Indie Game Releases of the Week: 9th to 15th September 2019
This week in indie games, we have the dark actioner Blasphemous, the chill and supportive Kind Words, the spooky horror game Ellen, and more.
What’s that? Gears? The only gears we’re hearing this week are of indie developers working hard to create diverse and entertaining games. This week, we’ve got action and horror, but also bouncy rhythm fun and chill letter-writing. Sounds like an average day for me. Here’s our round-up of the indies releasing this week.
Blasphemous (10th September on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch)
Developer: The Game Kitchen
Blasphemous is a lavishly-illustrated dark fantasy game that plays as an action-platformer, and it comes from Spanish studio The Game Kitchen. It’s punishing, so if you’re a fan of old-school games, this one looks like it might scratch that itch (with a sword).
Super Dodgeball Beats (12th September on PC, Xbox One, Switch)
Developer: FinalBoss Games
Super Dodgeball Beats mashes up the sport of dodgeball with rhythm gameplay, and the result is something thoroughly catchy. It’s got local multiplayer, but you can also play a singleplayer campaign that involves facing off against strange and powerful dodgeball bosses.
Sydney Hunter and the Curse of the Mayan (12th September on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Switch)
Developer: CollectorVision Games
Publisher: CollectorVision Games
Sydney Hunter & The Curse Of The Mayan appears to take inspiration from classic adventure heroes like Indiana Jones and Tin Tin, Sydney Hunter is about stopping the Mayan gods from destroying the world It plays as an action-platformer and looks straight out of a Super Nintendo.
Kind Words (13th September on PC, Mac, Linux)
Kind Words is already available to Humble Monthly subscribers, but now it’s coming out for everyone. It’s a really chill indie game about listening to lo-fi beats and sending and receiving letters of upliftment and support. And you can apply stickers!
Ellen (13th September on PS4, Xbox One, Switch)
Developer: Red Mount Media, Antarsoft
Ellen is out on PC, but now it’s headed to spook console players. This adventure has you playing as a young investigator looking into the murder of a family. It’s got a thoroughly pixel art aesthetic, but it’s also determined to bring in the gruesome and the scary.
