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 :).
Well, I've played a lot of indie games, and I think I may know of a few that are somewhat like The Swapper.
Kairo Antichamber FRACT OSC Spate (similar art style and feelings of isolation, with very simplistic platforming and puzzle-solving. I highly recommend this practically unheard of game that released a couple months back without getting any dues)
Some of my favorites that aren't anything like The Swapper:
Super Meat Boy VVVVVV Hotline Miami Spelunky The Binding of Isaac Luftrausers Papers, Please Cave Story (sort of the godfather of the modern indie game) Limbo Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons Gunpoint
