I believe we used to have one of these, but I have no idea what happened to it. I see that Minecraft has become a total hit among MT members so I wanted to start a thread about Indie Games (ie. the games that will never disappoint you because they're mostly free). I'd have to say I have more faith in indie games than any single commercial company as indie devs are not limited by public opinion or sales quotas. They just make games they want to make. This, in turn, churns out some of the most innovative and refreshing games I've seen.

Ones that are already popular among MT members:
- Vanguard Princess
- Dwarf Fortress
- Super Meat Boy (well, really just popular among Jubehs)
- Minecraft
- Bootfighter: Windom XP
- Battle for Wesnoth
- Clockwords
- CAVE STORY (capitalized for epic win; also, coming to Wiiware!)
- La Mulana (also coming to Wiiware)
- Sumotori Dreams (mentioned for lols)
- Offroad Raptor Safari
- Transformice
- Silver Knights
- Toribash
- Iji
- and I forget the rest...

Sites I would recommend (just for starters):
- The Indie Games Database
- The Indie Games Source
- Indie Games Blog
- Jay is Games
- Allegro.CC community
- Game Maker Games
- The Daily Click (Klik n' Play/Kreate community)
- Nitrome (makers of Fault Line)
- Newgrounds, obviously
- Blurst (makers of Offroad Raptor Safari and Crane Wars)
- Pixel Prospector
- Liarsoft (specializes in SHMUPS)

Projects/devs worth watching:
- Teshima/Silver Knights
- Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
- Buster
- Indie Brawl
- Locomalito
- PEPOSOFT
- Suge9/Vanguard Princess
- FRAXY (sadly, the main site died)
- Hikoza/Warning Forever
- Uturobune/Vacant Ark & Iwanaga
- KROBON STATION/Mogura series
- Card Sagas Wars
- Sonic Fan Remix
- Teknopants/Action Fist

Top 5 Recommended:
- Cave Story (if you haven't played it, you haven't lived)
- Cho Ren Sha 68k (my favorite SHMUP ever)
- Vanguard Princess (One of the most polished and impressive fighters I've ever played, anywhere)
- Noitu Love 2 (very well done beat 'em up by Konjak)
- V-Knights (impressive jetpack sidescroller, sadly still incomplete but worth playing 'til the "end")

Why isn't Mount and Blade on there? It's a great game, and was basically indie until Valve snapped it up.

If you're not playing super meat boy then you're no friend of mine tbh.

What if my friends play Super Meat Boy? Are they friends of yours?

BTW, Delphinus. I considered putting M&B here but I didn't think it'd resonate with you guys. Apparently I was wrong.

Also, SPELUNKY!

Mondo Medical scared the shit out of me, then it frustrated me. Then I liked it.

Spelunky is pretty much the best platformer ever.

The best indie game would be if the developers combined Minecraft and Dwarf Fortress. And I love Clean Asia by Cactus Squid.
