I did a blog post some time back about quick, free games to make you smile, but this time I have promised strange, and strange I shall deliver.
Sometimes I really love short games that can be played in just a few hours or less (these all took me between a half hour to two hours). And sometimes I really love weird things. So if you’re like me, then I think you’re gonna love these too!
This was a pretty cool little game, though I’m not sure if “game” is the right word since you don’t actually do much. It’s all about the story and the world. The visuals were great though, and I loved the futuristic cyberpunk/dystopian setting. It creeped me out a bit. The controls for moving the guy around were clunky, at least with a keyboard, but it’s free, so I can’t really complain. It only takes about an hour to get through, and I enjoyed it!

The Good Time Garden
This is, without a doubt, the weirdest and most disturbing game I’ve ever played. And I mean that as a compliment.
The setting is just a bunch of throbbing, lumpy body parts, and the gameplay is finding food and throwing it into your blob friend’s mouth.
I’ll admit I got stuck at one point and thought maybe that was the whole game, but no, you’ll know when it’s the end. Also be sure to check out the controls on the store page before you start.
Anyway, I dug this! What a weird little game. Sometimes weird is exactly what you need. It was a unique 30-minute distraction from life. But it’s definitely NSFW, so just don’t play it in public :-P
I Love You, Colonel Sanders!
I played a Colonel Sanders dating sim, and it was amazing.
(There’s a sentence I never thought I’d say.)
This was so weird and ridiculous that it transcended into amazingness. I cannot overstate how absolutely incredible this game is.
You know how sometimes ridiculous things are just ridiculous instead of funny? Well whoever made this hit that perfect sweet spot.
– Colonel Sanders is hot.
– Your rivals are hot and have outfits way too sexy for cooking.
– Your teacher is a dog.
– One of the students is a kitchen appliance robot.
– The text is hilarious.
– The whole thing is essentially a KFC ad, which somehow only makes it more hilarious.
– There’s romance!
– There’s cooking!
– There’s drama!
– There’s MURDER!
I laughed so much. I say this with complete sincerity: If you do not play this, you are missing out!
