(Four Letter Word) (Terry Cavanagh)

?

!i (Not I) (David Williamson)

!¡, pronounced Not I, is a classic artillery game with a twist. Literally! Each team exist in the inverted space of the opposing team. When a shot blows a hole in the terrain of one team land is create in the other's space. The aim is to angle your shots in order to destroy the oppositions team. It is intended for two players, but there is a one player mode.

0Space (Teknopants)

2-4 player zero gravity death-match game with an acid sci-fi aesthetic

14locks (Bart Bonte)

Can you unlock all 14 locks?
Look around using your mouse or trackpad, move forward or backward using the cursor keys.
Explore your enviroment and click the correct 3-digit code on the keypad on the door in each room.


1D (EBS Gaming)

With using only one dimension, and two buttons for gameplay, 1D is a simple and fun game, which is also surprisingly complex. The game itself does not contain any form of text, aside from numbers and the name of the game “1D”.
Pulses come from both sides in a one-dimensional world and it is up to you to cancel them out, with out being canceled out yourself, as you continuously move back and forth. When the avatar is black it can cancel blue pulses and when it is green it can cancel red pulses.

6th Planet (Monkube)

6th Planet is a fusion between classic arcade game and a full, 188 screen comic book (the fusion thing is kinda our 'thing'). For our first game we aimed at re-inventing the 'Lunar Lander' genre, by making a game with those core gameplay mechanics as cool as it can be. Professional sound track (with an artist, Microscopic, that also did music for Osmos), a story co created by an movie studio that holds two Oscar nominations for best animated film (Vivifilm) and created by people who work on big budget animated films (the line-art) and do coloring for Marvel (our colorist did also does Wolverine for them) But above all, 30 fun single player levels and a massive 50 Master Levels.

A Closed World (Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab)

Have you ever been so frustrated, so fed up with where you are, that you just want to throw it all away and run off to somewhere new? In A Closed World you play as a young person who has decided to do exactly that. This console RPG-like game puts you in the shoes of a young resident of a village just outside a forest that everyone says is a place of no return. Supposedly home to hungering demons and a beast that would destroy the village, the forest is forbidden and nobody knows what's on the other side. However, our hero's beloved -- tired of the oppressive attitude of the villagers -- decided to go there, as anywhere would be better than home. Now it's your turn to follow after. Are you willing to risk everything to find out what's on the other side?

A Day In The Woods (RetroEpic Software)

Little Red Riding Hood is enjoying A Day In The Woods while making her way to her grandmother’s cottage. Little does she know that the woods can be confusing and is full of danger, but luckily she has a helpful wood sprite to show her the way!

A Game With Balls (Puppy Punch Productions)

The use of a spheroid object in play is believed to date back to the beginning of human history. Games involving balls appear pictorially on Egyptian monuments, while there is evidence that the Greeks and Romans used ball-like objects in simple contests. All of which, of course, has merely been a lead-up to the release of A Game With Balls.

A New Zero (Cryptic Sea)

A New Zero is a vehicle combat simulation.

A Valley Without Wind (Arcen Games)

Take command of survivor settlements. Scout surrounding areas for rare crafting materials and fend off invaders in the turn-based strategic overlay. Improve resident productivity and quality of life through the city-building interface at each settlement.

Bring to life an infinite amount of charac...

All 4 One (Critical Gameplay)

"All for one and one control for all"

The game is an action-puzzler, where the player must navigate multiple robots to various exits. Each robot is controlled by the same set of arrow keys or gamepad buttons, so a movement left moves all robots left. The robots begin in synch, but any physical contact throws the robot out of synch. Any time a robot hits a wall or another robot, it becomes damaged. Damage the robot too much and it will be destroyed.
Points are awarded for getting as many robots as possible through exits.
All 4 One is a reflection on the notion of simultaneous benefit, asking the player to think about consequence globally. It about trying to think about simultaneous ramifications.

Alone (Infinite Ammo Inc.)

A child wakes up.
Listens for a whisper, a sigh, a cough, a cry.
The child is alone.
Only the scuttling of tiny limbs, the distant creak of wood.
The child puts on a mask.
A face to hide behind, a name for the nameless.
The child steps blinking into the empty house.
The soft padding of slipper’d feet and the bounce of a ball.
Companion to naught but the creatures that inhabit the night.
There are faint breaths seeping in through the walls
A pale rustle of life echoing from beyond

Where have they gone?
The child descends into the dark
