Being trapped in dark water is a pretty common fear. Narcosis combines that with claustrophobia, arachnophobia and traditional monsters to create one heck of a scary, narrative type of horror game experience.
More of an experience than just a game, The Mooseman draws heavily on tribal cultures and ancient wisdom to create a truly unique, and at times breathtaking, experience where videogames meet and embrace art.
Lust for Darkness lives up to its namesake, blending intense sexual themes with Lovecraftian horror. It pulls no punches, but while at times can be jarring and certainly uncomfortable, the game never feels unreasonably gratuitous or insulting to the player.
Extinction puts players in the role of a roguish hero trying to defend his homeland against a hoard of ravenous, giant monsters. He does this by climbing up their bodies and crushing their heads. It’s all very Attack on Titan-eske, but pretty fun for an RPG with a twist.
Turmoil is one of the most interesting and fun business type simulations to come out in a long time, with more than enough content and style to justify AAA pricing, but is nonetheless easily available for gamers on a budget.
Looking for a little exciting multiplayer combat? Try doing it while piloting a seemingly inebriated rocket ship pulled from the cells of a 1950s sci-fi movie. Rocket Wars is a frustrating but fun exercise in chaotic combat.

Both beautiful and challenging, Rain World is a hauntingly beautiful side-scroller that deals with heavy issues such as morality, loss and the value of family. It’s a dangerous world, but worth the journey.
