Indie Nation is about independent games. You could have probably guessed that.To the best of my recollection, I've never played a game quite like Drug Wars. After a remarkably turbulent, accidental release on Steam a couple of months ago, t...   read

Indie Nation: MoneySeize

At irregular intervals, "Indie Nation" highlights interesting games from the independent scene. I'm tempted to call Matt Thorson the king of indie platfomers, which may sound weird considering I've never highlighted any of his gam...   read

Indie Nation: Polaris

Half-Life 2's Source engine may well be one of the most reliably satisfying pieces of technology in the modern gaming world. It gave us gravity guns, zombie hordes, portal physics -- and now, of all things, a stargazing simulator.Polaris, t...   read

Indie Nation #59: Windosill

If you've ever played a flash-based, pointer controlled adventure game with no inventory puzzles like, say, Samorost (or Myst, if you don't know what Samorost is), Windosill belongs to that as-yet-unnamed game genre. Whatever that genre is ...   read

Indie Nation #53: The Linear RPG

Playing Lost Odyssey to completion taught me one very important thing about myself: I hate RPGs. Not the fun sort of hate that evokes a misanthropic glee -- the kind of hate one usually reserves for Fox News and Uwe Boll -- but a depressing...   read

Indie Nation #52: Jumpman

It takes some serious balls to call your game Jumpman. Such a title mentally conjures a significant amount of videogame history, beginning with Donkey Kong and ending with this pretentiously-titled little indie title. It compares itself to ...   read
