The best indie games at E3 2019

These are the best indie games we've seen so far at E3 2019.

There’s been a lot of games at E3 2019 so far, but we’re only interested in the best indie games the show has to offer. Of course, we’ll take a bit more Cyberpunk 2077 (especially if Keanu’s on the cast list now) but at the end of the day, the number one thing we want out of the LA expo is lovely indie games to get lost in.

There have been quite a few with only Microsoft and the PC Gaming Show so far, but we’ll continue to update our list of the favorites when Nintendo shows off some more, no doubt.

Here are the best indie games shown on stage at E3 2019 so far.

The Best PC Gaming Show Indie Games

The PC Gaming show also had quite a few indie titles on show. There were obviously bigger titles such as the announcement of Chivalry 2 with the backing of publishers like Tripwire, but we were interested in these smaller titles that had interesting mechanics or art styles. Here's what we consider to be the best E3 2019 PC Gaming Show indie games.

(Not to toot our own horn, but we have previously featured Valfaris in our weekly Screenshot Saturday Showcase, because it has been looking good for a long time now)
