You probably know of Super Rare Games as one of the finest providers of physical game media across the world. Well now they are expanding, with Super Rare Originals.
Looking to support indie developers in a way that promises to be industry changing, Super Rare Originals is a new indie-first publishing label that will be bringing titles to both console and PC.
It’s been born out of the power of Super Rare Games and their physical side, with Originals more focused on pushing out some cracking little indie games to the world. They’ve moved forward with a decent start too, with five game reveals that will be coming in under the arm…
Grapple Dog – PC via Steam with more platforms to be confirmed:
Grapple Dog is an exhilarating 2D pixel-art platformer from pixel art veteran Joseph Gribbin. Use your awesome grappling hook to clear tricky challenges as Pablo, the Grapple Dog! Sail across 6 colourful worlds with a crew of fearless adventurers to stop the robotic overlord Nul from destroying the world!
Post Void – console:
POST VOID is a challenging arcade style first-person shooter with one objective: be fast. Move forward and keep your idol filled with liquid by getting kills. Each run will be a little bit different with procedurally generated levels. Keep your head full and reach the end; Kill what you can to see it mend; Get the high score or try again.
The Gecko Gods – PC via Steam with other platforms to be announced:
Explore a mysterious island as a tiny lizard. Complete ancient puzzles, effortlessly climb cliffs and eat bugs as you make your way across an island civilization lost to time.

Lone Ruin – PC via Steam, others TBA:
From the creator of Hell is Other Demons comes Lone Ruin, a spell-based roguelike twin-stick shooter with tons of replayability.

Dive deeper and deeper, battling your way through twisted creatures, utilising your very own magic abilities to ultimately reach the bottom of the Lone Ruin.

Completely Stretchy is a short, first-person surreal and cartoony experience.
