What are some good indie games /v/?

Just finished this, expected 2deep4u retro shit but it was a really tight game with some nice tunes.
>>
>>272989134
What are you looking for?
Challenge?
Unique gameplay?
Just something interesting and unusual?

I'm not really sure what to recommend unless you give me a better idea than "good". I could probably name a number of indie games that are good for various reasons, but that doesn't mean you'd like them just because of that.
>>
>>272989134
oh shit i'm sorry
>>
>>272989134
Papers please
Super Hexagon
Shovel Knight
>>
>>272990453
Sorry for what? Our daddy taught us not to be ashamed of our dicks. Specially cause they're such good size an' all.
>>
Rogue Legacy
Electronic Super Joy
Organ Trail
Retro City Rampage
Volgarr the Viking
Closure
Braid
Thomas Was Alone
Knytt Underground
Shovel Knight
Lone Survivor

There's tons of good ones, but this is all I can think of right now.
>>
>>272990620
Derp, Binding of Isaac. Probably the best one.
>>
People already mentioned some of the better ones.


Offspring Fling
Bastion
>>
>The Battle for Wesnoth
Turn-based strategy game.
Similar to Fire Emblem & Advance Wars.
It's open-source and has huge replayability.

>Monaco: What's Yours is Mine
4 player co-op heist game. Pacman meets Metal Gear Solid. If you like the movie "Ocean's Eleven" where they rob a casino, you'll love this game.
>>
>>272990620
Retro City Rampage was fucking shit
>>
>>272990895
Wow, your unwarranted opinion is such a good contribution to the thread. Thank you.

TBoI and Rebirth
Risk of Rain
Toribash
FTL

Just a few of my favorites
>>
>>272991025
Castle Crashers and Super Meat Boy.
And like, everything else Edmund McMillan has worked on.
Seriously, the guy is consistently great.
>>
>>272991205
Didn't mean to reply.
>>
Binding of Isaac
Don't Starve
FTL
Rogue Legacy
Bastion
Shovel Knight
Papers, Please
Hotline Miami
Terraria
Risk of Rain


Was Mark of the Ninja indie? Was pretty solid.
>>
The similar retro themed and adrenaline-pumped music to vvvvvv would be Super Hexagon.

The indie games I highly recommend are:
>Hotline Miami (Sequel is coming out; hyped)
>FTL
>Papers, Please
>Terraria (A lot of fun playing by yourself, and crazy fun with friends)
>Risk of Rain
>Binding of Isaac (I suggest waiting for the Rebirth edition to be on sale)
>Don't Starve (Free multiplayer patch is coming)
>Starbound loljk
>>
>>272989134
Freedom Planet
>>
>>272991606
I honestly don't see what everyone's beef with Starbound is.
Yeah, okay, the devs gave up, but still if you pirate it it's still a pretty decent game.
>>
>>272991839
Because it was hyped as the next terraria for years, and instead we got a empty pile of shit game, with dungeons that serve no purpose, and a boring progression system.
>>
>>272990593
Yeah, I see that. Your daddy gave you good advice.
>>
>>272991970
so basically minecraft?
>>
La-Mulana
>>
>>272989134
Is this game good?

not sure I'f I might like it.
>>
>>272992448
Gravity puzzles.
>>
>>272992487

Yeah I see that but it still looks like a simple game.
>>
>>272992448
It's really good, if you're into the kind of gameplay it has.
It's got a free demo on Steam, I'd recommend giving it a shot.

It's also short as fuck, though. My first non-100% playthrough took just about 2 hours.
>>
Iji
>>
>>272991970
But it isn't even done yet. Why does EVERYONE fail to understand that games take a LONG FUCKING TIME to make? Early Access games just let you get to watch that long (boring-ass and unfulfilling) process.
>>
>>272992729
Dude, stop. It hasn't been updated in like, 2 years, the developers have fucked off.
Face it, Starbound is dead.
>>
>>272992594
It's most definitely not.

Post indie games that aren't from steam.

...

Those are not indie games.
>>
>>272994081
...

How do you figure they aren't?
>>
>>272994127
Because they are not made by independant developers.

They are made by companies.
>>
>>272992989
>mfw all that music
>>
>>272994018
The ones you posted aren't that good, though.
>>
>>272994325

>>
>>272994198
They were made by independent developers though. For example Square funded, developed and published Chrono Trigger independently.
>>
La Mulana
Mark of the Ninja
Amnesia

Those are my favourites, disappointed that no one ever mentions them in these threads despite the fact that they're all fairly popular.

Renegade-X

>>272994423
Fire Emblem was published by Nintendo, e.g.
It just looks like a list of games you like, really.

>>272994510
It's weird, yeah. I guess it's assumed most people on /v/ have played those already.
>>
>>272994669
>Fire Emblem was published by Nintendo
And developed by Nintendo too. Independent, you see.

>It just looks like a list of games you like, really.
Yes, that seems to be the point of the thread. Posting indie games you like.

>>
>>272989134
Valdis Story.
Gunpoint.
>>
>>272994813
Yeah, sorry about that. Read Intelligent Systems and didn't notice they were part of Nintendo.
You're still kind of being anal about the subject, though. You know what OP meant by "indie", and I think everybody here has already figured out indie and independent have come to mean slightly different things these past few years. You're not opening anybody's eyes, if anything you're just flaunting your knowledge of something obvious.
>>
>>272995261
I went through first 3 like levels and got bored.
Will it offer more variety or it's always a "shoot a boring magic into the boring enemies and get a boring powerups on levelup"?
>>
>>272995439
I haven't actually played it but that's pretty much it I think. Kind of like a Serious Sam but with permadeath and different characters.

Indie games, I assumed.

>have come to mean slightly different things these past few years
I always thought indie means indie. Indie not meaning indie would be pretty damn stupid and I don't feel the need to act stupid just because there are some ignorant people out there.

>you're just flaunting your knowledge of something obvious
Flaunting? OP made a request and I tried to help him.
>>

>I am a boring pedantic cunt

We get it nigga, jesus christ.
>>
>>272995994
You came in to a thread recommending games that everyone and their fucking grandma has heard of to make a really fucking inane point.

You are being pedantic and you are a boring cunt.

We get it, they're technically indie games. But when someone asks for an FPS you don't say Doom.
>>
>>272996181
>inane point!
>pedantic!
I didn't come to make a point. I came to list good indie games, as OP requested. If that's inane, you shouldn't even be in this thread. It's not my fault that you're simply less intelligent than grade schooler, people have to spoonfeed things to your retarded ass, and when they do you find it pedantic somehow.

>someone asks for an FPS you don't say Doom
You do, if you consider Doom a good FPS game.
>>
>>272989134

Streets of Rage Remake. And it's free.
>>
>>272993174

This game is sick. It's balls hard and I can't actually beat it but I had a ton of fun with it

>>272993907

you are one of history's most distinguished annoying retards

>>272996474
>You do, if you consider Doom a good FPS game.

God you're a fucking moron.

>I want a sports game!

God, you're a fucking moron.

The only really good thing about rogue legacy are the super bosses.

Which is ironic because by their very definition they betray the core tenet of the game.

I can't fucking beat the super version of the fire one that chases you around and leaves balls of fire behind.

It was already mentioned, but 1001 Spikes is the best platformer I've played for years. Absolutely recommend picking it up (you get a discount on steam if you already own Cave Story+)
