This week on "Best Of Indie Games," we take a look at some of the top independent PC Flash/downloadable titles released over this last week.
The delights in this edition include a handful of entries from the villain-themed Ludum Dare 25 competition, a hardcore restaurant sim from The Oil Blue creator David Galindo, a point & click adventure that will have you acting as a demon, plus an Android-based title that is entirely without visuals.
Here's some recent highlights from IndieGames.com:
Game Pick: '(Tie One Woman to a Train Track and Suddenly) I'm the Badguy' (Curt Kling, freeware)
"For the villain-themed Ludum Dare 25, one half of SharkArm Studios has created an arcade game that rewards tying women to tracks and having trains run over them."
Game Pick: 'Atomic Creeper Spawner' (deepnight, browser)
"Atomic Creeper Spawner will have you focused on dissuading a single hero from destroying your orbs of true evilness. To do this, you're going to have to fling various monstrosities and the occasional chest at the unfortunate good guy."
