Underrated Indie Games On SteamSo I did some digging and here are Underrated Indie Games On Steam. I am going to buy a Steam Deck very soon. I love the idea of being able to play Steam games on a portable device. This made me do some digging on this topic.

Originally on TechTheLead:

Not all indies are made equal and some do get the attention they deserve. But, for every Hollow Knight and Hades, there are hundreds of other indie titles that slipped through the cracks.

If you’re looking for a lesser-known and more affordable title to try, the ones we’ve listed below might just be right up your alley. And, make sure to grab a Steam Wallet Code from OffGamers here if you’re going to shop for more indie games.

Here is the list of 7 Underrated Indie Games On Steam:

  • Immortality – It’s a mystery game that asks you to find a missing actress using live-action clips from her unreleased films. It’s not a traditional game, per se, and more of an interactive film, but it’s on Steam and it’s an indie title (a good one, if it doesn’t turn you off right away), so it fits the bill.
  • PawnBarbaraian – Chess (yes, the classic strategy board game) is widely considered the mother of turn-based strategy games. However, it’s very rare to see someone take this concept and mesh it with video games and do it well. This is why exactly this very simple-looking but very addictive game known as Pawnbarbarian deserves the nod.
  • HyperCharge: Unboxed – It’s rare for a game to make you feel like you’re having fun even after you’ve been playing it for dozens if not hundreds of hours. Make no mistake, we’re not against grinding here. It’s just that, sometimes, at the end of the day, you need a game that doesn’t require you to do anything to enjoy and let loose, which is exactly where Hypercharge: Unboxed comes in.
  • Death’s Door – his action-adventure game isn’t afraid to show its inspirations on its sleeve, but its unique premise makes it stand out and become more than just a derivative game. In it, players will take control of a crow whose job is to reap monster souls for the Reaping Commission Headquarters. So, you know, like the grim reaper but for the non-human entities inhabiting the universe.
  • Card Shark – You’d think that an 18th-century degenerate and gambler (at the time, it wasn’t an either/or kind of thing) wouldn’t make for a compelling lead character, but you’d be wrong. In Card Shark, you’re a hustler who makes a living by swindling opponents. It doesn’t matter if you’re sneaking a peak at your opponents’ cards or adding cards to your hand, nothing is off the table unless you get caught, in which way, it’s game over.
  • Travellers Rest – In an industry full of sweeping adventures involving treasures, dungeons, dragons, and sometimes all three and then some, Travellers Rest puts you in charge of taking care of these weary warriors. You’ll start with an abandoned inn that you’ll have to turn into the go-to place for the world’s would-be saviors to get some respite from the battles ahead.
  • Chained Echoes – It’s been said that AAA games today spend at least an entire console generation’s lifecycle (roughly around 7-10 years) in development. Chained Echoes is far from a big-budget project but it spent 7 years getting made, and we’re glad Matthias Linda didn’t stop.
