Keep your eyes wide open, as this is the best place for finding exciting investment opportunities and, why not, new indie gems to enjoy this weekend. Let’s begin, ladies, gentlemen and non-binary folks!

The title developed by Out of the Blue Games will compete against Balatro, Viewfinder, Jusant and Dave The Diver. Recently, it also was a finalist in the A.MAZE Awards.

But wait, there’s more to do in Barcelona this weekend! Say hi to RetroBarcelona, a legendary fair focused on retro hardware and software both for industry members and fans alike. In addition to the classics, there will be a ton of new indie games to try. Pay them a visit if you happen to be around Hospitalet de Llobregat!

And 350 kilometres south of these wonderful events, in Valencia, a new edition of the Valencia Indie Summit is taking place. This international event started yesterday and will run until tomorrow, with activities for developers, a networking area, and its own awards gala. This year, illustrious figures such as Shuhei Yoshida (Head of Indies at PlayStation), Chris Charla (ID@Xbox) and Shin Imai (IGN Japan journalist) are part of the jury. Learn more on their website.

Two years ago, Postmodern Adventures gifted us Nightmare Frames, a true homage to old-school point-and-click detective adventures like the Gabriel Knight series and Kathy Rain. They planned to return last Wednesday with An English Haunting, a terrifying new mystery to be solved in early 20th century England. Unfortunately, the Steam version has been delayed due to the platform’s verification process. In the meantime, it is available on!

Spiritualism has become fashionable among London’s high society. In the midst of this madness, Professor Patrick Moore faces the challenge of having to prove the existence of the Great Beyond in less than 72 hours to avoid the closure of his research department. This journey against the clock will take him, along with a fake medium, to the most famous haunted mansion in England.

Solo dev Jordi Milian, ex-member of Herobeat Studios (Endling), shared a new gameplay trailer for this twin-stick melee fighting game A Tiny Eternity. Players will be forced to defend their lives against waves of dangerous, bloodthirsty gladiators — will they discover what lies behind this deadly underground coliseum?

Last but not leastPC Futbol 8, the football management simulator planned for release today, just got delayed to June 7, 2024.
