(Eric)  - From Retro Gamer Nation - Tenebra (Commodore 64 / Commodore Plus4) 

Tenebra is an atmospheric puzzle game with rogue-like elements. Guide the hapless protagonist to the exit, but also keep in mind that he is afraid of darkness and refuses to walk in the dark areas.

(Eric) - “Nothing” is a ZX Spectrum 128K port of the PC game created by JoelLikesPigs for the Ludum Dare 45 competition. 

“You start with nothing.” 
The game takes the theme quite literally, by starting with no controls, no music, and no sound, and then rewarding your progress by gradually releasing various upgrades, some of which are crucial, many frankly useless, but still fun to discover 🙂
