E3 is only two weeks away and we are preparing ourselves for some bombs to drop from sereval developers, maybe even a shadow drop during the event! Before we get to that however, we have these fine indie games we can get our hands on this week.
Brothers: A tale of Two Sons
You know him from the stellar co-op game ‘A Way Out’ last year, developer Josef Fares first developer ‘Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons’ back in 2013 together with Starbreeze. This game won serveral awards and puts you in the shoes of two brothers that you controlled individually using one stick for each character.
Now publisher 505 Games brings this masterpiece over to the Switch and this is the first version that features full fletched co-op for two players. Together you and your younger brother need to get their father to a doctor in a far away village as he has fallen ill.
Little Friends: Dogs and Cats
Not sure if you can count this as indie considering the price tag, but Little Friends: Dogs and Cats is the perfect game for people waiting for a new Nintendogs installment from the big N. Publisher Sold Out is bringing this game digitally and physically this week for a price of $/€49.99.
Play with up to 3 pets at once and own up to 12. Get to know their personalities and feed them their favorite food. Play with your pet using their favorite new toy or take them out for walks and compete in the flying disc tournament, using the Joy-Con™ motion controls or Nintendo Switch touch screen. Each pet has its own personality, behavior and looks. Look after your pet to develop a bond and grow your friendship. Dress them up in more than 600 stylish accessories to make them look their best. Care for your new furry friend to develop a long-lasting friendship.
The last few years more and more mashups of movies and games arrive that put all the famous characters in one game. Nicalis has done the same in Crystal Crisis, a game that puts Isaac from Binding of Isaac, Quote and Curly Brace from Cave Story and even Atom from Astro Boy
Crystal Crisis is a cute and chaotic new color-matching combat game for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Crystal Crisis is presented like a one-on-one fighting game, but instead of pressing buttons to kick and punch, players arrange falling crystals into matching colors to clear them from the screen and inflict damage on their opponents. It’s the ultimate puzzle battle throw down!
Other notable releases this week are the first-person horror game Among The Sleep Enhanced Edition from Soedesco and Kotodama: The 7 Mysteries of Fujisawa by PQube.
