You're enjoying a roasted shoe deep in the forest with your rat pal, Percy, when a stranger named T.I.

12. Hangar 22, by Rob O'Hara (2011)

In this game of diplomacy, you play as an inept junior member of the diplomatic corps. This week, you need to convince Brc'nl, who is some sort of noble glob from Glorpon-42, to argue in Earth's favor in a proposed trade deal. You may have to wear a silly hat.

15. Apoptosis, by Kate McKee (2010)
David Welbourn says:

In this small game, you play as a short-lived creature with the evolutionary ability to steal traits from other creatures. You have lots of competition trying to get inside, but you can do this. Use your skills to get to the front of the line, get inside, and get seats for all your friends. And don't forget to keep up your strength; all this work is exhausting. (In case you're wondering, apoptosis is a form of controlled cell death.)

16. Tex Bonaventure and the Temple of the Water of Life, by Truthcraze (2013)

21. Lurk. Unite. Die. Invent. Think. Expire., by Ryan Stevens (1999)
Average member rating: (3 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this small and rather surreal game, your character is undescribed, and you can visit a handful of bizarre locations that seem to have nothing to do with each other. Maybe it's interesting? Or maybe it's a pointless waste of your time. You decide.

22. The Lighthouse, by Eric Hickman and Nathan Chung (2008)
Average member rating: (18 ratings)
David Welbourn says:

In this short sparse dull game, you play as a person of no particular description. Mr Webster has asked you to take care of his lighthouse, the Havenworth Lighthouse. Your goal is simply to turn on its light.
