(this is a) META game!
Bloody Monkey

Games are made of rules.
Every other game makes you follow its rules. In this game, finding rules is the game.
It's as simple as reaching the high score. But you don't know how to score a single point.
Based on a essential but fun arena shooter, (this is a) META game! changes on every level its rules.
You will try to shoot enemies... Nothing. You will try to grab bonuses... Nothing... Have you already tried to shoot bonuses?
Rules are made to be broken, but you have to know them, first.

40 Stories
Chico State Game Studios

40 Stories is a puzzle game where you must create duplicates of yourself to escape 40 challenging floors. In 40 Stories, you play as Anita Hent, a disgruntled technical support employee who is on a mission to leave her office. In Anita’s haste, she runs into the Megalomaniacal Professor Darius McDoogle, who zaps her with his reality altering Quantum Stabilizer, which then gives Anita the power to clone herself using copy machines. Anita must now traverse her ever changing building with the help of her very own Fanboy and escape McDoogle’s grasp.

8-Bit Commando
2DEngine.com

8-Bit Commando is a run and gun platformer with fast-paced action, a rocking soundtrack and explosions. The graphics will take you back to the classic age of gaming and the gameplay is bound to challenge even the most seasoned vets.

A House in California
Cardboard Computer

'A House in California' is a surreal, narrative game about four characters who bring a house to life. These four characters are based on relatives of mine (two grandmothers and two great-grandmothers). Within the game, the player guides the four characters to engage with environments and activities drawn from a combination of memory, research, poetry, and fantasy.

Aesthetically, the game draws inspiration from 'Mystery House', developed in 1980 by Roberta and Ken Williams. 'Mystery House' is a murder mystery that drives its characters progressively deeper into the titular house by offering the player material verbs such as "go", "open", and "take". 'A House in California' inverts these qualities of materiality and violent murder into a peaceful but surreal character study which draws the player into the inner lives of its four characters.

A Mobius Proposal
Matt Gilgenbach

A Mobius Proposal is a co-op puzzle platformer I created in order to propose to my girlfriend. Players are on opposite sides of a Mobius band, and they must work together in order to overcome obstacles. I incorporated the proposal in the game by displaying a fake low battery message and hiding the ring inside the battery pack of the controller.

A Monsteca Corral:Monsters vs. Robots
Onteca Ltd

No longer is the planet Monsteca the harmonious world it once was, overrun by a robotic army set out to rule and conquer. Monsteca natives, the Stompies, have no choice but to run or be captured. Unable to defend themselves against such heavy machinery, the Stompies must rely on the strength of their herd to work together and defeat the meddling robots.

You take control of the Stompies, cute and not so bright monsters, who once awoken, need help to avoid being captured by invading robots. It is your duty to guide them successfully through each level.

You guide the Stompies towards 'Energy Orb' bonuses to increase the communal power of the herd. With this energy, feed the Astromaggot who will fly them to safety.

* A fun, fully 3D strategy game with a strong sense of flow.
* Twenty levels to conquer with hours of gameplay.
* Achievement mode for added challenge.
* The only game with Astromaggots!

A New Zero
Cryptic Sea

A Virus Named Tom
Misfits Attic

Dr X brought the world the city of Tomorrow: with robot dogs, and houses that clean themselves. MegaTech promptly fired him as soon as the last chrome brick was laid. But Dr X has one final invention, a little virus named Tom. Help this little gremlin bring the city of Tomorrow back to the Stone Age by causing absolute mayhem throughout the city.

The game is an action-puzzler. The puzzle comes from rearrange circuits to spread the virus. The action comes from dodging anti-virus drones while doing it. It’s one of the few puzzle games out there where you can play cooperatively (with up to 3 friends). But if you tire of working together, there is a battle mode where you can take on your friends to see who is the supreme virus.

Achron
Hazardous Software Inc.

Achron is the first "meta-time strategy" game. It is a real-time strategy game where all players can simultaneously travel through time, change the past, preview the future, and send their forces through time to when they are needed. Did you make a mistake or start a battle you shouldn't have? You can go back in time and change history, but so can your opponents. You can rush your opponent with carriers from the future, but you need to watch out that your opponent doesn't destroy your factories and prevent your carriers from ever having been created in the first place! However,changing the past requires chronoenergy, and the further back in time you go, the more it costs to change the past.

Alcatraz
Irresponsible Games

Escape Alcatraz and make the Beat scene in 1954 San Francisco! A quirky, hard-boiled point-and-click adventure.
Play half the game as Joe, trying to find a way off the Rock. The other half is his wife, Christine, setting up things up on the outside for the big break. She's in the cool Beat world of poets, painters, junkies, and thieves. You can switch between the two leads at any time. By the end, you'll have dealt drugs, blackmailed a priest, murdered at least once, and possibly demolished a nightclub, depending on how you play. When husband and wife are finally reunited, have they changed too much? Can they trust each other? In a noir story, anyone can die at the end.
The whole shebang is pretty much created by one guy, who left EA after six years to make adventures.
Please note this is in-progress, and uses temp music and characters.
