OP updated with the first highlights of this month, which will be sharing the spotlight with the highlights of July until September. The full list of July releases is included in this post, and I will short-cut it for quick access, so that this information can be checked even when it's no longer in the OP. Also, since I actually changed the format of this thread from a series of them to a long-running one, I'm going to include in this post a link to the previous ones, so that those games don't get totally lost and are as easily accessible as all the others.

But before that, a quick overview: there's been a total of 277 releases as of July 31, of which 68 have a minimum score of 75 in Metacritic. As for August, indies seem to like this month, because it starts with a lot of releases (41); more than any other previous month at the same point, more than the whole months of January, April and July, and almost the same amount than the whole months of February and June. The full raw list is the following:

I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).
