MashPotatoAdventure3.89 MBClick here to download

A Cure for the Common Cold is a short AGS adventure game by Marina Siu-Chong, also currently developing The Hatmaker's Tale.

The story. After spending years as a starving artist, you've managed to catch the eye of a influential gallery director. He wants to see some new work, and you've got a terrible cold that is draining your creativity. You'd better find a cure for the common cold, and fast!

This game uses a Broken Sword point-and-click interface. Left-click to interact with a hotspot, or right-click to examine objects. Click on items in your inventory and then click on other objects to use them together.

Move the cursor to the top of the screen and click on the pop-up menu to access the save or load function. If you need a reminder of the game objectives, these can be found by clicking on 'The Cure', also on the pop-up menu.

In Molleindustria's Every Day the Same Dream, you play as a white-collar worker who goes through the same routine of driving to the office daily, but deep down inside his soul he harbours a yearning to take the path less travelled. This is where the story begins, as players try to figure out ways to break away from the monotony of adulthood life.

Made in under a week for the Experimental Gameplay's art game theme, Every Day the Same Dream is a short game that can be completed in under fifteen minutes or less.

NaaC  
Bloody MonkeyAction/Arcade10.6 MBClick here to download
(external link)

NaaC is a pretty good Smash TV clone with all the action focused in one room for the entire game. Aliens will barge through walls from the top of the screen, then left and right. Fortunately better weapons occasionally appear out of thin air, although ammo conservation is vital since they run out pretty fast.

Passage  
- Windows, Mac
Jason RohrerAdventure0.47 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Passage is an experimental project by Jason Rohrer which attempts to represent life in the span of five minutes. The choices that a player makes is crucial, and there's no right way to play Passage or interpret it.

Use the arrow keys to move the character up, down, left and right. Press the F key to toggle fullscreen mode, and use the B key to adjust screen blow-up factor. Press the Q key to quit.

In Passage, players can search for and open treasure chests. Not every pursuit leads to a reward - most of them are empty. Over time, though, you can can learn which pursuits are likely to be rewarding. Each treasure chest is marked with a sequence of gems on its front, and this sequence indicates whether the chest contains a reward. During the course of the game, you can learn to read these sequences and only spend your precious time opening worthwhile treasure chests.

Passage represents life's challenges with a maze. The screen geometry only allows you to view a narrow slice of this maze at any given moment. You can see quite a distance out in front of you, but you can't see anything to the north or south. You may see a reward up ahead but not be able to see a clear path to it. After a bit of exploration, you may discover that a seemingly-nearby reward is in fact unreachable. As you go deeper into the maze to the south, the path becomes more convoluted, though an obstacle-free route is always available to the north. However, treasure chests are more and more common as you go deeper into the maze. You can spend your time in pursuit of these hard-to-reach rewards, or you can explore and enjoy the scenery that unfolds before you to the east. As you grow older, your view of the territory in front of you shrinks, and navigating new areas in life's maze becomes more difficult.

The world in Passage is infinite. As you head east, you'll find an endless expanse of constantly-changing landscape, and you are rewarded for your exploration. However, even if you spent your entire lifetime exploring, you'd never have a chance to see everything that there is to see. If you spend your time plumbing the depths of the maze, however, you will only see a tiny fraction of the scenery.

You have the option of joining up with a spouse on your journey. If you missed her, she's in the far north near your original starting point. Once you team up with her, however, you must travel together, and you are not as agile as you were when you were single. Some rewards deep in the maze will no longer be reachable if you're with your spouse. You simply cannot fit through narrow paths when you are walking side-by-side. In fact, you will sometimes find yourself standing right next to a treasure chest, yet unable to open it, and the only thing standing in your way will be your spouse. On the other hand, exploring the world is more enjoyable with a companion, and you'll reap a larger reward from exploration if she's along. When she dies, though, your grief will slow you down considerably.

The rewards in Passage come in the form of points added to your score, and you have two options for scoring points - treasure chests, which give 100 points for each hit, and exploration, which gives double-points if you walk with your spouse. There's a pretty tight balance between these two options, there's no optimal choice between the two.

BrainSplode!  
Richard Edwards, Rust Red GamesPuzzle14.5 MBClick here to download

BrainSplode! is a physics-based puzzle game which puts you in control of a rocket launcher that can be used to fire missiles at pink-coloured brains. The objective here is to destroy all of the brains in the area (marked as green squares on the mini-map) so that you may progress to the next stage, where more brains await for their eventual annihilation at your hands.

You can use the marker in the red box to move the turret around, then click on the launch button to fire a missile. Projectiles bounce off yellow pads, and players can utilize rocket components like thrusters and parachutes to guide their missiles with more precision in latter stages.

Excavatorrr  
Hempuli, Arvi TeikariPlatformer1.34 MBClick here to download

In Excavatorrr you play as an adventurer who is searching for rare treasures in an unexplored network of caves, equipped with only a pickaxe and some starting items strewn on the floor. Maps are procedurally generated every time you start a new game, and you can only replenish items or offload treasures for cash back at the shop (press up at the entrance) on the surface.

An online high score submission feature is included, although you would need to add the game executable to your firewall exception list before your best scores can be submitted online.

Warning: Contains strong language and graphic scenes.

The White Chamber: International Edition is a new version of Studio Trophis' debut effort. Smaller than it's predecessor, it includes four new endings and voice acting as well.
