Our top 4:

We’re down to four final games: Shovel Knight, Persona 5, Transistor, and Undertale, with Trails of Cold Steel, Risk of Rain, and Drakengard 3 leaving us. A very strong showing for the indie scene, representing 3 of our top 4. Will Persona 5 be able to call upon the legacy of JRPG success and eke one out for traditional studios? Or will it be felled by the 8-bit throwback vibes of one Shoveled Knight? And even among indies, can the “we have an office!” of Supergiant Games overcome the “built by Toby Fox in Andrew Hussie’s basement” authenticity of Undertale? Stay tuned!
