10 radical indie games coming out in October

Posted on October 6, 2022

BOO! The spooky season is upon us and so is a new month of indie games – exciting, huh? This is a list filled with some extraordinary experiences. I also would be remiss if I didn’t mention Melbourne Games week being upon us as I type this. I’m sure everyone cannot wait to jump into yet another PAX Aus after 2 years online and see all the awesome games – specifically indie games floating down the pipeline for us.

And it wouldn’t be one of my indie games lists if I didn’t fawn over Hollow Knight: Silksong. I’m rather hoping I’ll be able to get my hands on a demo this weekend during PAX if the game is present. Fingers crossed!
