Looking for a new unique indie game

#1falcon182Posted 5/8/2014 2:49:16 PM
So lately after selling my PS3 I've been back into PC gaming, and so far I've extremely enjoyed games like Bastion, Braid and Gaucamelle. Granted I spend most of my time on PC playing Dark Souls 2; but after discovering The Swapper my appreciation for indie games has skyrocketed. That anxiety provoking loneliness, brain twisting puzzling, pretty cool storyline, and full metroidvania experience, I have to say it's the greatest indie game I've ever played.

I'm hoping someone could suggest something new and fresh to inject into that line-up, something that might wow me like the swapper, or even just ejoyable and original like Bastion. I enjoy puzzles if they're done well, but genre isn't as important as the experience. Something to break up the monotony from rage quitting Dark Souls 2 pvp often enough :).

Dust:An Elysian Tail is fun.

Papo & Yo is Journey 2.0. Everything Journey should have been.

its like Myst meets FEZ.
some people treat life as a game,
some people treat games as life.

Definitely Mark of the Ninja for one of the best stealth/platforming games around; FTL for a great spaceship-based rogue-lite experience; Don't Starve for a great nature/survival romp; and obviously Mount & Blade: Warband for the best medieval RPG in town (I love throwing Warband in just to ruffle all those feathers who say it's not an indie, when it technically is).
. . . methodical, exacting, and worst of all, patient.

For a real shocker when the game retailed the disc said "Disc 1" on it. The game was so hard it killed it's own second disc. -CammyApple on Nocturne

That's a freebie now. The guy decided he didn't want to keep updating it so he pulled it off steam and made it free.

I had a lot of fun with Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet.
