Osada is a web game (for a definition of the word "game" anyway, it's mostly just visuals and video, there's not much of an interactive element beyond clicking) that takes place in a surreal, Dada-esque version of the US-Mexico border. Notable features include stunningly bizarre visuals, and an excellent soundtrack. It is produced by a team of Czechs. It can be found here.

Tropes that apply to Osada

  • Animated Tattoo: All three men in the bar scene.
  • Book Ends: You end up back exactly where you started.
  • Circling Vultures: Three of them fly out of the hat of one of the men after the ping-pong scene.
  • Dada: Most of the game.
  • Jump Scare: The television scene seems to set up for this. It doesn't.
  • Showdown at High Noon: Subverted; the television scene starts with a shot of a man's hand hovering over his holster...and then it goes into a ping-pong match.
  • Traintop Battle: A brief one breaks out (and quickly ends) to start off the train sequence.
