This fast-paced runner is set inside a particle accelerator. You play a scientist running inside the particle accelerator discovering strange new particles. The speed picks up as you discover more elusive particles and blinking while playing this game soon becomes a luxury.
Boson-X is available for Windows, Mac and Linux for free. It’s also available on iOS and Android as a paid app.
An ode to retro shoot-em-ups with an equally retro storyline. You are Gaurodan, the bird of thunder and you wreck havoc around the Canary Islands, blowing up cities, armies and colossal creatures in your path. If no-nonsense retro shooters are your thing, give Gaurodan a try. It’s available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Ouya.
A Risk of Rain clone but with a fantasy setting. It’s a wave-based survival roguelike platformer and while it does borrow a lot from Risk of Rain, Hat-Dog has just started development of a sequel to this clone called Warlocks. Risk of Death is available for Windows and Mac.
Dead Cyborg – Developed by Endre Barath
Dead Cyborg is an episodic first-person sci-fi adventure game that features some silly robots. You wake up in a cryotank with no recollection of your past and must piece the story together with messages left scattered around the area by your past self. Dead Cyborg consists of three episodes; the first two are already available for download. Episode three is currently still underdevelopment but will still be free to play upon release.
This game is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.
Gods Will Be Watching is all about making difficult choices with dire consequences, all in the name of survival. Your research group is stranded on a planet which is also the breeding ground for the deadly Medusa virus. As the captain of this doomed group, your job is to make the hard decisions that will ensure the survival of your team. You have 40 days to make contact with the outside world and the only radio in your team’s possession is broken, so managing your team’s efforts will be key to survival. Easily one of my favourite games in this list. While Gods Will Be Watching is browser-based game, a full-fledged version will be released by Deconstructeam sometime in July.
