I’d like to direct your attention to a forum I just discovered on accident while reading through examples on the TVtropes page for Eversion. (By the way, don’t read about Eversion on its trope page, go download it.)

TIG Forums is a place for independent game developers to hang out and talk about game design. It looks pretty cool, though I’ll admit I only stopped in to look around and try to figure out what their current competition is, but I’m in the habit of pointing my readers in the direction of cool-looking websites I find, because if you’re reading my blog, you probably have more time to look at them than me. *sideways glance*

I figure that Eversion is a fantastic game, and if it was created for a competition held by this forum, then the competitions at the forum must attract some cool people — it follows then that the forum itself must be pretty cool (or otherwise attracts the kind of attention that cool people want) and is worth investigating. Or something like that. One of these days, I’ll get around to actually clicking through some of these sites…
