Wait…what month is it again? It is hard to believe that we are already heading into September but here we are…once again. September is loaded with games and it doesn’t matter what platform you play on there is something for everyone. That means some of us will be a little light in the wallet and if you are an Indie fan well…buckle up!

Blasphemous

Developer: The Game Kitchen

Release date: September 10th, 2019

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch

This game is actually releasing! I remember finding this one on Kickstarter and thinking about what in the world I just witnessed on my screen. The action-platformer is fast, intense, and narrative to the core. Play as ‘The Penitent One’ as you battle to free the world. You will fight horrendous beasts in the land of Cvstodia, a place where religion reigns supreme. Explore a twisted world and try to survive some of the most epic looking boss battles I have ever seen.

Features

  • Awesome pixel art, featuring very large sprites with smooth animations, entirely created using traditional pixel by pixel, frame by frame techniques.
  • Explore a huge, doomed land, a universe that feels open, delivered through a non-sequential level design that puts you in control of where to go next.
  • An insane focus on pleasant combat, meticulously crafted so every push of a button delivers a rush of dopamine directly to your brain.
  • Blasphemous’ levels tell a story that is challenging to decipher, but very rewarding to those who dare to put all its pieces together.
  • Deep progression system with equipable and consumable items: Find your personal combat style by equipping rosary beads, crown thorns, or carrying around relics that boost your combat abilities.
  • An original game soundtrack by award-winning composer Carlos Viola.

GreedFall

Developer: Spiders

Release date: September 10th, 2019

Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

We can talk about this RPG all day long. No seriously. Get ready for the 17th century on an island called Teer Fradee. There rests a place free of the Malichor Plague and the dwindling hope to save mankind. Search for the cure while also making alliances and forging your own path through the game. GreedFall is about making difficult decisions that will impact what happens to your story. With situational combat the title promises to bring something fresh to the genre with the addition of factions and their ever growing need to adapt to the geopolitical landscape.

Features

  • Complete freedom in character progression. Play as a male or female, customize your appearance and freely choose your abilities, spells and skills.
  • Delve into a mysterious world of magic. Begin a grand journey and uncover ancient secrets protected by supernatural beings.

The Sojourn

Developer: Shifting Tides

Release date: September 20th, 2019

This is a beautiful title of thought provoking first-person puzzles that use parallel worlds of light and darkness. In this world you will need to see through the darkness in order to uncover the hidden truth. With challenging and unique puzzles The Sojourn promises to put the best puzzle solver to the test. The gorgeous environments are enough on their own to entice most that enjoy puzzle games.

  • Unravel a captivating tale of light, darkness, and the nature of reality

Niffelheim

Developer: Ellada Games

Release date: September 20th, 2019

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch

I am a sucker for anything Vikings and dealing with Norse mythology so Niffelheim certainly caught my eye right away. Released in early access on Steam the title puts you in the role as a brave warrior who has fallen in battle. Of course instead of going off to Asgard the warrior’s soul is tapped in Niffelheim. Fight in a hostile world, ransack lands, explore dangerous dungeons and hopefully you will find your way to Valhalla.

Features

  • Discover the world ruled by ancient spirits.
  • Beautiful high-detailed graphics painted by hand.
  • Cold and hostile feel of the world of ancient burials and gravesites.
  • Uniquely implemented random generation of the underworld.
  • Endless caverns and dungeons with more evil than gold inside.
  • Creatures and monsters of all kinds inhabiting the savage lands.
  • Diverse quests. Warfare and alliances within the struggle for supremacy.
  • Cooperative Multiplayer. Play alongside AI or your friends or against them.
  • Battle for your domain. Harvest resources. Build your castle and farms.
  • Travel and hunt. Progress in real time.
  • Upgrade your character’s abilities. Forge unique weapons and tools.
  • Find a way to break free from the demons of death grasp.

Northgard

Developer: Shiro Games

Release date: September 26th, 2019

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, Switch

I mean if we are going to have one game released with Norse mythology we might as well have two games releasing next month. Play as brave Vikings that have discovered a new land filled with mystery, danger and riches. Explore and conquer as you bring fame to the clan. With new lands come the unknown and there roaming will be wolves and undead warriors. Defeat all your enemies and survive the winters in order to claim Northgard as your own. I love the look of this game and building settlements along with managing your Vikings sounds like nothing but a great time!

Features

  • Build your settlement on the newly discovered continent of Northgard
  • Assign your Vikings to various jobs (Farmer, Warrior, Sailor, Loremaster…)
  • Manage your resources carefully and survive harsh winters and vicious foes
  • Expand and discover new territory with unique strategic opportunities
  • Achievedifferent victory conditions (Conquest, Fame, Lore, Trading…)
  • Playagainst your friends or against an AI with different difficulty levels and personalities
  • Enjoy dedicated servers and grind the ranks to reach the final Norse God rank!

And there you have it! All these glorious Indie games are releasing next month and I have no idea how we could possibly play them all. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t give it our best shot.
