So much of this is spot on. A good read by someone who seems to get it.
This is a really interesting movie about several Indie developers:
I'll have to watch that. :)
I've watched that movie. It's very good. But you realize just how hard and long the journey is to make a complete game.
Especially with a 2 or even 1 man effort. The amount of work required even in a smaller indie game is just staggering. It helps to explain the huge teams required for a monster such as Skyrim.
It definitely gives you an appreciation for any indie game out there. While it looks like it was easy looking at a finished product, its so much more involved than that.
I've started following @spacekatgirl on App.net just to see the process of the indie game she's almost finished making, and it's pretty intensive. The amount of work that goes into each minute of play-time is huge.
