There are plenty of indie games coming out soon, but which ones stand out above the rest?

10. Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut (Wii U)

Current Release Date: Q4 2013

First person puzzle games have become somewhat of a phenomenon since Portal was introduced, and Toxic Games’ Q.U.B.E seems to be following up on its success. Similarly, you are placed in a testing chamber in which you must solve puzzles to escape. However, what sets Q.U.B.E apart from Portal is the protagonist’s block manipulating gloves. These gloves serve as the main mechanic of the game, helping the player move around various blocks in physics based puzzles, which each react differently depending on the type of block you are manipulating. It’s quite fitting for a game that has a title that stands for Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion!

Wii U will be getting an updated, extended version of the game called Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut. This version of the game will feature an all-new story, a different original soundtrack, new puzzles to solve, and a time-trial mode, effectively making this the definitive version of the game.

    Two things. First, if they were further along in development I’d add the Kickstarter projects Hyper Light Drifter and Paradise Lost–and fairly high up–but since they’re really still at the stage of hopeful we can just keep them in mind for a similar list this time next year. Second, if you made a list of the top ten anticipated major studio games, I’d be hard pressed to say which I’d rather play, especially if you excluded games like Zelda U and X, which are similarly not far enough along (so far as we know). I hope that says more about indie gaming than it does the major studios.

    Really anticipating Two Brothers, that game has a lot of potential and makes me happy to see a developer showing appreciation for Game Boy’s graphical stylings; GB games are often unceremoniously slammed for their graphics, which is a real shame.

    Interested in 5 out the 10 listed… including a couple that I hadn’t heard of before this article. Not bad!

    Lots of indie games don’t live up to the hype, but there have been enough really *really* good ones to make up for any disappointment. 3DS eShop has been by far the best part of that console for me, and it looks like Wii U has a lot of great content coming before long too. Awesome!
