Being a "Creators Club" member, I've already had the chance to playtest this one on my Xbox! :) Dean's work is amazing. Truly professional work. And as much as everyone goes on about his artwork, it blows me away that someone who hasn't programmed for 20 years or so (since the TI-99/4A which was my first home computer) can come out and even program a game like that. He did everything but the music. For him to win it all, so amazing.

BTW, Duality ZF came 7th... so close to making PAX! Here's the top 20 (before the voting at PAX picked the true winners):

hopefully ratings will help spur sales in the right direction so ppl can get the good indie games for ludicrously cheap prices :D

as the title says: support indie games by buying this game...

either that or just buy any game from any indy you feel deserves it.


been so busy I havent had time for much, but oddly that has helped me be more on one end of indie gaming more now: the iphone/itouch indie games.

out of all the commercial platforms, currently the strongest one has to be on the iphone/itouch even if not profitable. XBLA use to be the strongest, but has sagged in the wrong direction lately even with indie games now, most not as good.

though this release on XBL Indie Games is the best so far:
