Cool, look forward to seeing what stuff they show off as part of this initiative.

I'm not a big Indies gamer though but this is good.



Don't play many Indies, but that is something good to promote them.

All 9 games have been announced. Seems like a good mix of something for everyone. See original post for links to the announcement videos.



I love that "F.I.S.T." game, it looks incredibly fun and that dieselpunk aesthetics is awesome. I'm excited for this game. Hope I can preorder it.

"Creaks" looks really good. Love that hand painted look. Might get this one right away also, I'm just hoping that playing isn't too hard. Others can like harder game play, just I've got limits to what I enjoy playing.

"Maquette" looks good. The game gives me the feeling like I would like it as much as I liked playing "The Unfinished Swan".
