I was searching news sites that post game news, about indie games.
Something similar with http://www.1up.com.

I just found them today, so I am not sure how good or interesting it is.

http://www.toastface.com
Whilst we could go around various websites, searching for the latest news, this is not how we primarily intend on attaining our information. If someone has an update on a game, or information on new games, completed or in production etc.

http://www.gametunnel.com/
Looks decent and "1up-ish".

http://www.tigsource.com/
- seems a bit like a blog. To me blogs are less "easy" to the eye to quickly scan or read.

http://www.indieinformer.com/index.php
Scans multiple websites for news, including Gametunnel, mentioned above, but... it takes too much effort for me (non-knowing reader. which I am) to understand what every post is saying.

And something else I found:
http://forums.indiegamer.com/
Tips/information on development and all.

This is a good site. They're sometimes a little behind on outside sources of news, but on the other hand their forum generates a lot of their own news. Their forum is pretty chill, and there are a lot of knowledgeable people on it making some cool stuff. It's a nice, relaxed environment (but read the rules before you post and don't talk like you're on AOL).

Also, aside from TDC, TIGForums is the largest source of new Construct users :).

This forum, on the other hand, is full of arrogant jerks. Don't post there unless you're making the next Peggle or Bejeweled clone, or unless your game looks like it was made by a five-man team with a budget of several thousand dollars. If your game is low-res, freeware, and has the slightest flaw in it they're likely to tear you a new one because they're "professionals." Indiegamer Forums is the dark side of the indie force.

Thank you for this link. I found a pretty cool puzzler called "Glum Buster" on it after doing some browsing.

Tigsource is probably the best source of indie news, I've found.

So, in other words, I should email Yahtzee and get him to review some games that these "professionals" have made...?
