Some Games to Look Forward to in 2017
Most of these are indie titles, again

2016 turned out to be a great year for gaming, with Dishonored 2, The Witness, Doom, Overwatch, Superhot, Thumper, Hyper Light Drifter, Cogmind, Devil Daggers, Furi, Brigador, Age of Empires 2 HD keeping me entertained throughout most of the year.

Which games am I looking forward to in 2017? Below follows my personal list.

Kingdoms and Castles

  • Tower 57 is a twin stick shooter with 16-bit inspired pixel art, destructible environments, and a heavy focus on co-op.
  • Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition: not sure yet about this one, since I already own the original and don’t think it’s fair having to rebuy it. Also I’m not that much of a Gearbox fan anymore lately.
  • Strafe and Dusk: two beautiful oldskool gory Quake-like shooters.



  • Eitr: an action RPG with exceptional combat.
  • RIOT - Civil Unrest has been on my list for a few years now but it might finally see a release this year.
  • Manifold Garden: also an ealier-seen entry, (formerly known as Relativity.)
  • Drift Stage: also an older entry. Still not sure about the release date but still like the art style. Wings of Saint Nazaire is also still on the list, as is Irkalla and Before (which finally got a trailer up).

Fun facts:

  • Earlier I wrote about Mirror’s Edge 2 as something I was looking forward to without “having high hopes”… well that turned out to be right.
  • In a similar vein, I wrote about No Man’s Sky: “of course I am including it in this list. Of course I’m worried about it like everyone else.” Well that certainly turned out to be a distaster.
