An epic sci-fi shoot 'em up with a similar aesthetic to Halo. The massively multiplayer game has you scrambling around a dystopian landscape fighting for territory.
Based on the online comic Mr Smoozles, this was the first indie game released by the award- winning writer and developer Steve Ince. It was originally a paid-for game, but Ince decided to release it for free in 2011.
Terrifying stuff. This is one of those games that are just so eerily quiet you'd jump if someone came into the room while you were playing it. The artful indie horror game involves wandering around a forest collecting pages armed only with a flashlight, while avoiding the "Slender Man" who is perpetually chasing you through the fog.
There are a ton of brain-numbing golf games on the web, but none as beautiful as this one.It is colourful, clean and creative. You should play it to appreciate the graphic design as much as the game itself.
Available online as well as for iPad, this is a fun arcade sports game that combines bumper cars with football. Possibly one for the retro game geeks out there.
The super addictive Yeti sports collection is a true Olympiad of online mini-games, which can also be downloaded as apps. Highlights include Albatross Overload and Scrat Jump. Almost all of them involve throwing a penguin as far as you can.
If only learning science at school could have been this fun. Use crayons to solve puzzles on a piece of paper and experiment with your drawings that come to life according the rules of physics.
One of many tranquil online games by designer Ferry Halim. In this one you are a joyous cat bounding through a field with pastel-coloured bubbles floating overhead. All you have to do is jump on the bubbles. It is as blissful as it is relaxing, five minutes of playtime is like therapy.
Hypnotically immersive, this simple, yet multi-award winning game is the result of one student's academic game design thesis.
Put down that baseball bat, this is not your usual zombie massacre arcade game. Instead, this strategy game is set in the aftermath and you need to survive with the resources you have, scope out new buildings to protect your population and avoid further attacks from the dreaded flesh eaters. It's for the thinkers, not the shooters.
