game news The 5 indie games of the week to watch
Do you hear the doorbell ring in the halls? She says yes, she has gone back to school. Instead of giving you great deals on the price of school bags, we’re bringing you a small selection of indie games releasing between September 5-9, 2022. Enough to get you through the recovery blues!
Engines roar, tires screech, and sheet metal crumples. In Trail Out, the player participates in a festival where racing, destruction and pilots projected into the air are mixed. nice isn’t it? The software developed by Good Boys takes the form of a racing game with tracks located in different parts of the world where the goal is to survive: thanks to a very precise physics engine, bodies bend and vehicles lose parts in the event of a crash. 40 cars are available for 45 circuits that are promised to be varied, to be discovered through 8 game modes (race, derby, stunts, etc.). Another good news, the title can be played with up to 4 players in split screen. Without a doubt, Trail Out could well be the worthy successor to a certain FlatOut.

nine black lives
You already know the famous saying that there are “two ways to forget about the hassles of life, music and cats”. Nine Noir Lives brings the cats! This game developed by Silvermode Games takes us to Meow Furrington, described by the studio as “the capital of cats, cartels and crime”. This point’n click with the art direction “chat-rmante” asks us to solve a murder by walking around the city, questioning suspects and… licking things. The light tone and the crazy protagonists to meet allow Nine Noir Lives to benefit from a very good capital of sympathy. How much the writing will be worth throughout the spread remains to be seen, and whether the puzzles won’t be too over the top. Be careful though, if the game’s Steam page is well translated into French, the game is not currently translated into our sweet language.

Imagined by So Romantic (Breathedge), Jack Move describes itself as a JRPG that takes place in a cyberpunk universe, all under an art direction nurtured by pixel art. In the skin of Noa, a young hacker immersed in a dangerous universe since the disappearance of her father, the player will participate in quite original turn-based combat. Thanks to his Cyber Neck, the hacker can switch roles in the middle of a confrontation.. Upgrades are available to improve stats or give the heroine additional abilities. The Cyberpunk universe forces him, Noa will have to face mega-corporations, as well as gangsters, secret agents or even cyber-experiments gone wrong. This is promising.

After the racing game, the point’n click and the JRPG, this time we offer you a 3D platform game. Designed by AweKteaM, Tower Princess is a platform game with roguelite elements. The player’s objective is to navigate through a castle full of traps and hostile creatures until kicking the butt of the local dragon, who captures the heirs of the kingdom. With its procedural elements, no part must be identical. Although it is a platform game, Tower Princess also offers weapons to better eliminate the enemies present, be it a sword or a sniper rifle. Although its colorful universe and cute characters are reminiscent of Mario or Crash Bandicoot, the studio warns intrepid gamers that Tower Princess is also heavily inspired by Dark Souls. You have been warned!

Are you also fed up with too many video games being developed in America? Broken Pieces takes place here in Brittany. This adventure thriller, which favors investigation, asks us to play Elise, a woman in her thirties who settles with her fiancé in the small town of Saint-Exil. Unfortunately for her, she finds herself alone in a hostile universe where supernatural threats lurk. Using a camera system following an imaginary rail worthy of Resident Evil: Code Veronica (while integrating a subjective view), and taking place in a place rarely seen in the world of video games, Broken Pieces invites you to explore a disturbing universe full of mysteries. With its puzzles that sometimes play with the weather and its audio cassettes to listen to and find clues, the Freedom Games title looks more than promising.
