It was a great showcase. Im interested in Mom Hid My Game, Morphies Law, Nine Parchments, Travis Strikes Back and maybe one or two others.

I have a few indie games on my radar. Outside of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, Dragon: Marked for Death and Nine Parchments from the Nindie Showcase looked interesting to me though I should stop lying to myself and pretending I didn't hate Trine 2. That said, I probably wait on Nine Parchments. Despite how cliche Dragon: Marked for Death looks and sounds, it seems like it could be a fun time so if it's under $20, I'll probably buy it.

Earth Atlantis looks pretty, as does that Mulaka game. Also the Elephant Yono game looks cute, I would buy that.
