Since itch.io is full of very interesting personal games, I thought it would be the best place to post something like this. I would love to learn more about the subject myself, so suggestions are welcome! :)
This is meant as a comprehensive list to help game developers make "personal games" (loose term for games that focus on autobiographical experiences). Some of these links relate to experimental and innovative games more broadly. Hope you find them useful! :) Big thank you to everyone that contributed <3
EDIT 23.12.17: removed two links in Where to begin? that weren't working anymore.
