Indie Point-and-Clicks with a Retro Aesthetic

GOGmix by HoneydewHuey's avatarHoneydewHuey 5votes

Samaritan Paradox, The

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: A great and unique story, well-implemented gameplay and a lovely '90s pixel art aesthetic with a subdued palette. Features a fun fantasy "game-within-a-game." More coming soon from up-and-coming publisher Screen 7, such as A Night at Camp Ravenwood

Blackwell Bundle

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: Blackwell started it all for Wadjet Eye, arguably the best developer-publisher of retro point-and-clicks today. They published most games on this list. Blackwell is a unique paranormal mystery story; this bundle contains the first 4 of 5 games.

Blackwell Epiphany, The

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: This is the epic Blackwell finale. I haven't played it yet, but intend to soon (6-1). I've heard great things! What's next for Wadjet Eye? Soon they'll be publishing A Golden Wake by the creator of Ben Jordan, then the cyberpunk game Technobabylon

Gemini Rue

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: Gemini Rue is a noir-ish science fiction story with great puzzles, characters and story. The dialogue is very well-written, and the voice acting is of excellent quality.

Primordia

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: Primordia is a very entertaining and moody point-and-click with themes of post-humanity, friendship, and institutions (i.e. religion, the legal system, etc). The art style is incredible, and the writing is excellent.

Resonance

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: Resonance is an epic sci-fi adventure with a unique interface that relies on capturing topics to bring up at will in conversations or, if I recall, even in puzzles in some cases. There are multiple playable characters. Morality is a central theme.

Shivah, The

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: This is an interesting but short mystery with a Jewish protagonist and an intriguing plot. I believe it was originally a freeware release by Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye; it has since been remade twice (this release has great art by Ben Chandler).

Last Door: Collector's Edition, The

HoneydewHuey's rating: not rated yet
250

HoneydewHuey says: I've only played the first episode of this - free in its original form online - but what I did play was very engaging with interesting puzzles and a strong sense of atmosphere despite the super-lo-res pixelated graphics. Described as 'Lovecraftian.'

Cat Lady, The

HoneydewHuey's rating:
250

HoneydewHuey says: A very disturbing and powerful story in point-and-click form. Whether this fits the list is debatable, but this game's art still strikes me as having a bit of a '90s feel to it - although not pixel art - as it has a surreal, experimental bent to it.

Downfall

HoneydewHuey's rating: not rated yet
250

HoneydewHuey says: I haven't played this yet, but this is the predecessor to "The Cat Lady" by the same developer (not Screen 7 the publisher-producer, but R. Michalski). It has a similar but less developed art style to TCL.

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
