Game News The indie games of the week not to be missed
As every week, we offer you an overview of the releases to come over the next seven days on the side of the indie sphere.
20 Minutes Till Dawn
Slated for an early access release this week, 20 Minutes Till Dawn is a Lovecraftian rogue-lite brought to you by flanne. The setting is set in the middle of the night as you have to deal with hordes of nightmarish creatures. The goal is to survive for twenty minutes. The player has at his fingertips up to 50 upgrades dedicated to creating different builds for a whole series of characters (including ninja or fire magician) and weapons with unique powers. The game will remain in early access for a handful of months after which it will offer more available upgrades and more types of enemies and bosses.
A rogue-lite shooter, Madshot will ask you to keep up the pace at a breakneck pace as you progress through the bowels of Cthulhu. “In search of eternal life, you have invited forces beyond your understanding. You must invade this dastardly, gooey, loathsome mass known as Chthulhu“. At your disposal: a slew of improvements to face ever more robust monsters and bosses. The game features procedural generation and hand-crafted levels. The world will therefore change as you progress. The game is will initially be available in early access.
The Cycle: Frontier
A free-to-play FPS developed and published by Yager, The Cycle: Frontier takes place in a very hostile alien world. Players must compete against other players to grab the resources of the planet Fortuna III, ravaged by a deadly storm. But beware, only players who will be able to return safe and sound will be able to keep their wealth. Along with other loot seekers, you might come across a few bloodthirsty beasts that could get you in big trouble
Please Fix The Road
A minimalist and peaceful puzzle game, Please Fix The Road naturally asks you to fix roads. “Your road repair doesn’t have to look good, it just has to do the job!” assures the developer Ariel Jurkowski. At each level, the player is entitled to a predetermined set of tools to move all elements: cars, boats, animals or trains. A slew of actions are possible: “create, destroy, rotate, copy, swap, raise, lower, push or move different segments of roads, rivers, paths or railways.“
