About

The Freak Museum is a place for lovers of very unusual videogames.

Once a week, I stream a game--or collection of games--that you probably haven't heard of, and are unlikely to forget once you've seen it. The Freak Museum caters to the weirder and wilder side of the technical arts, focusing on works made by small, often individual developers making their art in their spare time. Some are able to make a living as full-time artists, while many others are working regular jobs while also happening to make some of the most interesting and experimental art this medium has to offer. Once a week, I curate some of the most impressive examples of these games, presenting whole or partial playthroughs with my own commentary and critical analysis.

Because I want as many people as possible to find out about these games, 3 of the 4 monthly streams will be publicly available. However, the fourth will always be a free, private stream where I will play something a little more in-depth for patrons. This usually refers to bigger and slightly better-known projects, such as Night in the Woods or Kentucky Route Zero. These streams are hosted on youtube, while the public streams are available on both youtube and twitch. 

I also write reviews on my website Sufficiently Human, (Currently on hiatus. Patrons will be informed of updates as they are completed)

Higher tier patrons can receive perks including original art as per your (reasonable) request. Here is a drawing of Mark Zuckerberg: 


Who the hell am I? I'm Lana. Think of me as a sort of Elvira for Very Odd Videogames. A big titty goth e-girl. But I'm also a professional. I've been focusing on independent and esoteric technical art for nearly a decade. I'm an art critic, artist, designer and writer. I have written for games and art magazines alike, including Rhizome, Kill Screen, Paste, Kaleidoscope, Arcade Review, Vice and Billboard. You can also check out some of my own little games here: https://lanathegun.itch.io/

I have made a couple of appearances on the podcast No Cartridge hosted by Trevor Strunk (https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/no-cartridge-audio/e/62317350 and https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/no-cartridge-audio/e/63781295).

I was also a guest on Delete Your Account hosted by Roqayah Chamseddine and Kumars Salehi (https://deleteyouraccount.libsyn.com/episode-160-gaming-the-system).
