Outer Wilds (25% off) Nominated for multiple awards and winner of the 2019 Golden Joystick Award for best Indie Game. Outer Wilds is an open world mystery about a solar system trapped in an endless time loop. You’re the newest recruit of Outer Wilds Ventures, a fledgling space program searching for answers in a strange, constantly evolving solar system. What lurks in the heart of the ominous Dark Bramble?

Return of the Obra Dinn (25% off) Another critically acclaimed game, Return of the Obra Dinn won Best Art Direction at The Game Awards in 2018 and it was well earned. This beautiful game perfectly exemplifies an artistic adventure with minimal color. In 1802, the merchant ship Obra Dinn set out from London for the Orient with over 200 tons of trade goods. Six months later it hadn’t met its rendezvous point at the Cape of Good Hope and was declared lost at sea. Early in the morning of October 14, 1807, the Obra Dinn drifted into port at Falmouth with damaged sails and no visible crew. As an insurance investigator for the East India Company’s London Office you are dispatched immediately to find means to board the ship and prepare an assessment of damages. Return of the Obra Dinn is a first-person mystery adventure based on exploration and logical deduction.
Inside (67% off) I’m on a roll with award winners so let’s include the game that is often included on best indie of all time lists. Just to name a few awards, Inside won Best Indie Game at The Game Awards and The Game Critics Awards in 2016 and Best Art Direction at The Game Awards and D.I.C.E. Awards in 2016. Hunted and alone, a boy finds himself drawn into the center of a dark project. The attention to detail the developers put into this game is beautiful and without any spoilers the ending is something that’s still talked about around the office to this day.
Creature in the Well (25% off) Unlock the power of an ancient facility and face the ominous, all-seeing creature in this unique pinball-inspired hack and slash! Creature in the Well is a top-down, pinball-inspired, hack-and-slash dungeon crawler.
