The 2023 Indie Game Rewind

»»» Don't miss the Youtube video! «««
Happy New Years!

Here is the 2023 Indie Game Rewind! Some entered early access, some went straight to release. Here's the best of the 2023 indie games - a hand selected collection of all the shiny indie games that dazzled through the year.

I did not include games that did a 1.0 release as they are often covered in prior years when they came to Steam initially. This is a Steam list and does include a few Steam VR games or new to Steam games (but could have been initiated on other platforms).

You can watch the full selection in the YouTube video, and find the links of each game individually below.
