2. Eternights - Game Infinite Gameplay (Part 2)
Prepare to be enchanted by the upcoming indie game "Eternights." This captivating adventure promises players an immersive journey through a mystical world, rich with unique gameplay mechanics and an enchanting narrative. With its evocative art style, innovative gameplay, and a narrative that promises to tug at heartstrings, "Eternights" is poised to become a standout title in the indie gaming scene, offering an experience that captures both imagination and emotion. We were able to play the pre-release demo, and can already see this being on of our top games of the year. It is fun, visually stunning, and intriguing. This game feels like indie on AAA budget and definitely needs to be on your radar.
3. Viewfinder - Game Infinite Review
We review this fantastic indie puzzle adventure here.
"Viewfinder," an indie game breaking new ground, combines puzzles and perspective in a fresh way. Players manipulate their viewpoint to solve intricate puzzles, unveiling hidden paths and altering objects. The game's surreal landscapes draw inspiration from optical illusions, creating an immersive atmosphere. As players delve into the mysteries of this world, the narrative intersects with the gameplay, encouraging introspection. With its innovative mechanics and artistic style, "Viewfinder" promises to reshape how players approach puzzles and narratives alike. Viewfinder is one of the best games we have played this year so far, and is an easy INDIE GOTY, and GOTY 2023 contender. If this one isn't on your radar, it needs to be.
4. Storm Edge Wind of Change
We play the opening 15 minutes of Storm Edge Wind of Change, the prologue for the upcoming full release. This retro style rogue lite was something we really enjoyed and found to be a lot of fun. It has an interesting dodge and damage mechanic that we felt was interesting. Watch our gameplay here on Gi Plays.
5. The Bunnyman
Check out the official teaser for upcoming indie horror game The Bunnyman. Extra Pair of pants not included.
6. Ontotis - Trailer
More spooky Indie Horror! We were sent a code for this recent horror game Ontotis from our friends at Indie Pump. We are enjoying our time so far, with more to come, but we wanted to give a quick shoutout here!
