The Strange and Somewhat Sinister Tale of the House at Desert Bridge (Windows, 39MB, free) - This unpolished gem is a point-and-click room escape adventure just like the web-based fare we've grown to love and adore. It has humor! It has serious bits! It has graphics! It has a really long name! The inventory has a "gerbelize" option!
AssaultCube (Mac/Windows/Linux, 40-45MB, free) - A surprisingly good team-based first person shooter built around the original Cube game. The gameplay itself is fairly straightforward: pick up gun/grenade, shoot opponent, repeat. But with online multiplayer that supports 56k connections and single player computer-controlled bot deathmatches, the fun far outweighs the predictable simplicity of the game itself.
