Whispering Willows

DoraElena Elkhorn's father is missing, and she knows it's got something to do with the strange, isolated mansion he was working at as a groundskeeper. She's been having strange dreams about him trapped inside, and unable to bear it any longer, she grabs the amulet he gave her and sets out to investigate herself. What she never expected was to find the tormented spirits haunting the grounds, or that her heritage was so... otherworldly. In Night Light Interactive's indie horror adventure Whispering Willows, also available for iOS and Android as well as Playstation 4, the XBOX One, and the Wii U, Elena discovers her ancestral amulet glows in the presence of spirits, and can be used to enhance her shamanic powers and leave her body. Scary? Sure, but she's going to need all the help she can get to find her father, especially since she's trapped on the mansion's grounds herself, and she'll need to uncover its unhappy history in the process. Use [WASD] or the [arrow] keys to move around, the [spacebar] to interact, and [E] to open or close your inventory. Pressing [Q] will allow Elena to exit her body, which means she can converse with spirits, slip through cracks (no, she can't just pass through whatever she wants), and possess and manipulate glowing objects. She can't venture too far from her body, however, and in her physical form Elena is vulnerable to certain dangers. Though short and potentially too easy for some, Whispering Willows is still a gorgeous piece of spooky storytelling to see you through an evening.

Luka & Lara: Robo Abduction

So you've been kidnapped by robot aliens. Hey, it happens to everyone now and again! The important thing is to figure a way out in Sunarsoft's cute point-and-click puzzle game Luka & Lara: Robo Abduction, where you need to find and click on things in the correct order to make a pathway for our little abductee to safely move across. You'll also eventually get an inventory to use items from. Some things you can click on are just red herrings and don't do anything, so try out everything to see what works, though be careful... some things can harm you! Despite that, Luka & Lara: Robo Abduction still isn't particularly difficult, or very long, so it winds up feeling aimed more at kids than anything else. Levels do get more complex, though sadly you never do get to play as Lara despite what you may have expected based on the title screen, and the ending feels rushed. Still, Luka & Lara: Robo Abduction is cute, silly, and snack-sized, exactly how you occasionally want your games to be, and hopefully future installments will be a bit beefier.

G-Switch 2

Back in 2010, we were introduced to the fast-paced, gravity-flipping world of G-Switch, an action-packed platformer where the tap of a key caused the gravity of your perpetually running hero to invert, allowing them to run along ceilings, dodge obstacles, and sail across chasms... if you were fast enough. Now Serius Games serves up even more with G-Switch 2, which keeps the familiar gameplay intact, with polished visuals and its local multiplayer bumped from six to eight. As before, your character never stops running, so just click or hit any key you want to cause them to flip up and down on the screen, running along floor or ceiling (whatever that may be for the direction the track is going), and trying to avoid obstacles or plummeting to your death on your way to the forcefield-like checkpoints. If you hit something, it's not the end of the world unless you get knocked offscreen, and even then you'll just reload at the last checkpoint until you get it right. Some points along the track will speed you up, while others will slow you down, and if you're playing in Endless Mode, everything is procedurally generated. If all this sounds familiar, it's because it isn't substantially different from the original game, though it feels like it plays a lot more smoothly. It's still a lot of fun, and its funky soundtrack makes grooving through endless or multiplayer a treat, so if you're looking for simple yet snappy, reflex-based, high-score gameplay on your desktop, G-Switch 2 is worth tying on your running shoes for.

Sage Solitaire

KimberlyImagine you are sitting in your living room, bored and with nothing but your iOS device to keep you your loneliness at bay. As you listlessly swipe through the app store, you stumble upon Sage Solitare, by Zach Gage, and think, "Why not? I'm already alone." Soon you'll be engrossed in a nice twist on solitaire games and be glad there's no one around you have to share it with. The object of the game is to clear the board of all cards while getting the highest score possible. But this is no ordinary solitaire game! Instead of one row of cards, there are three rows of three piles each. The number of cards in each pile decreases from top to bottom. Unlike traditional solitaire and a lot like poker, you have to make hands from these cards to clear the board. Hands are very similar to what you find in poker, with pairs, straights, and flushes, though not exactly the same. Hand types and their point values are listed when you tap the hand type button at the top of the screen. But of course there's a catch! You have to use cards from at least two of the three rows or the hand is invalid. That nice row of lucky sevens you were dealt isn't so lucky after all. When you can't make any more hands, it's game over.

