    December indie game releases 2020

    Every month I feel a bit like a broken record because I mention how impressive the line up of new releases is, and December is no different. December’s indie game releases are looking excellent, with so many titles it was hard to decide which to feature in this post. I’ve been able to narrow it down to a superb selection. Get prepared for December 3rd!

    November indie game releases 2020

    Is it just me, or has 2020 been a great year for indie game releases? There have been so many gems that choosing just a few for monthly release posts has been difficult each time.

After an argument over a love letter, everyone grumpily goes to sleep. Suddenly, Saki is jolted awake from a nightmare, and all of her friends have disappeared. Saki wanders out into the darkness to try and find them but comes up to an abandoned train. She then makes the obviously bad choice of getting onto that train to look for her friends. The creep factor increases on the train as items appear and disappear, and after the earth shakes Saki is thrown…
