Indie games have come a long way. And 2016 might be the year when they go epic!
It used to be the case that indie games were very small scale. Often made by very small teams or one man studios, indie games used to be cheaply priced titles for a niche market. You could usually tell if a game was “indie” just by looking at the game’s trailer. There were exceptions but they were usually few and far between.
Not anymore! We are only a few months into 2016 and we have already seen indie games go for broke! 2016 could be the year when indie games go mass and become almost indistinguishable from big studio games.
Here are a few major indie releases that have really been catapulted into the limelight! And the best thing about them? They are breakthrough titles from relatively unknown small studios.
A highly stylised minimalist first-person shooter with a unique “time moves only when you do” mechanic.
No Man’s Sky
A game of epic proportions. No Man’s Sky is a game about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated galaxy.
It’s certainly going to be an exciting year for indie games!
