I want it now!
New Trüberbrook trailer (I actually find the original Kickstarter trailer a bit more enticing).
Spotted them on Kickstarter too:
Looks interesting. Developers are from China, so I’d hope some of that culture would show in the game, too, which would make it even more interesting.
Indeed, but: “Similar to other side-scrollers, players can use a control pad or mouse & keyboard …”
I don’t like such controls in an adventure game.

We Happy Few just launched! I’ve had my eye on this since PAX (or one of those).
From their website:
We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. Set in a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England, you’ll have to blend in with its other inhabitants, who have their own set of not-so-normal rules.
Your character has to take ‘joy’ pills to blend in with the fake-happy society, and when you don’t, you see things for how they really are (see clip below).
I love the concept. The reviews aren’t outstanding, but I try not to pay too much attention to that these days.

Yeah, I actually prefer those to the launch trailer which I don’t think tells you much.
I hadn’t realised it was coming out so soon. It was on early access but there were lots of bugs apparently.
Oh… It ain’t cheap!

I think I forget these games are in a different category to my usual lil cheap old-school ones.
50 Euros on Gog at the moment:
Publisher is Gearbox.
The game has now a steam page (and a new trailer):
They better improve the story and quality of pixel art this time…
Lamplight City will be released on 13.09.2018:
I might just fall in love with platformer games again…
It should be released on 30th and also comes to GOG:
“The Gardens Between” is announced as an “adventure” but seems to have elements of a platformer:
