When each planet has its own randomly created monsters and environments, you never know what you'll find.

Risk of Rain In most roguelikes, grinding levels is the answer, but in Hopoo Games' brutally difficult action game, the longer you wait, the harder things get. When your cargo ship crashes on a hostile alien planet, you're left with no choice but to fight your way through the local wildlife and massive monsters, unlocking new characters and items along the way, if you want to survive.

Knock-Knock! You'll either love it or hate it, but Ice-Pick Lodge's unique indie horror game is one of the most surreal and striking games the genre has seen in a long time. As a mysterious Lodger who's been having trouble sleeping, dawn seems to be taking forever... and it might never come if you can't figure out the rules to the chilling game of hide and seek you're playing with some uninvited guests, and unravel the mystery of your own past.

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded A remade version of the classic Sierra adventure game, Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded has Replay Games teaming up with original creator Al Lowe to bring Larry Laffer swinging into the 21st century. A bit dated (though that's kind of the point), but a hilariously immature experience.

Full Bore Full Bore is a puzzle platform adventure from Whole Hog Games that turns you loose in a world of corrupt boar bosses and a mysterious conspiracy brewing beneath the surface. After a successful crowd funding campaign in late 2012, Full Bore has emerged as a gorgeous metroidvania-style game that's heavy on puzzle solving with just a touch of boar-flavored humor.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

Shadowrun Returns In the world of Shadowrun, magic and the digital age collide in a dangerous age where dealing with backstabbing dragons running drug cartels is every bit as likely as corporate espionage carried out by cybernetically enhanced trolls. Harebrained Schemes puts a fresh spin on the cult classic tabletop game and brings it into the digital era with this engrossing turn-based strategy RPG, including the tools to make and share your own campaigns for free.

Element4l It's tough to be a little element. You're at the mercy of every current of wind and lava flow on the block. Fortunately for the four elements in Element4l, they're bound together as a single entity and can switch as easily as you or I eat a whole bar of chocolate (i.e. instantly). This soothing but challenging arcade game from I-Illusions puts you in charge of those transformations, utilizing them as efficiently as you can in order to move through each stage safely.

The Night of the Rabbit Daedelic Entertainment's point-and-click adventure game The Night of the Rabbit is the equivalent of your childhood picturebooks: visually and aurally lush, with a cast of charming animal characters and a human boy as the plucky protagonist. It's an engaging companion for an evening's play but unfortunately it can also be a little too long-winded for its own good.

On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode Four It seemed like Gabe and Tycho's plan to save the world was airtight except for ONE little detail someone forgot to mention, and now their entire party is stranded in the Under Hell. Mainly because the whole world was destroyed. Uh, whoops? To set things straight, you'll need to reunite your party and wrangle a veritable zoo of monsters to do your fighting for you in this wild and weird conclusion to the indie RPG series that gives a new meaning to the phrase "unique".
