Hey folks! The Steam Summer Sale is well underway. We’ve already addressed a lot of the biggest and best Steam Summer Sale deals. But we want to give some love to the smaller games as well. Here are some of our top picks for what Indie Games you should grab while the getting is good!
These are either fantastic deals on great games or great deals on fantastic games. Some, like Hollow Knight, speak for themselves, while others we’ve taken some time to really pitch because they’re hidden gems (or just really important to us). With introductions out of the way, here’s the big list.
Steam Summer Sale Best Indies Under $10
Darkest Dungeon has a deserved reputation for being difficult, but it’s so much game for such a low price right now. Make sure to grab its excellent DLC while you’re at it! Though there have also been plenty of free updates, like The Butcher’s Circus multiplayer mode, to chew through as well. Heat Signature is a bit more of a cult classic, but was secretly one of the best games of 2017. It’s basically a Coen Bros. movie simulator… in space. If this fantastic trailer doesn’t sell you on it, nothing will.
Steam Summer Sale Best Indies Over $10
Outer Wilds is one of the most expensive games on this list, but it’s worth more than full price, much less a measly $16. The space-based puzzle game with a bittersweet backstory was the critical darling of 2019. Now you can get it on the cheap. Slay the Spire and Dead Cells, meanwhile, will scratch your various roguelike itches for months to come.
