Post your most interesting discoveries in gaming.
It can be random shit off of itch.io or glorioustrainwrecks.com
It can be some extremely rare Japanese ps1 game
As long as not many people know about it

probably the most obscure games on the english speaking internet are VIPRPGs (with the exception of the horror ones people sometimes fan translate because they're gay for yume nikki)

Great article. I agree with the bit about subcultures and such, stuff that is not made for mainstream appeal but for a small niche is always more interesting. I know of VIPPERS (maninly because of SAoVQ) so its cool to hear about other stuff they did.

Go ahead and check out roguelikes. You might know the popular ones like Dwarffortress or NetHack but there are many many others that have been developed and just faded into obscurity.

RogueBasin is a good place to start but they can be pretty exclusive and byzantine when it comes to defining what a "roguelike" are.

lord gaben, by whose grace any game with a steam page instantly becomes mainstream trash

Don't know if I would call this obscure but I certainly don't hear about it often.

Not that obscure but I want to give a shoutout to ADIDAS POWER SOCCER INTERNATIONAL '97. Lots of fun arcadey skill moves, you can deliberately handball Maradona-style and sometimes get away with it, karate kicks as tackles... if you hit a PREDATOR SHOT, the goalie gets knocked over and a little boot with PREDATOR SHOT comes up. At halftime, you were shown little FMV adverts for Predator boots and Fingersave gloves. It also had an aftertouch system so you press L1/R1 after you shoot to curve the ball, it was really satisfying curling shots in from 30 yards. It also had delightfully crap commentary.

Like a few other PS1 games I have, there are odd sound glitches when played on a PS3, which I quite like!

most obscure thing I've played would be the first legacy of flan
it's pretty much unplayable
also not too obscure since Scott Cawthon made it but the number of people who have heard of it or played it are still really low for sure

This is a pretty good slavjank FPS.
