What weird/intelligent/artistic video games are you playing?


#1

A good friend of mine who is a coding whizz and general authority on great independent games recently coerced me into playing and subsequently finishing the game Inside. After not gaming for 8+ years, my mind completely blown. I then took his and my other friend’s suggestion to play Hypnospace Outlaw.

(Here’s a review for anyone who isn’t familiar: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/game/hypnospace-outlaw/

And a link to the game’s Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/844590/Hypnospace_Outlaw/ )

Hypnospace was so incredibly hilarious, nuanced, intelligent and fun that I’m just craving something to play next.

Is there anything else in the world of independent games that you’d consider a “must-play”? The only thing I have on my itinerary right now is Kentucky Route Zero.

Inside was great, loved what it geared into towards its ending

i recommend jonathan blow’s the witness. cool puzzle game that’s all about changing the way you see things

Power Shovel for PSX

@bths80 I was also going to rec the witness, god I fucking love that game.

Undertale could be a good option as well. Really cool concept and fun gameplay imo.

Completely hooked on Dreams on PS4. It doesn’t really get any weirder, artsier or creative®. :slight_smile:

Here are a couple of things I’ve made in it so far:

Nothing spectacular yet, but the potential is flabbergasting!

@Rubberduckdebugger Just bought hypnospace outlaw and hoooly shit, really enjoying it.

Minecraft. Started this world yesterday. For me it’s kinda chill and relaxed workout in design when I want to do something creative but don’t feel like making music or something serious. And it goes pretty well with ambient or noise in background.

@wirejunk minecraft is so dope.

I got obsessed with Minecraft earlier this year and finally caved in and bought it in May when it went on sale for its 10th anniversary. I spent a lot of time in my first world building an elaborate system of bases and connecting them through a transit system of minecarts and powered rails.

1st and 3rd pics is when I gave my brother a tour of my world. 4th pic is an outpost (forgot where it is now) for a mining expedition.

When building bases, I try to preserve as much of the original landscape as much as possible. I called my first base Flower Fortress because it’s located in a flower forest and the flora is still very much preserved.

so I know I’m late but I just started no mans land on my ps and it’s all I want to play lol. The resource grind isn’t boring and the main campaign seems compelling. Anyone else play?
