Haven't played anything new since Pseudoregalia and I still have to beat Frogun, but there have been a couple I've caught on occasion coming up for release that could be cool.  One of them I just saw looks great, as it's a throwback to that Goldeneye/Perfect Dark era of FPS games.  Hopefully this is good with Agent 64: Spies Never Die...

Cavern of Dreams if you liked the N64 era platformers/collectathons.

I picked that one up, haven't played it yet, and another I grabbed is Corn Kidz 64, which I also haven't played yet.  I'm gonna likely get through Spider-Man 2 this week and then spend the rest of the month playing a few of these games I've got stocked up.

Poked around both Cavern of Dreams and Corn Kidz 64, just to give them a look and they seem okay.  They nail the aesthetics, but sorta feel like they adhere a little too close in gameplay to their PS1/N64 roots, and not entirely in a great way.  Corn Kidz camera is a little wonky, being a little close to the character and then having moments where it auto-adjusts based on like a big jump you do, but it's clunky.  Gameplay is good, it's functionally very similar to Banjo-Kazooie to me along with that sorta goofy tone too.  Cavern of Dreams sorta suffers with a little camera wonkyness, gameplay is okay, I played a tad less of this, but could be okay.

I definitely feel like if someone is making a low poly throwback, that they should really try and take advantage of a modern camera system.  I've actually been going back to replay Banjo-Kazooie very casually on Switch, and they move the C Button cameras to the analog and it kinda creates its own issues, and really, the camera controls aren't not a nostalgic fondness I have, they were a choice due to the limitations of the time, and they can be worked with, but boy do I wish either of these played more like Pseudoregalia with how amazing that feels to play and control lol

I don't know if you like racing games, but there are Hotshot Racing, Formula Retro Racing and Horizon Chase Turbo.
BattleBit Remastered for FPS but it's multiplayer.

Cavern of Dreams if you liked the N64 era platformers/collectathons.

I was also going to recommend it lol.

I just saw this on Twitter, might want to give Crow Country a look over once it comes out. Demo is on Steam right now and is supposed to come out next year. Looks a lot like FF7/RE1.

I had actually seen the Corn Kidz 64 Steam page not so long ago and somehow forgot to mention it. Both have their charm; I think they nailed the aesthetic.

Just came across Worldless and it caught my eye, so I thought I might as well share it with you.

I also found about Loddlenaut a couple of days ago; it seems to be about a 5hr game based on one of the reviews. Not sure if it's your type of game, but I figured I might as well mention it.

Return seems like another good one, although you might already know about it since it's been out since May.

Two of those aren't really the right game for here, but they both seem neat.  Loddlenaut seems like a nice time, might be something to check out.

FORZA POLPO!

Yeah, I know, my bad. It was late at night and I just wanted to share those two sort of as bonuses to Loddlenaut; I guess I could've just mentioned them last, instead.

Pseudoraglia just came out, I wrote more on it in my 52 Games post, but it's good, the 3D platformer mobility features feel really great.  It has some rough edges, but for only 5 bucks, I can't complain too much, it feels like a real passion project for the dev.

Just came back to this thread to make sure this was mentioned.

Me as well. I just finished watching Game Maker's Toolkit's latest video about their preferred pick for 2023's most innovative game, and Pseudoregalia is shown as an honorable mention. Watching its gameplay I thought, hey, I know some people who'd probably be into that. Glad to see it's on people's radar.

I went ahead and threw it in my cart along with Baldur's Gate 3, and I'm gonna tryo t play it sooner rather than later.

I love low poly video games more than HD games, PS1 is (one) of my favorite eras, but I do not like shareware demos no matter how many I got as a child, on 4 discs of 1500.

yea the RAM really didn't work so good in the 1990's and my 8GB still does not work correctly all the time in my current machine either.

too bad the king bad almighty can shoot his puke more then 10,000 light years from the old earth huh? ha-ha, and that person is not even a user of this website at all and probably never was and never will ever be.

yup he tried too, and the scratch is where he tried to make my type.
