INDIKA is now on Xbox and PlayStation

You probably saw the INDIKA hype as it launched on Steam just a few short weeks ago. Now it’s time for that strange, surreal, thought-provoking game to release on Xbox and PlayStation. 

INDIKA feels like one of those games that you must play at some point in your life. Working as a third person story-driven affair, it whisks us off to an alternate Russian land. It’s the turn of the XIX century; a time when religious ideas and reality clashes. 

INDIKA – a must-player?

Playable on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 – as well as on PC – INDIKA is certainly a weird old game. But it’s so weird that you’ll not want to miss what Odd Meter and 11 bit studios have put together, dropping you into the life and times of a nun heading off on a spirtual journey. 

Promising to be pretty deceptive, you’ll be left to try and uncover the true purpose of life, doing so as multiple gameplay elements merge. That means you should expect to find puzzles in INDIKA, as well as a bit of platforming, and some storytelling like no other.

Inspired by the arthouse works of Yorgos Lanthimos, Ari Aster, and Darren Aronofsky, this is a game that focuses on its core purpose touching on philosophical beliefs and aiming to provoke reflection on delicate themes.

Pretty much anything and everything goes as INDIKA release on Xbox and PlayStation. And for that £20.99 asking price, we reckon you’re going to find a game that covers a ton of bases. We’ll be sure to let you know as our full review drops but we’ve already had this included in our ‘Best Games for May‘ article, so hopes are high.

Edit: That full review of Indika on Xbox is live.

Buy now!

For now, get a copy of INDIKA on your hard drive by paying a visit to the Xbox Store. You can then play on Xbox Series X|S. This is however a current-gen only release, so don’t expect to be playing INDIKA on Xbox One. 

Alternatively, the Steam page or PlayStation Store will sort you out. 

INDIKA Description

INDIKA is a third-person, story-driven game set in a strange world where religious visions clash with harsh reality. It tells the story of a young nun who sets off on a journey of self-discovery with the most unusual, horn-headed companion by her side. On the outside, Indika seems to be a typical nun attempting to adjust to a difficult and monotonous monastery life. Humble and innocent in her appearance, do not be deceived as this young girl has also made a highly unlikely acquaintance—as she speaks with the devil himself. Indika’s unusual connection with the Evil One leads her on an errand beyond the safe walls of the monastery. The world she discovers can only be described as a wild combination of comedy and tragedy straight out of the novels by Dostoyevski and Bulhakov.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
