Welcome to GTOGG’s August 2022 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.

Thymesia

A punishing Soulslike taking place in a grim, dark fantasy world, Thymesia has you embark on a perilous quest as Corvus, a lone warrior capable of wielding terrifying plague weapons harnessed from defeated enemies. The fate of the Kingdom of Hermes hangs in the balance, and only by reclaiming his scattered memories can Corvus shed some light on the truth – fight deadly, mutated monstrosities that take no prisoners, upgrade your skills and plague weapons, and utilize your raven form in order to turn the tide and emerge victorious.


The Mortuary Assistant

If working with dead bodies wasn’t quite unsettling enough on its own, The Mortuary Assistant takes things a step further – you’re not just here to perform a job that many would find intimidating, but you’re also forced to deal with actual demons. Yup. Developer DarkStone Digital’s horror-adventure puts you in the role of the titular mortuary assistant, who ends up getting called in one night for some routine embalmings, only for things to take a supernatural turn… and soon enough, you’re finding yourself performing occult rituals and keeping demonic forces at bay. Just another day at work, eh?


REDSHOT

REDSHOT puts you in the shoes of Jack "Goose" Redshot, a man who ends up crash landing and getting stranded on a peculiar fringe planet, and must do everything in his power to save it from invaders. Set in a massive, non-linear world, REDSHOT will allow you to explore the land to your heart’s content in any order you see fit while wielding deadly weapons – and the even deadlier power of bullet time – in order to fight numerous enemies and bosses while looking like an absolute superhero. So, the question on the game’s Steam page becomes quite apt indeed: can you save the royal city from total destruction? Can you do it with style?


Two Point Campus

Created by the team behind Two Point Hospital (which served as a spiritual successor to Theme Hospital), Two Point Campus will let you run your very own university, allowing you to place down every brick, plan every room and hire every member of staff – but don’t worry, there’s a twist. The game does absolutely put a wacky spin on its management sim roots: you’ll get to start up a Knight School for your students’ chivalric needs, bake colossal pies to prepare monstrous meals, organize concerts and generally do all kinds of zany things, much like you did back in Two Point Hospital.,


A Tale of Paper: Refolded

A Tale of Paper has you step into the role of Line, a paper-made hero capable of transforming into a variety of origami shapes in order to solve puzzles and advance through a world teeming with dangers. Soar through the air as a folded plane or jump high as a paper frog as you fulfill your creator’s dreams, then explore three prequel chapters starring an entirely different protagonist with different paper abilities.


Midnight Fight Express

Wanna become the guy even John Wick is scared of? Well, Midnight Fight Express offers something similar: you’re Babyface, a former veteran of the criminal underworld, who ends up being drawn back into the life of fighting crime lords and petty thugs. Why? Because, according to an AI drone, a citywide criminal takeover is about to happen, and only you can stop it – unleash a variety of mind-bendingly acrobatic moves as you shoot, kick, punch and use absolutely everything around you in order to take down an overwhelming amount of baddies.


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 September 2022!
