I actually prefer them to modern shows that try to imitate anime. This might be an unpopular opinion, but I'd go so far as to claim 2000s Western attempts at anime were much better done than modern attempts, if shows like High Guardian Spice are anything to go by anyways:I've always loved Western attempts at imitating anime in the early 2000s/late 90s. We didn't quite understand the artstyle or themes nearly as well as we do now, and there's something very specific about the way it looks that can't be replicated; At this point, we've dissected the anime/manga style well enough to be able to replicate it, but back then any attempt would fall just short enough for us to say "Oh yeah, that's Western."

Neat list. Only one I've actually played was infini. I got stuck on a level that was just too tough for me and rather than toughing it out I just moved onto something else. Interesting weird game though.Hipnagogia - LSD Dream Emulator inspired adventure game, literally about exploring dreams, but not randoom. First levels are cool and relaxing, last one are nightmares. It's cool that all levels are good designed and have unusual style. There is also kind of sequel, but I didn't like it as much as original one

Agony - very edgy and buggy horror game. We play as tormented soul in hell, where everyone is searching for the Red Godess. When we die we are becoming a soul and we have to posses new vessel to play as it. At the beginning we can posses only other martyrs, but later we can get into demons that was after us. It has great audio, magnificent level design. Graphic is ok, sometimes it sucks. Plot is fire, but it is recommended to know Christian lore to understand it fully. Game was buggy as fuck after relase, and got fatal reviews. Also it is not mainstream styled horror, so it is not for everyone. PC version is ok already, idk how about consoles but Nintendo port is still extra buggy

Succubbus - sequel to Agony. It has better reviews, and got better start than Agony. Edgy and filled with sexual content. We play as Succubus and fight with whole hell to get the revenge on Baphometh. Basically has gameplay like Doom from 2016 but we focus on meele here. That's nice one too. Oh, and we can customize our character ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) yes, You can change all curves. This game is really filled with sexual stuff, and it feels tryhard sometimes, but basically its cool

Infini - Enough of this edgy stuff! Infini is dreamcore/weirdcore masterpiece. It is game filled with weird riddles, in gameplay and plot. Basically every chapter has different gameplay, in one we will fly, in other we will free fall... this game is so weird that it is hard to describe it for me. At least look at gameplay, I very recommend that one

Osmos - indie game of same type liki agar.io But with beautiful visuals and soundtrack. We play as a cell, and we are eating other cells, all with great ambient ost witch such classics like Loscil, Gas or Biosphere. This game is dope

Slide in The Woods - typiacall PS1 styled horror from Itch.io. Nice idea, nice design, nice everything. Game for one evening, highly recommended

Tormentum Dark Sorrow - Point and click adventure game based on Giger and Beksinski. Nice one, cool plot, cool music, cool everything

Imscared - old indie horror game wich takes gameplay to Your deskopt, leaving You files on computer. Nice one, really, one of thie first indie games that took me into that vibe. Has creepypasta atmosphere, and it's game from times when Jeff The Killer was "cool". It makes me feel nostalgic, but it's very good game, really

Neko Yume - basically LSD Dream Emulator, but with new levels and with cats. Nice one
View attachment 81428
Yume Nikki 3d - Fangame, but really nice one. Controls works fine, and there are new levels and effects.

Lone Survivor - 2d horror game inspired by Silent Hill, but has clearly more of that dreamy vibe. Great soundtrack and story, lot of survival mechanics

Yeah, Infini can sometimes burn Your brain. Do You remember wich level was it?Neat list. Only one I've actually played was infini. I got stuck on a level that was just too tough for me and rather than toughing it out I just moved onto something else. Interesting weird game though.
Made an account just to post this,
I love this game!
Slay by Sean O'Connor, it's the only game i have on my phone. It was originally released in the 90s and got ported for mobile at some point. The local multiplayer is quite fun, the sounds are wonky at best but they become an interesting, almost hypnotic sorta rythim once your campaign get's really going.
You basically start out with a map of ranomized tiles that you can conquer to gain territory, which in turn gives you currency. The troops of each territory consume a certain number of currency so in order to win you must conquer with stronger and stronger troops while producing an excess of currency, otherwise the entire territory dies and must pass one turn, which is basically suicide on the hardest difficulty.
There is a multitude of strategies of conquering an enemy to starve them out. There are even foliage mechanics you can use to your advantage. This game is super simple on the surface with a very clear ruleset that makes it's exploitation super fun for me.
Originally found it through this video which gives you a nice overview if you're interested in trying it out.
Heres an image of your average campaign. There are loads of levels, you can generate your own, and theres a wide variety of textures you can use.

Lone survivor its a survivor horror masterpiece, few games manage to scratch the golden era svh nowadays.Lone Survivor - 2d horror game inspired by Silent Hill, but has clearly more of that dreamy vibe. Great soundtrack and story, lot of survival mechanics
Never heard of it but looks exactly like the type of stuff I loved playing in my childhood, have to check that out!Yeah, Infini can sometimes burn Your brain. Do You remember wich level was it?
That looks nice, it reminds me Battle For Wesnoth somehow
Ok, I will show some more known stuff but it's still something worth know
Warhammer 40000 Mechanicus - It's 41 milenium. Humanity is united under the rule of a totalitarian Imperium dominated by the cult of an Emperor deprived of consciousness and kept alive by special apparatus. In the Imperium, apart from the one true faith in the God-Emperor, only one religion is tolerated; Mechanicus cult. Its members pray to the dark Machine God Omnissiah and amputate subsequent parts of their bodies and brains, replacing them with mechanical implants intended to bring them closer to the holy machine.

In the game, we lead an expedition of tech priests that visits a planet that is the tomb of the ancient race of Necrons, who, like the worshipers of the Omnissiah, rejected their bodies and transferred into metal skeletons. Unfortunately, there is no attempt to reach an agreement, because the Necrons are pure abomination and desecration of sacred machines, and what's more, they don't pray to toasters, and in general, they are aliens and the Imperium is racist.

We fight those f00ckers in niceturn based combat system, wich is one of three segments of gameplay. The second one is the visiting to the tomb itself, which is straight from old RPG games - we move the team from room to room, sometimes we will encounter a fight, other times there will be a random event in which we have to make a plot decision. The third segment of the gameplay is staying on our holy ship, where we accept the mission and improve our Tech Priests.
Oh, and this game has DLC in wich we fight Hereteks (literally xd). Priests wich rejected the sacred dogmas of the Machine God and began to look at the Necrons as the perfect embodiment of the machine

Hellpoint - that game is dope. It is literally soulslike, or more Bloodbornelike but set in deep space, on a dark abandoned space station.
View attachment 81488
The vibe here is hard. It is something between Hellraiser and Dead Space with religious accent. The deeper we will crawl into space station, the more spiritual opponents we will have to fight to. Quite literally, also it has great ambient ost and some... random events. Once a cycle, a black hole hour appears during which random enemies, stronger than ordinary ones, will appear on the map. Kind of mini bosses

What really impressed me in that game is the fact it takes into account that we can't walk in a space without a suit; we will run out of oxygen or freeze. Since we're not fully human, it'll take a while, but still...
View attachment 81490Yeah. Bosses are dope.
