Saturnalia is a jazzy survival horror game going to the Epic Games Store in 2021. The game happens in Sardinia, Italy in 1989, in an old village with a dreadful custom — and individuals vanish every year. What stands apart from most is Saturnalia’s art style. I haven’t seen anything like it!

Nuts is a game about watching squirrels. It has an unmistakable craftsmanship style — it looks unfathomable. In watching these squirrels, the player will “reveal the mystery that the inquisitive animals are hiding.” I am exceptionally energized.
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion
The name says everything — Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion. There are puzzles, crops, fights, yet the majority of all, no duties. “Destroy a bad vegetable government,” as per the Steam page. Who isn’t down with that?

Indeed, we have a huge cyberpunk game out toward the finish of 2020. In any case, there is something else entirely to the genre, and you can see that in Chinatown Detective Agency. It happens in 2032 in a stylish, cutting edge Singapore. Made by Singapore-based engineer General Interactive Co., it would appear that a fascinating future.
From developer Visai Games, Venba is depicted as a “narrative cooking game,” set in 1980s Canada. It fixates on an Indian mother, with players, tasked with cooking and recollecting lost recipes. It’s a story about “family, love, loss, and more” the developer wrote on Steam. It looks mind-boggling.

The colorful world of 30XXlooks speedy and intense and it has an awesome soundtrack. It looks a ton like Mega Man X, however as per the developer, it has the “replayability of a modern Roguelike.” Co-operation is accessible as well. If you loved 20XX, you’ll like this game, as well.
I’ve been intrigued with Mundaun’s visuals since it was announced. The game is pencil-drawn, telling a horror story “set in a dim, disconnected valley of the alps.” The aesthetic is surely enough to attract people; however, the story and interactivity make this a game to watch.
Another cyberpunk-styled game, ANNO: Mutationem is from the developer of ThinkingStars and publisher Lightning Games. It has a truly cool style — a blend of 2D and 3D illustrations.

At the point when it’s protected to do as such, the main café I will visit is my local hot pot spot. All things considered, I’m eating hot pot with my accomplice at home, and looking forward to experiencing the virtual variant of it when Hot Pot for One comes out one year from now.
There is a ton of noir, investigator style games turning out in 2021, yet Backbone sticks out. From developer EggNut and distributed by Raw Fury, Backbone makes them play as a raccoon detective for hire named Howard Lotor. The pixel craftsmanship style is awesome, and I can hardly wait to try this smart point-and-snap experience game.
I played Maquette at PAX East in 2020, and have been anxiously anticipating its release date. The game previously showed up in 2011 at the Game Developers Conference, and its bright plan was a moment hit. At last, it’s a full game, based around an imaginative and intriguing riddle style.
