Games When I decided to take on this article I thought it would be easy. Grab a few quotes from some developers, re-hash WINE support, check out the latest version of Battle for Wesnoth... Simple stuff.

Yes I liked it too, good article. I did found it odd that there was no mention of Minecraft which afaik is the biggest indie-game hit in existance and also is cross-platform due to it being done in Java.

As for pc gaming in general, indie games are obviously making good inroads while big AAA titles seem to be moving towards dedicated gaming consoles. Personally I find pc gaming more interesting than in a long while with the whole '2 guys in a garage making a game' mentality coming back thus allowing much more experimentation with gameplay than the expensive Hollywood style productions were they generally bet on safe standard gameplay and focuses on improving the graphics.

Looking at the indie sector there seems to be alot of games being developed for pc first and if they do well they are ported to IPhone/Android/IPad which is an interesting strategy.
