Indie Game Discovery Roundup 040

The Indie Game Discovery Roundup is a list of indie games just announced, upcoming, very recently released, or hidden gems that caught my eye that I would like for you to know about.

Neo Cab, Warsaw, Memorrha, Indivisible, Killer Queen Black


Neo Cab

Neo Cab, developed by Chance Agency, is a game I’ve been following since E3 2018 with no other expectations other than liking the concept of the game. I recently played the demo and the game really impressed me with the game mechanics and choices the player have to make that have direct impact. Playing as Lina, the premise of the game is that you have to find your friend that suddenly went missing in the cyberpunk city of Los Ojos. What helps add to the experience to draw you in is not just the game’s premise, but the graphics and how they do a great job of capturing the emotion on people’s faces. Neo Cab is a game that I can’t wait to play to see how the branching story unfolds.

Warsaw

Warsaw, developed by Pixelated Milk, is a game that I did not have on my radar entering 2019, but I recently discovered it and I’m intrigued by the game. It’s a turn-based tactical role-playing game that takes place in Warsaw 1944 during WW2. There appears to be a lot of similar mechanics to Darkest Dungeon, as Warsaw is a rogue-lite game with army managing and permadeath. What I like in what I see in Warsaw is the reconstructed map of Warsaw 1944 that includes some real historical events, but I hope the events based on reality are marked in some form because I admit I’m not a history buff and it would be a good touch to the game. The other part of the game I hope adds a lot are the army backstories, which can really make this stand out well if done great. If the game genre speaks to you then definitely take a look at Warsaw.

Memorrha

Memorrha, developed by StickyStoneStudio, is a game that I stumbled upon on Steam just browsing upcoming games, which I had previously heard nothing about. What drew my attention to Memorrha initially were the graphics, as the game is extremely visually pleasing with beautiful coloring and a sharp image. Upon further inspection, it’s a puzzle game that bears some resemblance to The Witness, but appears to have much more storytelling and interesting lore, as you investigate a mysterious culture and ancient technologies through completing puzzles and exploration. If you are a puzzle gamer, then Memorrha may be the game for you! I’m glad to bring this game to your attention because this has potential to be a hidden gem of 2019 for puzzle gamers if it delivers on what it appears to be.

Indivisible

Indivisible, developed by Lab Zero Games, is an action RPG platformer that first caught my attention due to the quality of the graphics and soundtrack. Lab Zero Games previously created Skullgirls, a fighting game, and Indivisible is a complete departure with the game being a an action platformer. The premise of the game is that you play as Ajna and she has protect everything she knows from being destroyed. From all that I’ve seen of Indivisible, the combat looks really fun, although it’s tough to see how far the RPG mechanics will go beyond the battling system. Indivisible is a hand drawn game that is definitely an apple to the eye with high quality cutscenes and animation that you should consider checking out if the trailers grab you.

Killer Queen Black

Killer Queen Black, developed by Liquid Bit, is based on a classic arcade game that I admit I never played. This is a competitive 4 versus 4 game where one player on each team can be the queen and the others are adaptable workers that have to work towards achieving one of three victory conditions against the other team. The victory conditions are Military (Kill the opposing queen 3x.), Economic (Workers bring enough berries back to their home base.), or Snail (Ride the snail back to your home base.). Watching gameplay video, the games move and end fast, making this a quick game to play but hard to master and best to play with friends. Killer Queen Black is a multiplayer eSports experience that features online crossplay with ranked and unranked matchmaking with or without friends, along with the ability to create custom matches just with friends and AI. Killer Queen Black is a game that I do believe has high potential to become something special and I can’t wait to play it myself!

REMINDER: What the Golf?

I included What the Golf? in a previous indie game discovery roundup in 2018, but the game is soon to be released and I want to remind everyone not to overlook it. It is releasing on the Epic Games Store in addition to already being released in Apple Arcade. What the Golf? looks just as interesting and wacky as before and can’t wait to play it myself!


Release Date: October 1, 2019
Platforms: PC
You can check out What the Golf? here on the Epic Games Store.
