One of the enticing features that interactive games have is allowing the players to choose the next course of action in the storyline, which makes it more immersive and benefits the overall gameplay experience. It sets itself apart from traditional video games, which commonly have a linear plot, by providing multiple endings or outcomes for each decision the player makes.

Here are ten interactive games for PC that will surely keep the players engaged and on the edge of their seats:

He needs to recount his life before death to the Ferryman, who will guide him to the Gatekeeper of the Great City, the eternal paradise. The game stands out with its innovative gameplay mechanic since it is designed to be played using a webcam to detect blinking, which is also Benny’s sole means of communication with the Ferryman (though players still have the option to use the mouse).

Benny must relive all of his memories, both joyous and depressing, to persuade the Ferryman and Gatekeeper that he deserves a place in the realm of eternal happiness. If he fails, he’ll become one of the seagulls or ‘liar birds’ and suffer perpetual solitude in the dark sea.

3. Milk inside a bag of milk inside a bag of milk (PC / Nintendo Switch)

Helping a girl on her errand by going to the grocery store to buy milk, and heading back home, seems simple enough, right? However, this is not the case in the 2020 psychological visual novel developed by Nikita Kryukov called “Milk inside a bag of milk inside a bag of milk”. Players must choose the right dialogue in order to avoid triggering the main character to abruptly stop her journey in buying milk.

As the narrative unfolds, it becomes evident that the girl is grappling with severe psychosis, and the underlying reason for her traumas will be explained if the player is successful in completing the required task. With its short run time of twenty minutes, the game was able to convey the weight of suffering from a mental illness without any access to any form of help or support.

The unnamed protagonist (named Milk-chan by fans), has an inner monologue.


2. Needy Streamer Overload (PC/ Nintendo Switch)

“Needy Streamer Overload” is a management and raising simulation game by WSS Playground that was released in the year 2022. Players will become a manager for Ame, a live streamer with the alter-ego of ‘OMGkawaiiAngel-chan’. She has a goal of reaching one million followers within a month in order to be the best Internet Angel.  Every night, players (called ‘P-chan’ by Ame) will act as content moderators during live and are responsible for reviewing and deciding whether to delete or highlight comments from viewers.

Multiple endings are possible in the game so players should be wary of Ame-chan’s three crucial statuses which can greatly affect the route of the story: stress, affection, and mental darkness. It is also worth mentioning that this game can get into the depth of the problematic and dark aspects of idol culture, which may be sensitive for some individuals.
