Viva la Indie Revolution

“I don’t pass on five million, and it’s inconceivable that someone would, but that’s not what a large company is designed to do. They are not oriented around snacking. They want to fill their baleen with seawater and strain out four and a half tons of krill per day. “

Tycho (aka Jerry) from Penny Arcade pens exactly what’s happening with the recent renaissance of gaming that’s taking place. Big companies can’t sustain themselves with smaller titles, yet a large number of the best games to come out in recent years are just that – small indie titles. He thinks the tides are turning and don’t look good for big publishers, but I think that there’s plenty of room at the table. Regardless, it’s a great time to be a video game fan.

P.S. You’re playing Shovel Knight, right?
