Game news 6 indie games of the week not to miss (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch)

You’re starting to get used to it: every week, many video games (indie or not, for that matter) are released on different platforms, whether on PC, Switch, Xbox or PlayStation. Our mission at JV – is to make sure you find yourself there! So to start each week, here is your choice of titles, from July 25 to 31, 2022. There are a few options.

Bear and Breakfast

Why not start a completely relaxing game? In Bear and Breakfast, you are a bear who does his best to take care of a “bed and breakfast” (homestay accommodation that includes one night and one breakfast). You have to keep your hands to the feet so as not to scare your guests! In this title created by Gummy Cat, the first step is repair an abandoned cabin with care. Everything should go there: bathroom, living room, and of course the bedrooms. According to the Steam page, it can reach “dozens”. For all this you need to choose furniture and decoration, with an interface that seems complete. But that’s not all. Bear and Breakfast describes itself as a management and “adventure” game with a secret hiding deep in the forest. Intriguing.

Captain Velvet Meteor

After the jungle, our selection will take you to another dimension with Captain Velvet Meteor, which will be released soon on Nintendo Switch! This is an adventure game | strategy in which Damien, a young man refused his move to Japan, turn his imagination into a superhero, Captain Velvet Meteor. And as if that wasn’t enough, he even created an entire universe where his fears came to life. The title from the Momo-pi studio thus offers an adventure in two stages: the true reality, where you have the opportunity to chat with your family; and fiction, which will call all your strategies to defeat many enemies. On Nintendo’s site, there is even mention of “infiltration, puzzles” phases to eliminate evil. All in all, we can imagine a complete experience of battles, rich narration.

Amazing Horticulture

This time we enter the strange parenthesis of this selection, which has Amazing Horticulture, a puzzle game described as “occult”. More specifically, it is a puzzle game that found its place in a plant shop. “Find and identify new plants, take care of your cat, talk to a sorority, or join a cult,” the Steam page reads in the title. Amazing Horticulture is divided into several phases: managing your customers; exploration around your store; identify plants to understand their power. A search for knowledge that is not easy – if your walk in the forest can be useful to you as well as … deadly (“you can gain powers beyond your wildest dreams or lose your reason”) .An experience that seems separate and more than strong!

Madison

We continue with an awesome game that we talked about in JV and that returns to Nintendo’s hybrid console. Obviously we’re talking about Madison! The initial “pitch” is simple: you are in a haunted house and have to flee from a demonic monster. Our test (14/20) talks about a meeting between Kojima’s terrible PT demo and the Project Zero series. Yes, that’s it! To be more detailed, you play as Luca, who is controlled by an entity named Madison, forced to perform a terrifying ritual. Your path here will be interrupted by the creature itself, of course, but also by portals to another dimension, which can be opened with your camera. Between the puzzles and the terrible appearance, the studio’s Bloody game may not be very original but in the end it has “strong qualities”.

Story of the Times – Pioneers of Olive Town

Are you tired of panic? So here’s your gamer’s light: Story of Times – Pioneers of Olive Town, new installment in the farm management simulation series – formerly known as Harvest Moon. As usual: you should run a farm, with everything that includes plants, animals but also everything related to the preparation of the land itself. “Welcome to Oliville, a peaceful community built by your grandfather and his friends first. Now that you have acquired his farm, you must continue his legacy,” the Steam page tells us. So the important thing is not only your domain, but the city next to it, whose infrastructure you can develop. Finally there is a system for chatting with locals and finding love, Stardew Valley style.

RimWorld Console Edition

To complete this choice, why not go to space? Yes, you are not dreaming, the amazing RimWorld is coming to PlayStation 4 | Xbox. If you haven’t heard of it yet, know that it is a colony simulation after the existence of three survivors, after the crash of a spaceship. On Steam, we read that the title is more of a “story generator” than a strategy game competition. What is important is the drama, the tragedy, the comedy within the colony. It’s simple, after creating your world according to many parameters almost everything is possible. The condition of the colonists will be influenced by the dangers of the environment, but also by ultra-precise things such as the size of the room in which he lives (yes) or which organ is affected. Between bad weather, attacks and surprises, you need to be alert.
