Hollow Knight, it's just so good at everything it does
My favorite indie game is Pathfinder: Kingmaker!

A perfect melding of Baldur's Gate, and Divinity original sin!

Noita, because of its huge quantity of secrets and easter eggs... and also for the fun gameplay :)
Slay the Spire - great card battle game that requires you to get creative in planning out a possible deck you want to build for the run but have adaptability to change things up based on the cards you get, also offers plenty of choice on how you reach the goal with plenty of risk reward situations that either challenge your skill or your chances.
Stasis, for it's great horror/sci-fi atmosphere.
The Way. what a wonderful amazing experience. It ticks all the boxes for me. The pixelated retro style graphics are very detailed, sharp and charming. They fit the game perfectly and make me feel as if I am playing a spiritual successor of Flashback. The puzzles are varied and more importantly FUN. The musical score is very nice and appropriate. The story is deep and engaging and finally the controls and gameplay are interesting, intuitive and well implemented. I replayed it several times and it still has the same charm and effect on me.
Slay the Spire --- because you don't argue with a game that has entertained you for more than 500 hours... and counting.

A superb deckbuilding roguelike, perfectly balanced to be both challenging and fair. And with all due respect to the many games that claim to resemble it, I have not found even one where this comparison is really warranted. At the moment, it's truly one of a kind.

I have two indie games I like Hollow Knight and Iconoclasts. They are great games and I like them a lot. I have Iconoclasts on both PC and PS4 and I like to play it on both PC and PS4.


really like mythology and roguelikes.
Imo amazing art.
Mark of the Ninja

I love stealth games, and this one does it so right and on 2D!!

It allows players to play as an assassin ninja or be merciful.
For me, being able to ghost through the levels without killing anyone is such a great, challenging and rewarding experience.
Taking my time planing how I will pass through the guards without them noticing or raising any alarm is pure joy.

The visuals, the story, the use of light, the level design, the increasing difficulty along the way are all top notch.

And now excuse me while I boot this game up again...
Stardew Valley, a great game even without the story. It received years of support, has hundreds of hours of gameplay fir under $20. I purchased it twice, GOG 2nd time and put over 30 hours on it via GOG as is, over 100 on Steam.
Stardew Valley. Mostly done by one person (doesn't get more indie than that!), super charming, loads of stuff to do, really satisfying gameplay loop, available in nearly all platforms (Windows/Linux, mobile, consoles, etc). It's a wholesome, excellent game overall.

Runner-up (for somewhat similar reasons) would be Terraria.
Shovel Knight is the kind of a treasure trove that keeps on giving. It rekindled my passion for 2d retro platformers like no other game. Every single one of its expansions is a game of its own, very worthy of anyone's time. Yummy!

Btw there are many indies that I like as I mostly play just indies and classics nowadays. They pretty much saved me years ago from burning out and slaving away in some hamster-wheel mmo, or always the same AAA sequel of a sequel's sequel. Yucky!
