Last week, I talked about a couple of my favorite indie games (so far) that I’ve played on the Nintendo Switch. There are still so many games that are on my backlog, indie or not.
I’ve even been scrolling through the games that are on sale on the Nintendo eShop just to explore new things. Whether I buy the game right away or not, I’m adding to the backlog and getting excited about new (to me) games.
Except there are two games that I didn’t find through the eShop but through someone I follow on TikTok. There are two new games coming out within the next week or two and I can’t wait to nab them for my collection.
Cozy Grove is classified as an “adventure, simulation, puzzle, lifestyle” game. It was developed by Spry Fox and published by The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild. It’s due to release on the Nintendo Switch on April 8, 2021.
When this game came across my TikTok feed, it was explaining as an Animal Crossing-like game but with a twist. You live on a quaint island, can go fishing, craft items, make friends.
The twist? The island is haunted. These friends are spirits and, unlike Animal Crossing, each spirit has their own unique background and story. As you progress through the game, you’ll figure out their story and bring color back to the island.
A cozy game similar to Animal Crossing but has ghosts? Sign me up!
What Comes After
Get the tissues out – What Comes After is a side-scrolling adventure with a heartfelt story all about loving yourself. And guess what else? Ghosts!
Developed by Rolling Glory Jam and published by Flynns Arcade, What Comes After will release on the Nintendo Switch on April 1, 2021.
It’s classifed as an “adventure, education, communication, lifestyle” game where the protagonist is boarded a train to the afterlife. The thing is, she’s not dead. Everyone else on the train is and she learns their stories, befriending people.
Given it’s all about learning to love yourself and you do that by speaking to the dead, I have a feeling it going to contain some heavy elements. I’m so intrigued though and can’t wait to try this one out.
I’m excited to have found a couple of games that seem interesting that touch upon the paranormal without being a spooky horror game. I’m looking forward to diving into some new games with strong stories.
Have you heard of these games? Do they sound interesting to you? Let me know in the comments below. If you liked this post, please share it!
