Best of luck for all readers, I hope you saved some money for this insane month! Especially February 15 is a very busy period with four big IP’s Crackdown 3, Jump Force, Metro Exodus, and Far Cry: New Dawn. Other big releases include Anthem, DiRT Rally 2.0 and The LEGO Movie 2. Take a look at all the February releases and our four hand-picked indie favorites for this month.
Four Indie-spotlight games
Big releases get enough attention, so each month I pick four indie games that I think are worth your money. This list is in alphabetic order!
Degrees of Separation (14 Feb)
I’m sure they love to bring out this game on Valentine’s day, this 2D co-op puzzle game from developer Moondrop looks absolutely fantastic with a very beautiful art style. You will be navigating complex cooperative platforming puzzles by interacting with the environment.
Fimbul (28 Feb)
This action adventure game based on the old mystical Nordic world from developer Zaxis is another fantastic looking world. A prime example that indie-games can stand out between big AAA-games, the atmosphere and hopefully
Salt and Sanctuary (6 Feb)
Guessing this game doesn’t need an introduction for the most of you, with many favorable reviews on other platforms Salt and Sanctuary is finally releasing on Xbox One. Best described as a 2D Dark Souls game, hard gameplay and creepy dark visuals make this a must play.
RIOT: Civil Unrest (6 Feb)
A real-time riot simulator. That wasn’t something you were expecting to play in 2019, right? Merge Games is bringing this very unique experience for Xbox One, letting you play as the crowd and police forces in many different scenarios. Beautiful pixel-art and one-of-a-kind gameplay make this niche game worthwhile.
