Hi there and welcome to urge Indie Gaming where another time we take a glance across the varied
storefronts for the simplest looking indie games expected out over the week.
After the normal slow start to the New Year , there are plenty games out in the week
to get excited about then thereon , let’s grind to a halt in.
Up first and in no particular order, Encodya is predicted out onto PC via Steam and GOG
today as this video comes out, January 26th.
As a number of you out there’ll already remember , this game had a successful Kickstarter campaign
in the summer of 2019 where it raised just over fifty six thousand us dollars, or around
forty-one thousand uk pounds supported today’s rate of exchange which beat their initial targets
by around 170%.
We’re really taken by the artsyle and therefore the games overall look and feel.
Having seen the demo, although this was a while ago, there’s something of a mixture here
with output you would possibly see from a Studio Ghibli production all tied along side cyberpunk
elements with it also having a way of humour and literary genre that might be right reception
coming from Monkey Island.
In terms of the gameplay, well here we’ve some extent and click on adventure with players also
facing randomly generated puzzles with the developers having said the sport will offer
players an excellent challenge and a singular overall gaming experience.
While we’ve stepped back lately from our KickStarter coverage, if you enjoyed that
series and would really like to ascertain more, please allow us to know down there in those comments.
Up next, expected to return out January 28th we’ve Olija (pronounced o – lee – ya)
and while it’s published by the ever wonderful Devolver Digital, it certainly seems to be
flying under most people’s radars.
While we cant argue it all looks rather bleak, it’s pixel art is undoubtably appealing
with the sport offering players a story a few shipwrecked man and his journey through
a strange and terrifying world of Terraphage.
We spent a while over the weekend just gone with the demo which as this video goes up
is still available via it’s steam homepage.
Overall we actually enjoyed the exploration side of things and also the combat which feels
spot on – the utilization of the characters legendary harpoon feels nicely tailored to the tasks
at hand and therefore the boss fights were fun, meaty and well paced.
We didn’t find the demo overly difficult and hey that’s just us although we feel
this one could be a tad more accessible than others love it .
Olija is predicted to land on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and therefore the Nintendo Switch.
Moving on and something we discovered only a couple of days ago with it being one among the foremost
interesting looking games expected out in the week we’ve Gods will Fall.
Expected out on PC, all of the standard consoles and also onto the Google Stadia service.
All of this reads like something we should always really enjoy.
Players will take hold over 8 randomly generated hero’s from their back stories
to their physical abilities which shape the sort of skills and weapons they’re ready to
sling about the place.
The overall Celtic theme also looks delightfully pleasing as do the landscapes the caves and
the various creatures and critters great and little we’ve seen from the pre-launch trailers
and public facing information.
Of course all of this suggests well not such a lot if the combat and other systems don’t all
gel well together and while we’ve yet top play it, we’ll be picking this up to play
on launch day to ascertain if it’s any good come launch day, January 29th.
Up next and one among the primary games we ever featured here on the channel back in January
2017, and while the sport has been out for just over a year on PC, The Pedestrian scurries
onto the PlayStation platform later within the week.
As you’ll probably tell, this one’s all a few 2D action puzzling platformer within
a stunningly put together 3D city scape.
Your aim is to maneuver your stick person creation from point A to point B in what begins as
a fairly simple exercise although soon, the problem ramps considerably.
There’s such a lot to love during this one with it arguably being one among the higher hidden
gems within the puzzler genre from the entire of last year.
Moving onwards and another game that’s already out on variety of platforms already,
Nintendo Switch owners finally get the prospect to enjoy Heaven’s Vault when it also comes
out via the eShop also on January 28th.
Now this one is best described as being an open world narrative adventure with you needing
to piece together, learn and understand a hieroglyphic language.
With around 20 approximately hours of open world playtime and 3000 approximately separate words to decipher,
Heaven’s Vault is another gem of a game and one all Switch owners who like their story
driven and puzzle heavy games should definitely consider getting hold of.
Next up and something that’s just a touch bit different we’ve Disjunction.
While much of the recent stealth based gaming attention is sort of rightly on the recent Release
of the new Hitman, which may be a rather wonderful cartoony delight of a game, Disjunction aims
to deliver upon its own stealth action quite gameplay which seems like its giving more
than a touch nod towards the first Metal Gear Solid.
