The Company of Myself is a moody little puzzle game where you play as a hermit and learn a little about his life. It focuses on story and tries to make you empathize with a made up character wearing a top hat. This unique platformer was inspired by other puzzle games, but still substantially unique in style, execution, and puzzle design.

Swarm Racer is another Ludum Dare competition entry by lexaloffle, creator of Zen Puzzle Garden and Neko Puzzle. The objective of the game is to guide a swarm of bugs to collect all gems in each level. This is achieved by using the cursor keys for directional movement and the Z or X key to change bug formation.

Get all gems before the time limit expires to progress. Certain tiles have different characteristics, all conveniently outlined with sparse but fairly complete instructions found in the main menu.

Hoshi Saga 2 is a sequel to the popular brain teaser by Yoshio Ishii, in which players have to discover the star cleverly hidden in each of the thirty-six stages by using unconventional methods.

GalPaniX

D5Action/Arcade15.2 MBClick here to download

Undoubtedly one of the best Qix clones on the PC, the only drawback to be found in Gal Pani X is the use of suggestive images as backgrounds. The gameplay involves drawing lines to uncover parts of a picture while trying to avoid collision with enemy projectiles.

A player has to reveal at least eighty percent of the silhouette to complete the main objective. Most bosses have attack patterns which resemble those found in classic scrolling shooters as well. Difficult to recommend due to it's subject matter but as a freeware remake this is definitely one for the collection.

Vanguard Princess

Sugeno TomoakiAction/Arcade167 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Vanguard Princess is a freeware versus fighting game created with Enterbrain's 2D Fighter Maker engine, featuring the sort of quality normally reserved for full-price commercial releases. There are ten playable characters to choose from, an assortment of special moves distinct to each combatant, excellent sprite work, creative costume designs, and even a multiplayer mode that is unfortunately limited to just two people playing on the same computer with no online capabilities. Depending on your interest in the genre you could still squeeze out an hour's play or two from it, although the end sequence for every character is practically the same.

The game will only work on Windows operating systems which can read names of files and folders in Japanese, or those that already have the Japanese language pack already installed. You can switch between full screen and windowed mode by using the left Alt and Enter key, while the button configuration option is accessible via the menu bar.

MSOIDS Flash is a simple arcade shooter with the mouse and keyboard implemented as part of it's control scheme. Use the W, A, S and D keys to move. Rapid fire is activated by holding down the left mouse button, though this is only temporary as shot frequency begins to whittle down when used for a prolonged period of time. Press the space key to change colors. An online high score submission feature is included.

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.

BernieAdventure4.70 MBClick here to download

Warning: May contain potentially provocative or offensive material.

Reactor 09 is the latest AGS adventure game by Bernie in which you assume the role of a prison janitor originally convicted of murder. Much like the Monkey Island series, a verb coin is used for interaction with objects or other characters.

The story is rather short but there are four endings to discover, each with a different set of requirements to fulfil.

Knytt Stories  
NifflasPlatformer38.7 MBClick here to download

Knytt Stories is a prequel to the similarly titled platformer which was released recently to critical acclaim by the indie game community. This time around there are four worlds of varying sizes to explore, all accessible from the start with their own respective save slots. Anyone familiar with controls from Knytt would feel right at home here, though the author was generous enough to introduce several new abilities as well for the veterans to discover.
