1. The Impossible Stairs
by Mathbrush
(2022)
Average member rating: (7 ratings)

David Welbourn says:

In this puzzling game, you play as CJ, a young woman at her family home who gets a list of chores in an odd way. Did you forget that you have spatio-temporal disjunction? That is, whenever you go upstairs, you go 20 years into the future, and whenever you go downstairs, you go back 20 years into the past, aging or de-aging as appropriate.

2. The Bony King of Nowhere

David Welbourn says:

In this game, you play as a Northerner living a quiet life in your hovel with your faithful dog, Dylan. When you step outside, a foul-mouthed pigeon drops a letter at your feet, but when you look at it, you learn to your dismay that it's addressed to the Bony King of Nowhere who lives far to the south, and that you must now deliver the letter personally to the King or be executed. Well that's just perfect.

3. FORK: The Great Underground Dining Room, by Chris Federico (2007)

David Welbourn says:

In this large puzzle game, you play as someone on vacation who enjoys old video games, especially Atari and Commodore ones. Therefore, you're at a games convention in this odd hotel, looking for adventure. Explore far enough and who knows what you'll find? Maybe you'll even have dinner with some old friends.
CAUTION: Many read-author's-mind moments.

In this tiny adventure, you play as a grue, lurking in your lair. It is pitch black. Your goal is simple: eat a tasty adventurer.

6. In the Spotlight, by John Byrd (1998)
Average member rating: (6 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this tiny one-room puzzler, you are someone whose vision fades while at the computer. The remaining light condenses into a spotlight high above you. All you can see are two dangling strings, a pair of heavy scissors, a wad of cotton, and a matchbook.

7. A Masochist's Heaven, by The Mad Monk (2002)
David Welbourn says:

In this tiny game, you play as a masochist in Heaven, and you don't like it. You want pain! You want suffering! Find a way to get kicked out of Heaven and into Hell where you belong.

In this game based on the board game Clue, you play as an investigator summoned to Tudor Mansion to do one last job for Rick Mortis. Unfortunately, you'll be solving his murder. Who did it where with which weapon? A random solution each time you play.

9. Perilous Magic, by David Fillmore (1999)

In this very short fantasy game based on a comment in the Enchanter manual, you play as a civil servant. You need to triplicate a report in the next half hour, but you're all out of paper.
