With the annual EGX show, the UK’s largest gaming event of the year only a few days away, here’s our pick of the the top 5 best looking indie games of EGX to watch out for. If you’re going, why not drop us a note in the comments section below to let us know which ones you’re keen to see and play? Likewise, if we’ve missed anything out, be sure to let us know.
Untitled Goose Game
The premise of Untitled Goose Game is simple: “it’s a lovely morning in the village and you are a horrible goose.” Players control a goose padding around a farm, looking for trouble while trying to avoid the farmer. It’s part-sandbox, part-stealth game and we so hope they keep this rather marvelous name for the full launch.
2. Disco Elysium
Disco Elysium a groundbreaking blend of hardboiled cop show and isometric RPG. Solve a massive, open ended case in a unique urban fantasy setting. Kick in doors, interrogate suspects, or just get lost exploring the gorgeously rendered city of Revachol.
Growbot is a point-and-click adventure about a robot saving her home from a dark crystalline force. Set upon a biopunk space station bursting with fantastic plants and aliens. Expected out at some point next year, this single player game is headed to the PC, Mac, Linux and iOS.
4. Unbound: Worlds Apart
Unbound: Worlds Apart is a beautiful looking 2D platformer where you control a character called Soli. Expected to launch in May 2019 on the PC, you move throughout the game by creating portals with which to travel to other worlds.
5. Mable and the Wood
Mable and the Wood, is a fantasy adventure platformer with more than a hint of menace. Having been brought back to life by a cult, you play as a girl tasked with killing giant beasts to save the world. Said to contain gameplay mechanics to see you change your shape into the things you kill along the way, a non-linear platforming world and a bizarre story line. Mable and the Wood will launch on PC, Mac and Linux sometime later this year.
