Strangest video game ever
« on: 12 Jul 2007, 08:40 »

Again with the hyperbole; I don't know if this is the strangest video game EVER created, but it's the strangest one I've ever seen. The best description I can come up with is that it's like someone took House of Leaves and OK Computer, combined them, and turned it into an interactive Flash app.

This game was beautiful art. But some parts did feel a little contrived. The Buddhist level stuck in a loop was funny, though.

I think the GI Joe game for Atari was plenty strange. Be a Giant Cobra... makes absolute bloody sense until it doesn't.

Now Custer's revenge, you can somewhat understand. Bigotted game + rape fantasy fulfillment for some derelicts.... but that it had sequels and pirated knock offs, THAT I think is the strange part.

I'm exploring the grow cube website, upon your recommendation Some of these games are lovely, particularly GROW v.1 which makes me smile  :-D I have it on in the background right now just for the gleeful music. Today was a good day. I also tryed the game this thread is actually about, seems a little pointless and random but hey, who am i to judge?

Of course then you have shittacular games like RE: Dead Aim.

It might not be the weirdest game in terms of gameplay, but god damn, when it comes to psychedelia I'm fairly sure you've never played anything quite like it.

Damn near gave me a flashback.  Fuck.

This strange Japanese game called "I Am The Chef." I got it on a Playstation Underground demo disc many years ago, and lost it equally as long ago..but the few times that I played it..wow. I was dumbstruck. You would be serving people beer or soup one moment, then chasing a stick figure through some back alley a moment later. Truly bizarre.

It's a tie between Psychonauts, American McGee's Alice (creepiest damn game EVER), and the co-op for Psi-Ops.  It involved one person controlling movement and the other controlling firing weapons, switching weapons, and using powers.  It was actually pretty cool.

Oh, and Pac-Txt, cool at first, but it gets boring after eating about two dots.

And if you're gonna go into Hentai Games, X-play did a special on them once.  There was one titled "Do You Like Horny Bunnies" and for some reason was about librarians.  Also, tentacle rape.  Lots and lots of tentacle rape.

I didn't really find Alice all that creepy. It tried so hard to be creepy and scary that it just came across kinda... sad. There are a lot creepier games out there (Yeah, yeah, System Shock, we all know). In my opinion for Creepiest Game (especially the premise behind it), check out an old Infocom game by the name of Suspended. The only game I know of that is literally IMPOSSIBLE to win your first time through without cheating.

So, another entry in the IGF awards recently recieved the demo treatment, Audiosurf.  Take Guitar Hero, Bejeweled, and DDR, and this is what you get.  You pick a song on your hard drive (I think it allows mp3, ogg, m4a, and wma), and it scans it through the engine, and creates a track you travel on.  You collect little colored blobs, and if you get three or more together, you collect points (5 different colors and point values).  There are also powerups that change colors of current pieces, special chameleon blocks, ships that give you special abilities.  At the end of it all, you can opt to upload your points to a regional database and see how well you scored compared to other people who played the same song.  At the moment, it's limited to 3 plays when you first download it and an additional play when it's updated, and it doesn't do songs over 12 minutes long yet (it's still in beta).  But it's a lot of fun.
