Indie Game Releases of the Week: 23rd to 29th December 2019
22 Dec, 2019
This week in indie games, we have the noir adventure Grayland, comical RPG Cthulu Saves Christmas, hippo party game Clumsy Rush, and more.
’tis the week of Christmastime! It’s a good time to reflect on all the great indie games that came out this year (or indeed, this decade), but you shouldn’t ignore the games that are coming out this week! Bear in mind that we couldn’t find any games releasing on the PlayStation 4 this week, so the list is geared towards PC, Xbox One, and Switch.
Clumsy Rush (23rd December on Switch)
Clumsy Rush is a party game starring adorable hippos. Grab a bunch of friends, grab a crown, and try to get it to the finish line. Your friends won’t make it easy for you, of course.
Cthulhu Saves Christmas (23rd December on PC)
Cthulhu Saves Christmas marks Zeboyd Games’ return to its roots with a successor to the PC indie classic Cthulhu Saves The World. This Japanese-style RPG comes from the creator of Cosmic Star Heroine, and it looks to be a wacky adventure blending humour and Lovecraft. And of course, Christmas.
Grayland (24th December on PC)
Grayland is a noir adventure game in a world full of greys, where you play as a blue bird trying to survive. There’s more here than meets the eye, though – you’ll be surviving radiation and a war between humans and aliens, all while trying to save your loved ones.
Barbarous: Tavern of Emyr (25th December on Switch)
Barbarous: Tavern of Emyr is a tavern management game in which you play as a prematurely retired barbarian hero. Also, you have a teenage daughter to take care of (or deal with, as you might see it), and you still have the evil archenemy to defeat. But the tavern patrons come first.
PM-1 Inverse Universe (26th December on PC)
PM-1 Inverse Universe takes you to a… literally colour-inverted universe, where everything that should be black is now white. You control an alien ship that you can upgrade, and you must shoot down alien forces that are trying to destroy Earth.
