Home Behind 2
To start, we have a sequel to the cool RPG adventure. Home Behind 2 takes place in Scaria, a repressive country in the middle of a civil war. It’s your job to lead a group of revolutionaries, overthrow the government, and bring peace. To do this, you will recruit various guerilla fighters with unique skills. Home Behind 2 features randomly generated levels and engaging real-time combat that can be paused for strategizing. If you like guns, epic fights, and roguelike RPGs, this game will be worth your time.
SuchArt: Creative Space
SuchArt is a refreshing simulator that gives you your own art studio. There are 3 rooms at your disposal, and there’s no limit to what you can do with them. Painting is very realistic, and each brush gives you different capabilities. However, you can also go full experimental, and use knives, stencils, and flamethrowers to bring out your inner vision. Once done, why not go to the marketplace, sell your paintings, and buy even more tools for exploration? In short, Creative Space is an amazing free alternative to Genius Artist that can keep you entertained for months.
Mad Games Tycoon 2
It’s the year 1976, and you are about to start your own game studio. Can you rise in the competitive environment and make your company a successful corporation? Mad Games Tycoon 2 looks much better than the original, letting you follow through each step of game creation in much greater detail. In it, you can create and port your own games, make new consoles, manage your employees, and there’s even a multiplayer mode. All in all, this is a deep and realistic game simulator that can easily take huge chunks out of your day.
Who Needs a Hero?
Next, we have a casual medieval RPG that’s brimming with personality. Set in the kingdom of Grimar, you will take the role of a dumb warrior who decides to save his land from monster attacks. In Who Needs a Hero, all of your choices will affect the story, fame, and the amount of gold you earn. Battle mechanics is simple but effective, and the game is filled with hilarious moments. Although not one of the most technical RPGs, Who Needs a Hero brings a fun twist on the genre.
Lastly, we have a stylish pixel art indie by the name Detective Story. In it, you are transported into an idyllic town Sherwood, to solve the mystery behind the series of murders. To do this, you will have to keep your eyes open, interview various suspects, and escape from deadly mazes. The game has an engaging storyline that will keep you interested till the end. If you are looking for a short but powerful indie, Detective Story definitely fits the bill.
