In a week already bursting with crazy discounts, Steam has announced their Indie Spring Sale, featuring 1000 discounted indie titles. Since indie titles are already typically pretty cheap, we're talking extremely low barriers to entry here. Given the quality, fun factor, and artistic merit on tap, this is an amazing dollar-to-entertainment ratio. There are also categories for past Independent Game Festival Winners, and a category for games featured at PAX East which is happening concurrent with this sale.
In lieu of listing all 1000 discounts below (we thought about it), we're going to present our top recommendations, based on quality of the games and quality of the discount. We're also going to give less attention to titles that have been heavily discounted a million times before. We can't wait to hear your picks in the comments.
