Responding to the expansion of the independent gaming field, Rose (ed., has compiled a record of its best programs. He opens with a discussion of the accepted, if difficult to explicitly define, character of "indie" games and explains their influence. The subsequent game profiles are organized into three categories: downloadable, browser-based, and commercial. A page devoted to each game lists developer name, concept inspiration, overall objective, level numbers, and accompanying audio. Each profile also includes a web link and a full-color screen shot, providing readers with an idea of game graphics.
VERDICT A fun briefing for gaming enthusiasts.
