    Default What weird, interesting, obscure game are you playing or excited for?

    Hey!

    We do our best at PC Gamer to shine the spotlight on ignored games that are deserving of attention, whether it's an obscure, unfinished indie game or a bizarre open world MMO. It's something we're always trying to do better, though.

    So a quick question: Are there any unusual or obscure games out there that you personally love, or are looking forward to, that you think PC Gamer should write about?

    Black Prophecy. For a game that looks so good and plays very well and is free to play. I am surprised it gets little to no coverage.

    Just about any game I play is weird and interesting.

    I would say I am excited for TAGAP 2. Been out for a while but I have yet to end it.

    Postal 2. I still have it on my old laptop and occasionally play it.

    Maybe it's not famous in the market.

    [URL="http://en.wulin.gpotato.eu/mini/Index.aspx?m=process"]Age of Wulin[/URL] - I don't really know why I'm looking forward to this game. It's an eastern-style MMO based around the whole 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' kind of martial arts with running up walls, across water and jumping high. I imagine I'll end up treating this like I did Champions Online and forgetting to play the game and instead just have fun with the travel powers for a few days.

    [URL="http://www.lofigames.com/index.php"]Kenshi[/URL] - An interesting little game I found through [URL="http://www.pcgamer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=12459"]Lizard's indie game thread[/URL]. It's a squad-based, RPG. strategy...thing. Currently in alpha so it looks a little under-developed at the moment.

    [URL="http://www.paradoxplaza.com/games/salem"]Salem[/URL] - This was covered in PCG once or twice but only in very small sections. It's some sort of survival, exploring, crafting MMO (I'm guessing like Wurm). Sounded different but I can't find much information on it at the moment.

    [URL="http://www.starwraith.com/arvochalliance/index.htm"]Arvoch Alliance[/URL] - Another one I found on Lizard's indie thread. This game is actually already out and my gaming backlog is the only thing keeping me from buying this right now. It's a 'space combat simulator' so you mess around with the ships settings and go blasting things. I loved the demo.

    [URL="http://www.infinity-universe.com/Infinity/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=14&Itemi d=35"]Infinity[/URL] - I can't remember exactly why I put this on my watch list but I think it has something to do with being a free roaming space MMO (like Eve) but with real-time combat. The thing that made this game really stand out for me is the engine that allows you to go seamlessly from space to planet surface.

    [URL="http://www.ftlgame.com/"]Faster Than Light[/URL] - Already covered in PCG last issue (I think). You control little guys in a spacecraft and try to keep them alive. Sims in space mixed with Dwarf Fortress 'fun' maybe?

    [URL="http://www.sauropodstudio.com/"]Castle Story[/URL] - You get little yellow guys to build castles after mining out stone and making into blocks. It's quite new, even the 'About' page is not yet written. I think I just like the idea of building castles. Mmm, castles.
