Just kidding. These are blogs I really like!
Indie Games, The Weblog is a great blog for discovering things you didn’t even know you wanted. It’s exactly what it says on the tin: a blog about indie games. REAL indie games, not just ones in the main stream. I really liked the look of Sky Break and Jotun. If you want to make your wallet lighter, Indie Games The Weblog can give you some good ideas on ways to spend those hard-earned sheckles.
It’s easy to read, and easy to digest, with short but understandable articles created practically every day. The red-and-black dominated design is pretty nice too, and it’s easy to find their top articles with a click of your mouse. Definitely worth your time.
Looking for something more technical? Check out Jeff on Games. Written by Jeff Ward, a veteran of Bethesda Studios, it can get you your game design fix in a jiffy. The graphics may be less flashy than Indie Games, The Weblog, but the content is fantastic. You’ve got your programming, your game jams, even things like open vs. closed offices. The phrase that comes to mind: Neato Burrito.
What kinda game blog would this be if I didn’t talk about a single game? Stardew Valley is the dev blog for the game of the same name: Stardew Valley. And let me just say, if there was an award for nicest game developer in the world, it would go to Eric Barone, AKA Concerned Ape, the SOLO developer, designer, and composer for the whole game.
This blog is a great way to look through the entire four years of this games development, what has changed, what has stayed the same, what was removed… Even though the game was released, it’s still being updated, too. And if you like what you see, consider checking out Stardew Valley on steam!
