Icarus (Sagan Yee (c) 2011)

Loosely based on the Greek myth of Icarus, if Icarus was a 20-something slacker trying to cope with the genius of his inventor father. Also, instead of building wax wings to escape an island, you make a jet pack! What looks like a top-down adventure game is actually inspired more by the narrative conventions of interactive fiction than traditional RPGs: No combat, a character-driven story, and of course lots and lots of reading.
