Top 10 BEST Indie Games Coming Out This Week


Hi everyone, welcome back to Get Indie Gaming
where today, we’re counting down 10 of the best looking indie games coming out this week. At this weeks number 10 Good Company is a
tycoon management simulation game that looks pretty darn sweet. Like many games of this genre, you play as
the CEO of a firm that’s in the robot building business where you’’re looking to create
new products, grow your business and generally make a decent profit all within an industry
that sees continual. We’re looking forward in seeing how the
game tackles the journey from a simple operation and how it scales with you researching and
delivering new technologies from battery cells to the differing robot parts and how it deals
and presents what seems to be the games overall logistics and sales systems and of course
how you’re able to grow and expand your firm into something bigger. Good Company will be in Early Access for between
8 to 14 months although it ships already in a state where the core gameplay loop is already
in place. The finished game will see additional content
in terms of products, crafting abilities with it also having coop multiplayer added to the
core single campaign mode. As tycoon sims go, this one’s also a bit
of looker too with it coming out, again in Early Access on March 31st. Up now at number 9 and something that’s
just so very silly and so very welcome given the times in which we find ourselves, Chapeau
is a straight up fun couch co-op game from Salt Castle Studio based out of Austria. Now we agree all of this appears just that
little bit daft and while we’ve yet to play it, the idea at play is one where you’re
playing as hat within a multiplayer platformer with mid air hat based combat within differing
game modes all set amongst levels that have been inspired by Austria’s historic city
centres. Each of the hats have their own distinctive
what the developers are calling characteristics which better suit some playstyles rather than
others with it supporting up to 4 players in split screen with online gaming also present
by way of Steam Remote Play. There is a single player option although we
doubt we’d look at it too closly as it’s the multiplayer that has our interest. So yes, this just looks so very daft and possibly
excellent fun with it out on Steam and the Switch on March 31st. From something as silly and wholesome to something
given the world around us might be a touch too close to the bone, At number 8, The Complex
is an interactive FMV and comes out on March 31. Written by Lynn Renne Maxy, part of the Emmy
award winning team from the handmade’s tale, this choose your own adventure game features
8 different possible outcomes with it using something the team behind it are calling a
real time relationship and personality tracking systems. This means your choices and actions affect
how certain scenarios progress with them changing how the film ultimately comes to an end. At the end of each play though players are
given a personality score and a breakdown of how you played the game with it touching
upon 5 basic dimensions of personality such as your openness, agreeableness and neuroticism. FMVs can and are often hit and miss affairs
although we have our fingers crossed on this one. The ability to pause the gameplay for improved
audience participation for streamers is a nice little touch with The Complex coming
to PCs via steam and all of the current generation’s usual consoles. Out on home pc by way of Steam on March 31st,
Fates of Ort is very much a retro inspired fantasy RPG with a focus on strategic decision
making with the story driven and altered by the decisions you make while playing the game. The pixel art looks really well done and with
a strong focus on using magic with 12 different spells that can be combined with three elements,
Fates of Ort looks likely to reward strategic playing rather than simple brute force play
styles. As with many of these games, we like the look
of the overall campaign and will be checking this out to see how it deals with what are
said to be difficult choices you’ll make along the way with the characters you’ll
choose to save or leave behind. Fates of Ort comes out via steam. Up at number 6 and firstly we may need to
apologise as the launch date seems to be a little up in the air. While the Steam homepage says Jack Axe is
coming out when its all shiny and polished, we have press info from a couple of usually
reliable sources saying it’s coming to Steam on April 3rd. Inspired by a mix of norse and filipino mythology,
you’ll play as Jack in solo play or with her sisters in multiplayer within a 2D open
world adventure. We like the look of this one with it’s colourful
graphics and also how it seems to use the axe chucking abilities to better explore the
world and undertake the platforming challenges. This type of mechanic reminds us of a few
games such as Flinthook and if executed in a similar style, could make Jack Axe another
little gem. Again, apologies if we’ve got the launch
date all wrong and if so, consider us hanging our heads in Virtual Shame. Moving on, next up Curious Expedition this
weeks number 5 was first out in 2016 with many outlets such as Rock Paper Shot Gun calling
it the best rogue like out all year and after a good while with the follow up already in
a closed beta, the original gets a release on consoles on April 2nd. So after all this time, if you haven’t played
this already, why should you consider picking this one up now? Well for us, it’s always been a game about
bite sized little or not so little stories and occurrences within a rogugelike exploration
game here you choose from a number of famous people such as Nicola Tesla and Amelia Earhart
where you set off on a series of 19th century expeditions to find legendary golden pyramids. Given everything’s procedurally generated,
some runs are dare we say easier and more fun than others although the little snippets
and stories you can get out of this with your collection of travellers is what’s kept
us coming back to this over the years, and will see us picking it up again most likely
on the Switch when it comes out on April 2nd. At this weeks number 4 with it offering us
all some much needed silliness, Totally Reliable delivery service is out this coming week on
Steam, Switch, PS4 and the Xbox One. Like a few others in this weeks new game release
rundown, our primary focus on playing it will be the local couch co-op options with it offering
up to 4 player action. While we’ll play this mostly locally, you’re
also able to play this online with others as you all go about the very, or not so very
serious business of getting deliveries out to their various destinations. The rag doll physics and platforming with
you jumping, diving and sprinting about the place all look, well it just looks so much
fun and again just so silly and is everything we as a small collective all stuck indoors
for the foreseeable future need to keep our spirits up. Pleasingly out on April Fools day, April the
First, we think we’re very likely to live stream us playing this perhaps for the first
time all together – that is if we can get the tech to work. If you’re picking this up or would like
to see us stream it on launch day, let us know down in the comments. Up next and yes we couldn’t help ourselves
and with The Otterman Empire, we have yet another little dose of silliness with this
coming out April 2nd. While this has a full single player story
mode, it’s the split screen co-op mode that’s made us want to show this off in this weeks
launch video round up. What’s more though, the single player mode
also comes with a co-op option so that’s even better and like a few other’s featured
in this rundown, it looks a awesome way of spending some of this time indoors with it’s
front and centre full on house party gaming vibes. We love how vibrant it all looks, how quick
and fast it seems to be all with 8 adorable looking characters to choose from, all of
whom you’re able to change and customise to make them look just how you want. This is one party shooter within a genre we
rarely play we’re honestly looking forward to playing as soon as we’re able. The Otterman Empire comes out on Steam, the
Nintendo Switch and the Xbox One. This weeks runner up already out on Apple
Arcade, Over The Alps comes to Steam on March 31st. Firstly we adore the art style which remind
us of the travel posters we see from time to time in museums or art galleries with it
using long lost postcards to reveal its story of intrigue and espionage within 1939 Switzerland. All in the story and characters are superbly
written with the branching tale offering a mix of touching moments, adventure, double
crossings with it having a cadence that rises and falls depending on the choices and decisions
you make while playing. With its multiple endings and general warming
aesthetic, we’re extremely looking forward to spending more time exploring Over the Alps
and yep, as many we suspect are wondering, a further roll out of this on the Switch at
some point would again be handsomely welcomed. At number 1 and while as this video airs we’re
under a review embargo, we’ve played In Other Waters from start to finish and can
in all honesty say as a group and as individuals, we’ve never played or seen anything quite
like it. Sure, the theme and premise in many ways is
similar to Subnautica were you find yourself within an alien ocean while exploring the
environment and local ecosystems while also being part of something far larger. That’s largely where the comparisons should
end. In Other Waters, you play as an AI within
a scientists dive suit with you assisting to move them around and navigate the environment. Now here’s the thing, it’s all played
out by way of a subtly and brilliantly understated piece of user interface that if you let it,
expertly guides you thorough out while all the while looking spectacular with it’s
colours ebbing flowing and changing depending on where and how deep you are within the ocean. It’s all so deeply relaxing and while you
don’t get to see all of the creatures and structures your character and scientist describe
and document are so very well written and pulled together its just so easy to imagine
and mentally build a view of the world as you go from place to place. We expect this may disappoint a few people
and though it really shouldn’t as what’s so very key to in other waters is the strength
of the narrative with it being bang on for our current climate of looking and finding
hope within dark times and how we might reflect and relate to our positions within the world. So yes, in other waters is a special game
with it being unlike anything we’ve played before and it’s something we feel fully
able to recommend with it coming out on April 3rd via Steam and the Nintendo Switch. We played this on the Switch with a copy provided
by the publisher for review purposes. We’re curious, if you see anything here
you might fancy getting hold of, let us know down in the comments. While you’re here, please like the video

