We want to give REAL indie developers a chance to show their work. It seems the definition of indie game developer has... changed over the last few years. Today, we see guys with big offices, several published games (some even by Sony or Nintendo) and ten, twenty employees call themselves indies and we slowly shake our heads. See, we feel that while these guys are small devs, they are not exactly *indies* anymore.
Bottom line is, most of us work so much through the year we usually miss these beautiful, incredible well made games, they fly under our radar for several reasons! Well, not anymore.
Some you may know, some may be absolutely new to you; that's what's fun of this bundle! Discover new games you missed for free!





Games included:


Nitronic Rush, Ascension, Celestial Mechanica, Imscared, and Abobo's Big Adventure

I will have to check these games out.
I feel like indie has become a genre in games where big companies will just make a simple game and call it indie to look cool. Its kind of like how food companies where throwing around the word "artisan" just to look cool.

Same here, But I think the humble bundle has a good base and fame now to back this up in spite of differences

Nitronic Rush is an incredible game. Not only is it a terrific racing game, but overall presentation wise, audio wise, everything is just great. The Digipen guys who made it are now working on a sequel of sorts to it, so good on them. I highly recommend Nitronic Rush.

That's really the only game in this bundle that grabbed my attention.

If you liked Rush 2049 you'll love Nitronic Rush.
They even re-created the gauntlet from Rush 2049.

Not to mention Nitronic Rush has user created content, which is a HUGE plus for the game. Besides how great it looks, runs, plays and all that. You can download tons of levels, and (I think) make your own as well.

++++!
