the majority of the demos that were available for the event.

Let me know what some of your favourite games from LudoNarraCon were! You can also find more content from LudoNarraCon here.

  1. I too, was also pleasantly surprised by Teacup. The art style is beautiful and it seems like it could be quite a charming little game (once finished). I put it on my wishlist as one to watch as well 🙂
