Many of us have come to depend totally on our smartphones these days. Everything's on there, from contacts to calendars, messages to music, pictures to puzzle games. Losing one would be a disaster, but that's just what's happens to poor Sam in A Normal Lost Phone, the debut title from French indie developers Accidental Queens.

Irish mythology, with its magical beings like faeries and banshees, has long captivated imaginations of people around the world.

If there's one incontrovertible rule of time travel, it's don't mess with history! In the newly-released "stealth adventure" called The Challenge, it will be your difficult task to ensure that nobody does that very thing.
When it comes to videogames, the only thing scarier than being all alone in the dark is the possibility that you might not be. In a new psychological horror adventure from Deceptive Games, that very question is at the heart of ALONE?
With all due respect to Johnny Cash, the boy named Sue ain't got nuthin' on indie developer Steve Gabry's boy named Sally Face, the star of a new episodic series that just debuted on Windows and Mac.
