Hi there - up for a second time following YouTube being a silly sausage, here's our view on the best indie games out so far on the Switch. Cheers!

Also shantae half genie hero.
T Lee (6 days ago)
Bro...Shovel Knight Treasure Trove. That is up there with Celeste for me.
Get Indie Gaming (6 days ago)
Good call right there - Hollow Knight will be out soon too.
karmigero (1 month ago)
Celeste is the best game (indie or not) in years
Get Indie Gaming (1 month ago)
Very true - game of the year(s) contender for sure.

Golf Story has some of the best writing in years. And it made me actually like Golf more than before and even understand the logistics of it while having a great story.
Get Indie Gaming (1 month ago)
Agree with you. Not a fan of golf and yet the story with the gameplay won us over.
You missed Crawl
Great list! I'm loving my Switch.
ConAirNL (2 months ago)
Enter the Gungeon is the first game that comes to mind when you ask for games that are left out of this selection. Maybe there will be enough suggestions to do another video. I have to admit that your summary on Celeste makes me curious towards the full game.
Get Indie Gaming (1 month ago)
Totally hard as nails. Fun and yet maddening at time too.
ConAirNL (2 months ago)
Thanks for the replies. And yeah, it's hard to master, but I keep coming back to it.
Gungeon is really really good! So tough though!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
That one has indeed come up a few times. We had better take another look.
WhatchaGot2Say (2 months ago)
Is Crossing Souls on theSwitch
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Sadly not. Perhaps it might be added to the system at a later date.
Chozodianemissary (2 months ago)
I fell in love with Owlboy. Such a wonderful game.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Totally agree with you.
nintendo and chill (2 months ago)
Im hoping for more indie classics like bastion and rogue legacy
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Yep - that would be really cool. Hope to see Hollow Knight and a few others too.
Abhi Prasad (2 months ago)
Shovel knight, enter the gungeon, binding of Issac?
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
All fine games, just not ones we have enjoyed (subjectively) than the ones in the list. Thanks for the reminder about Gungeon though. Need to play that one again.
Un Usuario (2 months ago)
Nice! I'd like this as a series, the switch isn't losing popularity and indies keep making games for it. Maybe one switch video every two months or something like that. I don't have a switch yet but god dammit I want one...
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
The Switch is certainly a great focus for us with our next video on Tuesday covering the Nindies Direct announcements out the same day. Cheers again for the kind words.
Mohammed Kattouah (2 months ago)
The Sexy Brutale runs like crap on the switch. Get it elsewhere.
Stuart J (2 months ago)
That the issues we're fixed? Perhaps not.
Touch of Chaos (2 months ago)
FC: 8270-6696-9895 I just got the Switch so for now I only have Zelda. I will however be getting Splatoon 2 this week. As for next month I'm buying Doom, Arms, Bomberman, Mario kart 8, and many more games. I'm also on Central Time zone TEXAS. We also have a Discord for everything Nintendo Switch. Just ask me and I'll post the invite link to it.
Ashtarte (2 months ago)
I can support Celeste being number one. I beat all of Super Meat Boy's Dark World challenges years ago and hadn't felt like punishing myself with that sort of game again until I saw how endearing Celeste was on Twitch. I felt compelled to get through all of the B-sides (but not C-sides cause I'm not a masochist) and it felt far more rewarding to accomplish than Meat Boy did. I just felt good for finally pulling off tricky sections because I could tell I was making real progress instead of just banging my head against it.
Try out Slime-san! I'm curious on your thoughts on The End is Nigh if you gave that a shot
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Very well put. We feel very much the same and this was a huge reason why Celeste was at the number one slot and why Super Meat Boy wasn't added to this list. Thanks again for taking the time to make this comment.
Savanna Dearing (2 months ago)
I think I saw it on this channel but have y'all seen the game whose main character is a dancing grim reaper. It's a puzzle game, you have to keep him out of the light while he dances to whoever needs to die. I absolutely love it and can't wait to play it.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Yep. It’s called Felix the Reaper and having played the demo, it looks and plays superbly.
Oh man Darkest Dungeon should be on this list as well!Fantastic game!
Good picks! Never heard of Fast RMX but it looks fun. Can;t go wrong with the top 5 titles there! So jealous that Golf Story is Switch only!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Golf Story was a huge surprise. We picked it up out of curiosity and are very glad we did.
Ross Miller (2 months ago)
Thanks for this.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
You’re most welcome.
Nathan Pratt (2 months ago)
Quick thought on your video description : NITW was not obvious as Night in the Woods upon first read. Thanks for the video - I understand that 'best of' lists are subjective and we all won't agree!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Fair point on the NITW issue which could be misunderstood. All good feedback - thank you.
