The Nintendo Switch eShop has deals on the 'best-selling indie games of 2019'


You know, if you have anything left in your budget...

The latest sale on the Nintendo Switch eShop is all about quality, not quantity. A dozen of the "best-selling indie games of 2019" are running deals until December 28, 2019 at 11:59pm Pacific.

Nintendo even put together a highlight reel under its Indie World banner.

Best-selling indie games of 2019 sale

Without knowing the exact criteria used to select the games, some of these are pleasant surprises. I wouldn't have necessarily expected SteamWorld Quest or My Friend Pedro to pop up as best-sellers in a concise year-end sale, but either way, neat. You're probably familiar with most if not all of those names by now, so if you need a nudge, I'd suggest Baba Is You, a wildly inventive language-based puzzle game.

Three other big-hitting indie titles Katana Zero, Wargroove, and Untitled Goose Game also appeared in the Indie World recap video. They aren't being discounted, but they're all very good games.

If you've already exhausted the list, that huge holiday eShop sale with over 700 games is still active. On a whim, I bought Graveyard Keeper a Stardew Valley-like crafting game about running a sketchy medieval morgue and I've been playing it obsessively. The story goes places I wasn't expecting.

Have you latched onto anything in these digital holiday sales? I may need to double dip for Cuphead.
