About Indie Overlook
Hello and welcome to Indie Overlook! As you might have guessed from the name, this site is dedicated to talking about all sorts of video games made by independent developers. The focus here is mostly on obscure stuff, the games which, for one reason or another, slipped through the cracks or were once well-known within their communities and have since become all but forgotten.
New games, old games, commercial games, and freeware indie games are all equally likely to be covered. Indie Overlook’s goal is to help players discover indie games which are worth their time and money and, in turn, to help unknown indie developers get a little closer to receiving the amount of recognition their work deserves. In other words, you won’t be seeing any review scores on this site because, unless an article states otherwise, any games covered here are considered good enough to warrant checking out.
If you’re interested in playing, or even just reading about and watching videos of, great indie games you’ve probably never heard of, you can get started by looking at:
- the full list of games covered by Indie Overlook
- neat player-created content in indie games
- shorter articles for demos, very small games, and other bonus content
I have been writing about, discussing, and making videos of games on various websites for well over a decade as Seeric, I even post articles under this name over here at Indie Overlook, but my real name is Joseph McCue.
Being a strong supporter of video game preservation, I created and maintain Indie Overlook in order to help draw attention to games which have been forgotten or which flew under the radar and went largely unnoticed. I know how exciting it is to have your expectations completely blown away by a game you didn’t notice or by one which you were initially on the fence about playing and I hope I can help share that sense of excitement and discovery through my articles and videos on Indie Overlook.
