Clearly, we all were home last year and many things at home like cooking, work from home, music and gaming took precedence. Well gaming is not just for kids but also for adults.
Well escapism is one thing.
Also, recent research has proved that gaming has numerous benefits and key among them, is the development of cognitive skills in both children and adults. Just as physical exercise helps in improving and strengthening your muscles, cognitive games help to indulge one’s brain in constant stimulation, thus improving the brain’s performance”, Opines Hirav Shah, Business Strategist and Astrologer.

Here’s Ten Best Indie Video Games Picked Up By Hirav Shah, to look for, in 2021.


The most recent announcement during Game Awards 2020 was that of “Season” . This was one of the games that stood out from the event. The game features a woman who is collecting memories of a gorgeous, mysterious world. It is an atmospheric, wonderful game. It is coming real soon. Just hang in there.

2.Night In The Woods

At the end of everything, hold on to anything. If you’re a nihilist who needs hope, this game is made for you. With some of the most realistic character interactions I’ve ever seen in any artistic medium, and a tone that somehow manages to simultaneously be deeply funny and deadly serious, NITW is a narrative masterpiece. Be prepared to cry, but like, in a good way.


Celeste is a joy. It’s the most satisfying platformer of the list. The music is a soaring chiptune delight, the levels are perfectly balanced to grow in difficulty with your skill, the art is amazing, and the story is awesome. You simply could not ask for a more perfect game. If you need something uplifting to get you through the day, Celeste is a perfect go-to recommendation.

4.The Endless Empty

This is a hidden gem if there ever was one. The entire game takes place within the brain of a dying man, as its last sparks of consciousness fight to stay alive. It’s basically like Inside Out, if Inside Out was co-written by Salvador Dali and Edgar Allan Poe. The Endless Empty is a dark place, but it carries a very positive message at its core that will stick with you long after the end.


At this point it’s a cliché to mention, but it’s mentioned so often for a reason. If you haven’t played it yet, and you’ve somehow managed to not have it spoiled by the internet… Let’s just say if you like surreal RPGs with both humour and horror elements, you’re in for a good time. The battle system is incredibly innovative as well, and the music is pure distilled awesomeness.

6.Everything Is Going To Be Ok

This is not an easy game to play, in the same way that Hiroshima is not an easy book to read. If you can’t play the whole thing, at least play “Page 22,” and click on the telephone whenever it appears. If you can handle the brutalist atmosphere and play through the whole experience with an open mind, you stand to gain tremendously. It will be an uplifting experience for sure.

7.Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight is a game to get lost in. With its incredibly beautiful art, challenging fluid gameplay, and soul-stirring music, it’s easy to spend hours wandering the strange lands of Hollownest. There’s a deep lore here to explore, and plenty of delightful creatures to meet. The world is incredibly immersive, and you will absolutely love every minute of it. Just be prepared for some hard (but always fair) fights ahead if you want to make it out alive. It will keep you alert and on your toes throughout.

8.Yume Nikki

If you’re in the mood for some fast-paced fighting against epic enemies in a beautiful broken pixel landscape that tells a dark story through pure visuals… this is for you.
With some of the best music yet from the awesome composer Disasterpiece, and awe-inspiring visuals ,this game is known to make people vigilant, observant and watchful.


An excellent sci-fi Old Western video game musical. Yes, you read that right. Your every action is narrated, and as you explore a world that literally crumbles and rebuilds itself around you, you learn the history of this strange universe. The music is some of the most powerful in any video game ever, and the ending will leave you thinking for a long time. Top-down action-adventure awesomeness.

10.Hyper Light Drifter

This is not a game everyone will enjoy. It’s a lonely, bleak, and unsettling creation, and pushes the limits of the art form in several ways. Most of your time as a player is spent wandering across massive landscapes, with scant visual information to guide you, looking for the collectable items that are required to “beat” the game. There is a deep horror in the simple pixelated RPG Maker graphics that make up Yume Nikki, and a very dark and very mysterious backstory that to this day remains partially unresolved. The music is composed of short second-long loops, and eventually drives the player into a trance-like state where time seems to lose meaning. The reason it’s on this list is not because it is fun to play (although some people find it strangely relaxing), but because playing it is a transformative experience. Yes, it is.
