Started playing with some of the features in Typo 4.0. Like images in the sidebar! Whoo! I’ve been waiting for that for ages. I can finally add the rotating “Recommended Games” thing to our site. TIGSource was getting so jealous of Indygamer and Jay is Games!

There are only a few games in rotation right now, but I’d like to hear what other games we’ve covered that you think deserve to be there. These games should be fun, first and foremost. Which games would you show someone to introduce them either to that genre of game or to independent gaming in general?

Look for more tweaks, fixes, and additions in the future! I’m really amped about improving the site now. Throw your suggestions at me, too.

    I tossed a suggestion at yr inbox a little bit ago. But it’s not exactly for the front page.

    As for the games in rotation… How far back do you want to go? It could be cool to showcase the cream-of-the-crop type stuff, but maybe that’s better off as a feature or ongoing list or something.

    Also, I’ve liked the few times when a quote from the comments has wound up in the Pulse. Maybe have a Quote of the Moment type thing as a separate sidebar entry?

  • Derek

    I’ll get back to your e-mail right now. Good suggestion, btw. :)

    For the games in rotation, let’s go all the way back in the Way Back Machine. As for an ongoing list, I added a “Highly Recommended” category for cream-of-the-crop stuff.

  • http://www.TScreative.net BMcC

    Oh, cool! It’d be nice to be able to point inquisitive folks to one place.

    Could make family reunions slightly less awkward.

  • http://www.TScreative.net BMcC

    Hm. We don’t have an entry for Cave Story.

    Perhaps retroactive articles should be made for the sake of inclusion in the Highly Recommended category?

  • Derek

    Yeah, I was just thinking that. :)

  • http://www.TScreative.net BMcC

    Cools. I may do some of those, then.

    After I get some sleeeeep. (It’s 5AM here.)

  • DanDanger

    I thinks the amazing “Keith Goes Painting” (www.wolfysgames.com) should be included in my unbiased and completely independent opinion on the subject of highly recommended games… ahem.

  • crackers

    I think you should only rotate bad games to set TIGSOURCE apart from all the other gaming sites.

    Apart from Alawar, obviously. ;)

  • Lorne Whiting

    Commander Keen! Knytt!

    I also recommend Notrium for the randomly recommended list :)

  • http://ithamore.blogspot.com/ ithamore

    flOw is my favorite browser game.

  • http://www.arsecast.com DrDerekDoctors

    You got a real purty mouth there, ithamore. ;)

    Also, does this new blogophication software support them “type in the letters” things so we can pre-emptively unpornify messages?

  • http://www.arsecast.com DrDerekDoctors

    Yes, that’s right, Captain Chas. :)

  • http://ithamore.blogspot.com/ ithamore

    My mouth is by no means “purty.” It is simply a mouth.

    DDD, I don’t know whether or not you are suffering some sort of delusion or simply trying to construct a joke, but I do know that a majority of posts made online are misinterpreted. So, whether it is your lack of communication or my lack of understanding that makes your comments toward me quite rude, I’m not sure. But I do know I like flOw better than most browser games, and everything at http://www.eyezmaze.com/ is rather spiffy as well.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captchas Captchas

    I say ithamore is a computer!

  • http://www.TScreative.net BMcC

    He shows all the symptoms!

  • Spartacus

    I’m Spartacus.

  • Bob

    I’m not.

    Sure, I’m a computer: a biochemical computer with a sub-quantum processing core. Which is why I find signatures such as “there are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary and those who don’t” to be quite humorous.

  • TIGDev367

    The “10 types of people” thing is commonly misunderstood. It actually goes like this:


  • BenH

    I always thought that was how it was supposed to go ;)

  • http://16x16.org nenad

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Counterclockwise in the sidebar :)

  • http://www.tscreative.net BMcC

    But everyone else would.


  • http://16x16.org nenad

    *sigh* I suck at pimping.

  • Tim

    don’t forget SCUMRPG.

  • Shabadage

    Lyle needs a spot up there.

  • Shabadage

    see, I suggest it then it shows magically. WOOT.

  • http://www.TScreative.net BMcC

    @nenad: Pimpin’ ain’t easy.

    And I was just kidding, of course. :)

    @Shabadage: Almost as if it were _already there._ ;)

  • Jeff Lindsay

    We should do video reviews like this dude:


  • Shabadage

    @BMcC – Nuh-uh! I’m magical, bitch! XD

  • negative zero

    little fighter 2, little fighter 2!! wait, that hasn’t been reviewed yet, has it?

  • DrDerekDoctors

    I wasn’t rude, I said you mouth was purty! That’s *nice*.

    I shall go and have a cry now…

    Also you like casual games so you’re the antichrist. ;)
