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.

Weekend Download №243 Nothing like a little nostalgia to start the weekend! Be warned, though. This nostalgia comes with a price. That price is your sanity. Because the games are difficult. But that's good. Go play.

Ironclad Tactics Ironclad Tactics is a turn-based strategy game created by Zachtronics, the studio behind The Codex of Alchemical Engineering and SpaceChem. Set in an alternate-history post-U.S. Civil War era, the game pits you against the Confederates as you march your way across the country, one town and one battle at a time. There's a twist, however: steampunk technology is a thing, meaning your infantry units will have to take on ironclad contraptions and well-equipped automatons in addition to gunslingers and musket wielders. It makes for a really entertaining setting, but you'll feel bad for those squishy human soldiers.

Sokobond I think we should have some bonding time. Chemical bonding, that is. In the clever chemical puzzler Sokobond, you're given a handful of atoms and the task of them joining them all by pushing and chaining them together. Like Sokoban puzzles you might be familiar with, you don't have much space to do it all in, so you've got to use the splitters, bonders, and rotators provided. Even if you don't give a hoot for chemistry, Sokobond is still a very accessible puzzle with easy-to-learn rules and an enjoyably element-ary design.

Unholy Heights Zombies and Cheepies and Succubbi, oh my! It's so tough being a landlord in the mythical 21st century. You have to contend with groups of creatures who can't stand each other, and everyone has constant demands. On top of that you have groups of adventurers who want only to steal your hard-earned money. This storyline is the genius behind Petit Depotto's simulation/defense hybrid, Unholy Heights. Be you a hard-nosed landlord or a more gentle, giving one doesn't matter as long as they fight your enemies at your every beck and call.

Heroes of Loot OrangePixel has done it again! The studio known for its nigh-on perfect retro recreations has crafted a top-down arcade RPG similar to the old Gauntlet series. Heroes of Loot puts you in the shoes of an adventurer fighting his way through dungeon floor after dungeon floor, dispatching enemies and grabbing loot left and right. It's just the sort of pick up and play experience that works well on mobile devices, and you'll find yourself quickly hooked by its creative blend of action and RPG elements.

Kickstarter: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (WayForward) Coming next year to PC and consoles if this Kickstarter has anything to say about it, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero stars Shantae, who, after having a nightmarish vision of an ancient evil about to rise, embarks on a platforming action adventure to stop it using her unique abilities. With over 23 years of experience and 200 titles under their belt, can WayForward bring the star of the hit iOS adventure to a new generation?

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs In this chilling indie horror game, our protagonist awakes, dizzy and disoriented, in a dark and silent house, in a bed surrounded by a cage whose door has just been opened. Hearing the phantom laughter and pleas of children, he has no choice but to stumble forth in search of them. But what are all these locks and bars on the doors, dressers, beds and windows? What are the ornate sculpted pig masks that silently watch you from every room? Why do you suffer from disturbing, disjointed memories? Why are there so many hidden passages in this place... and why does it shake and groan around you? There are a lot of questions, but the answers might not be the ones our hero was hoping to find.

Shelter The wind at your hair. The trees by your sides. The grass at your heels. And the pitter patter of little badger cub feet as they struggle to keep pace. Shelter from pid developer Might and Delight puts you in the fur of a mother badger as she protects and feeds her young. It's a subtle and quiet game that relies on atmosphere and emotion rather than puzzles or action. It's soothing nature setting will encourage you to sit back and enjoy the ride. Just don't relax too much, as there are dangers in the forest you and your cubs must guard against.

Sepulchre A quiet train ride turns out to something else entirely in this short, bloodless and jumpless freeware horror adventure. Though potentially both too obvious in its twist and heavy in its symbolism, Sepulchre is a beautifully executed and eerie little tale that's worth checking out.

Daring? Educational? Or misguided? Opinions are bound to be mixed.

Weekend Download №240 This week, we wanted to have a theme where every game had a number in its title. One game fits that rule, another one can be sorta stretched to fit it, and the third, well, that's when we decided rules are dumb and ate some nutella instead.

A Game of Numbers If two apples and five pears cost 37 cents and five apples and three pears cost 45 cents, how come math problems are so boring? A Game of Numbers is a puzzle game that challenges the stereotype of boring math problems, by giving you a maze of numbers and operations to solve. Even if you're not a numbers buff, there's still a lot of fun to be had finding the right path to the exit, while keeping your numbers in check.

Skullgirls Visually stunning and packed with creative characters that are as cute as they can be freaky and grotesque, Skullgirls is one of the most addictive fighting games around. The Skull Heart can grant the wish of any woman, but if she isn't pure of heart she'll find her wish and herself warped by its power into the terrifying Skull Girl. Now that a new Skull Girl has risen, a whole new cast of characters take up arms to take her down... and get the power for themselves!

Sir, You Are Being Hunted (Alpha) Currently playable in Alpha, this indie stealth game has you searching for fragments needed to rebuild your portal back home after you accidentally end up in another world. Sound simple? Not quite. With dapper armed robots hunting you across the countryside and surrounding islands for sport, you're outgunned and outnumbered, and all you have is what you can scavenge. It's not looking good for you...

Weekend Download №238 It's easy to tell what's on our mind this weekend: sleep, abstract experiences, and butler. The former because sleep is good. The middle one because rhubarb pie. The latter because Mr. Belvedere was a fantastic television show.

Pom Gets Wi-Fi Pom is a self-absorbed, foul-mouthed, pop-culture obsessed Pomeranian pup who wants nothing more than to spend all day (every day) on the internet, which might hit a bit too close to home for some of us. Things get, uh, complicated, however, and suddenly she finds herself stuck somewhere with no internet connection, and thus begins a quest to get hooked back up online.

Gone Home Gone Home is an unconventional story exploration adventure game created by The Fullbright Company. It's a game that's void of traditional puzzles, flashy cutscenes, and hidden rooms filled with guns and ammo. Somehow, though, it manages to capture your curiosity from the beginning and never, ever let go. Anyone who enjoys a good mystery or the feeling of uncovering a story piece by piece should check out Gone Home right away. Everyone else should read the rest of this article, then go play the game!

Papers, Please Lucas Pope delivers a bleak dystopian thriller in the form of a simulation in this game where you play a newly assigned border agent to the first immigration checkpoint opened in your rigidly controlled country in years. As restrictions rise and tensions mount, checking documents for accuracy and forgery becomes harder... especially when you find yourself forced to juggle the health and well being of your family against your own humanity.
