Cool Links

So I am nearly 50% done with the book. Hmm, OK, actually closer to 40% done but the beat goes on. In doing the research for some of the essays I stumbled across some really cool stuff that I wanted to share with you. It’s not sports related, but hey — my blog. Pbbth.

I’m doing an essay on Indie Games, games made by small dev teams without the backing of big name publishers. There is a TON of neat stuff out there being made by highly cteative and dedicated people. Here’s a few links to check out:

Mount and Blade – Holy cow is this game fun! Seriously, check this game out if you like action-based RPGs.

Lux – Insprired by Risk, only with more stuff and really colorful maps.

Big Box of Blox – If you like puzzle games like Tetris or Meteos, check this out.

Indie Game Source: A great news page for the Indie Gamer.

Indie Forum – An even better resource for people looking to get into the indie gaming scene.

This does not even scratch the surface of what is out there. Cool, eh?

    I wonder if it will have live or not. At 14.99 even if it doesn’t have live, it’s still a definite pickup no matter what reviews say. I’ve waited for ages for something to match Gallop Racer on the PS2 and this looks like it definitely could.

    No live Bill, just checked. The offical site has been updated with new screens and a FAQ, but lists 24.99 as the price. Still a hell of a bargain for a good horse racing game.
