Hey all, I have been recently reminded of this guy, and I think ubuu would enjoy his games quite a lot.

Basically, he makes flash games, most of them focused on exploration and puzzle-solving. The illustrations are very interesting, so are the characters. Also, delicious ambience and great general atmosphere. Interested? Great, read on.

The first game I'd recommend is the submachine series. It starts out as a very simple escape-the-room kind of game, but the story and gameplay develop, most notably in parts 2-4. It's a fairly eerie experience. Interdimensional portals, artificial intelligence and cats are involved.

If you never played submachine before, I suggest trying out the sub network exploration project first - http://www.submachineworld.com/subnet.html You jump around the network, from room to room and look for clues. You don't have to do it in order. Each area is different and only loosely related to others, and some of the rooms contain fan-submitted theories. There IS a last room however. But more are being added periodically.

The second game (pictured) is daymare town. This one requires exploration and finding items/solving puzzles as well. Excellent soundtrack. Quirky characters/creatures. I found this one to be rather depressing, though.

You can find them all here: http://www.pastelgames.com/index,games,flash_games.html

i remember playing his "the great house escape" games, i loved how weird they were. the daymare series was great, i also liked the trader of stories and escape artist. this guy's stuff is right up my alley, i have to say. definitely recommended to those who like weird games.

and as for depressing, daymare town 1 and 3 couldn't compare to 2. 2 was actually the one that creeped me out a lot more than the other ones.

he can do some pretty cute stuff too, like halo and pixy

Woah, it has Trader of Stories! That thing's the shit, man.

Go try it, the rest of you.

The Submachine is probably my favourite freeware game series. It has an atmosphere I have never encountered so far in Flash games. Like in Myst in the good old times.
Ironically the author never played Myst.

These seem great, I take it there's no way to play them offline, though?

I think some of them can be played offline if you buy the HD version.

Oh wow these are amazing
it took me hours to realized that the subnet linked wasn't actually a game in itself (and rather a hub filled with rooms from the submachine games). I thought I was playing like the sweetest Yume Nikki exploration game ever.

I never even knew he did those Great Escape games I loved so much. I know what I'll be up to now.
