Beyond This Side
For months, he hangs around the alley where her hand was found in the hopes of uncovering more info. Will his quest slowly pull him into the city’s dangerous underbelly? Well, yes, probably. But I guess we’ll have to wait until later this year to be sure.
Path to Mnemosyne
Story-wise, you’ll work to gradually uncover your own lost memories. It’s said to offer a minimalist, mysterious tale, which is clearly enhanced by the uneasy sound design and bizarre visual style.
Path to Mnemosyne is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Genre: Adventure, Puzzle
There are a number of environmental elements to play around with as you go about trying to solve its imaginative puzzles, as well as plenty of multidimensional enemies to outwit along the way.
You’ll play as a young woman led to a lost desert temple that seemingly holds mysterious powers. Its tale is a soul-searching adventure exploring themes of grief, happiness, and our own inner demons.
Shifting the area will result in the toad and, in many cases, a number of enemies/environmental hazards moving around. This means you’re going to have to think carefully about your every move, as even the slightest of turns can result in the poor toad’s untimely demise.
Exciting things happening soon with #tombtoad. For now, here’s a rough trailer I’m working on for #screenshotsaturday.

Rog & Roll
Its environments are an interesting mix of 2D pixel art and low-poly 3D, putting a fresh spin on its platforming action. Each level is packed with well-hidden secrets to uncover, though they’re also built to accommodate speedier runs.
Rog & Roll looks like it could appeal to platformer enthusiasts of all types.
Echoes of Aeons
It ditches turn-based combat in favour of hack-and-slash action, though it’s careful to carry over the expansive world, narrative, and sense of adventure that turned many of its inspirations into genuine classics.
It’s also clearly quite an ambitious title, offering 15-20 hours of quality adventuring in its main story alone.
The different stages have their own specific rules that seemingly mix up the gameplay and keep things fresh. There are, for example, underwater stages that mess with your established timing and rhythm.
UNDER THE SEA…under the sea…???? the shells are opening with different speed, you have to find the perfect timing. @CM_Games#pixelart #1bit #indiedev #iOS #gamedev #mobilegame #android #aseprite #swordshot #madewithfusion #chiptune#screenshotsaturday #RETROGAMING pic.twitter.com/LFj7aiXBrX— Oleg Klaus (@BIOBOOSTERPIXEL) January 25, 2020
Here, the world only moves when you do. To survive and hopefully find a way home, you’re going to have to head out, survey the island, and solve plenty of puzzles.
Fans of Link’s Awakening and other classic Zelda games will likely get a kick out of Solar Knight’s visuals and sense of adventure.
Nights can be treacherous around Ryo. Especially with the undead goblins shambling around and such.#screenshotsaturday #gamedev #pixelart #godotengine pic.twitter.com/1pzVbd8ZFS— vini, making solar knight ☀️⚔️ (@vmenezio) October 5, 2019
