[Every week, IndieGames.com: The Weblog editor Tim W. will be summing up some of the top free-to-download and commercial indie games from the last seven days, as well as any notable features on his sister 'state of indie' weblog.] 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 goodies in this latest version include an unconventional AGS game, a survival roguelike, an experimental platformer by Jesse Venbrux, and a role-playing game made as a tribute to the classic EarthBound. Game Pick: 'Ghosts of Aliens' (Swordofkings128, freeware) "Ghosts of Aliens is a full-length RPG which has been in production for more than six months, featuring music by one of the developers credited with creating the post-cyberpocalyptic basketball epic, Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. Playing as the ghost of an alien named Atum, the story tells the tale of this restless soul who is given another chance at life, granted that he undertakes a quest to defeat the five Doom Beasts and save the world of Appalathia." Game Pick: 'CryptRover' (Ido Yehieli, freeware) "In CryptRover, you assume the identity of an archaeologist who's trapped in an underground crypt with limited supply of air. Strangely enough, air supply can be replenished by collecting air cans, while health is restored by walking over med packs strategically placed in areas packed with spiders. Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms." Game Pick: 'Chatroom' (TheJBurger, freeware) "A short game designed to simulate an IRC chatroom, created by the developer of La Croix Pan for a friendly One Room One Week competition held in the AGS forums. The story is set in the year 2097, where your character is holed in an underground military bunker with only a working computer to use as means of contact with the outside world." Game Pick: 'You Made It' (Jesse Venbrux, freeware) "We've made it to the final recommendation for this week - a new experimental project by the developer of Frozzd and the Karoshi series. Walk, jump, and stumble your way towards the exit cleverly hidden by your own trails in each of the ten levels, only to find a screenshot of your final achievement as the reward."
