One Night Stand

developed by Kinmoku  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux

“One Night Stand thrusts you into a “morning after” scenario where you decide how things play out.

“After a night of fun, passion, and one too many drinks, you awake to discover a complete stranger lying naked beside you in bed.

“With only hazy memories of what happened last night, explore a stranger’s bedroom in search of clues and try and piece together the truth. You may resort to some unusual methods to find your answers, but take care not to prod and pry too much though – a nosy guest quickly becomes an unwanted one!”

VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action

developed by Sukeban Games  |  Platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux

“A booze em’ up about waifus, technology, and post-dystopia life. Its main mechanic consists in preparing drinks using the available ingredients, but rather than just following an order to advance through the story, it’s up to the player to decide what kind of drink to serve.

“In short, this is about serving the right drink, and you achieve this by paying attention to your client’s rants. Rewards include different events, dialogues and endings.”

“You start as a boy in a rural village, looking to escape your nation. Along the way, you face family death, fall into depression, and interact with others. Helping someone with an item lets you discover their unique story. With your and their stories combined, you discover the full extent of propaganda, poverty, and tyranny that dominates your nation.”

“Suppressed’s goal is to entertain while educating. Those who play will hopefully be more aware of what is happening in North Korea.”

An interactive horror story which is a retelling of  The Whisperer in Darkness, a short story by H.P. Lovecraft.  There isn’t much in the way of gameplay, and it’s more of an atmospheric way to experience a horror novel (with really nice art, and music).

It was made for the Public Game Jam in 2014, and all the assets are open source and free to use.  You can download them, as well as the game from itch.io.  It’s available for PC, and is currently being rewritten for Mac and Linux.
