4. Mister Mosquito
This 2002 game is centred on the one thing mosquitoes do, sucking blood. It is a single-player video game where the player controls the main character, Mister Mosquito, who is an unwelcome guest of the Yamada family.
As the mosquito, the player's job is to suck enough blood to survive for the winter. The mosquito will be sucking the blood out of the Yamadas, which includes Rena Yamada (the daughter) alongside her mother, Kaneyo Yamada, and her father, Kenichi Yamada.
If the player is not careful, the family members might wake up and kill Mister Mosquito.
Seaman was released on 29th July 1999. It is, without question, one of the weirdest games ever made.
The player is tasked with raising a seaman (a speaking tadpole-human hybrid) from its zygotic state till it becomes a fully grown creature with a human face.
The player needs to provide the seaman with the care, company and attention it needs. Otherwise, it would die.
The seaman is an odd-looking creature. It is a form of freshwater fish with a human face and human-like mannerisms.
6. Sneak King
Sneak King is one of the strange games of 2006. It was released in 2006 by Burger King as part of a holiday season promotion. It involves a player controlling the Burger King mascot, who is also the lead character, The King.
The mascot is tasked with sneaking up on everyday people and presenting them with Burger King food when they least expect it.
The success of a delivery involves the player sneaking up behind a non-player character.
7. Japan World Cup
No, Japan World Cup is not about football. In fact, it is a racing simulation video game. It was developed and published by Cinema Keib.
The player is requested to place bets on their selected racehorse before the race begins. There is minimal gameplay involved; all the player can do is sit and watch to see if their horse manages to win.
It is a strange game that appears to be about horse racing in Japan, but once it starts, the player is thrown into a world of confusion. Some horses have weird hairstyles or strange bodies, and some of them aren't even horses at all.
Japan World Cup is loaded with seemingly silly antics, strange things for jockeys to ride — whether it's an elephant, yeti, trojan horse, or a barrel with human legs sticking out posing as a horse.
Weird flash games
Flash games are played online, and they require the flash player; you do not need to spend any additional effort on installation and configuration. What is needed is a plug-in in the browser that supports this technology.
You do not need hi-tech devices before you can run flash applications; even an old computer can run a flash game.
Although flash games are no longer going to exist after the year 2020, these weird browser games are still worth a try:
8. Abyssal Dream
Abyssal Dream was made in 72 hours. Its storyline involves a man who sees a strange light and decides to explore the peculiar world even though his wife begs him not to.
Players can explore a strange world while mastering their shapeshifting capabilities. They also get to unlock a multitude of shapes and discover their strengths and weaknesses.
