Weekend Playlist: This Week’s Indie Game Releases - February 25, 2022
The release of the already critically-acclaimed Elden Ring may have kept most indie studios from releasing new titles this week, but the last week of February brings with it a few indie titles that look to be worth checking out this weekend, along with some Early Access releases.
Here are our picks for this week’s indie Weekend Playlist.
Brendan Keogh's Putting Challenge (PC)
Retro gaming fans will want to be sure to check out Brendan Keogh's Putting Challenge – from developer Brendan Keogh – which is an “open-world golf game about all the parts other golf video games cut out.” The 8-bit gold game features local co-op for up to four players as you navigate five different 9-hole courses. Brendan Keogh's Putting Challenge is now available on PC via Steam. The game is also currently 10%-off the regular price on Steam, and 25%-off the DLC bundle featuring a luxury golf cart.
Clouzy! (PC, XBX)
Clouzy! – from developer Tinymoon – takes the award for most wholesome release this week. The life sim sees you raising and taking care of sentient clouds in a game that looks as cozy as it is adorable. Clouzy! is now available on Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam. The game is also currently 20%-off the regular price on Steam.
The Legends of Tynedale (PC)
Retro-inspired, top-down, action-adventure game The Legends of Tynedale – from developer/publisher Ed Den Gaming – is definitely right up the alley for fans of the original
The Legend of Zelda. You’ll take on the role of Geordie as he conquers complex lock-and-key dungeons, defeats epic bosses, and uncovers the dark truth behind Tynedale. The Legends of Tynedale is now available on PC via Steam.
Finally, here are a few other indie games that are releasing in Early Access or are making their debut on new platforms:
Lonvinter – Available now for PC via Steam Early Access
SCP: Pandemic – Available now for PC via Steam Early Access
