I looked deeper into the article. There's some positively exciting indie stuff in there! 'Apotheon'. 'Contrast'. 'Lovers In A Dangerous Space Time'. 'Clark'. A remake of 'Oddworld'. A new RPG-version of 'Shadowrun'. 'Gunpoint'. 'Distance'. 2013 is gonna be the year of the indie PC game. Very cool!
If you're interested in Distance, you should definitely check out Nitronic Rush
. It is a great game, especially considering it is a student project. And you can download it for free! I could easily see it being sold on Steam as an indie game, so I'm super excited to see what they can do in Distance.
