Every game has a place in the various categories of genre, some developers mix and match a few for the perfect game but it works and many games have their own unique genre as a result.
However, with RPG Maker, some devs and amateur game developers are pushing the boundaries of what makes a game unique. Today I’m shedding light on some of the weirdest RPG Maker games that deserve some attention.
1. Pom Gets WiFi
This game is an indie comedy RPG about a pomeranian called Pom (obviously) who needs Wi-Fi desperately to live. It was made in RPG Maker 2003 and released in late 2013.
The best way to describe this game is “tumblr in a form of a game.” It’s educational because it teaches you the internet language with typos and emoticons (not emojis). The art style is pretty simple, but well-made for an RPG Maker game and it’s quite easy to beat in one hour. It’s a fun game to pass time with.
2. Ao Oni
Ao Oni is a Japanese horror/puzzle game made in the RPG XP engine. The story follows a group of friends who are investigating an abandoned mansion that’s rumored to be haunted.
The game needs to add comedy and a question mark next to it on the description, because I personally found the main villain quite hilarious. That made it more entertaining than getting stressed from jump scares.
3. Space Funeral
This game was released back in 2010 and it was created on RPG Maker 2003.
Phillip and the Leg Horse set off on a strange and deadly mission to find the legendary City Of Forms from which all things in the world are derived. On their travels they must overcome ghosts, criminals, hypnosis, lions, Draculas, cryptic letters, muscle hedonists, swamp knights, mysterious caves, blood ghouls, grotesque monsters, purple drank and more in order to discover the secret of Space Funeral.
Too much to take in?
If you thought No Man’s Sky was brightly colored, you might change your mind after trying this game. I mean, what could possibly go wrong when you have to deal with that many enemies?
Have you tried any of these games? What are your thoughts about them?
