This are my favourite kinds of games. Really cheaply made games, often free or very cheap, that you can tell were made for love not profit. The kind of things you see for free on sites like Itch.io, the fanwork games sold at Reitaisai or Comiket, the silly, cheap mods of larger games like TF2's mario_kart or trade_plaza, the gaming world's equivalent of the music world's "lo-fi", essentially. While I'll enjoy AAA games and big budget releases, cheap and obscure games will always be my favourites.

Does anyone else feel like this?

Please refrain from political shitposting about Gamergate esque indie dev drama, that's not what this is for.

Thanks for these maps!


Does anyone remember this game from the early 2000s/late 90s where you explore planets that were producerally generated? It was made by a computer science student I think and it was free, I can't remember its title.

No Man's Land

it is surprising, and I know many late niggers will not agree with me.

but as a guy who kept up with akabur since the days of newgrounds and I could tell those flash games and his games are so filled with love and desire for obscurity.

which is why he doesn't even encourage for new pledges on his patreon putting links with other people instead.


You mean No Man's Sky?


Nice little bump for alice

late reply but thanks for sharing wiz


Have you guys ever tried digging into some open source games? Maybe they're not the obscure ones, but if the author's giving you a copy of their game gratis, along with its source code, you can bet he does it for love and not profit; even more so do ones who contribute voluntarily.


Is there a japanese itch.io? Where can I find doujin games?


Fuck me, where have all these game suggestions been my whole life? This entire thread is gold.

Just to add to the pile:



Thank you for sharing. I've played it yesterday and the atmosphere has blown me away.


hollow knight



Anyone know of other games like this? I've been playing it but the difficulty of mobs gets ridiculous after floor 12.

Or just decent 3D games in general? I have nothing against 2D but I'd like to play some 3D for a change on this toaster of mine.


do you or does anyone else here know of any japanese equivalents of itch.io? i'd like to have a larger variety, tho now that i know of itch.io thanks to this thread i have a lot to check out


Are there any games on Itch.io that work on toasters? I'm too poor to afford a new computer so I'm running on XP and every game I've tried to play crashed before even booting up. I figured low-tech looking games would be best but apparently I was way off.



Dig around japanese internet (or english sites about japan) and look for things posted. Most doujin games are released either for free on geocities-esque personal sites or in discs at a convention.

What do you think the best Yume Nikki style game is?


Yume Nikki is the one. I've been considering immerse myself on all the fan made Yume Nikki games but for whatever reason I never actually do it.

.flow is my favorite yume nikki fangame so far, cant really name any others that are as good


thanks for this link

Try updating your direct x, it might be outdated and that is why the games are not running.


I missed these, could anyone re-upload them?

Fleshchild is excellently made, and certainly one of the best out there. It really is unfortunate that it was abandoned by its developer.


What about 2kki?

>abandoned by its developer

like the rest of them


Do open source games count?

Yes. Check this one:

Red Eclipse

Open source arena shooter with parkour movement and different game modes. Every weapon has two shoot modes and you can use a sword, grenades and mines.


The community is nice, but very small. Sometimes you would need to join a server and wait a couple of minutes until other people start joining.


The music and visuals appeals to me. But it's so fast.. Watching people playing it though is really comfy


SCP Games. Although, only Containment Breach is really a game



This is a good game.
Touhou shooter with more arcade elements.

free ww2 fps, the development is in full progress despite few people playing.
it used to be a mod for Red Orchestra 1, now you don't need it to play. The game has a lot more content and features than Red Orchestra 2 despite being free.


looks good, i will check it out


Went into that website Itch.io that you linked. The first thing I found was "Gender Wrecked", a 'genderpunk' game where you kiss and make out with things, seducing a "robot dad" all the while exploring this "mysterious entity called gender". Also:


>Reitaisai, apparently an anime convention

Fucking kill yourself you disgusting normgroid. Please go back to /r9k/, Tumblr and Reddit. Fuck you and leave us alone you fucking piece of shit. Your kind will never take this last bastion of hope away from us.


Nice butthurt over a post made more than 2 years ago.
Also stop trying to fit in so hard.


Wow! this guy is a cool wizard just like us!



>Reitaisai, apparently an anime convention
I don't know whether it's hating anime or not knowing what Reitaisai actually is that makes you a bigger normalshit pleb.


>anime is non normie




rip daddy


If you don't like anime you can fuck off back to your normalshit forums.


I like katana Zero. Is it indie enough?


That was not his point. His point was that normalshitters have clearly taken over the anime hobby and are trying their best to ruin it. It resists, because japan (thankfully) doesn't give a flying fuck what white people think.

Is it possible to run .flow without changing the system locale? Is that what any of you guys had to do to get it to work?


Not on NuWindows. Used to be you could just install pAppLocale and launch any executable in another locale through the context menu, but Windows 10 devs purposely botched support. You could try running a past Windows running on a virtual machine.

Win 10 is advertised by Microsoft as great for gamers and yet it totally broke old DX, locale, input, and other things not relevant to current gen. Really makes you "huh.."



Damn, that sucks. As you might have guessed I am, in fact, using Windows 10. I also tried Locale Emulator, but it doesn't work with the latest Windows 10 update (doesn't appear in the context menu). Never thought that playing some random YN fan game would turn out to be this much of hassle.


Try it on a windows 7 virtual machine.



I think I'd rather just try changing the system locale, being that I have no idea how to set up a virtual machine and it seems like even more work for something which, like I said already, should just be as easy as click it & play it. At this point, I guess I'll just forget about it for the time being. Just too much of a hassle. Maybe someone will sort it out to work better with modern systems in the future, but I doubt it.


Setting up a virtual machine is fairly easy and will solve this kind of problems for most games though.
Virtual box, an iso and installing the host additions is all you need to get it working.

It's incredible how, not too long ago (5, 10 years ago?), I had a real disdain for indie games. That was when they were really first coming to prominence, and they were the realm of insufferable hipsters spurning out garbage "games" with 2deep4u plots & art direction. Nowadays, those types are mostly gone & forgotten, and indie games are the only sort of game that give me any enjoyment anymore. Great enjoyment at that. Most AAA games are far too rote and boring for me nowadays, with most of them focusing on flash and cinematics at the expense of gameplay, but when you find that one indie title with so much love and fun poured into it, it's like playing a game as a kid again.


This, I hate it when people on here say 'uh hur dur 2hu is too normie bro', its a really fucking good series, and normalfags don't know anything outside of the mainstream games, and the literal 10 year old shitpost/memes surrounding the first 10 games.
