5 Indie Games To Watch in Spring 2015

1 of 5

1. Wild Season - Quickfire Games

Wild Season is a farming and life simulator crossed with an RPG that will give you all of those Harvest Moon feelings you've been craving on any platform that you wish.

Coming out sometime in April 2015, this game touts a cute graphics style and the ability to play as either gender as well as romance either gender.

If you preorder it now through the Humble Store, you'll get 10% off as well as the ability to play the early access beta version.

2. To Leave - Freaky Creations

To Leave has a quirky art style in typical indie game fashion, but it doesn't stop there.

The game has an intriguing twist on the typical platformer, where you control a boy trapped in a dream land, flying around by holding onto a door.

If the door hits something, it'll open, sending you back to the real world and causing you to lose all of your progress.

It will be releasing on PS4, PS Vita, PC, Mac and Linux this spring.

3. No Man's Sky - Hello Games

No Man's Sky has been generating a lot of buzz recently, and for a good reason.

This sci-fi exploration game set in procedurally generated universes will let you play forever, literally.

Promising lasting consequences on your game for every victory, and perhaps more importantly, every defeat, makes this indie game all the more intriguing.

Be sure to look out for it when it comes to multiple platforms this spring.

4. Titan Souls - Acid Verve

Titan Souls is one of those games that looks like it was cooked up in a garage somewhere, and that's part of its appeal.

Hearkening back to a time when 8-bit graphics were the norm and there was no easy mode, Acid Nerve looks like it has a top-down hit on its hands.

In order to beat Titan Souls, you'll need to down all of the titans that inhabit the space between our world and "the world beyond". Sound easy? Try doing it armed with a single arrow.

If that level of difficulty does not scare you off, then you can look forward to playing Titan Souls very soon. You can even pre-order it on Steam for 10% off right now, bringing the meager $15 price tag down to $13.50.

5. Mighty No. 9 - Comcept USA

Thought we would skip over Might No. 9? Then think again. This spiritual successor to the Mega Man franchise has had tons of buzz around the internet ever since it was announced in August 2013.

The indie Japanese platformer is finally set to release later in April 2015, and is almost guaranteed to be a hit thanks to producer Keiji Inafune of Capcom fame.

You'll be able to find Mighty No. 9 on virtually any platform (PC , Mac, Linux, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS) soon. What remains to be decided is how much the game will cost, and that is something we probably will not find out until you can actually buy it.
