Indie Game Releases of the Week: March 8 to 14, 2021

This week in indie games, we have the point-and-click adventure Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse, the audio-based Blind Drive, and more.

It’s the dawn of another funky-fresh line-up of indie games to play, and we’ll be kicking it off with the latest in the Stronghold series, which takes us to East Asia. We also have a point-and-click adventure based on the webcomic Cyanide & Happiness, a game about a very violent bunny, an audio-based driving game (?!), and a bomb defusing simulator.

But that’s not all! Be sure to check out the other original releases, as well as the ports coming soon, listed below.

Stronghold: Warlords

March 9 on PC

Stronghold: Warlords is a castle-building strategy game that takes you to medieval China, Japan, and the Mongol Empire. Apart from building and managing your castle economy, you can also besiege other castles and cities. Unique to this edition of Stronghold is the introduction of ‘warlords’, who are AI-controlled, but will do your bidding should you recruit them.

Blind Drive

March 10 on PC, Mac

Blind Drive is an arcade driving game where you can’t see a damn thing. You’ll have to rely entirely on audio feedback in this B-movie-inspired black comedy as you drive against incoming traffic and stay ahead of the cops. It’s got two-button gameplay, extra-fine rumble support on gamepads, and a ‘very rude GPS’.

Cyanide & Happiness – Freakpocalypse
