    Best Indie Game Recommendations

    Share your indie game recommendations here.

    If anyone can suggest anything similar to Rimworld, Starsector that'd be awesome.

    Stars in Shadow is a good one, it's sort of like Masters of Orion but modernized.

    Lobotomy Corp and Library of Ruina are cool too.

    Battle for Wesnoth is a good strategy game if you can get around the nonsense RNG, or install the mod that fixes the RNG.
    I play as Orlando 'Florida' Blackburn, the big fucking space jew from the moon, who has never even been to Florida.

    I also play as the xeno OY-XXX, you will usually see me playing Praetorian and helping carry the hive. Or as queen.

    You play ss? Nice.

    I haven't really found any game that comes close to starsector in that regard tbh. All I know about is Iron Armada, which is a sp/mp game inspired by starsector, you can download it for free on Steam.

    Observor is a really good game, it is exceedingly good with its world-building, storyline, characters and so on. It has one shortish which is a bit tedious but I suppose thats what you get from an indie-story based game.

    Bastion is a safe bet if you've never tried it also, that game is based.

    Disco Elysium - Jesus fuck play this, it's like planescape torment, but reasonable, and easily my top game of the last year.

    Other than that, one painfully obscure game that I love is "The Red Strings Club". Definitely not for everyone, and some of the main themes might be turn offs to the people in this community. But still, it's cheap as hell, and it has some god tier writing/music/art (If you're into pixel art)

    Oh also, you guys got to try this really cool indie game I just found. It's super obscure, so you probably never heard of it. Its this game called Space Station 13 where you fuck around on a space station and beat up guys in red suits. There's even this really cool server inspired by Aliens: Colonial Marines that has an awesome community and great admins. Here, I'll link the wiki...

    (Authors Note: This post almost took up an entire page. I deleted all the 3/5 games to make the list easier to look at. The full list is attached via .txt file if you're interested.)
    Finally a thread for me. I love weird ass games and many of them are indie. I'm also including criminally underrated mainstream titles as well. Here are my favorites. It's a long list but they're good I promise. I'm using (my interpretation of) Videogamedunkey review scores (1 - bad, 2 - decent, 3 - interesting, 4 - captivating, 5 - excellent).

    TL;DR - Play Santuary RPG: Black edition, or spin the wheel for a random game - https://preview.tinyurl.com/WheelSpinSeabass

    In regards to OP's post. A similar game to Rimworld would be Prison Architect. I couldn't get into that though. You might be able to.

    Seabass has a pretty good list so far. I'd add onto it with the following:

    Cortex Command
    Dominions 4 and 5
    Geneforge Series
    They Are Billions
    Xenonauts
    Project Warlock
    I play as Orlando 'Florida' Blackburn, the big fucking space jew from the moon, who has never even been to Florida.

    I also play as the xeno OY-XXX, you will usually see me playing Praetorian and helping carry the hive. Or as queen.
