This video from the city builder game, Dorfromantik, was shared by the developer (@_Toukana) in this tweet. The art style and color palette is very unique and minimalistic, which makes for a pleasantly relaxing atmosphere. Dorfromantik has been out for a few months, and you can check out the game on Steam right now.
Lightyears From Home
More and more indie developers are trying out Unreal Engine 5, and the results are always stunning. These screenshots from Lightyears From Home were shared by the developer (@LightyearsGame) in this tweet. The snowy environment and the lighting look astonishingly realistic. We hope to see more of this game in the future, and even more indie devs implementing their talents within the new Unreal Engine 5.
This video from ChronoSword was shared by the developer (@DavidSpaceDuck) in this tweet. The video showcases different biomes and environments in the game, and the beautiful and smooth transition when you run through the game. ChronoSword ran a successful crowdfunding campaign last year and is currently in development. You can follow ChronoSword‘s Kickstarter page to get updates about the game’s progress and release date.
Nora The Wannabe Alchemist
This strangely beautiful artwork from Nora The Wannabe Alchemist was shared by the game’s Twitter page (@norathegame) in this tweet. The curvy structures, weird angles, and the color scheme reminded me of some of Salvador Dali’s paintings, and the evil witch with the pearl earring is just the cherry on top of this artistic scene! We are looking forward to seeing more of this surreal game.
Sang: The Desert Blade
This video from Sang: The Desert Blade was shared by the developer (@fiskyfisko) in this tweet. We got to see an exciting boss fight in this video, with various mechanics and terrifying animations. On top of that, the developers announced their upcoming crowdfunding campaign, and you can follow their Kickstarter page to help the development of Sang: The Desert Blade.
