This sounds awesome -  I haven't heard anything about microgames in years.  It seemed like the trend had been toward bigger and bigger.  Glad to see microgames are coming backl.

Casual Game Insider is one party I am glad I was not late to. Paper or PDF? Full of insights, great reviews, and reading is good for my brain, I try to use it when playing games, to  have fun. Thank You!
