A Dark Room certainly ranks as one of the more unique games that I have ever played. Part of the magic of this game is that, because of the lack of any discernible tutorial, there is a very realistic sense that the character does not know what to do and is trying their best to keep their growing community going. Because of all that there really is a need for some guidance for those playing through the first time, or even those just looking for a more efficient route when booting the game up for the second or third time. That’s what I’ll attempt to do here, starting of course with waking up in a dark room.

[Note: We've tried to avoid spoilers as best we can, but even the emergent gameplay in A Dark Room could be considered spoiler territory to some. If you haven't played the game before and would rather feel your way through the first time, we advise that you hold off on reading this guide until your second attempt.]

Emily in Darkness looks like a dark and disturbing adventure, but some bad translation ruins a lot of the mystique.

Lumigon is a cute and relatively simple (in a nice, accessible way) runner that's only slightly held back by a bit too much sensitivity.

Dark Legends Teaser Trailer Released

It’s a little bit dark, it’s a little bit sexy, it’s the first teaser trailer for the upcoming MMORPG, Dark Legends. This MMMORPG (mobile massively multiplayer online role playing game – you heard it here first, folks –Ed.) centers on secret factions of vampires, werewolves, demons, and the humans trying to exterminate these undead threats. The player plays a recently awakened vampire under the direction of the vampire that turned them in a fight for survival against the human mobs that have recently been alerted to the existence of the undead.

The trailer doesn’t reveal much in the way of gameplay, but it does set a certain tone for the upcoming game. Dark Legends is being developed by Spacetime Studios, who also developed the critically acclaimed MMOs Star Legends and Pocket Legends. Dark Legends is set for release sometime in the first quarter of this year for iOS, Android, and Chrome. Take a look at the teaser trailer below to get an idea of what’s in store.

Mystique held little mystery for me in it's first incarnation. Needs smoother graphics and more gameplay. Not for me but you might like it if you enjoy 'locked in a room' style puzzles.

Hysteria Project

Hysteria Project

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
The Hysteria Project is a cinematic horror game that is surprisingly creepy. From the opening moments to the ending scene, there is a sense of urgency that is unparalleled on the iPhone. It's a shame that this game only lasts for about 1-1/2 hours because by the end you've done just about everything the game has to offer. It was fun while it lasted, but after three days it is already collecting dust in my iTunes app folder.
