#NoMoreNazis is somehow controversial

There’s also a really good reason for continually making players shoot Nazis in the head: they’re the ultimate villain.

'The Witches' Tea Party' casts a spell that captures attention

The game was published by Rabbiton and developed with RPG Maker and is a casual indie game that is story driven, and sets out on a short but absorbing plot filled with the drama of each witch’s past. There is no combat; the game is mainly based around puzzles, small detective segments, and storytelling. It’s cute, and sometimes very creepy.
