Indie Quick Picks: Three Short And Sweet Games For The Weekend
I’m sure you all know by now how much I love my indie games. So I thought, instead of tediously posting the Let’s Plays I do to eGamer, which believe me was an exercise in tediousness, I felt I could do a more simple and new feature that basically gives you some free games to play over the weekend, or whenever really. On a rainy day. Today I’ve got three games lined up for you, so check them out below.

The first game is Vapour, a currently free and unique indie game from South African developers Skobbejak Games. I covered the game in a recent article, but basically it’s a horror shooter currently in its prototype stage, so it’s a free download on the developer’s official website. If you feel you’re scared easily by horror, you can take a look at my Let’s Play up above to see what kind of game it is.
The next game on my list is the awesome Broforce, from South African developers Free Lives. I’ve also written about this game, and it’s definitely one of the coolest indie games I’ve played. It’s just crazy fun. Although it’s not yet fully released, the demo of the game is completely free from Free Lives’ official website, and I highly recommend that you check it out. Again, if you want to see but not play just yet, you can watch my Let’s Play above. Trust me, you won’t regret playing this if you enjoyed games like Metal Slug or Contra.
The last game for today is Dreadout, an in-development unique horror game from Indonesian indie developers Digital Happiness. I did a Let’s Play on this game quite early in the eGamer channel’s lifespan, but it’s definitely a very interesting game that I’m keen to play more of. For now, the demo is available as a free download, and once again if you’d like to see if you find the game scary, give the video up above a watch. I’m very much excited by what this game can be when it’s out.
That’s it for today’s indie quick picks feature. In truth, these games won’t eat up too much of your time, and they’re fun to give a spin if you’re bored or need some time to kill. They’re all high quality though, and will surely give you a small taste of what indie is all about.
