With all the recent talk of games like King Of Dragon Pass, and the games in our top 10 lists that don’t really fit, I thought it’d be interesting for us to recommend each other all the eclectic, unique, or just otherwise weird games that we love.
To start off I’ll recommend my weird game, Dungeon Of The Endless.
It was made by Amplitude, the folks who made Endless Space and Endless Legend and is set in the same universe. It’s about a prison ship that crashes on an unknown alien planet and ends up falling into some kind of dungeon. The goal is to help the survivors of the crash escape the dungeon by ascending it’s many levels. It’s a weird mix of a bunch of different genres. The best I can sum it all up is that it’s a rouge-lite, tower defense, resource management, dungeon crawl, RPG. You control the survivors as they move room to room fight their way up the dungeon, but you can also build different machines and turrets in some of the rooms you find to help you out. It might sound clunky on paper, but all these elements come together wonderfully. You unlock different survivors and mods to the dungeon as you go for future runs. You can play it co-op as well which I highly recommend. It’s a BLAST with friends.
It’s this weird little thing made by a dev people associate with 4X games, and honestly I would say its the best game they’ve ever made.
So! That’s my weird game recommendation, and I’d love to hear yours!
