Starbot is a light, melancholic rpgmaker game tribute to The Little Prince. You play as a work-in-progress robot who befriends a star, explores satellites, and fetches parts for their (v gay) engineer and mechanic. Their journey takes them through strange dream worlds and crosses paths with a cast of wistful NPCs and eccentric, slightly intimidating sloths.

In order to play a good half of these games, you’ll need to download and install Wine. Instructions on how to install and play games on it are here.

Additional instructions if you need to read them instead are here.

ThCrooked Man

David Hoover decides to move into a new apartment during a rough time in his life.After some odd occurrences, he decides to ask about the room’s former owner, but learns little.So he sets off in search of him, strangely compelled to know more about this man…

Yume Nikki

Players explore the dreams of the character Madotsuki (窓付き). Travelling through her dreams, the player encounters surreal and sometimes disturbing scenes, such as being swallowed by a large red sewer-creature, meeting a disembodied head character known as Uboa (ウボァ) and a full-screen rotating image of a girl with five arms.

.flow (it’s the most recent version, but it’s still in Japanese. There’s really no dialogue though, so there’s no biggie in not being able to understand just the title screen.)

.flow is one of the most well-known fangames of the original Yume Nikki, made by lol (pixivDeviantArt, and Twitter accounts). It’s one of the darker spin-offs infamous for its eerie atmosphere and copious amounts of body horror and hospital imagery, centering around a girl named Sabitsuki (さびつき) as she enters her PC dreamworld to explore her mind and collect effects.

The Witch’s House

The young Viola visits a mysterious house in the woods.She soon discovers its dangerous nature and must find a way out.But the house is ever-changing, and death could be lurking anywhere…

Edit: (added a couple more)

The Mirror Lied

“A birdie flew across the roof yesterday.
He said he’ll fly over again today.
But he landed on water.
Hi birdie.
Are you here yet?
Tick, tock,
Tick, tock.
Bam.
Gotcha.”

OFF

In “OFF” you take control of a mysterious person called “The Batter”, who is described to be on an important mission. The Batter, and yourself as his controller, are dropped off in zone 0, the first of 4 zones in a perplexing, unknown world about which you slowly find out more and more in the process of the game.

These are just a few of my favorites, and Mac RPGMaker games are hard to scavage.. So good luck, and I’m sorry if this doesn’t help!

✧ Happy Birthday, an indie murder-mystery game by TearsOfNightFall 

I normally don’t do this, but I just had to! I stumbled over a cool looking game earlier today, and it was this one! It just so happened to catch my interest. It was really fun to play!

In this game, you play as a young woman who has no recollection of her own memories. She cannot remember her own name, or how she even arrived at the site of a crime – a rented out old mansion. The landlady of the mansion tells her that she is a private investigator hired to solve the case of the murder of a wealthy family’s ten year old daughter. Not only that, but it just so happened to take place at her own birthday party. Who killed the birthday girl? Was it one of the party goers who pulled the trigger, or was it the ghost said to wander the haunted halls? You can inspect the crime scene, interview various suspects, present items as proof, and look around for clues! You can also deduce three suspects, and decide the culprit’s fate. The mystery behind it is also a twist!

The game itself can take a full hour or two to complete. It’s got a good story and gives off that nostalgic detective feel. I enjoyed it overall! It’s not what you usually see when it comes to RPGMaker games, and I wanted to shed some spotlight on it because I don’t think it’s well known. There’s absolutely no gore, jumpscares, or anything of the like, but if you like mysteries, you might wanna check out this game!

Indie Pixel Horror/Adventure Games You Guys Should Play (In No Particular Order)

RPGMaker/WolfRPGEditor/GameMaker has gained traction in the indie gaming scene by allowing people to create these narratively driven arthouse-y subversive kind of underground games. Here’s a bunch of indie pixel adventure games I’ve played that I really enjoyed. 

OneShot (I enjoyed going on an adventure with Espurr Boy. Also my system is a medium? I LOVE IT.)
OFF
 (Also Home, it’s fan sequel is worth playing. Beware the library.)
Ib 
(Haunted modern art museum. HOO BOY)
Symbiosis
 (Mitt Romney’s Ghost for President)
Undertale
 (Just HOW many dogs are there? I think I saw a cow?)
Middens
(Has a sequel. The gun made me feel like I needed an adult.)
Mad Father
 (AAAAYYYYYAAAAAAAA)
Alice Mare
 (I usually dislike GrimDark fairy tale styled mediums, but this one’s actually pretty cool.)
LiEat Trilogy
 (See above.)
Space Funeral
 (Blood, blood, or blood? I also got emotionally attached to a steak.)
Yume Nikki, also
.flow (It’s all smiles and eggplants)

There’s also Uri’s games (Paranoiac, Sandman, Mermaid Swamp, and Crooked Man) and The Witch’s House. Give those a play too! They’re on vgperson’s website. 

Ao Oni also exists. So does Misao. And most of Mogeko’s games (Grey Garden, Mogeko Castle, etc) are very cute. I have never actually finished these games though.

Play Re: Kinder if you want to experience Poe’s Law firsthand. I’m pretty sure Space Funeral is at least doing it on purpose.

Finally, I think Omocat might be making a neat-o little rpgmaker title. They have a kickstarter that has been funded, I think. Go check it out, it looks good!

[EDIT] People have also recommended Lisa and To The Moon as games to play. I have never played these, but other people seem to like them, so why not give it a try? 

I’m going to slap a trigger warning on Lisa though, as apparently themes of “domestic abuse, rape, depression and addiction” are prevalent in the game. So if you don’t take kindly to these kinds of things, don’t play it. Same probably goes for Yume Nikki, but it’s pretty grey.

THE STAIRWAY (ver 1.01)
Genre: Adventure probably
Duration: 30-45 min., approximately.
Made in RPG Maker 2000.

  At last. I can’t believe it’s finally done. Here is The Stairway, the project I’ve been working on for way too long, and the first game I’ve made all by myself! (It’s not that much of a game rather than an interactive adventure.) It’s not horror, so no need to worry for jumpscares or triggering scenes.

  You play as Stella, who has been invited to an event by her friend. However, after a while of being there, this friend is nowhere to be seen. Could she possibly have left without her? While wondering, Stella stumbles upon a strange stairway… 

  If you do give it a try, I hope you enjoy it! In case you have any doubts or comments you want to tell me, feel free to drop me an ask! I plan to make a post shortly after posting this with some author’s comments and thoughts. If necessary, I’ll make at least an update to fix any bugs that might have slipped out mine and my testers’ eyes.
