Indie Game Releases of the Week: March 28 to April 3, 2022

This week in indie games, we have the adventure game Catie in Meowmeowland, monster-collecting RPG Coromon, horror game Ikai, and more.

The indie world is closing out March with some absolute whoppers that’ll cover just about all kinds of moods. Whimsy? Check. Spookiness? Check. Classic Pokémon-like monster-catching? Check. Werewolves and cowboys? Check. And if you’d prefer to let your mind wander on a long night drive, we have that too.

Don’t forget to check out the other original indie releases, which include some very promising titles like Abermore, FixFox, In Nightmare, Terrorbane, and Moss: Book II.

Ikai is a first-person horror adventure game set in feudal Japan, in which you play as a shrine priestess coming face to face with dark spirits from Japanese folklore. The psychological horror game gives you no defenses against the malevolent beings you’ll encounter. If you choose not to flee, you can draw protective seals, but you’ll have to do so under pressure all around you.

Weird West

Weird West is an immersive sim RPG set in a dark fantasy reimagining of the Wild West. You play as various characters over the course of the game, who eventually culminate in the final chapter. The game features immersive sim-like freedom in letting you make your own decisions, with the world and story changing according to how you play. No surprise, given that it comes from the co-creators of Dishonored and Prey (2017).

Catie in MeowmeowLand

Catie in Meowmeowland is a point-and-click adventure in the tradition of titles like Samorost and Machinarium. You play as Catie, who finds herself in Meowmeowland after following a strange cat in her garden. The text-less adventure takes place in a surreal and unpredictable world full of puzzles to solve and curious characters to meet.

Glitchhikers: The Spaces Between

March 31 on PC, Mac, Switch

Glitchhikers: The Spaces Between is a narrative adventure game that takes you through “the spaces between places” – i.e. late night drives, airports, trains, and so on. The game has you ruminating in the stream of consciousness that follows from long journeys, and presents a freeform narrative that has you looking inward while interacting with surreal characters.


Coromon screenshot

March 31 on PC, Mac, Switch

Coromon is a monster-taming RPG where you play as a Battle Researcher who must build a team of ‘Coromon’ creatures and track down a dangerous threat. Much in the vein of Pokémon games, you’ll have to tame the wildlife and challenge the world (perhaps striving to be the very best). The game features extensive difficulty options for chiller or harder gameplay, as you prefer, and over a hundred Coromon to tame.
