‘Strange Horticulture’ Uses Strange Plants to Guide its Story

Strange Horticulture tasks you with finding the herbal solutions to peoples’ problems. What plants and flowers you use can change where this tale goes, though. You’re a talented horticulturist in the town of Undermere. Which isn’t a bad place to be if you’re interested in odd flowers, plants, and mushrooms. There’s lots of wild growth in the surrounding area. The kind of stuff that can give you wild powers and have all manner of effects when used just right. You just need to be very careful with the stuff and what you do with it. You also need to be careful while poking around the woods for it, too, as there is an eerie occult mystery to this realm. The kind of mystery where bad things happen to the people seeking answers.

‘dweeMIXED: Thwee Pack’ – Solve Icy Mysteries & Turn Friends Into Food

DweeMIXED: Thwee Pack brings a variety of surreal experiences, letting you live life as a shoe, unfreeze a city, or work with pals to make a delicious edible being. The package upgrades several past games from developer magicdweedo, master of the hilariously absurd. The first one is Ticket, a game where you play as a shoe that isn’t going to take it any more. I guess the world is in trouble, and the best way to solve its problems is to step on turtles. Which seems to mean that the world is collapsing in a very specific, strange way. I’m not sure if the turtles are involved in this global collapse, or if a turtle sacrifice is required. Anyway, you’re an upset shoe and you will be stepping on a bunch of stuff.

‘You Will (Not) Remain’ Hides From an Unsettling Doomsday

You Will (Not) Remain sees you hanging around an apartment complex with your strange, surreal dog as the world collapses into otherworldly ruin all around you. A vibrant horror fills the skies outside of your apartment complex. If you stay inside and keep anyone and anything from coming in, you should stay safe, though. But how safe do you feel when you can see that purple light creeping further and further throughout the city? When you look at the sprawling beast that grows near? When you can hear the walls of your own home whispering some strange things to you? It certainly doesn’t feel like anywhere is safe, but for now, your home will have to do. Lonely as it is.

Nintendo warns of fake websites selling discounted Switch consoles

Nintendo is warning online shoppers of fake websites selling discounted Switch consoles. In an update shared to Nintendo's Japanese website (thanks, Siliconera), Nintendo singles out one website in particular for reportedly using its iconic logo illegally and pretending to be official. The fake website has apparently been selling Nintendo products, like the best-selling Switch console, at "significantly discounted" prices. Nintendo doesn't link to the website or include any details about its URL or homepage other than the supposed infringements, instead sharing a link to the real Japanese Nintendo website.

‘Christmas Massacre’ Aims to Stealthily Slay All of the Naughty Folks

Christmas Massacre sees you going on a killing spree because your Christmas tree told you to. Just don’t get caught while you you’re doing it. I love that the Steam page for this game asks “But whose side is the tree really on?” As if a Christmas tree that tells you to kill people COULD be legit, but maybe something is off about this one. Anyway, your favorite holiday decoration wants you to go out and chop people’s necks off. Because they’re naughty. I guess you’re taking over for Krampus these days. At any rate, your character feels this is a perfectly legitimate request and sets off to start hacking folks to death. He’ll just need to be very careful about it, as the people in the game world don’t really appreciate your killer antics.

‘An Outcry’ – An Eerie Experience in Getting Locked Out

An Outcry sees you navigating a surreal night in your apartment complex after accidentally locking yourself out. At least there’s some talkative crows around. The Unnamed lives on the fourth floor of an apartment complex, simply trying to exist despite the challenges of poverty, anxiety, and most of all, their casually-hateful neighbors. When they get locked out one night, they’ll have to endure the nasty, cutting comments that seem to spill out of these folks’ mouths endlessly, all while they try to find a way to just get back into their place. Thankfully, the talking crows that hang out around this place seem pretty cool. I mean, they kill folks, but at least they don’t always say horrible things when they talk.
