  1. Lord's Destiny
    • Created by WraithChaser and SkeletalGadget
    • Trek through the dragon's castle and save the princess! Lord's Destiny is an action platformer where you control the Knight throughout multiple levels! Slash through obstacles and enemies alike to reach the end door! This is the free version, and will be displaying ads during gameplay. Players will be allowed to purchase in-game currency to gain cosmetics and power up their character.

  2. Squeaky Rafts
    • Created by kujukuju & smolboisad
    • Squeaky Rafts is a multiplayer survival game. You've crash landed on a remote island (what a travesty) and your goal is to reach the mainland. Use the help of the native gloopglaps to survive the journey!

  3. Spin Shift
    • Created by addaline, CutestBichAlive, TeaRacer, valerievulps
    • Spin Shift is a platformer focused on speed. You play as the Spin Shifter who can roll along walls, floors, and ceilings, with 2 roll actions; Clockwise roll and Counterclockwise roll. Use rolling, jumps, and gear-kicks by slamming into reverse to navigate through a handful of stages, as you grapple with shades that cling to your ankles.
