After the latest Frame Trap and the indies previewed at GDC I went on the hunt for more info. Plenty of these games sounded interesting, but the coverage out there is understandably and sparse and inconsistent. Thought I would collate some info for the games mentioned and see how many more I could find. So many beautiful art styles, we have to pray these games do not get bogged down in development for too long.

For anyone interested in discovering more, the best single current source I have found is this google doc compiled by Indieformer on youtube. Polygon have a few small indie preview vids up from GDC, just as we hit Pax East and the next wave of barely possible coverage..too many games to cover.
I would add thumbnails and trailer links to that doc, but I just ain't that savvy.
