* '''What qualifys as an indie game?''': We don't feel it's necessary to be to strict about definitions for the purposes of this site. If you can't find an FAQ on [http://www.gamefaqs.com/ GameFAQs.com], consider it an indie game!

Looking for help with an indie game? Simply type the name of the game into the searchbar at the side, or find it on the site's [[:Category:All_Games|Master List in the "All Games" category]]. If you can't find a walkthrough for the game you're looking for, you could try asking for help over at the [http://www.distractionware.com/forums/index.php?board=4.0 forums].  
* '''Why create this site?''': Because we figured having a central place to go to find walkthroughs for indie games would be useful. Walkthroughs for difficult indie games can be very difficult to find, especially if it's been a while since the release. Having a place to store them means there's no danger of the site hosting the walkthrough disappearing once the initial activity around the game's died down.

Welcome to IndieFAQs! Our goal is to provide a central database of walkthroughs and FAQs for independent games. As it's a wiki, anyone visiting the site is free to add their own guides.

Looking for help with an indie game? Simply type the name of the game into the searchbar at the side, or find it on the site's Master List in the "All Games" category. If you can't find a walkthrough for the game you're looking for, you could try asking for help over at the forums.

For more information about the site and help on contributing, see the about page.
