Agatha Ragata
Oxeye Game Studio

Once upon a time, the mailman dropped of a letter at Agatha Ragata's little cottage...

"Arrr! What's this? Expelled from the society?! Those pathetic little babies have finally lost it! I'll show them!"

And Yet It Moves
And Yet It Moves Team

Yes, you can jump and run but you can also rotate! To be more specific you can rotate the world in steps of 90 degrees. This obviously has an impact on your environment: a wall will be a floor, a tunnel can suddenly be used as a downward slide and a resting stone might fall and turn into a dangerous trap or a useful object to throw around.
But don�t worry you, as well as the rest of the world, are made out of paper. So even if you rip apart you will just be put back together and you can try again.
Use the ability to rotate and its physical consequences wisely to overcome falling stones and deadly lizards in the Cave, fly high on bamboo trampolines and pass aggressive monkeys in the Jungle to finally master the abstract challenges of the hallucinogenic Trip. If you are smart enough to finish all the levels, then perfect your rotation skills to beat the global highscores.

The full play version contains game-score, interactive set up with performance instructions and rehearsal parts. SYNPOSIS: Silas has come home to die; only, he has not chosen his family but Warren and Mary's farm. As Frost poignantly puts it 'Home is the place where, when you have to go there, They have to take you in.' In this musical adaptation of Robert Frost's The Death of the Hired Man, the flutist navigates Warren and Mary's farm under a full moon "filling down the west, dragging the whole sky with it to the hills." There is an openness, a somberness, a sense of something pending as the performer assumes the role of Silas finding and baling hay- the one activity Silas can ba...

Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden
Tales of Game's Studios

The Great B-Ball Purge of 2041, a day so painful to some that it is referred to only as the "B-Ballnacht". Thousands upon thousands of the world's greatest ballers were massacred in a swath of violence and sports bigotry as the game was outlawed worldwide.

Bleating Sheep Theater Drinking With God
Bleating Sheep Productions

If fourty-hour RPGs and classic Adventure Games are story-gaming’s answer to Hollywood’s epic films, and the more recent offerings from Telltale and Hothead corrispond to episodic television, then Bleating Sheep Theater endevors to be the video game equivalent of vaudeville and the seven-minute animated short. (This, perhaps, does not bode well for Bleating Sheep Theater, as neither vaudeville nor the animated short have been financially viable for decades.) “Drinking With God” is the first in a hopeful series of self-described long-winded, quasi-interactive, unfunny comedy sketches.

From The Depths


Coil is an experimental "art" game that plays out more like a song or painting then an actual "game". I was basically trying to create an experience that put the player into an open minded space and let them question not only what the game was about, but what a game can actually be.

The game is best experienced without any direction or description and was designed to be something people would stumble across without knowing anything about it. If you haven't played coil yet please dont read the spoiler and play the game first. if you get stuck or want to know more about the game then by all means read it. i just personally think you will get more out of what i was trying to do if you play the game from an untainted perspective.

Coil uses mouse movements only, no keys or clicking is involved at all.




Coil is a game with no instruction or clear direction. The theory behind this is that the ...
