6 unique games to play this weekend

Intro: Whether you’re looking to try something new or want some ideas for your next gaming session, here are 8 unique games that you can play this weekend. There’s something for everyone, from cooperative multiplayer experiences to strategic adventure games. So get your controllers ready and dive in!

1. Life is Strange

This game is a choose-your-own-adventure style game, in which you play as Max Caulfield. When the girl she saved goes missing, Max discovers she has the power to rewind time and will have to keep changing the past to save her friend’s life. Throughout 5 episodes, you get to make unique decisions that will affect the game’s outcome, all while trying to keep your friend safe. Created by Dontnod Entertainment, Life is Strange is a fantastic adventure story with heart-wrenching twists. This game is one of the best single-player games on the market. It’s a story-driven game where your actions affect what happens and plays out as you go along. The way it adapts to your decisions is fantastic. There’s also a prequel called Before the Storm that you can download from the pirate bay mirror for quick and free access to this game. 

2. Raji: an ancient epic

This game on epic is genuinely unique; it is made by an Indian studio called nodding heads games. The game is about Raji, who has to fight her way up the Endless Stair to rescue her younger brother. You will die countless times on your journey, but you will be reincarnated as another creature every time you do, so you will never play the same game twice. It is the story of Raji, who must escape slavery and fight for her life by defeating demons. You’ll use various weapons to attack enemies, with your main “battles” taking place on a 2D plane. This game is presented as a beautiful Indian shadow-puppet spectacle, making it stand out. The only thing that holds it back is the occasional loading screen, but they don’t occur often enough to cause any problems.

3. Darq

Darq game

It is a horror game that plays like a psychological thriller. It is filled with disturbing imagery and an uneasy atmosphere, but it never feels overwhelming. The text-heavy storytelling isn’t brilliant, but the story itself is still interesting to see unfold. You will control two different avatars exploring worlds and solving puzzles together to bring them back into existence. The game has quite a bit of dialogue, but if you’re looking to give someone you know a scare or two, it’s worth checking out. The game is beautiful and complex, but not in the same way as something like Super Meat Boy. It’s gorgeous to look at, it has excellent music, and the gameplay feels good. But your progress is limited by only being able to make one move (attack or defense) per turn (unless you memorize patterns) while the game itself moves at a blistering pace. It isn’t easy at times, but you can always go back and try again until you beat it.

4. Cuphead: Delicious Last Course

If you’re looking for a game that’s more lighthearted than Cuphead, Delicious Last Course is what we recommend. It takes place in the same universe as your favorite meal-based puzzle games and has some of the most adorable art ever seen in a video game. Cuphead is a classic-style run and gun game, where you control Cuphead or Mugman (in single player) as you shoot and dodge oncoming enemies. But the main change in this game from others like it is that EVERYTHING moves in an old animated way (think Steamboat Willie), but with modern touches. It looks great with the game’s 1930s art style, but it cannot be easy to follow with your eyes. Its design is inspired by cartoons of the era and makes for a unique experience. You might be tempted to check it out if you enjoyed games like Contra or Metal Slug back in the day.

5. Hades: Death Saves 

Hades is a narrative dungeon crawler in which you play through the underworld of Greek mythology. The game takes place over 6 days, each day leading to one of Hades’ 6 realms (and eventually back up again). There are multiple paths for you to take, but only one goal: get out alive. You will need to make tough choices throughout the game, and you won’t save everyone. Hades: Death Saves is a down-to-the-wire adventure that will test your mettle and Greek mythology knowledge in exciting ways.

6. Age of empires: Castle siege

Age of empires: Castle siege

This game is a free-to-play game on Windows 10, so it’s pretty easy to get your hands on. If you’ve ever played Age of Empires or any games like this before (or even if not), the basic gist of the game is that you click where you want to go and try to beat up other civilizations (other people online who are playing at the same time as you). AOE: Castle Siege is a real-time strategy game where you are tasked with building up your castle, training an army, and fending off attackers as you destroy the enemy stronghold and conquer their village. Look no further if you’re looking for a new RTS to try out.

Conclusion:  The 8 games we discussed today are slightly different from the ones you usually play. Ready to dive in? These games are sure to keep you entertained for hours on end. So put on your game face, and get ready for some fun this weekend!
