All it takes is one look at this game's title to know that it's probably pretty silly, and it definitely doesn't disappoint on that front. Developed by 616 Games, Poop Killer 4 is the latest addition to the franchise inspired by the many trashy horror movies of the 1980s. The game follows the story of Billy, a local sex shop owner. The game starts with the mundane day-to-day tasks of interacting with customers and selling them various suggestive items. But when one of those customers clogs the store's toilet, all hell breaks loose. Suddenly, Billy has to deal with the dreaded Poop Killer, a serial killer with a flaming toilet for a head. This indie horror game is ridiculous, nostalgic, and packed to the brim with lowbrow humor, and it's most definitely good for a handful of chuckles throughout its short runtime.
Platforms: PC (Windows, macOS, and Linux)
If you're a fan of lighthearted blood and gore and the Netflix series Squid Game, Crab Game is perfect for you. Developed and published by Dani, Crab Game is a multiplayer game where you face off with other players in various minigames. The mini games take inspiration from classic children's playground games, but there's a twist: These games are fights to the death. Each round of minigames can start with up to 35 players, but only one player will be left standing, and that player will receive a virtual cash prize. The graphics are simple, the violence is irreverent, and the activities are fun and prone to getting very competitive in the funniest ways possible. Crab Game will most certainly put a grin on your face while you play rounds of Hide and Seek or The Floor Is Lava to the death.
