More colors – a selection of psychedelic games

Surrealism, original design solutions, bright palette – these are just some of the attributes of any psychedelic game. Often, such projects can boast of atypical gameplay mechanics, a very peculiar plot and an abnormal atmosphere. Do you like truly unusual games? To you in this collection!

Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark
Microsoft Windows, Linux, macOS

Team17 Digital has always had a rich imagination, it is enough to remember the series of games about the battle “worms” Worm, which made a lot of hype after the release of Worms Armageddon. Under the wing of the studio, Italic Pig presented players with an equally funny Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark.

Quantum mechanics, “acid palette”, original setting and good platforming. And Shreddinger’s cat in the lead role, which is looking for missing subatomic particles.

The game captivates with its visual style, although the elements of the platforming are implemented in it at a fairly high level. You shouldn’t wait for the prohibitive complexity, the project is not aimed at this. But he will be able to give a dozen pleasant hours during the passage.

Hohokum

Hohokum is hard enough to wrap in some kind of genre framework. You will not find complex gameplay mechanics here – players will spend most of the passage trying to explore the mysterious world of the game.

The game encourages free play. You will not find any “tutorials” and tips, there is no plot and missions in the usual sense, and you will not be able to save progress in the current world, if the gamer does not complete all the tasks prepared by game designers, you will not be able to save progress in the current world. In total, Hohokum features 17 worlds, each of which has its own recognizable style and to-do list. This can be either escorting its inhabitants to another part of the location, or searching for objects with which you will interact during the exploration.

First of all, Hohokum impresses with its visual style and meditative music. In general, the rest of the game has little to offer gamers, which does not make it “worse” or “better” compared to other projects. Hohokum is its own surreal world, in which the artistic component is put in the first place, not the gameplay.

Loco-Roco

Japanese developers have always been very imaginative. Add in this original concept and colorful palette of colors and we have Locoroco. One of the main hits of the PlayStation Portable smoothly migrated to the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.

From a gameplay point of view, Locoroco is a canon platformer. The main task at each level is to move from point A to point B, as well as collect items and search for secrets. The main character is a spherical creature who sings a song in a fictional language throughout the entire level. The more the main character collects the berries scattered around the location, the more he will be.

Also, he character can disband, and the player will take control of several “small creatures.” More berries – more creatures, which allows you to penetrate into hard-to-reach places on the levels and diversifies the gameplay quite well.

In total, the game features 40 levels, eight playable characters, three mini-games and the ability to equip your own house for your creatures. All platformer lovers – be sure to familiarize yourself.

Far cry 3 blood dragon

One of the brightest spin-offs in the gaming industry and just a great addition to Far Cry 3. The developers decided to move away from the standard DLC concept in the style of “add new quests, guns and missions” and presented the players with a different setting. With all that it implies.

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon can be called a reference to the most popular action films of the 80s. Neon, deliberate pathos and the never-ending feeling that you are somewhere in another reality. The addition surprises at least with its visual style. Weapons, enemies, decorations – everything has been redesigned, and when you first look at the DLC, it’s hard to guess that we are talking about a spin-off to Far Cry 3.

The developers approached the development of Blood Dragon with a soul. Here you can find references to such classics of cinema as “Terminator”, “Predator”, “Robocop”, “Star Wars”, “Alien” and even to “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. The soundtrack deserves special attention, which will appeal to all fans of synthwave and its subgenres.

Catherine: Full Body
Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, Windows

Love, anime and puzzles.

One of the most important aspects of interactive entertainment is to give the gamer the ability to influence the world of the game. In the case of Catherine, this is expressed in several endings, each of which is the result of the player’s actions that he has to do in the course of the game.

The gameplay of the game is divided into two parts. In the first, the main character will have to conduct a large number of dialogues (hello, the Persona series), the second is an atypical and rather original platformer. This is not to say that the game mechanics used in this part are amazing – the main focus here is on the setting. All puzzles represent an introspection of the protagonist’s experiences in his dreams, with all that it implies.

If you are not intimidated by the Japanese style, and you appreciate original stories in games, Catherine: Full Body may be one of the main revelations of recent years. Well, for those who warmly relate to Japanese animation, it is generally imperative to get to know each other.

Psychonauts

Tim Schaefer has always distinguished himself by developing original and truly distinctive games. The story of the protagonist Razputin is an illustration of how complex and complex the consciousness of each person can be.

Psychonauts has absorbed all the best from the genre of 3D platformers, but this is not the main value of the game. Double Fine Productions have created a unique game lore centered on the camp of “psychonauts” or people with advanced psychic abilities. The main character finds himself in this camp, where he is given the opportunity to penetrate the consciousness of the characters.

Each of them has its own internal conflicts, ideology and principles. Explore the inner world of each of them is tantamount to traveling to different universes, with its own laws and visual style. This approach makes the passage of each of the levels different from the others, and the game does not let you get bored.

The game does not hesitate to refer to the works of Carl Gustav Jung and Sigmund Freud, and also successfully integrates such an ideology into the Psychonauts universe.

Shooty Fruity

Fruit mutants against the shop assistant.

An important criterion for any psychedelic game is the high degree of strange and unreasonable situations. Shooty Fruity is doing well in this respect. Shooting crazy animate fruits that pose a threat to your store is something new for the gaming industry.

PlayStation VR virtual reality helmet + VR Worlds game
In terms of gameplay, the project does not bring anything original to the genre. This is a classic VR shooter where you can shoot enemies. Stylistically a little more interesting – a nice color palette, good animation and a fairly detailed environment with a lot of small objects. Thanks to game designers and artists, thanks to whom any shootout turns into an insane kaleidoscope of colors.

Shooty Fruity is a “virtual shooting range” for those who are tired of the same type and too serious games. The player will receive his required dose of endorphins. But counting on the fact that the project will be able to drag out for tens of hours is hardly worth it.
