Now they're stranded on an alien world, and they'll need to build, bash, and craft their way is they want to get home... as well as deal with the villain himself. A bizarre and fantastically funny indie action adventure with crossplatform play for desktop or Android and iOS that's worth every penny.

Ever had a night out with friends in nature, enjoying the sounds of the fire, staring into the night sky and willing to talk about anything since you're so bored and the last bits of good gossip were shared an hour ago? Free indie game Longest Night is exactly that as a group of friends turn towards the constellations to help pass the time with one another. While recounting the history from long ago of the very odd world they live in we may even learn a few things about their own past.

Legendary Mahjong

DoraIt's good to be bad in Amaranth Games' very funny casual RPG Aveyond 4: Shadow of the Mist, where you play the wicked Boyle Wolfbane, whose plans for world domination... don't go so well. Three years after being soundly defeated by a group of sniveling heroes, Boyle and his loyal storm wolf Fang are sullenly scraping by in a dingy little shack in the monster town of Wyrmwood, and looking down on all the other has-been retired villains. But while Boyle might consider himself above it all, when he gets roped into something threatening the world (and the safety of his beloved pooch), Boyle's got to roll up his sleeves and undertake some heroism, or as he calls it, the "H word"... whether he likes it or not. Aveyond 4: Shadow of the Mist is a wonderfully funny and cheeky indie RPG that's positively perfect for anyone looking for something to kick back with.

Castaway Paradise

DoraIn Stolen Couch Games' adventure island sim Castaway Paradise, available free with optional in-app purchases on Android and iOS or for a flat fee via Steam, your grungy, kelp-covered self washes ashore on an island full of animals who look and act like people. No, it's not Doctor Moreau, cease your screaming! It's a cute and casual little game designed to give you a place to kick back and get away from it all. And by "get away from it all", we of course mean "perform countless tasks and heavy lifting for animals who never ever ever help out ever". But we also mean "catch bugs, donate to museums, dig for shells, fish for... um... fish, decorate a mansion, farm crops, and more". That'll do!

Crashlands

DoraTake a sprinkle of Don't Starve and stir in with generous amounts of madcap science-fiction, oddball humour, and a whole lot of smashing, and you've got indie action adventure Crashlands Butterscotch Shenanigans, available for PC or Android and iOS, with cross-platform play when you own both desktop and mobile versions and sign up for a free online account to transfer saves. The game stars Flux Dabes, the cheeriest little space-faring delivery truck driver/barbarianess you ever did see, whose mission to deliver some packages goes awry when an evil giant head rips her spaceship apart for his own uses. Now Flux, together with her trusty robotic sidekick/supervisor/sass-maker JuiceBox, must survive on the planet while figuring out how to send a message to the Bureau of Shipping to get her packages delivered. With fantastic humour and character design, randomly generated terrain, and an entire alien world to craft, fight, tame, and eventually even mod your own stories in, Crashlands is a powerhouse of an adventure that's worth every second of your time.

mica-apoptosis

Lori.h[Mica: Apoptosis is still in development. As of this writing, the prologue and first three chapters are available, with more coming soon.]

[This game contains subject matter that may be upsetting to some individuals.]

There once was a Goddess who saved Man from the evil Things. She was kind and gracious and full of power. When the children of the Goddess show that they have control of her power is it seen as a blessing or a curse? Soyasushi Productions' Mica: Apoptosis is a free indie horror adventure game told from three different points of view of our main heroes. Each one seems so vastly different from the other yet it seems their lives are fated to intertwine. Princess Micaiah holds the power of the Goddess and must use it to keep her people safe from the Things that roam outside her castle walls. Lenine is her right-hand man and head servant in her household. Mika is a young girl also blessed with the Goddess' power, though in her mind and those around her it is a curse. With a corrupted church trying to gain control, foul zombie like beasts always trying to destroy human flesh, and mysteries surrounding every character, all three of them must find their inner strengths. But are these heroes we are watching be born or villains?

the-ceramic-uncertainty

Lori.hThis title is available in Pay What You Want format, including free. If you enjoy this game, please consider paying the developer what you think it's worth!

