Default The Indie game thread

Instead of starting a thread for every dumb indie game out there that is awesome, i figure we can try this out.


----------------------

Just downloaded The Stanley Parable.

$11.99
Currently 20% off on Steam.

I don't want to give this game away. Just play it. It's a ton of fun. Lots of fun, for a long time. Achievement hunters this one is for you too(lol).





These two images sum up the game pretty well. That's all i'll say.

If you're questioning the game, just try the demo it's free!!

No? Just me? I guess i'm the only cheap *** playing these games.

Well ive got another one i like.

Antichamber:



Steam for $20
Antichamber on Steam

This is another mind game, it really screws with you. It's a game you can load up and appreciate, because you know someone actually put a thought or two into the making of the game. It makes you think. It's not just mindless running around shooting a gun aimlessly like a brain dead parrot.

Im pretty stuck in antichamber

Heres a couple good ones:

Faster Than Light (FTL):



Its like a Star Trek simulation RPG where you travel through star systems dealing with different scenarios and battling other ships.

Dear Esther:



Most people wouldnt really call this a game, Id say its like a visual novel. I cant really say much without ruining it.
I thought it was incredible, some would think it was boring.

Yeah. Now Play the game.

+1 on dear ester. I went into it blind and hated it, until i understood what was going on. Ended up liking it.


** I'd only buy these games when / if they're on sale.

I'll probably buy the stanley parable when its on sale again - back at full price now. The demo was actually pretty damn entertaining.

Edit: **** a whole lot of slendermann. I downloaded the original years ago and only played it like 3 times, i really did not like how scary it was. no fun.

Amnesia on the other hand I put hours into. Still never finished it, got stuck on some stupid puzzle.

My favorite indie game right now is Cookie Clicker. It's the dumbest game you can't stop playing.

When I first saw you post I was gonna reply with antichamber but I guess it slipped my mind. FTL is the **** also.

The Swapper is very cool. The visuals are pretty cool and it plays kinda like Portal mixed with Metroid.
I need to play more of it but I have so much other **** to play I haven't gotten back to it.

Wow.

Crowdfunding game... I'd consider it somewhat Indie.
They make some pretty big claims, we'll see if it ever pans out.
