Calm yourself - move a mirror axis at the perfect position and teleport the drop in the centre of the target to create beautiful inkblots.

Fill the canvas with ink blots - move a mirror axis between the drop and the target. The mirror axis teleports the drop to the exact symmetric position on the other side of it.
Concentrate and take your time for adjusting the mirror axis, before you teleport the drop. Consider length, rotation and the distances between them, and try to aim for the target's centre.

The more accurate you hit, the bigger and more beautiful the blots you create will be. When you are satisfied with your work adjusting the mirror axis, transfer the dot's position by pressing the teleport-button.

Don't be careless, if you miss the target your drop gets partly soaked up by the paper until it fades away completely...

Huge companies like Uber gamify their applications to make contractors work longer for little reward, yet the juiciness and apparent ease of these systems are so strong they retain their workforce. MOLOCH (Zero) is a metafictional game: you are the applicant. When the game begins, you are faced with software designed to test your complacency.

The wurm has returned and it must feed! Shed your garments and paint the walls with the flesh of your enemies, for only one can be worthy of sacrifice.

The rules are simple. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry.

Sequel to the indie hit of 2014, Nidhogg 2 builds upon the award-winning gameplay of its predecessor with new weapons to wield and levels to master, head-to-toe character customization, and the captivatingly grotesque art of Toby Dixon.

And, with music from artists including Mux Mool, Geotic, Doseone, Osborne, and Daedelus, Nidhogg 2 has a soundtrack so good that even the menu screens are awesome.

The peasants of Nottingham bow under the weight of Prince John's taxes; nobles fall to the Sheriff's political machinations; deserters from the Crusades pillage the land; and fairies lure the unwary into the depths of mist-shrouded Sherwood Forest, never to be seen again. Step into the chaos of a magical England at the end of the Third Crusade. Maid Marian hides breathless amidst the brambles after the sack of her father's castle; Little John charges a bodyweight in gold to cross a lonely log; and Will Scarlet holds court in a brokedown tower surrounded by trees as tall as the sky, waiting for a king who will never come. The time is ripe, a spark is lit – from the ashes of your home, from the shadow of anonymity, step into legend. You are Robin Hood.

Nocked! is a lushly-illustrated, text-driven role-playing game playable for minutes or hours at a time. Define the deeds and identity of Robin Hood, outlaw of Sherwood Forest; recruit allies, forge alliances, find love; and chart a path between war, negotiation, and dangerous magics. Your choices are remembered and your actions shape the world, but you can't do it alone.

Story and strategy collide as your reputation spreads and Merry Men join your band: Build and expand a base in the hidden deeps, manage your earnings from raids on tax collectors, and prepare for the coming of the Sheriff of Nottingham. There is no sure and easy path to victory, no one decision that will save your resistance; will you fall beneath the Sheriff's boot heel, or will you build a movement to last the ages? The choice is yours.

Nokbak is a first-person multiplayer arena shooter... with a twist! Built for 3 to 8 players, players don't shoot to kill, but rather find themselves frantically trying to knock each other off of an arena in the sky. Set in a future where dinosaurs never went extinct, they've now evolved and developed their own professional sporting leagues, the most prominent being NOKBAK.

What makes NOKBAK unique is that anyone can win at any point in the game. We capitalized on the idea that it's not over till it's over. We mean it. Bounty Mode, a game mode in which you earn every KO'd player's points, is a core mechanic of this game and insures that even the player in last place can make a comeback. Even the top scoring players will have to watch their back! As players' scores grow exponentially, things get crazy quickly, even more so with lots of players.

Nongünz is a nihilistic action platformer which combines hectic shootouts with the management of a mysterious idle game.

Each run has the player parting from a black and white graveyard into an ever-changing gothic dungeon full of nightmares fleshed out of human viscera. Surviving this distraught roguelike will not only require skill but style, since in Nongünz rewards the player for long-lasting combos along with a variety of challenges and gameplay modifiers... moreover, score will play a key role in the progress of the mysterious idle game: the formation of your very own band of lost souls and death cultists.

As the world of Nongünz evolves, the player will find special characters that will inhabit their graveyard: praying cultists, self-scourging martyrs, somber gravediggers... These characters will provide special services such as shops, slot machines, dungeon shortcuts, and more; which will either help you widen your killing skills or improve the performance of the mysterious idle game built around the graveyard.

Nongünz aspires to seduce the player into a reflexion around the undeniable appeal of violence and the instincts behind accumulation of power and superiority. Hence its gritty black and white aesthetics; the omnipresence of flesh, bones and death; and the oppressing atmosphere of its dark environments and primal themes.

No score, no missions.
Roles are so fragile that could not withstand a blow.
Distinct enemies follow, mistakes no place.
Just watch carefully and hit out decisively.

* There are 6 buttons at the bottom of the screen. They are Attack, Skill, and Moves.
* Skill button could strengthen your next attack/skill/move for once.
* Move buttons could kick against the enemy next to you.
* The rest of the screen is the 7th button which could help you turn to the enemy.

* All roles live in square lattice.
* Enemies would move at the same time you move.
* The world would be static if you don't make any actions.
* You could touch only 1 button once. And every touch brings a 0.18 second cool down time.

* Looking for music maker.
