This is a rather sad and grim game, and I dunno if I like it as much as the others in this thread, but it has something to it.

Reviving this thread in order to link this: The Good Doctor. (To play, press the link that says "Web (Post-Compo)"). A little story about the Black Death.

Not really a game, since there are no real challenges to surpass. But it's a pretty neat story.

The latest Ludum Dare, a challenge to create free indie games in a short space of time (48 hours for the Compo, 72 hours for the Jam) is now finished. The theme was "minimalism". What follows is my list of the best games to emerge from it, obviously only counting the ones I played.

Floating Point. An atmospheric, surreal adventure game with a unique interface gimmick.

Composition with Yellow, Red, and Blue. An innovative puzzle game where you move your character around by activating magnet-like items.

Gods Will Be Watching. A management game in point-and-click form where you have to keep your exploration team alive on a distant planet until you can be rescued. Arguably tied with "Floating Point" as my favourite of the games. (Protip: keep the fire going, or your team will freeze to death overnight.)

Drug Hunt. A trippy rhythm game. CONTENT WARNING: Contains drug abuse. Probably shouldn't be played if you suffer from epilepsy.

CHAMELEON RUN. An "infinite runner" game with a twist. Simplistic but addictive.

Deja Vu. A 3D puzzle game. Tough but original.


Or check all the games out yourself. There's bound to be at least a thousand more good ones that I've missed.
I... I must succeed!

Asphyx. A simplistic platformer with a twist.

Probably shouldn't be played if you have a fear of drowning.

A game that might be relevant to the interests of our "Papers, Please" fans:

Before you could play an immigration inspector in Arstotzka, you could play a newspaper editor in Republia.

Not as big or complex as its sequel, but it's pretty darn addictive anyway.

Glory to Republia!!!
