Banner Saga ($10)
A beautifully-drawn game where every decision is life or death and the characters are so deep you’ll feel lost when one of your heroes falls — and more importantly — proud when they survive.
Tiny Dice Dungeon (Free)
Tiny Dice Dungeon blends RPG character building and leveling with risk taking and dice rolling, resulting in a fleshed-out experience with hoards of creatures to catch and divine weapons to craft.
A Dark Room ($1)
This text-based game is full of mysteries and unsolved puzzles, so get your thumbs ready to collect firewood and figure out what all of this means. Oh, and don’t forget to keep that fire roaring through the night.
With plenty of skills and loot to collect, there’s far more to the crumbling world of Bastion than meets the isometric camera. Riveting narration, detailed environments, and leveling represent only one aspect.
Goat Simulator ($5)
Ever imagine life as a goat? This game is the epitome of goat-ness, encouraging you to enjoy the title’s trademark glitches while you wreak havoc on the town with a taste for mayhem and a headbutt maneuver.
Providing a unique take on the standard, match-three puzzle gameplay, Spellfall will keep you coming back for more sword swinging with a melange of weapons, special abilities with which to slay.
In this relax-em-up, you play as a mountain, waiting for snow to fall and watching items passively gather on your slopes as seasons pass. There’s no plotline or controls, though, just a subtle expression of nature.
Battleheart Legacy ($5)
The lengthy Battleheart Legacy may lack the party system of its predecessor, but the real-time combat and flexible leveling system are superb. There’s just enough challenge and customization, too, with humor to boot.
Welcome to the Dungeon (Free)
Lay traps, summon demons, and generally give brave adventurers a hard time as they attempt to progress through your dungeon. Just be prepared to spend hours grinding to make it to the second area of the game.
Wayward Souls ($7)
The replay value of Souls lies in the procedural-generated environments. The innate randomness adds to the head-t0-head battles and innovate controls, regardless of which of six, distinct players you opt for.
