    Has someone else been playing on the Computer Game Name Generator?

    I looked at Spy Party (which looks fantastic), but there just isn't enough known about it and I've not been hands on either.

    "Platform: PC Exclusive"
    Minecraft isn't PC exclusive. It's available on PC, Mac, Linux.

    I have my pre-order of Frozen Synapse and very much looking forward to it.
    The built-in YouTube upload feature is pretty nifty for those really intense games. It's simple in theory, but a fantastically executed game.

    The only one i'd heard of out of all of them was minecraft, and now looking at them all, funnily enough minecraft is now my least favourite out of all of them.
    Frozen synapse looks great, gonna get me a copy :)

    Out of those, Atom Zombie Smash looks like my cup of tea. Better be on Steam though.

    To be a real pedant, it's available on Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD, etc etc. Anything that can use Java, technically.

    Indie = Independent, as in 'without a publisher' or 'of such a small size and focus as to be considered such'
