November 21st - via:
Whew it’s been a crazy few weeks between GDC Next and the PS4/Xbox One launch. We finally have a free second to give some love to the indies.

We’re really happy to be receiving a daily flood of emails from project creators! Keep them coming! I’m only one man, and I honestly can’t find every awesome project out there myself. That being said, I hand-picked a couple of these gems while I was at GDC. There’s no better way to get my attention than a hands-on demo of your crowdfunding project. That being said, here’s our lot for this week! (Read More)

November 14th - via:

It was entitled Tadpole Treble, and starred a heroic baby frog that had to swim from one end of a river to other – all while avoiding obstacles and destroying enemies – via a hand-drawn presentation.
