Was there something in the water? Something in the air? As the year draws to a close, Calvin French, creator of the previously-highlighted adventure The Real Texas celebrates “a banner year for indie games” by linking all the past 9 months’ greatest in handy list format, chronologically ordered, over at twntytwlv.com.
One quick look and you’ll realize that it really was a banner year, and there’s still months left to go. [via Calvin French]
Every month, as part of the regular monthly meetings of the Austin, TX independent game community JUEGOS RANCHEROS, we do a very casual & chatty rundown of the ten or so games from the previous month — both local and global, and both indie and occasionally a bit-bigger-budget — for the audience, to give people — especially those curious onlookers from outside the indie community itself — a look at what they may have missed.
In keeping with the tongue-in-tobacco-packed-cheek tone, we call these run-downs A Fistful of Indies, which are be presented here on Venus Patrol for your reference, each fully-annotated, -linked, and off-the-cuff blurbed, in addition to their home on the JUEGOS RANCHEROS site.
