Our TakeJudging from our reviews,
this year's PAX 10 includes a ton of hits; I've already listened to Adam and
Tim fawn over Rogue Legacy, and Dan won't shut up about Towerfall. I'm even
more eager to check out games like Avalanche 2 and Escape Goat 2, which I've
heard virtually nothing about. Hopefully the next generation of consoles will
make it even easier for indie developers to find a larger audience.

Badland is a great game.
I'm glad these games like Rogue Legacy have a chance to really reach a mass audience through these special indie events.
whats the best 1 outta them all?
Ridiculous fishing is, by far, my favorite iOS game. More fish! More levels! More guns!
That's a pretty great list of Indie games. Rogue Legacy has consumed so many hours of my life already.
That really is a great lineup
Yawn... I am still waiting for the devs to do something better than use the retro pixels and nostalgia as excuses for good games. Shadworun seems quite interesting but they have bugs to iron out. There are just too many side scrolling platformers now.
Most of these are all really great,cant wait for coverage of em
