Amid all the big names and blockbusters are the “other” games of 2020. These are the games that are a touch on the odd side, either venturing outside of typical genre definitions or providing unorthodox worlds and stories to get lost in. Let’s take a look at 10 weird games of 2020 and what makes them worth playing.
I Am Dead
I Am Dead is a game about, well, being dead. It’s actually about museum curator Morris Lupton who’s recently passed on. However, a volcano is set to erupt on the island of Shelmherston and it’s up to Morris, along with the ghost of his dog Sparky, to stop it. How do you ask? Why, by venturing across the island and discovering different ghosts, using X-ray vision to dissect the surroundings and ultimately piece together the island’s big mystery while making cheery observations throughout. Equal parts adventure, puzzle, exploration and humor, I Am Dead is a charming title with an unorthodox premise.
