    Five Interesting Indies – Glaciered, RedShot, Emberbane And More

    As soon as I got my PlayStation 5, the first game I played was Stray, and I really enjoyed it for the combination of indie simple exploration in the slums theme and haptic purr-fection. That’s why I keep an eye on potential indies out there that could shake the gaming industry out there. Here are some of the titles below that may do so:

    Flynt Buckler Wakes the Sleepy Castle

    If Cuphead series art style ever been made into a Mario Paper RPG, I would imagine it would be as cartoony close as Flynt Buckler Wakes the Sleepy Castle by Sleepy Castle Studio. As you dive into a world of storybooks brimming with colorful vibes and characters and fight off hoards of wacky enemies in snappy turn-based gameplay. Flynt Buckler Wakes the Sleepy Castle is coming soon on PC.

    Features as shared on Steam:

    • 6 vast storybook worlds brimming with quests, treasures, and secrets
    • A fun, fast-paced battle system that rewards experimentation and strategy
    • A colorful cast of memorable characters that will help (and sometimes hinder) Flynt on his adventure
    • Stories within stories: experience a charming and lively narrative where the rules are constantly changing
    • A jazzy, big-band soundtrack that keeps the energy pumping throughout


    If there was something as mind-blowing, it would be Glaciered by Studio Snowblind which looks to be playing a penguin-like creature ( a species that evolved from birds), soaring underwater and using martial arts skills to dodge and fend off water predators such as large sharks and alligators. Currently, Glaciered has no announced release date yet on PC

    Features and details as shared on Steam:

    Glaciered features real-time, dynamic combat that combines melee and ranged attacks with special abilities. Unleash the power within the Tuai avian and dinosaur bloodlines and harness their ability to control heat and cold.

    Build your character by combining various abilities and passive skills like high-speed swimming that creates tunnels of supercritical water, temporal crystal blades, and more.

    Discover unique ecosystems spread across an ocean Earth 65 million years in the future. Visit grasslands growing from icy skies, swim past schools of thermophilic fish coating the seafloor, and fend off members of the Crocodilia family that have been freed from gravity’s grip and grown to enormous size.

    Glaciered supports NVIDIA RTX features. Experience the far-future Earth in 4K, enhanced by ray-tracing and DLSS, with 8K textures used for the main characters.


    Pixels with anything fast and bullets metroidvania is my favorite kind of genre, in this case, RedShot hits the sweet spot and will be coming really soon to August 2nd, 2022 release on PC as announced by Brian Lynch.
