Mine are probably :

- Leviathan - The Tone Rebellion. Still haven't played it (shame on me).

- Twipsy - the official game of the world Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany. Hven't played it, too. Twipsy was the official mascot. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twipsy

- Humans III : Evolution - Lost In Time for PC (this is said to be quite bad, but I have started it only once, so I don't know. On the positiv side, the game's CD has audio tracks, yay !) Gamespot doesn't like it at all : http://www.gamespot.com/pc/puzzle/hu…ime/index.html
Interestingly, recently there has been a reboot of the "Humans" franchise : http://www.gamespot.com/pc/puzzle/thehumans/index.html

- "Captain Gysi und das Raumschiff Bonn"
- "Captain Gysi 2 : Galaxis Futura"

Both are games of a genre that doesn't exist : Political satire games. Really, no joking ! The game takes place within a starship, the so-called "Galaxis Futura". The "Captain Gysi" (Gysi is is real-life name !) was the major head of a left-wing German party, the PDS, which was some kind of successor of the GDR's only party, the SED. Later, this party has fused with another one to become a new party called "Die Links" ("The Left One"), which is in trouble right now mainly because of its inept heads.

In these games, major politicians of the time around the turn of the millennium are ridiculed, and "Captain Gysi" is the only one who can resolve all of this chaos the other politicians have made.

Other obscure games I have are "advertisement games", often adventure games (but not always), which are … well, kind of advertisements. Some are done in a reall good way : The first Kellogg's game was a jump & run game, and it had won a few prices, then, bcause it was reall excellent, from a technical point of view.
You can donload it here (it is reall one of the best jumop & run games I've ever played !) : http://werbespiel.blogspot.com/2010/…oggs-land.html - but the game is in German language, though.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
