    Word!

    Going on a long train journey tomorrow, I wondered if anyone had any recommendations of any nice time sink games I can download for the journey for my laptop...

    I'm pretty skint, so was after a nice cheap indie game or two - and there's no internet, so offline only, no DRM - which includes steam as it always prevents me logging in, even in offline mode.

    I like an RPG (not japanese style preferably), was thinking project zomboid... anything else?

    Thanks EG!

    Humble indie bundle looks good - torchlight being the main appeal, but I've done that!!

    @Metalfish I totally missed seeing the IndieGala bundle! Will buy it once I find out what the two secret games are.

    I think I read somewhere that the two free games are Alien Breed 3 and another Worms game.

    After reading the review I reckon ill get ftl for the return journey. Most of the indie bundles look a little - I dunno, throwaway. Not to do them a disservice, they look great and excellent value for money - but I'm after another torchlight or slightly bigger game.

    Dwarf fortress looks a bit intimidating!

    Its only a 5 hour game but can I recommend To The Moon? Also, you can download beneath a steel sky for free from gog.com which is a classic point a click adventure if you like that sort of game

    Thanks guys, return journey tomorrow. Going to try ftl, and save ottd for when I can play online.

    Beneath a steel sky is a classic which I've played through a few times - good to know its free forthose who want it.

    Let's keep the thread going with good train friendly games!

    Really enjoying the indies I have played lately so this thread needs an update with new recommendations, so what do you recommend and why?

    Me:

    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

    Supernatural walking simulator that seems to evoke love or hate among those who played it. I loved it and its really gorgeous to look at.

    Brothers: A tale of two sons

    Easy going and fun tale with a few emotional stings in the tail. Unsure if this qualifies as Indie as Starbreeze is well known but it has an indie feel and well worth trying.

    The Stanley Parable

    Funny walking simulation with narration about a guy and his choices (or lack of).

    The Beginners Guide

    A real oddity. Try it of you fancy a bit of weird in your life, its only 2 hours long.

    @Pinky_Floyd

    I am very much enjoying Renowned Explorers. On GOG rather than Steam -- TAKE THAT GABE.

    You get to be friendly to wolves. If you want.
