About

Oberion analyzes your gaming library and gives you personal recommendations based on what you play

Mission

The goal is to raise awareness for innovative but hidden indie gems.

Too many high-quality indie games go unnoticed. Passionate developers who have put hundreds and thousands of hours of development time into their games should not be forced to abandon video games simply because nobody knows about their projects. Oberion solves this challenge which has been described as the "discoverability problem".

At the same time players who like niche games or just crazy new indie games should not spend hours searching for that one game that will blow their mind again. Oberion makes your gaming library more transparent, easily browsable, and similar games comparable at a glance.

The scattered landscape of different online stores is brought together here at Oberion.

Oberion is your personal curated storefront

I want to make small games discoverable. Games without a marketing budget should always have a chance to find the audience they deserve. I am talking about games which are high-quality, receive good reviews and are created by passionate people. Oberion is my contribution to solve this problem.
