If any of you know about video games and the Internet then you probably know about Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw. Hes the creator of Zero Punctuation. He's every game developers worst nightmare, the fast talking, hat weilding online game reviewer.
Well when hes not slamming SS Brawl and making fun of GTA, he makes indie games as well.

Well he's made 1... But its AWESOME. It may not be beautiful graphicaly like Marks games, but the gameplay is really fun and it gets quite addictive.
Check it out:

In short you play as a thief and you're trying to get your reputation up by completing the missions with as little disturbance as possible.

He's made many an adventure game as well... you should visit www.fullyramblomatic.com and get the Chzo series (5 Days a Stranger, 7 Days a Skeptic, Trilby's Notes, and 6 Days a Sacrifice, they are related to this Trilby game) if you want some pant-wettingly good adventure games...

...and yes Art of Theft is good, but I wasn't terribly good at it Sad

Also, for something a little like Art of Theft but harder, he made the 1213 series, that are a little more like Prince of Persia/Flashback in execution and a little (okay, a lot) more bloody.

The Escapist is a fantastic digizine. I think I liked it more before they made it a huge site sort of thing, but it's still great.
