Oxenfree

Imagine Friday the 13th, a group of teenagers isolated in a forest, and a murderous psychopath on the loose. Take that context, put the teenagers on an island, and make it a psychological thriller instead of a slasher, then you’ve got the setting for Night School Studios’ Oxenfree.

That Dragon, Cancer

That Dragon, Cancer is an Indie Adventure game developed and published by Numinous Games that follows the story of the Green family and their son, Joel, through his four-year battle with cancer. This game is driven by family’s very real struggle to deal with the woes of terminal illness. It gives the player an insight into the anger, despair and hope a family with an cancer-stricken son faces. Where That Dragon lacks in gameplay it excels in a simplistic design that leaves an emotional impact on the player.
