6 Steam Indies on sale this week (Week 17 2020)
If you’ve been a fan of our site for a while now then you knew this was coming. It’s this week’s list of 6 Steam Indies on Sale. As always we try to bring you the best games with the biggest discounts each week. Last Week’s List may still have a few active sales. But it’s time for us to dive in and look for some more.
To begin our list of 6 Steam Indies we have Polyball. Developed and published by Studio Monolith. Polyball remains their sole Steam entry at the moment. However, the game is still receiving updates and being polished, with new features like multiplayer and spectator being added as of late. The concept of the game is pretty simple. You have a low-poly ball in a low-poly world and need to get it from one place to another as quickly as possible. If you’ve played games like Super Monkey Ball or Marble Blast then you’ll know roughly what you’re in for. You can also get other skins for your marble which makes it look a little sleeker. Much like those other games, Polyball is notable for being quite challenging.
But at 100% off (yep it’s free at the moment!) until May 2nd it’s worth adding to your library even if you’re on the fence.
Flamebreak is an action-adventure roguelike with RPG, twin-stick shooter, and MOBA elements. Both developed and published by Nimbly Games. The top-down view might not be the best visual style. But the game is about far more than pretty visuals. Essentially what we have here is a roguelike, procedurally generated maps, permadeath, and tons of items. You also have 10 different races to unlock and play as each with their own stats and skills. Plus the items in the game have been created to stack so you can focus on pure situational damage (rogue with increased dagger speed + backstab and more) or any other number of builds. And that’s really where the fun lies. Each time you run the game you won’t know what is going to be waiting for you so you might accidentally stumble on an amazing build.
At 90% off until May 1st now is a great time to delve deep into mysterious lands and try to slay a god. And as a special bonus for this list, Nimbly Games have another game called Altitude that is free to play.
Invisigun Reloaded is an interesting mix of stealth, action, and party game. Developed and published by Sombr Studios. The concept of the game is simple, you are invisible and you need to shoot the other players (or CPU enemies for single-player). The really interesting part of the game though, is that you are invisible to yourself as well. And that’s where the fun comes in, you need to remain motionless to stay hidden, but you also need to find a nice vantage point that won’t leave you exposed. Moving through different elements will expose different indicators such as waves in water or footprints on dirt. And when you attack or use certain special moves you will become visible for a moment. Sometimes you’ll need to do this just to figure out where you are, which leads to some pretty thrilling and fun rounds.
At 90% off until May 7th Stealth be damned, run as fast as you can to pick this one up.
Crash Wheels is truth in advertising. The game developed and published by Quiet River is about two things, driving a car and smashing into stuff. Hence Crash Wheels, while it appears to be a racing game it’s probably closer to Guts and Glory obstacle tracks. There are a bunch of other cars on the track with you but you need to avoid them rather than beating them from what I can tell. The game is fairly short with 32 tracks in total. It also has a free crash mode where you can drive around and crash the car just to see the damage. It feels almost like a micro-budget BeamNG.Drive, but if graphics are a huge factor in your enjoyment level you might want to steer clear (not sorry). The car models look pretty decent but the levels are pretty stark and unappealing. But if you just want to race and smash there is fun to be had.
At 90% off until May 3rd, try not to crash on your way zooming down to pick this one up.
Following up on our list of 6 Steam Indies. We have another car-based game, however, Byte Driver is a completely different beast to Crash Wheels. Developed and published by Vector Hat. Byte Driver uses vector-based wireframe graphics and a color palette right out of any 80’s inspired media. The game appears to be a throwback to the very early days of arcade racing games. Where your car can kind of move from side to side and the level curves around you, kind of like the original Mario Kart, Chase H.Q. or Roadblasters. Those examples are all quite fitting because in addition to driving you’ll also be fighting, using your guns and mines to destroy enemies. However, unlike those games, you have a power meter and you need to keep your power up by hacking other cars. It’s complex, difficult, and fun with a radical 80’s synthwave soundtrack.
Another 90% off game until the 5th of May. Drive down and pick it up without the worry of being exploded by a helicopter (until you play the game of course).
And finally, to close out this week’s list of 6 Steam Indies on Sale. Toki Tori is a hybrid platformer and puzzle game. Developed by Two Tribes and published by the Two Tribes Publishing division. The concept is simple, control your little bird to find the egg in each level. You will be provided tools in each level which you need to use to achieve your goal. This is where the puzzle element comes in. As you will need to use the specific tools in the right way in order to get to the egg. There are a number of tools that are gradually introduced over the games 80+ levels. And the levels are split over 4 distinct worlds. Two Tribes have also tried to include simple levels for children and harder levels for adults to make the game appealing to families as well as solo gamers.
Another 90% off to round out this list of 6 Steam Indies. But this one is only on sale until April 28th so you’ll need to use all your ingenuity and speed to get there as soon as possible if you want to take advantage. Or just click the link below.
And there we go, another 6 Steam Indies on Sale list done and dusted. Well, I guess 7 if you include the bonus Nimbly Games title.

Coffee of choice: I like the sweeter kinds, mixed with chocolate, coconut, caramel etc. but I won’t turn down a flat white or a straight black either.
