Welcome to GTOGG’s November 2023 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.

The Last Faith

Taking place in a grim, gothic world of towering cathedral spires and otherworldly creatures, The Last Faith is a grim metroidvania/soulslike that will have you embark on a perilous journey as an amnesiac warrior called Eryk, who must find a way to save his own mind from deteriorating before it’s too late – a goal that will see him cross paths with all kinds of powerful entities.

Small Saga

Small Saga is a highly interesting take on the classic turn-based RPG: taking place beneath the streets of London, within a medieval kingdom of critters called Rodentia, the game will chronicle the small – yet still epic – journey of Verm, a rat whose tail was stolen by the Yellow God of Death, prompting him to go on a quest of vengeance to get it back. Advertised as a game that ditches needless grinding and focuses on telling a rich story while giving players fun and memorable turn-based battles, Small Saga is certainly one November release to keep a beady eye on.

The Talos Principle 2

Much like its predecessor, The Talos Principle 2 is set to combine mind-bending puzzles with a deep, philosophical narrative about the nature of life and civilization – taking place in a future where humanity is extinct, yet their culture is preserved in a city ruled by robots, the game will have you discover, and potentially answer, countless tough questions about the past, the future and the cosmos itself.


A cute, pixel art action-adventure with adorable protagonists? What’s not to like? TEVI is described as a bullet hell metroidvania, and will have you take control of its bunny-eared heroine as she hacks and slashes across a wide variety of locales, fights tough boss battles and uncovers dazzling secrets. Oh, and you have a giant wrench that you can use to smack enemies across the face from up close. You know, because why not.


What happens when an adventurer is forced to become a restaurateur? Well, what happens is that she goes out to the wilderness and beats up monsters with a spatula. Indeed, when young Pom returns to her hometown of Paell, only to discover that her parents’ restaurant had to close down, she takes matters into her own hands and resolves to make the place thrive. Which means that you need to venture outside the city, defeat monsters and bring back rare and delectable ingredients to cook up the very best meals the realm has ever tasted.

This Bed We Made

Do you get a kick out of looking through empty rooms, sifting through other people’s belongings in the hopes of discovering their deepest, darkest secrets? In video games, I mean. Not in real life. If so, This Bed We Made is a game you might wish to keep an eye on – in it, you take on the role of a maid inside a hotel during the 1950s, and... well, you look through people’s things to discover what secrets they’re hiding, and how they’re connected.

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 2023!
