Indies dont seem to get as much love.

A lot of Indies are about the same as many other Indies. So many of Indie games are packed with gimmicks like they're trying too hard to pull off something unique that it comes across as annoying. A 2D game with some "new" art style doesn't really equal to something very original. Instead, they get old fast. Just from my experience.

I really wasn't that impressed with Oxenfree. They made some poor design choices, like backtracking through every screen to look for items, meandering paths that take too much time for the characters to cross a single screen, etc.

This was a great game, totally took me by surprise. Really good writting too. Dialogue actually felt grown up which is hard for a game as they’re usually so cheesy.

Never completed it though ended up getting caught up in other games. Definitely going back to finish this one.
