Quick Fix: Ushering in another year of indie games

A belated Happy New Years to readers and indie gamers worldwide! Once again, thank you for reading Indie Game Enthusiast and participating on this journey through the unique and inventive world of indie games. 2013 was a great year, with some incredible releases like Gone Home, Badland, Outer Wilds, and far too many quality games to list here. And 2014 promises to continues this impressive trend.

IndieStatik's Top 100 of 2014
Recently, IndieStatik published a pair of fantastic articles that I'll definitely be looking back to as the year progresses, listing their 100 most anticipated upcoming games as well as a whole separate article of honorable mentions. You can read them here (Top 100, Runner-ups). Distance! Hyper Light Drifter! SCALE! And so many more. Yes, 2014 is going to one hell of a year

2014 Kickstarters
2013 was not only a fantastic year in terms of releases, but also in promising and successful Kickstarters. From the hair-breadth success of Windforge and Neverending Nightmares' eleventh hour funding to the Hyper Light Drifter's and Rimworld's impressive final hauls, we saw myriad projects find success. 2014 is getting off to an impressive start, with four promising campaigns in January alone:

Proven Lands - "mid-January"
Galactic Princess - "mid-January"
Mighty Tactical Shooter - "No, not early January"
MTB Freeride - January 14th

Then throughout the 2014, expect Kickstarters for Edgar, Witchmarsh, Darkest Dungeon, Path of Shadows, Oblitus, possibly Rain World, and others.
