Small Worlds

Small Worlds is a 2D exploration game created by David Shute, where the controls for your character can be a bit frustrating at times but everything else about the effort shines through. Even if you take all the wrong paths, this adventure is still a rather short one that will only take roughly about fifteen minutes of your time to complete.

Icy Tower  
Free Lunch DesignAction/Arcade5.26 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Icy Tower is another excellent release from Free Lunch Design. The story is about a homeboy named Harold, who discovers a mysterious tower that he feels strangely compelled to climb all the way to the top by jumping from platform to platform.

Movements are limited to left, right or jump. Execute a higher jump by running in one direction to gain momentum before pressing space. Chain double or triple jumps to activate combo mode and multiply your score. The screen will move upward constantly, and the game ends if you run out of platforms to land on.

The game can be customized by downloading additional characters to use from the site. Replays can be saved and shared among other players. Simple in design but extremely difficult to master.

In ASCIIpOrtal you can fire up to two portals with your hand-held portal device, then enter through one before coming out of the other for some mind-bending teleportation effect. Some of the puzzles in this 2D remake of Valve's Portal include manipulating switches using blocks, placing portals on the other side of chain links, dodging boulders before they crush you, and avoiding laser fields that will burn your flesh instantly on contact.

Links to binaries for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems all available from the Cymon's Games site.

Prototype  
X-0utShoot 'em up19.1 MBClick here to download

Don't be misled by the name, Prototype is no half-finished effort. Featuring a pod that you can use to direct your shots, the game only showcases one level but it's long enough satisfy most shooter veterans.

There are quite a number of power-ups to collect, which is always an added bonus.

Streemerz Flash  
The Podunkian, Arthur LeePlatformerBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Streemerz is a remake loosely based on an Action 52 game with the same name, featuring new art and music resources from Arthur Lee and Binbag McGraw. The story is now set sometime in the future, although the main character still uses streamers to scale walls or climb onto platforms. There are plenty of checkpoints for players to save their progress with, but they could be a few rooms apart by the time you're close to completing your mission.

Note that a load game option isn't available, so if you exit back to the main menu or quit the game you would have to replay the entire story mode from the beginning.

YahtzeeAdventure3.84 MBClick here to download

6 Days a Sacrifice is the fourth and final instalment of the John DeFoe series, which thus far has encompassed 5 Days A Stranger, 7 Days A Skeptic and Trilby's Notes.

Theo DaCabe, a surveying officer for Buckinghamshire County Council, is assigned to run a routine health and safety assessment on the headquarters of a fad religion called Optimology. Little does he realise that he is about to be caught up in the machinations of destiny, and a plot that has simmered for two centuries.

Facade  
- Windows, Mac
(mature content)
Michael Mateas, Andrew SternAdventure167 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Facade is an artificial intelligence experiment by Michael Mateas and Andrew Stern, an attempt to move beyond traditional branching or hyper-linked narrative to create a fully-realized, one-act interactive drama. Within this architecture they have built a dramatically interesting, real-time 3D virtual world inhabited by computer-controlled characters, in which the player experiences a story from a first-person perspective.

The character you play is a longtime friend of Grace and Trip, an attractive and materially successful couple in their early thirties. During an evening get-together at their apartment that quickly turns ugly, you become entangled in the high-conflict dissolution of Grace and Tripfs marriage. No one is safe as the accusations fly, sides are taken and irreversible decisions are forced to be made. By the end of this intense one-act play you will have changed the course of Grace and Tripfs lives, motivating you to re-play the drama to find out how your interaction could make things turn out differently the next time.

Somewhere between a video game and a drama, Facade takes advantage of voice acting and a 3-D environment, as well as natural language processing and other advanced artificial intelligence routines to provide a robust interactive fiction experience. Using full typed sentences the player can coach the couple through their troubles or drive them to be more distant from each other.

This work is unlike hypertext narrative or interactive fiction to date in that the computer characters actively perform the story without waiting for you to click on a link or enter a command. Interaction is seamless as you converse in natural language and move and gesture freely within the first-person 3D world of Grace and Tripfs apartment. AI controls Grace and Tripfs personality and behavior, including emotive facial expressions, spoken voice and full-body animation. Furthermore, the AI intelligently chooses the next story 'beat' based on your moment-by-moment interaction, what story beats have happened so far, and the need to satisfy an overall dramatic arc.

The player can take an active role in the conversation, pushing the topic one way or another to provide an interactive stage-play. These stage-plays are saved as scripts which can be saved after the game is finished.
