thus far for a games had to be out in 2019 there’s minimal available gameplay
footage to judge how this might turn out still after a 13 year wait with a sequel

ancient epic sees you play as a young girl chosen by the gods to defend the
human realm and rescue her brother from a demonic invasion our interest in Raji
comes from the character art with its inspiration from South East Asia

2d story driven puzzle game based on north mythology players will solve

these fights appear to have elements from rhythm games each having their own
distinct musical components that change with the players input so far a tone
looks and sounds impressive with it coming to the PC PlayStation 4 and Xbox
at some point during the year give us a decent top-down racing game and we’ll
play it for hours and with apex racing League presented here in the hope that
it might come in 2019 this 3d semi isometric affair just looks so wholesome
and warming with numerous car classes different circuits and weather scenarios
and an online multiplayer we would be very happy to see and play this as soon
as possible coming to the Sega Megadrive with ports yes that does sound quite odd
on to the PlayStation 4 switch PC and others Zeno crisis as an arena shooter

back towards Saturday kids TV shows and afternoons convincing oneself altered
beast was worth putting up with Harold halibut features characters and
backgrounds created from clay cloth wood and other materials and it’s something
quite unlike anything we’ve seen before the gameplay mechanics we suspect might
be fairly simple although that’s not necessarily a bad thing if implemented
with care and skill we understand from those who have spent some time playing
early versions Harold halibuts wow factor comes from the narrative which
keeps players invested and seeking more Felix the Reaper is a romantic comedy 3d
shadow manipulation game you’re responsible for making sure the right
people die at the right time and at the right place using professional dancers
and stop motion capture methods to match their movements onto Felix as he throws

now Felix the Reaper will come to PC and all the major consoles our 15th game in

a drill called grinder you’ll use this drill to cut through the earth and get
around the levels aided with a grappling hook to swing to places you couldn’t
normally get to while there’s no firm date for its launch we expect this
fighting game come platformer should make its way out at some point during
the second half of 2019 with its stunning visuals and isometric
perspective each year lands on the PC and PlayStation 4 with a tail like a
tone that steeped in Norse mythology given the combat seems based on learning
attack patterns and monitoring your stamina there’s no other comparison to
make here that makes as much sense as calling it a pixel driven souls like it
seems riveting and while a long time in production it’s perhaps our most wanted
game of this whole show real and now something completely different the
stillness of the wind said to be out when it’s goats are ready is a farming
type of simulation where you can make your own routine you’ll tend to go to
make cheese with their milk amongst other things collect eggs and
barter with visitors to your remote farm billed as a quiet game of life and loss
with an ominous looking shotgun featuring in the trailer the stillness
of the wind will be on the PC via Steam later in the year in other waters is a
highly stylish looking game about finding life and a missing biologist
within an alien ocean all while looking at and into the relationships between
you and an AI coming from a small team led by Gareth Martin it might be a
little too early to call this as coming out in 2019 although were keen to raise
its profile for others to see with a demo available via the game’s website
you can get a taste of how this plays and looks today
blood-stained ritual of the night as a side-scrolling platformer with RPG and
crafting elements it’s being developed for the PlayStation for PC Xbox and the
switch your players Myriam and orphan scarred by an alchemists curse that’s
slowly crystallizing her skin to save yourself and in keeping with such tales
all of humanity you’re going to battle your way through a demon filled Castle
to confront and destroy the source of the evil and finally the last of our
games were most excited about seeing next year is Oobleck often described as
one of the leading indie game darlings of recent times and a game that will
feature gameplay in line with Harvest Moon mixed with Pokemon plus a dash of
animal crossing it’ll come to the PC and Xbox and looks all rather cute and will
be published by Double Fine all in well it just looks so very very pretty well
that’s it we’re all out of games for our 2019 preview videos and while there’s
going to be a fair few of your choices we missed why not take a moment to let
us know which games you’re most looking forward to down in the comments many

  1. Hi there everyone – many thanks for the tips, hints and suggestions for this follow up video of the best looking most exciting indie games coming out in 2019. See anything you like? Be sure to let us know down in the comments.

  2. well so far 2019 is sounding like a really good year, Xeno Crisis for sure is in my radar now and so is Pepper Grinder, Bloodstained and Psychonauts 2 have been there from the very beginning

  3. So glad Raji made the second list, it's a very important game for us here for finally putting India on the map for serious game development, as Unreal even partly funded it. 🙂
    As for others on the list, much thanks for broadening my own!
    You guys continue remaining the best indie games news channel 🙂

  4. Can't wait for Psychonauts 2. I'm replaying Psychonauts right now.

    Also, I thought of Eitr today but couldn't remember the name. Thanks!

  5. Ooblets looks like it'll be good. The visuals and music just have this feel good attitude to them. I'm defintely gonna pick it up.

  6. Eitr is going to be a must play for me, but its development has been so long that my hype levels have died down a bit.

    Thank you for showing us Atone. I don't know how I haven't heard about it before.

    Would you consider doing a top upcoming pixel art games? I love pixel art so much, so that would be awesome to see. Thanks!

  7. Thank you for making these lists and all of the rest of your content. There are so many indie titles that fall through the cracks, so it's great to see smaller projects get a little spotlight from a channel your size. I wouldn't have even heard of some of these games without your content, so thanks again for doing what you do. Peace.

  8. I think you missed CHILDREN OF MORTA, TALE OF RONIN and NARITA BOY. Or maybe those games aren't coming out in 2019?? (^o^)'

  9. Woo indie games! Even more great titles here. Atone, Ooblets, Bloodstained, Omno and Spelunky 2 are those I'm especially interested in!

