All the Nines: Uprising to the Challenge

It’s coming. In the wake of last year’s reasonably successful summer and winter Indie Uprising events comes the biggest yet: the Indie Games Uprising III, also known amusingly paradoxically as the Fall Uprising. Nine games in the ninth month, all brand new releases from ambitious indie developers, and some that have already made me gape with barely suppressed gaming lust.

The finished products haven’t landed yet, but the Indie Ocean’s pick of the bunch at this pre-release stage is City, Tuesday in which you play someone stuck repeatedly reliving the same five minutes before a terrorist attack. Profiles of this game and the others in the Uprising will pop up like mischievous gnomes over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, you can follow Uprising news on Twitter @XBLIGUprising or using the hashtag #IGU3, or at http://indiegames-uprising.com/

Once the games hit the market there will also be some unprecedentedly delicious video treats in store that you’ll find only on the Indie Ocean. Nine games, the voices of nine developers, and a big heap of my acerbic ruminations. Stick around.

    ON the Summer Uprising website you can now see video trailers for all the games being released through this promotion. http://indiegames-uprising.com/Default.aspx

    I’ve got my eye on a few of them including City Tuesday, Smooth Operator (all those years of working in the industry peaked my interest here) and Xeonminer (recent addition to Minecraft Indie Clones makes this look interesting)

      I agree on all counts, especially City Tuesday. Diehard Dungeon has me intrigued as well. I think the general feeling regarding Uprising III is there’s not a ‘meh’ game among them, and that’s a good thing indeed.

        I agree with that….last year though didn’t turn out as great as it seemed to me but this year looks much more promising I must say.
