Hooray!

It’s here!

It’s time to kickoff the very first month of Indie Game Gang!

As I mentioned in the announcement post, our game for January is The Beginnger’s Guide, so if you haven’t done so already please get your copy now. In the future I will try to notify IGG members of any sales or discounts I find for games we will be discussing, and I’d ask that other members share similar information with the group.

For this first week I suggest you try The Stanley Parable, by the same creator, to get a little more context about Davey Wreden as a game maker. Game Gang member Harlequin also recommends reading this blog post about The Stanley Parable and the fall out from that game’s success.

The first discussion topic will be posted on Monday, January 11th in the Indie Game Gang Steam group, so you have a bit of time to finish your first play through of the game. And no worries if you haven’t started playing it yet, it’s short and we’ll be continuing discussions all month.

Thanks so much to everyone who’s already joined Indie Game Gang. I’m so humbled by your enthusiasm and I honestly can’t wait to see what you guys have to say!

    Yay, exciting! I finally made my Steam account today (previously, I just used my hubs, but wanted my own ‘identity’ if you will for the IGG) and my plan is to play through The Beginner’s Guide this weekend!

    I loooove The Stanley Parable and am very excited to play The Beginner’s Guide when I can! Is it ok if I join the group even if I can’t participate this month? I can usually only buy games when they’re on sale >_< I have a big collection of indie games that I haven't even touched yet (thanks, Humble Bundle) so I want to follow along in case you pick a game I already have in the future, hahah!

      YES! Please join as a lurker! I wish I was able to offer discounts on the games we’ll be playing, but I’m trying to make sure I pass on any sale info I find on games I’m thinking of including.

    Penny for your thoughts...
