Name variations: hudless

The first video game about No HUD was released in 1991.

Playdead, Polytron and Interplay has published most of these games

Obviously this should not be used with games you wouldn't expect a HUD in anyway (whatever games those are).

These may still have separate stats and inventory screens and/or dialog UIs that resemble HUD.

Any pop-up windows or tooltip like elements count as HUD elements but less so than static display of health and status of some worn items.