  10. I'm gonna put my votes for Part 3 on both Rhythm Doctor (play the demo, it's fantastic!) and Wattam! 🙂
    They are both technically still scheduled for a 2018 release, but yeah… most likely not 😀

  11. I'm not sure which came first, but to me Pepper Grinder looks like they saw the trailer for Ori 2 and made a game based around some of the mechanics.

  12. I'd like to add Narita Boy, UnDungeon, Temtem and RITE of ILK, hopefully all of them coming in 2019!

    Narita Boy:

    UnDungeon:

    RITE of ILK:

  13. And there goes another year.. Really well made like always! Like last year, I wish you luck with your channel in 2019! Last year I said I hope you'll make it to 50k subs at least, but even though you didn't hit it, don't be disapointed, you are doing a great job! You already have a great following, which always come back to your videos, a community, may I say, which is better than hollow masses, trust me! Hopefully this community will keep growing in the years to come, but one thing is sure, I and many others will still be here! I(we) apreciate everything you do, even though it takes time, your work will always be apreciated. Thank you for making these videos, and wish you a rich and growthful 2019! Also, will this be the actual year EITR will be released in? I think it will be the 3rd year i see it in an upcoming indie games video. :)) Guess time will tell..

    P.S: If I may ask a question, answer only if you wish: how many people is your team made of and do you ever plan on doing a Q/A type of video?

  14. Oh, is knights and bikes coming 2019? I feel like that game has been in developement forever. Double fine is fine. So fine.
    Can't wait for Psychonauts 2, as the first one is my all time favorite Game.

  15. again, as I said last video… I want to play every game featured here. 2019 looks to be even better than 2018, so im excited!

  16. I'm looking forward for Damnview. A depressive furry harvest moon/stardew valley game. 😀
    Thanks to this and the prev video, i've filled my steam wishlist…. again. XD

  17. I'm looking forward to Noita and Griftlands as well. Though to be fair, neither of those has been confirmed for 2019. From the list I'm most excited about Sable, Atone and Eitr, more Spelunky should be great too.

  18. I don’t know if it counts as an “indie” game or not (though I think it will), I’m most excited about Daemon X Machina for the Switch.

  19. Baba is You is still the game I'm looking forward to most next year (except Psychonauts 2, I guess). It's coming out in February!

  20. Great list! Thank you for sharing. I would like to add two more: Desperados 3 and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord.
    2019 is going to be another incredible year for indie gaming and also for this channel!

  21. My list of games (maybe) coming 2019

    1. A Plague Tale: Innocence – you play a little girl caring for her brother in a 13th century France, ravaged by war and plague. Charming!
    2. Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord – medieval fighting and commanding armies in real time. With a lot of interlocking systems from character stats to trade and politics.
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/261550/Mount__Blade_II_Bannerlord/
    3. The Executioner – a text quest with turn-based torture system, where you play as an executioner in a kingdom torn between old and new: science or magick, monarchy or revolution. Basically, what medieval detective would look like.
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/739130/The_Executioner/
    4. Spire of Sorcery – a simulator of a renegade mage. Train your disciples, send them to perform quests, grow in power. From a creator of Eador: Genesis
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/637050/Spire_of_Sorcery/
    5. Grimshade – indie rpg with a light heroical tone.
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/858100/Grimshade/
    6. Road of Dust and Rust – a wasteland car chase simulator. All Fury Road in feel.
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/804070/Road_of_Dust_and_Rust/
    7. Ultra Strangeness – a handmade clay game. Very beautiful and quite strange
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/986520/Ultra_Strangeness/
    8. The Uncertain: Light At The End – quest with a sad story of the last humans surviving in a world overrun by robots.
    9. Pathologic 2 – a narrative experience of living through a Plague in a mystic town lost somewhere in the Steppe. You play as three different doctors: the rationalist, the traditionalist and she, who believes in the miracle.
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/505230/Pathologic_2/

  22. Found some great new stuff in these 2019 previews! Really excited about Sable.
    But!
    Radio The Universe is my most anticipated 2019 game. It looks amazing!

  23. All titles may not be in my games list but I can see something for everyone.

    If nothing appeals to someone, well you're an impossible gamer to please(if you are a gamer)

  24. Great list, just stumbled onto this channel. The cool thing about the indie sphere is that there are so many different games of so much variety that there will always be something for someone, no matter what their "speed" (as in taste) is. So there are a lot of great looking games expected for 2019 which weren't mentioned in either of these lists:

    Of those, the ones which most stuck out to me were Druidstone (from the makers of the Legend of Grimrock games), 9 Monkeys of Shaolin, Gravity Circuit, Void Bastards, Flynn: Son of Crimson, Mosaic, Mundaun, Blood Will be Spilled, Slug Slasher, Fading of Zarya 7, BloodRoot, Super Crush KO, Sparklite, We. The Revolution, Yaga, Wytchwood, Zoroastra, Grimo, DARQ, Avernus, Sand is the Soul, Kaze and the Wild Masks, Night of the Blood Moon, Dark Devotion, Iron Danger, Plague in Us, God's Trigger, ZED, The Peterson Case (not that Peterson), Apocalypse Cow, MONOMYTH, Polyroll, EarthNight, Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, Gato Roboto, Re-Legion, and Gibbous.

    Haven't watched the video yet, but did read the description. The Steam store page for Raji says it's going to come out in 2020, right? I know those can be wildly off, so maybe the devs have given a sooner ETA. Looks good, nevertheless.

  25. I think you could add Manifold Garden, a first person puzzler (“portal-like”) inspired by Escher Architecture. If I remember well, there are no game of this category on the list !

  26. Feels like i have been waiting to play as the shield maiden forever, lol a lot of these look really good as well. But Eitr is the one iam most looking forward too.
