, and Monster Basement

The YMMV page for their works is here
Tropes associated with Godlimations:
- Author Appeal: The games have a slightly Christian-based flavor because Patrick likes this.
- Adventure Game: One of their strong points. Although sometimes the...circumstances in how to escape are contrived, to say the least.
- Badass: Zombie Inglor.
- Intercontinuity Crossover: There are sometimes hints that some of the games take place in the same continuity, in Amea, you can not only find Inglor as a boss, near the end, Amea can't remember his exact name, but she's clearly talking about Dan McNeely.
- And of course, there's also Flash Bash, a Mascot Fighter containing characters from various games, including McNeely and Amea.
- MST: There was one of the Trapped Series made by Retsupurae. In 2014, they did a two-parter on Vorago.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Some of the author's responses to legitimate criticisms are pretty childish.

Married couple Ira and Jonathan get into a car crash and are forced to search for help. Their search takes them to a town covered in a mysterious fog. From there they find themselves trapped in a convenient store with strangers, surrounded by dangerous monsters...
- Adventure Game: It's about as contrived as The Trapped Trilogy.
- Aerith and Bob: We have names like Ira and Tark, and then we have names like Jonathan and Seth.
- Attempted Rape: Seth to Ira. Jonathan intervenes.
- Bear Trap: A few appear in the forest near the beginning and end of the game.
- Beast with a Human Face: The fog monsters are this.
- The Bible: Seth carries one around and even reads specific verses to the other characters.
- Captain Ersatz: Seth is a male version of Mrs. Carmody.
- Darker and Edgier: The story goes out of its way to make sure you get how wretched these biblical End Time happenings will be by not pulling any punches on violence, gore, etc. However, Anya's death scene is a grossly tasteless and unnecessary attempt at this. Compare it to Gage Creed's death scene from Pet Sematary (which Anya's is basically a knockoff of, anyway).
- Dark and Troubled Past: Ira and Jonathan's relationship is strained by the death of their daughter due to neglect. Both seem to blame themselves (perhaps each other, as well?) for what happened.
- Downer Ending: Jonathan makes Ira shoot him to ease his pain. It does nothing and Ira's left with a twitching, suffering Jonathan in her arms, crying out desperately for anybody to help them. Note that this is essentially the same end made use of in The Mist but the writer decided to make it worse.
- Fate Worse Than Death / And I Must Scream: Anyone that has been stung by the locusts can never die, so any injury they sustain they will be alive and conscious for regardless of how bad it is. Special mention goes to Rick, who's reduced to a pile of twitching, mangled flesh by shotgun and Jonathan, who's stabbed by numerous monsters and left bleeding and in immense pain. Not helped by the fact that, when trying to get himself killed near the end, it only makes Jonathan's pain worse.
- Gender-Blender Name: Ira is a man's name.
- Gory Discretion Shot: The game doesn't show the details of how Anya got hit by the truck. Subverted right after when it cuts to Ira holding the bloody body of Anya, which has a mangled face.
- Holier Than Thou: Seth.
- Insane Troll Logic: Seth doesn't like Rick because he's Dutch and Dutch people smoke weed.
- Kleptomaniac Hero: Ira "borrows" most of the things she needs from the people around her, including a sleeping little girl. Hilariously, there are several points where the player must then use said items RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE SHE TOOK THEM FROM.
- Made of Explodium: Apparently Bear Traps have the power to make toy RC cars explode upon contact.
- Mood Whiplash: The flashback of Anya's death is interrupted by Jonathan's denial of her death, which leads to Tark's theories of how the locusts came about.
- Burning the cat and causing it to crash into the mirror. It looks like something straight out of Loony Toons rather than The Mist.
- Moon Logic Puzzle: Unlocking the handcuffs from Ira involves a Pixel Hunt for a hair clip inside a picture frame connected to her car keys. Nothing in the game hints to this.
- Earlier, one puzzle requires you to assemble an Aerosol Flamethrower to burn a swarm of flies. Doing so sets a cat on fire, somehow causing it to fly into and destroy a surveillance mirror. Somehow, you read the previous two sentences correctly.
- Non-Action Guy: Jonathan suffers from this. He spends the entire story not doing much of anything, leaving most of the work to his wife, Ira. This could be attributed to the injury he received in the car accident at the beginning, except he seemed to move just fine in a couple of cut-scenes (which meant if he really wanted to help, he could have).
- Religious Horror: The setting of the game is implied to be the end times mentioned in the Book Of Revelations.
- Scary Shiny Glasses: Seth.
