Welcome to GTOGG’s February 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.

Curse of the Dead Gods

A dark fantasy roguelike with a twist, Curse of the Dead Gods takes you to a mystical temple that holds the promise of untold riches and unspeakable powers, as well as a chance to claim them for yourself – but there’s a catch. The temple itself is teeming with traps, deadly monsters and a corruption that continues to seep into your very bones the deeper you go.


A follow-up to 20XX, 30XX is a roguelike action-platformer inspired in part by Mega Man X – run, jump, scale walls and shoot your enemies across all sorts of procedurally generated levels, or dive into Mega Mode with static levels and no permadeath for a more traditional experience.

The Last Shot

An adventure game about the little engineer that could, The Last Shot invites you to a dreary dieselpunk world where militaristic cities fight each other without end – and where you, a lone mechanical engineer, must go on a perilous journey to save your home by… using your engineering skills, of course.

Rustler (Grand Theft Horse)

Ever wanted to play a classic GTA game in a medieval setting? Yeah? Well, good news – Rustler is exactly that. As a common thug, you’re set loose in an open-world setting in order to engage in, well… all sorts of thug-like activities. Steal horses, rob people, get into fights or do much, much worse – this historically inaccurate medieval world is your oyster.

Good Night, Knight

A so-called „sneak & slash” game, Good Night Knight offers challenging combat, tons of loot, procedurally generated dungeons, and fully implemented stealth mechanics that allow you to take the quieter approach, should you need it. A silent knight is a deadly knight, I guess?

Wing of Darkness

Wing of Darkness tells the story of two so-called Fräulein – young girls with wings on their backs who soar through the skies. Interestingly enough, the game is divided into two notably different parts: one focuses solely on fast-paced third-person aerial combat, while the other shifts its focus to the narrative and the characters, offering cutscenes that further flesh out the two female protagonists.

Silence Channel

Silence Channel, a first-person horror adventure from developer Lexip Games, stars an investigative reporter tasked with looking into some strange occurrences… and indeed, as one would expect, things do take a sinister turn at one point. Your new job? Survive.
