You can probably guess a few, but can you name all 10 without looking?

Following yesterday's Nindie Showcase, Nintendo dropped some details on the performance of indie games on Switch.

In a session at the Game Developer's Conference, Nintendo confirmed that sales of independent titles were up 95% in the last twelve months when compared to the launch year. The top 10 sellers among indie game, with no rankings given, were:

  • Stardew Valley
  • Undertale
  • Dead Cells
  • Overcooked
  • Overcooked 2
  • Golf Story
  • Enter the Gungeon
  • Hollow Knight
  • Graceful Explosion Machine
  • Celeste

Half of the top 10 indies were 2018 releases.

Wow, I've only played 2.  But some have sparked my interest and there's one I bought and never played.

Stardew valley
Enter the gungeon (my legit fav game of all time)
Hollow Knight are the ones i have played and can say very much that they are amazing.

Well, there you have it. Nindies suck.

I own seven of them, and while I only enjoyed six, two of them are two of my absolute favorite games ever now.

I wonder how many times these kinds of lists propels MORE sales for these titles.  I've adored my time with Stardew Valley, Dead Cells, and Overcooked 1, but this list has reminded me that I haven't gotten around to Undertale or Celeste yet.
