RPG Vault has an interesting but short editorial by Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb Software fame about the realities of indie development.
Whenever I read one of these articles, I usually find that the writer presents one ray of hope, one bold knight who will struggle to invent the new genres that will totally rock us - the Indie Game Developer.Vogel makes some alarmingly good points about innovation in gaming. Go read it.
Well, speaking as an Indie Game Developer, I have this to say... Don't look at us, man.
Supposedly, as I understand it, we are free. e don't have The Man keeping us down and rejecting our ideas and forcing us to spend 80 hours a week programming the new shading engine for Doom 4. We got nothin' to lose, so we can just be creative.
