Limbs Repair Station
—March 23, 2014— Duuuude. Have you ever really looked at your hands? Or dismantled them, added in a scanner, blowtorch and transmitter, and put them back together? That's just what you'll be doing for your clients in this Papers Please-inspired cyberpunk time management game by talented musician and game developer Rezoner of QbQbQb fame.
—March 23, 2014— The cold can do funny things to you. (Just ask anyone who's sick of the phrase "polar vortex.") So when you're stationed at a polar research station, things can get hairy. In Polar Escape, a new escape game from Just Pine Games, your coworkers have locked you in someone's room, and you have to get out so you can be rescued. Though the game is very short, it's quite intuitive and has a quirky sense of humor that leaves you wanting to see more from the developer.

—March 21, 2014— Taking over phones and browsers in just a few weeks, this fiendishly addictive puzzle game has just one goal... get to 2048 by swiping and combining numbered tiles until they add up. But it's harder than it seems, and players looking for simple, casual puzzling will quickly find themselves saying "just one more round", though it bears more than a passing resemblance to Threes!
—March 21, 2014— At first, all you have is a screwdriver. Tap away to remove the first screw and you're presented with a delicious sushi dinner which innocently hides another series of puzzles. Tapping and tilting your mobile device, find clues and decipher codes until your true dismantlement mission is revealed.
—March 21, 2014— Hack, slash, and pillage your way through the nether-realms in this simple yet addictive dungeon-crawling action RPG packed with treasure. All you have to do is take out a bunch of super powered mean demons... for one REALLY super powered mean demon. What could go wrong?

Idle God 3
—March 20, 2014— Explore the story of a god's eye view of the universe with the clicktoy Idle God 3. Upgrade and gather resources to further the storyline, which is fraught with uncomfortable choices to make. Though not whimsical like many of the idle games, it still manages to be compelling while tackling some of the grimmer aspects of godhood, and will keep you playing for days to come.
Tinysasters 2: Rise of the Nexus
—March 20, 2014— Get set to make tiny pixel civilizations thrive again! You'll not only be growing flourishing civilizations, you'll also be fending off wave upon wave of natural disasters that only seem to become more frequent the more progress you make — because creating a utopia wouldn't be nearly as much fun without the challenge of warding off a string of atrocities, now would it?
Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey

Doors 2: Dave's New Job
—March 19, 2014— When Dave's new construction co-workers strand him on the top floor of an unfinished building, he finds himself in familiar, physics-bending, puzzle-platforming territory. It's Doors 2: Dave's New Job by Arctic Arcade. A enjoyably mellow piece of gaming that most should be able to complete in one sitting.
Games Featured:Weekday Escape N° 15 —March 19, 2014— Your Weekday Escape bundle of three free escape games, presented in nonsensical haiku format. Because I can.
- • Find the Escape-Men 91: Figure Skating
- • Candy Rooms 5: Ice Blue Sweet
- • Escape from the Room of the Diamond
—March 18, 2014— Think Rush Hour mingled with Tetri but with shapes that do more than just slide, and you'll have the basic idea of what Shapist is like. More than just a sliding block puzzle game, drag, rotate, or shrink the blocks in order to uncover the grey block to continue. Don't worry about timers or scores, it's just you and the blocks.
—March 18, 2014— Why hurry? Stop and meditate a while. In this flawed but striking puzzle platformer, you play an impulsive young disciple who can't see the point in sitting around like his meditative master, but you'll need to do just that to make paths and avoid hazards.

—March 17, 2014— J-Tubeus is your ordinary hat-wearing, boombox-toting robot. He has no time for adventures... right up until he finds himself bot-napped! Solve puzzles to find your way out in this gorgeous and quirky point-and-click puzzle adventure.
Vehicles 3: Car Toons
—March 17, 2014— I feel the need... the need for speed... and smashing! In the latest installment of the popular Vehicles physics puzzle series, you'll need to use muscle (muscle cars, that is) and even some brain power to figure out how to clear the baddies from each stage.
—March 16, 2014— It's comforting to contemplate that everyone has rough days, even if you're royalty. When the queen's daughter is abducted by a gargoyle, it's up to none other than her majesty herself to set out on a huge quest in this colourful indie RPG from Aldorlea.
Alexia Crow: The Deal of the Gods

The clues point to an abandoned castle which was once the home of a noble family, but is now overrun with hideously huge rats. This means you'll have to deal with the Beastmaster, a power-hungry warlock looking for the key to immortality.
Keep An Eye
—March 15, 2014— So, don't ask too many questions, but someone needs an eye and we're going to get it to them. What do they need the eye for? That would be a question, wouldn't it? In Keep an Eye, a cute little physics puzzle by Dim Light and ArcadeHero, you get to manipulate a variety of cute little telekinetic creatures into doing your bidding. It's engaging, entertaining, difficult, and probably much nicer than throwing a real eye around.
Submachine 9: The Temple
—March 14, 2014— Mateusz Skutnik's beloved and celebrated Submachine series returns for a vengeance in this meaty point-and-click adventure. You awaken on top of a strange, otherworldly temple with only a hammer and some seemingly broken electronics. Finding a way out will take both an eye for detail and a clever mind to solve the inventive puzzles in this stunning games.
Games Featured:Link Dump Friday N° 362 —March 14, 2014— Fridays are sort of like the tease of the work week. You know what's coming, but it seems to take forever to get there, seconds not so much ticking by as they are inching with the slow unhurried pace of the shift of plate tectonics. So why not play some games? I mean, when you look up, it's still going to be hours earlier than it feels like it should, but hey... shiny graphics!
