|Our good friend Konstantinos of Gnome's Lair has posted an interview with Mike Rose, author of the upcoming book 250 Indie Games You Must Play. The book and the author sound great! I think this will definitely be a must-have for all of us interested in truly innovative game development. Perhaps it's a bit controversial, but I really like the fact that he focused on PC/Mac indie games, and every game in the book will play on a modern PC. That's of course good news for anyone who's worried that a particular title will is unavailable on their available platforms (I'm actually quite curious about what notable indie titles are NOT available on PC or Mac). The book is also sprinkled with quotations from designers and developers and boasts color screenshots. Please buy the book using the link to the left to support Armchair Arcade.|
Impressive that they got a videogame book picked up on such a niche area, and with a real publisher to boot. Kudos to them! I guess IndieGames.com having UBM TechWeb as a parent really paid off. I hope this does very well for them, because we really need to keep showing that such books are viable in the marketplace. I love the title too--no messing around with what the thing is actually about, which will certainly help!
Oh look a book about those games and game developers Reggie wants nothing to do with! Just kidding ... hehe :-)
The book looks awesome!
Not sure if you guys already know about this, but there's also a *very* cool movie/documentary about indie developers coming out soon!
