7) El Hijo – A Wild West Tale

Next on the list of one of the best indie games you should play on Utomik is El Hijo – A Wild West Tale.

It’s an exciting Western stealth game. A 6-year-old boy on his quest to find his mother. As a six-year-old, “El Hijo” must always sneak past the dangers of his world.

The journey begins when a farmer and her son are attacked by bandits who raze their farm to the ground. The mother decides to leave the boy at a secluded monastery to protect him. However, the place doesn’t feel right and he plans his escape.

“El Hijo – A Wild West Tale” is a non-violent stealth game in which you rely on the mischievous, playfulness of a young child. Using the shadows to his advantage is the core element of the game, as “El Hijo” will often have to hide. Without needlessly adding new mechanics, the gameplay is extended naturally, as variations of existing mechanics are gradually introduced and then combined to increase the challenge. These twists on familiar mechanics are often a product of the varied, increasingly dangerous environments that “El Hijo” must traverse to reach his ultimate goal.

8) God Of Light: Remastered

God of Light: Remastered is a definitive version of the original award-winning game played by over 15 million people.

The Remastered edition features new HD graphics, tailored to light-physics controls and a remastered soundtrack by UNKLE.
