Generation ShipGeneration Ship is a sci-fi Unity adventure game developed by Shide for the Ludum Dare 30 "connected worlds" competition. Trapped in space with only a snarky AI, players must solve the cold equations and bring your crew to safety. While maybe a little heavy on the too snark, and maybe a little too light letting you know what things will kill you before they've done so, Generation Ship is a satisfying space puzzle to unravel.

A Dark RoomA Dark Room will run quietly by itself in a tab in your browser with only minimal interaction at first. There's just you, the dark, dwindling wood, and a fire to stoke. But what might that light attract? What could you build if you dared venture the cold quiet outdoors? With gameplay that will remind you of Candy Box! but a decidedly creepier, more intriguing bent to go with simulation and adventure, A Dark Room is well worth checking out.

GridlandFrom the creators of A Dark Room comes a match-3 puzzle game with a twist. Combine and collect resources to build, but what happens when the sun goes down is another matter.

Castaway 2: Isle of the TitansFans of the original Castaway will find much they like from the first game, plus many improvements. Castaway 2 isn't the deepest RPG around, but it's perfect for casual fans of the genre. The Isle of the Titans has a lot to do and a lot to see, and will keep casual RPG players well occupied. Just don't let it suck you in too much, or you might find that you suffer some light amnesia of your own.

Letter MonstersBuilding off the success of games like Triple Town, Threes!, and 2048, Letter Monsters puts a cute (and fuzzy) new face on combine-three grid games.

Escaping the PrisonThis week's room escape is... well, not an escape, per se, but an adventure disguised as an escape. How quick are you? How are you at decision making? Escaping the Prison by Puffballs United will help you find out. It will also help you find out how to fail. A lot.

WorldgateOctober 21, 1888. A scientific excavation discovers a perfectly spherical chamber fifty feet into the solid rock of the Wyoming mountains, filled with mysterious devices. Who made them? Are they safe? In any case, it's time to explore. Worldgate is a new point-and-click adventure game by William Buchanan, developer of the Free Will Cycle series. Improved navigation of his CHARM engine, and a cool sense of sci-fi atmosphere, make it another fine release from a developer on the rise.

Noob's RoomYou find yourself in a room from which you must escape. Sound familiar? Noob's Room is yet another take on the emerging "escape from the room" genre of point-and-click Flash games.

BP Ultimate Rally ChallengeThis next game offers some thrilling Shockwave 3D fun, four-wheeling under the sun in the hot Sahara Desert.

How Smart Are You?In Entertainment's Forge's new puzzle game, an lost civilization asks only one question: How Smart Are You? Quite similar to the earlier Mystery IQ Test, How Smart Are You? may not claim to accurately answer the titular question with its challenge but, hey, get a high score and you'll feel like quite the intelligent baked good indeed.

ZebulonCrafted in the style of classic 'choose your own adventure' games, Zebulon features the exploits of a somewhat wayward space crew. The story itself is relatively simple; you're the captain of a small ship that runs regular courier missions for Asmico, a delivery and service IT company. With you are your shipwright and communication officer; your shipright Hariett is a straight-laced, by-the-book stick in the mud while Reynolds, the communication officer, is unlikely to win 'Employee of the month' anytime soon. Your choices in your interactions with them, and certain events, will determine your outcome.

Find the Escape-Men 49: In a HutThere's nothing unfamiliar about the setup of Find the Escape-Men 49: In a Hut. Since this is a Find the Escape-Men game, you have to find 10 green men before you can pull off your great escape. However, it shouldn't take long to realize that something is a little... off... about our protagonist. I feel we could feature more work from No1Game, since what they do, they do well. Their puzzles are original and logical yet not too frustrating, there's no tear-your-hair-out pixel-hunting, and there's just the right amount of whimsy holding it all together.

Even though you don't have a job, the bills keep piling up, and you have insurance, a student loan, and a child to think of. You're down to your last thousand dollars... can you make it through the month? A sobering if a little ham-handed look at the lives of some people who aren't quite as lucky.

Learn 2 Fly: The Emperor Strikes BackSummer is often a season of sequels, a season of unimaginative rehashings of proven hits, hoping that the sweaty populace will be too befuddled to notice that the movie or game they're consuming is exactly the same as its predecessor only with all the charm and surprise sucked out. That's why Learn 2 Fly is as refreshing as a blast of south pole air.

I Saw Her Across the WorldCan a zombie game be cute and sweet? Absolutely! In this puzzle platformer from krangGAMES, you (a zombie) and your loved one (also a zombie) go on an adventure across a post-apocalyptic world filled with whimsy, humour, and even some welcome diversity.

Grow ValleyWhat do you do when you find yourself the owner of a big empty valley?

In this adorable follow-up to Grow Island from Eyezmaze, puzzle out the correct order of things to make your valley grow and thrive as big as possible.

