Jake Elliott seems like a new face this year and already his games have been spectacularly interesting and impressive. There is not a single release by him that I can't enthusiastically recommend to anyone, and the best part is his games are all completely free.
His latest game A House in California is a point-and-click adventure game based on his siblings with some very "old school" graphics used extremely well. Like his previous works I can't encourage you to play this game enough. It's divided into four characters, each with its own creative use of the controls and the same similar settings, each bringing out the special personality of these people the creator obviously cares deeply about.
You can download the game HERE. Enjoy!
