Rxcovery

About Rxcovery

You are dreaming.

You are unconscious in a hospital bed. Your insurance only covers 30 more minutes of life support. After that, you'll be unplugged, and that will be the end.

But all is not lost! You have 30 minutes to explore your dream and collect dream money. Maybe you can collect enough, and you'll live to see another day - in real life this time!

It won't be easy, though. Demonic nurses and orderlies pop up at every turn. Fight them with weapons and magic, and recruit allies to help you along your way, including Recovery, the helpful android nurse of your dreams! Or nightmares...

Run Jesus Run

About Run Jesus Run

A short (10-second) collection of mini-games derived from the New Testament, this game puts the player in charge of a retro-styled Jesus Christ, harnessing player reflexes and platform-game problem-solving (run, jump) to re-enact Scriptural verses Luke 4:1-13, John 6:1-14, Mark 6:45-52, Matt 5:1-2, Mark 8:22-26, John 11:1-44 and Matt 8:1-4.

The left and right keyboard arrows are used to move, while the space bar is brought into play to work miracles (or "do Jesus things" as it says in the introduction, where it also notes that the goal of the 10-second gameplay session is "to save the humanity.")

Following the brief series of chunky-pixel screens, the player's overall success is measured by how many Apostles were swayed by the player's acrobatic feats. [source:mobygames]

Boolean Escape

About Boolean Escape

Boolean Escape is inspired by the Room-Escape Flash games of the early 2000's.

Everyone who plays will lock their key into a combination safe. Who's key you find is entirely down to you guessing a correct combination. It might take you a while but eventually you'll discover a key. If you don't have the patience you can play Boolean Escape without a key.

A boolean can be true or false. A button can be on or off. A lever can be up or down. A key can lead to safety or can lock you away forever.

This is a short game (probably about 10 minutes) where the aim of the game is to escape the strange world you find yourself in.

Your fate lies in the hands of a previous player.
