Wrath of the Lamb highlights this week's Best of Indie Games

Sister site looks at the top PC Flash/downloadable indie titles released over the past week, including an expansion pack for The Binding of Isaac, interactive fiction for iOS devices, and more.
This week on "Best Of Indie Games," we take a look at some of the top independent PC Flash/downloadable titles released over this last week. The delights in this edition include a new browser game by The Stanley Parable's creator Davey Wredon, an interactive fiction for iOS devices, another noteworthy selection from the latest Ludum Dare competition, plus a handful of picks from Indie Royale's Graduation Bundle. Here's some recent highlights from Game Pick: 'Wrath of the Lamb' (Edmund McMillen and Florian Himsl, commercial indie) "Edmund McMillen's popular action-roguelike The Binding of Isaac gets a bushel of new content this week with the release of the anticipated Wrath of the Lamb expansion pack, available via Steam." Game Pick: 'MiG Madness' (Bionic Shark Studios, commercial indie) "MiG Madness keeps its objectives simple: players must shoot down squadrons of enemy planes and collect power-ups throughout dozens of waves of increasing difficulty." Game Pick: 'Life in the West' (Davey Wredon, browser) "The Stanley Parable's creator Davey Wredon is back with a new game entitled Life in the West. In this 5-minute experience, you'll get the chance to man Kanye West's twitter account and watch as he slowly goes insane." Game Pick: 'The Dreamhold' (Andrew Plotkin, freeware) "The Dreamhold, though primarily designed as an interactive fiction tutorial, is a full length adventure with numerous side-quests, unique puzzles and an expert mode that will appeal to the veterans of the genre." Game Pick: 'The FP' (Drafthouse Films, commercial indie) "The FP is a post-apocalyptic tale in which gang members battle for control of the Frasier Park wasteland by competing in Beat-Beat Revelation, a fictional knockoff of Konami's rhythm game Dance Dance Revolution." Game Pick: 'subAtomic' (Murray Lewis & David Blake, freeware) "subAtomic happens to be a short game with simple puzzles, simple sounds and simple graphics that emphatically showcases just how funny, refreshing and elegant such an unassuming offering can be." Game Pick: 'Dead Pixels' (CSR-Studios, commercial indie) "Dead Pixels is neat little game where the wit extends far beyond the very clever name. The game itself claims to be 'an 8-bit zombie sim', but in reality it's far closer to a mash-up of Left 4 Dead and River City Ransom." Game Pick: 'Happy Jets of Water' (Zsolt Bartok, freeware) "In Happy Jets of Water players have to complete 25 water-gunning challenges, which often involves tweaking the game's variables in the Building a Battle mode, to unlock new features including arenas, weapons, game modes." Game Pick: 'Love Me Not' (Uncade, commercial indie) "Inspired by the childhood petal-picking game 'he (or she) loves me / loves me not,' Love Me Not challenges players to fend off waves of lovelorn attackers by flinging flower petals."
