Welcome to the Indie Task Force! We are a group of editors dedicated to improving the quality of indie game articles in general. The project covers independent developers and games made by them, including games for Adobe Flash, iOS, Android, Xbox Live Indie Games, PS Minis, WiiWare, Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, and other systems.


The Indie Task Force covers articles about:

Because of the nature of self-publishing for independent games, it is expected that articles under this project meet the general notability guideline, requiring coverage from secondary sources on the developers or game titles. In particular, for games, it is expected that there is critical reception about the game from sources outlined in WikiProject Video Game Sources list.


Anyone can join the Indie Task Force. Just add {{Template:User ITF}} to your user page, and your name will automatically be added to Category:Indie Task Force members.

This is a list of Wikipedia members active in the task force, who have edited a article at least once within the last six months. If you want to join, simply add yourself to the roster by signing the bottom of the list with three tildes (~~~).
