Our top picks from the eastasiasoft Summer 2023 Showcase

Last Monday, eastasiasoft premiered their biggest Summer Showcase yet, spotlighting a veritable smorgasbord of hype-worthy indie games that are set to launch in the coming months across consoles and PC. No matter what your indie flavour of choice is, there’ll be something in this line-up for you to get excited about.  

A whopping 21 titles were mentioned alongside this chock-full 13-minute showcase. Here are our highlights!

Chaos Galaxy

Take charge on the interstellar battlefield in this upcoming tactical combat adventure.

The Great Galactic Empire has collapsed under the sudden impact of alien contact, and civil war has broken out. Choose to play as one of 14 unique factions – or even the Empire itself. Take control of the battle map to manage your commanders, strategically deploy warships and mechas, and negotiate with rival factions.
