Despite their various oddities, these games deserve your time and money.
You’ll hear a lot about the best games of 2017 from the wonderfully weird to the brutally entrancing. However, 2017 has also been filled with games that stood out for their quirkiness but didn’t quite catch on among large numbers of players. Still, in terms of hidden gems with memorable stories and off-beat premises, you could do a lot worse than the 15 games gathered here.
The number of adventure games that hinge on having outlandish premises is too high and it feels like Paradigm is in the same vein. The story revolves around a mutant named Paradigm cast out by his creators, only to develop a love for electronic music. It isn’t long before a candy spewing sloth comes calling and Paradigm must save the world. For all its quirks and retro-futuristic tendencies, it’s actually an extremely solid adventure packed with hilarious writing.
