The Best Games Period - Honorable Mention - Oíche Mhaith

Jack Gardner

Terry Cavanagh and Stephen Levelle (also known as Increpare) teamed up back in 2011 to create the video game equivalent of a short story. Oíche Mhaith (which translates to Irish for "good night") is free, takes about 20 minutes to complete, and will leave you a sobbing mess. Fair warning: it features some NSFW language and images if you're interested in giving it a try. It's basically an M-rated, 8-bit Flash game about a broken family as experienced by a kid. If you are looking for a game that will haunt you for days, Oíche Mhaith will give you much to think about.


You can find and play Oíche Mhaith on the Increpare website:


With schedules being what they are, sometimes coordinating a full episode of The Best Games Period can be difficult. When we can't have a proper discussion, we will be breaking off to do these shorter mini-casts, Honorable Mentions, to talk about fringe games that we might not otherwise be able to talk about on a full episode.



Outro music: VVVVVV 'Clubbed Baby VVVVVVeal' by Danny Baranowsky (


You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is (sometimes) available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!
