Some of the best independent video games on Nintendo Switch are now on sale.
The latest festive sale to launch on the North American Nintendo eShop discounts the price of over 30 indie games.
Fans of Picross should absolutely try Mediatonic’s Murder by Numbers, which blends the enduring puzzle format with a wild, offbeat mystery narrative. It’s one of our Game of the Year picks for 2020, as is Spiritfarer, the poignant sandbox simulation from Thunder Lotus Games.
One of our GOTY choices from 2019 was Adam Robinson-Yu’s A Short Hike. The game came to Switch this summer, and enchanted us all over again. Other sale highlights include early Switch hit Golf Story, the one-of-a-kind Cuphead, Night in the Woods, and Mark of the Ninja: Remastered.
The Nintendo eShop Indie World Sale sale ends on January 2, 2021. Here’s the full lineup of discounted games.
