May marks eight years of podcasts for The Mommy Gamers. Can you believe it’s been that long?
In before January is completely over…whew! Carrie and Marcia are on track for at least one podcast a month for 2020. If you’ve ever questioned just how much content could possibly be packed into a short half hour show THIS is the podcast to listen to.
The ladies chat about Death Stranding, The Witcher 3, Animal Crossing New Horizons, Sea of Thieves and a ton of other games. TV chats run amok as well with Star Trek: Picard, The Good Place, whatever that new Dracula show is on Netflix, and Lego Masters.
To wrap up the show we chat goals for 2020, the new Byte app, and something about some Jersey guys meaty balls.

I don’t usually play point and click adventures but when I saw the artwork for Nordlicht I had to give it a go. It sounds like a lot of games I’ve fallen in love with over the years. Guess I just appreciate good art? Anyway, this little game has a good story to accompany the art and the mechanics are easy enough to make this game child-friendly.
As mentioned, Nordlicht is a point and click game where you figure out how to do things by exploring and dragging items either onto each other to craft or onto the scene to use. The gameplay is easy, though you might get a little stumped if you don’t think outside the box or try to do something in the wrong order/spot.
There are three parts to the story with what I’d call a little mini-game between where you have to sail the ship and keep it from getting destroyed by lightning, waves, or icebergs. Each of the three acts builds on the story of a Father and Daughter (and guinea pig) journey to visit mom. Several times in the story are little easter egg phrases that you may or may not notice. Plus there are lots of little nordic tidbits thrown in.
You’re darn tootin! I’m glad I picked Nordlicht up to review, despite it not being my favorite genre. I enjoyed seeing all the little cinematics and the art during the actual gameplay was beautiful. I would definitely play another one in this same style! Pick it up on Steam for a steal at only $5!
If you want to play through this with your child – and I totally condone doing so – you should be aware that where you’re going is mom’s grave. I didn’t want to put any spoilers in here but this is one of those things you want to be prepared to discuss if need be with your kiddos. There’s a very pretty surprise when you visit!
The Kawaii Box fairy visits our house once per month. She brings a big box of kawaii essentials delivered monthly from Tokyo. Boxes have around ten items such as kawaii squishies, Japanese candy, plushies and more! We opened up the April box and made a video so you can see what’s inside!
There are a lot of monthly box subscriptions out there. We chose Kawaii Box because it offered something a little different. It’s neat to get items from a different part of the world. Plus there’s usually lots of bunny and kitty items and that makes us all smile.
Thanks for watching the video. Make sure to comment, like and subscribe for more fun stuff from The Mommy Gamers!
