8 Indie Gems From 2012 That You Probably Missed

GamerZines writes:

As much as the Christmas break was about catching up with friends and family, we probably spent just as much time playing games that we’d been ignoring over the past twelve months. Inevitably enough thanks to the fantastically generous ongoing Steam sale, we also added to that substantial offering and snapped up some indie gems for a relative pittance.

The thing is rather than spending more time with the previous year’s most celebrated ‘indie’ releases like Hotline Miami, Natural Selection II, Torchlight II and the frustratingly perplexing Thirty Flights of Loving, we decided to spend time searching out more of the under-appreciated gems which for one reason or another completely slipped under most gamers’ radars during 2012. (Hero Academy, Miasmata, PC, Rocketbirds: Hard Boiled Chicken, Stealth Bastard, Thomas Was Alone, Titan Attacks!, Zombie Driver HD)
