New release: OFF

A reader writes in to inform me of the existence of OFF, a surreal-looking French jRPG. Created by developers Mortis Ghost and Alias Conrad Coldwood way back in 2008, OFF has been localized into English by the Reconstructed Game Team. The localizers have this to say about it:

Originally in French with only few English resources, a part of the Reconstructed Game Team (including myself) have spent their summer break translating this gem to English to make it available to a wider public.
In “OFF” you take control of a mysterious person called “The Batter”, who is described to be on an important mission. The Batter, and yourself as his controller, are dropped off in zone 0, the first of 4 zones in a perplexing, unknown world about which you slowly find out more and more in the process of the game.

“OFF” has been praised and known as an insider’s tip between French gamers for its strong story, great characters and incredible atmosphere.

Looking at the screenshots, OFF reminds me of nothing so much as Space Funeral. You can download the game for free right here.
