The 5 Best Indie Games You Should Buy This Steam Winter Sale

After our 5 best RPGs to pick up in the latest Steam sale, we are now going to run down the list of the 5 best indie games to get during the sale.

Hollow Knight – 34% off

Hollow Knight was one of the best games to come out this year, never mind about just indie games, and with the amount of content available for the low price on sale, you really can’t go wrong with this sort of deal

Cuphead – 15%

It sold over 2 million copies, so it has to be good, right?

Dead Cells – 25%

I played this back in February at PCGamer Weekender and it was one of the best games at the show even then. Now it is in early access with loads more content, you should definitely pick it up.

Night in the Woods – 25%

You play as a cat, in one of the most beautifully crafted artistic world to come out this year. Touching on some subjects that may not get talked about, Night in the Woods is one of the best adventure games.

SteamWorld Dig 2 – 35%

The fans of the first game may be miffed at some design choices, but the overall design makes all nitpicks easy to overlook for an enjoyable grind.
