The Indie game market blew up this year with major support from both publishers and console manufactures, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft all showed an over-realming support for indie games which in turn opened up a new fan base for these games. So here is our choice for the best Indie game of 2014.
AND THE NOMINEES ARE…
OCTODAD: DADLIEST CATCH – YOUNG HORSES
CHILD OF LIGHT – UBISOFT
MERCENARY KINGS – TRIBUTE GAMES
SHOVEL KNIGHT – YACHT CLUB GAMES
TRANSISTOR – SUPERGIANT GAMES
AND THE WINNER IS…

Shovel Knight plays on nostalgia so perfectly it is amazing, borrowing pieces from Megaman, Ducktales, wrapped together with Dark Souls difficulty curve. It appeals to both fans of the era and gamers who enjoy a challenge.
