What's the most obscure game you can think of?

For some reason I always remember "The Machines" on MS DOS


Mostly because of how underwhelmed I was by it. It opened with this cool cinematic with a cool 3D robot. Then you start the game and get to play with this lame robot on the second image.
Never really got far as it was all in English and I had no idea what to do.

Loved it as a kid.


I think I loved all those very confusing games where the objective was never clear.

MetalHeart: Replicants Rampage, a 2005 shitty, buggy copy of classic isometric Fallouts made by Russian dev Akella.

Also, Mayday: Conflict Earth, an equally shitty forgotten RTS release for PC in 2000.

Afrika on PS3 is up there. Just a photo safari game where you take pictures of animals with licensed Sony cameras. One of my favorite games of all time. The animations of the animals are the best I've ever seen in a game. The cheapest copy on Ebay is currently going for $140.00. There is a sealed copy going for $380.00 right now. Insanity.
Natsume released this and at the same time a separate African safari game for the Wii called Animal Kingdom Wildlife Expedition. I only had a Wii at the time, but I figured they would be similar games due to the release times and having the same publisher.

...man was I wrong.

I got this game used from a second hand shop, it was the collector's edition with the soundtrack, a poster of the world maps and a lunar pendent (which was missing).

I don't remember the story but I remember this game being hard as balls. I think I'm going to try to replay this.

This is one that most of you will be too young to remember, but to those that do I salute you:

Elfmania:


I loved that! It was certainly one of the better Amiga fighters that came out :)

Like this banger..



My pick of the thread would have to be..



Been on the Forum for years and I dont think I've ever seen it brought up apart from me, years after making my account :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Cracking game that was, utterly hooked me that multiplayer did, and the campaign.

One of my most wanted GOG games.

Hahaha no way! I gotta look that up now. I was always so jealous that Wii users got that game Endless Ocean. It looked so sick! I really wish Natsume would make a sequel to AfriKa on the PS5 because that game on PS3 was just outstanding as far as I'm concerned. I mean it took me about 8 or 9 years to beat it playing it off and on and I actually got the Platinum.
 
Can't tell ya'll how many times I rented this shit from blockbuster as a kid. The pizza eating minigame at the end of each level was god-tier.

Is it that horror game in school you play with students? (4 i think) That was a really cool game, and graphically looked super impressive on PS2. I had no expectation but that was a cool surprise.

As for topic, i think it was SH1, the game literally depressed but its tone, everything was dark and weird and you had no idea why.

I Of The Mask - ZX Spectrum - Still to this day have no idea what you are actually supposed to do to progress in any way, after owning the game for 30 years :messenger_grinning_sweat:
