The Most Exciting Indie Games Coming Out In May 2018

Written by Jon Sutton on Sun, Apr 29, 2018 4:31 PM

 May's shaping up to be a pretty quiet month for gaming, all said and done, so it's the perfect time for this band of intrepid indies to shine. The next four weeks are looking a little bit threadbare but there should be at least something for everything in this bag of indie gems. 

Yoku's Island Express in particular looks as if it could become quite the hit, blending open-world 2D adventuring with pinball movement mechanics. Absent of MLB The Show, Super Mega Baseball 2 should once again be the number one stop on PC for baseball fans, while we get an absolute blast from the past with the arrival of Overload, a spiritual successor to Descent, the classic 6-degrees-of-freedom shooter.

Here are some of the most promising indies launching this month. Do be sure to vote in the poll below for whichever ones you plan to pick up!
