Bad Dream: Graveyard (Windows, free) - A short point and click game with a dark setting and morbid undertones. Move the cursor around to interact with objects, picking up items and storing them in your inventory for later use. Click the arrows to walk to different screens. The puzzles are pretty basic, but you'll agree that the artwork and atmosphere are really what makes this game a winner.
The Art of Dying (Windows, free) - Dying is pretty commonplace in the virtual gaming worlds we often visit. The Art of Dying is a challenging platform game with six levels, a super hard mode, and a complete level editor to boot. Your job is to work your way through each stage, jumping and slashing things as you try to stay alive. You'll fail, of course, but since you'll do it so spectacularly, you really won't mind!
Savage: The Shard of Gosen (Windows, free alpha) - One part action, one part exploration, and one part RPG, the alpha version of Savage paints a cruel world filled with violence where one man's only hope for survival is to fight back. Explore the land as you take on roaming enemies and nab upgrades and pieces of equipment, much like in the classic Zelda II. Savage is still early in its development and some really great things are planned for the future, but this demo proves it's already got a lot going for it!