Grow MazeThe dungeon you're trapped in was designed by Eyezmaze, which means escape depends on combining items in the proper way. But only the toppest-notch puzzle solvers have even a chance of escaping the Grow Maze. The three-dimensional navigation gets a little getting used to, but this is definitely another classic installment of a classic series.

Karoshi: Suicide SalarymanKaroshi is a platform/puzzle game where your goal is the exact opposite of most such entertainments: you have to die. Throw yourself onto spikes, zap yourself with electricity, smash yourself with a falling safe. It's like an extended version of the cathartic moment when you get finally get sick of Mario's empty-headed cheerleading and just hurl him off a cliff.

Teacher StoryTeacher Story is a gorgeous, fun, funny game with glimpses of serious cleverness. As the name suggests, you play a teacher who's trying to stuff his classes full of knowledge, but first needs to literally beat the stupidity out of them to get through. Though hampered by an aggressive and restrictive free-to-play model, genuinely strategic combat and a gorgeous presentation still make this one worth checking out.

Enough Plumbers 2The little blue dudes are back for more in this satirical, challenging puzzle platformer!

ColoraturaLynnea Glasser (formerly Dally) returns to the interactive fiction scene with Coloratura. Play as a displaced alien who only seeks to get away from the blind, apathetic humans and return to their place of bliss. Without the ability to directly manipulate objects, you can 'color' the humans moods to create situations beneficial to your goal. Whether dealing with them violently or more peacefully, you will get back to your resting place. Whatever it takes.

The Last Door: Chapter 3After bursting out of a coffin, you find yourself lost and disoriented in a strange city, and when night falls things get even stranger.

10 Gnomes in DubrovnikThe old, walled-in town of Dubrovnik is the hauntingly beautiful location of Mateusz Skutnik's latest seek-and-find the gnomes adventure. Follow a changing cursor to scan each scene, exploring narrow streets and tightly built houses, seeking out the elusive gnomes. It's near impossible to find all ten before the timer first expires, but this is a good thing: Skutnik's remarkable photography is too enchanting to spend a mere 10 minutes on. The serene beauty of Dubrovnik is wonderful to explore, and who knows what you may discover? Maybe even a troll.

You Must EscapeIt's dark. You're lost. You have to rely on sound to find the exit in this maze while avoiding the traps laid for you... but something else is using sound to find you. Created for the Ludum Dare "minimalist" theme, this simple game that tasks you with finding your way out before something finds you. Though slow and repetitive, the formidable atmosphere of tension the game creates with sound and simple lines alone is truly remarkable.

Spy 2Wanna do a bit of snooping around to see what an evil organisation is up to? Who doesn't! In this funny little sort-of-noire stealth game, you'll be a lean, mean sneaking machine, tiptoeing your way through short but thoroughly entertaining levels until you reach the heart of the nefarious mystery.

The Last Door: Chapter 2Continuing where the first chapter in this eerie point-and-click horror adventure left off, our hero finds himself plagued by disturbing dreams and driven to seek answers at a secluded church that seems to offer more secrets than sanctuary.

Kidnapped for LifeIn Kidnapped for Life, a short new escape game by Abroy, your ransom is a small but diverse smattering of puzzles such as kakuro, code-breaking and a jigsaw puzzle. You'll enjoy finding all the pieces so you can assemble your kidnapper's evil visage at the end. On the flip side, your abductor probably takes delight in tormenting you by surreptitiously concealing essential tools from your view. You can almost hear his hollow laughter as you scrutinize every secret recess and puzzle over the gathered clues. When you get right down to it, being held captive in a locked room, forced to decipher arcane clues lest you be stuck there forever, is quite akin to kidnapping, ain't it?

OodlegobsDo you hate cat videos and think nobody should be allowed to enjoy them? Of course not, you're not a sociopath. But some Scrooge in Nitrome's latest puzzle platformer does, and as a result, you're manning a virus made up of hundreds of chompy worms to take down Mew Tube and ensure nobody ever enjoys cat videos ever again.

Impulse (EdGE)Watch, learn, adapt... oh, and don't get blown up. Impulse is part physics puzzle, part arcade game, with obstacles modeled after Newton's Laws of Motion. Get the green ball to the portal by generating a pulse that moves anything around it... sounds simple, right? But when propulsion, gravity, positive and negative charges and more come into play, you'll find it's anything but.

Alice House No.2: The Pool of TearsThings are getting curiouser and curiouser as we continue our way through FunkyLand's version of the Alice in Wonderland story. This time around it's five dodoes you must find before you can escape-the-room. The room being a stately hallway with lots of doors but no apparent way out. Very strange. Alice may have cried a pool of tears to be stuck in such a pickle, but if you're resourceful, you'll soon find your way through.

King of Bees in Fantasy LandKing of Bees in Fantasy Land, a Twine adventure game by Brendan Patrick Hennesy, hails to an earlier time of gaming plotting; one where "all your base are belong to us". Thought there's not much action to speak of, this little choose-your-own-adventure tale of a Space Knight taking on the Evil King of Bees in the year 2888 is a quick, smart, piece of video game comedy.

