This is a great example for an abusive game which does not try to appeal but has been made to vent. Two voices fight each other, and as so often in the Bitsyverse, the subject is self-worth and depression.

This is an interesting role-playing experiment. The player is put in the role of a bot tasked with categorising obscure data files from an expedition. What little information we get is ambivalent, so one is left to guess how to categorise it. This is how a neural network must feel these days...

Everything is gone.

A sombre archeology game about loss, family relationships, and failing attempts to excavate complete answers. Much of the game is exploring spaces, lots of non-interactive characters, and an open ending.

A poetic memento moth-ri game. Moody, atmospheric, and magical.

What stands out about this poem is its simplicity, almost musical rhythm and repetitions which creates significant depth. Recommended with the soundtrack, which is perfectly matched to the game.

This almanac features a complex political universe, its own obscure language, and requires lots of planning, exploration, and trial and error to survive. It is, after all, a eugenics game.

A very short game about an archaeologist.

A short tribute to Lara Croft, acknowledging her work as an archeologist. Teaches players that archeology requires careful, rigorous attention to detail and, perhaps, a redressing of colonial entitlement.

Bitsy can be used as a presentation format, as shown in this game.

A story with visually splendid, conceptually rich, well-written characters. Demonstrates Bitsy as a comic-style progressive narrative on yearning, fear, attachment, and loss.

A short surreal horror game about the things that might exist beneath the kelp.

This is a dream-like journey into your self. It identifies as a horror game, but I experienced it as alluring and beautiful.

A traversal of hyper-gendered places which pose more questions than they answer: Ambiguous landmarks - half train wrecks, half stunning nature, half cemetery. But where is the promised palace?
