When you name your game "One Epic Game", you have one of two options: either fill your game with high-powered hardware, gnarly baddies, and over-the-top villains, or not take it seriously and call it ironic. Game developer Grip Games chose to do both. One Epic Game is a side-scroller set in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies that's aware of just how trite that premise is.

OEG has a very self-aware sense of humor that feels like it shouldn't be as funny as it is. The game literally begins with our hero asking a zombie why so many games have zombies in them. The fourth wall breaks get a little, shall we say, ample in a short time, but it gives our hero a very Deadpool-esque feel. Also like Deadpool, we get to use a bunch of cool guns to kill things, so all is forgiven.

The side scroller genre feels a bit dated, but this game does a good job of being a fun throwback to the classic days of gaming while still being fresh, entertaining and, dare I say it, witty. Grab One Epic Game from the widget below and get ready to save the world from the end of itself... for the thousandth time.
