The Indie Kickstarter Watch is back for 2022. Every month (except last month because of the holidays), we bring you some indie games that are looking for financial backing from people who love to celebrate independent games.
Before you check out this month’s projects to watch, here are the projects from December’s Kickstarter Watch that reached their funding goals.
Now onto more indies that need your help!
Furquest is a cute, cosy RPG full of fun minigames and wholesome characters to meet!
Throughout your quest, you’ll explore, fight monsters, play games, and, most importantly: help people and make friends! Friendship is actually the meat and potatoes of the whole game, with who you make friends with directly influencing the story and resulting in drastically different endings.
Goal: $10,000 by February 7

Orbital Cargo Division is a humorous pixel-art sci-fi adventure game about a freighter crew arriving at a seemingly abandoned space station. It’s inspired by the Space Quest series and other adventure games.

Affinity Sorrow is a new and original 16-bit classic top-down RPG (Role Playing Game) with turn-based combat in development for the SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive Consoles.

Ignis Universia is an epic mix of JRPG and Visual Novel with a seasoning of tongue-in-cheek story and a hefty dose of loving homage (which must be good because it sounds like a cheese).

Goal: €9,850 by February 26
