I'm looking for some good indie games to play so thought i would start a thread up.

I will start it off with Creeper world, must have played this game for almost 50 hours now - incredibly addictive and the missions are well thought out. Fairly unique concept as well.

So what are your top indie games?

Space sims! 

Evochron -  go anywhere in space, be a trader, mercenary or just explore the universe.

I recently purchased the Potato sack of indie games during the hype and lead up to the Portal 2 release, and have since been addicted to Defense Grid: The Awakening.

Very cool game.

My favorites include:

Revenge of the Titans
Ozmosis
Trine

If your interested in good indie games at good prices you should check out the Humble Bundles when they come available. Not saying all the games are interesting or even particularly good but there always seems to be at least one stand out.  Ive bought all 3 packs now and have been very happy with each.

I agree with you fully askelon, I have also brought all 3 packs and have been thoroughly impressed, particularly with Osmosis and Trine.
