Adventure Lovers - Here are the Latest Indie Adventure Games - January 2022 - Odd Nugget

Contents

It's a bit strange that no one has made a Keeping up With the Kardashians adventure game yet.

Potentially unlocking Kanye West as a playable character would make it impossible to stop playing.

On a loosely related note...

Adventure games can offer up a lot of fun and these indie picks are pretty affordable too! See for yourself...


The Chains That Bound Me


The Chains That Bound Me Developed by Yobob and published by Yobob Games

Developed by Yobob and published by Yobob Games

Explore the city of Florie in the lower district, a place where the guards oppresses the working people. Death is common and starving people will ask you for food. Play as Arridaios, one of the leading members of the rebellion. People look up to him and hope that their revolt will succeed. But Arridaios is reluctant in helping the people. He wants to live in what little peace he has. Things don't go the way as planned. Arridaios discovers that his friend went missing. And along the way in finding him, he sees something he dreads. Something he never wants to see again. Far worse than the oppression of King Leuric.

Developed by Will Farhat and published by Will Farhat

Welcome to Outset.

Outset is a 2D platformer RPG being developed for PC and Mac. You control an Explorer, a wanderer tasked with searching the surrounding world and ideally finding something useful to bring back to your home - the village of NOTDON.

But how will you do that? With your GRAPPLING HOOK!

This stylish tool lets you speed across gaps and barrel through the world in a gameplay loop that combines fast-flowing platforming and nonlinear exploration. It'll even impress the other Explorers (for better or for worse) and make you the talk of the town, for the first time ever!

Along the way, you'll encounter ferocious foes, navigate the world, and maybe uncover some secrets about the world around you and your place in it.

Nah, of course you won't! It's just a game where you fight robots and try not to die! Just a fun, friendly, little game......right?FEATURES:Master your grappling hook and its slew of upgrades to discover new locations and secretsLearn about the world around you through gameplay, new discoveries, and LOTS of (mostly optional) flavortextForge your own path... nonlinearly! Every dialogue choice and navigational decision will significantly change the story and the path forward.Explore the 6 distinct regions of a massive, interconnected world (this is an indie game, though. It won't an AAA open-world game in 2D. But it will be big. But not that big. But still big. But not...)Get hustled by no less than 2 very similar shopkeepersWitness the evolution and impact of humanity firsthand (this means that major areas in the game will change and adapt based on the story)Take a napAnd many more!On track for a release in early 2022... hopefully!Made by Will FarhatProgrammed in GameMaker Studio 2
