Who could've thought this indie title would've finished the year on #7 of the most popular games of 2018 among rawgers easily beating a new Assassin's Creed, a new Tomb Raider, and a new Hitman? Video games are still full of surprises, and so is the blue ocean.
A small surivavl strategy about Vikings in the land of wolves and the undead slowly evolved into one of the best indie games of 2018. Building, resource management and fierce fights in Northgard will keep you engaged for a long while. For the glory of Clan!
A surreal puzzle adventure on garden islands. Travel back and forth in time and space to reveal their secrets. 
A classic action-RPG, but you play as a minstrel mouse. This is small creation of just five people but the love invested in Ghost of a Tale made it larger and worthy to be a GOTY.
Minit proves that with the solid gameplay you don't need fancy visuals or bombastic music. In fact, you don't need anything else. Give this game a try, at least for a couple of minutes.
You are a space dwarf. Fight your way through caves to find the greatest alien riches with three friends. You'll all be able to look like this: Isn't it the most badass dwarf game of the century?
Lucas Pope made it. Again.
You are a hole. Embrace it. Eat everything. Grow bigger. Eat more. The cutest level-destroying game you have seen this year.
Every year, fewer and fewer settings and jobs are left unrepresented in video games. Time for a medieval cemetery manager to get in the spotlight! Crafting, resources management and ethical dilemmas.
Carry your grandpa's ashes to a galactic funeral and reveal a universal conspiracy and save the princess along the way. Such is space in Breathedge. There's an immortal chicken too.
One of the most beautiful platformers is finally here for its GOTY award! Pencil and whatercolor graphics, whimsical music, and an unworldly story—that's how you create a powerful indie game.
An experiment merging live-action films and video games. It's a free puzzler with some psychological horror film and it shares the story with a short film. See the film below and go try the game, the place on this list is well-deserved.
