You’re dead, life has left you … But that doesn’t mean the adventure ends there. Aboard a ship, you head to the next life accompanied by a legendary smuggler. It invites you to relive the most important moments of your life, from your earliest memories to the peak of your career, including first loves and first heartaches. But memory is sometimes selective. The smuggler will force you to go beyond appearances and dig up the sad truth that hides your life. This shocking and rewarding story is told by an amazing mechanic. It’s actually the blink of your eyes (via the camera) that will allow you to keep track of your memories.

It’s been five years since the Manic Mansion events took place. The Purple Tentacle, created by crazy scientist Fred Edison, has become damn smart and dreams of dominating the world. There’s nothing its creator can do about it … at least not at this time. He actually decides to send Bernard, Laverne and Hoagie first to stop the Purple Tentacle from developing its big brain. But of course, not everything happens as planned and the companions are sent at different times. We need to find a way to make their mission the same and find themselves at the right time. If this point’n’click has been a classic for a long time, sadly it’s likely to lose its aura. So it’s a chance for the youngest of you to discover it through a remastered version.

There are a lot of rogue-like ones on earth and they are very difficult to identify. Although this is what Dicey Dungeons did by presenting us with a game like Slay the Spire, but with dice. You play as one of the six legged dice (the Thief, the Robot, the Inventor…) in his quest to escape the terrible Lady Aléa. To do this, you have to defeat dungeons full of monsters. The structure is a bit classic, but the game system, the synergies and the good longevity, not to mention the more particular artistic direction for the genre, make it a memorable experience that can only be. we will advise you, especially at this price.
The hours spent on your book Where is Charlie? do you miss Hidden Folks has a solution. Through hand-drawn black and white scenes, you must find over 300 characters. If you rely on your first impression, you probably won’t find it. You have to browse, turn through bushes, open some doors and any other action that can be done in 32 interactive sets. In short, it’s a giant hideout with an artistic direction that is as minimalist as it is attractive. Hidden Folks is a great way to relax through a surprisingly complete and even shocking experience.

Kingdom Two Crowns may be an award-winning game, but it won’t enjoy much fame. And yet this hybrid experience between adventure and micro-strategy has a lot of tricks up its sleeve. It is through a beautiful pixel art world that a unique way to develop your own kingdom happens. Far from Civilization and other Tropico, Kingdom Two Crowns is not a 4X or a management game. If you play as a monarch, by going on an adventure you can recruit new members and improve your kingdom, not forgetting to take part in the war if necessary. Since its release, the title has had several modes including a cooperative that will allow you to conquer the lands of Kingdom Two Crowns with your friends.

There must be a Devolver game on this list of indies. Our focus thus fell on a somewhat special roguelite, which unfortunately has less popularity than other games published in our favorite video game punk. That’s why we’re continuing the big pixel work with Loop Hero. If to these roguelite mechanics and deck builder, the title is the same as many others, it’s the automatic feature that interests us. Here, the outcome of your run will not come from your skill and other combat abilities, but will only be calculated according to your statistics. Thus, like a gacha, it happily invites you to start a small game while continuing your business. Suffice it to say that for hyperactive people who want to optimize their time and do multiple things at once, this is the dream game.
Do you want to live the life of a little robot? You are immersed in the Machinarium in the skin of Josef, a young group of scrap metal that has been unfairly discarded. Its purpose? Back in the city where he was unfortunately expelled to face the terrible Dark Brotherhood. But his journey promises to be long and there will be many encounters along the way. Add to that some puzzles and you have a pretty classic game of its own. But it is wrong to qualify it as that, because it reflects its touching story, its overflowing creativity and its excellent awareness of this universe. The Machinarium is a ten -year -old classic that is embarrassingly left to sink into oblivion.
There are still places where the inhabitants are fed all sorts of ancient myths. It’s quiet that some future developers are growing up. When the time came to make their own game, it was inspired by these stories that they brought The Mooseman to life. In the shoes of a Man-Moose, the title invites you to travel the worlds of ancient myths and discover spirits lost among the layers of creation. With its atmosphere brought on by traditional Komi songs, The Mooseman takes us into a world little known until now to live a unique experience with something to mark the spirits.

When we talk about the town editor, we usually think of SimCity. But there are games to move from big towns to live in more beautiful villages to build from the left. Townscaper is never a game with complicated or more modern mechanics. You may find that it is easy to add. In fact, the richness of Oskar Stålberg’s title is not based on its form but on its content. Her unusual approach and her creativity will make this a special experience, especially relaxing and satisfying.

We take you on the final trip to the amazing island of Elk. In these lands with a special appearance, all the inhabitants have a story to tell. Sometimes weird, sometimes annoying, all these stories written in the game are from real stories. It is in the skin of the young carpenter Frigg that you discover them. Arriving from the big city, he was initially afraid of being bored on Elk Island. But the stories of his neighbors quickly changed his mind and, for others, marked him forever. In addition to its very well-polished narration, Welcome to Elk offers fun mini-games to punctuate this real life lesson in video game.
