Shadow of the Game by Derail Games- Shadow of the Game is a branching storyline RPG set in the world of an MMO where developers have lost control of the game. The characters in the game are all MMO gamers who are trying to figure out what has happened to the MMO they love, as it has undergone drastic changes. While the game looks like an RPG it plays much more like a point-and-click adventure where the player must use environmental objects to solve puzzles. Puzzles are unique and progress the storyline, allowing the MMO characters to figure out more about what has happened to their favorite game.
