Potential New Evergreen Games

After talking yesterday about an evergreen game that has faded away for me I thought it would be appropriate to talk about some that may become new evergreen games.

I've found myself spending a bunch of time with both Crypt of the Necrodancer and Mini Metro lately.

Crypt of the Necrodancer is a rhythm based dungeon crawling roguelike music game.  I'm still not very good at it, but I keep coming back for more.  I've been using it to fill in spare time here and there between other games.

I feel like Crypt of the Necrodancer could go one of two ways.  I could get good at it by continually coming back to it or I could get frustrated that I'm not making enough progress and give up on the game for good.  If the first happens then this could become one of my future evergreen games.  Only time will tell.

Mini Metro, on the other hand, I'm fairly sure will stick with me for the long haul.  I love this game so much.  Organically drawing out metro train routes between stations should not be this fun.  It's ridiculous how good this game is.

My only complaint, and it's not really a complaint, is that it's only on PC at the moment.  If this game ever comes to iOS I'm going to be in trouble.  I already lose hours of time to this game on PC.  If it's on my phone, always within arms reach.... who knows how much time I'll put into it.  I so hope it happens.

Have you guys discovered any potential evergreen games lately?  I'm always looking for more!
