The Best Switch Indie Games: The Indie Games You’ll Love

Nintendo has given us a great opportunity to find the best Switch Indie games since there’s over 95 of them!

An independent (indie) game is a game that is made by a few individuals or a small development team. These individuals or small development teams don’t have the budget or financial support that large-scale companies (like EA and Square Enix) have.

Because they have independence, the games produced by these individuals typically have more unique experiences and risks. These games are usually always sold on online platforms since they don’t have strong publishing/financial support.

But, these games are awesome for the sole fact that they are unique and provide you the chance to support small gaming companies as well.
