Default The Rise Of Indie Games

Indie Games are usually what some consumers might consider those “artsy obscure titles that hipsters play.” Lately however, that definition has been shifting and changing with the steep rise in prominence and popularity of indie titles. By now, indie titles can encompass any genre, have vastly varying degrees of quality and can even be found on any platform. If one were interested in defining indie games, in its current state, it’d be important to first take a look at the word itself. “Indie” is shorthand for Independent, so when a company or game describes itself as Indie it’s making itself independent from the majority. This “majority,” in the case of video games, comes in the form of big name publishers and large game development companies.
