Best 10 Minute Games

To many people, the best types of games are those that provide several hours of gameplay. For some games, it can take a player over 100 hours to fully complete the game, play through the main story and extra content and obtain all the available achievements.

However, a game being long doesn't automatically make it good, and not everyone can or wants to spend several hours a day playing a game. There are several games out there that are both enjoyable and only take a few minutes to complete.

My Sticker Book

My Sticker Book is a cute indie game by ElementSu, where players control a little girl. In the game, she's sleeping on her own for the first time, and she gets thirsty in the middle of the night. The task of grabbing a glass of water is one that most adults wouldn't find very challenging, but the unknown darkness of the night makes the little girl fearful that there will be monsters hiding in her house.

Players must guide her to get a drink by using the mouse to interact with the storybook environment and grab stickers that the little girl can use to complete objectives. It's a very charming horror puzzle game, that isn't really scary but does well to show the perspective and imagination of a child. The game is free to play, but added content like the OST, chat stickers, and wallpapers can be purchased for about $3.

SLASHER, Interrupted

It can be very frustrating to be continuously interrupted when telling a story or having other people input unwanted opinions. But as the premise for SLASHER, Interrupted by Softerror Interactive, it's a lot of fun and can lead to several different endings. The game is told from the perspective of Emily who is out on a camping trip with her three friends Rosie, Ellie, and Caroline.

Emily tries to tell a horror story, but her friends keep interrupting her storytelling with their ideas. It's up to the player to decide how the story goes and whose tastes they wish to cater to. The game can be finished in 10 minutes, but with 27 possible endings, it's worth multiple playthroughs. SLASHER, Interrupted is part of a bundle on that features a collection of games that can be finished in 10 minutes, for $10.

The Microwave Paradox

The Microwave Paradox is a horror game that shows that it's really important to follow directions, especially when using new appliances. Playing as a man who has been given a new microwave to test out, players can test out how the "Super New Microwave" cooks different types of food.

It's an easy task all in itself, but when the player decides to break the one rule of only using the microwave on food, they quickly realize the reason for that rule. The Microwave Paradox is by SeriousDaniel and makes for a short but creepy game that will give players chills.

Bio Evil 4

The recently released Resident Evil 4 Remake quickly became popular, with both old and new fans. It's a remake that improves a lot of elements of the original game and brings its own. Bio Evil 4 is a 'demake' of the game that turns the action-packed horror game into a NES-style platformer. Made by Gypopothomas, this fan game lets the player control Leon as he battles knife-swinging and scythe-throwing villagers to rescue Ashley.

There's a continuous stream of enemies that often come from both sides, so it's important to time each shot right to avoid being swarmed, just like in the remake, but only in a more cute 2D style. There are three different modes of difficulty, Baby, Normal, and Pro.

Goodbye, Doggy

A beloved pet can so easily become a member of the family, and when one passes, they can leave a large hole in the hearts of the family they left behind. Goodbye, Doggy is a cute and bittersweet game by Picogram. Players play from the perspective of a recently deceased dog.

Being a loving and loyal family pet, even in death, the objective of the game is to check in with each member of the family and help them deal with their grief. Whether it's making sure they're hydrated and fed or helping them out with a task, players can help the mourning family of this dog and help it pass on peacefully into the afterlife.

Pineapple On Pizza

Based on the name, one might think that Pineapple On Pizza by Majorariatto is about pizza. But there is no pizza shown or mentioned in the game, only a beautiful tropical island inhabited by happy dancing people. The 'pineapple on pizza', aspect of the game is more of a metaphor for taking something good and, based on one's personal tastes, ruining it. And then weirdly enjoying it afterward.

Explore the island, enjoy catchy music, and discover animals that also live on the island. Maybe even jump into the inviting-looking volcano that's located on the island as well? Surely nothing bad could happen in such a bright and upbeat game.

A Game About Literally Doing Your Taxes

Taxes are probably one of the least fun things about adulthood. They have to be done every year, without mistakes and one almost always ends up owing at least a little bit of money to the government. A new game from Not a Sailor Studios, the same creators of Buddy Simulator 1984, A Game About Literally Doing Your Taxes is exactly what it says it is.

Players have to sort through their paperwork to separate their taxes from the trash. For 7 days, players have to sort through a stack of paperwork in this casual, pixel art horror game. Because taxes are truly a nightmare, right?

A Late Night Convo

A Late Night Convo is a sweet and cozy visual novel by HusbandoGoddess. The game features Seo-jun and his partner Iris having a late-night chat about their relationship and a bit about Seo-jun's previous experience with dating as an asexual.

A Light Night Covo is a short but touching visual novel game that touches on the relationship dynamics of people who identify as ace. It's a topic that isn't often featured in romance visual novels.

Lo-Fi Room

Using either the arrow keys of the Q, W, E, R keys, players can make their own beats and get to listen as their unique lo-fi beats come together. The game is still in development and only has three levels currently.