Of all the mysterious things that could suddenly appear in your apartment and be the cause of worry, a potted plant isn't that high up on the list. But that's because you've never seen a plant like this before. The Ceramic Uncertainty, a Crazy Knuckles Production, is an interactive fiction game about how you deal with such an anonymous gift. With loads of branches to the story, a simple choice can drastically change your narrative from a lighthearted adventure to a daring fight to stay alive with terror possibly around the corner. How it goes depends on which choices you select as you read. With over a 40,000 word count and 80 different endings, this Twine game will for sure show you there is a lot more to this little curious plant than just watering it daily.

Echoes of Aetheria

DoraIn Dancing Dragon Games' indie RPG Echoes of Aetheria, knight Lucian, the adopted son of a Duke, is caught in the middle of a bizarre conspiracy... specifically, kidnapping the royal bride-to-be at a wedding ceremony that was supposed to bring peace between two warring nations. Lucian's been branded a traitor and a terrorist, but with the help of clever mechanic Ingrid and the not-so-damsel-in-distress-y princess Soha herself, he might be able to prevent a plot to incite war... provided they can all clear their names and avoid getting assassinated in the process. Echoes of Aetheria is a gorgeously presented and professionally polished JRPG-style adventure with engaging combat and snappy writing that may have some familiar tropes, but seeks to elevate them rather than merely dress them up or call it "good enough".

redbook-discordia-tales

Lori.h Alice seems aptly named for a blonde little girl who finds herself in a strange wonderland. Except there is a lot less wonder and a lot more terror. But our brave little heroine is a lot more confident as she strives to find a way out of this horror story. Red Book: Discordia Tales, a remake of a game made three years ago, is a free indie game that has you solving puzzles and on your toes as everything here seems ready to kill Alice. Inspired by The Witch's House and Grimms' fairy tales, you can bet there are going to be a lot of jump scares, deaths, and gore for all those daring enough to open this book. The [arrow] keys are your source of movement, [Z] is interact, [X] is to cancel, and your inventory is found with [ESC]. Oh and [shift] is dash, which you'll soon find a very useful button to press if you wish to make it out alive.

longest-night

Lori.hThis title is available in Pay What You Want format, including free. If you enjoy this game, please consider paying the developer what you think it's worth!

Ever had a night out with friends in nature, enjoying the sounds of the fire, staring into the night sky and willing to talk about anything since you're so bored and the last bits of good gossip was shared an hour ago? Longest Night is exactly that as a group of friends turn towards the constellations to help pass the time with one another. While recounting the history from long ago of the very odd world they live in, we may even learn a few things about their own past. Finji's indie experimental game is more of a mix of super short stories with some semi-surrealism mixed in than a real game. Connect the stars on the patterns by using your mouse to click and drag a line between them, and then get a brief conversation with the characters below. Occasionally the character Mae will have a choice between responses as shown by arrows on their dialog, and then selected by clicking on the words you want her to speak. As a small glimpse into their full game, Night in the Woods, coming later in 2016, The Longest Night isn't there to have you achieve anything except for maybe some creativity shared and nostalgia of times past with close friends.

Reveal the Deep

DoraAs someone with a deep and abiding terror of large bodies of water and a healthy fear of the dark, playing Lazy Monday Games' indie horror puzzle platformer Reveal the Deep, also available on Android with iOS coming soon, was maybe not the best idea. You control a little deep sea diver, exploring a creaking, groaning, sunken hulk, with your only illumination coming from your diving helmet. If you're playing on Android, as I was, then you swipe left or right to start moving in that direction, tap anywhere to stop, and swipe down and up to crouch and jump, respectively. Double-tapping anywhere turns your light on and off, which is not just unnerving, but a key mechanic. See, some areas don't just look different with your light off... they are different, and swapping back and forth between the two can help you move forward. Deeper...

I Object?!

Dora"I Object?!" Nobody ever really expects to hear that at a wedding outside of cheesy rom-coms, but in this short free indie adventure from Indrah, MakioKuta (April Was a Fool), and Racheal, the Dark Lord's son has gone off to elope with his true love, and as an iron-fisted overlord, naturally this disrespect cannot stand. Sasha, Nikka, and Dimitri are sent to bring the lovesick lad back home, but they're, um... not exactly tactful. Or stealthy. Or... well, let's just say I'm sure they have other talents outside of crashing weddings. But there's a magical barrier keeping them from their task, so our intrepid trio will need to scour the castle for a means to bring it down. Use the [arrow] keys to move, the [spacebar] to interact, and [ESC] to open the menu where you can save the game. It's a gleefully silly, funny little adventure that definitely deserves your RSVP.

