This War of MineIn this compelling and grim indie simulation, you control a group of survivors struggling to get by day to day in an increasingly dangerous city that's turned into a war zone. As the days pass, you're forced to push the limits of what you're comfortable with in order to survive, and rather than glorifying war for heroics, This War of Mine humanizes it for its people.

Five Nights at Freddy's 2Mere months after the release of the original beloved and terrifying game comes a bigger, meaner sequel, though it mostly feels like a more complete game than the first. With new animatronics, new mechanics, and a whole lot of jump scares and unsettling scenes, can you survive your new night shift?

Battle CatsKitty minions, go forth and fight! In Battle Cats from PONOS, you control legions of tall cats, chubby cats, flying cats, cows (which aren't cats), and plenty of other cute warriors whose sole purpose is to defend their base from legions of tiny stickmen, hippos, snakes and other bad guys. It's a familiar combat-oriented defense set-up we've seen before, but there's so much lovable style poured into this game, you can't help but to play until the wee hours of the morning, pitting cartoon cat against cartoon cat.

Find the Escape-Men Part 126: The Special PropertyThe apartment in this escape game's rent is suspiciously low, and there's a weird smell here too... so it's probably not a good sign your realtor has locked you inside! Experience a whole lot of weirdness (and a jump scare or two) in this very silly game from no1game.

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.

Grappling HookOn the list of things that are more useful in video games than they are in the real world, grappling hooks are certainly near the top. Acquiring a grappling hook in the real world is positively thrilling, until you start thinking of ways you can actually (and legally) use it. Fortunately, the aptly-titled Grappling Hook isn't grounded in reality. The puzzle platformer from SpeedRunGames is filled with 22 levels of quick-thinking grappling goodness that is sure to keep you zooming around for hours.

Dreaming MaryThere's something dark hiding inside this free indie adventure. On the surface, it's about a little girl who spends her dreams in a safe, magical place. But sometimes her dreams are cut short... and what kind of life is a life spent hiding anyway?

Sneaky SneakyJust as you escape with your best haul yet, a group of thugs stop you before you can spend your reward. Sneak around to recollect your loot and trick your enemies to meet their makers sooner than they would have liked and if you do so strategically, perhaps you'll end up with more than you stole in the first place. And isn't that every thief's dream?

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.

Icarus Proudbottom Teaches TypingAre you obsessed with typing to a somewhat unsettling extent?

OFFOne of the most surreal RPGs you'll ever encounter has finally been translated into English. Play as the mysterious companion to the even more enigmatic Batter, who has arrived to rid the world of spectres through violent purification. Packed with memorable characters, strange locations, and a seriously engrossing storyline that at times manages to be a bit unsettling too, it's one of the strangest, swankiest free titles around that won't be for everyone, but is definitely worth a look.

Arena Quest RPG (demo)Arena Quest RPG is a demo of an upcoming action RPG hybrid by gfactoriser. It puts all the ingredients of an RPG into a big pot,then boils it until only the delicious concentrated broth remains. It's got combat, it's got characters, it's got experience points and equipment and skills. But it all takes place on an overworld map that lets you move from one battle arena to the next, cutting out everything except fighting and party management.

The Room: EpilogueThe surreal, Myst-esque world of Fireproof Studios' The Room has just been expanded. In an update to the original, this Epilogue is an additional chapter full to the rafters of more crafty, dexterous puzzling that will have you over-thinking and lost in complete awe. If you have hesitated to try this marvelously unique adventure 'til now, here's another irresistible reason to enter The Room and leave the ordinary world behind.

Bit BattlesThe way to turn the tide of any war is always more dudes and explosives. I don't know who said that. Probably Sun Tzu. But this simple yet addictive defense game piles on the action with basic, engaging gameplay and a retro style to keep you occupied for a while.

Sweet DrmzzzBart Bonte brings us another fun point-and-click puzzle game in his signature style. Tap your way through a dreamscape of colorful worms in an interstellar adventure that will keep you on your toes.

The Island of Earthly DelightsWhen a storm lands an airship sailor on a strange island and his friend isn't there when he regains consciousness, finding a way home is going to be even more difficult than you might already think since the residents of this place are more than a little... weird. A short but beautifully surreal point-and-click adventure with a case of odd logic but tons of personality.

Kingdom of Liars 3Another short but gorgeous point-and-click adventure arrives from Hyptosis, as you struggle to maintain relations between your company and the prickly Templars after a Relic is discovered nearby. Adding to the already thick tension in the city and hot on the heels of your last adventure, it doesn't look like your life is showing any signs of slowing down... or getting any less dangerous.

KveendolnitzaHelp the charismatic and musically-talented Triton in his search for the legendary magic of the ancients in this surreal point-and-click adventure by Jacek Szleszyński. Very similar in concept to Samorost and Hapland, although unique in its artistic style, there's much here to explore, discover and delight in. Gazing at the fantastic art as enjoyable as the gameplay itself. Some will find Kveendolnitza their first time through, some may need to try again. Either way, the journey is the best part of the adventure!

Forever Lost: Episode 2"Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain." Creepy music? Concrete walls? Perspicacious quotes? Yes, your adventures in the asylum are nowhere near over in Glitch Games' latest adventure, Forever Lost: Episode 2. Last year's breakout point-and-click escape hit is back to continue the story, featuring more twists, chills, and lots of classic adventuring fun.

Fire away to earn as much grog as you can drink!

Terra CodaTerra Coda is an adventure game originally developed by Zillix for Ludum Dare 19, now re-released in a polished form, wherein you live and relive the life of a time-skipping alien organism trying to escape from disaster.

IbA trip to an art gallery takes an unsettling turn for nine year old Ib. When the lights go out, she suddenly finds herself alone, and something is begging her to journey deeper into the belly of the building. A free horror adventure game that delivers some fantastically freaky scenes and a ton of scares, both subtle and otherwise, for a memorable experience that's far more effective at times than its big budget peers.

Colour My DreamsWith its stylish black and white art and haunting music by Coin, Colour My Heart continues to blur the line between game and experience, between play and art. Using a less linear structure than the first two games allows the player to wander back and forth through the stark, cold landscapes. Although there is a conclusion this is more (much more) about the journey.

Dismantlement: MouseIt's Dismantling time yet again! Gam.ebb.jp is back with another dismantlement, and this time it's personal! Well, this time it's a mouse, at any rate.

Instead of filling boxes, now you're writing words!