PivotThere are 49 rooms, and 49 treasure chests, and for the most obvious reason in the world, you have to open them all. How can you get to them all? You're not super fast, you're not super strong, and you can't fly. But you can rotate the world around you, which is quite a useful power to have, especially in a platformer. Now where was that 48th chest again?

DefEndlessIt never ends. Literally! This tower defense game will keep going until you die, as you place and combine gems around the field to keep enemies from reaching your loot. But when the game is over, you can start again with a brand new map and keep all the upgrades you bought, for a surprisingly clever twist on the defense genre, albeit without a lot of depth.

LYNEPrepare to enter a zen-like trance as you play LYNE. In this minimalist puzzle game, you must connect all similar shapes without crossing your path. What starts out simple quickly becomes complex as you bust your brain to solve as many puzzles as you can.

Lucky Tower 2Von Wanst has shiny teeth, shiny hair, and an even shinier sword. You'd think that would be enough, but our dim-witted, greedy hero wants even more. What starts as a simple journey to escort the King's friend safely to the castle turns disastrous, but might prove an opportunity for even more adventure and treasure in this silly, quirky, and toothy action-adventure from Exotworking.

ir/rational ReduxWhen one wakes up in a featureless white room, apparently at the whims of a malevolent steam-punk computer, the first instinct is to escape. But... why? What's your argument? Can you justify your actions? Such is the question posed by ir/rational Redux, a puzzle adventure game by Tom Jubert, of Penumbra story-telling fame. Propositional logic has never felt so intense!

Eastward QuestGo West, my son. Wait... East, EAST! Lucas Molina present a simple yet simply addictive arcade game with RPG trappings as you control a brave hero speeding East through monsters and other pitfalls, earning experience and coin for upgrades along the way. Throw in some lovely pixel style and a great soundtrack, and you have the perfect casual action game to fill a little spare time.

Soap BubbleYou are a soap bubble in this action arcade game by Anders Gustafsson of Sweden. It seems that while playing with your friends, you discover a strange hole behind a bush that appears to go deep into the earth. Curious, you investigate to find that the hole is just large enough...

Every Day The Same DreamA strange and even unsettling little experimental game about every day in the life of a faceless, unnamed man, Every Day the Same Dream somehow manages to be oddly affecting despite its grim and dark presentation. Is there anything at all that can break him out of his cycle? It won't take you long to play, but it may stay with you well after you've shut down the browser.

Room ΓHere is a full scale escape-the-room adventure made (near) perfect by Kotorinosu's skillful design. Inexplicably locked inside these space age surroundings, with no narrative or changing cursor to guide you, you're left to your observational skills and ability to make connections between clues, using objects (repeatedly) to break through multiple locks until you are free. It's lengthy enough and challenging enough to hold you captive for most the afternoon, both in frustration and delight.

SeedsSay you're a little boy (but really you're a dinosaur) and in your roaring rampage of dinosaur-ness, you've stomped all the plants you can. Well, the king of the forest would like a word with you, and he wants you to replant everything you've crushed. Such is the premise of Seeds, a vibrantly colored game by funstorm that tweaks the launch genre in the most adorable way imaginable.

Monty's MoonFollow your dreams! And if your dreams mean you have to pay a monkey scientist in bananas to reach the moon and a hypothetical lady monkey, well, so be it! Though it could use some more variety, this launch game has style and polish to burn for a simple but fun experience.

With portals thrown into the mix, taking top rank and nabbing all the gems will be harder than ever, but you'll love every minute of it.

Dead Frontier: OutbreakAn unnamed cubicle slave grinds his way through another day at work, his biggest worry being whether or not someone left the coffee pot dry. That is until the scream comes.

Janie's SketchbookJanie is baffled as to why her boyfriend, Mike, told her he needed a break a month ago, and she doesn't understand why her friend Trina keeps telling her to calm down and try a new perspective. In this visual novel style story made to raise awareness for teen dating violence, you'll have to help Janie explore her memories and her life to come to some unpleasant but necessary revelations about her relationship... and herself.

Me and the Key 3The ever elusive key. Is it the ongoing quest to open more treasures or doors or find answers to life problems? Whatever it unlocks, this creatively simple point-and-click puzzle game from Bart Bonte is the key to an endless smile—or at least one that will last through 25 increasingly tricky and not-altogether-too-easy levels. With the help of some dapper penguins, figure out how to uncover the hidden key in each stage in order to move on to the next.

Matryoshka (New Edition)The appeal of this charming escape game from the always cleverly inventive Kotorinosu, like the Russian nesting dolls it's named after, is in its many layers and surprises held within. As an all new edition of a previously released browser game, here you'll encounter fun new puzzles and a completely revamped visual design, with one of the most intuitive UIs a mobile escape game could ever hope for.
