Strange and Beautiful

Game list created by Mackenzi Avatar

Looking for games that are gorgeous and bizarre, strange and succulent, wild and wonderful. Anything with a distinctive vision, fresh style, or otherwise dedicated to being beautiful, in an odd way.

A listal version of my Steam curator page Strange and Beautiful. If you want to read my pretentious, flowery prose about weird games I can't stop staring at directly from the source, check it out on Steam HERE.

I'll add more to this list as I add to my curator page, which happens as I find new and beautiful games. :D

"A snowy nightmare pieced together in a modern construction paper style. Soft textures muffle the haunting imagery as you trudge through one pretty, fuzzy, eerie winter night. A+ Sound design."

"Experience bold symbolic imagery in the trippy balancing act/roller coaster called OVIVO. Mandala-like visuals and rolling, dizzying gameplay lead the player on a high-contrast spiritual journey."

"Playfully abstract and joyfully kinetic; themes of mindfulness, growth, and presence accentuated by spreading colors and satisfying textures. Find peace through the path of bondage. "

"Still images can't capture the beauty of Rain World. Rolling clouds and darkening weather, glitchy popping static blackouts, a living environment both lush and rusted. Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain..."

"Post-human pixelated underwater world that has lasso'd together near-cartoonish color and somber grossness. Does a great job of showing just how strange real life sea creatures are. "

"An eerie version of hell made of a plain dark room, where perpetual movement and endless demonic spawn construct a stunning, beautiful dance of death. Play late at night on a big screen."

"The illustrations of this robot world draw out a sense of both whimsy and anxiety. It exudes playfulness and childlike discovery in a world seemingly moments away from rusting into garbage."

"Cartoonlike illustrations of very organic, almost psychadelic aliens, planets, and space ships lends Out There a truly fantastical, brilliantly saturated and well-lit vision of outer space. "

"A patient lucid dream of a puzzle game, made of soft bright light and fuzzy, obscuring shadow, retraining your eyes and brain to differentiate what is solid and what is the abyss. "

"A candy-colored psychadelic alien innerspace treats you to wonderful rainbows, patterns, and lights, which are balanced out by the incredibly simple single button controls."

"Pleasantly textured linocut-style graphics with down-to-earth color schemes lend Incredipede an artsy, solid, hand-made feel that goes well with its creepy creature creation puzzling premise."

"A bright and playful point and click microcosm, bringing tiny bugs and plants into incredible magnification, charming caricature, and excellent composition."
Add items to section

""Cinematic" describes this charming and emotive walking sim both in its quick cutting visual style as well as its distinctive and intentional vision, marking it as the work of an autuer."
Add items to section

"Python-esque animation paired with classical art imagery creates a unique visual cabinet of curios in Rock of Ages, with as much oddity and humor as any strategic bowling game requires (quite a lot)."
Add items to section

"Hand-drawn art as energetic as the shoot-em-up gameplay. The use of shape and color to express humor, draw up visual puns, and convey beautiful imaginative locations is unparalleled."
Add items to section

"Ethereal scenery carved from solid and studied landscapes, the sureness of the main character's somber quest reflected in the careful creation of each scene. Influenced a generation of indie games."
