22 Indie Games to Watch in 2022

22 Indie Games to Watch in 2022

January 30, 2022 Conor 0

I’ve got more than a little trepidation about writing a list of 22 Indie Games to Watch in 2022. Because, hands up, I was ambitious about 2021. Too ambitious. Of the 21 games I listed last year, only 13 actually came out.  So let’s take those as DEFINITELY coming out in 2022 and that we’re all excited for them. So if you’re here for anything listed here, then go back, all my comments still stand.  For everything else, let’s go through 22 Indie Games to Watch in 2022. (And please let’s all pretend they won’t slip to 2023)

Lake Title

Lake Review: Methodically Mellow Mail Delivery

It would be easy to dismiss Lake as another example of the “Pastoral Saviour” genre, akin to Animal Crossing/Stardew Valley. A stressed city slicker takes a break and goes out to the country to find themselves, their love and reset their life. They fix their life, and bring a little modern culture back to the boonies. You know this plot, because it’s also every other Hallmark movie.  But that would be doing Lake a disservice. Because it is sort of that, but presented so beautifully and interrogated in such a meaningful way that it’s hard not to fall for the quiet pines and placid Lake.
