Welcome to Unique Drops.
Mission statement - updated September 27, 2016:
To curate for our readers, the most interesting games (be it AAA or indie video games, tabletop, card games), highlight the best game inspired artwork, and tell the unique stories of contributors/creators within the community.
“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” -Winston Churchill
We are changing. Not sure about the perfect part, but we are changing.
Our change isn’t to our core, but a realignment of priorities, and a re-branding of what we’re doing. Our original mission statement outlined our intent to:
- Highlight video game culture and community
- Discuss video game’s impact on wider culture
- Highlight indie games
While Unique Drops will continue to write on industry and community trends, we’ve decided to shift our focus to a kind of curation for games (with a heavy emphasis on indie games). The booming billion-dollar video game industry has resulted in a deluge of new game releases, and while there exists a great number of sites that will (somehow) quantify a game's quality, we hope to provide a more nuanced and personal approach, where knowing the individual providing the suggestion carries it own weight.
For our readers, this will really be a continuation of the status-quo - highlighting our favorite games, and providing our unique views on the games we’re playing now or in the future - in addition to continuing to highlight artwork inspired by games, the development of games, and the people responsible for it all.
While it may be an unnoticeable change externally, it helps us understand where we’re trying to go.

Thank you for your continued support.