To achieve success , well players really do got to stay out of sight and hustle their way
around the place within the dark and shadows afforded by the environment.
Players also will got to affect self aware guards and other such enemies with you needing
to bundle their bodies into hiding places as best your able.
Of course, if that doesn’t take you as something you’ll enjoy we assume you’ll play this
in a enthusiastic style and to heck with all that stealth nonsense but still having seen plenty
of gameplay from this in recent weeks, we can’t imagine players are going to be ready to stay
completely peaceful or silent which again, might bring something that switches up
the gameplay elements shifting from tip toe stealth into fast and frantic run and gun
So yes, Disjunction looks hugely fun and once we’re done recording and editing this launch
wrap up video, we’re headed over to Steam to download the demo before its launch like
many others in the week , on the 28th.
Disjunction is additionally headed onto the PlayStation, switch and Xbox platforms.
Yet another game out in the week on the 28th, and another game we’ve featured over the
years within our KickStarter showcase series we’ve Sword of the Necromancer.
Now this was an excellent success story in terms of what proportion money it brought in via that specific
crowd sourced platform with it taking in only under 1 / 4 million us dollars or around
one hundred and eighty thousand uk pounds – a powerful feat in any currency.
As for the sport , well during this one players are going to be facing a dungeon crawler action RPG
that’s also said to possess variety of rogue-lite elements thereto .
The weapons you’re ready to wield are all procedurally generated and what’s more,
this one comes with a couch co-op option which is usually another bonus.
If you haven’t had an opportunity to ascertain this or fancy a try before you purchase quite thing
well you’ll head on over to the games steam page with a link down there within the description
and devour the prologue to ascertain what’s what.
Sword of the Necromancer is predicted to return out onto PC, Playstation, Switch and therefore the Xbox.
Coming out of Early Access in the week on, yes you guessed it correctly on the 28th, Curious
Expedition 2 has already been a true pleasure to play and we’re expecting many others
to pick it up with its 1.0 release.
Here we’ve a turn-based exploration rogue based game where you’re having to manage
your resources and set foot on some epic traveling and campaigning.
Much of this as might be expected is procedurally generated in not just how the planet looks
but also within the storylines which are said to form every playthrough and adventure a
different overall experience.
We’re keen to ascertain how the developers have worked on how the characters you play with
interact with one another and form meaningful relationships.
Same goes for the combat which sometimes within the early access version could feel a touch
bit dare we are saying soft round the edges.
Either way, at 4K on PCs this all looks well during a few words terrifically beautiful.
While this comes out in the week on PC, console owners are going to be ready to play it a touch later
in the year with it coming to the Switch, Xbox and PlayStation platforms.
The last but one new game out in the week to feature during this video, Cyber Shadow is for
many, one among the foremost hotly anticipated games call at the primary quarter of the year.
The game clearly wears its inspirations fully front and centre with it looking backwards
with its 8 bit art syle but forwards in how it delivers with it employing a modern approach
to its precision platforming and overall combat system – the boss battle look particularly
engaging and something we expect are going to be super fun and enjoyable to experience.
If you liked the recent The Messenger and fancy more of an equivalent then Cyber Shadow really
should get on your radar and associated Wishlist’s.
CyberShadow is headed to PC and every one of the standard consoles with it also being available
from day 1 via the Xbox Game Pass service.
And the final game to feature during this weeks new game release rundown, THOU may be a hand drawn
point and click on adventure that appears absolutely charming.
Furthermore, given its score comes from Christopher Larking, who brought us the
soundtrack to Hollow Knight, we will also expect it to be an aural delight.
Players will guide a touch girl and her robat companion through numerous wonderful looking
fish planets and while you are doing , you;ll be puzzling away and finding more about the parents you
meet and also your own character and their mechancical friend.
Like many games out in the week , players are going to be ready to get their hands on this one via
pc and every one of the standard consoles with it also beginning too by way of the google Stadia
So there we go, those are our picks of the games beginning in the week – be happy to
let us know if you’ll be playing any of those games or if we missed anything out down
in the comments.
