Bomb Dolls is a co-op game where players “eat burgers, pop pills, slam soda, inhale donuts,” while collecting lost souls and trading them for cute outfits. Sounds like a heckuva weekend to me. Thanks to the team at Girl Software for the screenshots!
What the Golf? is a golf game for people who hate golf, but love vending machines and chibi toasters. Thanks for the screenshot, Chris!

These nondescript vending machines welcome players to Leipzig — or Hypezig, as Wikipedia assures me it’s also known — in Train Sim World. Thanks for the screenshot, Jackalope!
