Although posted way back on June 15th 2010, I only discovered this yesterday. So for those who haven’t seen it, Pixel Prospector has a video featuring 253 free indie games, in 10 minutes, and I want to play almost all of them. I apologise I’m not able to recreate their video here, and that only one game is shown above...
Their page with the video is HERE. They also list every game featured, along with links to further information and how to get it. I warn you though, it’s pretty intense, and you may miss something if you watch it one go - better to watch it in 2-3 minute increments, then pause to make notes and reflect on what you like.
When I see that there are this many good indie games out there, I have to ask, why the hell are multiformat print magazines not covering these? EDGE and GamesTM have microscopic coverage at best, while the newly relaunched EGM and GameFAN don’t seem to have any coverage at all (based on the first issues of both - I've not seen the second). For shame!
Oh, and don’t forget JoyToKey!
