The last five or six years have seen quite a few locally developed games coming down the pike.
Between Desktop Dungeons, Snail Boy and Toxic Bunny HD, we've had a quality clutch of entries.
But the last two years or so have seen the industry rocket to new heights, so here are a few relatively recent South African titles you should look at.
A game about bizarre penis-butt creatures? Yep. You have to... enter... your opponents to win? Indeed.
Genital Jousting is one of the weirdest games you'll ever see, as you and up to seven friends try to frantically avoid each other.
The game is set for an April 2016 release so do keep an eye on it via their website.
It feels like Free Lives' Broforce has been available for ages, but the game only went into Early Access in 2014.
In case you didn't know, Broforce is a side-scrolling action game akin to Contra, as you blast through the levels (literally, in many cases), take out a variety of enemies and rescue POWs.
The title made quite the splash, even receiving an add-on, dubbed Expendabros, as a tie-in for The Expendables 3.
The game is available for R159 on Steam, with a PS4 version also available as this month's PlayStation Plus game. Get it.
I might be biased, as Rodain Joubert (one of the two people working on Cadence, along with Peter Gardner) is a friend. After all, it would be tough to say the game is utter trash, right?
Anyway, I found Cadence to be a pleasant music/puzzle title, as players form a loop to keep the musical notes going. Whether it's the music or visuals, it's all very stark. But the gameplay will soon have you scratching your head.
Viscera Cleanup Detail
Ever wondered what happens in the aftermath of a shootout in a first-person shooter? Well, someone has to clean up the muck...
First released in April 2014 and seeing a full Steam release in October 2015, Viscera Cleanup Detail sees you using a mop and bucket instead of a plasma rifle.
Between spent cartridges, blood and bodies, you'll have your work cut out for you. But the sandbox environment means that you can just make a bigger mess if you really want to. Also, the game supports split-screen cooperative play - talk about a clean sweep.
Viscera Cleanup Detail is available on Steam for R139.
An early Kickstarter success, Stasis managed to raise over $130 000 on the crowdfunding platform. What was the result then?
Well, we've got a horror/adventure title that's inspired by classic sci-fi horror movies and the Dead Space games. You'll be cracking puzzles, trying hopelessly to avoid death and slowly unravelling the story.
Stasis is available on Steam for R249.
Update: We erroneously included Shower With Your Dad Simulator in the list, thanks to Make Games SA for the heads-up!
