Rise And Rise

By Jim Rossignol on January 25th, 2008.

Wired’s Clive Thompson has written an entertaining piece about the rise and rise of the Indie gaming scene, and what it means for “top game” lists:

Two years ago, I wrote my first column celebrating the best indie games: small, offbeat titles, programmed usually by a single auteur and given away for free. I figured I’d make it an annual affair. For 12 months, I’d scour the net for independent games that had a spark — some innovative bit of design or gameplay — and gather a list of the top 10. But I’ve decided it’s impossible.

He’s wrong of course, because Death Worm is best. Man, I love lists.
