Weird / Unusual Art iOS Games

Hi guys,

I'm an avant-garde filmmaker, with a background in fine art. Naturally, my taste in gaming is a little unorthodox; leaning towards the more experiential and artistic.

If anyone could recommend any games like Sword & Sworcery, Continue?9876543210, Home, The Graveyard, LIMBO, Nihilumbra et al. then that would be fantastic!

Thanks guys.

I totally agree with the above mentions - not a huge amount I can add but I'll try. They won't fit the brief necessarily perfectly but might open sligh tangents for you to enjoy!

Cyro
Numerity
Hundreds
The Last Door
The Silent Age
Octagon
Papa Sangre
Rymdkapsel
Device 6
Beat Sneak Bandit

There are probably many more but my brain has failed under the pressure. If I had to choose a couple to really single out, I'd go with ICycle, The Silent Age, Papa Sangre and Contre Jour.
