This game was released earlier this month and was promoted across a large handful of indie channels, so I don't know whether it qualifies as a "niche game," but! It's obscure, it's probably going to remain obscure, and I like it a whole lot!



Strawberry Cubes is a pay-what-you-want platformer for Windows. You move through mesmerizing, glitchy fixed screens with an expansive, mostly hidden movement vocabulary, climbing plants, ringing bells, and collecting purple icons for occult reasons. The focus is on exploration, both of the game's (jarring but pleasantly benign) space and of its (not at all benign) hidden systems.
