As we approach the mid-year mark, we have found ourselves assessing which indie games have impressed us so far in 2012. The most fair way to approach the task seemed to be to look back over the games we have rated the highest; at least that way the arguments would be kept to a minimum.
Of course, in doing this we have to acknowledge that we haven’t reviewed lots of indie games that have been released this year. As this portion of the site focuses on console and PC games, we could only really include what we know too. We’ll nudge mobile.indiegamemag.com to see if they’ll do a similar thing too. We’ve also written about plenty of free indie games, which we tend not to give a rating too, so many of them aren’t included in this list. So, by no means should anyone consider this list definitive in any shape or form.
