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?