see you all here again next time for another indie game video

These are the best video games to play during Quarantine!!


– Hi, everyone. Welcome to this video. Welcome back to my channel. And I wanted to give you a quick update on a previous video I did a few months ago related to the games
I’m playing right now. So considering that we’re
spending 95%, 98% of our time at home right now, we’re in
Canada, I’m in Vancouver, we’ve been sorta quarantining
at home for quite some time, so lots of time to work, but also lots of time to
catch up on all those games that you didn’t have
any time to play before. So these are the games
that I’m playing right now during quarantine time. So game number one is
called “Octopath Traveler,” and it’s a JRPG style game. Turn-based games where
you build your character and you develop your
skills are commonly known as JRPGs or Japanese RPGs. And “Octopath Traveler” is one of them. It’s a huge game. It’s actually a very expensive
game on Nintendo Switch. It’s about 80 bucks. But I was able to get
it on discount for $39. I think it’s still on. This is March 27, so you better run and see if it’s still on
discount on Nintendo Switch. But it’s a very good deal ’cause it’s a very, very
big game and great game. I’m loving it. I really like JRPGs. It takes me back to my times
playing “Final Fantasy III” or “Final Fantasy IV.” There’s a lot of different
paths to explore. You develop your character. You can create different parties
with different characters. I’m trying to get the hang
of the different parties and characters right now. But it’s a very cool game. They also have the
option of playing a demo, so you get to play a demo for three hours, see if you like it. And if you do, you can,
afterwards, actually buy the game, import your save from the
demo to the full game, which is a great option. I love that option, and
that’s exactly what I did. So I played for three hours, I liked it, and then I bought the game
and I imported my save. The other game that I’m
spending a lot of time on, but to be honest, my wife is spending way more time on it than I am, she’s actually been stealing
the Nintendo Switch a lot from me at night, is “Tetris 99.” It’s a very cool game. It’s a very cool “Tetris” revamp. So the concept is you play “Tetris” just like you would anywhere else, but you’re actually
playing against 99 people at the same time. So the game matches you
with 99 other players, and you’re basically trying to
beat each other till the end. So as people die, the game
gets increasingly hard until there’s basically one person left or the winner for the session. It’s really cool, it’s really addictive. My wife has been playing a lot of it. She gets really excited,
sometimes aggravated with the way things
go, so it’s really fun. I recommend everyone plays it. So the other game that I’m
playing right now as well, it’s on the iPad iOS, but
I think it has for Android. They have it for Android and also PC. The game’s called “Plague Inc.” It’s kind of a joke, because, obviously now we’re quarantined. We’re in this coronavirus
COVID-19 kinda scare. Everyone’s scared about it. Everyone’s hearing the crazy news on how exponentially keeps growing. And “Plague Inc.” is
actually about a pandemic. It’s a pandemic that is trying to overcome or take over the world
and destroy humankind. And you play the role of the pandemic trying to destroy humankind. And the AI or the computer
is playing against you, trying to stop you from
destroying humankind. So it’s pretty fun. It’s a bit of an old game,
but I guess it’s back at the hype right now because
everyone wants to play it, wants to see how pandemics work. They wanna see the dynamics. It’s interesting because you
can create custom scenarios, so you can actually
download the custom scenario for coronavirus, for COVID-19 out there. I actually have downloaded it, and I’m trying to play through
it and see how it works. Really recommend it. So again, for iOS,
Android, and I think Steam. It’s on Steam as well. Finally, as I said before,
I’m an avid PS4 player, so I’m trying to play
through some of the games that I haven’t finished yet. So I’m currently playing “Control.” I’m also playing “Spider-Man,”
which I’m loving it. And I’m about to start
playing “Death Stranding.” And I love Kojima, so I’m
really looking forward to it. So guys, thanks for watching. I hope you like the games
I’m playing right now. I wanna know which games
you are playing right now. Please don’t forget to
subscribe for the channel, like this video, leave comments below on the games you’re playing. Thank you so much, and see you next time. (upbeat pop music) ♪ Sherwa ♪

