PCGamesN Nvidia Showcase posts are created in partnership with Nvidia.
Indie gaming is exploding with new, must-play games developed by smaller studios arriving all the time. The quality, depth and visual fidelity featured in many indie titles also demonstrate how you don’t need to be a AAA game developer to deliver some of the best gaming experiences on PC.
NVIDIA is committed to supporting the indie scene, too. Arriving just in time for the holiday season, their latest bundle allows you to get one of three great indie games free when you upgrade your rig with a new qualifying GTX GPU.
For a limited time when you pick up a new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, GTX 1050 graphics card or system, or GeForce GTX 1060 laptop, you can have your pick of one of the following three indies for free.
Developed exclusively for HTC Vive on VR-ready PCs (armed with a GTX 1060 or above), Survios’ Raw Data is a visceral, fast-paced first-person action game that puts players in the role of an elite SyndiK8 operative who’s tasked with infiltrating the sinister Eden Corporation and retrieving vital raw data. Standing in your way are Eden’s powerful robotic forces, which you must destroy by utilizing Raw Data’s VR motion controls that involve dual-wielding pistols, slicing with katanas, pumping heavy shotguns and even deploying nanotech abilities.
Featuring optional support for VR headsets including Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Redout is a face-meltingly fast futuristic racer that plays not unlike a visually stunning reboot of classic titles like F-Zero and Wipeout. The game’s vibrantly detailed visuals and action also effectively illustrate how indie games can look just as pretty as big budget blockbusters. And with more than 75 racing events spread out over 20 tracks, there’s a lot of content to sink your teeth into with Redout.
If a video game experience a little more out of left field is something that appeals to you, this third and final indie game you can get free is definitely worth a look. Developed by Finish Line Games, Maize is a delightfully bizarre first-person adventure centered around the aftermath of a pair of scientists who engineer sentient corn. While its premise is admittedly absurd, the game is quite compelling and is already receiving a lot of positive buzz online from gamers and critics.
