Please tell me about this world of independent, underground, homemade games.

I don't even know what this genre is called. I basically know nothing except some people I follow on twitter make their own video games, I think primarily using something called Twine (which, let me emphasize, I don't know what that is). The main person I know about and have actually played one of her games and enjoyed it is Anna Anthropy.
I would like to play computer games occasionally, and the idea of underground, homemade games sounds very appealing and exciting to me.
I am not a "gamer" meaning I rarely play video games. However, I have very much enjoyed a few games which I will list roughly in order of my playing them:
Numerous text adventure games
I am not interested in shooting people in my video games. Besides that, I'm pretty much open to anything.
