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.
A collection of darkly comedic mini-games about living with depression after the loss of a loved one. I admit that I didn't "get" every metaphor, but I greatly respect it all for presenting a deeply personal story.
What starts out as a normal dating sim
for filthy weebs turns into so much more. The trigger warnings are not jokes. It does actually turn quite serious, while having some interesting tricks up its sleeve.
A space outlaw simulator. It's silly, it's cute, it's short, and the titular pair bounce off each other wonderfully.
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.
...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
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.
A 30-minute parody of adventure games, cyberpunk, millennials and internet culture. Intentionally cringe-inducing and annoying, but surprisingly well voice-acted and animated.
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 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.
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.
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 heist game about heists and also video games
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.
