10 gleaming indie games coming out in September 2022

Posted on September 2, 2022

Well, September is here – shocking I know. It’s another bumper month. I’m sure many of you are still tending to your cult as a certain lamb like I am. Who would’ve thought cleaning up poop and sacrificing those who aren’t devout to the cause. Good times, I love ewe Cult Of The Lamb!

There’s also more Aussie indie games coming out this month! Wayward Strand, coming from the crew at Ghost Pattern. Boasting over 25,000 lines of voiced dialogue this is one that’s coming out the gate on a whole other level! I’m very excited to see this one achieve great things! As a narrative game developer, this project is so inspiring to me so I bet it will be just as enjoyable to experience as a player!

And don’t forget JUSTICE SUCKS! This one is an arcade adventure where you’ll take up arms as a robo-vac  named Dusty who’s gotta protect his home. I’m a sucker(HAHA) for a game where you play as a robo-vac, maybe it’s because I don’t yet own my own. Samurai Punk has made quite the name for themselves as an indie developer – creating amazing games and apparel. If you see their booth at a convention, pop in and check their threads out after you try out their thrilling roster of games!
