A brief description of some of the games in this bundle

"Return of Red Riding Hood, New Adventures" is a sequel to "Return of Red Riding Hood". This time Red Riding Hood and her mom will be baking pastries with ham, sorrel and cottage cheese, while finding themselves again in ridiculous and funny situations.

"Am I a Monster?"

You have become a werewolf! But that beastly appearance is not as dangerous as the beast growing inside you. Are you a monster or a human? That is the answer you need to discover.

"The Returning of the Quantum Cat"

The most famous game on the INSTEAD engine. You play as a forester, whose cat was abducted. The search leads you to a strange institute. Help save Barsik!

"The Watch"

The starship "Pilgrim" is heading to Gliz 667c. Estimated flight time -- dozens of years. Every member of the crew is taking a 48 hour watch shift, while the others stay in cryosleep. This story tells about the events during one of such shifts.


This is an educational game, which originally was written by Oleg Shamshura in the 1990's. Master the basics of programming by solving logic tasks based around cargo transportation by means of a spaceship.

Thanks to the cross-platform INSTEAD engine, we managed to release our bundle on lots of platforms. You can choose any link from the links below.
