Indie Developer Profiles at 1Up
I stumbled on a very nice article over at 1up.com that went up last week. It comes hot on the heels of the Independent Games Festival that occurs every year at GDC. Titled The Indie Kids are Alright, the meat of the article is a series of video interviews with some of the top developers from this year's show.

After seeing a lot of the games that were on hand this year, it really inspired me to try and put something together for next year. I have some ideas bouncing around and am already getting started. I'll post any progress I make over at MikeGamin.com, but any sort of public showing is probably a ways off.

Anyway, please check the article out. If any of the games catch your interest, follow and support them! The indie scene could really push the industry forward. My particular favorites are Audiosurf and Fez (pictured in this post). Audiosurf brings music into the gameplay, which is an idea I really want to run with, and Fez is just endlessly charming.

Starfish OMG I sort-of know one of the lead guys working on that game from the screen cap named Phil Fish... and by know him i mean i've stalked him for years on DeviantArt. That's cool he's kinda making it.
