I think the most impressive piece of trivia I found about gaming was that Silent Hill 3 was made by eight people alone. I was impressed as I was in love with the game and kudos to the people for making such a great game. Nowadays we have indie games, made by a small team or one person alone, these normally range from two dimensional platformers or slightly detailed first person shooters that are quite frankly nothing to write home about. But one man has taken it upon himself to create a game all by himself. Yes, it's indie, but it goes beyond that of platformers or First person shooters.

Pigasus Games have recently published a press release of their game Adventurezator: When Pigs Fly, and they boast some pretty interesting ideas when it comes to overhauling the adventure video game as we know it.
Canonical's IndieGoGo campaign the absolutely amazing Ubuntu Edge has been running for almost 14 days now. They've currently raised a little over $8,000,000 of their $32,000,000 needed to actually supply the hardware to backers but the funding seems to have plateaued causing Canonical to add more incentives as well as a brand new video introducing the hardware, but is it enough or is the campaign destined to fail - I think it's the latter.
