Some nice looking games there. Gonna start with Soulstone Survivors and take a look at a few others.

Some interesting looking games I came across (will keep it updated):

Thirsty Suitors looks hilarious and fun!

Scars Above’s trailer reminded me of The Dig.

PS: How can nearly every single genre have a “Dating Sim” sub category???

I’ve just played the demo of Forever Skies and I am absolutely sold on the game. It reminds me a bit of Subnautica despite being the total opposite of being underwater! You are in an “alien” environment, scavenging items so you can fabricate tools and appliances to help you survive. You get to build and customise your airship as you use it to travel around the post-apocalyptic world. You battle against infections, finding the right antidotes from the natural environment. Very cool!
