Steam Sale
Last Updated:

Seven indie game publishers from across the world have come together to create The Indie Houses. A collaborative initiative with hopes to promote an environment to share knowledge between publishers rather than compete.

What does this mean for players? Well it means a fantastic collection of indie games are available and proudly on display in the Steam Store. 

From the 31st of August til the 7th of September, gamers of all sorts can try out some new and old indie games from all publishers all over the world.

Many of the featured games have even been specially released as part of this event.

Indie games are a fantastic way to see what individuals are capable of when it comes to creating games.

It’s not uncommon for indie games to be breath-taking to look at and enjoy. Some are centred on more down-to-earth themes or simply escaping reality for a moment to enjoy fictional characters and fictional worlds.

I’ve rounded up a couple of indie games that are all below £10 that we think you’ll enjoy. All of our recommendations are available now to download! But we highly encourage you to have an e-wander around the Steam Store to see if anything catches your eye that we might have missed.

 

Spinch (£7.97)

 

We start off our list of recommendations with the most bright and psychedelic looking game in the entire Steam Store!

Spinch is a 2D platformer by award-winning Canadian cartoonist, Jesse Jacobs.

In this game, you take on the role of Spinch, a hyper-agile organism consumed by the quest to rescue a litter of its missing offspring.

If you’re a fan of Cuphead, we’re certain you’ll enjoy this kaleidoscopic adventure!

Townscaper (£4.79)

 

Next up, we have one of my personal favourites. If you’re the type of gamer who sometimes needs to decompress after a long day or a particularly frustrating game, Townscaper is just the thing.

All you do is build a town, with minimal controls and simply point-and-click mechanics, you’ll be surprised by how quickly you can create a gorgeous and serene little sea-side town.
