Absolutely awesome walking sim/ambient weirdness. A series of vignettes, some of which you control and some that are guided. Great visuals and haunting atmosphere. Be warned, though - the whole experience takes 30-60 minutes and has no save system (intentionally, per the developer), so strap in.Read more...

Surrealist Mediterranean village to explore. Nicely done low poly models, and you can play music by interacting with objects in the scene.Read more...

Rotting CrescendoRecommended!

Another one from Ambient Mixtape 16. Rotting Crescendo puts you alone on a fishing boat in a rough sea, and lets you puzzle it out. I’ve played this several times, mainly because I love the environment/ambiance, but only this last time realized that it’s “winnable” (although, content warning - it’s not kid-friendly at all). Beautiful design and sound.Read more...

Really awesome and creepy horror game. It can be easy to get lost, but worth the long stroll to the finish. I really loved the atmosphere and writing, and the nods to Lovecraft. The original on Game Jolt has been remade - grab the 2017 version from Itch.Read more...

Sanctuary is a dark and atmospheric walking sim that takes place in a supernatural landscape of temples and cubes. It’s actually winnable (follow the paths and the music), and has great sound design and cohesive level design. I really like the aesthetic (somewhere between Dark Souls and Legend of Zelda at its darkest), and the atmospheric sound really drives the mood home, especially on the bridge.Read more...

Screenshot of Woodsy


Made for Ludum Dare, Woodsy puts you alone in the haunted woods, searching for your keys and talking to your creepy neighbors. I don’t want to spoil too much, but this is a cute and novel riff on a few genres (indeed, the jam theme was “2 incompatible genres”) and is worth the ten or so minutes it takes to complete. The game has a lot of personality, and I hope the developers flesh out the concept and/or characters.Read more...
