You will run into sentences that appear machine translated.
Nice. This will surely trigger fond memories of Zoids: Legacy.

Poly Bridge is pretty good, if you like logic puzzles and some sort of simple construction theme appeals to you.

Other than that, on top of my head, what hasn't already been mentioned: Banished, Eufloria (really fun, simple strategy game!), Flame in the Flood, The Forest, Hero of the Kingdom, Hidden Folks (if you're into that kind of stuff, it's amazing), Kingdom Rush series, This War of Mine...

I can second Eufloria. I used to run that one in another tab while surfing or whatever. I play rts games really defensively, usually to my own detriment. Eufloria would let you just kind of set everything to grow automatically and check back in later.

Poly Bridge sounds like a clone of Bridge Builder (also know as Pontifex, apparently).

Every actual roguelike is indy so I won't mention them now. Carrion has already been mentioned but Butcher, a real tough sidescrolling shooter by the same people is worth mentioning. Goes for two bucks on offer and is a lightweight GOG release so the rum enthusiasts among you can grab it quickly as well.

Lonely Mountains Downhill has been my current drug of choice for the past few days. Real nice freedom and a great trial and error gameplay loop.

Are there any good indie shmups? I remember Luftrausers, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it. The game is extremely simplistic. The parts aren't balanced either, IIRC. Some of them are broken and others are nigh useless.

Jets'n'Guns. Accept no substitutes.


Or just pick anything by Orange Juice, if you're a badass like me.


Astebreed might also be your cup of tea if you like mecha shmups where you actually feel like controlling a mecha, prefer your waifus to look like NGE cosplayers, and enjoy a story you can't actually follow because the game didn't get dubbed and there's no way in hell that you ever have time to read the subs.

(Is that even indie? Hell if I know, but it must be considering it's a shmup.)

Fuck, I meant shmups where you pilot a ship and shoot cool aliens, not weeb trash with flying waifus.
