OK/NORMAL is an experimental arcade game by Toni Koretelahti that embraces the visuals of early PlayStation games. The game, which captures the strange and abstract worlds of mid-90s 3D, is one of several new indie titles that embrace a new form of "retro" aesthetics.

Settling a bet with Rock, Paper, Scissors is nice but it's even better when you can read the future. In Fortune 499, you use fortune-telling cards to predict your opponent's move and win battles against the demons attacking the human resources department. Fun combat and a unique twist on magical bureaucracy make it a perfect Indie Pick.

Bleed 2 initially released last year for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, but was ported to the Switch this month. It's a relentless action game full of air dashes, bullet deflecting, and tons of bosses that feels freshly sprung from the mind of an eight-year-old on a sugar high.

Uurnog Uurnlimited feels like a knock-off Super Mario Bro 2. It's a blocky platform puzzler where you pick up and throw everything, from enemies to bombs. It's a bit rough around the edges, but its freeform approach to puzzle design means that you're able to come up with your own solutions. It's a sneaky little game that might have slipped past your radar.

Dandara is an action game where you can't run. Your character leaps from wall to wall across massive maps while battling bosses and collecting power ups. It takes the exploration of Metroid and adds a ton of style.
