Though most only see a modest amount of success, some indie games have etched their way into video game history by becoming must-have titles.
No Rocket League?
Don't think that was an indie.
iirc Psyonix self published before Epic bought them in 2019. Prior to Rocket League, I’d only heard of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-powered Battle-cars.
And no Hotline Miami but they included Cave Story and Shantae? C'mon, HM was a huge indie game that came out of nowhere and its as good or better than most of the games on the list.
Nothing as amazing as making a game you’re passionate about, own the full rights to it, and have it gain wide acclaim
They’re forgetting super meat boy and braid.
Supergiant Games? Or is this a one hit wonder list?
Yes, this list pretty much seem accurate, although some are missing but it's ok cause it's a top 10 list after all. Now If only they could evolve into becoming a bigger game in their sequels.
I don't recall wayfoward being called Indy dev they have been around since the Snes day So why Shantae is on this list and no Rocket League? No pLayers Unknown Battleground?
