Icepick Lodge is like Tale of Tales, making experimental, messy, and weird games that are memorable. Knock Knock is pretty traditional but The Void and Pathologic are really bonkers. And of course, Giantbomb's favourite, Cargo: Quest For Gravity.

Wondering how Her Story fits into this on funding, cause it's pretty different. A FMV text adventure, basically.

Was a big fan of their work. Loved Sunset and The Path, found Bientot lete interesting, still need to give Fatale a go. As big publishers have started funding smaller scale games (Ubi, EA, Starbreeze), hopefully public spending for less traditional games becomes more regular.

@slab64: I hope we get into some A Boy and his Dog territory with that. I'm sure everyone knows it by now, but it's the piece of fiction that started the whole mad max type of post apocalypse story, and in turn was a huge inspiration for the Fallout series.

A Boy and His Dog was pretty fucked up, right? I still need to read that or see that movie.

Yup. Very much a Harlan Ellison story. Haven't seen the movie or read the graphic novel, but the novella is good, if more than a bit fucked up.

As for Fallout 4, I'm probably just about alone in this, but I really wish we could get a new real fallout game instead of another post-apocalyptic elder scrolls. Fallout 3 was a pretty good game, but it was a pretty bad Fallout sequel.

Wasn't that basically Wasteland 2? I have it but haven't yet played it :P

The art did remind me of Psychonauts a lot too, too bad about the forced stealth.

Awesome pictures! It's great to meet new people and people you admire and find out that they're really cool.
