Dark Horses of 2022 - Best Upcoming Obscure Games That May Surprise Us

Every year brings productions whose success is prophesied long before their release. But in this article, we talk about their opposites. What gaming surprises await in 2022?

The Invincible

  1. Genre: adventure game
  2. Release date: 2022
  3. Developer: Starward Industries
  4. Why it can surprise? Experienced developers tackle a hard-sci-fi classic from one and only Stanislaw Lem

The reputation of Polish gamedev deteriorated a bit following the premiere of Cyberpunk 2077. Starward Industries studio will try to redeem some of it, as a studio consisting of former Techland and CD Projekt RED employees. The Invincible is based on the novel by Stanislaw Lem under the same title. Given the great popularity of the late, Polish writer in the world, we can witness one of the biggest game premieres of 2022.

We will play the role of Yasna. The woman lands on the planet Regis III to find the crew members of her ship. The retro-futuristic setting of the game assumes that the digital revolution never happened, and every piece of tech we'll use will be analog. This – combined with the unique style and genre of retro-futuristic thrillers – promises The Invincible to be something special. Only the gameplay seems to follow the standards of adventure games focused on exploring and solving puzzles.

Started writing about games on the SquareZone website. Later, he wrote and managed the non-existent PSSite.com, and currently runs his own blog about games. He hasn't yet written a text that he would be 100% satisfied with. He started his adventure with games at the age of 3, when he managed to convince his father to buy a C64 computer. The love for electronic entertainment awakened by Flimbo's Quest blossomed during the first adventures with Heroes of Might & Magic, reaching its peak after purchasing the first PlayStation. As he grew older, he had more encounters with Nintendo portable consoles, and also returned to the PC as an additional gaming platform. He collects games and is a fan of emulation.
