2020 saw the release of a lot of awesome indie games–If Found…, Evan’s Remains, Signs of the Sojourner, Umurangi Generation, Murder By Numbers, Vigil: The Longest Night, What Comes After, Monster Train, and so many others. But with the year coming to a close, it’s time we start looking forward to the ton of cool-looking indie games scheduled to launch in 2021.
Of the many indies currently scheduled to come out in 2021 and beyond, these 50 have really caught our eye. They’re listed alphabetically.
A time loop-focused thriller, 12 Minutes sees you learn that your wife is pregnant before a police officer breaks into the apartment, accuses your wife of murder, and kills her. You’re then sent back 12 minutes into the past and are given free reign to try and influence the outcome of events before they reset again. You aren’t given an explicit goal; it’s up to you to figure out what the best outcome to the time loop is. The game’s voice cast is composed of James McAvoy (Split), Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man). 12 Minutes is scheduled to launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2021.
