It's been a long month. You're probably tired of (still) plowing through The Witcher 3 or The Witness and ready for something new but, hey, bills and an empty bank account strike because of course they do. Well, lucky for you, we're here with some rad free games you should check out. Here are 15 of the best PC indie games that won't cost you a dime to download and play.

Sven Co-op

Sven Co-op started out as a Half-Life mod that let players play through the game cooperatively. Now, 17 years of dedicated support and development later, the mod has been released as its own fully-fledged game on Steam. The perfect game if you're looking to lay the beatdown on some monsters with other players.

Emily Is Away

Emily is Away is a short, touching interactive experience about heartbreak and falling in love on the internet. It's a nice little story that doesn't take that long to play.

Love space? Bouncing? Convertibles? Yeah, then you should check out this quirky and colorful sci-fi adventure.

You can download it here.


PIONEERS is a gorgeous looking game that's also quite complex and enjoyable to play. You lead a group of travelers across new lands in search of treasure and a way to leave their mark on history. The game's still in development but it's more than worth checking out the current build since it's free and there's plenty to do.

You can download PIONEERS here.


Oh...Sir! is a local multiplayer game where the goal is to beat your foe into submission with insults. It's a great, fun little game if you've got a friend over and are looking for something to do. No singleplayer or online multiplayer though (not yet, anyway).

You can grab Oh...Sir! here.

The Expendabros

The Expendabros is a tie-in game from Free Lives, the developer of Broforce, that's a over the top action game more than worth the time it takes to download and play regardless of whether you like the films or not. It's challenging, fun, and definitely amusing.

Plangman is billed as a game that "blends hangman and platforming" but that doesn't do its weirdness justice. Check out its delightful trailer:

Relic Hunters Zero

Look. The pitch for Relic Hunters Zero is that it's a game about "shooting evil space ducks and evil space turtles with tiny cute guns." Nothing I can say is going to top that. That said: it is a pretty fun game that plays like a gentler version of Nuclear Throne.
