I bet when you hear the phrase "indie games," your mind doesn't immediately run to stuff that looks like this:
This crazy-looking giant-robot extravaganza is Hawken, a multiplayer-only mech shooter coming to the PC. Hawken earns the "indie" moniker because the home page for the developer, Adhesive Games, lists all of nine people (and three former employees) working on this thing. I'm sure the use of Unreal Engine 3 has eased the development process a bit, but you have to admit it's a pretty damn impressive-looking project for such a small group of people to turn out. (How well it plays is yet to be seen, of course.)
This footage has been floating around since last week, but I just caught it today and wanted to bring it to the attention of anyone who hasn't seen it. Consider me interested, and consider yourself informed!
