A peek at where indie games are made

It is usually said that every great rock band starts in a garage. For video-game companies I always thought the equivalent was a basement or a dark-lit bedroom. According to Ars Technica it is a lot more varied than that in the case of indies. None of the indie companies there are in a basement or dark-lit bedroom (the ones that fit that category are well lighted!) but still very interesting. It is also interesting to see the things all of them have in common despite of the different team sizes or location. 🙂

For those interested on it, you can give it a look here:

Where the world’s best indie games get made

P.S.: I am reorganizing the categories here. I decided this might be a good time to do it before there are so many posts that it gets hard to organize. Right now I made a few new categories and moved the relevant ones to become subcategories. I also changed the categories of some of the rambling posts to fit better with the new structure. Right now the idea is for the “Everything Else” category to be short posts, usually with links, that don’t fit anywhere else. Also for my attempts at humor. Ramblings will continue to be for all those really long ramblings that don’t fit any of the other categories. Dunno how long that will work though. I might end up getting confused in the future and post a parody of the Odyssey on Ramblings or post a critical analysis of why the sky is blue at Everything Else. But we’ll see.

Not too sure about the categories look in the side-bar right now either. I will be tweaking that in the next few days though until I get something I like. Or that I can at least live with. Whichever comes first.

EDIT: Ops! Forgot to give a title to this post. Fixed now!

Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon is out!

As the title says, Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon has been released.

I must admit this feels kind of surreal after keeping a close eye on news about the game for so long. Not that I ever doubted it would be released eventually, quite the contrary. It is just that after some time a game like this gets a near-mythical quality to it. Kinda like when you are a child and you know one day you will reach adulthood but it still feels very far away. Then suddenly one day you are an adult and needs to go job hunting to pay the bills. The difference is that Frayed Knights release is undisputedly a good thing. While being an (technically speaking, at least) adult is still something I am still debating about.

You can download the demo and/or buy the game here.

My suggestion, give the demo a try at least.

Oh, expect the usual posts about my gaming experiences and thoughts about it at some point. I didn’t create a category for this game for nothing! 🙂
