Some of those are gorgeous. I play almost nothing but strategy and Sim City-type games, but Polarity makes me want to try something else.

I love how efficient this is. We only need a few seconds to see what kind of game something is, so I could quickly find the ones I want to look up and the ones I know I wouldn't like (fighting and shooting games just don't do it for me).

I've been looking for some games to put on my net book, and at least a few of these will probably make the cut. Thanks for the link!

I am astounded by how many of these I recognize. I am now going outside.

Ok, I realize this is going to sound like a really petty complaint, but... why did they only show the game names on mouseover?

I noted the games I was interested in- there were 57 that looked good- but moving the mouse from the bottom of the video to the pause button so I had time to note the name in an editor window was really frustrating. And, of course, I occasionally accidentally clicked the game names instead of pause, which sent me to another video...

I apologize if this violates protocol, but, I'd like to share my last vid of the retro/vector/asteroidy game I'm working on:

Graviton (there is apparently also an iphone game w/that name, but I had my name first, so they can suck it :P)

I've done a bit more since this vid, but am currently re-implementing the bullet code to make a faster paced game.

I've tweaked the main code (C++) into classes (the old code as found on google code is REALLY bad -- haven't uploaded the newest code yet)...

Thanks for these links - i'll have to go check them out -- i LOVE indie games for their unique ideas and novel gameplay (even if they aren't all fantastic - the more the merrier, I say!)

I'm impressed people made all these in their own time. Damn, that's a lot of effort. Still I only liked a dozen or so - tiled RPG-looking ones, hand-drawn platformers and the 3D spaceship mayhem where they went totally over the top with the cheap openGL-type lights. There seemed only few which looked like they had a good story.

Well, that was awesome. I couldn't help but smile the whole way through. So much game-making talent!

I don't understand this. Park your mouse there. Leave it alone. Catch all the titles.

I love how efficient this is.

This. Google:internet::this:indie games. I never have enough time and patience to check out more than a few, and seldom happen on ones I like that way. Thanks very much for this.

Odd that the requisite OS is not listed for any of them. One assumes this means they are mostly Windows games.

Toribash is Windows/Mac. Also, Jpfed, leave mouse over title area, hit space bar to pause/play.

Good. One of the clips also triggered a memory of a game I'd been trying to remember for a while now: Kula World.

Just to report: Suave is well-made, and Debrysis is cool (though it makes me long for a 360 controller). Paper zombies is also alright, and spent some semi-worthwhile time on Theseus -- though shooting sheep corpses can get a little old.