Gremlins, Inc.

SatoriPocketwatch getting slow? Household appliances grumbling at you in low tones? It may seem a little cramped to you and me, but we have it on good authority from Charlie Oscar that there actually are 'gremlins in the works': microscopic, urbane, amoral creatures infiltrating any machine or device they possibly can and then exploiting them to enact their own nefarious schemes in their tiny steampunk towns! If Terry Pratchett picked Monopoly and morally bankrupt tycoonism as his subject and made it a board and card game rather than a novel, the single and online multiplayer Gremlins, Inc. would be the result. In their miniature world of 'civilized' chicanery and subterfuge gremlins attempt to outdo each other for prestige, influence and lucre — typically spending more of their efforts pranking and sabotaging each others' agendas than accomplishing anything of their own. Bribing officials, rigging elections, attempting to build the occasional mechanical achievement for the prestige that brings with it, robbing each other blind and setting dirty traps to ensnare their competitors, the gremlin life is anything but simple and these little guys resemble political cartoon caricatures more than anything else. Despite its multiplayer aspects and its card game appearance, Gremlins, Inc. is a full, complete indie game without any in-app purchases whatsoever. Buy it the once, and it's yours for good.

the-captain

Lori.hAfter a space anomaly you, Captain Welmu for the Spacefleet, end up on the far side of the galaxy all alone with only your A.I unit to keep you company. On your way to returning home you run into a weak signal for help coming from a planet called Hox. Decided to appease your curiosity you go down to see if you can help, only, of course, to end up getting into your own predicament. Can you find a way to get off the planet or find who needs your help or maybe find a way to kill two birds with one stone? The Captain is just a small demo of the much larger planned game by SysiacGames. But if the game is anything like this demo, we'll all be anxiously awaiting the final product. This point-and-click adventure game feels like a teaser for something big and great by being something small, but great. With three different endings and an intro to the kind of gameplay and characters we can expect to see in the future project it still feels like a game on its own.

saturated

Lori.hWhen life starts feeling a little bland perhaps it's time to go and look for some color to put the jazz back into your step... while at the same time letting you see where you can step. Saturated by Elliott Mahler and George Li, the latter part of the team that brought us the adorable Undivided, is about a colorless little fellow trying to move on every level by using the balls of color scattered around the large nearly empty rooms. In this platform puzzler when you touch a color, the background changes to match, and you are no longer able to see the red platforms, but the blue and green platforms now can stand out brightly. When you need the red platforms, then touch one of the other color orbs, and the color platforms that match will be saturated into the background. There are a few different types of platforms... the moving ones, solid ones you have to jump on top of, and the thin ones you can jump up through. Find the right times to change the colors and jump your way to the gate to lead you to your unknown reward. The levels are long, but there are only four of them so there isn't a reason you couldn't go help get some color back into this hatted hero's life.

Break Chance Memento

Dora[Note: This game contains content that may be upsetting to some people. Please refer to the warnings on the official website to learn more if you are concerned.]

Every family has its problems, but Shuuki's has never been the same since the accidental death of his twin sister four years ago. The blame landed on Shuuki's older brother Natsume, who's now nowhere near as reliable as he used to be, though he tries his best to take care of Shuuki and their brother, Masaharu, even though none of them are as close as they used to be. Still, they all care for one another, even if none of them quite know how to express it or can get along for long enough to try. That all changes the day Shuuki discovers Natsume murdered, and a stranger offers him to a chance to fix everything... but nothing is ever that simple. In Cyanide Tea's gorgeous indie visual novel thriller Break Chance Memento, Shuuki finds himself not only desperately trying to save his family, but on the hunt for a time-skipping serial killer who can't be stopped by ordinary means. Using his new ability to travel through time using objects that connect to specific dates and people, Shuuki is certain he can fix everything... all he needs is enough time, and he has all the time in the world... right? A thrilling adventure with engaging characters and more than enough heart to go around makes Break Chance Memento one to catch.
