April has been a pretty good month for gaming and a host of new games have been released. This includes a range of amazing titles such as Outlast 2 and Yooka-Laylee which have taken the limelight away from some quality indie titles which have been released this month. As you might have missed these games, we decided to create a handy list of games you’ll probably want to take a look at.
