Ever since Steam dropped their standards for submission, there have been an alarming amount of games flooding the service. Outside of the usual AAA games, there have been some indie games that are pretty innovative.
Then there are the ones that stray into the category of so strange that we need to play them. Here are just ten of these games:
You play as a 12-year old girl who has decided to learn how sex works. You do so by mashing two dolls together until it resembles something sexual. Did we mention that the developers released the game for free?
Dropsy the Clown looks like a terrifying horror game but actually it is surprisingly touching. While Dropsy might look terrible, he means well and has made it a goal to hug every person with the dedicated hug button.
So, it’s the post-apocalypse where only men have survived and things get weird. Austin Jorgensen have made a game with fish-people, power rangers parodies and pro-wrestling make you feel like a horrible person by the end.
This is a 1 v 1 multiplayer game were you play as either a baby trying to kill themselves or a father trying to prevent that. I wish I could explain this oddly fun game in a way that wouldn’t turn away a lot of people. Be warned, the game is on Early Access and is probably the most incomplete game on this list.
You play as the limo driver of the first rotating limo service. The entire game is framed by bizarre cutscenes which involve talking skeletons and your terrifyingly French rival.
In most video games, you make an awful mess. Well, Runestorm decided to create an oddly addictive game which involves you cleaning up after a dramatic and disgusting fight.
This game allows you to hack anything but be careful because that door you’re hacking might hack and control you. Yep, a door will control you. All this wrapped up in a baffling story with cyberpunk style which is distinctly French.
You play a sentient piece of bread as it tries to achieve its dream of becoming toast. You complete this task using a control scheme which is just openly hostile to the player. Thanks, Bossa Studios!
Here’s a game that requires you to print out a paper manual and give it to your friends. You need your friends to try to explain how to disarm the increasingly complex bombs placed before you. It’s an oddly creative game from Steel Crate Games.
Do you like Twin Peaks? Did you feel that there was too much subtlety and not enough violence. Well, DigiFX Interactive have you covered with this point and click adventure game that straddles the line of too disturbing and too camp
Do you have a game you feel we should add to this list? Please leave a comment to let us know.
