"Hunted and alone, a boy finds himself drawn into the center of a dark project."

Inside reminds us that you can find beauty in something, even if you will never fully understand it. Sensing and understanding do not necessarily come hand-in-hand. Even the information found beyond the surface is only a silhouette of the whole truth; this specific feeling of not knowing drives the player. Now, enjoy the endless thinking and expansion of your mind as you try to figure out who the boy is, what the project is about, and true meaning that the ending holds.


Rusty Lake Hotel

Genre: Adventure, Indie
Developer: Rusty Lake
Platforms: PC, Android, iOS
Release Date: 29 Jan, 2016
Price: $1.99

"We'll be having five dinners. Make sure everyone is worth dying for."

Rusty Lake Hotel is a mysterious room escape game. With hotel employees who never express their emotions, greedy and flashy customers, and a spooky Hotel, the various elements give the game a mysterious atmosphere. How will you serve your five customers? Make sure everyone is worth dying for.


To the Moon

Genre: Adventure, Indie, RPG
Developer: Freebird Games
Platforms: PC
Release Date: 1 Nov, 2011
Price: $9.99

"Change one thing, fulfill one wish."

To The Moon is a story of two doctors traversing backward through a dying man's memories to artificially fulfill his last wish. The beautiful music and compelling narratives will easily draw you into the game. It's quite startling when you consider that Kan Gao, Director & Designer of To The Moon, worked as both a Composer and Illustrator at the same time. Playing To The Moon almost feels like watching a series of animated movies.



Genre: Adventure, Indie
Developer: Alexander Bruce
Platforms: PC
Release Date: 1 Feb, 2013
Price: $19.99

"Even as the developer told me what the game was doing to mess with my brain,
It still succeeded in messing with my brain."

Antichamber is a unique puzzle game and is very difficult to define. You will find yourself placed in a Cube-like world where everything subverts your expectations at every step and around every corner. Griffin McElroy from Polygon said, "Antichamber is all about the harmless subversion of rules you don't realize you're being taught. Often, it isn't until after you recall one of Antichamber's lessons that you realize you've been taught it in the first place."