Top 10 BEST NEW Indie Games of April 2020

Top 10 BEST NEW Indie Games of April 2020


April is a huge month and new game
releases hi everybody welcome to get into gaming where today we’re taking you
through the best and most promising indie games you’ll want to check out
this April 2020 I don’t know how you do it traveling
alone all the way out here let’s get things going at number 10 with filament
which on the face of things is a relatively simple looking puzzler
although it’s really anything but with it having in place is a staggering depth
in terms of the puzzle challenge it offers while also giving players a
narrative story that’s tremendous it’s got far more depth than we had really
initially expected filament has you playing the role of an astronaut
stranded aboard a spaceship with you guiding a small robot like Bowl by
either filament through rooms where you need to wrap a cable around various
objects and in doing so open up the next room while simple enough at first the
demo we recently played shows how ingenious filament is it takes a simple
puzzle premise while gradually adding more and more iterations to it there’s
also a great-looking 3d art style at play here which reminds us a little bit
of portal with the puzzle sections also split up with you exploring the
spaceship and finding more about the crew filament comes out on April 23rd on
to home pcs by way of steam next up at this month’s number 9 help will come
tomorrow is a narrative driven resource management game where you have a few
tweaks and differences to the usual format you’ll usually find within such
titles set within the harsh and frozen Siberian forests within a timeline of
the October Revolution 1917 while yes you’ll need to meet the needs of the
various characters in gathering resources building a camp and looking
after everyone’s all-round health and well-being there’s much more going on
with help will come tomorrow than you might usually find within these resource
survival managers the developers have been keen to pitch this with a greater
emphasis on the story and narrative elements of the game with it having some
really interesting overall character is six it uses what’s called a relationship
system where individual characters have just like all of us their own unique and
different seeing personal habits and traits these in turn will have a big
impact on their relationships with others with their own mental state
affecting them as individuals but also the survival of the group as a whole
we’ve played the demo over the past couple of weeks and given the wide
social sphere of the games characters there’s often a delicate and fine line
to be had in dealing with and helping shape a cohesive group relationship that
for the most part sees you needing to understand and manage well you’ve got to
manage the different class and social affiliations it’s a super interesting
construct as we’ve already said that seems to work pretty well in practice
help will come tomorrow launches April 21st on PC and all of the normal
consoles at number eight the procession to
cavalry is the successor to Jo Richardson’s critically acclaimed for
last things and comes on to pcs this April the 9th it’s set in the same world
as the predecessor although if you haven’t picked up the first the story
here can be played independently it’s a traditional point and clicker
with verb coin interaction menus all of the while using simple drag-and-drop
mechanics stuffed full with what appears to be some good old-fashioned British
humor with more than a fair not too Monty Python its lofty subject matter is
all treated in what seems to be a fine and refreshing level of flippancy who
all the while traversing through hundreds of different paintings from the
Renaissance you’ll have time to steal a ship hunt for treasure and perhaps take
the opportunity to have a chat with the lord himself
this looks marvelously silly and if were honest feels almost perfect for where we
find the world as it is today driving its way into the number seven position
for april twenty twenty and what are the standout indie game gems from the PAX
East just gone cloud punk as you can see from the footage on the screen now
well it’s heavily influenced by the cyberpunk genre and sees you play as a
character well it’s a delivery driver on her first day working for a semi legal
courier firm known as the same name as the game’s title from what we’ve seen of
it so far it looks a fairly open-ended overall experience where you’re able to
take on delivery jobs or just cruise around the city taking things as you
find them you also don’t necessarily have to drop off parcels at their
intended delivery destinations you’re able to earn just that little bit more
by perhaps bending the odd rule here and there although such actions are likely
to have consequences with them altering the direction the story takes and your
relationship with others cloud punk will be out on April 23rd for home PCs on
Steam and will be out later in the year on the PlayStation 4 the Nintendo switch
and the Xbox one moving on in this month’s rundown at
number six and recently featuring in our Most Wanted Metroidvania games expected
out in 2020 if you haven’t seen that video yet you can check it out by the
card on screen now or by clicking the link down in the video’s description
below I’ll be honest having played the demo over the past month or so biomass
is quite simply rock hard and as the saying goes as tough as very very old
boots it’s going to appeal to a certain segment of gamers who relish in such
opportunities as afforded by well we’re talking sakura levels of hardness here
and in all honesty it’s a tad above where we normally feel comfortable that
being said the pixel art has being handsomely crafted as has the overall
law which is deep and offers players a comprehensive look into the game’s
backstories while making for a solid and interesting read so back to the combat
and yeah dealing with the enemies is hard enough let no in the boss battles
that are extremely challenging each of them also have their own hidden phase
