Today a reader sent me an email about this new contest for RPG Maker games, and I wish I had time to play them all. I mean, sure, RPG Maker games aren't always... polished, but there are some good ones out there, like Exit Fate and Barkley's Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden. They're almost always free, and if you do enough digging, you can find some really cool indie RPGs out there.
So check out the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest. It's sponsored in part by Humble Bundle, and it's already full of tons and tons of indie RPGs that you can download and play right now.
Also, thanks to the power of crowdsourcing, the games are all full of comments from people who have played and can offer feedback on each one.
