According to Paste Magazine, some fun indie games include “The Swapper,” “Gone Home,” “Castles in the Sky” and “The Stanley Parable.” All these indie games are available on PC; however, some of them are being ported to other systems. For example, “The Swapper” is being ported to the Wii U, according to IGN.
“Gone Home” is a great indie game because it challenges the notion that video games are not a good medium for telling stories, according to Paste Magazine. The game is challenging because it puts players into a story and allows them to run free without holding their hand. “Gone Home” expects the players to uncover what they are supposed to be doing, and the end result is a game that is extremely personal.
According to Blackspears Media, some of the most popular indie games start out as flash games. One such example is “Simgirls,” which is a dating simulator that was first launched on Newgrounds. The game was developed by indie developer SimMan. Although the game took over four years to finish, as of 2014 it's the most viewed submission in the history of Newgrounds, with more than 50 million views. The characters in the game are based on the manga series “DNA2,” which was written by Masakazu Katsura. Despite its popularity, “Simgirls” remains a free game.