which is activated by meeting various requirements and having done so players
are given a distinct reward for such actions biomass comes out April 28th on
home PC via Steam and if you love a challenge and revel within gorgeous
pixel art this could be one for you set in 1977 Barcelona general Franco is dead
with Spain almost ready to have the first free election since the civil war
in the flower collectors your players are retired policemen as you try to
unravel a mysterious murder all while you sit within a wheel chair within your
apartment helped by an assistant and no-nonsense go-getting journalist who
becomes your eyes and ears you take on the task of solving what appears a
complex mystery by way of your camera binoculars and a radio transmitter with
you very much peeking out from behind your curtains now this is a pretty
fascinating looking game particularly with its setting within a post Franco
Barcelona but also in how it’s dealing and experimenting with voyeurism in
what’s clearly an overall story that’s driven by world building and narrative
also from from what scene of the footage so far your
characters backstory and demeanor are also likely to make the flower
collectors in places a little bit of a challenge to play this comes out two pcs
on April the 21st dreamscaperers the debut game from San
francisco-based developers afterburner Studios a team comprising individuals
who previously worked on the likes of 2k and Epic Games here we have an action
RPG roguelike with elements of brawler’s top-down shooters and dungeon crawlers
your players cassadee a young woman who finds herself dealing with depression
and suffering from horrifying nightmares now in this free to play prologue you’ll
take Cassidy through her waking days as she looks to build meaningful
relationships with those around her the memories you form in the waking world
can also be harnessed within her dreams with the two states of being asleep and
awake being interconnected what you do in one will have an effect on the other
with around 4 to 6 hours of playtime it’s not so little taste of what’s to
come the shadows the full launch come the summer later in the year up next in at number three itta is a
bullet-hell boss rush adventure that sees you play as a girl on a mission of
revenge all over the deaths of her family while being guided by the spirit
of the family’s late pet cat inspired by themes of personal struggle and
perseverance eater will feature 18 bosses in what looks to be a super-tight
twin-stick shooter this accompanied by a suitably dramatic musical score we
understand players will be able to mix and switch combat styles a way of
finding different weapons each having their own differing characteristics and
attack styles said also a ship with accessibility options in what sounds a
similar way to those we so adored and Celeste
for example if things get too tricky you can toggle invincibility or change let’s
say the damage multipliers at any time it will come out on home PC and the
Nintendo switch on April 22nd at number two and something that’s very
really so very different with it being quite unlike anything we’ve seen before
in other waters is essentially a narrative adventure where you assume the
role of an AI assistant aiding a xenobiologist who’s searching for her
missing partner aside from the exploration of looking around the
different parts of the alien ocean where you’re able to explore reefs or dive
deep towards the ocean floor you also unlock various upgrades that help and
enable you to reach previously inaccessible areas while under review
embargo shall we say what makes another waters so different and yes we’ll leave
it there comes in part with it having you play by way of the multi-part UI
system with allowing you to interact with the world around you via a really
intuitive set of controls in doing so you can scan your surroundings collect
samples and generally explore and investigate the alien ocean it’s also
very pretty – and it’s use of complementary colors which seem to ebb
and flow and change as you move through the different oceanic layers is well
beautiful what is so good in what in other waters does though is how it
focuses on the overarching story and the relationship between the AI and the
pilot on the face of things there’s so much here – like with another waters
coming to PC and the switch on April 3rd at the number one spot for April 2020
and we’re thinking for many this won’t be too much of a surprise
moving out drops this coming April 28th and if you’re thinking it kind of looks
like overcooked but within a furniture removal setting but you’re pretty much
spot-on and you know what has games like these go it’s almost certain to overtake
the overcooked series as our most loved and go to local couch co-op game of all
time what it doesn’t is slightly different and for us better way that you
have with overcooked is how the chaos seems to avoid some of the passive
aggressive tendencies that seem to arise when playing a game within such a high
pressure setting as a restaurant it’s just so honestly so much fun you’re able
to play as many different characters including cats and dogs with also having
a huge range of accessibility options you’re able to increase
time limits reduce the difficulty and even lower the weight of some of the
items to make them easier to carry there’s also a scalable UI dyslexic
friendly fonts and subtitles as huge fans of local party couch co-op games
moving out is brilliant and from our time with it so far it’s likely to be
one of the best of its kind and we’ve no doubt it’ll feature in our game of the
year rundown come December moving outs coming to PC and all of the usual
consoles so which of these games or any others out this month are you most
looking forward to playing be sure to let us know in the comments and while
you’re here how about clicking that like button and subscribing to the channel if
you haven’t done so already while also turning on the notification barrel so
you don’t miss out on any of our videos thanks once again for watching we’ll see
you all again next time

