It will probably take you all of two minutes to play all the way through the drippingly ironic RPG Hero's Adventure. But don't let the 8-bit art style and antiquated, text-heavy play mechanics fool you. Or rather, go ahead and let it fool you. This microscopic experiment is much darker and more screwed up than you can possibly imagine.

Webgame Wednesday: Zombies Took My Daughter
Zombies, undead bastards though they are, always make for welcome antagonists in movies, comic books and video games. In Zombies Took My Daughter, hordes of shambling zombies have ... well, I think you get the point. This nifty little RPG/adventure game has you running around the city, searching abandoned buildings, picking up clues, recruiting fellow survivors and generally beating zombies about the head with an assortment of odd weaponry (loaf of French bread, anyone?). The city is randomly generated, so it’s different each time you play. Hurry! You don’t have much time left to find your daughter.
