can we just
remember when i drew this
still getting paid to draw silly pictures
I make excellent financial decisions
No One Has To Die: Talking will spoil it from the start. Amazing concept and brilliant ending. Takes about 20 minutes to complete, browser game.
Off: You’ve probably already seen bits all over tumblr from this (as well as bits, if you know what I mean ;]); French game that starts with a strange man “purifying” ghosts from a world with weird rules and elements; quickly becomes a twisted, confusing ride. At least worth a play, and you should probably check out an LP afterwards (I sure did). Takes a few hours.
The Grey Rainbow: Don’t be thrown by the art - this game may start off in a fairly usual RPG manner, but the story, though short, will draw you in and may even make you cry. Make sure to check all flavor text. Takes about an hour.
The Color Tuesday RPG (TCT): Starts off with kids randomly chosen to save the world/town/whatever, like many RPGs, but actually takes a look at the burden placed on the protagonists. Interesting if sometimes frustrating combat system, a compelling story, and an almost laughable but actually rather tragic spin on the weird rules of many RPG worlds. Beautiful in every sense and left me wanting more. Takes a few hours - LOTS OF FLASHING, epileptics take care! Make sure to play with the sound on.
Bastion: If you haven’t played this yet, I’m already judging you. But seriously, it’s an incredibly beautiful and heart-wrenching game with wonderful sound, graphics, and story. Most definitely play with the sound on, and buy the damn soundtrack. The only non-free game on this list, but well worth it. Takes a few hours, very streamlined story.
EDIT: Feel free to add your own!
Sequence: While not exactly a psychological game like the others, it has a very interesting premise. Bit of a dance game-RPG-visual novel mashup, with an intriguing storyline. Gorgeous art, hilarious dialogue, and fun music. Might take a few more hours than some of the other games, but well worth it.
