The Ultimate Guide To Indie Games - Essential Reading For PC Gamers


The Ultimate Guide To Indie Games

For those of you with an interest in indie gaming on the PC - most of you, I would assume - there is an excellent bookazine available that covers the games we hold so dear. I am a little late to the party on this one, but after having been bought a copy yesterday by my lovely partner, I felt I needed to bring it to your attention in case it had slipped you by as well. Coming out in January of 2013 from long-running PC gaming magazine PC Gamer, The Ultimate Guide To Indie Games features reviews and previews of a shed load of indie gems, as well as useful Top 50 / Top 100 articles showcasing the best indie games and mods available online completely free. It brought to my attention a multitude of interesting titles that I was not familiar with beforehand, some of which I intend to cover on this website soon.



The bookazine is 146 pages long, and costs £9.99. It may seem a little steep - especially since the vast majority of the content is simply gathered together from previous issues of PC Gamer - but it's a wonderful collectors piece and a must-have for indie gaming fans. And besides, it's always lovely to have a magazine to hand that features multiple articles on Spelunky, the greatest game of all time (in my humble opinion). Grab your copy now from WH Smiths, or via the Future Publishing website, here.

It is also available to purchase for your tablet and mobile devices, for those of you with an aversion to paper.
