Indie Game Releases of the Week: 17th to 23rd February 2020

This week in indie games, we have the turn-based tactics game Corruption 2029, the daughter-raising simulator Ciel Fledge, and more.

This week around, we’re still seeing consoles get ports of previously-released indie games. Meanwhile, developers are continuing to toss their fresh new games onto PC. While we’ve got some grim topics this time around, we’ve also got a bit of levity. Be sure to check out the Other Indie Releases page to find out what games are hitting consoles this week.

Corruption 2029 (17th February on PC)

Corruption 2029 is a futuristic turn-based tactics game from the creators of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. Set in a dystopian version of America, you will control special agents (with rather opaque helmets) as they seek out the source of the corruption. The devs warn that this one is quite tough, though – perfect if you’re a veteran of games like XCOM. The game is exclusive to Epic Games Store for now.

The Suicide of Rachel Foster (19th February on PC)

The Suicide of Rachel Foster is a first-person narrative adventure game set in a family hotel. You play as a young woman named Nicole in the year 1993, as you return to the hotel owned by your family with the intention of selling it. Stuck indoors due to bad weather, Nicole must grapple with her family’s past and investigate a mystery she didn’t quite anticipate.

Death and Taxes (20th February on PC, Mac, Linux)

Death and Taxes is a quirky, dark comedy game in which you control none other than the Grim Reaper himself. Your office job requires you to decide who gets to live or die, while doing your best to advance in your career. The decisions you make will have grave consequences (pun intended).

Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator (21st February on PC, Linux, Switch)

Ciel Fledge: A Daughter Raising Simulator is a sci-fi themed life simulation game in which you are the parent of a young, adopted girl. The game is set in a world of alien threat, but there’s still hope on the floating city of ARK-3. You’ll monitor Ciel, take care of her, watch her grow, explore, unwind, and deal with new challenges.

Lair of the Clockwork God (21st February on PC)

Lair of the Clockwork God is the next humorous indie adventure from the creators of the Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That. Although not part of the same series, Lair of the Clockwork God retains the characters Ben and Dan (modelled after the developers), as they attempt to stop all the apocalypses from happening at once. The twist this time is that the game features both point-and-click gameplay (headlined by Ben) and platforming gameplay (headlined by Dan).
