Which Indie Games are worth buying?
I've got my list together, but i'm wondering if any of them are worth buying.
My heart is set on Antichamber and Braid, but the many others; i'm not so sure about.

In the words of Jar Jar Binks (may he die) - Any help would be hot...

All of these "caught my eye" and i've seen gameplay videos for most of them, but i'm not sold quite yet:


1. Retro City Rampage
- $4.99

2. BIT.TRIP.RUNNER with Soundtrack (looks good)
- $2.99

3. Castle Crashers (i've got people to play 4 player coop)
- $8.99

4. Rock of Ages (Monty Python bowling!!!!)
- $2.49

5. Super Hexagon 2 pack (one to trade)
- $1.69

6. Cave Story+ (seen gameplay videos, looks good)
- $3.99

7. Don't Starve (seen gameplay videos and it looks decent, also I get an extra copy to trade)
- $11.99

8. Fly'N (don't have a 'cutsy' platformer, and the music is great)
- $3.39

9. Nimbus (from my experience with the demo, it looks pretty good)
- $2.49

10. Deadlight (only seen a few videos about this)
- $3.74

11. Incredipede (concept is intriguing)
- $9.99

In your list, I've only played Castle Crashers and Don't Starve. They are both well worth it and lots of fun.

Question about Don't Starve - I heard it was a Chrome App... is that the case with the Steam version?

I've heard that you can buy it as an app for chrome, but the Steam version is fully integrated into Steam.

Fantastic. I will probably buy it then!

Oh and about how long is Castle Crashers? Like how many hours of content does it have?

I haven't beat it, but so far I've put in 9 hours just doing regular single player and it looks like I've gone half way. The multiplayer adds a lot of replayability and crazy fun. Also note it includes local co-op, which means you can have four controllers connected to just one PC for you all to play.

Awesome.
Is there the ability to mix keyboards/mice and controllers to play together? Just wondering.

I haven't tried that, but I've heard people have had problems doing that.

-Lone Survivor!
People always seems to forget Lone Survivor.
There's -Hotline Miami that I want to buy too.

-Cave Story + is an incredible game. You should totaly buy it.
If you liked Super Metroid, this got a great Metroidvania feeling.
It's pretty unic and totaly awesome. Little Sidequests, hidden items and endings!

-Retro City Rampage seems like a lot of fun.
I'm sure it's worth the 5 bucks.

Castle Crashers is too short. All you will be doing is beating the game very quickly and repeating the game over again on a higher difficulty.. Bastion is very good, I have almost beat it. It's got a lot of levels, about 10 hours playing, maybe more, maybe less. Bastion for sure!

I bought a 4 pack of castle crashers, if your friends have slow internet or are lagging, it will not be good. We beat it on normal and never played again. The 4 pack was $15. I DO regret it. Wish I only bought 1 copy or none. (It's alright for 5 bucks anyway...)

Most every game is worth the money when it's on sale.

A few games you might like I can think of right now are...
Wanderlust:rebirth
Natrual selection 2
Chivarly
Intrustion 2
The Cave (This game looks cool, I watched gameplay, hard to figure out.)
Super meat boy. (tons of levels and endless levels made by others. very hard game and very good)
Mark of the ninja.


I would advise you save your money and get bioshock infinite or a mutiplayer/co-op game (about $20-$30 to play with your friends or something. =)

Thats all I can think of.

Happy Gaming!
