From Pixel Prospector comes these two great videos – the first shows off 235 free indie games that you can download RIGHT NOW, and the second shows off 190 free indie games that are still in development. Download links for the games are available here.

  • KHojo

    Let's nominate the 5 best and 5 worst games in these videos

  • Secret Admirer

    Is this the E3 IndieĀ® Conference? I like the new releases for the coming year, we can actually play them with controllers.

  • xhunterko

    It's videos like these that keep me inspired to continue to try making games.

  • phubans

    AHHHH they ALL look SO WONDERFUL!! Where does one even begin?! BTW, thank you for including Madhouse & Love Up! in your 190 games in development video. If you included Sword of Legends (didn't watch that far yet) then thanks, even though the game might not be free!

  • merkwuerdigich

    Lovers gonna love.

  • robolee

    I must have played at least 80% of the games in the first video :) great videos

  • AdamButcher

    Ooh they included my old jpeggy video of Tobias in there…better get back to that.

  • Asdf

    There sure is a lot of shooting in indie games.

  • rinkuhero

    that's just kaizan's preference. he's mentioned how he focused on shooting games and platformers in these vids cause those are the games he enjoys. he doesn't enjoy rpgs and adventure games so they're excluded. doesn't mean they don't exist.

  • Asdf

    I know :). My comment was meant as a comment on that. I don't have a problem with videos highlighting platformers and shooters per se, but these videos give off the impression that those are the only genres available, which obviously isn't the case. There's an amazing variety of indie games, so why not show it off?

  • Asdf

    Well, to be fair to the videos, platformers, shooters and clones.

  • rinkuhero

    i agree but as someone who worked on a vid of this type (100 game maker games in 10 minutes) it's a huge amount of work, and playing through games one doesn't enjoy just because they're important or just to be representative isn't usually a fun use of time. better this than nothing. i'm sure someone will make a 100 indie and adventure games video one day or something like that.

  • Javet

    I'm proud that this guy is my successor. He's amazing.

  • Sparky

    Wow, inspirational stuff. There are a lot of neat looking games in these videos.

    I need some holidays to play them all ;) Awesome vid!

    thanks for the feature derek! :)

    as rinkuhero (thanks man) already pointed out the video just shows games i prefer and therefore it features many platformers and shooters. this video doesn't represent the whole indie scene with all its different genres of course… and for that reason it would be cool if other people would create something similar with games from the rpg, adventure, strategy sector etc etc….
    moreover i also wrote a short explanation over at RPS about that topic… here's the link:

    A big thank you Pixel Prospector for including Coloroid in the list. The help your provide to all indies is memorable. A highly appreciated and amazing job. Congratulations!

  • Gnurfos

    Thanks for the nice video ! It makes me both want to play them, and create my own.

    Is there any way to know which of those games have a linux version ? I mean some kind of database that could be searched, rather than having to visit each game's website.

  • http://www.pixelprospector.com/ PixelProspector


    sure :)

    moreover you can check out this page where you can search by genre, multiplayer, dev tool, system etc.

  • Gnurfos

    Thanks ! I think I tried a simple text search and did not find anything. But now it works, so I'm not sure :)

    I'm a bit disappointed to see so few running on Linux. Maybe their creators are advertising more in the Linux than the gaming community (I always wondered whether those Tux* games are good).

  • cigarettes

    Hoorah for 3 seconds of Gore Hounds footage! It reminds me that I have to work on it…
