This Week in Games: Apr 1 – 6

Explore shadowy islands in a hand-drawn platformer, punch your way through a VR boxing league, inherit a quirky spaceship for a cozy cosmic journey, deliver noodles in a dystopian future, build and strategize in a Viking-inspired side-scroller, and talk your way out of a cult in a narrative-heavy adventure – it is a busy week of indie developed titles this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Diving into Saviorless is like stumbling into a hidden, dark alley market where every shadow whispers tales of intrigue and danger. It’s a journey with Antar through the Smiling Islands, a journey sketched in the deep, dark lines of a world that’s as beautifully hand-drawn as it is menacing, promising an adventure as gripping as the plot of your favorite thriller. Set your calendars—this shadow-drenched platformer hits PlayStation first Monday, Epic Games Store on Tuesday, and for the Switch +  Steam on Wednesday.

Dragging after a long weekend and itching for a jolt? Mutant Boxing League VR on Steam VR (Quest + Valve Index too) is here to get your blood pumping. It’s sleek, it’s punchy, and it’s got that sweet gameplay flow that keeps you on your toes. It’s also the first game we have seen to make mention of using AI to generate assets which in this case was some background elements that were further edited. If you want to check it out find it on Steam on Wednesday.

Launching this Wednesday on Steam, Starwisp Hyperdrive offers a cozy yet quirky space RPG adventure aboard a haunted, fixer-upper spaceship you’ve just inherited. It’s a journey filled with alien gardening, asteroid mining, and bonding with robots. Think, cozy adventure but you are on a spaceship (and have a cat). It is also from the same Australian developer behind the point and click game about finding your pants ‘Pants Quest’.

Curious about the life of an UberEATS rider in a not-so-far-off dystopian future? Death Noodle Delivery, dropping this Friday on Steam, has got all the answers and then some. Zip through the neon-lit streets delivering noodles or hang around your apartment gathering the lowdown on your neighbors, or dive into cyberspace to tweak your scooter into a lean, mean, delivery machine.

Sons of Valhalla takes you to the age of Vikings for base-building and pixel-art brilliance. Created by two brothers with a passion for Viking tales and pixel perfection, this one does set it self apart from others in the genre with it being a side-scrolling which is pretty uncommon in base-building type game. Check it out on Steam on Saturday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to Sacrifice For Sale on Steam this Wednesday, a unique spin on story-driven, dialogue-heavy games. Think of it as a dark twist on date simulators, where you’re the potential sacrifice in a cult’s sinister ceremony. Using your wit as your main weapon, your mission is to either escape or dismantle the cult from the inside out.
