The Most Exciting Indie Games Coming Out In April 2018

Written by Jon Sutton on Sun, Apr 1, 2018 12:00 PM

Honestly, wading through the dregs like Achievement Idler, Vantage: Primitive Survival Game, and Death from Unknown: Survival, just to find the games that don’t look like absolute shite, is quite a task these days, on Steam or anywhere else. Still, wading beneath all of them there are plenty of potential indie gems arriving in April, and in true indie fashion, we expect there to be some big surprises along the way.

A quick shout to Simon the Sorcerer: 25th Anniversary Edition though. An absolutely classic adventure game, this looks to have been ‘remastered’ with quite possibly the worst visual overhaul I’ve ever seen in my life. Just look at the trailer below and witness this abomination in action. Thankfully, Frostpunk’s gorgeous snowbound apocalypse more than makes up for it.

While certainly not the best month we've had, there's still a few potential indie gems lurking here. On top of that, we usually get one or two surprises drop that come out of nowhere and pick up through word of mouth.

So feel free to vote which indie you're most looking forward to this month, and if you've got an undiscovered gem that isn't on this list then do be sure to share it in the comments section below!

Frost punk looked interesting till i did some research and found that it is something like Anno or city skylines, i though it was a third or first person action game, so disappointed:/
