Welcome to GTOGG’s November 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.


Okay, so this is less like a game, and more like a relaxation tool. I mean that as a compliment, of course. Staying true to its name, Unpacking has you unpack your stuff in your new house, so be prepared to dig into those cardboard boxes and find the appropriate shelf for every book, stuffed toy and writing utensil. And while the game is mostly just a whole bunch of clicking while soothing music plays in the background, there’s an almost therapeutic quality to it all.


Sporting some truly wonderful hand-drawn visuals, Tunche keeps things sweet and simple: it’s a charming action-adventure with roguelike elements, allowing you to embark on a grand adventure alone or in co-op with 3 other friends as you tackle zany enemies and bossfights, all for a noble cause – to save the Amazon rainforest.

Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View

I love a good detective mystery as much as the next guy, so it made sense that I’d include this title on our list. Taking place in the 1950s, Conway: Disappearance at Dahlia View is a so-called “observational thriller” that stars Robert Conway, a retired detective who takes it upon himself to investigate the mysterious disappearance of an 8-year-old girl by the name of Charlotte May. By observing your neighbors, solving puzzles and piecing together clues, it’s up to you to slowly but surely inch closer and closer to the truth.


A sequel to SYNTHETIK: Legion Rising, SYNTHETIK 2 will offer the same relentless roguelike cyber-action you came to love in the original, except now it looks quite a bit prettier. But the rest will most likely be a similarly thrilling experience, with tough-as-nails bosses, randomized challenges and a whole arsenal of guns that always seem to get jammed at the worst possible time. Yeah, we’ve probably all been there.

To The Rescue!

Ever wanted to run your own dog shelter? Well, now you can. In To The Rescue, you’ll have to take the needs of dozens of puppies (as well as potential adopters) into consideration during your mission to help your furry friends find their forever homes. What’s more, the game also supports the real-life rescue of dogs in need, as 20% of the developers’ earnings will be donated to the Petfinder Foundation charity.

Let’s Build a Zoo

And while we’re on the topic of animals, let’s kick things up a notch. How about building and running a whole zoo? Let’s Build a Zoo will let you do just that – breed animals, hire the necessary staff and dabble in DNA splicing to potentially create over 300,000 different kinds of creatures. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see what a giraffe with an elephant’s head would look like?

Bright Memory: Infinite

A fast-paced FPS taking place in the year 2036, Bright Memory: Infinite stars Sheila, a highly skilled agent sent on a mission to investigate mysterious anomalies that result in the appearance of mythological creatures and futuristic soldiers. The game promises lightning-fast action featuring a varied arsenal of weapons, from customizable guns to deadly blades capable of not only slicing your foes in half, but also repelling incoming bullets.

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 December 2021!
