Weekend Download

JohnBIndie game creators are apparently trying to make us go mad. Evidence pointing to this can be found in a number of horror/surreal games rolling onto the internet on a weekly basis, twisting our reality so we're never really sure what we're playing. Was this thing fun, or did I just dream it?

Mystery ChannelMystery Channel (Windows, free) - A creepy collection of mini-games presented in the form of a late night surf through horror shows. We're not saying it's like watching Tales from some sort of Crypt, but we'll hint at it. Each section on the mystery channel is a game, and each game is a bit off the wall. Pajama Party RIP, for example, places you, the victims, in a room with a killer running around getting all stabby. It's two parts creepy and one part maddening, but just the right kind of parody to make it all work.

HexcellsHexcells (Win/Mac/Linux) - Described as an ambient logic puzzle game, Hexcells is a bit like Minesweeper played on a hex grid. Click and clear the orange spaces to eventually reveal the pattern hiding underneath. Numbers indicate how many adjacent pieces are part of the pattern, just like in Minesweeper. There are only 30 puzzles to work through, so the replay value is a bit low. So is the price, though, making it worth a few spacebucks for a pleasing puzzle game in the afternoon.

BraindeadBraindead (Windows, free) - Surreal RPGs are a thing now that titles like Middens proved to be a hit. Braindead tells the story of Dan, family man with schizophrenia who happens to be the creator of the universe he's living in. Wander through the creepy wilderness as you battle enemies straight out of your "I ate a bad taco at two in the morning"-induced dreams, then see if you can figure out where your family is through the maze of cyclops stick figures and floating mouths. Lots of mind-twisting events and dialogue, great for an evening when you don't feel like connecting to reality.
