FYI on creeping.
In case you don’t know DotA (from wikipedia):
Defense of the Ancients (DotA) is a custom scenario for Warcraft III, based on the “Aeon of Strife” map for StarCraft. The objective of the scenario is to destroy the opponents’ “Ancient”. The two teams’ ancients are heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI-controlled fighters called “creeps”. As in role-playing games, players level up their hero and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.
Apparently, this guy wrote the first ever Swedish song to reach number one on the Dutch Top 40 Chart.

If a DotA track wasn’t bad enough, (from last.fm)
The Swedish lyrics of the song “PlayBoten Anna” tell the story of a female IRC [internet chat] user mistaken for an IRC bot by the vocalist who later finds out the truth; subsequently, however, he states that she will always remain a bot in his eyes.
First, there’s this:

Indie Games’ In-depth Indie Game Guide.
The list is made up of a bunch of great free and non-free games of which I’ve played some – my opinions:
Darwinia: (not free) This one is supposed to be great (a classic indie), but I never got into it. It didn’t grab me in the first 15 minutes and I just never touched it again.
flOw: (free) Pretty good, mellow. A good time-waster if your energy level is on the low.
Gish: (not free) Has great original game mechanics, and great style.
Samarost: (free) Just beautiful, very atmospheric. Definetely one to try.
N: (free) My favorite platformer currently.
Cortex Command: (free) Awesome old-school pixel graphics, with a modern physics engine. Sort of like Worms I guess. Another one that was just a bit too tough for me to just pick up and run with so I just left it alone.
Alien Hominid: (not free) Another game with great style, you can play a bit of it for free on Newgrounds.
Mr. Robot: (not free) Very cute, but I can’t play puzzle games (this is a puzzle/rpg) too long before I put my fist through my monitor.
Battle for Wesnoth: (free) Pretty good turn-based tile wargame. Kept me busy for a couple of weeks. I played this back in 2005, but I know they are constantly updating it, so worth checking out, especially for the price.
Oasis: (not free) This one is supposed to be good, but the horrible set of instructions meant I had no fucking clue as to what I was doing. I was literally just clicking all over the screen and then I realized I could have more fun cleaning my toilet.
So yeah, check em out.
