DRY DROWNING, SECRET NEIGHBOR, & GREEDFALL
Click to win.

ThatHITBOX Indie Roundup’s are built to cover a broad selection of recent / upcoming indie releases. There will likely be no running theme or connective tissue between any of the titles; just two or three games that stood out to us, and therefore might be worth a look. In much the same way as the rest of our review coverage, each title will be given a final score. In the case of a hands on preview, or future recommendation, no score will be given.
We’re kicking things off with a review of Dry Drowning, a point and click visual novel with a moody aesthetic and soundtrack to match. Then, we’re sharing our initial impressions of the Secret Neighbor beta (with a full hands on preview to follow). We’re closing things out with a look ahead at Greedfall, an upcoming open world RPG from Focus Home Interactive that is very promising. We’ll have a full review of that when it launches in September 2019.
DRY DROWNING -
He’s seen some things. He’s getting too old for this. This time it’s personal. I have to save my daughter. Insert cliché here.
SECRET NEIGHBOR (BETA) -
DRY DROWNING (PS4, XBOX ONE, PC, NS)
The neighbor’s house is impractically large. Just think of the bills for gas and electric.
SECRET NEIGHBOR (PC)
So long as I can have access to some sort of lair / hideout, that is perhaps customisable? Then we could be on to a winner...
GREEDFALL (PS4, XB1, PC)
