Faraday's FlawArceus It has been a while since we've covered one of CarmelGame's point-and-click games and their unique aesthetic. In this latest adventure of theirs, you play as a character Gus, whose day starts off as any other with your boss at the pizza shop screaming at you to be more efficient with your deliveries. Mysteriously, one of your orders is to be taken to your Uncle's lab, despite Gus being keenly aware of his Uncle's distaste for the food. Nonetheless, after some effort to search for the entrance, he brings it over. One thing begets the next, and before you know it, Gus is at the center of hatching a plot to win a city-wide contest! But if you think Gus only wants to enter this contest for the prize money, your heart will be warmed as you discover his real motivation to try and claim top prize, and why he'll do anything to attain it.

Animal Crossing Pocket CampNeed a chill game to kill time while you're waiting in line? Animal Crossing Pocket Camp is a mobile game that lets you run your own campsite with animal campers, and is the first mobile game in the Animal Crossing series. Many of the previous Animal Crossing games had you live in a town full of animal villagers and provided a home you could decorate. But while in Pocket Camp you are given a personal RV that travels around with you.

Weekday EscapeHi! This week on your Weekday Escape!

Tototo Room leaves you alone with a huge frog - it doesn't threathen you, only needs help. Dassyutu lets you play some billiards, but first you need to find a cue. Not chalk, you can do without it. Neat Escape's garage is a nice place, but something is missing here...yes, the car for a drive. Can you find it? The last game by Icy Oak is lovely point-and-click game.

Have a good time and enjoy!

Don't Starve TogetherDon't Starve Together is an inexpensive game that is easy for anyone to pick up. As an addition to the Don't Starve series of dark humor survival strategy games, Don't Starve Together has an expansive ever-changing world with many ways to play. In the original Don't Starve, after choosing a character to play as, you had to figure out how to survive a ridiculous and deadly environment with limited instructions. But playing through mysterious potentially-fatal nights and fighting monsters makes you realize - your odds of survival would be a lot better with someone watching your back.

This is where Don't Starve Together comes in. The game allows for up to six players to join in on the chaotic fun on one server. The gameplay is similar to other games in the series, but you don't need to know a previous game to play. The controls are simple, the game play is much more challenging.

Weekday EscapeWelcome to the summer season with the new Weekday Escape!

And welcome in cosy and colorful Amajeto's living room full of puzzles and with three well hidden keys. In another room by tomoLaSiDo is hidden one key only, but cosisting of six parts; and besides there is lot of grated vegetables. That girl at the toilet graffiti seems very happy about it. The third escape is by Neat Escape and takes you to a hotel, again, this time quite a basic one, but sufficient. You aren't going to spend a holiday there, anyway - if stuck, there is a helpful walkthrough.


Have a good time and enjoy!

Weekday Escape RetroIt's a time for looking back again - time for the Retro Weekday Escape! Tateita puts you into prison of some kind; and you are innocent! That's not fair! You can shout as loud as you can, but no answer...well, seems that you have to help yourself somehow...and the absence of guards definitely helps.

Hottategoya's escape terrace is a bit jail like too with all the bars around, but the sky is mediterranean blue, sunny and cloudless, so you may feel almost holiday-ish. Yeahm shows you surprizing approach to the genre and Minoto very surprizing approach to well known fairy tale

Have a good time and enjoy!

Wolf's BaneArceusIf you've browsed JiG frequently over the past year, you might have stumbled across my reviews of some of VasantJ's games, including the Medieval Cop and Medieval Angel Series. From this same creator comes another game of the same sort, a spinoff around the beloved, slightly-more-positive-than-Dregg (who are we kidding, that description is pretty empty!) detective Amber Heart. Starting with the innocuous enough premise "A flock of sheep walk into a bar," VasantJ soon tosses us into the newly 3D-rendered world of Amber Heart conducting an interrogation at a murder scene. It seems she's hellbent on using some techniques that would scare the daylights (or a confession) out of anyone!

The DeepArceusThe Deep is a tactical D&D style game, married with the style of RPGMaker. Made originally for a contest (Indie Game Maker Contest 2017 on itch.io), the game features a world where humans used to live underground, trapped as slaves to monsters. In this world they were also prohibited from using magic or weapons of any kind, so the only option open to them was learning to use their bodies to fight. Once they finally managed to earn their freedom and break into the surface realm, they quickly learned that life above ground was no picnic either. A race of xenophobic elves with no tolerance for anyone else attempted to wipe them out. Fast forward to a couple of centuries later, and peace seems to closer, and worse yet, only a small band of humans still posses the skills to defend themselves.

Weekday EscapeWelcome! The invitation to play is here - the new Weekday Escape is out!
Maymay doesn't want you to collect fruits or candies - it's fixing time. You are do-it-yourself guy now and the game gives you valuable know-how which you may use in real life. Amajeto kindly provides a shelter in heavy rain...and suddenly locks you in. Without any rest you need to solve many puzzles to get out (and get soaked, probably). Finally you get home with No1game, but your apartment is unbearably hot - your mother says, that if you find ten green escape men, they would help...do you believe her?

Have a good time and enjoy!

You Left MeArceusLast fall, I wrote about beautifully rendered, short point-n-click game accompanied by a suitably haunting soundtrack from Zephyo, I Woke Up Next to You Again. Since then she's published many others, most recently a game in a similar vein of style with a slightly more exploration-based feeling to it. Much like the previous title we reviewed here, You Left Me deals with a difficult topic with splashes of color amongst the melancholy, contrasting warmth with crushing sadness. To set the scene, you wake up in another world you do not recognize, with nothing but your bed floating up in space, the moon looming large in the sky above you, a most unusual feline friend by your side, and oh yeah, a fridge floating nearby because why not?

The ButlerArceusWhite gloves, fine suit, cleanly shaven. There was always something suspiciously precise about your butler, lurking just beneath the surface. A feeling that there might be something of pure evil just beneath the veil of lies. Something surreptitiously slinking submerged by the subservience. If you're the kind of person who has nightmares about, of all things, a potential butler, I'm afraid this game isn't going to provide you with much reassurance!

I Remember The RainArceusIt's funny how the mind works sometimes. It can fixate upon the most abstract detail of an evening when tragedy struck. And such is the focus of Jordan B's I Remember the Rain, which tells the emotional and devastating story of that one evening in the character's life. Just like its namesake might imply,I Remember the Rain focuses on the little details and illustrates the feeling of loss in a poignant way through visual storytelling, excellently accompanied by voice acting, soft music - and yes - the sound of the falling rain.
