    On the topic of Indie games, here’s a good site with a set of Indie games that were submitted for the 2009 Independent Games Festival(most of which you can try out). Some are even getting proper launches (eg. Dyson).

    damn i am looking forward to machinarium!
    Amanita did the samorost games which were an absolute delight to play through so this will hopefully be just as good.

    Tag is pretty kickass, clever first person puzzle/platformer from some Digipen folk.

    And I liked the flash version of Closure, can’t wait to see what the full game is like.
