Best Indie Game of 2016 - ArticleDan Carreras , posted on 08 January 2017 / 7,323 Views
It’s been almost a decade since indie games first made a splash on console platforms and in that time the quality of indie offerings has continued to rise. With triple-A releases taking longer to make on average - and in many cases receiving numerous delays - these increasingly polished and oftentimes addictive indie titles give us a chance to continue to play new releases while waiting for the year's more anticipated big beasts.
With its gorgeously realised world, and fantastic attention to detail, Inside was always going to be a hit for many fans of Playdead’s previous game, Limbo. Its 10/10 rating on Steam goes a long way to showing how well loved the dark and brooding Inside is, and that's no less the case for the VGChartz community, which hands Inside the award for both Best Puzzle Game of 2016 and Best Indie Game of 2016.