Foggy Shore

Alexander Ocias' Loved remains one of the most intensely debated and discussed games on our site, so his new interactive short Foggy Shore, with music by Stefano Guzzetti, may make your interest perk up, though it won't take you more than a literal few minutes to play. In it, you control a young woman wandering down a lonely, misty beach, moving with [WASD] or the [arrow] keys, interacting with [E] with a prompt appears, and using the [spacebar] to jump. Just... wander. Follow the shoreline, interact with the objects you can find that have washed up, and take in the atmosphere... which, it must be said, is very well executed for a game that looks like it leaped off the original Playstation. The tone is somber, if not quite melancholy, with little touches like the footsteps our character leaves behind and the way the wind tugs at her hair making the world feel chilly but alive, and encourages the sort of reflection the game is going for. You might call it a "walking simulator" if not for the typically derisive tone that's given, so "interactive short", as the developer himself calls it, feels apt. The ending changes slightly based on the things you interact with, and how, and can be surprisingly insightful and emotional if you're in the right frame of mind for something like it. Contemplating the meaning the actions you take with the things you choose to interact with, and how they could be interpreted and be used to construct a narrative or meaning, is surprisingly clever. Foggy Shore is simple, yes, but also an elegant little experience whose untold story can change in your mind drastically depending on how it ends up, making it for a delightfully calm and introspective piece of interactive art.

Layers of Fear

DoraBloober Team's Layers of Fear, an indie horror adventure game currently available through Steam's Early Access, is not the sort of game to play alone, late at night, in the dark. Unless you like that sort of thing, then it totally is, you wonderful, like-minded sicko. In it, you play a bitter painter tormented by his failures, grimly bemoaning his fate and cursing life one stormy night. Initially the mood is somber and reflective as you explore, the house littered with broken bottles and scattered letters, but things begin to change. Subtly at first, but then with a greater sense of urgency and wrongness, and the more you look around, the more it becomes apparent that something happened here... but what? Use [WASD] to move around, holding left [shift] to move a little faster, and the mouse to interact. The game uses physics-based controls... click on a drawer with an icon to mark it as interactive, for instance, and push or pull the mouse away from yourself to slide it open and shut. If you find an item you can carry, like a key, it'll be used automatically when you click on the object that needs it. The farther you go into the house, the darker things get, and every door and new corner only gets you more and more lost. Layers of Fear is a macabre, beautiful horror game with finely crafted scares, atmosphere, and a disturbing story to match that focuses on the dangers of obsession, though its "on rails" experience and limited gameplay may not be for everyone.

Excavate!

DoraIn Script Welder's puzzle sim Excavate!, you've been hired by a university to lead excavations surrounding an old cemetery, but you've got 14 days and they want to see the best results you can get in that time. Pick your crew of four, taking into consideration their proficiency in skills that impact your work, such as Perception to inspect things or Strength for physical labour, and then set out to the dig site, where I presume your honorary pith helmet, khaki shorts, and knee-high white socks are waiting for you. While you'll start out with basic funding to purchase supplies like tools that give bonuses to actions such as inspecting or clearing dig sites, you'll be granted more funds daily as you catalogue and send back the things you find. The main game takes place on a map made up of various tiles, and each character can perform different actions daily depending on how many action points they have. While certain upgrades can help you figure out where to begin work, when you choose to inspect an area, it'll give you a Minesweeper-esque description of how many tiles away in either direction something interesting is hiding. Dig to find ruins, explore them, and then catalog what you discover to send it back to the university. Accomplish everything you can in a day before your workers run out of points, but don't forget to leave some so you can set someone to guard duty at night. I wonder when you unlock the button to ignore Brendan Fraser's dire warnings and get devoured by a swarm of scarab beetles..

Gatamari Escape 25

SonicLoverYou blacked out while hiking and woke up in a lab-slash-prison of some sort, and those men guarding the exit probably won't let you by peacefully. As the introductions of Gatamari escapes go, this isn't one of the more elaborate ones, but it certainly serves the purpose of setting up Gatamari Escape 25. The song and dance is a familiar one: click the direction arrows to move around, click on things to examine and interact with them, solve puzzles and crack codes, and hope you'll see the light of day at the end. If you get stuck, use the handy save feature and come back later. Oh, but don't worry: just because the dialogue and descriptions are in Japanese doesn't mean you'll need to learn the language to make any progress. Gatamari is good about that.

The Terrible Old Man

[8/31/15: The Terrible Old Man is now available to play online!]

