THE AB­SO­LUTE WURST

EDGE - - PLAY -

The at­mos­phere here is strange. It’s on one hand breezily ab­sur­dist, with a main menu pre­sented as if printed on shrink-wrapped sausages. It’s over­laid by a soul­ful pi­ano theme tune, and yet the words “de-lic-ious sau-sa-ges” light up in time to it. The game’s ab­stract gen­er­a­tive mu­sic can sound night­mar­ish, and its en­vi­ron­ments rep­re­sent na­ture with cold pix­els, but the pause menu text is al­most Comic Sans. It’s an in­trigu­ing mix­ture that feels per­sonal to its creator.
