Indie Nation #37: Cottage of Doom

With Left 4 Dead less than a month away, and my "Top Ten Most Badass Zombie Games" list still a glimmer in my eye, I thought it'd be worth mentioning one of the coolest zombie-related indie games in recent memory. Cottage of Doom, winner of...   read

Indie Nation #36: Karoshi 2

Karoshi 2.0 is the following things: -Insane -Clever -Hilarious -Rule-breaking -Free, and downloadable here. Since much of Karoshi 2.0's charm comes from its ability to consistently surprise and befuddle the player, I won't say anything mor...   read

Indie Nation #35: World of Goo

It's not technically out until Monday, but World of Goo is so awesome that I just plain didn't want to wait to talk about it. I was initially exposed to it during GDC, and though I found it marginally interesting, it wasn't anywhere near th...   read

Indie Nation #34: I'm O.K.

What with Jacky Thompson being disbarred and all, why not revisit the greatest JT-related indie game ever made? I'm O.K., for those of you who don't remember, was created following Thompson's "modest video game proposal," in which he called...   read

Indie Nation #33: Mega Man 7, the 8-bit version

It's been a very Mega Man-filled week, and don't expect it to stop anytime soon. I've hopefully got a Rockman-related video coming next week, and, before writing his review of Mega Man 9, our own Jonathan Holmes alerted me to what eventuall...   read

Indie Nation #32: Iji

There hasn't been a balls-out action title highlighted on Indie Nation as of recent, and more than a few people have suggested spotlighting Daniel Remar's Iji. Though it doesn't do anything particularly new, what it does it does pretty well...   read

Indie Nation #31: Mount & Blade

I've held back on highlighting this week's game for quite a while, now. I've been playing Mount and Blade for a couple of years, since it was in the very early stage of development. As the husband-wife creative team have added and subtracte...   read

Indie Nation #30: Masq

I am assuming that everyone on this site has read at least one Choose Your Own Adventure book in their time. As a child, they were the only books in the entire elementary school library I felt no apprehension toward; with their branching st...   read

Indie Nation #29: Knytt Stories

The original Knytt is, as much as any two-year-old game with an intentionally low-res graphical style can be, an indie classic. It combined the isolated feeling of Shadow of the Colossus with the large-scale exploration of Metroid, all with...   read

Indie Nation #28: Photopia

Where Indie Nation is concerned, I usually make a quick plug for the game before the jump, then halfheartedly tell you to download the game first and maybe hit the jump later to hear my disjointed, irrelevant thoughts on it. I'm not going t...   read

Indie Nation #27: Cowboyana

I highlight this week's Indie Nation game with a slight hint of sadness: as much as I enjoy this game, I am more or less incapable of playing it any more, now that I am back home. You see, Cowboyana is a mandatory two-player game: on the sa...   read

Indie Nation #26: Urban Dead

I was going to retract my statement from last week and proclaim that this, is, in fact, my second favorite indie zombie game ever, but that's kinda dumb: rating your favorite indie zombie games is like trying to pick favorites amongst your ...   read

Indie Nation #25: The Last Stand 2

I love zombies. More than you do. I keep a copy of The Zombie Survival Guide by my bed just in case I ever need to get at it in a hurry, I've watched Dawn of the Dead more times than I can count, and my ultimate dream is to make a zombie mo...   read

Indie Nation #24: Warning Forever

This week, TIGSource.com announced the winners of their Procedural Generation competition, wherein contestants had to create games based around some degree of procedural generation. You should definitely check them out, as the winners are p...   read

Indie Nation #23: Steam Brigade

Given last week's highlighted Indie Nation title (Gun Mute, an awesome text adventure shooter), I thought it'd be fun to highlight yet another game that melds two gameplay genres you might not expect to work together. Steam Brigade, while m...   read

Indie Nation #22: Gun Mute

Gun Mute is a text adventure shooter. Gun Mute is a text adventure shooter. GUN MUTE IS A TEXT ADVENTURE SHOOTER. There is no reason a text adventure shooting game should exist, in today's world. There's even less reason that the game, by P...   read

Indie Nation #21: Gish

I honestly dunno what prompted my desire to replay and write about Gish. The game is several years old, hasn't experienced a significant price drop, and no recent news has been released about the sequel. I just had one of those cravings -- ...   read

Indie Nation #20: Love

After the psychological mindf*ck metagame that was Execution, this week's Indie Nation goes back to basics. There are no anti-war messages, questions of murder and consequence, or really any theme at all in Love. Dtoider Blake turned me ont...   read

Indie Nation #19: Execution

Sharpless turned me on to this week's game, Execution. He gave me only two instructions, which I will pass onto you and demand you follow to the letter:  1. Do not read any of the comments or replies on the game's official download pag...   read

Indie Nation #18: Everyday Shooter

If you're one of those "people" who either owns a PS3 or is friends with someone who owns one, then this week's Indie Nation may be totally useless to you. If, like me and so many others, your first chance to actually play Everyday Shooter ...   read

Indie Nation #17: Dino Run

Tiff announced the release of Pixeljam's latest game earlier this week, and I'm here to echo her sentiments:  1. It is a good game. 2. Play it.  However, if you need more convincing, or an in-depth critique of the game itself, tha...   read

Indie Nation #16: Noitu Love 2: Devolution

God, this game is sexy.  I mean, I usually spooge about pretty much every game I highlight on Indie Nation to the point where it becomes almost expected, but I swear that my enthusiasm for Noitu Love 2 is completely justified. Apart fr...   read

Indie Nation #15: Clean Asia!

If you only download one free shmup this year, make it Clean Asia!. Granted, it's a pretty good thing that you don't have to download just one shmup (were this the case, future Indie Nation articles might be horrendously disappointing), but...   read

Indie Nation #14: GUNLIMB

GUNLIMB has  controls that, while cute in theory, fall apart about 50% of the time when actually implemented. Its level design is "eh," its backgrounds and enemy designs are ugly, and it doesn't push its main gameplay concept hard enou...   read

Indie Nation #13: Gamma Bros

I'm going to take a wild guess: a significant number of you may have seen Gamma Bros, and maybe even played it for a few minutes, but never finished it. I do not necessarily blame you: Gamma Bros is quiet, difficult, and pretty lengthy for ...   read
