Drawing inspiration from the classic era of 8-bit video games, Faith is a pixelated survival horror, indie game for PC that is free to play. The game follows John Ward, a priest, who goes back to a house where a year ago (the game’s timeline), an exorcism had gone wrong. With five different endings, this is one game that we found, intriguing, exciting and absolutely engaging.

In case you are looking up for a horror themed adventure RPG, Grimm’s Hollow is the perfect choice we feel. Released during Halloween 2019, it is a free to play indie game. The game follows the lead character Lavender as she goes through Hollow (the town where the game’s action is centred) and ghost caverns on her quest to find her brother. Apart from the gameplay, we absolutely loved the 2D maps and Lavender’s interactions with the townspeople, amongst others. You will not be disappointed by this one, we promise.

For those that love a good math puzzle as a de-stressing activity, we give a giant thumbs up Handulum+. This game is one of those puzzle games that deceives the players into thinking that it is one of the simple one. However, the beauty of the game lies in its simplicity. Across small levels, players need to use a combination of muscle memory, physics of momentum and intuition to click a falling ball and carrying it over to the finish line. We highly recommend this free to play indie game to anyone who loves a good puzzle game.

Next on our list of free to play indie games for PC is Helltaker. Simply put, it is a short game that revolves around “sharply dressed demon girls”. The game which is a puzzle adventure game has some elements of a dating sim thrown into a mix that we felt fit right into the gameplay. Follow the protagonist, The Helltaker as he descends into hell to grow his harem of demons. With three different endings, we say, go for it. In case you loved it, the developer, Vanripper, has even tweeted comic strips that follow the game’s storyline that may or may not be canon.

This is one entertaining and engaging game. And we loved playing.
