Interesting piece of entertainment I'd say. It's more of an interactive sketch than a game. But in this case it's not really a bad thing. I won't say anything about gameplay because I do not want to spoil anything for you. Visually it is looking great and it was created using VR sculpting software. If you have couple of minutes to check it out please do, it's quite funny. Also it runs in the browser so no download required. Besides that authors provided binary for Windows, Mac OSX and GNU/Linux.

If you are in mood for, haunted house themed puzzle game this game, definitely is worth of checking out. You are civilian exorcist / vampire-ghost-monster hunter. You need to go through haunted house and survive. On your path you will meet possessed pieces of clothing, poltergeists and monster furniture. You need also to watch your level of protective energy which could be regenerated by meditation. This game is actually variation of chess, each monster behaves somewhat like chess piece, it can move only in certain pattern or only some limited amount of fields. Music fits and it is pleasant to listen. Graphic is OK, personally I would recommend making it more polished. So to sum up: I recommend trying it up, I had fun playing it. Author provided binaries for GNU/Linux Mac OSX and Windows there is also browser version.

This game is inspierd by "Viy" a story by Nikolai Gogol. Basically you controll the main protagonist of the story who needs to protect corpse of young wonan from demons. In this game it's done in form of action platformer. You need to kill monsters before they can reach the crucifix and destroy it. This game has interesting powerups. My favourite is throwing fire that is burning for some time on the surface it had landed. Quite good for creating bererr for monsters. This game feaures very good pixel art and the overhaul atmosphere is fantastic. But this game has some downsides, I personally think that music is not really well selected for this game, personally I think that music is too "happy" for such horror themed game. The second thing that I had slight problem with is controlls, at first glance they are working correctly, but after some time they start to feel of, like they were too sensitive, also I think that jumps are bit too high. Overhaul it is a solid game with only minor problems (like my bad taste for music), definietely worth playing. Author only provided browser version.
