The Psychedelic tag is used to describe games that evoke or explore the aesthetics, themes, and experiences associated with psychedelic art and culture. Psychedelia is a style that emerged in the 1960s and is often associated with psychedelic drugs, such as LSD, which were influential during that time.

Games labeled as psychedelic tend to feature vibrant and hallucinatory visuals, mind-bending animations, surreal environments, and unconventional storytelling. They aim to create an immersive experience where players are transported into a trippy world filled with abstract imagery, kaleidoscopic colors, optical illusions, and mind-altering effects.

In addition to their visual style, psychedelic games often incorporate abstract gameplay mechanics or non-linear narratives that reflect the altered states of consciousness associated with psychedelic experiences. These games can challenge conventional game design conventions by embracing randomness, unconventional controls or perspective shifts.

Examples of games tagged as "psychedelic" on Steam include:

  • Pry Pry utilizes an innovative interactive narrative structure where players manipulate text fragments by pinching gestures for iOS devices. It explores the fragmented memories of a military veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder through surreal visuals and hallucinatory sequences.
  • LSD: Dream Emulator A cult classic PlayStation game known for its dreamlike sequences inspired by real dreams recorded over ten years. The game features bizarre environments filled with abstract shapes while players navigate without any clear objectives.
  • Journey While not solely classified as psychedelic based on its tag alone but due to its visually mesmerizing landscapes infused with grandiose music; Journey takes players on an emotional adventure through ancient ruins amidst shifting sand dunes.

Psychedelic games are experimental and cater to players seeking unique and mind-expanding experiences beyond the boundaries of traditional gameplay. They often invite players to interpret and explore their surreal worlds from a different perspective.
