The description for Kingdom of the Dead simply states that the players have to push "Death's armies back to the underworld." The imposing pen and ink hand drawn style of this upcoming indie game beautifully exacerbates the horror elements that the story holds.

3) Inua - A Story in Ice and Time

The art style of Inua: A Story in Ice and Time is what catches the attention of the player first. There is a sense of warmth and serenity that the art style beautifully portrays. The official description of the adventure states:

"Inua is a point & click narrative game where three protagonists roam the same places in the far North, decades apart. Explore each era, collect ideas, and influence their decisions to change the course of history."

Players will enjoy exploring different timelines with their distinct tastes and settings, walking in the footsteps of the three protagonists in the game.

Coming from the studio behind Absolver, Sifu looks to be a treat for those who enjoy both martial arts and the beat 'em up action-adventure genre. Following the journey of a kung fu student on a vendetta hunting down assassins, Sifu has garnered enough hype regarding its release.

"A third person action game featuring intense hand-to-hand combat. It puts you in control of a young Kung-Fu student on a path of revenge."

5) Democracy is Not an Option

The official description for this indie game mentions that the player was born a feudal lord and is bored of hunting, executions, tournaments, feasts and beautiful maidens.

"The only dream left - your castle surrounded by hordes of enemies."

The quirky title seems appropriate to the game's premise as players rain down hell from the ramparts of their castle while dealing with troubles that brew inside the walls.
