    I can't believe no one has mentioned Dead Cells. While it is a rogue like Metroidvania, it does a good job of making each run through different by randomizing the biomes and enemies. Super fun, I've put over 100 hours into my Steam version since it was in early access.

    Cave Story. IDK how it wasn't mentioned yet. It's the first major indie game, and the Switch version is the b e s t.

    Have recently been playing Hollow Knight, which I'm loving, but decided to leave a comment to look into all the other suggestions when I finish it.
    Thanks!;)

    I think Blasphemous is worth mentioning, besides the acclaimed Hollow Knight.

    Definitely gotta give a shoutout to Shinsekai: Into the Depths. An underwater-based Metroidvania that focuses on resource gathering and exploration over a ton of combat, with great level and sound design.

    I had a blast with Vigil: The Longest Night. It has its flaws and it takes some time to get used to it, but it's well worth it. Graphics might seem kind of bad by looking at the screenshots, but it's actually a gorgeous game.

    Dead Cells by far, the game is insane.
    Kids (and I) loved Ori and the blind forest too.
