Avant-Garden: Cool Unique Games

a collection by Sir TapTap · last updated 2018-06-28 18:25:06

What's This?

A collection of cool, off-beat, unique, or otherwise exemplary games. Formerly "Cool Weird Games", but lots of people think of "weird" as a negative (but IMO, more games should strive to be weird).

Not necessarily "alt games" but just cool, unique stuff you never thought you'd see. Many are free, all are worth your time.

Some are more experimental than others, I'll try and note whenever a game should be treated as such (very short, no ending, no goal, etc).

Who're you?

I'm Sir TapTap, and my mission is to spread a love of games, particularly the hidden gems and underrated magic. 

I've played through almost all of these games on my YouTube channel to give a visual quick look into new experiences. You can check out a playlist of Alt/Art games there.
