Here's some news - the Independent Gaming weblog is moving to a new domain and becoming IndieGames.com: The Weblog
, as part of the CMP Game Group (Independent Games Festival
creator)'s outreach into the independent gaming scene.
Please change your bookmarks to point to IndieGames.com: The Weblog at http://www.indiegames.com/blog
- indygamer.blogspot.com will no longer be updated. The Feedburner RSS feed for Independent Gaming
has been automatically switched to point to the new site. Comments are being migrated as we speak.
Thanks to the CMP Game Group and Simon Carless for the invaluable support and hosting of the new site; we promise to continue to serve all your indie games news and review needs as we have done before. Here's a word from Simon about this change:
Simon: "Hey folks - you may know me already from running GameSetWatch
and also helping to manage various other Game Group properties like Gamasutra
, Game Developer magazine
, and - of course - the Independent Games Festival
, which is definitely the most relevant for this announcement!
This whole concept started a couple of months ago when Tim announced
that he might have to shut the Independent Gaming blog
unless he got some help in hosting and partly paying for his time working on the site. We wanted to help out, and we'd already launched IndieGames.com
to help educate people about independent games, so having him move his blog over here made a lot of sense.
So nothing is really changing here - Tim's still got an open editorial remit to blog and interview who he likes, and we may occasionally pop in to mention IGF and other Game Group-related news - which is likely of interest anyhow. We'll also be working with him to look at whether we can help to better develop the indie scene through setting up better distribution mechanisms for independent games - though we've only just started thinking about this."
