July isn’t finished when it comes to fresh new video games. And while there’s no Ghost of Tsushima or AAA giant to occupy the headlines this week, one Australian project has proudly emerged from its development.

Necrobarista, a visual novel about the lives of a back-alley coffee cafe set in Melbourne, is finally out this week. It’s done the rounds at PAX Australia for a while, and was originally due for release last year until it got a surprise delay.

It’s not the only Aussie game out. There’s Little Reaper, a platformer about being an assistant to the Reaper. It was first called Grim Balance, in case you remember that one.

Elsewhere, it’s a big indie week. GolfTopia is bringing back the SimGolf vibes with a sci-fi touch. Carrion is taking the platformer formula and turning you into the creepy horror creature. There’s the very cool looking Vagrus – The Riven Realms 

Oh, and Crysis Remastered hits the Switch this week. Somehow. Can’t wait to see how that runs.

Here’s this week in games:

Real interesting mix of indies to mess around with. See anything you like this week?


  • I’ve been looking forward to Necrobarista ever since it was announced. I’ll definitely be picking it up.

  • Carrion and Necrobarista have been my picks for the week, but a big and enthusiastic shoutout to Dex on Switch.

    Dex has been on PC for years now, and it’s a really outstanding Cyberpunk game. 2D, but very light on the platforming and brawling, it uses its style very well to deliver its main focus: atmosphere and a story that includes a surprising amount of choice.
