Isles of Min

Isles of Min is a wonderful, original classic top-down style RPG, reminiscent of many indie games on Mac. You play as a male fighter (there's zero magic in this game) and travel over an island solving quests and gradually solving the main story. The game was well written, with interesting interactions with NPCs, and interesting quests - diverse, just as the game claims - with a choice of ways to solve them.

Isle of Min could sorely use a teleportation/fast travel system, there was quite a bit of back and forth, however the gameworld isn't too huge. There's zero grinding, partly as nothing respawns, but it's beautifully balanced so you should have enough gold to upgrade your gear appropriately. It's a simple game, but has a lot of potential, and future chapters are apparently planned.
