The Nintendo Switch has proven to be a haven for independent game developers. Whether it is because of just how well indie games lend themselves to a form factor like the Switch’s, or because of a lack of competition from larger AAA third parties, or because of how ridiculously easy the porting process to Switch really is, there has been a mad rush by most indie developers to get their games on Nintendo’s hybrid. And those games have been selling, like crazy.
Speaking at a GDC panel today, Nintendo has revealed the list of the ten indie games that have sold the most worldwide. Some names on this list won’t surprise anyone- games like SteamWorld Dig 2, Stardew Valley, Celeste, or Shovel Knight. Others might make you take pause.
