Son is a half-bull, half-human. King Dick, you ain't the daddy! Anywho, living up to his name, King Dick threw his new son in a labyrinth (rude!) and left him there.

DEMO
-----------------------------------------------------



This is literally just gameplay. There's no actual title, no plot, no objectives, and only one NPC who acts as a tutorial/shop. I wanted to make sure that I had all the basics down before I even touched anything else.
If you wanted to play a farming game with just farming and husbandry, well. Here you go! You can't sell animals yet though so either kill em off or deal with them.



In Aurora Magica, the protagonist, Varek, is an aspiring Relic Hunter, a crown sanctioned adventurer. A position that allows him free travel, good pay, and a little courtly sway. In return, he clears nests of monsters, helps to protect villages, and will occasionally perform courier duties. Usually, this is an enviable position within the Kingdom of Kode, but it's a job that just became a little more dangerous.

The Gorrister miners have finally acted on their threats to organize against their incompetent lawbringers, threatening to plunge the nacent city into chaos. Into this town wanders Tallest-Reed, an old Saxhleel woman with only one ambition: to find Watermill Rock, the island of her youth, which seems to have vanished off the face of Nirn like a dream.


Just outside of Jupiter, the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) is constructing the largest space ship ever built. All mention of it seems to be erased. Julie Ryans, a disgraced reporter is sent undercover to the construction of this massive spaceship to report on the goings on of the UNSS Ouroboros and what her mission might be. Upon arrival, Julie finds the huge ship teaming with life as the crew of the Ouroboros get the ship ready to go further than any human has traveled before, but before they can complete their readiness, the main reactor starts up on its own and the crew is forced to race to their cryo-stasis pods for safety as the ship plummets into hyper-dimensional space...destination unknown.


"If you bring me 10 souls I will trade yours for theirs. Do we have a deal?"
Tristan knew better than to take this deal. It was a deal like this that had put his soul in the damning position that he was in. However, if this was his only way out, he would make yet another deal, but one has to think... How much of a soul is left after you've taken those of 10 others?




The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity clings to what little it has left. Out in the Wastes there are many dangerous things, horrific science experiments, rogue killer AI, humans who see others as a free meal, and wildlife that has a bone to pick. This dangerous land has given rise to organizations dedicated to preserving the peace and getting paid for it.


VILLAINBAD, BATTALION LEADER OF MARS' EXTRATERRESTRIAL NAVY (MEN), IS HIDING SOMETHING AND WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO PREVENT THOSE ON EARTH REACHING MERCURY.

Join Gunnar and Veili as they come into their own as Vanguards, and contend with the aftermath of the Icefall Incident, as well as take one step closer to the truth. But what is the truth exactly? Is it the true origins of this world? Or is it the unrevealed history of the souls who conspire to bring about change in this broken world? Unwitting souls are about to find out, for better or for worse.


Frosty is the beloved cat of the Caine family, a good luck charm against a curse. A person chosen by the curse has their mind destroyed, and body rendered useless, culminating in death after a few years. There was only one anomaly-Norisuke, great-great-great-etc-grandfather to the current generation of Caines. He believed his first cat, Sol, saved him from a terrible fate. Now that your family is showing signs of the disease and dropping like flies, you hope to pull off the same miracle that Sol did, so long ago.


When the Cruise Liner Concordia is destroyed in an accident, one of the survivors, Tayla Woodson finds herself marooned on just such a planet, Vega 2. To her surprise, it's not uninhabited.

With them, they've brought the worst aspects of humanity that have plagued Earth since the dawn of time.


Being a nosey, happy-go-lucky pre-schooler, you awake on December 25th, only to find that Santa hasn't brought any presents this year.

A bunch of kids set off a weird curse after starting an argument in a library one day after school. Now you're stuck in the minds of your friends. It's up to you to deal with their issues and get out.
Yeah, I just summarised this because the actual description is a giant image and not text. Sue me. - Liberty



A knight, a thief, a wizard, and a priest must collect the four magical crystals to be able to remake the legendary blade of light. They must use the sword to break the seal to the dark fortress, defeat the evil Dark Lord, and save the princess! You have heard this story before, right?


Outside of your room you meet a strange boy, who claims he is your friend, and you must find your true past by walking through all the worlds behind all of the drips.
By walking through maps, you can truly become friends with your companion, and deduce what was your past, and why you forgot everything.
You must gain all effects and make some good decisions to get the best ending.

Very solid. I can see some misao possibles here.
Antadin looks and sounds really interesting to me conceptually, I look forward to checking it out.
These titles look very interesting, I might check out those puzzlers.

Yay! I got a banana! :D

Have there always been this many releases monthly? It seems like a lot!
In the past three months:
January = 53 total
February = 33 total
March = 45 total

Keep in mind that there were some demos and full games that got minor updates that I didn't include in Feb and March lists because the lists would have the same games over and over again over minor things like patches or general fixes, so if all of them were shown it'd be a little more.

I finally changed my avatar, but that doesn't mean I have a meaningful user title.

Yeah, my commercial game demo is eligible for a Misaos???
Weird, for some reason my search included commercial games. I've now removed them since they aren't actually viable for Misao nominations. The new count is:
24 full games
14 demos

Which makes 38 the new total for March.
I recommend The Linear Game if anyone wants less than 10 minutes to kill. It's the only game from this list I felt compelled to download. (I know very hearty recommendation). But I guess I'd like to find more people interested in how minimalist a game can get and enter a discussion on such a thing because it is interesting.
