Sort of an interactive music video - you can move the car back and forth, but mostly you listen to music and enjoy the scenery. Really meant to showcase the music of an artist named JBox…I like this despite myself.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...

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...

Short for “The Rapture Is Here And You Will Be Forcibly Removed From Your Home,” this is one of the real classics of the walking sim genre. It received, for a game jam game, a lot of press at the time of its release, and still stands as one of the best examples of a “pure” walking sim. Basically, it’s the end of the world, and you have 20 minutes to wander around absorbing the ever-increasing sense of impending doom and listening to narration from the works of HP Lovecraft.Read more...

One of Connor Sherlock’s more stylized walking sims. Nice graphics, and you can run fast and jump really high, which makes getting around lots of fun. Part of the Zones comp, which collects currently Patreon-only games.Read more...

David Szymanski’s best, in my opinion. A haunting story about a couple of fucked up folks trapped exploring a creepy world.Read more...
