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.

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.

You are a hole. Embrace it. Eat everything. Grow bigger. Eat more. The cutest level-destroying game you have seen this year.

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.

This tough blend of a rogue-like and a Metroidvania with pixelated gothic aesthetics took everyone by surprise this year. It's a perfect mix of fun from winning and frustration from dying repeatedly, and procedurally generated levels and a swarm of abilities and power-ups make the game infinitely replayable.

Celeste is a platforming masterpiece, tight and mastefully designed. Since the beginning of the year, it has won so many hearts ♥ (and strawberries 🍓) for its gameplay and the plot. Yes, that thing that some platformers don't even bother to have. The wonderful music is another Celeste's forte, and if you have already played it, go on to watch this video as to why it was so powerful. 
If you haven't played Celeste, we really envy you. Go play it!

The adventures of the strange black mohair creature and his cherished cherry. Multiply Botanicula's plot by zero and it's cuteness by ten and you'll get Chuchel, the silliest indie fun this year.

Imagine Spore, but you are stuck on the cell stage. Yep, that's Sipho, an action-survival game where you have to build an über-cell and set off on the eat-or-be-eaten adventure. It's just out in Steam's Early Access, but can already qualify for an indie GOTY!
