Submit Your Own Game Review

March 3, 2009

The Indie Game Magazine would love to have your indie or casual game review published in our magazine or on our website. We do not guarantee that your review will be selected for either, but promise to read all of the submitted reviews. Reviews will be selected based on their merit. Please refrain from reviewing your own games, or games that have already been featured.

If you would like a free copy of an indie game to review, you can still apply to write for our magazine HERE.

Please be sure to read about our ratings system HERE before completing the form below.

Improtu Ad Contest Winner

February 4, 2009

We ran a 24 hour contest for indie developers to get a free full page ad in our next issue. The winner is Roto Adventures (above). The ad made me smile and was humorous, so it had to be the winner. That’s a wrap on issue 3. It should be available 2/15/09.
