It has begun. Starting today, I’ll participate in what Krikket named #JustOnePercent and while not much has changed, I’ll most likely refer to this page a bunch of times and keep track of all the posts that qualify for this page right below this section. For anyone that doesn’t know what caused this, check out my post right here or Krikket’s post over here for more information, but essentially, I’ll try to play 100+ Indie Games this year while also writing about them! The point is really just to disprove Jeff Vogel’s point of there being too many games. Jeff Vogel, who is an Indie Dev himself, kind of went on a mad rant on Twitter about how there are too many Indie Devs out there. Since he’s clearly celebrating himself right now while also losing all the respect a lot of Indie Developers had for him, Krikket decided to take this shitty take and turn it into something good. Meanwhile, I put my own spin to it and added my own runes given that I have my own limitations.
The rules are as follows:
- Definitions of “Indie” Games vary, so I’ll go with my gut feeling.
- First Impressions/Reviews both count.
- Demos, Freebies, Early Access, Backlog, Game Pass, etc. are all OK as long as they’re not “too old”.
- Re-Releases count.
- Rules may change as time goes on.
Given that life is unpredictable and given that I may eventually not have enough time, I’ll just try to play as many as I can. According to Jeff, even playing 10 Indie Games a month will cause people great despair but that’s not much of a challenge since I only play Indie Games anyway.
If you want me to play a game, feel free to message me on Discord (MagiWasTaken#4357) or via email@example.com. If you want me to play a specific Indie Game that I don’t own and that costs too much for me, you may purchase it for me if you really want me to, although you’d have to add me on Steam for that. While that’d be cool, you don’t have to do it obviously. It’s just an idea that I borrowed from Krikket’s post! As for review keys and the like, I don’t have any handhelds or consoles of any kind available, so I won’t be able to play Switch Games, Xbox Games, PS- Games, etc. The covered games can be found in the table below! More rows will be added as needed.
Stay tuned for more reviews!
