Dev: Two Tribes

Rive featured in our September Hotlist and is a game we are very excited to play. This action packed platform shooter throws players into the thick of it, linking both puzzle elements with frantic fast-paced action. Players are able to shoot 360 degrees around your robot, which, by the looks of the trailer is going to be a much needed mechanic.

Rive offers players a single player experience, either through competitive leaderboards or a progressive level based mission story. Rive will be firing it’s self onto PS4 and PC on the 13th September.

 

Don’t Starve Together (PS4)

Dev: Klei Entertainment

Don’t Starve Together is a standalone expansion of the unique wilderness survival game, Don’t Starve. The expansion introduces new characters, seasons, creatures and a hamper-full of new challenges. Players must explore the stage world, a world full of mysterious creatures and surprises. By gathering resources on your journey you’ll be able to craft items and structures to help you survive.

Feeling brave? Take your chances online with other strangers; will you find companions to help your survival or fight the elements alone? Whatever you do, Don’t Starve!

Slain: Back From Hell (PS4, Xbox One)
Dev: Wolf Brew Games

feature title

Slain: Back From Hell is another game we cannot wait to get our hands on, also featuring in our September Hotlist. You venture through an iconic pixelated gothic world, gruesomely putting beast to the sword. Playing as Bathoryn, a lycanthropic hero of the Gothic world, who is on a quest to destroy seven great towers and slaying the deadly overlords within them.

Grotesque beasts aren’t Bathoryn’s only challenge, to successfully make his way to the top (or bottom) of each tower he must work past a variety of puzzles. Slain: Back From Hell’s fast gameplay, iconic setting and pulse raising heavy metal sound track make it a must play for any hack and slash fan.

The Witness (Xbox One)
Dev: Jonathan Blow & Thelka Inc

The witness released earlier this year on both PC and PS4, receiving a lot of praise for it’s accomplishments. The game takes place on a strange but beautiful island full of puzzles, some very challenging puzzles. Offering an engaging single-player experience, with some eye-catching locations to explore and a mere 500 puzzles to solve.

 

 

Lewis started Indie-Credible in the summer of 2016 after struggling to find a website that justifiably covered indie games. Although he can't deny his love for some AAA games (especially the Final Fantasy series) his true love lies in the indies - people say he plays too many indie games, but we all know that's not possible.
