With Google no longer making its own games for Stadia, independent studios may be crucial to its goal of expanding the service by 400 titles. Today, the cloud gaming platform unveiled 10 new games through the Stadia Makers program, launched last March to give independent developers working with the Unity cross-platform engine an easy route to self-publishing their work. As you might expect, there is no shortage of original stories and the games cover a multitude of genres.
The new additions include The DarkSide Detective: A Fumble in the Dark (April 15), a sequel to the retro puzzle game; Hundred Days – Winemaking Simulator (May 13), for anyone who has ever wanted to own their own winery but was afraid to take the financial leap; Foreclosed (summer), a narrative mystery set in a cyberpunk world; and Figment 2: Creed Valley, a whimsical adventure sequel set in a human mind overrun by nightmarish creatures representing insecurities and doubts.
Other games coming soon include Grime, a side-scrolling RPG in which players fight their way through a hellish landscape armed with “living” weapons; She Dreams Elsewhere, in which you play as a comatose woman on a journey to face her fears; Merek’s Market, a chaotic crafting game in which you take charge of a medieval armory; Death Carnival, a frantic top-down shooter (with online multiplayer) set within a televised blood sport where participants fight mechs and monsters; Skyclimbers, a multiplayer city-building game meets action-RPG that looks a lot like Horizon Zero Dawn; and Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, which gives iconic movie stoners their own side-scrolling beat-em-up.
