  Ring of Thieves

By: S. John Ross (posted by Chris) (Action/Adventure, Fantasy, Gamebook)

Based on S. John Ross's Risus RPG, Ring of Thieves is a short but exciting adventure where a thief named Lucas must rescue his companion after an ambushed by a band only recognizable by their gray cloaks. The writing and characterization really drew me into the story. Recommended. Also mentioned in: Play This Thing!

  Highnoon

By: Chris Gaylo, remade by Emmanuel King Turner (posted by Chris) (Action/Adventure, Twine, Featured on Rock Paper Shotgun, Featured on freeindiegam.es)

A remake of a game made in 1970. Description from freeindiegam.es: While you are walking down a dusty, deserted side street Black Bart emerges from a Saloon one hundred paces away. By agreement, you each have four cartridges in your six-guns. Your marksmanship equals his. At the start of the walk, neither of you can possibly hit the other, and at the end of the walk, neither can miss. The closer you get, the better your chances of hitting Bart, but he also has better chances of hitting you.

An oddly familiar tale...

  Alone in the Park

By: (posted by Chris) (Action/Adventure, Humor, Puzzle)

Alone in the Park combines story and adventure game in a somewhat endearing way. From the authors: Play as a rather misanthropic gamer who finds herself lured away from her computer to embark upon a real world quest: finding hidden treasure in a national park. Annoyingly, doing this requires her to locate and reassemble pieces of a treasure map. And instead of being populated with cool creatures like giant vampire squid bats or something, the park's forests, lakes and mountains are home to the lamest NPCs imaginable. This treasure had better be fucking legendary.
