7 New Indie Games You Should Play Right Now

From 'Oxygen Not Included' and 'Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator' to a 'Monument Valley' sequel. The rising stars you shouldn't overlook

Witch It

Witch It is a zany hide-and-seek multiplayer game where villagers hunt down rogue witches through vaguely medieval castles and hamlets. Witches can disguise themselves as one of a hundred props throughout each map, while villagers (as you might have guessed) try to find them. The basic premise lends itself to all kinds of dynamic, jump scare-based play, as you try to sneak about and surprise your friends.

That angle has made the game popular with a couple of YouTubers, but, so far it hasn't picked up quite the following that some of the others on this list have. Still, it's a promising take on competitive play that gives us something other than shooting one another to death with dozens of hyper-realistic guns to look forward to.

As the developers work out some kinks (the game is in Steam Early Access), they've said they'll add more maps, props, and abilities for all players. For now though, you get quite a bit for $14.99.
