Indie Games That Pushed Boundaries at E3

This year’s E3 had more than ever independent games on display. Many of them brought a high level of polish and finesse to their creations, with beautiful art and smart design. Most first-person shooters take sharp reflexes and precision accuracy as their metrics of success. Superhot does need those skills, but also a crafty sense of space and time. In this creative take on the twitchy arcade shooter, time only moves when the player does. You must amass followers, strength, money and other resources to transition from being a mere serf to being the royal leader of your dreams in the game 'Royals'. The combination of game mechanics and the retro art style give Royals a fresh feel even though it trades in nostalgia.
