If you've never heard of half these games, then you're in the same boat as us... but that's also why we're posting them here on the site. One of the things we want to do in the next coming months is to showcase games that might be swept under the carpet, thanks to all the big budget titles coming out. They're games: And while we like big budget titles, sometimes an experience or two that's unique and separate from all the other triple A experiences can provide insight with what the future of gaming holds. Let's not forget: Portal started off thanks to a small game called Narbucular Drop, after all. For more detailed descriptions and videos of these games, follow this link.

IndieCade is only a few weeks away and you can rest assured that your dear friends here at the Gamer Horizon website will be present to cover it! In case you didn't know, IndieCade is a celebration of indie gaming that happens every year in Los Angeles. It's open to the public, so if you ever want to check out what the fuss is about, we'd highly recommend you check it out. This year, it's going to be held on October 3 to 5, and I'm thinking I'll need to take some time off to really enjoy myself some awesome games!

If you see any of us there, be sure to say, "Hello!"
