Subversion = Leverage series game-ized?

Atom Zombie Smasher?

Has someone else been playing on the Computer Game Name Generator?

I looked at Spy Party (which looks fantastic), but there just isn't enough known about it and I've not been hands on either.

Looks like a handful of cracking games due out! I hadn't heard of most of them so thankyou for the article ;)

You guys keep overlooking Heroes of Stalingrad by tripwire interactive (of Killing Floor ilk). Independent Studio and publisher and HOS was tipped by PC Gamer US to be a smash hit (and by me!). As someone who has been playing the first Red Orchestra for 6 years its got to be worth mentioning!

"Platform: PC Exclusive"
Minecraft isn't PC exclusive. It's available on PC, Mac, Linux.

I have my pre-order of Frozen Synapse and very much looking forward to it.
The built-in YouTube upload feature is pretty nifty for those really intense games. It's simple in theory, but a fantastically executed game.

Pre-ordered FS for myself and a friend, looks like a brilliant little game!

The only one i'd heard of out of all of them was minecraft, and now looking at them all, funnily enough minecraft is now my least favourite out of all of them.
Frozen synapse looks great, gonna get me a copy :)

Out of those, Atom Zombie Smash looks like my cup of tea. Better be on Steam though.

To be a real pedant, it's available on Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD, etc etc. Anything that can use Java, technically.

Indie = Independent, as in 'without a publisher' or 'of such a small size and focus as to be considered such'

I think PC Gamer are the only ones taking it seriously. Jim from RPS gave it an honourable mention in their 2011 look forward. I guess the game will speak for itself when it's released in the summer.

Rock of Ages looks hilarious... and awesome... and hilarious.

I can not believe that Natural Selection 2 did not make it in to this list, and I find it even more surprising that no one has mentioned it in the comments!

Absolutely shocking! Does everyone at bt just not like it then or what?!
