and_its_man: yes to slay the spire and Agony. Minit is not the loooooong hand on the clock, I’m afraid, but it’s very very close.
Grizzly: Yup to Call of Ctulhu, and Forza Horizon, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The Norse-like Ship isn’t Bad North or Total War. And it isn’t Dusk, I’m afraid, but your really close with your thinking on that one to another game.
