The Pedestrian is a 2.5D puzzle platformer that takes “puzzle platforming” literally. You play as The Pedestrian (aka the male bathroom symbol) who works at the restroom sign along with his beloved (the female symbol). When she disappears, you must escape your day job and embark on a perilous journey where you piece the “sign world” back together to make it through.
Shadowland is a game in which you play as a shadow that has to scape a gray and empty world. Where are you? How did you get there? How can you escape? Who is this voice talking to you? Shadowland won't give you the answer to any of this questions, but you might find some of your own.
Shortest Trip to Earth is a roguelike spaceship simulator focused on exploration, ship management and tactical battles. Embark on a perilous journey across the universe, while an intergalactic war is raging.
Road Rage Royale is a racing fighting game set in a cyber-punk post-apocalyptic world. You’re a cyborg at the wheel of an indestructible vehicle fueled by his own rage. You’re on the grid of a short track, surrounded by walls, the race is about to start. I mean, you know that it’s not a race, but you still want to be in the lead, you can’t help it, it hurts you when you’re not, truly. And since it’s a fight, you should probably try to hurt your opponent’s more than you hurt yourself. Hit them, make them rage, smash them against walls or obstacles, knock them out. There can be only one winner of the Road Rage Royale.
