Sword fights and fairies and dungeons, and this isn't a Zelda title? Surely it's just as good... right?

XBL Indie Games Considered Games Again

Creators of Indie Games for Xbox Live were once relegated to Specialty Shops on the dashboard. Where are they now?

I'm actually very fond of Xbox Live Indie Games. There's a lot done out of love in that area of the dashboard. It's almost heartwarming to know that deep down underneath all of the advertisements and crap on top, there's a warm gooey center of indie gaming to be had for pennies on the dollar.

When Indie Game developers were upset about being sequestered off in the Specialty Shops next to the Avatar Marketplace, I had nothing but empathy for them. It sure showed how the devs looked in Mircosoft's eyes.

Luckily for Indie Game creators and players, the pint-sized titles have found themselves back in the games part of the marketplace.

To celebrate, here are some games you should go spend some of your spare Microsoft points on:

West

Groov

Platformance: Castle Pain

Seriously, check these out. Most Indie Games are only a buck anyways!
