    "I won't pretend LISA isn't a different game, but it's surely a fun one. I enjoy the setting (post-apocalyptic world) and the graphics are classic throwback. I have told all my friends about this game and highly suggest downloading it to play for yourself!"

    "Yes, Beat Cop is an indie game and it is on Steam, but it is not the only indie game on Steam. I don't understand how "indie games on Steam" is somehow a problem. I know what it means, not that there being indie games on Steam is a problem, but that there aren't any and that's a problem. It's just that it's not. There was Steam Greenlight, now Steam Direct, and that is the solution. Though I'm not fond of its $100 submission fee. Steam Greenlight was better. However, I digress. Beat Cop offers up only one solution. It is not the solution."

    "First of all this game is beautiful. I like playing these types of mystery games in general but this one is great because it actually has full controller support so I can sit on my couch and play through big picture. The gameplay and environment are immersive and the puzzles are challenging but not so difficult you want to give up. Wait for a good sale and snatch this one up."

    "There are lots of indie games on Steam. Finding a good one can be difficult. I recently found Jotun: Valhalla Edition. It is about Norse mythology. The hand drawn animations are real good looking. This game is a little different than most games I have played in a good way. I really like it and play it often."

    "Practice and experimentation is the best part of the game. In Magicka, you are a wizard and you control eight elements that you can unleash. I found myself on fire but was able to put it out with water. Then I brought back fire to dry out and warm up. I found that mastering the commanding of the eight elements across the eight keys led to much more game enjoyment."

The cool part of indie games is how unique each game is and how the storylines and aspects are so divers, and a game where you get to explore monuments and such from someones imagination are really cool. I highly recommend this game!"

    "Finding solid indie games to play can be a hassle. But Steam is one of those apps I enjoy messing with because they do have a good selection of independent games such as Rebuild 3: Gangs of Deadsville. This one is similar to the Sims series and Sim City, but with a different flavor of content. I dived into the Steam store and found a good bit of indie games with play ability."

    "I think this is a great indie game for Steam, but the link solution is not linking to a steam platform. This solution is linking to Google Play store, which wouldn't solve the Steam platform's issue. The style of the game looks great. It looks like it could be easily played on Steam, but currently the platform displayed is incorrect, which makes this solution to this problem incomplete."
