The Indie Mine - On the Topic of Indie Games and Game Categorization.
Perhaps weíre just looking at this in the wrong way. Another way people tend to describe indie games is by calling them the innovators of the games industry, which can be true. Indie games do sometimes innovate, and the top-rated and best-selling ones typically do. However, this isnít always true. While Iíd love to say that indie gaming is all about innovation, often it really isnít. Indie developers and studios also need to feed themselves, so they are often just as worried about turning a profit as big publishers and studios are. This isnít necessarily a problem, although it does mean that even indie gaming tends to follow trends, meaning that many of the same type of game are sometimes released within a short period.
