Unique artistic games

Looking for some artistic games. I played Year walk, Limbo, Superbrothers S&S and Waking Mars but it ends here. The games I'm looking for should be heavy in art but also offer a unique gameplay experience, that you couldn't easily put into any classic genre. A good example would also be the upcoming game Tengami.
Any suggestions?


Year Walk:


Limbo:


Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP:


Waking Mars:


Another world:


Machinarium:


(upcoming) Tengami:


(upcoming) dreamroom:

You must try it out to judge. Each person will have his own opinion.

I payed 5 or 4$ for Waking Mars, but couldn't really get into it. I played it for 2 hours but got bored of it after that. The "puzzles" we're just too bland and not much of a challenge. The story is kinda interesting though, but just a good story wasn't enough to keep me hooked. Again, that's just one guy's opinion.

Kometen and tengami seem cool and i hope to try them out soon, some of the other were a letdown though.

There was a gorgeous racing game called like Draw Racer or something. The colors were black and white. You drew where you wanted your car to go I believe. Anyone remember the name of this game?

The one where the environment (the city/buildings) got colored after you completed a circle around it?
