1. Three Skies

Release Date: Available Now on Mobile, April 2023 - Steam

Players take on the role of a party of 4 cultists, facing the fears of the Lovecraftian universe together. With smart AI mechanics and a variety of unique enemies, teamwork is key to survival."

Creepy dark forests are where Indie Games often thrive. This Lovecraftian horror dark forestry adventure intrigued us upon first viewing. We are excited to partner with the makers of Aresys to give away four copies of the game to our fans!


3. AIKODE - (UPDATE) #GiFriends Official Gi Trailer #2 NOW WITH GAMEPLAY

Release Date: TBA

Developer: ACE animation

Developer Description: "Aikode (or Ai-kode) is an action role-playing game (ARPG) Hack and Slash in which players take on the role of an android from the "Order" in search of the truth about the world around her."

(Update April 2023: We are so excited for this update on AIKODE. In our most popular Gi Trailer to date, we now get a glimpse at gameplay in this epic sci-fi adventure. If you haven't seen the new trailer, definitely check this one out. AIKODE is quickly becoming one of our IGRU audience's most anticipated games.)

(Update May 2022: We are excited to bring ACE into our GiFriends Indie Trailer YT Project! They already have our most popular trailer yet with their amazing game AIKODE. Check it out!)

AI-Kode is just an absolutely stunning 3D game that looks like a mainstream AAA title, and that is why we selected this beautiful game to spotlight in this month's promo background.. This game looks like something we would expect from a senior studio from the likes of something like a Square Enix title. The renders look impressive, and hopefully we will see more progress as time goes forward. It gives us major Platinum - Nier vibes, mixed with Cyberpunk aesthetics, and we love it. The game is slated to have a whopping 6 playable characters, with Aiko being the main. It also features varied combat with sword, gun, and scythe combat types. Ai-Kode is definitely one to watch for. Due to the scope of a game that looks like this, this one "could" be far out, but still deserves a spot on our wishlist. We will keep you apprised if we learn any updates!
