Xeno Clash (not sure if its obscure or not tbh)

Recommended Posts

"Xeno Clash" was one of those games i picked up on the Xbox 360 market place a while back and eventually found on Steam later. I very rarely hear anyone talk about it so I'm just gonna assume that its fairly obscure.

 

I remember it looking good for a source engine game, particularly since it used entirely original assets in conjunction with an art design that made it look like a Hieronymus Bosch painting. Weird doesn't quite cut it as a description; while the game has a pretty sweet combat system (at least from what i remember) it was weird to a point in which playing it would often give me headaches or a slightly nauseous feeling...so...yeah. Its sequel is pretty good too.

I saw the beginning of of another game they were working on, where there was just a giant rolling pin, stretching forever in both directions, slowly flattening the landscape and weird creatures. That was back in 2013 or so, so who knows if that's still a project. The bizarre world of Xeno Clash left an impression on me though. I'd say it's fairly obscure.

If I'm not misunderstanding you, then what you are actually talking about is Zeno Clash. And yes, it's really interesting. I especially enjoyed the second game with its beautiful and strange maps and their day-night-cycle. Wonderful game for just staring at things.
