Weirdness in Video Games


The most famous characters in video games are a plumber who’s super into cosplay, a mutant hedgehog with a bad attitude, and a yellow ball who eats ghosts. So it’s safe to say that video games don’t just tolerate weirdness, they embrace it. But some games are so bizarre, even the most jaded gamer has to do a double take. Here’s a look at some of the most bizarre games coming out in 2018. Biomutant Developer Stefan Ljungqvist describes Biomutant as a “a post-apocalyptic kung fu fable,” but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Biomutant actually allows players to create their own cyborg furry, a half machine-half animal neteller casinos sa expert with robotic implants and mutant abilities that allow for a ton of weird combinations. Ultimately, Ljungqvist says Biomutant is like “Kung Fu Panda, it has a touch of, you know, Mad Max in it… It’s more like Zelda.”

We have no idea what that means, but it sounds awesome. Morphies Law Instead of simply asking players to mow each other down with various weapons, Morphies Law takes a brand new approach to competitive shooters: when you damage a foe, the limb you hit shrinks and all the mass your opponent lost transfers to the corresponding limb on your character, making your body part larger. More mass means that you’re easier to shoot, but also paves the path to victory: at the end of the match, the team with the most mass wins. The result is both hilarious and challenging, as players with tiny heads and huge butts try to take out enemies with gigantic chests and stick legs. There’s something you won’t see in Call of Duty! Ooblets What if Farmville allowed you to send your corn out to attack other vegetables, Pokemon style? That’s the crazy premise behind Ooblets, which introduces the world to the concept of combat gardening. Defeating enemy crops rewards you with seeds which you can plant to grow your next batch of insanely cute warrior thralls. Plus, there seems to be a lot of dancing.

We can’t wait to grow em all! Wattam When it comes to bizarre games, one title stands out above the rest: the 2004 classic Katamari Damacy. Now designer Keita Takahashi is back with Wattam, where you control the mayor, who is a green cube with a mustache. Your goal is to befriend everything you come across, including trees, clouds, and multicolored turds. Naturally, if you’re successful, things might… explode? Just how Wattam actually works is still a mystery, but given Takahashi’s track record, one thing is certain: it’s going to be a lot of fun trying to figure it out. Just don’t ask what happened to Ted: “Woo!” Pig Eat Ball When a game’s marketing copy begins with “BARF-CENTRIC GAMEPLAY,” you know you’re in for a wild ride. Pig Eat Ball’s hero is Princess Bow, who is basically Pac-Man, except every time she eats something, she gets fatter. The solution?
