Deadeus is a homebrew horror game for the Game Boy about a boy who has a nightmare telling him that everyone in his village will die in three days. He must then see if he can save anyone before those three days are up. There are many paths to take and many endings to encounter, adding replay value to a pretty short game.

You probably know Nancy Drew. She's a popular fictional character dating back to the 1930s who has a knack for solving (and attracting) all sorts of mysteries. Many movies, TV shows, and even video games were made about her.
In Nancy Drew: Message in a Haunted Mansion, Nancy comes to a hotel owned by her friend's friend where accidents have been happening, and rumors even say that it's a ghost behind all the mayhem, perhaps exacting some sort of revenge from beyond the grave. But eventually we find out the problem is a much simpler and common one instead, human greed, and that there's really nothing supernatural going on in the hotel, with the exception of Nancy Drew herself, who somehow knows solutions to puzzles without ever finding them and causes other strange stuff to happen as well in this run.

The Casebooks of Ace Harding includes Game Boy ports of Déjà Vu: A Nightmare Comes True!! (previously released on Game Boy) and Déjà Vu II: Lost in Las Vegas. Déjà Vu is a port of a 1987 game that had been made for various systems. It's a classic detective story, with you waking up to a dead body with total amnesia - you don't know who you are, or how you got there, and you don't know who the corpse is, either. In Déjà Vu II, however, you *do* remember who you are, and you also remember that you owe some mobster a lot of money.
Randil and Spikestuff complete both cases in record time, which also features a minor improvement in Case 2, thanks to better optimisation.

A storybook game like Shadowgate and Uninvited.
In this one you star as Ace Harding, a detective who wakes up having no idea who or where he is. As the game progresses you discover that you have been framed for a crime you didn't commit, and must find a way to clear your name.
This, the fifth submission of this game by the same author, is a 35.45 second improvement over the author's previous attempt. Most of the improvement comes from using a "leave bullet" bug, as detailed in the submission text.
See the Déjà Vu GameFAQs page for more information about this game (we recommend Mr. Kelly R. Flewin's Déjà Vu Speed Guide).

Author's commentary is provided in the movie file and the YouTube encode.
