Here are my two cents on what grabbed my eye lately in the indie scene:


1. Children Of Morta - pixelart topdown hack’n'slash with a fairy tale fantasy vibe into it. some gorgeous animations. Release in 2018.


2. Death’s Gambit - Shadow of the Colossus meets Dark Souls in metroidvania 2d platformer action rpg. Some epic boss fights. Release in 2018.

 


3. Eitr - Dark Souls meets Diablo 1 (or at least the aesthetics of it). Release date is 2016. Er… no.

 


4. Manifold Garden - Portal meets Inception. 1st person puzzle game set in a minimal and endless world of geometrical fractals. There’s no up or down. Just an infinite versions of the world around you. Release in 2018

 


5. The Almost Gone - Point’n'click mystery puzzler with an eerie soundtrack and Monument Valley aesthetics.

I really want to try Into the Breach.

I loved FTL and this seems like more strategy goodness from its creators


It got 9.0 on ign.

Chasm is coming to PS4 this summer. I saw that game a few years back at E3, and it looked impressive, so glad it’s finally coming out.

A bit late but The Good Life by Sweary65 got funded on kickstarter after a rocky start!
A demo and a tease of Switch version got the job done. I backed it for the physical version. Now to wait long years…

The indie games seem to be getting so much better these days, just look at Cup Head. Last year we saw the reveal of The Last Night at E3. That game looks so beautiful, I can’t wait to play it.

Here is the trailer:

These look interesting! If you like the concept of Manifold Garden, I suggest reading the short story The Library of Babel by Jorge Luis Borges.

Thanks for the recommendation. I’ve been planning to read Borges for quite some time.

Defending Camelot is just up on Steam (30% off 1st week), if you like Plants vs Zombies you’re gonna love this game, it’s a fantasy version of PvZ Grin

Apologies if either of these have been posted in here. Just found out about both and they seem very cool

Amanita Design new game is a 2D platformer Creaks. I’m really looking forward to see how will they adapt to the new genre, the art is gorgeus as usual.

     

Recently played: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons 5/5, Bioshock 2 4/5, Tomb Raider (2013) 3/5 Looking forward to: Gibbous, Saint Kotar

Although I think Amanita needs a change in direction, that just looks creepy and uninspiring. If that’s where they are headed I’d rather just get the endless remakes of the same game that they’ve been doing.
