* ''TheWhiteChamber'' details a game describing the events of a girl who has just woken up on a space station that's missing its crew and has a weird habit of shifting into a DarkWorld. Your goal is to discover what is going on, where everyone is, and why you seem to be unable to remember how you got here.
* ''LimboOfTheLost'' begins with the main character Benjamin Briggs awakening in a cell with a crazy man hanging from the ceiling as company, and has to escape. Most players will likely be clamouring to escape their own little Crazy Place with Alt-F4 about five minutes later.
