The Longing-ist Playthrough: Day 20 – 20/01/22 – 349 Days, 8 Hours, 58 Minutes and 45 Seconds to go…

21 January, 2022 by

It’s hard to believe that in a play session that saw me start and end in the middle of nowhere, that I could have both a bitter disappointment and a huge vote of confidence. Almost all of my play time was spent walking around with Monty, but when we briefly stood still – oh boy.

All the way back there? Nah – maybe tomorrow…

The Longing-ist Playthrough: Day 19 – 19/01/22 – 351 Days, 15 Hours, 46 Minutes and 20 Seconds to go…

20 January, 2022 by

My time beneath the mountain was limited to a short stint on my lunch break on Day 19, so I was reluctant to do anything that I might get to enthralled in. I wasn’t looking to push anything along because it would be just my luck that something interesting would happen and I’d be stuck at work unable to play any more! Instead I decided to stock the cupboards a little and wander to check a few things out – it was brief but useful.

Well, pick it up then… it won’t bite

The Longing-ist Playthrough: Day 18 – 18/01/22 – 351 Days, 16 Hours, 26 Minutes and 19 Seconds to go…

19 January, 2022 by

After a rather uneventful Day 17, I sadly didn’t have much time to make Day 18 particularly fruitful either, though I did have an interesting thought that I put into motion. I had only the briefest of times to spend with Monty yesterday, so rather than try to cram anything especially exciting in, I used the time to get around the kingdom a little bit and lay a few foundations.

The Longing-ist Playthrough: Day 17 – 17/01/22 – 353 Days, 4 Hours, 39 Minutes and 26 Seconds to go…

18 January, 2022 by

Day 17 was a quiet day, relative to some of the exciting discoveries of Days 15 and 16, but I have no doubt that more intriguing times are just on the horizon. It might be the first day since I started playing The Longing when I can honestly say that I have really very little to report. Some of that is down to my choice of agenda, but equally, I think I’m getting to a point where I’m missing something that I need in order to progress the story.