Top 10 BEST Alternatives to Animal Crossing | PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox


with the new animal crossing finally
having launched if for whatever reason you’re not able to play it just yet here
are the get indie gaming top 10 similar games to Animal Crossing in terms of how
they play and how they make you feel we’re sure we’ll keep you busy in the
meantime up first in this animal crossing inspired rundown forager landed
on home PC the Nintendo switch and PlayStation 4 in April of last year we
can kind of guess what many of you might be thinking as it’s not the most pretty
of games to feature in this list although to pass it up because how it
looks would be a grave error as in fairness the design sparsely as it is is
unashamedly low fire and low-key graphics definitely keep the game
running nice and smoothly in what at times are incredibly busy sections with
plenty of on-screen action all going on at the same time well the early few
hours are focused in resource acquisition and building these
activities can soon be automated which takes away any kind of grind you might
feel had these tasks required constant attention where forager really succeeds
though is within its crafting systems with them not only being really good fun
but they’re also super simple and free you up to be able to create a huge array
of items and it’s never boring in doing so the mini Zelda like dungeons are also
well implemented and are worth getting into now we missed forage a first time
around when it launched on PC and we’ve loved our time with it on the switch a number 9 and first out back in 2014
and available on nearly every platform aside from the switch castaway paradise
features a tropical island setting and just like the other characters you have
an animal crossing all of the other villagers are animals most of your time
spent in castaway paradise sees you helping your fellow residents as you go
about making the island that little bit better for you all to live on there’s
plenty of fruits to be grown weeds to be tied it away and flowers to be picked
it’s pretty much a chilled affair and while you can go out catching fish this
might be that little bit too much for some with it easy just to sit around and
relax whilst enjoying your beautiful surroundings coming up next and from the
creator of Harvest Moon little dragon cafes best bits come from how it’s able
to harvest a tangible sense of communal spirit and we think it’ll gel rather
nicely with fans of the Animal Crossing franchise you play as one of a set of
twins who after their mother falls sick are asked to take over in the running of
the family cafe you’ll also happen to look after raised
and nurtured dragon within a story that’s pretty nonsensical although that
doesn’t really matter too much aside from running the cafe
you can also set out and explore the world with your sibling and Dragon and
while doing so undertake cooking minigames the usual farming like
activities and of course chatting with others it’s also super chilled and
utterly delightful little dragon cafe is available on PC PlayStation 4 and the
Nintendo switch from late December 2018 and are number
seven in this games like Animal Crossing countdown is garden pause like a few
others in this rundown you begin having inherited a farm with you having to
expand it while also build up the town close to where you live you do this by
earning coins from running a shop which can be supplemented by exploring caves
where you can find and take home treasure we quite liked how you’re able
to play as a number of animals from say a rabbit’s a cat a bird and badger and
even a horse once your town begins to grow more characters arrive to come and
live which unlocks more items and more quests for you to undertake with no
enemies to fight this really is a super enjoyable and casual game that also
happens to look and sound pretty darn nice as well you can play a garden pause
on your home PC by way of steam we also hear it’s coming out soon ish on the
switch first out way back in 2011 with later ports onto consoles handhelds and
mobiles terraria has gone on to sell more than 27 million copies across the
various platforms while more sandbox and simulation it offers many things to make
such games as Animal Crossing so appealing to so many people with its
game player revolving around exploration building crafting and mining or within a
procedurally generated world however unlike others in this list there are
plenty of enemies and nasties to fight which include boss battles so we concede
this won’t be to everybody’s taste although we thought it worth sharing
here particularly for anyone who might not have come across it before and at number five and somewhat of a
curveball for this list although if you are looking to mirror the charm and
grace as you find with an animal crossing you’ll find plenty here and
with it having one of the most enjoyable narratives out of the whole of last year
we taxi Oni sees you play as Kai as she visits the titular island in what’s
described as a mutant soap opera full of small-town pleasantly gossipy
individuals with a fine dose of the supernatural
what’s so astute with what mitat Sione is able to do is how the writing makes
you feel and care about each of the characters within the painterly
hand-drawn environments and while evidently not within the same genre as
Animal Crossing it shares so much and how it can make you feel while playing
the game we taxi Oni is out now on PlayStation 4
and on home pcs in fourth place in this rundown well it feels there isn’t too
much left to be said about this magical not so little darling of the indie game
community first out in 2016 with it seeing you quit your job in the city
before moving to a farm you’ve recently inherited like many if not all of the
games in this Animal Crossing like showcase it delivers a huge wedge of
charming gameplay and the interactions you have with really getting to know
your fellow townspeople being key to just how great this game can be then
with its fishing mining planting collecting and the odd bit of combat
here and there stardew valley is still one of the games we come back to time
and time again when we want to play something that’s just so kind and full
of happiness moving into the top three and jumping right onto the first rung of
the podium is my time in porsche visually it’s one of the best games
within the whole of this rundown with its vibrant colors
sparkling cartoony looking characters and striking environments which extends
outwards to all of the other animals and creatures you find as you go about your
business in a few words well it really is well it’s rather beautiful it’s also
essentially about building and pulling things together with an ax gameplay Lou
hunting crafting planting and farming around my time in Porsche is really
engaging and as the days pass and seasons change you have different
holidays and celebrations with which you and your fellow NPCs can all rally
behind the resource management side of things is also really well implemented
and super easy to organise the combat sections are also pretty cool and like
everything else within my time in Porsche it’s super easy to lose yourself
for hours at a time my time in Porsche came out in early 2019 for home PCs and
all of the usual consoles my time coming in at number 2 yonder cloud catcher
Chronicles was released in the summer of 2017 on the PC the PlayStation 4 and the
Xbox with it also making its way to the switch in May the following year like
many of the games in this rundown much of the appeal comes from its super
relaxing gameplay adventure loops or you can journey across the island of yonder
where you’re free to roam about the place doing this you so please as you do
you’ll come across 8 different biomes each of which having their own
distinctive look and feel but also their own creatures who you’re able to
befriend by offering them goodies from your inventory we really enjoyed the
parts of the game where you can take on a number of jobs around the place from
running your own little farm having a go at say tailoring becoming a chef or even
being a carpenter and so doing you’re able to help out your fellow residents
with its deep player customization and vibrant world you can do basically what
you want to do at your own pace yonder the cloud catcher Chronicles is a fine
gem to uncover if you’ve yet to do so at number one kind words is so unlike
and like animal crossing and it’s certainly not a sim and some people
might even doubt whether it’s a game however it does offer in places things
fans of new leaf will instantly recognize with also offering a
magnificent and yet again wholesome overall experience in kind words you
send and receive letters by way of a deer in a post person’s cap each of
these letters are from real people around the world and what’s a testament
to whatever filters the developers have in place the content of the letters are
so very reminiscent of those you might receive within the animal crossing
letter system much of the time it’s people are asking for help or advice and
you’re able to respond and just like animal crossing letters arrive the
moment is sent so far everything we’ve seen within kind words is so very
uplifting and in these uncertain times it’s a fine place to wile away a few
hours while waiting to get hold of the new animal crossing ok so those are our
picks of the best 10 alternate games to play while you wait to get hold of the
new animal crossing let us know your favorites down in the comments and hit

