Indie Game Crowdfunding (ongoing)



Here is our ongoing collection of hand-selected crowdfunding indie game campaigns that worth taking a deeper peek into. ♥


There are many amazing games that are seeking crowdfunding at any given time, and this is our ongoing page dedicated to showing off some of the ones that catch our interest the most. It is impossible to share them all, but we will do our best to occasionally add in new ones that we think are worth a deeper look so we encourage you to bookmark this page and come back. Together we can all help these indie games succeed in their crowdfunding state.

This page will be ordered with our newest additions on the top (so it is easier you for to find the new content when you come back). If you want to try and get your campaign in front of us, tag @indiegamelover on Twitter with a link and the end date (but, like all submissions, we can make promises you will be added). ♥

15 Best Indie Games of 2019 ❤ Part 3



Indie Game Lover has featured over 150 interesting and outstanding new indie games released during the first half of 2019, but which of these games were the best received by their respective audiences from January through June? Which of these games continued to catch our eye and capture our imagination?

To try and answer that very question, we got the silly idea in our heads to try and round up the very, very best indie games released in 2019 so far! It was a very silly idea, did we mention that?

Well, we've given it our best shot, and the first part of this effort can be found through this link here, while the second part is right over here.

What about the third and final piece of this particularly tricky puzzle? Why, that can be found below:

Moonlight Feature: Void Bastards



"Void Bastards is a revolutionary new strategy-shooter that will test your wits as well as exercise your aim. Can you lead the misfit prisoners of the Void Ark through the derelict spaceships and myriad dangers of the Sargasso Nebula?"

What do you love about your game?
Farbs-- “How about: "This seems silly, but I really love the doors. I love that they tie in to just about every other system. They affect AI pathfinding, AI vision, audio propagation and stealth. Ship power can force them all open or closed, ship traits can make them all locked or unlockable, character traits can automatically open them or lock them super fast, some cost merits to lock and unlock, and authorization upgrades can make them faster to dealth. Then you get to door windows - you can see through them, but with the right character trait NPCs can't see you. And then with the right weapon you can fire through them, and then some ships have doors with big windows, and some doors have no windows at all. The point is, Void Bastards is all about the interplay of many tightly interconnected systems, and you can see that even in something as mundane as a door. I love that."

Ben Lee-- “The subtext.”

7 New Indie Games ♥ July Week 5



We finally did it, everybody! We finally thwarted the hex bestowed upon the world by that mean space-faring wizard from Andromeda, who cursed us all to living through the month he called 'July'! He said we would never make it to August without some sort of miracle, and while it's not really clear how the curse was lifted, we've ended up in August. Somehow. Phew, glad that that's over with!

July wasn't all bad, however, thanks to the arrival of a wonderful assortment of excellent indie games over the course of the month, with the likes of Sea of Solitude, Blazing Chrome, Eagle Island, Etherborn, Sky, and Songbird Symphony headlining the release list.

There were even more indie game releases to enjoy, too, like this batch from the first week of July, this collection from the second week, this haul stolen from the third week of the month, and this other list from the fourth week.

And what about the fifth and final week of July? Well, our latest collection of newly released indie games from that very week can be found... below!

Just a little note that the August Indie Game Link Up Thread is live on Twitter so be sure to share your games (even WIP or crowdfunding stages). ♥


Just a little note that the August Indie Game Link Up Thread is live on Twitter.
Check out some of June's highlights below. ♥

Head to the linkup to share your games (ready to buy, WIP, wishlisting, or crowdfunding etc). I will be looking at everything, doing a lot of RTs, pulling for minis-shouts, putting together a collection of highlights for a post at the end/start of the month, and possibly more just from this thread alone. Yes it is a lot of work but I love helping. ♥

P.S. Submit again; always wanting to see progress, updates, or game reminders for everyone even if you submitted (or were highlighted) last time!

You can also submit in full for other possibilities on the submission forms here.

You can chat with the fam as well on Discord if you'd like (never a requirement for anything).
