The indie game sector is growing every passing day. There are so many indie developers with great indie game projects all around the world. Due to these games being developed on a limited budget, you may not hear about or find the great ones. That’s why I covered the 5 best indie games to add to your wishlist.
Below, you will find five upcoming indie games listed randomly. When you look at these games, you’ll see how many great game projects exist that you’ve never heard of. Also, make sure that you add anything you like to your wishlist on Steam.
DEATHGRIP is a Pod Racer racing indie game, just like in Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace. The game was clearly inspired by Star Wars‘ Pod Racer, with 8 unique racers and 9 different tracks. Moreover, there will be different game modes in the game, like time trials and combat racing.
Developed by Reclaim Interactive, DEATHGRIP is available on Steam to add to your wishlist right now. But there has been no release date set yet. If you like sci-fi games, DEATHGRIP could be a great choice for you because it offers modern gameplay features like the Redout series. The only downside to the game is that it’s single-player only. It would be awesome to play such a racing game multiplayer or at least on the split-screen.
Shadows of Doubt
Shadows of Doubt is a first-person detective stealth indie game that is being developed by ColePowered Games. The game is set in an alternate reality in the 1980s, a fully simulated sci-fi city. You will be a private intelligence investigator in the game and try to solve cases in the city. When it comes to the city, it is fully animated and populated by NPCs, and the city lives on with or without you.

The Cub is a side-scrolling platformer indie game that is inspired by classic SEGA games of the 90s. It has a really catchy storyline where rich people escape to Mars after a Great Ecological Catastrophe and leave the rest to perish. But a kid named the Cub survived by developing immunity to hostile planets. After decades, rich people on Mars come back to earth to reconnoiter, and they notice the Cub. They want to capture him to examine how The Kid survived.
