Every title is listed in alphabetical order along with a trailer. If any games are MIA please let me know in the comments.

Hohokum

  • Developer: Honeyslug
  • Honestly, I’m not sure what the deal with this game is. Sometimes it looks like a rhythm game, sometimes it looks to be a bit of a platformer, and other times it looks like something completely unique. Flower and Flow would be the closest comparison I can make.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number

  • In this title you take control of a man named Ray who is trying to figure out why he came back as a zombie and how he ended up dead in the first place. It blends action, puzzles, and even stealth elements to create one of the most unique games I’ve seen in quite some time.

Rime

  • Developer: Tequilla Works
  • Rime is a presumably open-world adventure game that looks like a cross between Ico and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Not much is known about this one but the ending of the trailer seemed to hint that the game is far more sinister than it initially appears.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
