I'm back with another batch of recent indie releases that might have slipped under your radar. As always, I'm not endorsing any of these games, just highlighting some titles that look promising. Make sure you read user reviews and search YouTube to find more information on each title.

First up is Bounty Train, a historical trade sim set in the Wild West of 19th Century America. Design your locomotive, hire your crew, and transport cargo through dangerous territory. Ambushes and attempted train robberies are handled in real-time tactical battles and involve micromanaging your crew to get them to the best defensive positions. Bounty Trains' non-linear story features numerous historical events, and even gives you a chance to alter history. You can also find Bounty Train on GOG and the Humble Store.   
 

Portal Knights
Keen Games
$19.99

The cooperative sandbox RPG Portal Knights has finally released from Early Access. Build structures, craft gear, mine for resources, and explore procedurally generated open world environments with up to three of your friends. Construct portals that bring you to the lairs of the Portal Guardians, and engage in boss battles with the most powerful monsters in the realm. Character classes include Warrior, Ranger, and Mage, each with their own set of special abilities to unlock. Also available on the Humble Store, PS4, and Xbox One.
 

Nongünz    
Brainwash Gang
$6.99

ss_f023d568b81af16169b516806f4d739c20afb

Nongünz is a twisted roguelite platformer with some deck building and bullet hell elements. Raid procedurally generated dungeons for the resources you need to upgrade your graveyard, which acts as a central hub for your dungeoneering. As you play you'll gather followers at your graveyard that you can spend money at to upgrade your character. Some followers gradually harvest resources for you, giving Nongünz a few elements typically found in idle games. The deck building element comes in the form of cards you find in the dungeon, each of which gives you a new ability, or can be burned to regain some precious health.
 

Hyper Knights
Endless Loop Studios
$4.99

Hyper Knights blends fast, combo-based combat against large armies with more traditional strategy elements. Recruit allies and command vast armies of minions to conquer enemy castles and outposts. Massacre dozens of enemies at once with upgradable combo attacks. Between battles you'll get a chance to upgrade your kingdom and move your armies into position for the next fight.

Regalia is a turn-based tactics RPG promising over 30 hours of content and a lighthearted storyline. After passing away unexpectedly, your father leaves you in charge of the faraway Kingdom of Ascalia. Unfortunately, your dreams of running your own kingdom are quickly shattered upon realizing that Ascalia is bankrupt and crawling with debt collectors. Recruit over 20 unique allies and do some old-fashioned dungeon crawling to return Ascalia to its former glory. Also out on GOG and the Humble Store.

Curious about her new powers, Zia embarks on a journey to find exiled mages that can teach her how to control her abilities. The main mechanic in Mages of Mystralia is the ability to design your own spells by combining runes in different ways. Create custom spells to overcome enemies and puzzles however you choose.
