80’s, pixel art and nostalgia… The indie games of the week that you can’t miss!

It is a tradition at the beginning of each week. We meet again with a small selection of independent video games that go on sale this week, from October 17 to 23. This time around, we’re bringing you a throwback to the 80s, a humorous Soulslike, an edgy hack ‘n’ slash, a futuristic narrative game, and blood!

Nitro Kid

Let’s start our selection with Nitro Kid. Eighties, neon, kung fu, and synth-wave… That sums up this deck-building roguelike.r. In a neon-charged dystopian Miami, you play as an agent who must rescue children captured by a malevolent company. You will use card combos to fight against opponents who stand in your way. With different talent trees offering new abilities, you can customize your fighting style.

  • Available October 18 on PC.

Nostalgaia’s Last Hero

If you like Soulslike, but are tired of them taking themselves so seriously with their dark stories and unsettling worlds, The Last Hero Of Nostalgaia is for you. It is a satirical game with a humorous tone in which even the narrator despises your character and his environment. Speaking of his character, he is described as “the most horrible pixelated hero that ever lived”… A sample of the game’s comedy. As a Soulslike, The Last Hero Of Nostalgaia is tough, but coupled with its cynical humor and nostalgia for classic video games, you’re sure to have a good time despite your many kills.

  • Available October 19 for Xbox (One / Series) and PC.
