The 10 Best Indie Games of 2016

6. Firewatch

Developer: Campo Santo

Platforms: PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One

FIrewatch is one of those games I decided to give a chance despite its genre being something I generally wouldn't have an interest in. You take on the role of Henry, a man who has taken a job as a fire lookout in the Wyoming woodlands. Something strange grabs your attention and you head out to investigate.

Your only contact is your supervisor, who you communicate with through a small handheld radio. You must explore an environment that is unknown to you, face hard questions and make difficult decisions. The major highlights of the game are its story and beautiful design. 

If you are looking for something that isn't all guns and violence with a gripping plot, then Firewatch is definitely worth checking out.
