MaquisardIanAnyone who has worked in hospitality or seen a certain Wes Anderson film knows that being a lobby boy just isn't easy. The hotel has to be kept in tip top shape, the guests are always in need of a room service delivery, and foreign government agents are smuggling secrets across the border! All in a day's work for our petite protagonist. It's your first shift at the extravagant Maquisard Hotel and you hardly have time to get acquainted with your duties before a masked revolutionary tunnels through your bedroom floor and tasks you with identifying a government agent hiding among the hotel's five valued guests. The catch? You have only three days to catch the spy, so act quickly!

Curse of GreedPoofyWho recalls the story of King Midas? He who turned everything to gold when he touched it. The Curse of Greed has a thing like that in common, as you jump over platforms in a world filled with traps like spikes and lasers. All around this place are scattered coins, coins you can pick up, coins you want to pick up, because that's what you do in platform style games like this. Coins give you a higher score, right? Well, not this time. In this game your health bar fills up with gold, every time you pick up a coin and that means two things, one your health depletes and two once your health bar is filled to the brim with gold, you'll turn into gold and it's game over.

Submachine UniverseSuspended from time and space as we know it, will you be able to make sense of it all? Welcome to Submachine Universe, an innovative Mateusz Skutnik endeavor joining a new gaming experience with the well-known, well-loved series. Set in iconic Submachine style, players are led on a scavenger hunt-esque adventure spanning various dimensions - some old, some new, and some with a twist.

At the time of its initial launch in 2010, Submachine Universe's distinction was being one of the only massively singleplayer online (MSO) games available. And despite its conversion in late 2017 to "free HD downloadable," Skutnik successfully maintained the aura of vastness and exploration that comes with MSOs.

Rusty Lake ParadiseIan[Note: This game contains mild gore as well as themes of death and violence that some players might find upsetting.]

Rusty Lake has become one of the gaming community's favorite vacation destinations and the developers are responding to this with a string of projects that seem to only increase in scope. With yet another game already in the works and a short film planned for future release, Rusty Lake shows no signs of slowing down. Rusty Lake Paradise (available for PC, Mac, Android, and iOS) is the latest addition to the already extensive series, and is the third premium game to be released along with Rusty Lake Hotel and Rusty Lake Roots.

Piko Piko PoofyPiko Piko is a game about girls with hammers. That's seriously what this is about. You're a little red haired girl, with a humongous hammer and it's your job to.. to.. I haven't really figured that out yet. The game is in DEMO state, and while the audio is amazing, the controls are doing what they're supposed to do, and the visuals are looking very good already (tho, that one boss wielding a red trident isn't really done yet) there is no clue to what the plot is about in the amount of time I've played the game. My school got exploded, Nyankamoto (apparently a friend) has a tiny crush on me and I've seen my teacher getting kidnapped by robots. Are they evil robots? I can't tell.

Dear EdwinRetro platformers and other genres seem to be in vogue these days, but the title Dear Edwin moves the goalpost a notch further. Take a step back to the height of the industrial revolution and into the life of Edwin Vayne. Once a prominent detective, he has long since retired, until one day a strange letter pops into his life. Helplessly intrigued, Edwin decides he must follow the story himself and get to the bottom of a peculiar and very complicated tale.

Klepto  - Space ThiefA kleptomaniac, as those of you in the field of letters may know, is someone obsessed with collecting and hoarding things. The aptly named Klepto is character in our focus, preparing himself to steal...something. The developer and game don't provide much backstory, so the natural assumption is that Klepto the pig was bitten as a piglet by a radioactive spider possessing artificial intelligence. This gave him the ability to be sentient along with an appendage enabling tasks like grappling and gliding like a propeller. What's that you say? Don't believe me? I invite you to come up with a better theory!

Quidget the WonderwienerPoofyYou're Quidget the Wonderwiener, a genius dog and best friends with Peninja and it so happens to be that you need to deliver a present to him, but how...? Well, you are a genius, and you own a labratory, AND you have a lovely assistant named Beatrize, so it shouldn't be that hard to find a way to deliver a package, right?

Romance Detective 2Last year over at JIG, we reviewed a quirky little game known as Romance Detective, in which a dynamic duo team up to fight crime. But it's not just any kind of bad behavior that Chrys, a local cop, and her partner, the infamous Romance Detective seek out to investigate. It is crimes of passion, or ones committed in the name of love that piques their interest. After all, all's fair in love and war, so why not justice? Before reading further, I'd suggest playing the previous game (linked above) to avoid spoilers.

BeglitchedI played Beglitched a few months ago, so my excitement about it isn't as high as it was then, but I do know that I enjoyed it. What may turn people off about it initially is that looks like another match-3 game, but like Gridland, the Match-3 mechanic is paired with a strategy element that makes it engaging, in addition to the visual aesthetic and art and dialogue.

Pinstripe: Chapter 1The word literally is quite literally bandied about quite a bit these days. But even still, I think we would all literally go through hell for one of our children. And I don't think I am exaggerating. You. Would. Go. Through. Hell. For your kid. You might even say that hell would freeze over before you would let any farm befall them...

The SearchA letter, sitting alone on a pedestal on the landing of a spiraling marble staircase. There is nothing around you but darkness and you sense that you are somewhere else, someplace unreal and unknowable. Let the art guide you where it wants to go, the letter reads. Listen...

Forager

SatoriWhat's this? HopFrog's brought us this shiny and colorful exploration game with resource management and crafting elements! Thrown together in just a couple of weeks for the GMS2Jam, Forager has all the animation and sound effects you'd want to make for a thoroughly enjoyable gaming experience, and it's even procedurally-generated for maximum replayability. Explore the landscape, find resources, build facilities and learn to build new things! There are trees to harvest, stone and minerals to mine, treasure chests to find which give not just cash but your choice between permanent upgrades, and fish and herbs for replenishing your energy. Then build discharge stations to help you mine automatically! We thought more people deserved to hear about Forager, and we'd love to see what it could become with even more development!

Good fortune (and fun!) will come to those who dig through the archives.
