Omori by Omocat
EDIT- NEW 2017 TRAILER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV0B...ature=youtu.be
OMORI is a surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game. You must travel between two worlds, both welcoming, both concealing the same secrets. Meet new (old) people, fight new (old) enemies, explore your own memories, and uncover some hidden truths along the way (although you wish you hadn't.) When the time comes, you can only choose one.
Which world is more real? You decide, I guess.
There should be a new trailer in the coming month so hopefully we can see even more of this game. It's Earthbound inspired horror and it's looking incredibly interesting.

Glitched by En House Studios
GLITCHED is a mystery and exploration RPG coming to PC, Mac, and Linux. The game features traditional turn based combat with a little bit of spice but will primarily focus on the story and how you change it. This will be done through the ESSENCE SYSTEM, which will track a player's personality and morality. After a glitch appears in the world of SOREN, our unexpected hero, Gus, will become aware of you- the player. Experience fourth wall breaking shenanigans while making decisions that will shape this world
Expecting it in 2018 but interesting enough to keep eyes on.
Indivisible by Lab Zero
Lab Zero is proud to announce our new action/RPG, currently titled Indivisible.
Indivisible is inspired by classics like Valkyrie Profile and Super Metroid, but with the unique character, world, and gameplay depth Lab Zero is known for, and will feature a stunning soundtrack by legendary Japanese game music composer, Hiroki Kikuta.
Only non-turn based one I'm posting cause it looks fantastic.
Any other interesting JRPG inspired indie games that I'm missing? Any of these that you are excited for?