Cloak and Dagger Games have served up some supremely creepy point-and-click adventures before, but now they're paying homage to one of the masters with spooky short The Terrible Old Man, also available as a free indie download, is an homage to H.P. Lovecraft's classic tale made in just 30 days. A group of shady characters are getting ready to leave town and take their gang elsewhere, when they hear about an old man living alone in town who's supposedly sitting on a fortune. They aren't put off by the strangeness surrounding the stories the townsfolk tell about him... all they know is he's frail, isolated, and apparently packing gold dubloons in a time where most people can't even scrape together the money for a drink or three. Are they about to bite off more trouble they can handle? Well, let's just say Lovecraft isn't known for stories where everything turns out sunny and all parties are merely involved in harmless misunderstandings. To play, just click to interact with something or someone, and right-click to merely look. Move your cursor way, way up to the top of the screen to have your inventory drop down, and click an item to pick it up so you can try to use it somewhere. You can also save your game from the inventory drop down, in case you need to take a break... you know, in case the ten minutes this game should take is too much.Everything about The Terrible Old Man's atmosphere drips unease and subtle wrongness, much like the work of the iconic writer it was adapted from, and the big reveal is executed cringingly creepily. Don't expect any real answers, as The Terrible Old Man sticks to the original's plot like glue, and most of the puzzles are a simple matter of talking to the only people available and then giving them or saying what they want. While it isn't particularly long or challenging, however, it's still a fine interactive adaptation that's a nice fit for an eerie evening when you want to give yourself the shivers without devoting too much time to it.

Mega Man Legacy Collection

TrickyIn the year of 20XX, a super compilation named the Mega Man Legacy Collection was released. CAPCOM and Digital Eclipse created the Mega Man Legacy Collection to compile the first six games of the Mega Man series in tribute to their favorite robot-son. Well, truthfully, one couldn't blame fans of the Rock Man for being a bit skeptical of this release. After the troubled development and even more troubled cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, very little has been seen in the way of full releases for the Blue Bomber. Sure there have been fun fan-games like Mega Man: Day In The Limelight 2, and intruiging semi-official curiosities like Street Fighter X Mega Man, but when it comes to celebrating the character's history, you'd have to look to a different company and a work much more focusing on smashing and brotherliness, rather than the platforming and Robot Masters that the series is known for. And, of course, as a casual gaming site, we would be bereft not to mention series co-creator Keiji Inafune and the production of his strangely familiar-seeming Mighty No 9. Still, as the series is legally brought to the PC for the first time, the Mega Man Legacy Collection doesn't feel like the mercenary retro-cash-grab it could have. It feels like a true attempt at preserving of gaming history (let alone some really fun games) and, for the most part, the mechanical-heart powering its production appears to be in the right place.

guilt

Lori.hWarning:This game deals with a theme that some may find triggering. Please look to my comment for more information.

Lost and alone in the dark woods, our heroine must find her way to sanctuary. With the strength to pull herself up onto the muddy cliffs and the will to descend into the dark caverns, finding a way out seems to be a feat feasible until she runs into mysterious goo-like monsters who are seeking her out to devour her very soul. GUILT by Ylzor is a chilling free indie horror game of stealth where you must find a way to pass the monsters without gaining their attention, or at least be quick enough to escape once you are spotted. The woods seem almost endless, and the caves so vast it will take all she has to keep moving even as she is being haunted. This dark tale will have you in goosebumps, as well as breaking your heart when the real story unfolds. While the difficulty is a tad frustrating and so is not for those with slow reflexes, GUILT is worth all the time you put into it and all the restarts you'll have to take. But in the end while you'll be happy the terror is over you'll find yourself wishing there was more.

sisyphusreborn

Lori.hWaking up you find yourself not only in a new land, but almost seemingly a new world. A world with very little in it. The few people there do only one thing... dig holes, refill them, and start again, all in the relentless heat of the desert sun. The only real answer you can receive from these nameless emotionless diggers is "We live to dig. And we dig to live.". Sisyphus Reborn is a free indie existential point-and-click adventure game that explores what it means to live. Heavy with atmosphere, Myshkin Entertainment's narrative driven game is short but powerful with its use of art, as well as the beautiful music that accompanies every scene. Simple to play, all you need is a mouse. Click to move or examine items that have a name when the cursor is over it, and right-click to examine closer and gain more detail. On occasion, you must re-examine or "re-speak" with people to gain vital clues to help you on your mission... that mission being, of course, to live. And to live is to dig.

Heatwave

SatoriNote: Please be warned that players with a sensitivity to flashing lights or flickering images may wish to avoid this game. Dai Araiguma's just your average teenage raccoon. He's studying mechanical engineering at NLA-U, learning Nipponese on the side, and enjoys anime, americanime, and a bit of massively multiplayer online gaming on his cyberdeck until the power in his tenement goes out during a particularly intense heatwave. Things being what they are in his low-rent California neighborhood in a cyberpunk future, all the doors are on a network and he'd better come up with a way to cool off and get out unless he wants to spend the next day or two living as a pan-fried sardine. Heatwave, a short and endearing point-and-click furry adventure from Scavenger, takes place in the same anthropomorphic future as his Death Wore Endless Feathers. With the aid of Mujina, an adorable holographically-projected AI personality, help Dai find a way to survive the heatwave, and maybe learn a thing or two about friendship, community and self-reliance in the process in this brief tale that's just as unique and touching as it is imaginative.
