New Site Launched: Pixel Prospector
News posted 30th July, 2009 by Jon Lambert  
Just today, a new site has been launched to the interwebs with the goal of highlighting upcoming indie games with promising prospects, and that site is... Pixel Prospector! Started by Simon Kaizen of the TIGsource forums, the site includes many good-looking games including some featured here on The Daily Click, such as Strife's Jade Phoenix and Klayman's Karma: The Game. Each game and developer is given a page with information about them. You'll find much to play here!

From Simon himself: Hi everyone, after working the last few weeks on this project i can now finally launch the site which is based on the promisingly good freeware games in development thread. if you as a developer or site visitor should know about any updates it would be nice when you mention them either in the comments or by letting me know otherwise to keep the site up to date - together.

Thanks for pointing this out, I hadn't noticed it before. Nice website! I'll definitely keep an eye on this. TIGsource mostly seems to avoid covering MMF games, for some reason.

Site looks great! Very smooth-like....

Very nice indeed - another great site that i didn't know about. I'm a bit of an internet hermit...

Well, there is the fact that "Just today,"... The site's been in the works for a few weeks now and just got launched today.

No, i really don't look very deep for gaming sites on the 'net. I rarely look at TIGsource and Indiegamer and i wouldn't have known about this for years if you hadn't have said anything!

Love the site (and not just because you have my game on there). It looks sharp and the navigation is simple.

very cool idea, the only thing I don't like is the name.
At first I thought it was a community site for pixel artists, the name doesn't sound like a freeware games site at all.

good domain names are hard to come by these days...

I was surprised to get mine, considering it's a common (albeit old skool) gaming term.

ZOMG! My game is on there??

Cool! I feel honored to say the least. Here's hoping something worthwhile comes out of this.
Posted by Johnny Look 31st July, 2009

true, but still I think it wouldn't be hard to come up with a more suitable name imo.

I don't see what's wrong with the name. Near all videogames are made with pixels.
Posted by Johnny Look 31st July, 2009

yeah sure but when I when I see a site with "pixels" in the name I imagine something to do with graphics creation, pixel art and stuff.
