Def Disco Elysium. It caught my attention back when it was named No Truce with the Furries Furies.

I saw Chernobylite on the list and got excited, but it's just early access?

I'll be waiting for The Outer Worlds to be released on GoG/Steam.

I know but I still dig it a lot and apparently it will be fully playable at release, their early access plan is more about expanding on the gameworld (still probably better to wait for the full release). It looks like RE7 set in lovingly recreated open-world Chernobyl (they're actually 3D scanning existing locations) and that sounds interesting as hell.

I think they're also recording ambient sound in there.

It's still in EA and only got one level out but Gensokyo Night Festival is a pretty interesting sidescroller/shooter with some bizarre mechanics and a cool art style.

Also as a Touhou game it has bitching music.

Thanks a bunch!

So my Idle/Incremental/Clicker game NGU IDLE launched at the start of this month:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1147690/NGU_IDLE/

If you've ever played a game like Cookie Clicker or Clicker Heroes or Adventure Capitalist, it's one of those but better because a goon made it. It's a mix of a Resource Management and RPG game where you can close it overnight or go to work, and come back and you've gained all sorts of stats and things and makes you feel like you accomplished something in your life. It's chock-full of crude jokes and puns and recently some cool art another goon (Musluk) made.

This .gif sums up the tone of NGU IDLE:



And now my shill has ended.

Someone's made a pretty in-depth review for it too:

WORLD OF HORROR features branching stories with five playable characters to brave the chaos, each with their own story and a different perspective on the events that unfold. Unravel puzzles and mysteries through spells that sacrifice sanity. Uncover disturbing and shocking clues. Diligently search every nook and cranny, scouring for helpful items that may come in handy in another twisted encounter.

Experience the quiet horror of this love letter to the works of Junji Ito and H.P. Lovecraft. WORLD OF HORROR is free of typical jump scares, relying solely on its unnerving environments and amorphous terrors to create a gnawing sense of dread. Complimented by haunting chiptunes and a 1-bit art style with a variety of available palettes, WORLD OF HORROR presents a series of frightening and unsettling accounts that linger well after stepping away.

This reminds me of an old (maybe PC shareware) game where you walk around in Edo(?) period Japan and try not to get eaten by demons. It was creepy and weird.
Similar UI, but in color.

I tried looking for it but with no success.

The only recent-ish games that are really similar to Fallout are:

ATOM RPG - What if Fallout but in USSR.
whoops apparently this released Dec 2018. But they're still updating it, and recently they updated the engine to Unity 2019.2.

Encased - Kickstared game, now in Early-Access.

Neither are sprite looking, but the first one is almost clone-like.

Twilkitri posted:

There's a few screenshots on Death Trash that seem to match what you're describing here, but I don't know about it having the Fallout dialogue window. It's also not out yet.

On the upside - it looks pretty neat.

Dreamscaper is a ARPG/Rougelite game that released a demo a couple days ago. Its got a lot in common with Hades gameplay wise. I'm really enjoying the setting and style of the game, its unlike anything I've played before. It's going into early access this summer so don't expect it to be as complete/feature rich as Hades but what is released so far is very promising. The story is basically you literally fighting your depression/demons in your lucid dreams and one of the bosses of the levels is named Isolation.

The prologue (demo) is apparently ~5 hours long. Will definitely check it out.

I'm not a fan of early-access, but I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

ITTA got released a couple of hours ago, and it looks pretty neat.

It's an indie action/adventure/bullet-hell with an art style (very) similar to Hyper Light Drifter.

quote:

Test your limits in ITTA, a bullet-hell, boss-rush style adventure. Armed with her father’s revolver and guided by a strange ghostly cat, a displaced girl must battle her way through impossible trials in search of answers… and peace.

It's available on PC and Switch, and maybe some other platforms.

Steam, GOG, Switch

Carrion got released today. The game lets you play a gross fleshy tentacle monster. And you can eat people.

quote:

CARRION is a reverse horror game in which you assume the role of an amorphous creature of unknown origin. Stalk and consume those that imprisoned you to spread fear and panic throughout the facility. Grow and evolve as you tear down this prison and acquire more and more devastating abilities on the path to retribution.

I played the demo. It's pretty creepy/gross. Post impressions if you've bought it.

Beyond a Steel Sky came out today. I've been thinking about giving it a shot just because it's cyberpunk, but apparently it has quite a pedigree. It's the sequel to a 90s point and click adventure game called Beneath a Steel Sky, and it's made by guy that did all the Broken Sword games.

Huh. That's a surprise.
I strongly recommend to anyone who likes Point&Click games to play the original Beneath a Steel Sky. It's really good, and it's FREE on GOG.

Real mystery-solving.
No hidden plot twists, no QTEs, no random puzzles or mini-games, just you and the information. In all 3 cases, don’t just act like a detective -- BE a detective. Finding the murderer will require true understanding of the case, not just following the story.

Sounds like it might be interesting.
