I don’t know about you dear readers, but hobbies can be pretty expensive! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I spent on manga just last month alone, but even that pales in comparison to the amount of games I buy each month. Most indie games are pretty cheap, anywhere from two bucks to $25, and some of the more mainstream releases can sometime take you back $40 or more and that can add up! Not everyone has the disposable income to buy every new game that comes out, and no that doesn’t mean I condone piracy, because NO.
But, rather than pirating a game, there are some free indie game options that are just as good if not more so than the bigger budget games on the market—and who doesn’t like saving a bit of cash and getting a quality game? So, whether you’re an avid gamer or someone who plays only a handful of games a year, here are some free games that’ll be a welcome addition to your gaming library.
While these games are free, throwing the devs a few bucks in tips is always appreciated~

The other day I came across, Loving You Fully on Twitter and I was immediately taken in by this charming visual novel that focuses not on romantic love, but on self love.

I picked up a copy of this game during the last big Steam sale and like most games I buy, I promptly forgot all about it. But, fittingly it was an odd twist of fate that prompted me to “rescue” WILL: A Wonderful World from the dusty recesses of my backlog and I am so glad that I did! From the moment I started the game all the way to the very end, this game is one HELL of a wild ride. High school students in love, kung fu fighting police detectives, assassins, and even a scrappy alley cat make up the game’s eclectic cast of characters and you play as an amnesiac god who controls all of their fates with the flick of a pen.
