It's getting harder and harder to separate great indies from commercially published titles, so we reserved this category for the more odd and experimental games out there. Rocket League certainly qualifies as "odd and experimental," but it's also hugely entertaining. Feel free to jump in on this trend anytime – there are thousands of players out there waiting to rev their engines with you.
Ori and the Blind Forest
Emotionally heartfelt and stunningly beautiful, Ori and the Blind Forest took our breath away and made us all shed a few tears. It's not only its beauty that sets it apart from other platform-adventure games, it also sports some excellent controls and high-quality design that allows you to hone your skills rather than feeling unfair in its challenge. This is the kind of design that indies should shoot for.
