Best Indie Games of March 2017

Thimbleweed Park, indie

Welcome to Thimbleweed Park. A former center of the social scene thanks to its thriving pillow factory, it has since descended into a shell of decay and pity. This is the state that you’ll find Thimbleweed Park in as you embark on an investigation into the body found on the outskirts of the city. However, this game isn’t just your standard point-and-click mystery adventure; it’s oozing with charm, which shines through its stylish visual style, and humorous writing.

Whether you’re digging deep into the case, or just exploring its open world, it won’t take you long before you bump into a member of its eccentric cast of characters or one of many clever puzzles for you to solve. If you’re big into point-and-click adventure games, Thimbleweed Park encapsulates everything you love about them and wraps it up in a perfect homage to the genre.

EVERYTHING

Best Indie Games of March 2017

Everything PS4 exclusive game her artist

Everything is a game that lets you play as… well, everything. There are no scores, rules, or objectives. This is a toy-box that allows you to travel between outer and inner space, and explore an interconnected universe of things. In short: Everything is a procedural, AI-driven simulation of nature, and it takes you along with it for a rather philosophical ride.

It’s certainly not an experience for everyone, and is more of an artistic and philosophical simulation than a game. However, if you’re willing to go along with the ride that Everything wants to take you on, you’ll find a thought-provoking and oft humorous experience. Oh, and you can totally control a giraffe, so there’s that.

March 2017 may have been a little quieter for big release in the indie scene, but both Thimbleweed Park and Everything offer some much-needed diversity within the industry. Will you be picking either of them up? Be sure to let us know down in the comments below.
