The developers of the games mentioned below have recently announced that they have released free demos, prologues, or alpha/beta gameplay you can try out now on PC. Furthermore, the full games will be releasing either at the end of this year or early next year and can all be ‘Wishlisted’ on Steam now.

    Mythic Ocean

    Mythic Ocean: Prologue will give you the chance to explore the ocean with branching dialogue and a cast of delightful fish friends. This free demo filled with hours of fun is out as of October 7th, 2019 which you can play on Steam here or here. The full game is now set to release on Windows PC in January 2020.

    Gamescom is the world’s largest event for tech and video games held in Cologne, Germany. Unlike E3, there typically aren’t that many press announcements with release dates but rather you’re given the opportunity to play game demos and possibly get the chance to speak with the developers. This year, Gamescom opens its doors to trade visitors on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, and to members of the public on Wednesday, August 21, 2019. Events and the show floor will be scheduled until Saturday, August 24th, 2019.

    Opening Night Live

    Anyone who is anyone in the industry has confirmed that they will be there including: Xbox, Nintendo, Square Enix, Google Stadia, Epic Games and many more. Geoff Keighley, host and producer of ‘The Game Awards’, will be producing and live streaming Opening Night Live. Check out his Twitter account below for the game publishers that are making announcements. Opening Night Live will also include Hideo Kojima, as confirmed by the man himself, to premiere an exclusive new look of his game Death Stranding. Opening Night Live will be streaming on all major streaming services when it begins on Monday, August 19th at 11 AM PT/2 PM PT/8 PM CEST. With this new addition of a pre-show, we here at myPotatoGames are looking forward to some amazing new reveals!

    The Indie Village and Indie Arena Booth

    Another new addition to Gamescom 2019 is that developers of indie games will now have considerably more space in the entertainment area. Indie Village (in hall 10.2) will be showcasing more than 140 independent developers. The central element of Indie Village is the Indie Arena Booth, which has been taking applications from indie developers for a few years now and supplying them with booths. More than 100 games can be seen in the Indie Arena Booth alone. In addition, you can look forward to a stage program coordinated especially for indie fans, the MIX.

    As you know, we here at myPotatoGames are huge fans of wholesome indie games so we’ve written a list below, including their links to our previous articles for more information. You can also watch the trailer by Indie Arena Booth for the confirmed indie games for Gamescom 2019.

    Other games like Cat Quest II by The Gentlebros Games are teasing that the announcement for their release date is coming soon and that they are “saving it for a special event.” We can only hope that they are talking about Gamescom 2019 as that is less than 2 weeks away! If you know of any other indie games or you yourself are an indie developer, please feel free to contact us to be added to our Gamescom 2019 list if you are attending!

    LUNA The Shadow Dust is a point-and-click adventure and puzzle game developed by Lantern Studio, a small indie game design team of four. Unique features of LUNA include: wordless storytelling, beautiful cinematics, and a breathtaking original soundtrack. The game will release this summer of 2019 for PC, Steam, and mobile (iOS and Android).

    Play as a young boy with his creature companion and solve puzzles to learn of the mysteries of the ancient tower that stands at the edge of world. Help the character bring back his lost memories and find out the darkest secret beyond the tower.

    In addition to solving the puzzles inside the tower, you can also experience the world outside it with approximately 25 different locations. Moreover, players can jump and climb in the environments, and also interact with many different objects.

    Key Feature

    • Traditional frame by frame character animation
      12 frames per second, 3 layers per frame. Over 250 animations and 20 minutes of cinematics. A nostalgic and time-consuming process – but really worth the challenge for a small indie team of four.
    • Single player mode with dual character control
      Solve puzzles from different perspectives. Discover a story of true courage with two playable characters drawn together through an inseparable bond.
    • Think outside of the box
      Spark your imagination and solve a wide variety of puzzles, presented in gorgeous hand-drawn environments. Puzzles work standalone, requiring no ‘hidden items’ or player backtracking.
    • LESS reading, MORE cinematics
      We replaced a dialogue system with a series of beautifully hand-animated cinematics telling a mysterious story.
    • Engaging Original Soundtrack
      Our composer created an original soundtrack, designed to immerse the player in the emotional highs and lows of the story, kindling goose-bumps along the journey.

    Furthermore, the developers have announced in their blog of March that there will be a new demo coming soon. For more information you can go to the official website here. Afterward, check out another point-and-click game, Trüberbrook with us here. That game also has a unique visual-style; built by miniatures and then rendered digitally.
