FTL is an odd game. Odd as I don’t usually enjoy such frustrating game but this one I can’t quit. Maybe it’s the theme. Maybe it’s the simplicity mixed with constant rewards. I’m now 60 hours in and I still have 2 ships (+ variants) to unlock so I’ll probably put another 10-15 hours before [...]
This is my answer to Beau Hindman article named What F2P and indie games can learn from SWTOR. To be fair to Beau maybe I shouldn’t call myself an indie MMO developer. Maybe I should say I’m some kind of Rambo MMO developer. He’s doing a great job to talk about indie and lesser know [...]

My Cyborg EVO was gathering dust for way too long so when I heard about Dogfighter I just couldn’t resist. Ever since I finally stopped played X-wing VS Tie Fighter many years ago I’ve been looking for something to replace it. The space expansion in SWG was kinda nice (the reason I bought the Cyborg [...]
Well again tonight I had a little rage of playing some game and found nothing interesting on my hard drive so I opened Steam to see how I could spend some money.
That’s when I found Guns of Icarus. Watched the trailer, read the description, saw the price ($10) … Paypal checkout it’s done. It’s only [...]
Call it envy, call it admiration, call it inspiration it’s a bit of all of this. Here’s a game that I have never seen labeled as indie even though you cannot get more indie than this. Since 2003 Zack Johnson has built a small successful empire that should part of models for all indie developers. [...]
