Top 10 Indie Games of 2015

6. Undertale

Undertale-3-min

Undertale has seemingly took the indie gaming world by storm. Already deemed a classic by the majority of people who’ve played it, it’s a charming retro RPG packed with unrivalled wit and comedy at every turn.

The characters are the heart of the story in Undertale, with self-aware enemies that don’t want to fight you and a whole host of NPCs you can’t help but want to spend time with. It’s more than just an RPG – Undertale is packed with surprising twists and turns in its story and beneath the humour it can be dark and sometimes genuinely emotive. Don’t be put off by the retro graphics, Undertale is well worth checking out.

5. Armikrog

Armikrog-3-min

It’s a shame that on its release, Armikrog had quite a lot of negative attention, with people complaining of game-breaking glitches and bugs. Luckily for me, I never experienced any of that, so got to enjoy the game in all its glory. And glorious it is – a point and click game, animated entirely in hand-modelled stop motion. It truly is a feast for the eyes.

The downside to being stop motion animation is that the game is unfortunately on the short side, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. Combined with genuinely funny dialogue, excellent voice acting and even its own theme song, Armikrog is an unforgettable game and certainly one of the best indies of 2015.
