Amnesia Fortnight is a bundle of prototypes by Double-Fine Productions. These prototypes are quickly developed games without any real market limitations.
Basically, develop and have fun.
The bundle includes a classic RPG, an arena boss fight, sandbox robot creator/fighter, space sim, spooky adventure, platform adventure, trick-or-treat adventure and a sandbox music game.

Autonomous was the only prototype I had problems with. It ran extremely slow and any settings changed in the Launcher would not apply. I researched for several weeks on Unity 3D, Autonomouse, Wine, Flags and Arguments, but found nothing that would improve the settings.
All the rest of the Prototypes ran perfectly. A few prototypes did not support widescreen resolutions. Each prototype has different controls and a few of them may seem confusing. Remember these are prototypes, not finished games.
