Having gaming as a hobby always means that there is so little time to experience all the games you want to play. Not to mention that gaming can be expensive. Due to that, there are plenty of indie games on my Nintendo eShop wish list that are waiting for me to buy and download. Below, in no particular order, are my top 5 indie wish list games.
Raji: An Ancient Epic
I remember this game appearing on a Nintendo Indies Direct sometime in 2020. I was enthralled with the gorgeous artwork and a nice puzzle, action-adventure game seemed to be right up my alley. I’m looking forward to when I can give this game as shot.
We’ve heard nothing but good things about this game from friends who have given it a try already. Another game that looks enchanting, you take on the role of someone helping deceased spirits to the afterlife. It’s a game that takes a heavy subject and seems like it wants to make it lighthearted or charming. Either way, I’m sure I’m going to tear up.
Simulation games are one of my favorite genres and I’m a sucker for cute animals. Calico boasts chill gameplay with a low-stress and creative environment for players to enjoy. Taking on the role of a new villager, your task is to revitalize the cat cafe with pastries and fuzzy animals, so this seems right for me!
Best Friend Forever
To go with Calico, we have another simulation game that revolves around animals. Best Friend Forever is a visual novel/dating sim that stars the player and their dog. That game boasts about a diverse cast of characters as well as giving the player free reign on gender and sexuality. And it has dogs! What more could you want?
When the Past was Around
Another game that may make us cry, When the Past was Around has the same developer as Coffee Talk, which Rachel and I are in the middle of now. When the Past was Around is a point-and-click puzzle game that is about love and letting go. The art looks beautiful and I’m looking forward to figuring out the puzzle pieces while hoping for a happy ending.
