I am looking for some dark/weird/offbeat games.


I am trying to find some dark (like Crow, Oscura or Nihilumbra) or offbeat games. I enjoy World of Goo and Waking Mars and I am open to all suggestions and genres. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I played Yesterday and thought the plot and story was really good. It was defiantly dark and offbeat.

Time Ducks takes the cake for me. Pizza vs. Skeletons is pretty damn weird. You also might want to try Catball Eats it All. You see, you're a cat. With no legs or arms; yo know, a ball 'o cat. You inflate yourself to float, roll, and bounce yourself around a circular, bizarrely shaped world to eat all sort of stuff, then, when fully fattened, you Eat the game world up piece by piece.

Weird platformer (very dark, everything made of shadows).
Quite simplistic, I got it when it was free

Not dark, but this one is a very offbeat and funny Metroidvania style game

It's a platformer thts dark and definitely weird. You control a baby carriage and try to escape a man in a cape and top hat. You must avoid obsticles such as a drunkard throwing beer bottles at the carriage and crows that try to fly away with the baby

Oh, and you can launch the baby at the enemies angry birds style
