This week in indie games, we have the action-adventure games Anno: Mutationem and Tunic, freaky pet sim Wobbledogs, and more.

Most of our indie game picks this week involve fighting enemies in various forms – be it as a giant kaiju monster, a small fox with a sword, a sleek specialist in a cyberpunk world, or turn-based combat with a band of settlers on a journey. And then there’s Wobbledogs, a simulation game about taking care of adorable mutant dogs. Everyone needs a breather, right?

Be sure to check out the other original releases below our featured picks, including such titles as Mad Streets, Hyperbolica, Capybara Spa, Shredders, Kur, Aethernaut, and more!