Sudstah (2 months ago)
But they aren't just on the switch they are on pc as well I am so frustrated buying the switch i literally have zelda FIFA and 2 other downloaded grade c games and have yet to find a game worth buying. I am missing smash bros metroid, animal crossing, fire emblem, ace attorney, Mario maker, warioware and a 100 other classic Nintendo ips bring the gc library over as well.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Very true - most are as you say also on the PC and others as well. With the Switch becoming a key sales driver for indie teams we thought it high time to put out a video on the games on the system we liked the most. Appreciate the comment.
Most of them are on PC as you mentioned, and I still think a Switch exclusive Indie is quite a risky thing at the moment (but hey, Steamworld Dig 2 did better on Switch than Steam). Sees like you got the Switch for First Party Nintendo Stuff. How about Super Mario Odyssey or Splatoon?
Shilvio D. Linton (2 months ago)
Just picked up Floor Kids. It looks great!
Cathy Tyrell-Knights (2 months ago)
Hmm, I didn't know that Celeste was so customisable. I have avoided it because I am hopeless at run 'n jump games (like Super Meat Boy) - you make me want to try it out now!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Oh yes, it’s super customizable. It’s such a clever piece of gaming design. Wonderfully empathetic and accessible.
Mashy_ (2 months ago)
No Snake Pass. :( Still a good list though!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Actually that’s a fair point. We’ve not played it on the Switch. It probably is a really good game to have on a portable. Thanks for the suggestion.
el Cheshire Ilustracion (2 months ago)
I really can´t wait for the nindies direct. And have a release day for Hollow Knight, finally. And hopefully for Wandersong as well. And the fact that absolutely everyone showers with praise Celeste makes me really want to buy it... but that Splatoon DLC, though. As always thanks for the video. It may be just me, but your calm voice really soothes me.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
The Nindies Direct on the 20th is something we like many others are super excited about. We will look to do a wrap up video in the evening UK time as the event should be finished by 18:00 / 6pm. Many thanks for the kind words.
Gurdev Seepersaud (2 months ago)
Thumper deserves to be on this list.
Gurdev Seepersaud (2 months ago)
Aw, my pleasure! I adore it.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Another great choice. Thanks for the comment.
Hollow knight will be number one once its finally released for the switch
An Orange Fellow oh I have and loved it
An Orange Fellow (2 months ago)
Hollow Knight is awesome, but there have been a ton of great indies on the Switch! If you haven't tried it yet, Celeste is really wonderful
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Fingers crossed the port across is a good one. Oh fingers are very, very crossed.
Get Indie Gaming oh believe me I am ready
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Almost certainly. Not long to go. Possible announcement on the 20th.
Stuart J (2 months ago)
Good choices. Super Meat Boy would have been a nice to see. What happened to the original video you deleted?
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
YouTube being silly so and sos with the video compression.
Joshua Ogle (2 months ago)
I was amazed at how much I enjoyed Golf Story. Didn't look like my kind of thing at all, loved every second.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Yes we totally agree with you. It was really rather wonderful, so much better than we had expected.
klatau barad (2 months ago)
Thimbleweed park is one of the best games of the year. Shovel knight is great.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
It is very much in the intentionally tongue in cheek side of things. Other people have said the same thing to us before. Many thanks for the comment and taking the time to do so.
Aashiq Shaikh (2 months ago)
I normally love point and click games but I couldn’t get though more than an hour of that. The dialogue was too cheesy to take seriously so I couldn’t get into the story. Does it get better?
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Excellent suggestions there. Thinbleweed Park is really good fun. We see it’s getting a limited edition physical releases too towards the end of the month.
The End is Nigh, Enter the Gungeon, Shovel Knight, they are also great games
And to Gungeon! one of my favourite rogue-lite of recent times
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Yes to Shovel Knight. Excellent choice.
Richard Austin (2 months ago)
Excited for Stardew Valley multiplayer update?!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
100%
Slothy Pixels (2 months ago)
I get this is opinion but you should try binding of Isaac and end is nigh
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
End is Nigh is on our to play list. Cheers for reminding us.
projectfear22 (2 months ago)
Any similar games to sexy brutale but for pc?
Stuart J (2 months ago)
Thanks for that suggestion. Have not seen this before.
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
That's a loooooong time ago. Great game though.
projectfear22 (2 months ago)
That came to mind as I was writing haha. I played it way back. Masterpiece. :)
Muhab Selim (2 months ago)
projectfear22 If by some miracle you haven't played it yet, Neighbors From Hell.
Ignacio Parra (2 months ago)
where is DANDARA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Oh dear. We need to go back to that one. We played for a few hours although it got put on the back burner for Celeste and Forma.8.
Nocvius Steven (2 months ago)
I've played and enjoyed every single game on this list, except Floor Kids and Fast RMX. Great list!
Get Indie Gaming (2 months ago)
Many thanks. Both of those you mention are well worth a play. Especially Floor Kids which was a total surprise to us.
