Uniqueness, creativity and awesome gameplay. These are the basic components of almost any kind of game, not for indie games though. The big difference of indie games apart from others is that they are designed to be outside the status quo, something to spark imagination as well as diving into the world of possibilities in gaming. Whether it’s for the sheer, awesome gameplay, or something that helps us recreate how we see things, these games push the capabilities of imagination and turn them into play.
