The Notgames official blog has released a tentative schedule of over a dozen titles coming out in 2012. These games are part of an initiative that started in 2010 by Tale of Tales' Michaël Samyn, which exists for developers "who wish to explore the potential of video games as a creative medium, beyond the confines of conventional game design."

The past two years brought some notable notgames, such as Frictional Games' Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Krystian Majewski's Trauma, and Erik Svedäng's Kometen. A PC port of XBLIG title They Breathe makes the 2012 list. IGF finalist dev The Chinese Room has three titles scheduled (two more after Dear Esther), and former finalist Tale of Tales has one listed, too.

Here's the current schedule:
