What indie game are you addicted to?

I’ve been meaning to get into this.
Is it worth the purchase? What’s the overall feel like? I don’t want it too be overy complicated and tedious, but at the same time I don’t really like it to be a walk in the park.

That looks very interesting!

Disclaimer: I purchased this game myself and have no affiliation with Hinterland Studio. This is my opinion based on 96.6 hours of game play.

The good points:

  • You define the level of difficulty. You can set individual levels in almost all areas (see screenshot).
  • There are different terrains and areas that force changes in your behavior.
  • You have a decent story line (Winternmute) or survival mode.
  • There are some random elements to keep you on your toes.
  • It is immersive.

The bad:

  • Wolves. I hate these frikking things and the ability to counter attacks is limited by design. Bears less so, but they can maul you badly.

Overall 9 / 10 and recommended. $34.99 on Steam as I write this.

I’m addicted to Vampire Survivors. A highly addictive game, very retro at heart. A very tasty little Sega Genesis side.

I just spent like 4 hours playing it on Sunday during our mini heat way in the PNW. I have about half of everything unlocked now.

Game with cute graphics that requires an engineering degree to play without looking up any YouTube tutorials. To get the full game experience do several playthroughs, all of which will likely fail before searching for YouTube tutorials.

Over 1200 hours in it, the next game in my steam collection has less than 400.

^^Have countless hours on this game. A bullet hell rogue-like game that has references galore. Great for when you have 10-20 minutes to spare.

Just bought this to play with some buddies recently and not bad so far:

More or less a classic in 2022, but certainly both related to present conflicts and being a great and sad RPG/survival/basebuilder. It’s well made and you see developer love in this title. (same developer as Frostpunk)
Posting because on sale ( a steal really). I recommend getting both DLCs for interesting new content and more stories.

The one I’m thinking about is very different, and is my favorite game of all time is:
Tunic: Tunic is an action-adventure game. Its most prominent and innovative feature is the in-game instruction manual. A cute little fox dressed in green and wearing a weapon takes his first steps in a new world full of secrets, surprises, and dangers.

I’ve seen promos for Tunic, and that game looks absolutely gorgeous.

I’m still playing Banished.
My current town is over 250 population. I can’t keep up with the expansion. At least I manage to feed them all.
I guess that’s my addiction for the time being…
