For all their inventiveness and innovation, some indie games can also be, well, a little much. A fact serving as the inspiration for Something Awful's list of 2010's "Most Promising Bullshit Indie Games".


Some of the shame-they're-not-real-games we have to look forward to include tranScEEnD:

You are a seed, the manifestation of potential. The wind is your means of transportation - and the deliverer of your fate.

Embark on a relaxing journey through a visionary world unlike anything you've ever seen before.

tranScEEnD features a one-of-a-kind gameplay experience that blends time manipulation with gravity. In the end it turns out you weren't really a seed at all, but an alien ship and the whole thing was a metaphor for sexual abuse.

Little much? You may prefer the more down-to-earth inspiration behind Cosmope:

I woke up. The dawn had scrubbed her scent away. All these mistakes, all these regrets were as nothing and somehow... I knew they were everything.

When lives take different directions, it is as a starling bursting forth from infinite realities. Each different. Only one way back to her.


Best part? Were this not a list put together by Something Awful, you'd be forgiven for thinking these were actual, real, upcoming games.
