While it delivers a strong start, Call of Cthulhu starts to stumble and fall near the end, demonstrating a lack of polish and poor localization.

Good graphics can’t redeem some of the poorer design choices in SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption. A very, very rough take on the Soulsborne formula, SINNER is really only for diehard fans that are truly desperate for something new to cut their teeth on.

Despite some frame-rate stutters, slight audio-visual desyncs, and the occasional bad texture rendering, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is eerie, challenging, thoughtful, compelling, and downright fun.

Breathtakingly beautiful, but short and without much variety, means that you’ll probably really have to love side-scrollers to fully enjoy Planet Alpha.

The King’s Bird is a momentum-based platformer with smoothly vibrant visuals and a story that’s as indecipherable as the vague objects in its backgrounds.

We Happy Few is far from flawless, but ultimately makes up for it with its fascinating story of a comically-dark dystopia.

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and indie developer Shifting Tides reveal The Sojourn, a first-person puzzle game in which you traverse parallel worlds of light and darkness in search of answers to the nature of reality. The Sojourn is slated for release in 2019.

Eden Rising: Supremacy is an unusual concoction of open-world action, tower defense, and resource collection that makes it innovative and unique, although it’s still in its infancy.

Kickstarter darling Agony is a fascinating blend of gripping storytelling and heart-stopping scares. It’s a first-person survival horror indie that, rather than shy away from the grotesque, embraces it as it paints a lurid picture of hell in all its gory glory. If the preview is any indication, Agony will be a benchmark title in how ambiguous plots and graphic scares can be successfully fused into one unforgettable experience.

Solve puzzles and be asked some of life's grandest relationship questions in Solo, a colorful and contemplative indie title.
