    Upcoming Games To Look Forward To This May 2022!

    I’ve just realized that the month of May had arrived suddenly in the blink of an eye just like the Moon Knight series and with it, tantalizing game titles. Tantalizing in the sense that the games we thought would be most interesting releasing this time around and hopefully meet or exceed our expectations. This month is a turn of the tide month as most of these titles are indies by many independent developers — a moment that is unintentionally considered the “indie’s month.” There are quite a number of interesting mixes of adventure, 2D side-scrolling action, and more. Here are the games we can’t wait to sink our teeth into in May 2022.


    Loot River

    When puzzle gameplay elements of Tetris meet with a roguelike action-oriented dungeon-crawling, it is definitely an interesting concept and I, for one, am interested to see how the end product turns out as Loot River arrives on PC and Xbox, via Xbox Game Pass, on May 3rd as announced by developer straka.studio.
