Who doesn’t love something a little bit oddball and out-there from time to time? When it comes to video games, there are plenty of bizarre ones out there, and we can’t get enough of them. That’s why we’ve rounded up the weirdest games on PS Plus Extra, all available to play with your PS Plus Extra or Premium membership at no extra charge.

And by weird, we don’t mean bad: we adore these games and applaud them for daring to be something different. We’ve got games with bugs-crossed-with-burgers, a murderous goose, and one where you play as a piece of bread. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Read on to find the best weird and wonderful games out there, all available on PS Plus Extra.

1. Bugsnax

Of course Bugsnax is one of the weirdest games on PS Plus Extra. It’s a game about catching insects… that are also snacks. No, we’re not talking Bear Grylls-eating-bugs-in-the-jungle type snacks. We’re talking spiders with fries for legs, bugs that are also burgers and cinnamon roll snails. It’s utterly delightful, but completely bizarre. And that’s why we love it.

In our Bugsnax review, we said you’ve probably never played anything as “infectiously adorable” as this. And four years since its release, we really don’t think anything else has come close. An adventure game where you collect bugs, complete missions and meet a bunch of colourful characters, it’s a joy from start to finish.

2. Dreams

Now, Dreams itself isn’t that weird of a game. Well, it isn’t really a game at all: it’s a tool that lets you create your own games. No, what’s weird about Dreams is the other games you can play within it. You see, you can share your creations with other players — and in turn play the stuff other people have made.

There are some seriously weird home-made games out there. While we’ve been ‘Dream Surfing’, as it’s call, we’ve encountered such wonders as “Thomas the Dank Engine” and a so-called game that was nothing but a full English breakfast (an incredible looking one, however). We know we’ve only scratched the surface of what Dreams has to offer, and that’s probably the best thing about it — you never know what weird and wonderful games you’re going to stumble across.

3. I Am Bread

Can you think of anything weirder than playing a game where you’re a sentient piece of bread? No, we can’t either. But that’s exactly what you are in I Am Bread, an adventure where you set out to become a piece of toast. The ultimate bread dream, apparently.

The story mode will see you gain skills as you make your way from the kitchen to the outside world, but that’s not all I Am Bread has to offer. There’s the Goat Simulator-inspired RAMpage mode, a bagel race and the Zero-G mode, which sends your piece of bread into space. Hours of doughy fun.

4. Nour: Play With Your Food

Nour: Play With Your Food is seriously weird. We are not exaggerating when we say you won’t have played anything like this. It literally is a game that invites you to play with food. There are no real goals or any type of story here. Simply… get messy with food.

“Messy and mystifying” is what we called Nour when we wrote about it last year. One level might have you raining pizza toppings from the sky. Another sees you toss breakfast toppings around an American diner. Is it art? Is it chaos? A bit of both, we assume. You can throw things around, or you can whip out your tools — like a knife and a blowtorch — to really unleash chaos onto your dining delights.

5. Untitled Goose Game

An adventure game where you play as… a goose? Yeah, that’s what Untitled Goose Game is, one of our favourite games that also happens to be utterly weird. As the goose, you’ll spend your time generally causing chaos: stealing things, pranking people and generally being a goosey nuisance. It’s brilliant.

There are missions to complete and quests to do, but your main order of the day is just to be… a pain in the backside, frankly. With a dedicated honk button, you can run around simply honking at the villagers if you like. After all, why be an obedient goose when you can be a devilish one?
