"Games are art. Some are bad art, of course, but some are sublime products of the human soul. We strongly believe in small teams who love what they do and risk their livelihoods and their futures on ideas that they need to instantiate and impart to gamers.
But because of the conservatism of the conventional industry, teams like this will never get funded, or achieve conventional retail distribution.
Manifesto Games is committed to helping them find a market."
Fingers crossed, I'll need that kind of help in the near future.
Meanwhile, some of their games I recommend / would like to try out:
Wik & the Fable of Souls
... and still waiting for...
Play With Fire
