Offbeat Indie Games That Will Make You Question Reality

Updated on

Every now and again, we encounter offbeat indie games that take us completely by surprise. Here are some of the weirdest titles that made us pause and wonder, “Just what the hell is this?”

Untitled Goose Game

House House devs decided to remind us just how terrifying goose can be. This is a puzzle-stealth game in which you take command of a majestic bird in order to make the lives of nearby villagers a living hell – or just slightly more inconvenient. The game feels oddly satisfying, as you chase a young boy who flees in terror, omit neighbors mail, or steal grandpas smoking a pipe. The humorous elements are neatly packed with a heartwarming graphic style, which makes Untitled Goose Game take a special place in our hearts.

Adventures With Anxiety

What a better way to protect someone than to constantly tell them about every little thing that can possibly go wrong? At least, that's a rationale of this spirit animal, aka human anxiety, who you'll be playing as. Your goal is to wear your human down until they have no option but to obey your orders. “Geez, that sounds kinda depressing Marko”, and you would be right, save for the fact that it is done in such a lighthearted way. Many people are dealing with anxiety at some point in their life and this game can teach you how to take it a bit less seriously.

The Procession To Calvary

Set as a sequel to the Four Last Things, this is another offbeat indie game made out of a mangled mosaic of Renaissance art. The procession to Calvary is also filled with Monty Python type dialogue, which can only be a good thing. Judging by the trailer, this is gonna be a pretty bizarre experience.

Partying in the middle ages was wild


Inkulinati is a turn-based action with quite an interesting angle. You will be leading an army of hand-drawn animals that are battling for survival. As if that's not weird enough, the battlefield is taking place on pages of a manuscript. Think brother Grimm stories, but more bloody. Yaza Games, the devs behind Inkulinati, promise engaging gameplay filled with offbeat medieval humor. We can hardly wait.
