+1 for TLCTC!

It's such a great game. It's also really difficult which makes it fun.

I'd like to add all the games made by Cipher Prime (Auditorium, Fractal, Splice and pulse)

Also Bar Oasis (1, 1.5 and 2) which are really well written and interesting despite not really being a game.

Skyriders: A very polished platformer (In space!) that is very underrated.

Beat Sneak Bandit: One of the best rhythm game ever made

Nihilumbra: A portal-esque puzzle platformer with a good story

Get Out of My Galaxy: A polished and fun multitouch experience from outer space with levels that can be compared to some planets of Super Mario Galaxy (albeit not with the same scope or design)

Vincere Totus Astrum and Orion: Two really excellent 4x game.

Okay, just had to jump in, my favorite is

INFINITY PROJECT 2. This is an open world post apoctoliptic shooter, with side quest and an inventory system, perks are given through suits, this sifi fps epic feels like halo and fallout had a baby!!!

Mission Europa ce, this system shock rpg dungeon crawler is amaizing, wih thousands of wepon types and armors this 60+ hour game is awesome...

Underworlds, if you like diablo this is such a clone you will forget your not playing diablo, even more diablo like than dungeon hunter

The quest, as a big old school rpg player I was sucked in to arena and daggerfall, this is there turned based cousin.

Xenome, his fallout like game was fun and felt ridiculously massive, and at 99 cents you can't beet it.

There are tons more, but I'll just post five for now.

Would Polara qualify as "underplayed"? It is generally popular in the forum, but not outside!

Hey, just thought I'd be cheeky and list our game, Forever Lost: Episode 1. It's been getting some great user reviews but I am sad to say that it is definitely underplayed. I guess it's up to you guys to decide if it really is a hidden gem :-)

The link is here, please tell us what you think if you pick it up -

One amazing hidden gem is Cook, serve, delicious!. A hardcore restaurant management simulator!

It's new, but it's not getting any attention with all the buzz around. Check it out here:

Dont know if i mentioned it before but my other underated gem is...

Final Run

Its a great driving game, a bit like Mad Max where you have to shoot/damage other cars. Theres a great story to it with small cut scenes in between the different sections.

The graphics surprised me as they were far better than i thought from a small dev team. Post-apocalyptic type stuff i love and this game so far is pressing all the right buttons.

Well worth checking out
