Top Tuesday: Indie Games I’m Looking Forward To

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!

I’ve been playing through a lot of older games lately, but I’ve been keeping up with the news and Twitter and have noticed a few indie games that are coming out that really piqued my interest!

1. Switch or Die Trying by Threye

This is a platformer game that looks extremely hard. The main point is that you’re going to die a lot, but you should get back up and keep trying. You play as “I” and have lost all your friends, the other 25 letters of the alphabet. Your mission begins to find them all through 75 levels. It’s available on Steam and recently just came out for Xbox One.

2. The Cold Case of Noella Bejerot by RockTheClock

This is a visual novel mystery detective game. You play as a rookie “detective” who is afraid of the sight of blood. You solve crimes trying not to faint adding a little more stakes to each investigation. Kris and I played the Demo, which is available now on Itch.io and the full version of the game will be released on April 21, 2018. I’m looking forward to it.

3. Glitched by EnHouseStudios

A choice-based RPG, Glitched is a game where the main character is aware of you, the player. They’re aware of the video game and you two work together to help figure out how his world has glitched. It seems like a fun, twisty, mystery! The demo is available on Itch.io now and the full version will be released this fall.

Browsing around on Tumblr, I found a post about a game called Glitched. It’s slated to come out to PC and Mac this fall, with releases on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later.

The premise of Glitched is that the main character — Gus — becomes aware of the player. Throughout your journey together, Gus will have conversations with you about reality, self-awareness, the meaning of life. As you have these conversations and make choices for and with Gus, Gus’s personality with change which, in turn, effects how the other characters react to him. Characters will be attracted or repulsed by you and your party depending on how you act, drastically altering the story.

While the main mechanic of the game is to interact with other characters throughout your journey, there are also battles. Battles are simple turn-based RPG-style that include a card system. With the ability to build up your deck and multiple paths to choose, Glitched certainly sounds as if it’ll have plenty of replay value.

It seems like a great game! The demo is out right now, if anyone would like to give it a try. The trailer below showcases a charming, 8-bit pixel-like world for the game, along with decent music:

What do you think? Are you up for giving Glitched a try?
