August 9, 2016 by Justin Burnham

It's that time of the week where we sit down and share our favorite indie games... Indie Roundup time! This week, we wanted to give you a little taste of everything. Horror, Lovecraft, multiplayer madness with disc throwing craziness, to the ability to use teddy bear corpses to progress. No matter what genre you prefer, the following indie games are guaranteed to bring you an experience like no other.

1. Disc Jam - High Horse Entertainment

For those of you that find yourselves missing the fantastic cult hit Deathrow on the Xbox and love the arcade madness that titles like Rocket League bring to the table... look no further than Disc Jam! The addicting nature of this multiplayer title is something that will have you losing friends and developing a serious case of carpal tunnel. Buy Disc Jam on Steam!

2. Stifled - Gattai Games

This game will hear you coming... literally. Originally starting out as a student concept game called Lurking, Stifled is a game that can give even the bravest gamers the creeps. A microphone is needed to bring you into the experience, where the monster and other enemies will be able to hear exactly how much noise you make when you're running to hide. Buy Stifled on Steam!

3. A Place for the Unwilling - AlPixel Games

This indie game is a Lovecraftian adventure capable of grabbing the attention of any fan of the culture. In addition, the art style will stop you in your tracks as its aesthetic is intriguing, skillfully designed, and just plain awesome. The open world in A Place for the Unwilling samples influences from games like Sunless Sea and Majora's Mask, two games we adore here at Indie Obscura. Buy A Place for the Unwilling on Steam!

4. Super Rude Bear Resurrection - Alex Rose Games

Let's start by saying that one of the most notable aspects in the game is the fact that you need to die and then use the teddy bear's corpse to progress forward. This alone is reason enough to give this unique indie a try, but when you dive right in and start playing, you'll realize that Super Rude Bear Resurrection has no shortage of surprises to keep you coming back for more (and may rekindle your love for stuffed animals in the process). Buy Super Rude Bear Ressurection on Steam

5. Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem - WOLCEN Studio

While we love every game of every genre, we're still suckers for a good action RPG. Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem delivers this in spades. This masterful game delivers the RPG elements you know and love in a very tight, solid way... especially for an Early Access title. WOLCEN Studio plans to add even more to what is already a pretty beefy game, and we couldn't be more excited for its full official release, especially with what we've already seen in Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem so far. Buy Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem on Steam
