5 reasons : Why we like Indie Game?


And why we like Pig-Min? >.<


1. Sounds (Looks) cool.

'Indie' means 'Independent'. Well. It doesn't matter whether you know 'independent from of what', however it sounds (looks) cool. :)


2. Something different (from major games).


We can't expect [GTA 4] from indie games. (Maybe something similar to [GTA 1]?) But we could expect [Uplink], 'Hacking game which could be compared to [GTA]'. [Uplink] is NOT big-budget game as [GTA 4], but Rockstar can't (or might not) make [Uplink]. We can get [Uplink] / [Blackwell Legacy] / [Karoshi], only from Indie Game scene.


3. Genres which are Not available in Major Maket anymore.

You might like some side-scroll or Top-down shooter, but no major company will release them. You could play something old, but wish to meet kinda new games. So what can you do? Get some shooter as [Jets'n'guns] or [Crimsonland]1, from Indie Game scene.


4. Kinda brotherhood, or be more friendly?

There are some 'brotherhood' feeling among Indie Music scene. There could be somewhat similar for Indie Game scene, even we don't have some live club & small concerts.

And even if you don't join some brotherhood or clan, we could send friendly mail to Dave Gilbert at Wadjet Eye Games & get kind answer, while we can't be so easily friend with CEO of EA or Project Manager of [Rock Star].


5. Pride (for what you like).

 You can't blame your friends who enjoys [World of Warcraft], however you could be proud of playing something indie RPG, as [Aveyond] / [Geneforge 5]. Something indie & not-so-well-known things are always our favorites, who wish to have some pride in cultural taste. :D

Footnote.
  1. Eh... These are already older games, too, anyway just for example. :) [Back]
