The relationship between Nintendo and indie developers seems to be getting stronger by the day. We've seen characters such as Shovel Knight represented as an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and now the developer behind Crypt of the NecroDancer is working on a special Zelda cross-over known as Cadence of Hyrule.
In celebration of indies on the Switch, Nintendo has shared a list of the best-selling indie games to-date at the 2019 Game Developers Conference. Although no sale figures were provided, it's still interesting to see the most popular games (in no particular order):
- Stardew Valley
- Hollow Knight
- Overcooked 2
- Dead Cells
- Enter the Gungeon
- Graceful Explosion Machine
- Golf Story
Some of the games that have dropped out of the list since last year include Kamiko, Fast RMX, SteamWorld Dig 2 and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. The new entries on the above list are Hollow Knight, Overcooked 2, Undertale, Dead Cells and Graceful Explosion Machine.
