Gris is one of those great-looking indie games, the type that has no trouble hitting a Kickstarter funding goal, though in this case it was publisher Devolver Digital whose attention it drew after months of sending snippets of art and gameplay footage out onto the wilds of social media. Now it’s headed to Switch and…
The makers of soothing production line game Opus Magnum are back with a new one called EXAPUNKS. This time instead of programming chemical processes you’ll be creating computer viruses and hacking into all manner of devices. It hits Early Access on Steam August 21.
Behold Anodyne 2: Return to Dust, the follow-up to 2013's Anodyne, a delightful Zelda-like. Ditching the gorgeous pixel art of the original, the sequel looks a lot grimier. Coming to PC in 2019, the game will include both 3D areas reminiscent of a PS2 game and 2D segments that look more like the first game.
Twin Mirror is a new game coming from Dontnod, makers of Life is Strange and Vampyr. The mystery thriller was announced today on Sony’s pre-E3 showcase livestream with a trailer showing early footage of the game which is slated to release in 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Afterparty now has a trailer giving us our first good look at the new game from the makers of Oxenfree. You play as two dead college kids who need to out drink Satan in order to return to earth and walk among the living. Afterparty’s due out sometime in 2019.
Biomutant is Experiment 101’s upcoming open world, anthropomorphic animal action RPG. Originally revealed at last year’s Gamescom, studio head Stefan Ljungqvist recently went a little more in-depth on some of what’s in the game, including its character creator, at a PC Gamer event.
I Am The Hero is a pixel-art beat ‘em up coming to PS4 and Switch sometime in 2018. Previously on PC, the game has a Dragon Ball Z-ish combat style that helps distinguish it from all the other retro pixel-art games bathed in nostalgia currently out there.
7 Billion Humans is a new game from Tomorrow Corporation, the studio behind Little Inferno. It’s a follow up to Human Resource Machine, its more recent game about people crammed into a massive office trying to solve weird puzzles while machines run the rest of the world. It doesn’t yet have a release date.
Here’s a bunch of the stuff you can kill in Middle-earth: Shadow of War. The game’s latest trailer has Talion bend the knee to a tree spirit, ride on the backs of dragons and trolls, and even face-off against a fire-whipping Balrog.
Assassin’s Creed Origins has a new CGI trailer. That means none of this is real, but hey it still looks pretty. Aired at Microsoft’s pre-Gamescom event, the new footage shows Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, and Ptolemy will all play a role in the game. Also there will be pink and purple dye pits.
The first look at the game’s Starfighter Assault mode has the Millennium Falcon, bright lens flares, and yes, Yoda manning a laser turret.
Children of Morta is coming next year and has a new trailer. Revealed back in 2015, the lush pixel art roguelike is a procedural game focusing on single family. Think FTL meets Bloodlines. We might be awash in these types of indie games at the moment, but I just can’t resist some damn good pixel animations.
Fishing Planet just got a trailer that is surprisingly hardcore for a game that’s about standing around and fishing. I come from the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and can tell you that you are more infinitely more likely to get a sunburn than you are likely to look this badass while fishing.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance has a new trailer and a new release date of February 13, 2018. The “no magic bullshit” medieval RPG was originally due back in 2015 before slipping year after year. Building massive open worlds is hard it turns out, hence the cinematic trailer without gameplay.
Take a look at a supernatural boss battle in the E3 trailer for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The Kickstarted spiritual successor to Castlevania is looking good, though that idle animation is bugging the bejeezus out of me.
A new map, cars and custom goal explosions are coming to Rocket League on July 5. The second anniversary update is free for all players, and also includes a radio option with 18 new songs to jam out to while zooming around the pitch.
A golf Game with delightfully precious-looking sprites and vibrant-pixelated greens? Yes, please.
