Terminally Ill, a game made by Sebastian Lague for Ludum Dare 26 (his first time participating), has one of the darkest set-ups I've ever seen for a collection of minigames. The framing story is that you are paralyzed and dying, but your doctors have hooked you up to a computer terminal in order to stimulate brain activity. The theory is that if your mind stays engaged, you'll be able to stave off brain death for a few more minutes. The way you do this is by playing games.
