FLOTILLA
Gorgeous retro-styled, genuinely-3D space combat strategy game for PC and (hurrah!) Xbox 360 Indie Games. Love the jaunty, Jetsons-y typefaces, the gentle piano music as combat plays out, the turn structure, and the hints at what's to come in the preview video. (Although: why anyone would make ships with weak bottoms (as opposed to bottoms & tops) in a genuinely 3D game seems strange. Gravity Bone was delightful, so this could be great; will buy it as soon as it's out.

Continuity
Linked almost everywhere by now, but still: a marvellous, marvellous game, dead simple to play, thoughtful, and well-paced. A must-play, really.

Fig. 8 Trailer
"In the game you are rewarded for keeping your tracks together while navigating through the surreal world of an "architectural" diagram. The camera moves in continuous motion and the object is to finish the course with as many points as possible." Watch the trailer; it's astoundingly pretty. Can't wait for this one!

FAST GAMES - Little Wheel
"There was once a world of living robots. But one day a bad accident occured in the main power generator. The world fell into a deep sleep. Bring life back to the world!" Wonderful animation and art design, and a charming little game. It'll take you about 10-20 minutes. It's brilliant.

The shape and the sound: Steph Thirion's iPhone debut, Eliss - Offworld
Gosh, that looks lovely - and bonus points for a preview video that films the iPhone, showing the way fingers work on its surface, rather than just showing the results of interactions.

Play Auditorium
"Auditorium is about the process of discovery and play. There are no right or wrong answers; there are many ways to solve every puzzle." Sounds gorgeous; looks beautiful. So much loveliness.

星探 [hoshi saga] (nekogames)
How had I never seen this before? Beautiful little puzzle game: find the star in the level. Each level has a different mechanic. Each makes me smile.

BBC - KS2 Bitesize - Games - Questionaut
Lovely. A flash game that combines point-and-click with KS2 revision problems, made by the people who build Samorost. Actually fun; actually educational. And just beautiful to play and listen to.
