Indie Games

Independent video games (commonly referred to as indie games) are video games created by individuals or small teams generally without video game publisher financial support. Indie games often focus on innovation and rely on digital distribution. Indie gaming has seen a rise in the latter half of the 2000s decade, primarily due to new online distribution methods and development tools. Some games originated as indie have become very successful financially, such as Braid, World of Goo, Flow, and Minecraft.

Meet Shreyas, A 17 Year Old Aspiring Game Dev Who Wants To Make A Difference

Hello everybody, Shreyas here. This android game “Sustain“ was made by me. I’m a 17 year old programmer from Bangalore, India. Growing up in the Silicon city of India, I always wanted to be a programmer. Not just your average software engineer, but someone who can contribute to humanity, to the world.

Mindhelix: Developer Interview With Marcin Puchalski

As an avid gamer who has a special place in his heart for Indie games, I have been scouring Steam Greenlight looking for new and upcoming projects by Indie devs. It’s not always easy to find the right game, but when when you do, it’s a great feeling to show support and see the game progress! For those who didn’t know, in Greenlight, developers can put up their game concepts (including screenshots, preview videos, and early builds) upon which community users can vote for these titles. Once titles have received a minimum number of votes, Valve will determine if the title is appropriate for the service, and then start working with the developer to bring the game/software to the Steam digital marketplace. Once this stage is reached, the game is considered “Greenlit̶...
