Indie games from October 2019: 5 titles you have to check out
Last month in indie games, we solved mysteries, we solved puzzles, we solved hell, and we even solved problems with a big guns and axes.
We already knew going in that October was going to be a strong month for indie releases, and we still came out surprised. From shooting and RPGs to puzzles and narrative adventures, October had a treat for you regardless of what kind of game you enjoy. Have a look at the best that the month had to offer in our round-up below.
Afterparty (PC, PS4, Xbox One)
Afterparty is from the devs of Oxenfree, and it involves playing as a pair of best buddies who are stuck in hell after dying. They can get out – if they outdrink Satan himself. Like Oxenfree, the game plays as a dialogue-heavy narrative adventure.
Manifold Garden (PC, Mac, iOS)
Manifold Garden is a very trippy puzzle game from William Chyr, and it makes use of reimagined physics and impossible geometry. The result is a first-person exploration game that will probably make you dizzy (in a good way).
Indivisible (PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One)
Indivisible is an action RPG in the style of Valkyrie Profile games, and it comes from the team that developed Skullgirls. The story follows a rebellious girl named Ajna, who discovers the power to absorb incarnations and use their assistance during battle.
Disco Elysium (PC)
Disco Elysium (formerly known as No Truce With The Furies) is a narrative-heavy RPG set in a weird, fantastic world. You play as a police detective, and in your murder investigation, you will have a very wide spread of choices to make.
Valfaris (PC, Switch)
Valfaris is a heavy metal-themed action game set in a brutal, grotesque space fortress. It’s developed by the creators of Slain: Back From Hell, and it pairs its lush pixel visuals with a thoroughly metal soundtrack.
