And Now, a List of Games I Like

a collection by DancingEngie · last updated 2019-01-12 15:08:21

Games/maybe-games that I liked/thought were interesting/inspired me.

I'll be honest, I don't really like virtual museums. Or real ones, at that. But MotSI is a bit easier to recommend as it's more akin to a personal documentary piece about friendship, depression and memes. If you're into that, give this interactive a try.

A cyberpunk reflective/beatemup/rhythm/typing/fiction/fidget game with a soundtrack you can customize!
Interactive Fiction

A beautiful little mini-game collection with a very appealing art style and an interesting world. The writing is sharp but perhaps a bit too dark. My only criticism would be that the combat is very sticky and lacks punch, but it's clear that's not the main draw of the game.

A Billionaire Simulator
Role Playing
Play in browser

A funny thought experiment about spending billions of dollars on things that are actually worthwhile. Has some interesting facts and assumptions. It does get cringey with its political commentary at points, but it's so crazy and over-the-top that it's not overbearing.

A game about lying in bed with your best friend and making major life decisions.
Interactive Fiction
Play in browser

Based on the "Coming Out Simulator" 'engine', this is a cute little conversation sim about life choices and also toilet papers.

Just what it says on the tin

A day in the life of Caleb, a 14 year old Jehovah's Witness
Simulation
Play in browser

A brutally honest look at the Jehovah's Witness sect from the experiences of a former JW. It's minimalist, short and really interesting.

Murder mystery courtroom drama set on an interplanetary spacecraft.
Adventure

An experimental detective game... set in space! Has a cool minimalist art style and lots of sarcastic humor. It's a bit confusing, but on the whole it's a very satisfying experience. The classical soundtrack fits perfectly.

EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK is a nihilistic horror comedy zine-game about life

A collection of darkly comedic mini-games about living with depression after the loss of a loved one. I admit that I didn't quite "get" everything, but I respect it for presenting a personal story to the world.

Will you write the way into her heart?
Visual Novel

What starts out as a normal dating sim for filthy weebs turns into so much more. Definitely more style than substance, but it's just the right length. The trigger warnings are not jokes by the way.

1 Ship. 2 Girls. 15 Cows.
Visual Novel

A space outlaw simulator. It's silly, it's cute, it's short, and the titular pair bounce off each other wonderfully.

Created by Dan Sanderson

A minimalist horror game about how shitty a nuclear apocalypse would be. Unnerving not due to cheap jump-scares but due to a great atmosphere. The level design is clever but overly confusing at parts.

Platformer

...is this memes? Is this art? Is this satire? This game asks the important questions. Fair warning, it is pretty trippy and epileptic.

I never knew I wanted a cruedly drawn sitcom walking simulator until now

Cyberpunk Bartender Action
Visual Novel

This game came from the heart. It has a multitude of personal stories, engaging dialogue and extremely likable characters. It's my game of 2016.

GIF
A soft-boiled cyberpunk adventure
Adventure

A 30-minute parody of adventure games, cyberpunk, millennials and internet culture. Intentionally cringe-inducing and annoying, but surprisingly well voice-acted and animated.

GIF
The law! Watch your back, Train Bandit.
Action

It's One Finger Death Punch. On a moving train. Take my money.

GIF
A short, humorous and experimental murder mystery game with a focus on deduction and theatrics.
Puzzle

A first person whodunit simulator. Drunk-solve a murder on a train full of exaggerated characters. While it is a bit glitchy, it's a great little funny experiment.

a game about news cycles, vicious cycles, infinite cycles
Play in browser

A 10-minute game about constant news cycles, the media, and how it affects people. Like COSim2014, from the same dev, it's simple but powerful.

GIF
a half-true story about half-truths
Play in browser

A powerful game about what it feels like to come out as bi to strict parents. Simultaneously tongue-in-cheek but deeply emotional and personal.

GIF
Sign In again.

Teen drama told through late-90s-early-00s AIM nostalgia. Writing could be polished a bit and your choices don't mean much, but the novelty of its chat client make it worth it.

A 15 minute experimental heist game

A 15 minute heist game about heists and also video games

A short, linear, pseudo-rpg game where the Hunted becomes the Huntress.
Role Playing

A violent coming-of-age story based on Little Riding Hood. While it's on the easy side (and intentionally so), the plot is contained and interesting, and the art style is beautifully minimalist.
