Nuclear Throne

Roguelike video game is a go-to formula for many indie gamers because it is fun and received well by casual gamers and hardcore gamers alike. Originally released on desktop OS like Windows and OS X, it was subsequently released on PS4 and Vita in 2015. Be warned though, this game is TOUGH. Once you die, there is no continuation. You start over. From zero.

If you are one of the fortunate ones to have your hands on the Rift or Oculus, then Eden Star will immerse you in a whole different world. The downside to the game is lack of content.

Desktop Dungeons

Innovative game that allows you to play on multiple devices and platforms, Desktop Dungeon combines the best elements of roguelike dungeon crawler with up to 20 classes to unlock and play with, as well as endless amounts of quests and puzzles that will make your eyes spin out of sockets.

Castle Story

Gamers with inclination towards strategy and world-building needs to look no more. Adventure is the focus on this indie game that is somewhat similar to Minecraft but not quite. Your avatar is a nifty little entity known as Briktrons and your job is to build something. Anything. Get your imagination run while and participate in unique multiplayer co-op experience offered.

Journal

Adventure indie games are tough to master. Masterpieces like Grim Fandango and Machinarium have set a high bar and it is up to independent game developers to clear it with consistency. However, for gamers, that has not been the case. Journal is a bit of a disappointing entry into the foray of indie games. Winner of Indie Cade selection in 2013 and Notgames-fest in 2013, Journal is a fun game to run through but left players yearning for more in the storyline as well as atmosphere of the world it attempted to create.

Broforce

If you choose to play one game on this list, then go with Broforce. You will not be disappointed. Touted by many game critics as ‘must-play-event’, Broforce is a culmination of all the top gameplay elements of action platformer.

Pig Eat Ball

Little oink-y piggy needs to eat! And eat a lot…of balls. This super hyper game that looks like pac-mac on steroids is all the rage.

This wholesome game is friendly to all age-groups and mother approved.

Contraption Maker

A game that must be played with friends to be truly enjoyed. Sure, you can play this by yourself but why would you want to?

Contraption Maker brings back all that cool stuffs found in TIM, and updates it to the modernity.
