Indie Game Releases of the Week: 22nd to 28th June 2020

This week in indie games, we have the surreal RPG Hylics 2, narrative puzzler The Almost Gone, text adventure The Innsmouth Case, and more.

The titles we have featured for this week in indie games are certainly… rather unique affairs. They’ll bend your mind with what’s possible in the indie space, from hilarious FMV acting to a Lovecraftian comedy to whatever the heck Hylics 2 is (it’s an RPG). There’s also cyberpunk rogueliking in Danger Scavenger, and thoughtful puzzle-solving in The Almost Gone.

Also be sure to check out our Honourable Indie Mentions and Other Indie Releases! If you think we missed a game coming out this week, let us know below!

Danger Scavenger

Danger Scavenger is a roguelike top-down shooter set in a cyberpunk dystopia, where you control anti-corporate rebels named Scavengers as they fight off the hegemony of all-powerful corporations. The game rewards risk with reward, making it as hard as you want it to be. You can also team up with other Scavengers in your scrap-happy combat.

Hylics 2

Hylics 2 is a surreal RPG that’s… quite the sight to behold, with a combination of 3D-scanned clay models and stop-motion animation, all creating a thoroughly bizarre and mesmerisingly unique world.

There’s a plot too, it involves stopping a tyrant’s minions from resurrecting him. Although the game is a sequel to Hylics, you don’t need to play the original to enjoy this one.

The Innsmouth Case
