Last night, in a crowded pub called “Dirty Dicks”, a dozen or so indie devs gathered for a festive pint, a grumble, and some impromptu awards. It was a smaller, quieter affair than last year, because I haven’t got much time on my hands at the moment. Hopefully we’ll return for a full-on shindig next year.
However, there has been some excellence in indie games this year, and they deserve a mention. These awards are important, because winners are chosen by Indie Dev Industry Peers.
