In Knock Knock The Traveling Soulsman, you play as Dave Hill, a demon who is so bad at his job that the Devil is giving him a chance to collect five souls or he will lose his job in hell.

The graphics are great and I really enjoyed the game. I know this was done for the recent Ludum Dare 44 but I would love to play more of this, and hope it gets a full release version.

Mimik
PC
macOS
Linux
Google Play

Mimik is a platformer in which you play as a little slime. Probably one of the shortest gameplays I have done for an Indie Game Showcase, but in this playthrough it shows of what the game has and the music at least. The game currently has a kickstarter that is ending on May 18, 2019 AT 6:25 PM EDT and is looking to raise $4000 USD to fund their project.

Oh My Dirt!

Oh My dirt is a platformer in which you play as a window cleaner who appears to be paying back for a procedure that was done on his kid or partner, not 100% sure because the way they communicate is through chiptunes, which is pretty awesome, so it allows for you to make up your own story. You take the dirt from windows to bash baddies as well as collect coins to pay off the $3000 debt. The game also has an endless mode. The game is has a Kickstarter that ends June 4, 2019 at 7:01AM EDT and is looking to raise $2008 USD.

Mongrel
PC

Mongrel is a game for those who played Conker's Bad Fur Day. In Mongrel, you play as a frog who lives in a kingdom that looks to be predominately male and that all of those who are evil of the evil are flushed down a toliet to the unknown. One day, the king flushed the most evil of all down, and the evil being decided to take revenge after discovering a shrine of sorts. You as this frog are going to put an end to his evils deeds.
The game is interesting although I would love to be able to have full controller support. Some of the controls did not work for controller, but you can use keyboard and mouse as well. Adding the controller support would be awesome and make it more comfortable to play.

The game was on Kickstarter but sadly it did not reach its goal. There was talk of another campaign starting up. Here is the link to the campaign for you to view:
