Best New Indie Games For September 2020 Week 3
With the gameplay reveal of Immortals: Fenix Rising fresh in our memories, we march into the third week of September. This week’s list for the best new indie games for September 2020 includes four blockbuster indie releases to keep you entertained in the latter part of the month. Let’s see what they are.
1. Medieval Dynasty
Release Date: 17 September 2020 Early Access
Developer/Publisher: Render Cube & Toplitz Productions
2020 isn’t a great year unless you are into simulating medieval life. This year we have seen some excellent games where you simulate some or other aspect from medieval life. With games such as Mount and Blade 2 Bannerlord, and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, medieval life is in our grasp. But if that is not enough for you, this week sees the Early Access release of Medieval Dynasty.
If you crave a medieval simulation that is more granular and detailed than the other games in the genre, Medieval Dynasty has you covered. You will build your dynasty up from the ground, literally. You will need to chop down trees and gather other resources to build buildings and eventually towns where your people can live and prosper.
This is all done in glorious 3D, with stunning graphics to complete the experience. This means you will have a very detailed view of your struggles through the cold winter months, your hunting expeditions, and even your adventures into some of the unexplored caves in the area.
We are looking forward to the release later this week. There is nothing quite like a good simulation game to help you escape the realities of 2020.
2. Dead Motherland
Release Date: 16 September 2020
Apart from the screenshots and a very brief blurb on Steam, not much is known about DEKLAZON’s Dead Motherland. We know that Dead Motherland is a post-apocalyptic zombie game set in a cold and frozen Russian landscape. The game is a co-op survival shooter, and we also know that you will be able to craft and build fortifications.
Other than that little is known about the game even this close to release. We are sold on the idea of a top-down post-apocalyptic zombie survival game, and we hope Dead Motherland can give us a worthy experience.
3. The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos
Release Date: 17 September 2020
Developer/Publisher: Artefacts Studio & Dear Villagers
Our next game this week is a good ol’ classic turn-based RPG. First-off, The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk has some gorgeous graphics and the heavily animated style does well to compliment the not-so-serious setting of game. The game does not hide its reliance on traditional RPG tropes, and the heroic fantasy setting is wholly embraced.
Mechanically speaking, the game doesn’t do a lot to add new things to turn-based RPG’s. That doesn’t really matter if they manage to give us a great story with interesting characters that build on these tried and tested mechanics.
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk seems to have all the right recipes for a great RPG, with striking visuals to top it off. We are excited about its release and will definitely try to find the Amulet of Chaos.
Release Date: 17 September 2020 Steam Release
Developer/Publisher: Bird Bath Games & Raw Fury
Now, Atomicrops isn’t strictly speaking a new release, but it is breaking free from the clutches of its Epic exclusivity and coming to Steam this week. The game has already received fantastic reviews from critics and players alike, so we know the game is worth your hard-earned money.
If you want to tend the last farm in existence after the apocalypse, kill some monsters, make some money, and get hitched, keep your eyes peeled on the 17th of September 2020 when Atomicrops hits Steam.
That’s the four games that made our list for the best new indie games this week, check in next week to see what September has to offer before we enter the October release race.
