From a former member of the Playdead dev team, I've also got half an eye on Somerville. I'm liking the vibe of it - it reminds me of Another World from the early 90s!

Wow that looks incredible

There's a whole world of fun indie games out there. Just doing my bit to get some more eyes on a few that I like the look of!

Citizen Sleeper is out tomorrow and early reviews are looking pretty good. The developer's previous game In Other Waters was an amazing experience, and this is looking promising. The game is set in a ruined space station, while you're a "sleeper" - digistised human consciousness in a human body - which gives me Blade Runner vibes to be honest.

Source of Madness released today (although it did have an early access release on Steam) and the most eye-catching review for me was "If Bloodborne and Dead Cells had a love child..."

Those are both pretty good games, so it certainly has my attention!

Swimbo… I mean Silt has been released. Reviews are generally positive and I’ll likely be picking it up in a future steam sale.

A new point & click adventure released this week which currently has a 100% rating from 19 reviews. I'm loving the old school pixel art style, but they've done some pretty impressive things with the lighting.

It has some definite horror themes with the opening scene being a bit on the gruesome side (as far as pixel art can get gruesome), but is well worth a play from what I've seen so far.

i do like that simplistic graphic style, it makes a nice change from the AAA titles, sometimes its nice to play a niche title rather than a big budget one.

That’s what was so refreshing about Thimbleweed Park for me, it reminded me of a simpler time…

funny that for some gamers, the most top end AAA game does not always hold the same interest as it once did but rather a simpler title seems better, not sure if certain generations had imagination and therefore are perfectly happy with a more retro game etc, interesting thought.

Has been on my wishlist for more than 2 years. I like the look of it, but haven't quite pulled the trigger just yet!

Some old, but free ones to try: battle for Wesnoth and MegaGlest. First is turn based 2d strategy, the second is real time 3d. Simple graphics but what I love is the open-source fan support that's let them grow into decent games, with loads of extra content.
