A youtuber named Razbuten has made a video about some indie recommendations he has to give. I think his list is quite interesting:

I have CrossCode on my list for a while now, but recently learned more about Wildermyth, and that too looks right up my alley.

As he only shortly mentions it, as he did a bigger video on the game: A short Hike is also a fabulous game. I recently got it and played it, and it is quite a surprisingly great gaming experience.

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I think I'm done , BTW I'm trying to remember a 3DS exclusive indie game featuring naked what ever creature with leaf covering privates and using his towel as attack It's japanese but came to american eshop on 3DS exclusively . I don't consider Cave games indie.

Katana Zero. Katana Zero. Katana Zero.

Oh, and Risk System.

Around the Network

Apart form the well known ones like Hollow Knight, Stardew Valley and Golf Story, I really enjoyed The Messenger.

Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I'm am just going to constantly promote Death's Door. It's the best indie game I've played in a while. Definitely worth the price.

From the list I picked Obra Dinn. One indie I like that I don't think gets talked about is The Wild at Heart.


Indies I really liked:

Dead Cells
Axiom Verge
Bug Fables
Hyper Light Drifter
The Messenger
Katana Zero
Into the Breach
Hollow Knight
The Banner Saga 1-3
A Short Hike
Super Meat Boy
The House in Fata Morgana
Stick Fight The Game
SteamWorld Dig 1-2
SteamWorld Heist
Shovel Knight Treasure Trove
All Shantae games

Ok that's enough. I love indies.
