Games Worth Checking Out

a collection by metalsnail · last updated 2019-06-30 18:37:50

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.
