Hey everyone! Our buddy Armand K, Bits ‘n’ Bytes Gaming
editor lowly writer and lucky dog, somehow found the time to attend IndieCade – the international festival of independent games, now in its fourth year – down in Culver City. He must have had a lot of caffeine in him, because somehow the dude managed to reach every far-flung corner of the event. Don’t miss his exhaustive, three-part coverage of everything indie over at BnB.
That was a lot of links. Let’s organize in a convenient column format.

First game I see in Armand’s impressions is sword & sworcery EP! Awesome. I’ve been playing that on my iPhone for a few months now.
Bar none it is the best ‘unique’ gaming experience you can possibly find on iOS. Angry Birds has the time killing factor, PvZ has the awesome strategy depth, Osmos has the zen chillaxin down to a science, but hot damn, s&s EP has that hard-to-describe something about it. sword&sworcery…just staring into that weird world…has probably been the most mind expanding dose of gaming I’ve had in the past two years, save Immortal Defense.
I’m not an editor anymore. Just a lowly writer. 🙂
Sweet! I’m glad you posted this up, uh, ‘Tap-Repeatedly’ whoever you are, because it’s a great roundup. I’m envious I couldn’t join the K Meister.
Who cares about being an editor, Armand? According to that gray space at the bottom of this site it seems Gregg is an editor. And he’s a pretty big loser, so I wouldn’t sweat it.
The key, xtal, is that I don’t think Gregg had seen that yet. Now he’ll be drunk with power. THANKS A LOT
Thanks Armand for the extensive writeup. I’ve bookmarked several of the games’ websites to keep an eye on development and when the finished product will release. I’d like to play sword & sorcery EP but don’t have an iPhone of iPad.
You should go next year Lakerz. The games section of the event is free and open to the public. Not to mention loads of fun!
