Indiecraft is an aesthetic that emerged in the mid-2000s alongside Hipness Purgatory, in which they both share common aspects. It's characterized by its heavy emphasis on handcrafted imagery (ex. collage and maquettes), charming and cozy atmosphere utilizing warm colors, and childlike imagination using techniques like stop motion and 3D illustrations of papercraft-like objects (especially in video games).
