    I can vouch only for Detention and The Cat Lady. The former was already mentioned in this thread, the latter is fantastic with some caveats. It's an adventure game with keyboard only controls, sorta like Grim Fandango but with sidescroller movement. It's weird but not too offensive. It's also much more focused on narrative and atmosphere than on puzzles. The writing, tho, is exceptionally good for a video game.
    The whole thing's vibe is, I don't know, like Proyas' The Crow meets New French Extremity. It's very striking alright.

    Thanks for linking that bundle by the way, there's a couple of titles there, like Conarium and White Night, that I've been eyeing.

    Stasis is great, it's a point and click sci-fi horror game with great art and atmosphere. Afaik, the dev is a fellow Codexer.

    Most seem to recommend either 2 or 3.
