Credit where credit’s due – Pixel Prospector have been doing great work for the past three years. Finding, playing and recording gameplay footage of hundreds of indie games that you might have missed out on – it’s the sort of archival site we need in this fast-moving world of indie gaming. To celebrate the site turning three years old, they’ve gone and released another of their impressively edited freeware roundups. This time, it’s a perfect showcase if you’ve got a friend or two to hand, and want something to play together. Check this out:
Almost all of these are local multiplayer games, and many of them co-op, so a gamepad or two is recommended. There’s a few online ones in there – check the youtube page for the video itself for more detail on which games support what. Of course, this isn’t their first such video – a good reminder of just how good things have been these past few years is their 2010 roundup of 235 free indie games in 10 minutes:
That is a whole lot of good stuff for a the kindest price-tag of all. Ain’t it beautiful? So many games, and that’s not even looking at the commercial side of things. So, well done to Pixel Prospector, happy third birthday, and best wishes for the future!