Top 15 New Metroidvania Indie Games of 2020 | PC, Switch, PS4, Xbox


we really like our Metroidvania games
here at get indie gaming and looking at the release schedules there are plenty
of great looking games in this genre coming out this year and beyond hi
everybody my name’s Stuart and today on get indie gaming the top Metroidvania
games were looking forward to in 2020 and perhaps the year after let’s get all
this going at number 15 with vigil the longest night it very much wares
inspirations front and center it looks like a cross between the likes of salt
and sanctuary Castlevania and blood-borne headed onto the PC and all
the usual consoles this year with a launch timeline that still to be
confirmed it features a lady called Layla on a quest to save her home from
the encroaches of an evil force that’s investing the surrounding countryside
this 2d action platformer on the face of things will offer a precise and
technical combat and comes with the aim of challenging players in what’s said to
be a high degree difficulty this one comes also with a strong and compelling
overall story that’s full of eldritch horror do you remember already out on the Apple
arcade service and coming to steam as well as the switch at some point soonish
in most is a terrific story driven puzzle platformer where you’re able to
play as three distinct characters all within a marvelously darkened
interconnected story one of the most enjoyable features comes from your
ability to lure your enemies into spring traps which feels most pleasing when
successfully pulled off as for the pixel art well as you can see it’s a fine
looker with the audio side of things being not too shabby at all we’ve played
this already via an iPad I look forward to doing the same again while out and
about on the Nintendo switch up now and with a prologue that’s out on March 26th
with it being free to play unbound worlds apart we suspect we’ll have a
full launch over the course of the year featuring some stunning looking
hand-drawn artwork it will provide a nonlinear story with its core coming
from magic portals which will offer players different mechanics and impact
how the character is able to interact within the game’s environment so what
does that all mean well it feels similar to the types of things you might have
seen in dark where the laws of physics are upended meaning you have to adapt
and rethink how you might go about solving the puzzles you come across
given this has Metroidvania elements some of these puzzles well you won’t be
able to solve them the first time you come across them although you may be
able to do so later in the game once you’ve learned the necessary skills
unbound looks pretty special with its mix of combat and puzzles and reminds us
all of a sharp-looking cartoon dark fantasy story this one’s coming to home
PC first with perhaps other platforms to be announced moving on down this rundown
and at number 12 that guy is a super dark fantasy adventure featuring an
ordinary boy having been turned into a monster while your new form affords you
various monster-like abilities such as running on ceilings to spitting acid
abilities that will also evolve as you take new skills from defeated bosses
you’re also looking to try hold on – what makes you human the guys
is expected out in the autumn on two home pcs up next and in Cova your
players a space mercenary within a narrative driven sci-fi Metroidvania
that appears driven by RPG elements you’ll join one of three factions each
having their own perks missions and dialogue options with you also able to
undertake naturally enough various quests and side missions to earn credits
to upgrade your skills ship and weapons the most curious aspect of kona comes in
what the team are calling a combat control system which takes aspects of
first-person shooters and pairs it down for 2d with you able to fully aim and
control your projectiles Cova is expected out at some point onto the
PlayStation for the PC the switch and the Xbox one quite literally swinging
its way into the number 10 slot biomass with its sword and lightsaber gameplay
is having played a recent demo one of the hardest games we’ve played in recent
months with it being utterly devilishly difficult we’re talking Sakura and Dark
Souls levels of hardness that in all honesty well it’s probably above what
our sadly aging reflex and coordination skills are
more used to that aside though biomass with its pixel art is a stunner and
comes with a deep and rich lore which seems finally created and giving much
back to those who fancy taking a look into it as for the boss battles each of
them has a hidden phase triggered by various requirements and if met will
deliver their own distinct rewards biomass is also out towards the end of
April so if you fancy having a crack at this monster of a great looking game
there’s not too long to wait before it comes out on own pcs and number nine Flynn son of crimson
will see you place Flynn a young man having been orphaned as a child within a
beautifully handcrafted 2d pixelated world that’s all threatened by a looming
darkness it comes with an emphasis on player
discovery and with a nonlinear exploration system it also seems to have
more than a decent overall combat and boss battle thing going on with it
Flynn’s son of crimson should be coming to home PCs this year alongside the
PlayStation 4 and Xbox one another success from the Kickstarter funding
service they’ll and is clearly looking at creating a tribute to the
action-adventure games you might have seen back within the 8 and 16-bit days
of old although it’s also looking to add current and modern elements to keep it
fresh whilst offering something new the pixel art looks particularly striking as
to the backgrounds and in-game environments each using a huge color
palette and exquisitely put together character animations as the player well
you’ll be able to wander this open world and travel from one town to another all
while speaking with NPCs and doing the usual things you do in such games combat
is customized by way of your choice of weapons with you naturally enough being
able to learn new skills and abilities which you’re able to access part of the
