About IGM:

Indie Game Magazine is an independently owned, developer-centric, video game magazine. Indie Game Mag reviewsand reports news on indie and casual games only! To our knowledge, we are the only exclusively indie game magazine available...so we have that going for us.

What are indie games? Indie games are video games made by only a hand full of people, as opposed to the massive teams that make up the largest game studios. Indie Games are typically published by the people that make them or by some other small casual portal or distributor.

What are casual games? Casual games in many cases are made by small indie game developers and qualify as indie games. Casual games are defined by simple rule sets and appeal to a wide mass audience. Typical casual game genres include: match-3, time management, seek&find, puzzle, etc. Indie games are often times casual games, but casual games are not necessarily indie.
