    The original sticky thread isn't really well-arranged, and you have to read through a lot of pages to actually find the indies that have been posted there. So, by request of a fellow Codexer, I'm making a new thread here containing a list of indie RPGs currently in development or already released which is going to get updated semi-regularly (meaning whenever I feel like it).

    So here goes.

    Indies Currently in Development:
    Age of Decadence
    The Broken Hourglass
    Cyclopean
    Open-source PostApocRPG (with Codex thread)
    Java Classic RPG
    Splintered Core
    Shelter
    Scars of War
    Double Bear's zombie RPG
    Kamyran's Eye 1 and 2
    Grimoire Forever
    Zero-Project
    Krum
    Elementium
    Inquisitor
    DaggerXL (Daggerfall Remake)
    Driftmoon
    Dropship

    Indies already released:
    Spiderweb Software Games (Geneforge series, Exile series, Avernum series, Nethergate)
    Eschalon Book 1
    Depths of Peril
    Teudogar and the Alliance with Rome
    Prelude to Darkness
    UnReal World
    Kivi's Underworld
    Knights of The Chalice
    Undercroft
    King of Dragon Pass
    Eschalon: Book 2
    Winter Voices
    Din's Curse

    If you know of any indie RPGs that are not in the list, post them in this thread and I'm gonna update the list.

    I thought about adding that but since it doesn't have a website and isn't really supposed to be a proper RPG anymore from what I've heard... eh.

    Obviously, yes. It's at the very top of the page, above all the other sticky threads, and has the word "Sticky" written in front of it :wink:

    Removed the sticky from the old one as I wrote the link to it in the first post.

    This looks interesting, it is a flash version of a game like Baldur's Gate or so they claim. I am not quite sure what you would categorize it as. Could someone try it?

    Broken Hourglass is, like, the second link in the list. It's already there :P

    Added Zero Project. Dunno about Reluctant Hero, if I find enough indie vapourware titles I might add a new section to the list "Indie Vapourware Games".

    Don't know if it counts as indie since it's being published by 1C now, but A Farewell to Dragons is apparently going to be released in english in a couple weeks

    Damnit, Dicksmoker, if you took half the energy you spend smokin' dicks and applied it towards paying attention and playing RPGs you'd know about those games.

    Soooo... do roguelikes count?

    You could add King of the Dragon Pass, even if it's more of a strategy game.