map previously unaccessible failings should come to steam this year with
possible future releases on the usual consoles at a point that’s to be
determined coming up next at number seven and
something we’ve not really seen before dark lighters plan to come out an early
access later this year with it being an action-platformer within a cyberpunk
world full of supernatural beings we’re truly taken with how all of this looks
the graphics particularly and the characters to the overall environment
design where they’re so very vivid in their animations and vibrant and the
choice of colors at play the other aspect of note comes from the enemies
you’ll face we believe most if not all are invisible to your character’s naked
eye and are only visible from the light coming from a drone that accompanies you
within the darkness expect it out on the switch PlayStation 4 and via Steam
originally this coming summer over the past few days as this video airs towards
the end of March 2020 developer pixel art studio have announced be shooting
with its ninja platforming action elements will now be coming out over the
summer of the year off next Ashida n– is looking very much a classy
affair with this hand-drawn pixel art more than it’s eight different levels of
platforming and scrapping gameplay the delay is said to enable the team to
fully deliver upon the game’s expectations and rather than rush it out
before it’s ready they’re taking the time they need to get it all done moving
onwards and into the top-5 anew the distant light is a single-player
side-scrolling action adventure game all within an open world that’s full of
puzzles surprises and mysteries successfully kick-started in 2017 with
it being featured in our monthly Kickstarter showcase back in March of
that year we’re really looking forward to see how this one is able to tell what
seems to be a pretty unique kind of tale using visual storytelling alone a newer
distant light is inspired by classics such as Metroid limbo and Cave Story and
will likely appeal to such fans with having around 40 plus hours of gameplay
all within what appears to be an exotic and surreal looking environment
this looks really rather superb it’s coming to pcs first and perhaps at
consoles at some point in the future announced as coming to the switch during
the Nintendo indie world event held back in late 2019 axiom verge 2 will be out
first on the platform sometime this year by all accounts Tom Happ the creator and
developer began working on the sequel as long as four years ago with players
discovering the origins of the axiom verge universe within this upcoming
sequel much like the original we’re expecting the heavily pixelated
side-scrolling game with heaps of power-ups and upgrades of plenty
with also lots of platforming action adventure based challenges with all new
characters abilities and a fully revamped gameplay system this drops at
some point later in the year we’re thinking around the time for the
holidays one of the hidden gems from the recent Steam Spring Festival of games
carrion comes in at number three this one’s been dubbed the reverse
horror game rather than playing as the usual hero a person with the
responsibility of taking down the usual monster or bosses in this one you’re
playing as the monster with you escaping from a lab all the while harvesting and
munching upon the humans you find as you go about your killing spree the more you
gobble the bigger you get which in turn means you’re more powerful and able to
cause all the more destruction as you can see it’s incredibly graphic and gory
with it expected out this year on home PC the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox it’s
also published by devolver digital so that’s another hallmark of quality right
there in the runners-up position we have recompile a game we’ve unashamedly
featured here on get indie gaming a good number of times already to be honest it
looks better each time we see it and speaking with people who went to the PAX
East event back in Boston in March it’s looking even better than the footage we
have on screen at the moment this apparently comes from what we understand
to be an older build of the game if you’re new to recompile your playing as
a sentient piece of AI code with your task being to escape deletion or within
what seems to be one heck of a action shoot platformer like others in
this countdown we’ve had a decent hands-on time with a few demos and well
initially the platforming seems simple enough the difficulty ramps up fairly
quickly and we think this one will offer players a stiff and all-round solidly
hard challenge we’re expecting recompile to launch this year onto home PCs by way
of steam and would love to see it out on consoles at some point as well at number
one and for many people who watch this channel given the levels of interest
this will come as no surprise hollow knight silk song is the sequel to the
much-loved and multi award-winning hollow knight with it expected out at
some point this year or what seems more likely with it rolling into 2021 this
time you players Hornet or within a fully revisited game with all new powers
abilities and a hundred and fifty more beasts monsters and Knights for you and
Hornet do battle against we’ve been lucky enough to have hands-on time with
silk song at a couple of events over the past six or so months and from what we
played of it so far it delivers more on what made hollow Knight so popular but
also a few noticeable tweaks and changes as to better make use of Hornets
differing abilities as for the music well the composer of the hollow Knights
core is back working on silk song 2 yet again we’re expecting something that’s
already utterly magnificent so if this is expected out when it’s good and ready
hollow Knight silk song will be out first on PC and the switch with perhaps
other console launches to follow that’s just about it for this rundown hopefully
you’re all keeping well as best as you can out there and please let us know
which Metroidvania is you’re most looking forward to seeing down in the
comments as always many thanks for watching and we’ll see you back here
soon for more indie game videos

