Like horror games? enjoy having your mind fucking messed with? got 10 - 20 minutes to kill? Well, i have the game just for you. Im scared is a desptive little horror game that plays some really nasty little tricks on you while playing it. To tell you what these tricks are would be total spoilers and I couldn't do that, so play it and appreciate the creepy ass pixel graphics and some really cool game mechanics. 

Flow

Flow? Flow that game made by “that game company” that was released on the Playstation network ages ago? Yes this is the flow I am talking about. Litte do most people know the game was originally a flash game and is still free to download. So why should you play it? Well, its probably the most relaxing game you can play, period. it was practically designed to be the most relaxing game. 

It is based around the idea of Flow (yes this an actual thing), so flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energised focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterised by complete absorption in what one does. The game captures this idea so well it is scary, but yeah if your streed out play it for 10 mins and you'll be super relaxed and calm, it’s fantastic.

Super Crate Box

SUPER FUCKING CRATE BOX!!!! it is the most infuriating game, but so damn addctive and fun that you just cant stop playing it. All you have to do is jump, shoot and collect crates. sounds easy right? Well, it is not, not even close, its fucking hard. but its hard in the way if you keep on playing you get better and better until you a freeking pro.

The game was made by vlambeer, so it has there amazing art style all over the show and the music is some sort of crazy chiptunes insanity, which is fantastic. This game is a great time killer and its free on mac and pc so go play it. 

The End of Us

What can i say, I fucking love this game. It made me really cry like a 5 year old. This emotional moving game can be played with two or one person and was made to evoke friendship. Made for the Global Game Jam in 2011 in which the years theme was extinction. 

In the game you control an astroid flying though space and then you meet another astroid. its such a charming game that has a simple art traditional flash art style and some moving music that in a way reminds me of the best parts of journey. I cant really say much more with out spoiling it, but the game takes about 3 minutes to complete in a web browser so you have no excuses to not play it!

So there you go, these games should kill some time. Probably a large chunk of time if you get addicted to super crate box. These are just some of the vast amount of free games that you can get off the internets  every year there is a Global Game Jam and with it hundreds of new games are made available to download and play. So check it out when you get the chance, also try googling free games and see where that takes you. Cause most free games tend to be pushing the bar when it comes to innovative and creative stuff!
