Brain Guzzlers from Beyond!
—October 6, 2015— When your boyfriend has his brain guzzled by an unspeakable creature from beyond the stars, what's a gal to do when the town won't take her seriously? That's up to you to decide in this snarky sci-fi horror text adventure from Steph Cherrywell!
—October 6, 2015— All you need to do in this elegant minimalistic game from FRVR is drag the nodes around to untangle the mess of lines in the starry sky so that none of them overlap. It should be easy, but as the shapes rapidly get more complex with piles of lines, it becomes anything but!
We Know the Devil
—October 4, 2015— Classic Magical Girl style tropes meet themes of modern religion in this indie visual novel, as a trio of kids at the Summer Scouts slog through bullies, boring campfire singalongs, bugs, and the fear that maybe who they really are deep inside is wrong... and everyone knows it. Surreal, scary, and close to home, We Know the Devil is about "being weird and queer and wrong and hoping against hope no one will find out when the actual, literal devil comes for you."
Alice House 2 No. 02: The Garden of Live Flowers
—October 4, 2015— Funkyland takes us on a garden maze tour and asks us to stop and smell the roses in their latest Alice in Wonderland themed escape, as you must find five items bearing the image of the red queen before you can leave. It's a flowery, fun time, without the hay fever!
- Serious Dave
—October 3, 2015— When a bunch of babies are bunny-napped to open an evil portal, our bearded hero springs into action in this simple but challenging platformer where an army of the undead needs to be dodged and blasted with split-second timing across different stages with different weapons.
N's Room Escape
—October 3, 2015— Your dear friend N has sent you a letter inviting you to come try out their newest room escape in this short but lovely game by Tesshi-e, and while not quite as elaborate as some of the developer's other games, a chunk of puzzles and beautiful design make it a welcome treat for fans.
—October 2, 2015— 7Days, a first-person horror adventure game developed by RevoLab, has a simple fear at its core: Waking up and not knowing where you are. The experience starts off slow and ends up being at least 95% atmosphere, leaving such things as plot, character development and, in some parts, coherence by the wayside. Those looking for that special surreal style of spooky, though, will find it a nice time waster.
The Mammoth: A Cave Painting
—October 2, 2015— It's just a few minutes long, but this lovely piece of interactive art from In Between Games made in three days for Ludum Dare tells a story of man versus nature that we've seen repeated over and over throughout natural history.
