30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 24. Favourite Indie Game.

I find that its some of the smaller games that are made by small developer teams, with less budget and no AAA publisher supporting them, that have the most heart.

Looking at my favourite indie game, I can definitely say that’s true! What is that game, you ask? Stardew Valley, the surprise hit of 2016.

Stardew Valley is a game in which you inherited a run down farm from your grandfather, in the rural town of Stardew Valley. Restoring the farm to its former glory is not the only task available to you, you can also help rebuild the community centre (or help Joja Corp.), attend festivals, explore the mines and make friends of the residents of Stardew Valley.

On the surface, Stardew Valley looks like its just Harvest Moon, but spend some time playing the game and you’ll find there is much more to it. What’s more impressive is that the game was created and developed by one man, who is still working on it to this day. I believe that Stardew Valley deserves all the praise that it gets and that is why it is my favourite indie game.

There are a lot of indie games out there, which is your favourite? Let me know in the comments and join me tomorrow, when I’ll be talking about a video game moment that surprised me. See you then!

  1. Stardew Valley is so addicting, I can’t stop playing it! My favorite indie is really hard to choose. Rogue Legacy is the game that got me into indie titles, so that’s definitely a contender. There’s also a few indies that just tell a really good story that I love, like To the Moon, Oxenfree, and Talos Principle. Oh, also, Hue is my favorite metroidvania indie I’ve played thus far.

    I play a lot of indies, so that’s probably not all of my favorites, but I’m rambling 😊
