For those who don't know this genius:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wes_Anderson

His style is very, very distinctive. He's directed some of the quirkiest, most wide colorful scenery-based and most heavy plot point buildup cinema of all time. He's a master director.

Here's 3 games that I think are very much like his films:

- No Man's Sky. This is fits the most into the category of Anderson-esque (that's an understatement). The universe-building is incredible and very much as if he coined the idea for this game at Hello to begin with. Quirky as f alien and human NPCs abound, very long plot buildups in the form of FTL space travel to key planets, and mostly sci-fi neon color pattern of everything. Also my favorite game of all time.

- The Life Is Strange series. I never played it but the poetic and artsy semi-slice-of-real-life feel of it gives me Anderson vibes. Only thing missing is the quirkiness.

- OCTO-DAAAAAAAAAA-AAA-AAD, THEY'LL NEVER SUSPECT A THING. Yeah, Octo Dad's on this list, it could be stop motion like his work on Isle of Dogs...tho I could more so see it as a Taika Waititi film cuz it's even weirder.

Honorable Mentions:

- The Stanley Parable

- Mr Mosquito

- Mosaic.

What games do you think are like his movies?

When I think of him I think of pastel colours which makes me think of The Witness. Kind of a superficial connection.

It's kind of a weird match-up. Hmmm.... How about:

City of Lost Children (PS1)

Grim Fandango

Clive Barker's Undying

I don't think I've ever seen one of his movies so I'm not much help here.

@DEVILinIRON: GrimFandango is amazing. There is a similar game made in claymation which was also really popular.

Probably Untitled Goose Game?

I mean Wes Anderson movies are pretty unique (sometimes good, sometimes not so much). Not sure there is a game that can really have the visual or plot style of his movies.
