The Stout Game Expo (SGX) invites you to play dozens of free games at our semi-annual gaming event. The games were created by freshmen, sophomores, juniors and senior students on a variety of platforms.

 
 
 

Aluna 

As her sailor’s hat, the treasured reminder of her seafaring father, is tossed by the breeze just out of reach, Selene must make a journey to reclaim it. As she wanders her house at night, she encounters locked doors with mysterious voids on them in the shape of objects such as a sailboat, an anchor, or a whale. To fill in the voids, Selene combines toys and household objects into shadows matching the form. Each successive puzzle reveals more of the story. Aluna is a meditative game that invokes a feeling of intrigue and cognitive amusement. 

 
 
 
 

Solace 

Solace invites players to delve into a story about emotional connections realized over a cup of tea. Set in a Tang Dynasty-inspired tea house, players control an apprentice named Zhishan. As the player learns more about each guest, they serve not just tea, but the healing powers of empathy. Amidst the tea house lurks a mysterious presence, and the more patrons the player serves, the closer they will come to meeting their greatest challenge.

 
 
 
 

Wisper 

Being a hero has never been more of a breeze!  Take control of the wind and rise to the challenge of collecting and destroying the cursed fractions of a shattered storm to restore the tropical island of Sunshore.  Your presence may be unseen, but your actions don’t go unnoticed.
