Well I'd like to see some promising indie games



Can't wait to try them.

封印は 2度と解かれる事は ないはずでした ……しかし、それらのでき事が 伝説となったころ…


That's a very cool idea - promoting indie games while also engaging the community!


Let the best win!


Great contest,  nice idea.


I look forward to the inevitable future when these games will be featured on Alienware.TV for our consumptive pleasure.


Aven Colony is the only one that looks interesting to me. I hope some of the animations have improved since the trailer was made though.




Sounds intersting.



My vote is for Phantom Trigger
