10 magnificent indie games coming out in August 2022

Posted on August 3, 2022

Look out! August is here and the indie games are out in force. Every game on this list looks exceptional!

Cult Of The Lamb is finally coming out this month; it’s possibly the cutest cult game ever! It’s everything I live for in an indie release and there’s no way it won’t become an Australian indie darling. Get your hands on this one, or risk a sip of the cool-aid!

My favourite release this month has to be We Are OFK by Team OFK for its stylised blend of storytelling and musical excellence! I’m fascinated to see how the game uses music to enhance the storytelling. Each of the trailers has left me begging to hear more of the songs teased because I’ve found them relatable. It feels like We Are OFK has a real soul to it that I’m excited to experience when it releases!

But without further ado, enjoy Augusts’s list of magnificent indie releases!
