Some games, links, bookmarks, #1

Have you ever driven alone late at night?
Found yourself thinking thoughts you’d never have anywhere else?
Weird music playing on the radio?

Glitchhikers is about that experience.

Every drive is a journey.
Every thought a conversation.
What do you see when you look out at the night sky?

// Loved it. Superb ambiance. Bought the soundtrack to support the devs. Listened to the soundtrack a hundred times.
Great little game.

Prisoned is a short narrative adventure about depression and the struggle of loneliness. You explore the story of Judy and try to find a way out of her depression.

Prisoned is in early alpha stage and this is only a demo. But I hope you still enjoy it. You can download it for free or name your own price!

// Interesting little demo, i hope for a full version.

“Rituals is the second demo release from Somewhere (the first was Fictions), a surreal first person exploration, stealth and puzzle game with branching pathways, where you have the ability to step into books and also possess other characters.

Rituals is a surreal and rather confusing place to be, you’re never totally sure what exactly you’re supposed to be doing, but it’s great fun experimenting and working things out.  The ability to possess characters has been done in other games, but the way that each character perceives the world a differently is a truly unique and interesting.  Also, you have the ability to step into books – seamlessly transporting you to different areas (and times) is very cool, and pleasantly disorientating.”
