18 most anticipated indie games for PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PC

With the PS5 and Xbox Series X remaining difficult to find six months after release, there hasn’t been much pressure by Sony and Microsoft to push out AAA content. Since launch, major game launches have slowed to a trickle, and even titles like Resident Evil Village have opted to release on last gen alongside current gen. 

While AAA game developers are still trying to figure out remote development thanks to the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, indie game developers are used to collaborating from different time zones. We feel that indie games don’t get enough love. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most anticipated indie games we’re looking forward to in 2021.

Cris Tales is a game so committed to its art direction that some could easily mistake it for an animated cartoon. In Cris Tales, you play as Crisbell, the newly awakened Time Mage on a mission to bring down the Time Empress, who’s threatening the four kingdoms. The lineless art and up-beat voice acting would seem straight out of studios based in Burbank, CA. Yet, the teams at Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK have created a style that’s both joyous and menacing. The combat seems to be a standard turn-based affair, with callbacks to Persona 5. We’re hoping it delivers on more than just style. – Imad Khan
