She's baaaaack! Or perhaps she never really went away. Two decades after the groundbreaking The Blair Witch Project popularized the "found footage" horror movie, the eponymous legend is still going strong, this time in the form of Bloober Team's upcoming Blair Witch.
The solar system is a big, big place, and most of its many mysteries are far beyond our understanding. Good thing for inquiring minds that it's also caught in an endless time loop in Mobius Digital's newly-released Outer Wilds.
Between interactive TV shows like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and games like The Complex, it's getting harder and harder to tell the two apart. Especially when Wales Interactive's upcoming "cinematic FMV sci-fi thriller" is set to include experienced film talent both in front of and behind the camera.
Lovecraft and cyberpunk may not be the first match that comes to mind in a word association test, but perhaps that will change next year when indie Turkish developer Stormling Studios releases their horror adventure Transient.
Two of the more memorable characters in D'Avekki Studios' The Shapeshifting Detective were the late night radio hosts heard regularly over the airwaves (and later visited when they become instrumental to the story).

What's better than a new game from the creators of Unforeseen Incidents? How about TWO new games from Backwoods Entertainment? Better yet, both of them have recently received funding for various stages of development.

Carl Jung posited the theory of individuation, in which the subconscious is instrumental in developing our conscious personalities. But what if our inner psyches are tormented by repressed horrors?

Pulse Entertainment's Bad Mojo showed us in 1996 that being an insect can be a lot fun (in a game, that is). Now indie Polish developer Ovid Works is revisiting the concept in their upcoming Kafka-esque environmental puzzler Metamorphosis.
Guns don't kill people... they merely absorb energy and transform it to your benefit. At least, that's what the photon gun in Three Dots' upcoming Portal-style sci-fi adventure INTERPOINT does.
It's been a long time coming, but at long last fans of Revolution's classic dystopian cyberpunk adventure Beneath a Steel Sky can look forward to a sequel, as the acclaimed UK studio today unveiled the first details of Beyond a Steel Sky, due out later this year.
Childhood reminiscence is a wonderful thing, but how we view the events of our early years is different when we grow up than it was back in our youthful, carefree days. Indie developer Brian Wilson of Wakefield Interactive aims to explore those different perspectives in Where the Bees Make Honey, a "puzzle-adventure about reflection and nostalgia" that is due to launch shortly on PC.
Cyberpunk seems to be making a welcome resurgence in gaming these days. The latest title to delve into a dystopian future of high tech and lowly station is indie developer Insert Disk 22 – at least, they will if they're able to secure the necessary crowdfunding for Born Punk on Kickstarter.
It's a good thing planets revolve in an orbit, because we completely missed Planet RIX-13 on its first pass when it launched in 2017 on PC. Now, however, the short retro-styled sci-fi adventure has come around again, this time on all three major consoles and PlayStation Vita.
Each new announcement shines a little light on an upcoming adventure, but rarely quite so literally as in the case of indie developer Gossamer Games' upcoming Sole.
