PBS Micro-Documentary about indie game creation.

 

Indie Games are a great celebration of the audio, visual, interactive media and in the past few years it has grown into a world wide phenomenon. PBS’s Off Book has put together a great video highlighting all of the amazing things that Indie Games have to offer. Exploring everything from sounds to mechanics of their games, PBS focuses on how a lean development team can move more agile in these realms compared to the major game developers who aim for a larger demographic (I like to call them Casual Hardcore Gamers, you know the people with a hardcore gamertag and only own an Xbox plus every Call of Duty). Indie games have come a long way in the last few years getting major recognition through Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, and simular platforms, as well as getting large amounts of crowd funding from services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Plus an award winning feature film Indie Game The Movie. Games have been craving more from the gaming experience and the indie game community has become hard to ignore.
