Come play with us!
In this week’s post, I want to highlight a couple odd indie games I found on itch.io. As I might’ve mentioned before, I have the patience of a saint when it comes to games that have an intriguing story or theme. I’ve played through and completed every Sherlock Holmes game they’ve ever made (and they’re pretttty broken, y’all). I even played that one motion controlled Harry Potter game — I hated and loved every minute.
The games I’m talking about today are not broken. But they are a bit weird, and require a bit of patience. Goals are clear, but the path to them is not. Both rather quick games, I think I finished each in less than thirty minutes or so.
Hotel Paradise is a first-person exploration game that is reminiscent of P.T. and also being lost in real life — annoying, inconvenient, perhaps scary, probably fine. You find yourself in a nice-looking, plush-carpeted, strange-stock-photo-wall-art hotel (presumably the Hotel Paradise), and you have to find your room. That’s it. Good luck! Available for download on PC and Mac.
I’m Still Here is a spooky little game that I chose initially because I love and hate horror games. I am a total scaredy cat with an overactive imagination (no way) and I genuinely freak myself out on a daily basis. Yet there’s something so intriguing to me about ghosts and the paranormal/supernatural/other.
The beginning finds you in your new apartment, being haunted by the ghost of a past tenant! You must help them move into the light, so to speak, and do so by asking the internet questions stupid questions on your laptop #tooreal. Can you exorcise your new digs? Also available for PC and Mac.
And that’s it this week. Got a whole list of games to play — any that you think I should mention?
