1. The Bible Retold: The Bread and the Fishes, by Justin Morgan and Celestianpower (2006)
Average member rating: (7 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this Biblical tale, you play as Jesus. A crowd of five thousand people have gathered in a field outside the town of Bethsaida to hear you preach, but they're all very hungry. It would take a miracle to feed this many people, but since you're the son of God, you might find a way to do that. But how, exactly?

2. The Man in the Rain, by Karl Adamson (2010)
David Welbourn says:

In this adventure game which is also a tribute to the music of Mike Oldfield, you play as a young warrior on a quest. Your tribe's queen is dying. Go to peak of Mount U'huru, far to the north, and ask the Wise Man who lives there for his aid.

David Welbourn says:

In this rather odd game, you play as someone who wakes up disorientated inside a deserted aeroplane in mid-flight. Where is everyone? Is the pilot gone too? Where is the plane headed? Why are you even there? All you know for sure is that you must get off this plane.

4. Aesthetic Deletions, by Johanna Hunt (2003)

David Welbourn says:

In this fantasy game written in an hour, you play as a prince who must prove his love for a princess by bringing her an orc's head, a goblin's rib bone, and a diamond the exact same size as a golf ball. Only then can you be together with the princess in her tower.

6. All Quiet on the Library Front, by Michael S. Phillips (1995)
Average member rating: (14 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

by Katherine Farmar
(2021)
Average member rating: (9 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this short game about introspection, you play as someone walking along a long gravel road bordered by hedges. You don't seem to be getting anywhere. Your satchel contains a hope, a belief, a regret, a memory, a fear, and a resentment.
