Rezzed's huge indie Leftfield Collection announced

First confirmed titles include Gunpoint, McPixel, Gateways and BaraBariBall.

So you can play games like Far Cry 3 and Borderlands 2 at Rezzed next month (6th/7th July, Brighton Centre), but it's the PC and Indie Games Show, so where's all the indie?

Well, let me tell you. There will be hefty presences for games like the above, but at the centre of the show floor will be a massive indie arcade we're calling the Leftfield Collection.

The Leftfield Collection will be nothing but indie goodness. We've got 2D heist platformer Gunpoint by the lovely Tom Francis; McPixel by Mikolaj Kaminski, where players have to stop things exploding; amazing Portal-inspired 2D title Gateways, by Smudged Cat Games; multiplayer sports game BaraBariBall by Noah Sasso; and the likes of Trash TV by Lawrence Russell and QRTH-PHYL by Hermit Games.

There are loads more still to announce, too. We were going through the list of candidates behind the scenes earlier this week with fellow curators Rock, Paper, Shotgun guys, and we feel pretty confident that if you spun out of E3 thinking that you've had enough of neck-stabbing, bows and arrows and sexual assault (sorry, "categorically no sexual assault"), then this will be the perfect tonic.

Here's BaraBariBall, for example.

Check out the newly rejigged Rezzed.com website for more details on the many PC and indie games we've already announced, plus the developer sessions (Introversion! Creative Assembly! Splash Damage!) and other attractions.

The Leftfield Collection is curated by Eurogamer, RPS and David Hayward, who also handles the wonderful Indie Games Arcade at the Eurogamer Expo each year. "This is just the tip of what we'll be showing in the Leftfield Collection, and on these titles alone I'm already quite hyped up about it," is what David reckons. Boom.

It's going to be a feast of PC and indie gaming. Friday 6th and Saturday 7th July at the Brighton Centre. Come!
