Good Indie-Games?

Post by Paragon-Yoshi on Wed May 01, 2013 10:57 am

Since I am more and more getting into the Indie-fanbase, I might as well enter digital shopping and get some gems.

Are they any indie-games that you recommend?
I would like to see some great games. Extra Smile

I always enjoy a good indie game. A few I can think of off the top of my head:

* Aquaria
An excellent underwater action adventure, equal parts exploration and relaxation. If you took Ecco the Dolphin and gave it the Metroid / Zelda treatment, you'd have this game which rivals even the big fish in the gaming industry.

* Bastion
Very stylized 3/4 view action game with pristine presentation value. Plenty of weapons and skills to tinker around with in a smooth, satisfying combat system Self-imposed challenges/handicaps lend itself to a dynamic difficulty that makes the whole experience as breezy or brutal as you like.

* Super Meat Boy
A basic yet well-refined platformer that starts off simple enough, but only gets harder... and harder still. Highly addicting, and plenty of user-made bonus levels in case you somehow tire of the massive main game 7,000+ deaths later.

* Braid
* World of Goo
An excellent pair of puzzle games. Words alone can't really do them justice. Besides, I'm running out of unique descriptions for all these, eheh.


And these are just amongst the indie games that I've played. There's still so many out there that look well worth a try. I'd say ask around or take a look for yourself. Steam in particular has a great indie catalog that's always growing. You never know what you'll discover Smile

^ Minecraft would definitely count. Dunno about the rest, but Bastion's tempting me to try the demo on Steam.

There's Fez coming to the PC as well. The co-creator is a complete jerkwad, but that doesn't make the game he created with the rest of the team any less special, from what I hear at least. It'd probably be a good idea to check out videos of that.

Also, if you're into sandbox games, and have a pretty solid PC rig, FromDust is a very interesting concept that plays out quite nicely on the PSN demo. The PC port isn't properly optimized, but it is also on the PSN now if you'd prefer playing it on your PS3.
