Welcome to the Editor's Choice awards for the 2018 Indie of the Year Awards, where we show recognition to the indie games from the past year that we've found to be personally deserving of attention.

Best Singleplayer

Book of Demons

From: Thing Trunk

Book of Demons is an upcoming, deck-building hack and slash adventure, where it's the player who decides the length of quests. The game is the first installment of Return 2 Games - a series of original mid-core titles, inspired by the early golden days of PC gaming.

Best Multiplayer


From: Gunpowder Games

Grim fantasy combined with thunderous naval combat in a vibrant, monster-saturated world! Captain an Orc, Dwarf or Human warship and sail the turbulent Abyssal Ocean to play online multiplayer, in free-for-all or squad based matches. Maelstrom is a third-person strategy game created by veteran developers from the Warhammer: Dawn of War series, Company of Heroes, League of Legends, and Overwatch.

Best Visuals


From: Cybernetic Walrus

Race perpetually on exquisitely detailed stages, full of light-speed danger, chaos and mayhem. Guide your Grav in three gameplay modes across four different worlds with three tracks each. These dynamic courses come to life, while pushing the power of Unity to the limit.

Most Creative

Dude, Stop

From: Patomkin

"Dude, Stop" is a puzzle game, where the main goal is to not follow the rules and make everybody hate you. Break it, abuse it, skip the tutorial, ignore tips and tricks in the loading menu and - most importantly! - mute the narrator.

Community Award


From: WashBear

Parkasaurus challenges the player to plan, design and construct fabulous exhibits that maximize both the happiness of their Dinos, and the park guests’ satisfaction and willingness to spend money! Starting with only a dream and an abandoned park the player will discover ground breaking technologies, new attractions and a special bond with each of their Dinos, all captured in stunningly beautiful modernized 3D flat design graphics.

Best Audio


From: Bit Kid, Inc.

Chasm is a 2D Action-RPG Platformer currently in development for Windows, Mac, & Linux. Taking equal inspiration from hack 'n slash dungeon crawlers and Metroidvania-style platformers, it will immerse you in a procedurally-generated fantasy world full of exciting treasure, deadly enemies, and abundant secrets. Pre-order now to receive exclusive bonus goodies! Both Steam and DRM-Free editions included.

Best Gameplay


From: Flow Fire Games

SYNTHETIK is an unforgiving shooter rogue-lite set in a world overrun by machines. Battle from floor to floor, defeating an array of robotic forces using powerful weapons, upgrades, and quick reflexes in this gun-play focused fun-fest!

Best Narrative


From: RadicalFishGames

A retro-inspired 2D Action RPG set in the distant future. CrossCode combines 16-bit SNES-style graphics with butter-smooth physics, a fast-paced combat system, and engaging puzzle mechanics, served with a gripping sci-fi story.

A tight 2D action/precision platformer where the game consists of endless user generated levels in early development. Designed for speedrunners, level creators, and fans of Super Mario Maker and games alike. In development by solo-dev Jake aka Baby Duka since February 2018 and with the DASH Team (Leary, B. Magic and Concerned) since August 2018.

Best in Show

Special award presented by mod.io, for a game we love with mod support coming.


By: Polymorph Games

Foundation is a grid-less, sprawling medieval city building simulation with a heavy focus on organic development, monument construction and resource management. The game features in-depth resource management akin to the Anno (Dawn of Discovery) series, expertly mixed with city building elements from Settlers, SimCity, and Pharaoh all topped with narrative encounters inspired by Crusader Kings II to create the ultimate medieval ant-farm simulation.
