2018 has been a year for beautiful indie games and so it seem fitting to end the year with this picturesque beauty!

Smooth animation and a wonderful storybook look means that this games difficulty will only be tripled as I loose concentration and just gaze at in in awe.

What new titles are you most excited for this week? Be sure to let us know!

This will be the last Coming Out for 2018 but we’ll be back in 2019!
