Thanks for pointing that out! I have a quite relaxed criteria (so to speak) when I'm deciding if I should include a game or not, so there are games that are not exactly indies and I include them because either they or the companies making them are small enough or not known enough (which is not the case with the ones you mentioned lol).

But I'm open to suggestions and have no problems taking games off the list. Why do you think those you mentioned don't fit here?

Maybe they do fit :)  (have no idea about studios behinde them, or costs of developement or team sizes) (cba to go look things up)

I just think those games stand out, from the others.
Ei. their better, and have done better (I assume, in terms of sales), simply because their quality is very high.

Disco Elysium is fantastic.

I do a quick search when I have doubts about it, but sometimes there's not much information or I'm in the fence about including a certain game or not, so I can't guarantee that all the games are 100% good fits here, and that's why I appreciate feedback.

And it's very true that those games stand out over the rest. I have kind of a non-written rule regarding that: if a game has become a saga or a franchise, I only include up to the second installment, but no more than that, because I assume that by that point they're too well-known. So if there's ever a Little Nightmares III or one more follow-up to Subnautica, I'll more than probably leave those out.

Oh, and I just wishlisted Disco Elysium.

Interesting thread. I find a lot of indie gems slip through the cracks. One of the reasons is some of them have a niche appeal.

Thanks! That's exactly the purpose of this: giving visibility both to very good indie games that deserve its own spotlight and to potential gems that could go easily under the radar because of the lack of marketing, or being too niche or any other reason. There are lots of games that simply go unnoticed.

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).
