Top 5 Best MORE NEW Indie Games of August 2019


August 20 1908 indie gaming I’m taking
you through a selection of five more games out this August you’re gonna want
to take a look at before we do is a handful of additional honorable mentions
in Mabel in the word you play as a young girl recently resurrected by a strange
and obscure cult that lives out in the forest this Metroidvania sees you able
to shift your form into different creatures and uses a retro inspired
16-bit look and feel the first of two full motion video games in this rundown
Erica was surprisingly launched just after Jeff Keeley’s Gamescom Opening
Night Live presentation and is a PlayStation 4 exclusive Erica is well
produced and coming in between two to three hours of playtime it’s something
fans of FMV shouldn’t overlook dark the last honorable mention for August tells
the story of a boy called Lloyd trapped inside his own nightmare having the
ability to bend the known laws of physics to manipulate the world around
him you spend much of your time working through levar based puzzles that are
often cryptic but never overly indulgent with those honorable mentions all done
and dusted let’s move into the main course and take a look at five more
indie games out in August that are well worth checking out at number five and
out in early access from August 28 monster Sanctuary started life back in
2015 and recently as late last year took to Kickstarter and brought in just over
a hundred and five thousand euros which was over five times the initial funding
goal monster sanctuary is a mix of Pokemon monster catching and battling
together with exploration mechanics of your everyday Metroidvania z’ you play
as a young Explorer hoping to become the ultimate monster keeper Kombat takes the
form of three versus three battles meaning you’re able to create
combination based attacks with your monsters which in turn can see you being
rewarded some of the most rare monster eggs each
monster also has the unique skill tree which means you’re able to tailor and
personalize each of your beasts according to your specific combat style
aside from the combat each monster has their own differing abilities and
getting around the game world this means you’re only able to access certain parts
of the play area once you’ve caught the monster with the given ability to
traverse into these sealed off areas while only out in early access
everything feels solid looks great and has the potential to become a firm
favorite for fans of monster catchers in general welcome to all what’s warehouse
a game for people who love to organize things Wilmot is in charge of this
enormous warehouse where deliveries arrive at the bottom customers place
orders at the top time is limited though because nobody likes waiting too long
for their orders so I’ve been organizing similar objects into groups to make it
easier to find what I need at Number Four and just out today this
August 29th on the PC and Nintendo switch Wilmots warehouse comes from
developers Riki hagit and Richard hog with it published by the wonderful folks
at Finn G best described as a puzzle game for people who really like to
organize stuff you play as Wilmot an employee of the a5 logistics firm who’s
responsible for organizing storing and stacking all of the products within the
firm’s warehouse the products arrive into the warehouse in a random jumble
from the back of delivery wagons and at some point they are handed over to your
co-workers on demand when requested at the warehouse service hatch how you go
about organizing these products well that’s up to you you can choose to do
this via their color product type or any other format you can choose to think of
it’s totally up to you but be warned in what feels eerily knowing or otherwise
similar to reports of the workings of Amazon’s behemoth storage areas if
you’re too slow in locating items when they are requested at the service hatch
you won’t receive the coveted performance stars you need to secure
various upgrades with which to improve your warehouse overall I’m fairly sure
I’ll get a real kick out of Wilmots warehouse when I download it from the
Nintendo eShop later this coming afternoon it’s just piling up like the
worst at number three and out this past week
on the PlayStation 4 and PC Knights and bikes is a coming-of-age tale starring
two girls called Nessa and Demelza their bikes and a cantankerous goose call
captain honkers best played in online or couch co-op Knights and bikes are set
within the late 1980s on an island off the coast of Cornwall down on the
southwest of what we now all know is Great Britain
like many seaside towns of the time period and furs II has had its better
days with the economic downturn of the late 1980s leading to financial hardship
for demelza’s father who at the beginning of the game faces eviction
from his home and business this is one of the better-looking games out all year
with everything being hand painted in what could easily pass as a child’s
pop-up coloring book the visuals have that shiny almost wax-like appearance
you see in pictures drawn from Crayola Crayons and everything from the
background to the characters you meet and enemies you fight well they’re all
wonderfully put together it’s not without the odd floor here and there
it’s overly long with some sections particularly traversing from place to
place feeling somewhat padded you’ll also either loved or loathed certain
audio sections including the opening title track and the noise the girls make
during the running sections is for me somewhat grating that being said the
team here at foam sword have pulled together a wonderful story that finally
explores the notions of childhood naivety and adventure at number two and another game launching
the day this video airs on August 29th heave-ho comes from developers look
cartel and is published by devolver digital the game sees up to four players
tasked with moving from point A to point B on a map without falling to their
deaths while this sounds simple enough having
spent some time with heave-ho earlier in the year
EDX rezzed in London it certainly isn’t a stroll in the park on a warm Sunday
afternoon your character uses their elongated arms to grab hold of playing
surfaces and each other to span the gaps between grapple points
honestly heave-ho is best played with three others and couch co-op it’s best
to think of it as a similar experience to that of overcooked things can’t
easily and very quickly get full passive aggressive as you play make mistakes and
naturally perhaps blame everybody else for your failings in a nice touch are
able to customize your player character and also select avatars based on games
such as Gris my friend Pedro and other titles from devolve as back-catalogue
honestly it’s all wonderful stuff and liable to become the number one couch
co-op game within the get indie gaming household it’s out today on PC and the
Nintendo switch Hey I know well as you see me at number one
telling lies is a supreme achievement and makes its way into my all-time top
three indie games I’ve ever played it doubles down on developer Sam Barlow’s
previous game her story with it featuring a collection of videos you
review out of sequence to piece things all together the acting is superb lis
immersive and stands out as the best I’ve seen within any game of this format
and makes parts of Erika shown earlier utterly wooden in comparison the story
and writing is as sharp as the acting with it feelings are very personal and
just so very human in the six or so hours play time if you watch each and
every clip you thread together the sequence of events with you choosing in
which order to view the various videos some clips last five or so minutes while
others take a little over 30 seconds going into any specific detail of the
plot would be too spoilery although once I got started I found it almost
impossible to leave I play telling lies in one sitting and then again twice more
since I’m sure to come back to it again to as no playthrough is the same in what
in my opinion is the most rewarding interactive entertainment experiences
ever produced so that’s all we have time for in this bonus wrap-up video for
indie games out in August 2019 be sure to let me know your thoughts down in the

  1. Welcome one and all to my follow up video for new indie games out this August. It's been a wonderful month and if there's anything you've really loved playing, let me know down here in the comments.

  2. First!

    Wilmot's Warehouse feels so much like an Amazon's Warehouse simulator. Still have to decide if it's a good or bad thing.

    EDIT: you pointed it out a little bit later in the video lol.

  3. i really like seeing the honorable mentions first… normally i just close the tab after the list is done and i miss out on gold

  4. This channel is very strange. You almost never talk about gameplay. Always about stories, characters and interface style. It's like you don't understand or appreciate that games are MOSTLY about gameplay. Basically you NEVER talk about what could be the strongest part of indie gaming: innovative gameplay.

  5. I played wilmont a couple years ago, got it with a humble bundle. Thought it was out already but maybe they just gave me the demo. Fun but was not my type of game. Also I think the girls voice is phillipa warr from the crate and crowbar podcast.

  6. Wow. I hadn't heard of Telling Lies before. While inventive, i wasnt the biggest fan of her story's story, but after such an upsell, i will definitely check it out. Also, looking forward to gather people to play Heave ho.
