Who says:

I want a game to be like this.

I want a game to be about

this special thing.

Independent games are any game

that a small team...

...or individual worked on

to their own vision.

Something that they felt like making,

coding and finishing.

The major thing that made

this possible... the rise of

digital distribution.

Retailers used to have

a lot of power...

...over every game creation company.

Because that was

the only way to sell games.

Nobody was willing to start

distributing games digitally.

Because WalMart would get upset

at them.

And take their products off the shelf.

And nothing would happen.

But Valve changed that,

when they came out with Steam.

They had no loyalties to retail.

So they just did it.

After that everyone else said:

'Well, we have to compete with them'

And there was this whole flood of:

XBox Live Arcade...

...Playstation network...

...and WiiWare followed suit.

2008 was the first year that

indie games started to do really well.

Audiosurf came out on Steam.

Then Castle Crashers...

...and Braid and World of Goo.

Osmos did really well in 2009, 2010.

Then Limbo came out and broke records.

And Minecraft came out as well-

Actually, it came out much earlier,

but then it really built up...

...and blew those records away.

And when we're talking about

'really well' ...

...we're talking about

millions of dollars in revenue.

So for teams of 200,

millions of dollars...

...doesn't really count for much.

But for a team of 2, 3 people...

... that's really significant money.

Hey Everybody,
