Japanese publisher Playism has been on a roll, providing all sorts of new indie experiences for gamers on every platform. Their latest Playism Game Show broadcast has shown off the company’s slate of new games for 2022.

First up, Bright Memory: Infinite’s first post-launch DLCs contains two new outfits for protagonist Shelia, with both pieces of DLC being available for free for a limited period around Lunar New Year, with further details to be announced soon.

For fans of run-and-gun side scrollers, Mighty Goose will be getting free DLC scheduled for release in Q1 2022. Players will be diving into the underwater depths of Planet Ceto to stop the evil Baron from destroying the planet.

Next up, La-Mulana 2: The Tower of Oannes DLC is available now on Steam, delivering the ultimate challenge on par with the original La-Mulana’s Hell Tower. So strap in for a test of extreme platforming skill.

The cult-classic sci-fi social deduction RPG from developer Petit Depotto, Gnosia, has been ported to the PC via Steam. Originally released on PlayStation Vita, the game was also ported to the Nintendo Switch last year.

Playism has also announced that they will be publishing Momodora: Moonlit Farewell on Steam, the fifth installment in the long-running 2D Metroidvania platformer series from developer Bombservice.

Players will assume the role of the divine priestess Momo, who seeks to save her people from demonic forces in the follow-up to Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight. Enjoy the most detailed art in a Momodora game to date, with more giant bosses and secrets to discover.

Tasomachi: Behind The Twilight, the gorgeous 3D exploration platformer set in a mysterious Far-Eastern world from Japanese game industry veteran Nocras, will be coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on April 28.

The Sealed Ampoule, the dungeon agriculturalization roguelike, will be coming to consoles on February 3. As the alchemist Irene, players will descend into a rundown dungeon to collect the resources beneath to turn a tidy profit. Irene must use what she finds in the dark depths to upgrade her abilities and upgrade the dungeon to maximize her earnings.

Playism Game Show also included the premieres of brand new games such as Homura Hime, Ahamkara by NIGORO, Samurai Bringer, and Magusphere, along with a new trailer for Noel the Mortal Fate.

The previously Japan-only games The Use Of Life and Takkoman -Kouzatsu World- will also be translated into English for global release, and Subway Midnight will be ported to consoles. Further information on release windows and consoles to come at a later date.
