Top 10 Indie Games Of April 2016
What’s going on the lovers of Indie games? Welcome to the season of lists, it’s now April, 2016 and the month holds plenty of gaming glory but not all of that will come from major marquee triple-a titles like Mirror’s edge to or the new legend of Zelda, in fact a lot of this year’s heat and charm will arise from smaller studios, Indie games more bite sized projects that hide plenty of awesomeness. Btw we are Indie game developer, you can find our portfolio in this website These are my top 10 Indie games of April’ 16 :
Days of War
We start off with the game already funded in the form of ‘Days of War’. The pitch here is to revive the WW2 fps genre. Regular viewers may realize that sounds incredibly similar to ‘Battalion 1944’, it is much prettier and got more funding, but overall we feel more convinced by ‘Days of War’. They’ve made it clear the focus is on skill and realism. There won’t be any kill streak or 360 no scope nonsense. There are soldier classes such as rifleman, sniper and rocket, and built-in support for modding. On a side note, you’ve got to love how Russian, British and French forces are all stretch goals, but the Americans, who only fought in the war for two and a half years, are going to be included in the game no matter what. God bless America.
Hyper Light Drifter
It is on PC right now, the consoles releases will be coming later. Its dungeons and upgrades are all very classic Zelda. The wordless story is powerful without being overbearing. The post-apocalyptic world is large, beautiful and full of curiosity. The game’s heart is its combat. It is hard, some would even say unsympathetic with its lack of instruction. But it respects the player’s intelligence and gives you its worlds and mysteries for all your private exploration and understanding. Fights demand your attention and have a great rhythm, the character movement is super slick, and it always feels boss to be wielding a sword made of light. It’s a special game.
Hyper Light Drifter
Deadbolt : Risk of Rain creators deliver again with merciless assassination game DEADBOLT. It plays a bit like Hot Miami, but more like Not a Hero, and even more like gunpoint. Playing as the Grim Reaper you must take out rooms with clinical and precise stealth. There is no room for error and zero chance of escape. By turning into smoke you can travel through vents, easily the coolest part of the game. Developer Hopoo Games have a proven ability to take 2D art to a new level. Deadbolt is a chilling, challenging and overall cracking stealth game.
Hyper Light Drifter
Out There Somewhere : It is and affordable and clever little retro package. What makes this platformer cum puzzler nifty is its teleport gun, which allows you to shoot a bullet and then travel to where it goes Much like the Doctor’s sonic screwdriver it’s the tool for every job, whether that be zapping through a waterfall of lava or jumping a gap. Things get a lot more crazy and creative than that, but we’ll leave them as surprises for you to uncover.
It shows the potential of narrative in roguelikes, but could have stayed in early access a bit longer. The game is full of interesting characters, lore, and amazing abilities like talking to animals. But to really uncover that stuff you need to invest time. It is still getting updated and the PS4 release in the works .
ADR1FT : It is a breath-taking lonely experience in space hindered by some rude interruptions. The game is a walking simulator, or in this case, more of a floating in space stimulator. Its kind of like playing Gravity or The Martian instead of watching them. That’s pretty cool The visuals are amazing, constantly stimulating your experience and adding an incredible level of reality. We can only assume this would be amplified in the VR version. From the very start you’re in trouble, the space station is destroyed, you have no memory of what transpired, and your oxygen levels are waning. The action only rises from there, making survival an engrossing and emotional task. It really all sounds great.
Quest of Souls : Is it the 1990s again? Well the re-emergence of denim jackets and ‘Quest of Souls’ will certainly have you asking that question. From its gameplay to its style, this throwback is all about recreating the shoot ‘em up RPG’s of 90’s. From the initiated, it’s basically a twin stick shooter with heaps of upgrades and abilities and items. What we really love about ‘Quest of Souls’ is its zany personality. Take for instance its three playable characters: a corgi dragonslayer, a lizardman samurai and a lich playing for the good side. It should also be perfect for playing with others, with co-op for up to 3 and competitive multiplayer.
LUX : By the time you read this, LUX’s campaign will be over, and, barring a miracle, it won’t have hit its funding goal. We’re not sure if Chimera Co. will persevere with the project. But considering, they got a graphic novel for the game funded, and that LUX has some neat ideas. Combining survival with MMO, LUX looks like an extra surreal, Don’t starve with way more players. That’s something we want to play.
Fear Effect Sedna
The critically acclaimed Playstation series ‘Fear Effect’ has returned with ‘Fear Effect Sedna’. About a year ago, Square Enix made some of its old and dormant IPs available to other developers. Sushee Games have taken full advantage of this and, to the delight of many gamers, decided to reboot Fear Effect. The original ‘Fear Effects’ were set in futuristic Hong Kong Underworld and were famous for their cut scenes that were cutting edge at the time. Sedna while keeping the setting and bringing back the original cast of characters, but the gameplay are different. Instead, of a variety of camera angles, things are fixed to an isometric perspective and cut scenes don’t seem to be embedded within the gameplay as the original.
Fear Effect Sedna
The Wild Eight : Arguably a bizarre cross between Eight Below and the Hateful Eight, ‘The Wild Eight’ is an Eerie survival adventure designed for co-op. A terrifying plane crash in the snowy wilderness of Alaska leaves 8 survivors to fend off the conditions, hunger, and wild predators. Co-op really unlocks the magic of the game because it brings the dynamics of teamwork. Will you pull together to find out, or will someone betray another survivor for cannibalistic snack? The worlds are procedurally generated, and there are different endings dependent on what side quests you do. We haven’t seen a lot of pile-driven games with a focus on small co-op teams, so we think ‘The Wild Eight’ is a fill a hole in the markets .
