Good lord is it March already. After January was four-years long February only felt like a couple of days in comparison. Still, the season of love is behind us and we can all go back to being grumpy again. At least, we could, if it wasn’t for all the lovely weather and brilliant games that are coming up. There’s an interesting selection this time round – not that it isn’t always interesting. So, check out some of the weird and wonderful titles coming to a system near you this month.
Have you ever wanted to be a blacksmith? To forge mighty weapons and create incredible potions and then sell them for a profit? Well, this is very much the game for you. Fantasy Blacksmith puts
you in a world of swords and magic and sets you on a journey to change the world. You can have all the fun of creating a big old sword with none of the risk, and more importantly, none of the mess.
You can live this particular dream on March 1 st when it comes to Steam early access.
ETHERAL looks to be the kind of game that could cause all kinds of fuss amongst many gamers. It had a quirky minimalist visual design, wonderful use of its sound design, and a strange hard to grasp
narrative. You just need to complete the puzzles in order to progress through the different worlds. Each of the four worlds has different mechanics, so each promises to play differently. It genuinely looks like this could be a big one for the indie scene, lord knows we love a weird game. It’ll be out on
PC March 7 th.
Hypnospace Outlaw is – apparently – a 90s internet simulator where you search websites for wrongdoers. While doing this you also have to keep on top of your inbox, make sure you don’t get a virus, and deal with adware. Honestly, this game looks incredibly surreal and will hopefully do the 90s the justice it deserves. Sure, the fashion was terrible, but technology was doing some cool things back then. It is coming to PC March 12 th.
Baba Is You
Baba is You is a game all about rules. Not following them though but changing them to suit you. Every level is a puzzle to be solves by messing around with the laws of that world. You can change
what you are playing as, change the properties of physics in the world, and even change the win condition. It also has an incredibly odd visual style and some great audio too. Baba is You on Switch
and PC March 13 th.
Our World Is Ended
Outward is a co-op RPG that mixes RPG elements with survival gameplay in order to make a hard as nails but incredibly rewarding game. You aren’t the chosen one, you’re a very naughty boy… or girl.
You just need to try and survive out here, did I mention it is basically a roguelike too? It looks like it could be absolutely brilliant and could quite possibly end up being huge. Outward is travelling to you on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 26 th.
