This Week’s Indie Game Releases (May 2-8)

Although plenty of us will be visiting a certain village when it REleases later this week, there are still some solid indie titles worth checking out in the build-up before your weekend horror binge-fest. It’s definitely a slower week for the indie scene, but here is a handful of titles worthy of your time.

Here are our picks for this week in indie games, May 2-8.

Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition – May 5 (PS4)

Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition is a nihilistic action platformer roguelike featuring 2D pixelated graphics. Nongunz boasts an obscurity with both its gameplay and theme, hinting at the idea that the game is hard as hell (because you need more of that along with Returnal’s recent release, right?). Nongunz: Doppelganger Edition will release on PS4 on May 5.

Dull Grey – May 5 (PS4, XB1, Switch, Vita)

Dull Grey – from developer Provodnik Games – is an award-winning visual novel about growing up. The story surrounds the relationship of a mother and son, free will, and the search for happiness among a dull and grey mountainous backdrop. Dull Grey will launch on May 5 for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation Vita.

Almighty: Kill Your Gods – May 5 (PC)

Almighty: Kill Your Gods is an action RPG in which you’ll take on demons, monsters, and gods either by yourself or with friends online, using extraordinary running, leaping, and flying skills to rips enemies apart.
