You can’t have a gaming forum (especially an LP forum) without indies! Those lovable little guys that give us hours of enjoyment from their gameplay and hours of ContentID worrying from their royalty free music. Whether it’s roguelite spelunking, or farming, or morph-balling, pointing and clicking, or even (!!!) WALKING, indie games provide a range of experiences that most high-budget titles don’t provide anymore.
