Coming up: The games of April 2022

April is in full swing, and game releases are about to pick up a bit. That includes a bunch of nice-looking Indies, and a few Star Wars games to boot.

April showers

Well, actually don’t expect a deluge of games this month. At least, not big name ones. What there are though, are a few indie releases to keep an eye on, with a couple of larger ones mixed-in.

Names to watch are B.I.O.T.A. and Turbo Overkill in the indie arena. Both “retro” titles, but are radically different games otherwise, with the former being an action/platformer and the latter being an FPS. The two are looking terrific though, in their own ways, and seem like possible sleeper hits.

Then there are the bigger names. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed makes a comeback in remastered form this month, along with the legendary Chrono Cross. That’s in addition to Chernobylite’s next-gen debut. And finally, there’s a game that’s already out there, with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. That came out last week, and is available for… pretty much everything.

Here are your notables for April ’22:


  • Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition – Switch
  • Forgive Me Father – PC


  • After the Fall: Frontrunner Edition – PSVR
  • 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim – Switch


  • Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Switch


  • Chernobylite – PS5, Xbox Series X|S


  • Zombie Army 4: Dead War – Switch


  • Tormented Souls – Switch
