SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech! First time I saw it I thought it was WAY too slow and wouldn't be fun, but after playing Slay the Spire and wanting something less run-based and more persistent: this was perfect. It helps that the difficulty curve was well thought out, the character designs for party members are excellent, and there's a lot to put on your wishlist as you progress in the game. Games stop being interesting to me fast if I stop wanting upgrades or can't find things to look forward to.
It's a fantastic romp I love it. Great little adventure clocking in at around 18 hours.
