Link Dump Friday №296 The season is getting colder, stores are packed full of twinkling lights and mistletoe, and a young gamer's mind turns to thoughts of... mass murder and infanticide. Of course. But don't worry! Even if you're not into the icky-sticky, this week's Link Dump Friday delivers genre bending (and blending!), games with friends, and much more... including one gamer's heartfelt personal experiences with life and death that may make you cry.

The Vault №112 What's in an RPG? As games continue to evolve and change concepts, that's changed significantly. Some of them might merely incorporate "RPG elements", while others rely on providing a story-lite, but in depth combat-oriented adventure, and still more offer up classic JRPG style with a twist. Here are three games who all serve up RPG gameplay, of sorts, in vastly different styles and ways.

The Vault №111 Thinking compelling, memorable stories can't be found in browser games is a mistake, and on this week's Vault we look at three games that take very different approaches to delivering their narrative. From a near-wordless space platforming adventure, to a shooter taking place inside an AI, and a point-and-click adventure about a girl who deals in unusual currency.

Mobile Monday №194 Hey there. How would you like a mobile game based on Game of Thrones? Well, you might just get it! Or you might not, it all depends on how far off the rumor mill is turning. As long as there's a mini-game centered around dropping dung on Joffrey, we'll consider it a success.

What more could you possibly want? I mean, aside from robot hounds with bees in their mouths, and when they bark they shoot bees at intruders. Otherwise, we've got you covered.

Oh well, at least there's all the wonderful games in the archives to console me. Today in the Vault, we have a bit of cryptically challenging wordplay, a demonically delicious piece of platforming, and some super sliding Sokoban ripe for the solving.

Granny Smith is both a granny and a member of the Smith family, whereas Star Command actually lets you command stars—wait, it's a starship commanding game? Oh. Well. Then. Nevermind!

A macabre toy story, an up close and visceral medical simulation, and a horrifyingly tense game of cat-and-mouse will be just the ticket to get you ready for the season. Pleasant dreams.

Summerbatch: Volume One Forget bundles, the real good stuff now comes in batches! Summerbatch: Volume One is a collection of indie adventure games from developers who have a habit of creating and releasing free games. Name your own price for this nice collection, scoring five adventure games for yourself (four and an action game, technically) and sending some monetary thanks to these very fine developers. And for every £500 raised, £50 goes to charity! As if you needed another excuse to grab the batch.

The Vault №106 Walk on air, save a viking, and join forces with a dynamic duo who should be incompatible!

Whether you've always wanted to be the Avatar or are old like me and don't exactly know what the Avatar is but still like good games, these titles are unique, fun, and definitely puzzling.

Bundles of Bundles: The Indie Bundling As you've no doubt noticed, indie game bundles are the new "it" thing, sort of like the modern equivalent of slap bracelets or the musical stylings of Harvey Danger. How long this trend will last we're not sure, but in the meantime, everyone with a bunch of string and connections in the indie gaming market are gathering games together for new and exciting bundles. Here's a look at a few of the big bundles currently running.

Because We May One of the cornerstones of indie game development is, if you'll allow us a moment on our soapbox, freedom. The freedom to make the game you want exactly how you want to make it. While this doesn't always pan out to be as glamorous as it may seem, creating and releasing indie games is an art mixed with a science tempered by the cold hard realities of business. And in a world where distributing your game across multiple platforms is commonplace, there's some very real competition to tangle with out there.
