Probably one of the weirdest and most whimsical games that we’be come across in 2016 is sandwich puissant‘s Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016. With a title like that I don’t think we need to explain very much about what the game’s about but clearly GVC 2016 is a giraffe-based sports game, right?
Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016 pits you (a giraffe) against another giraffe, and you’re playing volleyball, using your long, retractable necks to volley that ball over the net into your opponent’s territory, and hopefully your oppenent will miss the ball and let it hit the ground. Score 5 points first, and you’ll win the match. It seems simple, but it’s not because it’s actually pretty hard. In fact, it’s not just your neck that’s retractable but your legs as well making playing and watching Giraffes Volleyball Championship 2016 a completely ridiculous experience and because this is a spectacle of flailing limbs and necks, you should play it. Hey, that’s what sold me.
Fun fact: sandwich puissant is French for “powerful sandwich”. Don’t you feel richer just knowing that?
