Nepenthe

Nepenthe is a narrative driven RPG drawn entirely in crayons. It was part of the itch.io bundle for racial justice and equality. Whilst browsing hundreds upon hundreds of games in the bundle, this one caught my eye because of the unique art style so I decided to give it a go.

Thing-in-Itself

If you recently purchased the itch.io bundle for racial justice and equality, you’ll probably be like me – completely confounded by the number of games you now own. I’ve picked out a few interesteing looking games to try out, starting with Thing-in-Itself.

There Is Nothing There / There Was Something Here

This post will cover both There Is Nothing Here and its sequel: There Was Something There. These are both by Adrian Dittrick and were recommended by him as I was a big fan of Prep School Horrors, and these games exist in the same universe.

Myth Bearer

Myth Bearer a low res RPG-style game developed by JC Bailey. It features a large open world with simple combat mechanics and it creatively turns travelling around into a puzzle.

Inspect by hovering the mouse over things and a tool tip will appear, telling you a little bit more information. You can interact with things by clicking on them when you are stood next to them. The game starts out with a little puzzle to teach you how to inspect and interact; you can’t leave through the door since you’re locked in, so you must find another way out.

In this post I’m doing a double feature where I’ll talk about both RydenWood and the new sequel; RydenWood: Deeper Than Before.

Retro Space Ball

Retro Space Ball is a mashup of a classic space shooter and pinball by Rik Oclon. It’s a pretty simple game where you control a spaceship which shoots a ball vertically upwards. In spite of it’s simplicity it has many creative ideas and it’s a lot tougher than it sounds!
