Sluggish Morss - http://gamejolt.com/games/other/sluggish-morss/12218/
Slugghist Morss: A Delicate Time in History - http://gamejolt.com/games/other/sluggish-morss-a-delicate-time-in-history/12298/

Two really weird games I haven't seen posted here before. Much like games such as Off, Space Funeral, and Middens they are DEFINITELY not for everyone.. or even most people probably. If you do like that type of game these are probably worth a play though.

Wow! I managed to spell the name right a whole 1 out of 3 times! Making words is hard.

Anyways, I forgot to mention. Both games were made by different people and released at nearly the same time. I'm not entirely sure if there's an actual order to play them in or if it matters.

The first one was made in a collab with the author of the second. But there is a vague story between the two (or three with Ad infinitum now released but it ain't free, so):

In the first game, the protagonist died due to a money issue with their brother, and the whole game seems to be a final voyage to the afterlife.
The second game is about Widok Daydat, who is pretty much a premonitor and as the game does further, she sees images of the close future, getting closer and closer. Then there is the id invasion and the fact that the universe is dying because of entropy.
The third one, as I've seen, details the end of existence in that universe.

Also soundtrack:

They really are amazing games, at least, they are to the kind of people who like them. It sounds silly but I genuinely believe that playing the Sluggish Morss games has changed me in some way and made me think more about the universe and space and time. The soundtrack is incredible as well. I wish I knew more people who played and liked them but its the kind of thing people have to discover on their own.

Jake Clover, who made the first game with additions from Jack King-Spooner, makes a lot of odd, small, badly made games that usually have something to do with space in some way. I do like his games a lot because they get me thinking about possible alien culture. For example, we humans consider sitting down and watching TV a pretty normal way to pass time but what do beings from other planets or universes consider to be normal? What do alien beings do and why do they do it? Its amazing to me, to imagine that if there are other beings, they have a history as rich and diverse as our own, with countless small events throughout their history shaping their culture into something probably very different to our own.

Jack King-Spooner doesn't have as many games as Jake Clover, but they usually seem to have more time invested into them and are mostly made in RPG Maker. He also uses a lot of distortion and cut-out drawings as models. His games seem to center around humanity's struggle to deal with a large and scary universe, in some form or another. Jack King-Spooner also makes great music for his games. I recommend that you play them, wherever and whoever you are.

These kinds of games are really powerful to me. They deal with themes that most other forms of media don't and in ways that make me feel something bigger than my own life. Sorry for the ramble. I really enjoy these kinds of games and I've never found any place to talk about them. Its strange and interesting to me to imagine that although this is a minuscule thread on a tiny board and although this thread and this reply may never be seen again, someone might be looking into these games with the same passion I have for them and the concepts they involve.

Anyway, I'll end this novel now. Great games.

dude you hit the nail on the head. i loved those games to death! they really are something special and amazing, and i feel jack king spooner is incredible underrated. i adore will you ever return and it's sequel.

I agree, jack is so underrated it hurts but i feel like that adds to the charm of his games. each time i play them i feel like im being let in on a little secret that few other people know. will you ever return and its sequels were really good. I really enjoyed mammoth as well.

I've been feeling pretty nostalgic for these weird indie games lately. The last one I got into was Hylics, but I don't think anything's similar has come out lately. I figure the rpgmaker scene's dead.

Jake Clover is pretty good, his stuff is a lot more basic but they have a lot of charm and delightful weirdness to them

Jake Clover is really nice, he used some music of mine in one of his games, Gradient Addiction
