I'm sharing here, in no particular order, because it might inspire you too!
(includes observations about comedy in games at the end)
this one inspired a few really fun conversations.
it's funny but in a unique way. also the exaggerated cartoon style.
i played this so much way back. i feel like it's been unfairly forgotten. it's a strange, and different experience. worth checking out.
this one is absolutely fascinating and intriguing. i love this one. the art style, and dialogue, it's so non-pretentiously honestly "off".
up till this point i've had interesting talks about the cartoon style mixed with the bizarre... i remember old-school games doing that a lot but it kind of got lost in the discussion. most of what i have to say rn will not fit into a tweet.
i played this one when it was new. i loved it (still do). it was strange and different. still is.
i remember this when it first came out and totally forgot about it. it's an interesting one.
actually vaguely remember playing this a long time ago. seeing it again is kind of inspiring because it's still so unique.
liz showed me most of these last weekend. this one is also really intriguing especially for its visual style.
what i love about these sort of things is how easily games become bizarre, sometimes unintentionally.
especially with jokes. certain comical settings that would be understandable, or accessible, in other mediums tend to turn into a fever dream when put in games. 1/5
just giving it a cartoon aesthetic is not enough to communicate comedy. 2/5
you have to do a lot more to communicate humor otherwise it leans into the area of surrealism and bizarre. 4/5
