To help you understand better, here are the indies that are coming out in the next seven days. In the program: action, control and platform!

autumn boys

No doubt you know Fall Guys. This plump and colorful battle royale has been entertaining the gallery on PC and consoles for two years now and is coming to Switch and Xbox very soon. At the same time, Mediatonic developers make the game free. Basically, you don’t have to pay to enjoy it (even if there are optional purchases from the in-game store). The icing on the cake is that Fall Guys is cross-platform and cross-platform, which means you can play with players on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation, as well as track your progress from one console to another. In a word, even more reasons for fun. As a reminder, the Mediatonic software puts sixty players into a TV show where you have to complete challenges like Total Wipeout (or Takeshi’s Castle) to be the last one standing. Dose of good humor.

Anvil Saga (Early Access)

With his good humor and colorful pixel art, Anvil Saga looks like really good management software ! The game plunges us into the Hundred Years’ War, while the world is waiting for many trials. For your part, you have to turn a small forge into a successful business. “But the path leading you to descendants will be littered with pitfalls,” the project’s Steam page reports. Indeed, you will need to manage relationships with a whole bunch of people (bandits, lords, priests, French or British soldiers). The Anvil saga seems to be in two parts: improving and expanding the forge on the one hand, and relationships: accepting a faction’s request can have repercussions. And don’t forget to improve your own team!

Mago

In a completely different genre Magoa colorful platformer which smells good of the 90s and MegaDrive. In this game developed by Dream Potion Games, you play as a wizard “who will have to run, jump, use his trusty magic wand to cross a large kingdom where the unthinkable becomes reality” can be read on Steam. Everything looks classic, but neat enough to arouse noticeable interest: the levels are advertised as diverse (“a prairie-colored teapot, a huge tree guarded by a ferocious centipede, with ancient ruins of a mysterious civilization that rests on the back of a huge bird”) both in terms of graphics, as well as in terms of gameplay, with tons of enemies, bosses, and even a mechanical robot to help you out! In short, one hell of an adventure is clearly not far off. Put on your boots, take a wand!

ElecHead

Want a little no-fuss puzzle? Here’s ElecHead on Nintendo Switch, a few months after its release on PC. In this simple art direction, you play as a robot whose task is to bring light to the world. “It electrifies and activates everything it touches, walls, floors, platforms, switches,” we can find out on the Nintendo project page. “He can also break away and throw his head to reach far places, but be careful, if his head isn’t back on his shoulders after ten seconds, he’ll shut down.” A simple concept, but it seems to lead to well thought out and increasingly difficult puzzles. Note that ElecHead displays the duration from “2 to 3 hours”. Short and catchy?
