The indie surge has been significant over the last decade. With Xbox Live Arcade leading the charge for small developers, we’ve seen a slew of classic titles over the years that may of otherwise never came to be.

And with every good title we also saw something best left alone. Prolific titles have been a clear influence for A Walk in the Dark. Super Meat Boy and Limbo being two primary examples. ...

Some racers are not like the others. Lightfield from the four man indie studio Lost in the Garden definitely fits into this category. The developers claim that this is a hyper futuristic racer and from the launch trailer it is very hard to disagree. Lightfield is a racer that doesn't need roads, or walls, or guides of any kind. You are free to find your own way along the course. This is achieved by your ship having the ability to stick to any surface just by the touch of a button. This looks to make for a very unique and ... Read More »

At it's core, Toby: The Secret Mine is a platformer and puzzle game at its core.  Right from the first time you start the game, you ... Read More »
