One of the best indie games from 2021, Death’s Door is a difficult game due to the composition of its levels. Nonetheless, it is nothing that hardcore action RPG lovers won’t be able to complete. The game features classic dungeon puzzle solving with fast-paced combat encounters and a sound design that keeps players on the edge.


Support for Dreams will be discontinued from September onwards as stated by Media Molecule. That doesn’t mean the PlayStation exclusive isn’t worth checking out though. The game creation tool has a staggering library of user-created content, similar to Roblox, and the community is expected to expand in the foreseeable future. Dreams is a game where imagination runs wild and players can get to play unique games.
