Games featured in This Twitter Thread I made. Will be updated as necessary.
There are a wide variety of game styles here, some are heavy narrative, some only have mechanics, some are face-paced twitch games, some are slower meditative ones, some last 5 minutes, some last hours, some are expensive, some are free.
I have played (But not necessarily finished) every one of these. They all have a certain level of polish and I think they are all good and interesting. I also think you should try some of them, even if they aren't your cup of tea. Maybe you'll find a new cup of tea.
A minimalist roguelike dueling card game. It uses AP which you keep from round to round, allowing for some tricky choices. Each enemy type feels very different as well.
A quirky, turn-based, party dungeon crawl. Has a bunch of hand crafted levels, which I wasn't expecting.
A one-button game inspired by LCD games of yore.
A retro platformer with some juicy colours. Bop some things with a hammer, fight some bosses, collect some crystals, find some secrets, etc.
A short platformer with a focus on speedrunning that gives you a bubble gun as a tool to find creative solutions.
An unsettling visual story about a new relationship and bizarre skin conditions.
A physics puzzle game that wouldn't feel out of place on Jayisgames in 2005.
An adorable adventure game, full of sassy characters in the style of a JRPG.
A spooky game about being left alone in a cabin on the prairie.
A ninja-fueled heist platformer where you have limited resources to complete an assassination in a short time window.
A minimalist parkour sim with a very mysterious vibe.
A couch co-op pacman clone about a bank robbery spree. Has room to explore levels and plan out ideal routes.
A neat roguelike with limited time and a gashapon system to gain new items and monsters.
A period piece and laid back racing game about normal people's reactions in uncertain times.
A top-down shooter where you cobble together laser guns out of parts on an alien planet.
A puzzle box game where you rotate objects until they miiiiight be something else, and then they suddenly are.
A visual novel about being a fantasy anthropologist. You can play through the game as one of three different characters, which gives you different insights into what you find.
A slice of life journal game with an interesting core mechanism.
A short interactive narrative that lets you play through a tense and intimate situation from the perspective of both people involved.
Visit your friend while they aren't feeling well and annoy them by poking all of their things.
A game about internet fan culture in the early 2000s.
A dungeon crawler where you grow in attachment to your weapons, and armor, and can trade them in for health. The more attached you are to an item, the better it is, but the more health it's worth.
A neat retro platformer with a lot of good "Juice" and a fun character-swapping mechanism.
A game where you change the shape of the level by changing the soundtrack.