WORLD OF HORROR – Early access First impressions


I have a confession to make. I am very picky with my horror games. Although I enjoy horror games a lot, I honestly
don’t play that many of them. Mainly because I find that very few of them
manage to catch my interest. What I’m trying to say is that, when I do
get curious about a horror game, I’m only ever going to stick with it if I’m truly interested
in it. And let me tell you, this game managed to
hook me from the first 10 minutes I played and it’s definitely not an experience
that I’ll forget anytime soon. Just like the title screen says however, the
game is still in early access so if you’re interested in checking it out please do keep
that in mind. So whatever thoughts and feelings that are in this video will obviously also be based on the early access version of the game as well. WORLD OF HORROR is an adventure game in which
you have to solve a number of different mysteries in the small sea-side city of Shiokawa in
hopes of warding off a terrible evil. The game was inspired by retro adventure games so if you’re familiar with games like Arkham
Horror or that sort of adventure board game, you’ll most likely find WORLD OF HORROR very
easy to pick up. But do not worry! Even if you have no experience with these
types of games and you just want to check the game out because you think it looks cool,
there’s a very handy tutorial that’ll answer any questions about how the game works. So don’t be too scared. As you start a new adventure, the game will
ask you to pick a case to investigate. Each one of these cases that you choose are
built up of a number of events that are randomly generated. This means that every playthrough will be
slightly different from the next and that you’re encouraged to investigate the same
mystery numerous times in order to see all possible events and see all possible outcomes. During your investigations as you’re traveling
to different places to check for clues you’re going to be faced with both enemies and different
types of skill checks. The combat is turn-based and features an action
bar which you can fill up with any kind of actions you’d like to take in battle as long
as you have the required equipment. You have several different options whether
you’d like to actually fight enemies, run away from them or try your hand and some form
of communication. The success of all of your actions obviously
depend on your current stats and equipment. And speaking of your stats and equipment,
there’s a leveling system which will allow you to spend points leveling up whatever stats
you’d like. As well as a shop that will sell you certain
items, but you can also come across items as you’re investigating. The outcome of the skill checks will also obviously
depend on your current stats. (So keep that in mind before you try something
stupid and end up dead like I did.) So although each playthrough of the game will
be of very varying lengths and very different overall, they’re all generally pretty short. And that is again because you are encouraged
to investigate the same mystery several times. You’ll see new things if you do and depending
on your choices, you might find a new ending. If you’re looking into this game, you’re probably
going to hear the same thing being repeated a lot. And that is that this game feels very Junji
Ito inspired. But that’s because it’s true. WORLD OF HORROR isn’t an adaption of any of
Ito’s stories and it’s not a rip-off in any capacity but it’s very obviously inspired
by Junji Ito. Although the extremely intricate drawings
from a Junji Ito manga can’t be translated into something like a 1-bit artstyle, that’s
also not the point. With its uncanny faces, body horror and placing
unknown horrors into the mundane, WORLD OF HORROR ends up feeling Junji Ito inspired. One can also absolutely not ignore the very
obvious Lovecraftian influences. When cosmic gods come knocking on your door
you’re bound to think of H.P Lovecraft. That’s not to say that the atmosphere doesn’t feel unique because it certainly does. The mixture of Japanese urban legends and
cosmicism is very interesting because it weaves together folklore with the horrors of the
unknown. So although the setting feels very average
every day, you’re bound to be creeped out when you open one of the lockers at school
and can’t even wrap your head around what’s currently living inside of it. It’s a game that wraps its claws around you
within minutes of starting it. Because of the nature of the gameplay, all
your decisions will either doom you or save you and it’s up to you to figure out what
the best thing to do is. All while trying to, you know, stay sane in
the face of eldritch horrors. The pixel art-style is something that although
fairly simple-looking, really gives the game a special feel. The black and white is reminiscent of old
manga and some of the monsters in this game really made my stomach turn. Something that’s also really cool is that
the game has a bunch of different colors palettes and gives you the choice to either customize
your color palette yourself or to pick a random one before each new playthough. This sounds really simple but it makes a huge
difference, especially when you go in for your 2nd and 3rd playthroughs because it can
give scenes a completely different feel. It is absolutely also worth mentioning that
this game was made by one guy. We’ve had several of these amazing releases
in the past few years that were made by just one person, and it’s really cool to see people
so passionate about their projects. So while WORLD OF HORROR may not be the longest
of experiences, that’s not something that holds it back. As a matter of fact it’s quite the opposite. It’s adapted a very effective short story
formula which is what makes it so addicting. As a horror fan, I would strongly recommend
it. It’s been a while since a game got under my
skin in the same way that WORLD OF HORROR managed to and it’s just as spooky as
it is refreshing. I was really longing for something unique
to catch me off guard this year and I was pleasantly surprised to find it hit me upside
the head. So if you’re interested in checking this game
out, keep your eyes open because WORLD OF HORROR will be available on Steam, Playstation
4 and the Nintendo Switch this year. And like I mentioned earlier, is already available now in early access. I hope you enjoyed this video. Thank you so much for watching.

GTA Online Best Vehicle Discounts (19th March 2020) – GTA 5 Weekly Car Sales Guide #30


Hello everyone I’m Broughy1322 and in this
video I’ll be going over the various vehicle discounts that are now active in GTA Online
as of Thursday 19th March 2020. All of these are gonna be available for 1 week until Thursday
26th March. The podium vehicle this week is the JB 700W,
which can be won by spinning the Lucky Wheel in the Casino. It’s in the Sports Classics
class and normally sets you back just under 1.5 million dollars. It’s not raceable and
performs exactly the same as the normal JB 700, but can be a fun addition to your garage
with some of the weapons, such as the secondary spike and oil slick weapons. The Premium Race this week is Senora Freeway,
which is an old style point to point race across blaine county for the Supers class.
Since it’s mostly about top speed and slipstreaming here, the Deveste Eight is probably your best
bet although the Kriger and Emerus as usual will be competitive options given there are
at least some corners here. Also, the Regular Time Trial this week is Storm Drain, with
the RC Time Trial being Cypress Flats. In terms of regular vehicle discounts, there’s
even less than usual this week. You’ll get 35% off the Emerus and Nero, bringing their
prices down to just under 1.8 million and 1 million dollars respectively. Since the
Emerus is at the top of the supercars class for racing, it’s a worthy investment if you
don’t already have it, but if you have the Krieger you also don’t need it. There’s also
40% off the Buzzard if that’s something you still don’t have, and that’s it for this week.
Pretty slim pickings it’s fair to say, and with everyone having to stay at home recently
I’m kind of surprised Rockstar haven’t put more on sale. You can of course find out the
lap times and top speeds of all of the vehicles that I’ve mentioned here by checking out the
playlist links in the description and pinned comment. In terms of discounts specifically for Twitch
Prime members who’ve linked their Rockstar Social Club accounts, you’ll get 80% off the
FMJ and Tempesta just like last week, and with these Twitch Prime deals ending on March
31st, which is a Tuesday, instead of the usual Thursday, I’d bet on us seeing a new downloadable
update on that date. Also if you do have Twitch Prime and you haven’t already make sure you’re
giving your free subscription to a Twitch streamer each month as well. It doesn’t have
to be me, but make sure you’re giving it to someone as you’re basically supporting them
with a $2.50 donation without any extra cost to you. I’ll be back with another video just like
this next Thursday, the 26th March, where there won’t be any new vehicle as we’ve reached
the end of the Casino Heist DLC drip feed, and we’ll go through everything that’s changed.
Feel free to subscribe and turn on notifications so you don’t miss it. Thanks a lot for watching
everyone, and I’ll see you next time.
