Contest is for subscribers, so go sub!

My new Season is live! Ten episodes, all "odd" games in one way or another. I may change up the definition of "odd" on a game to game basis, but it should be fun!

I built a puzzle into my new season. First ten correct entries get entered to win a modded PS Classic. On the tenth video I will leave a submission email for you to send your answers to! Secret Obscure Gamers hint ; you better have a good sense of direction!

Here is the "key" to solving the puzzle



Feedback welcome :)

Kowloon was a real place. There are several documentaries about it, and it was a maze-city. Shenmue II also have a battle scene on top of Kowloon City, as far as I remember.

It’s crazy to know it existed. Obviously not filled with mutants like the game, but still...how did that exist in real life?

Here's an article with photos: CLICK
Kowloon is a region, Kowloon City a city/area in that region and Kowloon Walled City a dense group of buildings in that city:D

I have yet to play the game so I won't be watching the video, although being in Japanese it's not like I will understand much anyway. not even sure i can manage to go very far.

Any game when you can play as a Pomeranian and fight a zebra is cool in my
Book!

My favorite game of the bunch this "season". Septentrion is such a weird and strange game. Part Titanic simulator, part walking simulator, all frustrating yet totally fun :)

I used to love playing this on my Saturn. Such a nice game at the time.

It still holds up to me. I wish someone had the source renders / videos for a high def remaster. I'd buy that

Could you clarify something for me. At the start of the video... did you pay $15 for..... a cardboard box?! I do not understand.

Anyway, absolutely love the series. Started watching all the episodes. Great work! Thank you for making these
