Mr. Jones' Dream
This relatively short game was made for the TIGSource Adult/Educational Competition. Despite it being an entry under the "Adult" category, the game is not about pornography, rather it is about themes present in adult life. In the game, you play as the businessman Mr. Jones, who is tired of his adult life. Following an abrupt layoff (times are tough), he goes home, falls asleep, and has a vivid dream that both parallels and contrasts his waking life.
The dream's atmosphere changes gradually (kind of like "Eversion"), and Mr. Jones' own form changes as well. The game features a variety of themes often present in adult life, including greedy capitalism, pity, violence, religion, and sex (though it is presented in a purely biological sense). Many of these themes are approached with parody and humor. In the end, the grey drab of Mr. Jones' adult life can be fought with only one thing: creativity.
All controls are explained both in-game and in the README.
This game was made with Game Maker 7, Pro Edition, and it does not change your resolution (though you should have at least 800x600 resolution for it to run properly).

* The "puzzles" (in a way, the whole game is one big puzzle) can get tricky at times - I encourage people to post hints, though the use of "Spoiler" warnings is at your own discretion. I can give hints, too.
