Hi Michael, the post about Koonsolo and their game got me thinking about what I think would be an excellent feature: Run a piece on a new indie game each week.
What I envision would be mentioning the name of the new game in the "what's coming soon story", having an article about the game with screenshots and a mini-interview with the creators on the same day each week (maybe monday?), a link on the main page for current Indie game, and previous Indie games, and finally another mention in the wrap-up piece you do.
Possibly, but hopefully, he wouldn't have to track them down after the first few- I would hope there's plenty of Linux game makers who would like a chance to get some recognition in front of a large audience.
There's also the option of doing interviews with developers of already released games (World of Goo, Caster etc.) speak to them about why they made a port in the first place, reception, pro/cons for developers, what they are working on next...
