Mighty Aphid is a companion game to Moon Raider, but it's smaller and simpler. Very old-school Megaman-ish, but easier. Not much, but it's good for what it is.
AER - Memories of Old is a beautiful, serene, non-violent adventure game. It has a interesting story evocative of myth and legend, and the flying is amazing.
Archaica: The Path of Light is basically a whole game of those mirror and light puzzles you find in games like Zelda. Good puzzles, very atmospheric.
Deleveled is a minimalist puzzle-platformer with no jump button. Instead you control two squares that bounce off each other. Tons of creative and challenging levels built around momentum and synchronization.
The Long Return is a very pretty puzzle-adventure game. It's fairly easy, but still fun, and there's some nice exploration and extra stuff to find. And it just looks great.
The Bug Butcher is basically a Pang (aka Buster Bros.) clone, but it does plenty to distinguish itself. Over the top action, a variety of power-ups and options, gross aliens to kill. It's a lot of fun.
A Monster's Expedition is an absolutely delightful masterpiece from Draknek and Friends. A creative puzzle game with a wonderful world to explore, things to discover, and puzzles of a range of difficulty.
Bonfire Peaks, from Corey Martin (published by Draknek!), is fantastic. Wonderful, unique, challenging puzzles built around a fascinating theme. Poignant, atmospheric, beautiful. DLC coming soon!
Red Ronin is a bloody, exciting, tactical, tilt maze, action game. Yes, it's something of a hodgepodge, which is both a strength and a weakness. Turn-based, except when it's not. Has some interesting twists.
Zombie Rollerz: Pinball Heroes is an incredibly unique pinball game mashup that integrates defense and roguelite elements. Mow down zombies with your ball and a variety of heroes and powers. A lot of fun.
Gato Roboto is a wonderful and silly, stylish and unique metroidvania about a kitty in a mech. The story is fun, the visuals are great, and the game is a nice challenge.
BTW, the developers of Gato Roboto are working on a new game. Check out Gunbrella, it looks good!
Mushroom Heroes is a puzzle-platformer inspired by the classic Lost Vikings. Just like in the SNES game, you control three characters with different abilities and must use them all to reach the end of the level. Not very original, but fun and interesting.
Camera Obscura is a nifty puzzle-platformer. The graphics are kinda simple aside from the heroine, but they work. And the "afterimage" mechanic is inventive and fun. Very cheap.
Eastshade is brilliant and breathtaking. An incredibly unique idea executed well. Become a traveling artist! The world is so unique, detailed, and interesting. Just amazing.
Set in the same universe, but much smaller and shorter, the developers behind Eastshade also made Leaving Lyndow. It's so good. A unique, undramatic, touching story about leaving home. The world-building is impressive.
Oh, and the developers of Eastshade are working on a new game. Check out Songs of Glimmerwick, an incredible RPG set at a witch academy where music is magic, literally!
Townscaper is a delightful little toy. Build a town on the sea. Simple and intuitive, but creates beautiful results. Not much depth, and it's not a game, but it is very charming.
DARQ is a spooky and surreal adventure through nightmares. Despite the gravity shifting, this game has more in common with Point & Clicks than platformers. Lots of exploration and finding the right items to use in creative puzzles.
Merry Glade, from Anatoliy Loginovskikh, is a weird, gruesome game that does a lot of strange things. Simple controls, but very challenging. Nothing else like it. Cheap.
Anatoliy Loginovskikh's Mushroom Cats is an extremely short but charming free game about finding and giving hats to cats. Easy and family-friendly. The sequel, however, expands things a bit and is currently on sale.
Momonga Pinball Adventures is a pinball/action-adventure game hybrid. The gameplay is a little clunky at times (there are certainly better pinball games out there), but it's fun, unique, and very cute.
A Hole New World is a challenging retro action-platformer. Jump in holes to explore the evil upside-down world, and fight tons of monsters in both worlds with your magic potions. Mostly straightforward, solid gameplay.
Catlateral Damage is a silly first-person cat destruction sim. Scurry around the house and knock over as much as you can. With loads to discover and unlock, plus procedurally generated houses, this has tons of replay value.
Catlateral Damage: Remeowstered is the definitive version of the silly first-person cat destruction sim. With improved graphics, new cat photos, new tasks, various improvements & more.
Shady Part of Me is a beautiful adventure platformer. The split gameplay between the girl and her shadow is well-executed, even if it isn't particularly unique or interesting. And the presentation of the game is superb.
Hob is an epic and enthralling Zelda-like where the world changes as much as you do. A wordless but engaging story about technology and nature. Fantastic visuals, a strange dynamic world to explore.
OUTBUDDIES is a mixed bag. There are some really great mechanics and a lot of polish, but there's also frustration and tedium. The visuals are very distinct and a bit of an acquired taste. You might like it.
Dogurai is a retro ninja action platformer that packs a lot of cool into it's very limited old-school style. Slice bullets, ride a motorcycle, perform fancy combo attacks. An amazing experience.
Roundguard is a unique action-RPG roguelike where all the action takes place on pachinko board. Bounce around, hit monsters, use special skills, but be careful, danger is everywhere. Lots of fun.
Super Skelemania is a fun and quirky metroidvania with neat abilities. Short but interesting with nice visuals.
Evan's Remains is an enthralling puzzle platformer with a heavy emphasis on story. In fact, you can skip the puzzles if you only want the story. And it's a really good story. An engaging mystery of secrets and science fiction. But the puzzles are interesting too!
The King's Bird is an incredible and exhilarating platformer with momentum-based gliding. Very neat and challenging...sometimes to a frustrating degree. Not for everyone, but still very good.
Super Mutant Alien Assault is a solid, retro action game. It's just what it looks like, nothing more, nothing less. Survive waves of aliens with a variety of weapons.
Narita Boy is AMAZING. EXTREMELY 80s and EXTREMELY video games. Given the premise this game could have been cliche and boring, but it is NOT. It has care, depth, and creativity.
Burly Men at Sea is a very short but pleasant adventure game. A branching narrative encourages you to play multiple times, and the interesting visual style and gameplay will keep you engaged.
The Last Door is amazing. I did not expect a game with such low res art to be this scary but it is! Gripping from the very first chilling moment. Point & Click perfection.
Iconoclasts is an amazing action-adventure. The gameplay is really good, and the story is thoughtful and engrossing. Great cast of characters, great pixel graphics, just a really great game.
