Promising Indie Games to be Released in 2023



Reading Time: 3 minutes


The gaming industry offers something new every year. Innovations in the marketplace bring novel graphics, stories, and experiences. If you are a gamer or enjoy playing new video games, you should continue reading to see what the year 2023 has in store.

The indie culture was born out of a desire to meet the needs of individuals within niche spheres of interest. Thus, indie games are those made by an individual or a small group of developers. Some believe such games have more heart, as developers are usually passionate about their craft.

With that in mind, here is a list of the best indie games that will be released in 2023.


If you like puzzles and mysteries, you will be excited about the new game by Extra Nice. In this game, you are detached from your earthly body and expected to find a body you can “possess” and become a citizen of Earth again. That may not seem too complicated, but there are many levels you need to pass to get into your mortal shape.

You will have to develop a plan to get out of the shadows and jump into a new body you can use on Earth. The graphics make the game even more interesting – the two-dimensional design will contribute to the overall strategic atmosphere of the game. You will have fun finding your new earthly form, and reviewers have referred to it as a mental vacation.

Sons of the Forest

The Endnight Games took us a bit back with this game. If you are a fan of adrenaline and want to feel as if you must survive through the game, Sons of Forest is the perfect game for you. This first-person game will take you on a journey of survival in the forest using only the tools you have on you. To make it more interesting, you will be able to hear everything around you clearly and will feel like you are physically in the forest.

Beware: you may feel paranoid while playing this game because you will always feel surrounded by the wilderness. The only way to survive is to use your instincts, build caves and woodsheds, and hunt for food. Sons of the Forest will truly take you a step back in history.

Broken Roads

The apocalypse is one of the most common themes of video games, and this is the case with Drop Bear Bytes’ new indie game.

You will be presented with a narrative that includes the post-apocalyptic setting in Australia, where you will be expected to survive and fight the enemies to get your everyday life back. In this game, you will have to think thoroughly about your actions and moves because they will all have consequences.

The most amazing thing about this game is that it will be available for PCs, Xbox, Playstation, and Switch – you can play it on any of the said devices. You can also learn plenty of things about philosophy, as there are multiple moral principles presented in the game. Your actions will show what your moral philosophy resembles the most. The developers have already shared design details that should provide information on how the game will feel.

Paleo Pines

One of the most relaxing indie games in 2023 is undoubtedly Paleo Pines. Developed by Italic Pig, this game is a life simulation with adorable dinosaurs as the main characters. You will fall in love with the graphics – the dinosaurs are presented as small, vulnerable creatures that need to make the Earth their home. If you want to relax your mind, we recommend trying Paleo Pines.

The game is about building and expanding your crops, but you will also be able to meet numerous dinosaur species and befriend them. You can collect these dinosaurs and make them your allies – there is nothing cuter than working with a small dinosaur and building your kingdom together.

Honorable mentions

Besides these titles, there are plenty of games to get excited about. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is one of them, promising a freewheeling experience in a unique metropolis. She Dreams Elsewhere is also a unique entry, promising a surreal RPG filled with adventures and a mind-bending story.

Most of these games will be available on Steam for you to enjoy. The prices are yet to be confirmed, but they will likely differ across the globe.

If you do not know, game distribution platforms tend to adjust prices according to players’ locations. Suppose you are stuck paying more just because of your location; then you should install a VPN for PC. A Virtual Private Network is a program that reroutes your traffic through servers in another city or country. Then, you can access popular gaming platforms to see whether the prices have changed.


The gaming community keeps on growing every day. If you like video games and want to try out the best indie games, the title in our list above will put a smile on your face. Many new games are set to release in 2023, but the previously mentioned ones are our favorites.

Star Sports sponsors new trainer Brian Toomey’s yard



Reading Time: 2 minutes


Former jockey who was pronounced dead for six seconds after a fall in 2013 has embarked on a new training career with some high-profile owners 

Star Sports is the new sponsor of Brian Toomey’s yard in Buckinghamshire.

The 34-year-old, who was forced to retire as a jockey after a horrific fall at Perth in 2013 which almost claimed his life, has embarked on his first full season as a trainer, based at Bowstridge Farm in Chalfont St Giles.

After being granted his trainer’s licence in October, he has already secured some high-profile owners, including Amo Racing, Clipper Logistics, Jimmy Fyffe and Jeff Smith. Harry Redknapp provided him with his first winner when Wake Up Harry won at Kempton on 20th December.

Toomey joins leading jockey Harry Skelton and recently retired legendary rider Davy Russell in Star Sports’ stable of racing ambassadors. He will provide regular updates on the yard’s runners, his views on the biggest races and meetings during the Flat season, and video content looking back at his career as a jockey, his recovery from the fall and life as a new trainer.

“Becoming a trainer has been a dream for a long time,” said Toomey. “My story is an unusual one and I know how lucky I am to be here.

“I’m hugely grateful to all the owners who have supported me at such an early stage of my career, my landlord at Bowstridge Farm as it’s such a brilliant place to train and now to my new sponsors, Star Sports.

“I’m looking forward to telling my story as a new trainer and updating Star Sports’ customers on our runners, as well as my views on the big races and issues in the industry.”

Luke Tarr, Head of PR at Star Sports, said: “Brian’s story is truly inspirational. To achieve what he has, both in his recovery from such a serious head injury and in his determined pursuit of a trainer’s licence, shows exactly what he is made of, and we are delighted to sponsor the yard.

“He has already attracted some massive owners and we’re excited to produce some top-quality content with Brian at the beginning of what we’re sure will be a very successful training career.”
