Developer: Team Nitronic/the talented students at Digipen
I'm sure anyone who's reading this blog has at least heard of Nitronic Rush, but even after almost two years, it still deserves to be praised. Nitronic Rush is special, at least to me, for being the game that cemented my passion for indies and introducing me to the wonderful world of freeware games.
Nitronic Rush offers hours upon hours of content, from story and hardcore mode to challenges and a level editor. It's a game that never ceases to entertain and in my honest opinion, if you said Nitronic Rush was a game on XBLA or PSN, I'd believe you. It's that good and best of all, you can download it for free. (A gamepad is preferred)
