Shakes & Fidget Game

Ever since I was young, I’ve always enjoyed playing video games. As I was growing up and life became a bit busier, I didn’t have as much time to devote to playing games as I used to. But here and there, I found a browser game or a mobile game (or another mobile game) that kept me busy for a while. Nevertheless, there was one browser game I kinda always came back to – Shakes & Fidget.

Shakes & Fidget

This game has been around for quite a while, ever since 2009. It has its forum and wiki and it’s been localized in many languages. The community around this game is impressive and there are a lot of YouTubers covering this game. Over the course of 13 years (already!), it has received numerous updates and content expansion and it’s a perfect game for folks who don’t have time but still need their RPG-leveling boost now and then 🙋

Classes and Races

If you ever decide to give it a go, the first thing you’ll need to decide is which class you’d want to play. There are currently 8 classes in the game.

Each class offers a different play style but in the end, all classes are well-balanced. Besides these 8 classes, you can also choose among 8 different races:

Gameplay

Once you select your class, race, and you give your character a name, you enter the Shakes & Fidget game world. You don’t actively fight in the game, though. You go on quests, complete different missions, and level up your character. Your character automatically does all the fighting but it’s up to you how you prepare it for battle.

You can play the game for ~10 minutes per day and still make quite a nice progress. This is what I love about the game! Also, you can play it completely for free but the game does offer paid upgrades to help you speed up your progress.

Ever since I discovered this game many, many years ago, I’ve been playing it with different characters up until different stages of the game. The names of the items and the characters you encounter are just hilarious. There are characters from so many TV shows, movies, and games that you encounter in the Shakes & Fidget game and it puts a smile on my face every time I see a new one:

I’ve been playing the same character for over a year now, and I love the game content I’ve seen so far. Also, I’ve been playing it in German so that’s definitely helped me level up my German language skills a bit 🙂

I’m looking forward to the new updates the game developers will issue in the future. Keep up the great work, folks!  đź™Ź

P.S. One other reason why I love this game – it very nicely reflects one of my favorite quotes of all time:

Most people optimize for the day ahead. A few people optimize for 1-2 years ahead. Almost nobody optimizes for 3-4 years ahead (or longer).

The person who is willing to delay gratification longer than most reduces competition and gains a decisive advantage. Patience is power.

Take a Break and Relax Your Brain – Play a Game

I’ve always been a gamer. And I always will be! I remember sitting all night at my desktop and playing various games until I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore.

Today, it’s a bit different. There is so much to study (especially when it comes to WordPress and Customer Happiness subjects) and a lot of work to be done and I rarely have the opportunity to pull an all-nighter in front of the computer. However, it relaxes me to play a computer game from time to time and I wanted to share the top three games I ever played!

Diablo

 Diablo – a masterpiece from Blizzard Entertainment, an awesome game which will last forever (or until Diablo 4 comes out). Great storyline, lots of hack-and-slash-ing to be done and endless fun 🙂

Sacrifice

Sacrifice – one of the best games ever created. You take control of a banished wizard and you arrive into a new world which is controlled by 5 gods. Depending on which god you choose to serve, you gain different abilities – spells and summons. A completely unique game, still ahead of its time.

Rune

Rune – my favorite game of all times. I lost count of how many times I played it – after the 68th beating of the last boss, I stopped tracking! You play Ragnar, a Viking just promoted to guard the runestones of his village. The village gets attacked and your character dies. Odin brings you back to life so that you can stop Ragnarok (the end of the world).  Incredible game.

Let me know which games found their place on your list!
