The Abstract tag in the context of Steam games refers to a genre or style of games that prioritize unconventional and non-representational gameplay, visuals, or mechanics. These games often deviate from traditional game design conventions and focus on creating unique, artistic experiences.

In abstract games, the emphasis is usually placed on aesthetics, atmosphere, and thought-provoking concepts rather than direct storytelling or competitive gameplay. These games may explore philosophical ideas, evoke emotion through symbolism, or challenge players' perception and understanding.

A few key characteristics of abstract games include:

  • Minimalistic Visuals Abstract games often feature minimalist graphics with simple shapes, patterns, colors, or visual effects. The visuals may be stripped down to their essence to emphasize certain themes or ideas.
  • Puzzles and Challenges Many abstract games involve solving puzzles or navigating challenges that require critical thinking, logic reasoning, pattern recognition or creativity. The complexity can vary greatly from simple brain-teasers to intricate problem-solving tasks.
  • Open-ended Interpretation Abstract games typically leave room for interpretation and encourage players to form their own meanings and connections based on their experiences. The lack of explicit narrative allows for personal reflection and contemplation.

Here are some examples of popular abstract games:

  • Journey Developed by Thatgamecompany; it's an atmospheric adventure where players traverse a desert landscape encountering enigmatic symbols while reflecting upon themes like life's journey and companionship.
  • Braid Created by Jonathan Blow; this puzzle-platformer features time manipulation mechanics within a hand-painted world, prompting players to ponder philosophical ideas surrounding time and personal growth.
  • Everything Developed by David OReilly; this unique simulation game allows players to control and explore objects across various scales in a procedurally generated universe, encouraging contemplation of the interconnectedness of everything.

Abstract games offer a departure from traditional genres, allowing players to engage with experiences that challenge their perceptions, ignite their imagination, and provide thought-provoking journeys.
