5.0 out of 5 stars Best Game Related Coffee Table Book, 19 May 2011
If you're a love of the indie gaming scene this is a must buy for three reasons. First, while I try to keep up on all the great indie games out there this book introduced me to many great games that I had never heard of. Second, this book is a great way to get your friends and family introduced to indie games. The colorful images and easy format beacon people to pick it up and leaf through it. Then before long they are asking about a game, and would like to play it. Third, indie gaming is such a web based phenomenon its rare and wonderful when you can hold a piece of it in your hands. This book lets you hold 250 colorful little pieces at once!

5.0 out of 5 stars A top reference, 13 May 2011
There's some amazing indie games out there many of them free but it's hard to know how to distinguish the signal from noise. This is a really good reference to help you do that. It doesn't just cover the same indie darlings you'll see in many online "best of" lists. It covers a whole range of games from some really talented developers.

If you like playing games and you want to find some great stuff you've probably not stumbled across yourself this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful time saver!, 17 May 2011
I've always wanted to try indie games, but there are so many out there that I couldn't figure out where to start. This book is very handy because it introduces a plethora of new games and the reviews make it easy to figure out what I would enjoy playing. Plus, there are lots of useful pictures!

A visual chronicle of the current golden age in independent videogame development, this makes a wonderful 'pick up and read' book for the coffee table or the bedside table. This is 'The Shock Of The New' for the videogame industry.

5.0 out of 5 stars a super book!, 19 May 2011
After my initial disappointment had faded (i bought the book thinking it would have a picture of Arcade Fire playing hopscotch, my current masturbatory fantasy), i discovered a great book which serves as a fantastic reference to some of the best indie games you can play.

Thoroughly recommended!
