A good friend of mine who is a coding whizz and general authority on great independent games recently coerced me into playing and subsequently finishing the game Inside. After not gaming for 8+ years, my mind completely blown. I then took his and my other friend’s suggestion to play Hypnospace Outlaw.
(Here’s a review for anyone who isn’t familiar: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/game/hypnospace-outlaw/
And a link to the game’s Steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/844590/Hypnospace_Outlaw/ )
Hypnospace was so incredibly hilarious, nuanced, intelligent and fun that I’m just craving something to play next.
Is there anything else in the world of independent games that you’d consider a “must-play”? The only thing I have on my itinerary right now is Kentucky Route Zero.
