  • It's Not About The AliensIt's Not About The Aliens —May 8, 2014— A fantastic art game with an arresting pixel-based art style, this physics-based platformer follows a rebel searching for their lost love in an alien-infested world. But it's not about the aliens. It's about survival, loneliness, and the sacrifices we make for those we love.
  • Dungeon NightmaresDungeon Nightmares —May 4, 2014— Featuring randomly-generated levels and a gorgeous, eerie sound design, this game is not for the faint of heart. Travel through each dark dungeon, collecting notes and artifacts by flickering candlelight, with hordes of undead tormentors ready to leap at you from the darkness.

  • FRACT OSCFRACT OSC —April 26, 2014— FRACT first teased our eyes and ears back at the beginning of 2011. It's been a few years, but the full release is finally upon us in the form of FRACT OST, an abstract first person puzzle game steeped in mystery and musical riddles. It's the kind of game that rewards you for jotting down notes on a piece of paper, as you never know what odd shape/color combination might be used to solve a puzzle later on.
  • Dreaming MaryDreaming Mary —April 26, 2014— There'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?
  • IncitementIncitement —April 20, 2014— Matthew Ashworth brings his RPG Maker skills to light in his science fiction RPG title for download, Incitement. Play Maddock, a human who leads an unlikely group of humanoids (not all carbon-based) to uncover the greasy underbelly of their mixed race society. Battle your way through enemies to slowly reveal the story as you make choices that will affect the outcome through 10 hours of gameplay.
  • Space FarmersSpace Farmers —April 20, 2014— The Bumpkin Brothers are back! The team's latest release has nothing to do with Tribloos or machines. Well, wait, scratch that, it does have something to do with machines, but that's not the point! Space Farmers is a decidedly retro-feeling cooperative arcade game that takes place on an alien spacecraft. Two simple farmers have been kidnapped by the non-Earthlings, and they're going to use every gadget and pigcube they can get their hands on to get back!
  • Pink Hour (Studio Pixel)Pink Hour (Studio Pixel) —April 13, 2014— There are only two words you need to see before downloading this game: Studio Pixel. The creator of Cave Story has been hard at work on the upcoming sidescrolling platformer Kero Blaster, but in the meantime, we get a free game! Pink Hour serves as a small taster for next month's big release, stuffing plenty of shooting, pixel-perfect jumps, and painfully high level of difficulty into its cute little package.
  • Cat GameCat Game —April 13, 2014— When your beloved cat Toby goes missing, you scour the town for him, but little do you suspect you're about to take a strange trip and find out the stranger truth behind cats in this short but cute freeware adventure game.
  • My Little Investigations: True Blue ScootalooMy Little Investigations: True Blue Scootaloo —April 12, 2014— My Little P.I., My Little P.I., aaa-aa-aaa-aaaaaaahhhh... when Rarity's precious gem is stolen and the only suspect is one tiny Pegasus, it's up to Twilight Sparkle to solve the mystery in this gorgeous free Ace Attorney-styled visual novel adventure based on My Little Pony!
  • DavidDavid —April 9, 2014— David is a game, an arcade game, and David is a very unusual game. Our little polygon hero finds himself in a world of abstract shapes and giant evil beasts that are out to eviscerate him one angle at a time. His only powers are the ability to run away like a little yellow belly and fire slingshot-like blasts at his foes. Sometimes he feels powerful, sometimes victorious, but there's always nagging feelings of helplessness and hopelessness in this dangerous world that just wants David to go away.
  • Wizard WizardWizard Wizard —April 8, 2014— The best wizard around may not know much actual magic, but he does have a fabulous double jump. Navigate treacherous landscapes and save the princess in this free, highly polished platformer for Windows and Mac.
  • Mimicry ManMimicry Man —April 5, 2014— It's your job to take down the legendary hero in this quirky fantasy puzzle game. Who are you? Why, the lord of all Mimics, of course, those sneaky monster treasure chests! You'll need to gobble your way through people from all over the world, luring them in with the items others drop, in order to finally find the sword the hero is looking for to snare him in your trap!
  • Noir SyndromeNoir Syndrome —April 4, 2014— Detective work isn't known for its shallow learning curve. Or for being the kind of thing you can do while standing in line at the post office. With Noir Syndrome, however, solving crimes has become quite a bit more casual. This pick up and play adventure game gives you randomly generated murder mysteries to solve, all you have to do is gather the clues and make the arrest! Oh, and pick a few locks, shoot a few baddies, and have a few snacks. Detectives gotta eat too, you know.
  • Goat SimulatorGoat Simulator —April 4, 2014— Finally, a game which answers the age-old question, "what would it be like to be a goat?" This is Goat Simulator, the action sandbox game which parodies infamously "realistic" simulation games. Headbutt cars, do flips on trampolines or bleat at unsuspecting pedestrians... you can do it all!
  • AErena: Clash of ChampionsAErena: Clash of Champions —March 29, 2014— Sail the skies and duke it out for supremacy in this colourful and engaging turn-based strategy RPG. With a fantastic steampunk vibe and easy to pick up combat, it's a fine addition to the genre you can even play on your mobile device.
  • No more Bullets —March 27, 2014— Typically when dealing with monsters, you've got to duke it out, but what happens when you literally can't? Created for the Procedural Death Jam and playable in beta, this dungeon-crawling roguelike drops you into deadly procedurally generated environments where you need to use your wits to bait, lure, and sneak by the things waiting to tear you limb from limb.
  • FingerbonesFingerbones —March 24, 2014— You find yourself all alone in this supremely disturbing horror story... just you, the dust motes, the sunlight... and the knives on the table. Follow the notes to search for clues to find out what's happened, but be warned, you might not want to know.
  • MoonchildMoonchild —March 16, 2014— It's comforting to contemplate that everyone has rough days, even if you're royalty. When the queen's daughter is abducted by a gargoyle, it's up to none other than her majesty herself to set out on a huge quest in this colourful indie RPG from Aldorlea.
  • WindforgeWindforge —March 11, 2014— Windforge is going to blow your mind. On the surface it sounds like a garden variety Terraria or Minecraft clone with a steampunk coat of paint. Spend an hour with the game and you'll realize it's so very much more than that. Windforge is a sidescrolling role playing game that lets you build and fly an airship and craft tons of items, weapons and parts. Everything in the environment is destructible, giving you a tremendous sense of freedom and making just about every other exploration game look restrictive by comparison.
