The spiritual descendant of Yume Nikki and Earthbound/Mother, to put it best, OFF is an independent French RPG available for free on computer (it was made in damned 2007 and it's taken a while to get an English translation, I think it finally happened in like 2011 or so but I'm late to the party). It is weird as hell, but has one of the strongest atmospheres the genre has ever seen. And by far the most… unique soundtrack. I can't talk much about the gameplay, if you've played a JRPG you know how it works. But the aesthetic and universe brings it high up hard.
In “OFF” you take control of a mysterious person called “The Batter”, who is described to be on an important mission. The Batter, and yourself as his controller, are dropped off in zone 0, the first of 4 zones in a perplexing, unknown world about which you slowly find out more and more in the process of the game.
AND OH MY GOD THE BATTLE THEME IS JUST
I CAN'T EVEN
