Rocket League Awarded Best Indie at The Game Awards

Rocket League

Rocket League has won best Indie at the 2015 Game Awards.

Rocket League has been awarded best Indie game of 2015. Beloved by millions, instantly popular for its intense gameplay multiplayer gameplay, amusing customization features and unique take on the PVP genre, its success points toward the strength of the Rocket League Community, who are thanked by the developers as they take the award on stage at The Game Awards, stepping ahead of their competitors Ori and the Blind Forest, Her Story, Undertale and Axiom verge.


This is definitely a curious choice however, as it is what could be described as the most “mainstream” of the indie nominees, with an emphasis on multiplayer, customization, and not so much on story and artistic individuality, which are typically the defining traits of the indie genre.  This perhaps means that indie games are becoming somthing else, reaching a stage where the shift changes, just as the main gaming scene has undergone many times before. Rocket  League, then, is at the forefront of change.

Either way, the cars take the crown. Congrats to Rocket League, its Developers at Psyonix, and its players. The genre bending sports game has entertained many, gathered a strong fan following, and puts itself forth as the best indie game of the year.
