They were actually called Shareware titles… games that were often free but of lesser quality than the mainstream title. While that definition can still ring true for some games today, the indie games industry has grown exponentially in the last ten years. While I'm sure most of you would have a hard time naming a single indie game made pre-2007, I'm doubly sure you could name at least 5 from 2009, especially if your reading this site regularly.
Anyways, with a new decade just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to revisit some of my indie favorites throughout this decade, one for each year starting with the year 2000. Keep in mind these games are in chronological order starting with the year 2000."
