Here is a list of games that I have compiled (all of which most likely don’t need you to download anything) and that have personally made me feel… this weird… fuzzy feeling. These games are adventures, they’re something that will make you have to sit down and think about. I’ll update it if I ever get that feeling again.
You Find Yourself in a Room - manually input text
"Heads up: This game features some foul language and a few heartbreakingly demeaning insults, particularly in the second half. You’ve been warned."
Alter Ego - choices
“Alter Ego is an online life simulation browser game. (It’s hard to explain.)”
no-one has to die. - puzzles
"4 people are trapped in a building fire and need your help to escape."
A small talk - manually input text
You wake up. Alone, in a dark room. Alone? No, there is someone talking to you through a console. Will you respond?
Bars of Black and White - point and click
“You can’t remember the last time you left your room. When you receive a barcode reader in the mail, you discover that the world around you is not what it seems, and must escape the bars of black and white.
"Bars of Black and White" is a game in the room-escape tradition with hand-drawn line art graphics and novel barcode-scanning action. Is the world insane, or is it you?"
The Day - adventure
It’s Tia’s birthday, and she’s looking forward to beating all of her friends with the new card her dad gave her! Beat the other kids by choosing the right cards, and earn more cards until you’re the best of them all!
And don’t go into the woods, or the guards will kill you.
(OP’s note: The ending hits hard.)
Mr Moore’s Last Seconds - platformer [Added: Sept. 7, 2013]
Mr Moore was in a fatal car accident, and his life flashed before his eyes. He remembered the key events in his life, and he was troubled by a few. Take it upon yourself to witness Mr Moore’s life, and help him steer away from fate’s harm.
EDIT: annabelle-comstock added some really great games to this list (I loved Howard Glitch omg)! Click their name for a link to that. I don’t know what they changed their username to, but here were the games they added:
A game in which you are guided by the orders of an omniscient entity. Will you follow them?
Viricide -arena shooter
(While not exactly the same type of thing, this is in a way the sister game to YFYIAR) You are tasked with cleaning up the bugs in EXADI, an advanced artificial intelligence, after a virus has damaged her systems.
One Chance -puzzle/choice point-and-click
You have six days to live before the end of all life on earth. You have one chance (literally). How will you spend them?
Howard Glitch -youtube??? game??? (trust me it works)
You and 5 other passengers are trapped in a space shuttle hurtling towards certain death. There is no way to avoid your fate, but you still have a choice. Accept your fate, or escape reality?
A rather simple platformer, barring the fact that the game is lying to you.
