Heartwood Heartwood is a short audio-visual adventure created by Kerry Turner and Dan Bibby. It was inspired by folk tales, horror movies, theme park rides, and those dreams you have where nothing makes sense but everything "makes sense". There aren't really any puzzles to solve or quests to complete, just a small world of strange events to stroll through and experience.

Ramble Planet Ramble Planet is one of those quirky under-the-radar games you only get the privilege of stumbling across every couple of years. It plays like a scavenger hunt mixed with some RPG elements, though if you've been kicking around Earth planet for a few decades, you'll remember that most RPGs used to have that scavenger hunt feel to them. Ramble Planet simply takes that feature, intensifies it and peels off all the excess, sprinkling in some beguiling text snippets to spark your imagination.

Sig.NULL Sig.NULL is a downloadable expansion to last year's Signal, a Sokoban-esque puzzle game about pushing blocks into place using drones that you control... more or less. The puzzles are hard enough as is, but discovering the bizarre mechanics that make everything run is another major endeavor. Even if you're familiar with how Signal worked, Sig.NULL adds many new features that make this a fresh challenge for all takers.

Escape from Jay Is Games Here it is, dear JayIsGames community, fan fiction made by the creator for you. As resoundingly requested, Mateusz Skutnik's remarkably immersive artwork, full of atmosphere and imagination, rendered into an escape-the-room game that's accessible to all. Take your time in the strange-yet-beautifully surreal scene; you may be out before you're ready to go but it's no less enjoyable while it lasts.

Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville If you thought saving your city from zombies had been accomplished in Rebuild or Rebuild 2, you were wrong. While still in early release, the new game from Sarah Northway, Rebuild: Gangs of Deadsville takes you back to the trenches with new characters, more story, and a great-looking new overlay. And with so much more yet to come, you'll look forward to many hours of survival simulation and zombie madness yet to come.

It's sort of like a speedy version of N, only instead of being a small ninja, you're a creature that can't stop getting bigger.

You Are Not A Banana: Chapter 1 You Are Not A Banana: Chapter 1 is a game about everyday life. It was built by Brian Cullen and is filled more than its fair share of humor, tossing the supremely average protagonist into a series of mudane situations made extraordinary by the puzzles and arcade sequences you'll complete in order to make it through the day. It's a bit like Super Amazing Wagon Adventure, only you get to play as a banana for a bit.

Fearless Fantasy Fearless Fantasy is a combat-centric role playing game created by Enter Skies. It ditches all the in-between stuff found in RPGs, such as overworld map traversing and endless dialogue trees, in favor of stats, skills, items and pure, smooth, delicious combat. Layered on top of that is a simple but enjoyable story that's got a runaway princess, a sarcastic hero, and at least one enemy who lost the battle because he has a hole in his sock.

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 Simulator 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 Champions 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.

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.

Fingerbones 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.

Moonchild 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.

Windforge 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.

Cube and Star: An Arbitrary Love Cube & Star: An Arbitrary Love is the kind of game you fire up when you know you want to play something but aren't quite sure what you're in the mood for. The delightfully abstract experience from Doppler Interactive puts you in a gray world and says "now go out and do stuff". That "stuff" involves bumping into trees, painting the ground different colors, knocking corners with other shapes, collecting some of the many strange items hidden throughout the environment, and just generally rolling around to see what you can see. Somehow, it's bizarrely entertaining.

Roommates Max and Anne are two very different young people, but they've both found themselves at the same college in the same student housing. Your choices will determine their lives, grades, and even their love-life in this funny, light-hearted, and addictive visual novel simulation!

The Walking Dead: Season 2 </br> Episode Two: A House Divided In this second chapter of TellTale's episodic point-and-click adventure series based on The Walking Dead, danger literally comes knocking when a stranger who seems to be after Clem's new companions shows up. Faces old and new make an appearance, but safety and trust are harder come by than before, and this chapter pulls no punches.

Chuck's Challenge 3D Chuck's Challenge 3D is Chip's Challenge for the 21st century. Created by Niffler, a team of indie developers that happens to include the original creator of Chip's Challenge Chuck Sommerville, the multi-platform sokoban-like game takes the tile-based puzzles from the original release and updates it for modern players. You'll still deal with slippery ice floors, falling platforms, enemies marching back and forth, and a large supply of items to collect before you can open the door. But now you'll do it with full camera control and lots of pretty visuals!

Banished Life is slow in Banished, the civilization-building simulation from one-man indie studio Shining Rock Software, but it's anything but easy. It's up to you to take your tiny settlement of cast-out villagers and slowly build up their home in the wilderness into a sprawling civilization. Just watch out for winter. And typhoons. And famine. And cholera. And your own impatience and lack of planning.

Social Caterpillar Social Caterpillar is a refreshingly original game about introversion, and goes about demonstrating what it's like by modelling the game's mechanics from it. Conversations with other characters take on the look and feel of an old-school RPG battle, but instead of attacking you're presented with some bizarre shape pattern or geometrical design and must use the [arrows] to navigate the conversation by choosing the appropriate shape or pattern in response.

Card City Nights You've just moved to a unique town that's got one thing on its mind... card games! In this engaging blend of strategic collectible card battling and quirky adventuring, the great Card King is finally accepting battles, but you'll need to find eight legendary cards to even get a chance at him... and build a deck of 180 different cards in the process!

Jazzpunk It is the year 1959B. You are Polyblank, spy extraordinaire. In Necrophone Games' first person comedy adventure game, Jazzpunk, you are tasked with a variety of missions from infiltrating the Soviet Consulate to doing something involving a mechanical pig. Each mission will take you into a strange new world with an overabundance of objects to interact with. How are these missions connected? What is the big picture here? Is there one?

Broken Age Shay and Vella are two very different people. Shay lives aboard a ship where the AI loves him a bit too much. Vella is being forced to sacrifice literally everything for her village. Neither knows the other exists, but two extraordinary stories are about to come together in an unexpected way in this stunning point-and-click indie adventure from Double Fine.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch What started as a crazy student project has grown into a crazy indie game. Octodad: Dadliest Catch by Young Horses continues the mad premise first showcased in the 2010 tech demo, adding a storyline and loads of new environments to stumble around in. What should be a series of ordinary tasks end up being wacky hijinks in the world of Octodad. Think of it as QWOP in a 3D world and you've got a good idea for just how mad this game can be.

Weekend Download №258 Games, like chocolate glazed donuts, don't just appear in the world fully formed and ready to be devoured. They have to be crafted one ingredient at a time, working their way from concept to prototype to playable alpha and eventually full release. This week's games are all early versions of games that are still baking in the oven. Not that you actually bake donuts or games, but you get the picture.

Mission US: A Cheyenne Odyssey A Cheyenne Odyssey is the second in the series of Mission US educational point-and-click adventure game titles focusing on American History, created by Electric Funstuff under the auspices of New York PBS Station Channel 13. The year is 1866. You are Little Fox, a twelve-year old member of the Northern Cheyenne tribe. Over the next ten years, your traditional way of life will see many changes. But as the world changes, so does the Cheyenne. And so must you. Another excellent installment of the Mission US series, if hampered by a few too many talking-head conversations.
