Visai Games is a Canada-based independent game development studio with a debut game called Venba. it’s about an Indian woman who migrates with her family to Canada and tries to keep the spirit of their old home alive through her cooking.
The art style of this game is strikingly beautiful, but Venba is truly more than just the art. It lets the gamers experience the story of an Indian immigrant family, and walk through the everyday difficulties faced by them. The music of this game is inspired by Indian musicals. The game was featured in Wholesome Games‘ recent Wholesome Snack games presentation. Check out the game!
Shedworks is an independent game development studio based out of London. The studio works on creating unique games that involve open-world adventures.
Their upcoming game, Sable, is set in an open world with a gorgeous art style. Interestingly enough, Sable doesn’t have any combat and instead lets players focus on exploration like riding on a hoverbike, climbing up walls, and walking across the sand. There are fellow nomads to encounter, puzzles to solve, and secrets to unearth. Learn more about the studio!
As per their website – “BlueTwelve Studio is a small team from the south of France mostly made of cats and a handful of humans”. And we think that’s enough said!
In their upcoming game, Stray, you play as a cat roaming in the rundown alleys of a forgotten cybercity. There’s nothing more to say here, except you get to experience the sight and sounds of the neon-tinged futuristic setting through the eyes of a feline. You have all the agility and stealth. The cat is also said to befriend a small flying drone called B12, which sounds adorable. Check out more about this “pawsome” game! lol.
