Man!festo Games (safely located here), on the other hand, is not a manifesto per se, but more of a gaming outlet based on one.
Run by a Central Committee and featuring top indy and innovative games, it has just (well, almost) gone live. Have a look. It's gaming for the masses and you might even have a chance to shoot an alien or two.
After all, comrades:
"The machinery of gaming has run amok.
Instead of serving creative vision, it suppresses it. Instead of encouraging innovation, it represses it. Instead of taking its cue from our most imaginative minds, it takes its cue from the latest month's PC Data list. Instead of rewarding those who succeed, it penalizes them with development budgets so high and royalties so low that there can be no reward for creators. Instead of ascribing credit to those who deserve it, it seeks to associate success with the corporate machine.
It is time for revolution."
