Welcome to GTOGG’s April 2021 edition of Promising Indie Game Releases, where we highlight indie and non-mainstream titles that we believe deserve your attention – in other words, “look at all this potentially cool stuff you might’ve missed otherwise”. That would’ve been too long for a title, though.

In any case, let’s get right down to it.

Black Witchcraft

QuattroGear’s explosive action-RPG hopes to crash into your life with a healthy dose of gothic madness – in the game, you take on the role of The Great Witch Ligeia in order to prevent the resurrection of another witch, Lenore, and shed some light on the mysteries surrounding the Usher house. And if that name sounded familiar, it’s no coincidence – the game is indeed partially based on the works of gothic horror writer Edgar Allan Poe.


Forgotten Fields

Frostwood Interactive’s upcoming adventure game focuses on themes of nostalgia and the passage of time and stars a struggling author named Sid who seems to be experiencing writer’s block. One Sunday, however, he is invited to revisit his old childhood home before it gets sold off – he reluctantly agrees, and begins a journey through memories in order to try and reignite his creative spark.


Don't Forget Me

Starring an amnesiac protagonist, Don’t Forget Me is a cyberpunk point & click adventure game with an intriguing twist – in order to solve puzzles and progress the storyline, you’ll have to dive into the minds of various patients and explore their memories to draw out their secrets.


Orbital Bullet

A so-called “360° action-platformer” with roguelike elements, Orbital Bullet seems to prove that going in circles isn’t always a futile undertaking – featuring procedurally generated planets, the game has you traverse completely circular levels to unleash circular doom on your enemies.


Smelter

Smelter starts off with a fairly apocalyptic premise – the Garden of Eden is destroyed, and you – in the role of Eve – set off on a journey to find Adam, your missing other half. Here’s where things get interesting, though: Smelter is an action-platformer/strategy game hybrid that not only lets you rip through your enemies on a variety of side-scrolling levels, but also allows players to build their own bases in a top-down strategy mode.


Clan O'Conall and the Crown of the Stag

A 2D puzzle-platformer game based on Celtic mythology, Clan O'Conall and the Crown of the Stag will let you dive deep into a world of mysteries and folklore – players take on the role of three interchangeable heroes who must save the land from the evil Caoranach, the mother of all demons.


Gastova: The Witches of Arkana

Sporting a crisp and colorful art style, Gastova: The Witches of Arkana was inspired by the popular Mega Man franchise, and as such, keeps things relatively straightforward: in true retro platformer fashion, you’ll venture to 8 different levels, overcome the various obstacles and enemies thrown your way, then defeat a given boss at the end.


And that’s our list for now! Did you discover a new indie game to look forward to? Well, we hope you did. In any case, don’t forget to check back in about a month for our next episode, where we’ll be taking a look at the indie games of May 2021!
