The 6 most memorable indie games of the week (PC, PS5, Series, Switch, PS4, One)

Game News The 6 most memorable indie games of the week (PC, PS5, Series, Switch, PS4, One)

It’s Monday. So it’s time for the JV editorial staff to give you a little look at the independent games coming up this week. Between the DLC of indie juggernaut Cuphead and the arrival on Nintendo Switch of the latest game from the creator of The Binding of Isaac, there are big names, but also small, more moderate experiences.

Phobia – St. Dinfna Hotel

Do you know the history of St. Dinfna Hotel? This respected establishment has enjoyed a fairly decent reputation … at least until it became the horrific scene of a series of disappearances and strange paranormal phenomena. Since then, it has been abandoned and the residents of Treze Trilha have avoided it like a plague. Now that you know what’s going on there, your curiosity as a journalist has no choice for you: you have to go to the old hotel and find out what is behind all this history. Of course, this whole activity is much more complicated and ugly than it looks. In addition to the presence of a fairly unique camera and a less friendly fanatical sect, pay attention to your poor little heart (and body). Fear and death are not far from Phobia – St. Dinfna Hotel. There is already a demo, if you dare.

The Legend of Bumbo

We no longer present Edmund McMillen, the creator of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac in particular. A true independent master, he presented us in November 2019 as a puzzle RPG like the chaos of his predecessors: The Legend of Bum-bo. This week, the title dared to hit consoles in all its stripes. As a reminder, you play as Bum-bo, a special little creature who confronts his enemies in a much more special way: by aligning four identical elements. Each defeated enemy allows you to earn coins, allowing you to improve your spellings in a casino and then return to battle and so on. EBetween Match-4 and roguelite (plus some deckbuilding elements), The Legend of Bum-bo offers a somewhat unusual experience that confuses some and delights others. Console players will soon be able to choose their side.

Hook 2

Who says you have to have a lot to make a good game? There is a whole range of games that aim to put minimalism at the heart of their experience. This is particularly the case for the titles Maciej Targoni makes jigsaw puzzle minimalist is its mark. In January 2015, he introduced us to Hook, a little game meant to be as sensible as relaxation. With over 60 levels in it, the title manages to be enticing, as shown by the more than 7000 opinions provided on Steam and is often more positive. Seven years later, the developer is therefore back in charge of Hook 2. Like the first opus, the goal is to rack your brain a bit to get all the hooks that are on the screen. If the principle remains the same, Hook 2 offers a bit of depth by dropping in pure 2D. Note that a demo is already available on Steam if the concept intrigues you.

Alaloth: Champion of the Four Kingdoms

Gamera Interactive’s RPG as it is known to players. It must be said that over the years he has been able to find a place for himself during E3 (and non-E3) conferences. Recently, during the Guerilla Collective Showcase we saw him again. In addition to new images, Alaloth – Champion of the Four Kingdoms offers itself, on this occasion, a launch date for its early access. Players will be able to discover this RPG is inspired by big names like Baldur’s Gate and Pillars of Eternity from this week. Whether you are more orc, human, elf or dwarf at heart, you can allow your courage and power to speak to defeat the demonic forces unleashed by the god Alaloth. In the program: demanding fights, a dark medieval world, a fierce pace and alliance options that will determine the rest of your fate.

Cuphead: The Taste Last Course

Cuphead: The Taste Last Course finally comes to your screens. And that’s good because players who enjoy the dynamic and retro atmosphere of Cuphead are starting to get impatient. Granted, the Cuphead Show made it easy for some to swallow the pill with multiple postponements, but the latter certainly didn’t come close to the title that quickly became a classic in the indie catalog. Good news, the DLC release date has finally arrived and there is no delay in the horizon. Soon you can discover the new Watercolor Island with Mugman, Cuphead, but also Mrs. Chalice. This is to help the latter as you embark on a new adventure with a series of bosses to knock down. In addition to Mrs. mechanics. Chalice, there is no big news in the horizon, but there is always the same expertise on the side of the MDHR studio that offers us an island that is richer and more working than ever before.

I was almost on the floor

A little less than a year after its PC release, Potata Company’s awful point’n’click landed on all consoles. You can learn about the adventures of Alex and / or detective Adam Trust through an adventure that mixes investigation and horror. It’s in Strange House #9 that everything happens and there’s a good chance you won’t get out without pain. If detective Adam Trust was there to investigate, Alex would be in the most bizarre situation. He, for some reason seemingly unknown, was imprisoned in this famous house. Wanting to get out of it, he has to deal with the monsters that live in it, but also find out the fate of the poor souls that live there. Note that a demo (in the name of Almost My Floor: Prologue) is available on Steam if the game intrigues you. I’m almost on the floor also received positive reviews of the Valve platform.
