  • The Talos PrincipleThe Talos Principle —December 15, 2014— Gorgeous, challenging, and contemplative, this first-person indie philosophical puzzle adventure stars you as an unnamed robot who awakens, seemingly at the whim of a voice from the sky, who tells you to seek out sigils to prove your worth... but never climb the great tower. With a complex and engaging story and puzzles that will keep you wrapped up for hours and hours, this is one stunner that should not be missed.
  • Impressions: I Am Bread (Early Access)Impressions: I Am Bread (Early Access) —December 7, 2014— One lonely little slice of bread has a dream... to be perfectly toasted. Too bad getting there is way, way harder than it sounds in this ridiculous physics game from the creators of Surgeon Simulator 2013. Currently in Early Access, I Am Bread can be frustrating, but also charming, hilarious, and a lot of fun if you're patient.
  • Elliot QuestElliot Quest —December 4, 2014— In Elliot Quest, the retro adventure platform game by Ansimuz Games, you can't die. Well, you can, but you always wake up at the last glowing rock thing you passed. Which is kind of weird when you think about it, and you need some answers. It's an enjoyable 8-bit throwback that doesn't pause the action to engage in any handholding. Elliot Quest will probably make you feel lost, but offers enough cool things to find to make it all worth while.
  • Game of Thrones </br> A TellTale Game SeriesGame of Thrones A TellTale Game Series —December 2, 2014— When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. In this first installment of TellTale's new episodic adventure game, House Forrester, bannermen to House Stark, find themselves struggling to keep their heads above the water amidst political machinations. Who can they trust? Your decisions could forge new alliances... or lead them to a bloody end.
  • A Date in the ParkA Date in the Park —December 1, 2014— Lou is waiting to meet the girl of his dreams for a second date in the park. When he gets there she is nowhere to be seen but Lou is a man who appreciates nature and good exploration. Even with the peaceful birds chirping away without a care in the world, there is something in the air that just doesn't fit right in this free indie point-and-click adventure.
  • Forest of Drizzling RainForest of Drizzling Rain —November 29, 2014— After Shiori's parents die in a car accident, she drifts listlessly until she discovers a photograph of a relative she doesn't remember, in a town her parents did their best to make her forget about. Despite a rocky translation and some annoying gameplay sequences, this creepy free indie horror adventure emphasizes story, mystery, and character for a solid and engaging play.
  • World's DawnWorld's Dawn —November 27, 2014— Sugar Blossom Villages looks to be a little slice of paradise, but it's missing something. Could it be you? Find out in World's Dawn, an RPG-Farming Simulation hybrid by Wayward Prophet. Those not already fans of its Harvest Moon-esque gameplay may not be won over by its slow pace, but genre-lovers with a yen for strong character interaction and game mechanics will find it right up their alley.
  • Capella's PromiseCapella's Promise —November 24, 2014— When his sister agrees to look after a strange girl for a huge sum, Velk thinks it's strange, but things go from weird to dangerous when the girl becomes a target of the Emissaries and has no idea why. A massive freeware indie RPG that makes up for a lot of grinding with tons of content and combat customisation.
  • It MovesIt Moves —November 23, 2014— Everyone is always bothered by the unexplained bump in the night. But what if the noise is more simple, like someone rustling in the supposedly empty bunk below you. Each night you are haunted by nightmares, but they are nothing compared to what happens when you are awake.
  • Sneaky SneakySneaky Sneaky —November 21, 2014— Just 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?
  • This War of MineThis War of Mine —November 20, 2014— In 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.
  • StarbotStarbot —November 18, 2014— Short but more than a little sweet, this free indie adventure inspired by The Little Prince follows a small, newly built robot who makes an unusual friend and discovers the importance of love and friendship for a cozy, effortlessly charming experience.
  • The InquisitorThe Inquisitor —November 18, 2014— Murder is great, I think we can all agree, but what about endless, procedurally generated murder presented in the form of logic puzzles? Explore and interrogate witnesses, keeping your own notes and maps, and figure out who to accuse as well as their weapons and motives in this simple but smart game made in just nine days.
  • The Stoneville MysteryThe Stoneville Mystery —November 16, 2014— Johnny's father isn't there when the little boy wakes up one dark and stormy night, and he decides to brave the cold and the rain to find him and bring him home in this short but charming free indie adventure.
  • Five Nights at Freddy's 2Five Nights at Freddy's 2 —November 13, 2014— Mere 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?
  • Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of GlorkGlorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork —November 12, 2014— A James Kolchaka/Pixeljam joint production, Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork gives you just the right mix of retro-shooter action, platform stomping, and Saturday morning cartoon. Its difficulty is definitely old-school, but it's bright, bouncy, mindless, and completely unashamed of it, making for fun sci-fi shenanigans.
  • A Bird StoryA Bird Story —November 12, 2014— One lonely little boy's whole life is changed when he discovers an injured bird in this stunning interactive narrative by Freebird Games, creators of beloved indie adventure To the Moon, that should not be missed.
  • Coin CryptCoin Crypt —November 9, 2014— Finding a mysterious island you find an even far more mysterious collection of coins given to you by the ghost of the dead. Fight your way around the island to gain even more and watch your foes be crushed in defeat before stealing their precious coins in this endless quest. You can also play as a monkey!
  • The Binding of Isaac: RebirthThe Binding of Isaac: Rebirth —November 4, 2014— It's baaaaaaaaack... Isaac is bigger, badder, and beefier than ever in this super-enhanced remake of the original gory, violent top-down roguelike shooter. With completely overhauled visuals, a haunting new soundtrack, and piles of new enemies, items, and secrets to uncover, it's a remake that's faithful to fans as well as its roots.
  • The Detail - Episode 1: Where the Dead LieThe Detail - Episode 1: Where the Dead Lie —November 2, 2014— For Detective Moore, the night shift at his police department is about to get real exciting. A dead body with a mystery killer, internal affairs breathing down his neck over his less-than-tactful ways of getting at the truth and the chief expecting a quick investigation for the sake of public image. It's quite the wild ride that Rival Games offers in their point-and-click crime noir adventure title, The Detail - Episode 1: Where the Dead Lie.
  • Monsters & MedicineMonsters & Medicine —October 26, 2014— Get the door, because it's a throng of monsters demanding your... medical treatment? Build your hospital while bringing life to the dying in this adorable turn-based strategy game from Clockwork Acorn that's good for what ails ya.
