411mania: Welcome all to another edition of The 8 Ball. With the site’s main GOTY stuff out of the way, I wanted to try and make a secondary list of independent games that not everyone has played, or even heard of. The main criteria here are games that weren’t published or developed by extremely well-known teams. Some of the developers here are well regarded, but might not be what you would call popular. No EA’s, or Ubisofts, or Activisions, that sort of thing.
