1. Waystation
by Stephen Granade
(1995)
Average member rating: (1 rating)

David Welbourn says:

In this old-school puzzle game, you wake up in a cell after a blinding blue light from the sky engulfs you. If you can escape your prison, you may discover waystations that can teleport you to other planets. But everywhere you go is plaqued with death, destruction, and decay. Is nowhere safe and good? Is there any way you can escape or fix any of this?

2. Our Island, by Patrick Williams (2013)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this whimsical game, you play as a resident of the island. Walk around in nothing but a bathing suit, swim, and eat snacks. It's mostly a slice of life exploration game with some fantasy bits sprinkled in. But if you're very diligent indeed, you can eventually acquire four elemental items and use them to free the spirit of Hope!

3. IF Progressive One, by Sarah Morayati, Rick Dague, Dan Shiovitz, Carl Muckenhoupt, Marius Müller, Mark J. Musante, and Tom Blawgus (2009)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
David Welbourn says:

This chaotic game was written by six authors sequentially, each author only adding to the game as written so far. It all begins with you as a kindergarten teacher in your classroom after all the kids have gone home. You're about to clean up their horrific mess when a gaudy balloon floats in through the window and stops to hover right in front of your face.

4. Underground, by Phlegethon (2019)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this lighthearted cave exploration game, you play as someone who was sleeping in their bed at home and woke up in a cave and carrying a rucksack. And there's a lantern nearby. You've had dreams about a cave like this. You should go explore it.

5. Castaway, by Conrad Knopf (1986)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this introductory game, you start adrift in the Coral Sea near a deserted island. You were the first mate of a cargo ship until it sank, but now you're a castaway. You have two goals: get rescued and find as much treasure as you can before you go.

6. Cold Iron, by Andrew Plotkin (as Lyman Clive Charles) (2011)
Average member rating: (35 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this small game, you play as a farmer. It's now time to chop the wood, but your good axe is missing. The piskeys must have stolen it. Better take Reverd Pearson's book of tales with you when you go piskey-hunting. You can't explain why you need the book, but you know it's true.

7. Earl Grey, by Rob Dubbin and Allison Parrish (2009)
Average member rating: (27 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this small surreal wordplay game, you are visiting Eaves in his secret garden to help prepare for the biggest tea party of the year. It's a dream come true until you anger your host with a frivolous knock and he summons your new nemesis, the dread Earl Gry.

8. The Wolf and the Seven Kids, by Moritz (2012)
Average member rating: (1 rating)
David Welbourn says:

In this short sparsely-implemented adaptation of the fairy tale, you play as the wolf. Your goal is to get into the house and eat all seven kids.
