Games and Simulators

To muck up your brain, try Gestalt OS, Alien Keymap, Game Inside a Game, Zebra, Cell Machine, or Out of Ctrl.

Or some simulators like Sandspiel, Evolution, Nicky Case's Emoji Simulator, Snowman Simulator, or the Neural Self-Regenerating Cellular Automata.

For a relaxing ride, try Line Rider or Fly Like a Bird 3. For a ride not so relaxing, there's always QWOP.

Language and spelling weirdness can be yours if you check out Last Word and Galactic Center for Etymological Research.

Cursors 2 is fun with a friend, and the ancient yet brilliant GooGrid is good with a gaggle of friends.
