For this recurring segment, we will be highlighting the five biggest stories on IndieDB for the prior week. Whether it's demo releases for upcoming indie games, Kickstarter campaign announcements, or important stories that affect the indie gaming as a whole, you'll find them rounded up here each week.
The Week of April 28 2019
Grimshade is a party-based RPG, inspired by JRPG’s and the best of CRPG’s of the past. It combines well thought through tactical combat system with turn-based battles and adventures in a gloomy tale of war and personal choice.
Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark is a turn-based tactical RPG featuring striking fully hand-drawn graphics, in a 2D isometric perspective. You will need to use strategy and cunning, as well as master a complex class system, to conquer the challenging battles ahead of you. Unfold a mature story centered around your position as one of the Arbiters, an order dedicated to keeping the peace and the balance of power throughout the lands. While many allies with storied personalities and goals of their own will join your ranks during your adventures, you may find yourself favoring a cherished non-story character due to the ability to fully customize them. By changing their portrait, name, clothes, hats, color and accessories, every ally is unique. Reminiscent of Final Fantasy Tactics both in scope and style, Fell Seal's intricate class system promises to deliver to the player a widely varied array of customization and possibilities.

Infected Shelter is a randomly generated rogue-lite post-apocalyptic action RPG shooter / dungeon brawler. Singleplayer and co-op for up to four players.

Platforms: Windows PC, Mac, Linux. Later: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One.
