The independent (indie) games are either created by the individuals or small teams of developers without the financial support or collaboration of any big gaming publisher.
This gives the indie game developers the freedom to take a dig at innovation and to come up with some extremely exquisite and engaging games.
Here are our favorite picks from the upcoming indie games which we anticipate to make big in 2020.
At No. 5 spot we have Duru.
The game is a 2D puzzle platformer and set in the West-African inspired mole rat colony setting.
The game is created by the developers from Berlin and will be made available for home PC and mobiles later in the year.
This is a highly emotive game that is about depression, insecurities, and friendship in which Tuli goes through different tasks along with her friend that is an AI character.
#4 Minute of Island – Transformational Journey in a Faltering World
Ok, so this game looks as beautiful as an animated coloring book.
The game will be made available in the coming months.
You would get to play as the character “Mo” who lives in the otherwise beautiful but now polluted island.
Mo will try to rescue the island from deadly spores and antennae installed by giants with the help of his Omni-tool by heading out in wilds.
