    Question The Future Of Indie Gaming ( Example Witness ) On PS4

    Ok i seen like others the new indie game WITNESS and i seen a new path for indie game designers and gamer's... And it seems like they are moving into GAME DESIGN like well known GAME COMPANIES aka Ubisoft

    Will we lose the independence creative thinking of INDIE CREATORS and just move into another GAME COMPANY

    What do you mean?

    Indie development has been on a big rise this generation due to digital distribution, especially on the PC. It could be said it was technically non-existent before. I expect the next generation to continue this trend.

    I was watching the giantbomb feed of the event, and one of the commentators mentioned about there being the same 5 step process to self publishing that the PS3 had.

    If anything the PS4 wil have plenty of indie titles just like PS3 has had.

    Seen this blog on the future of indie games and it's a nice read

    http://indiestatik.com/2013/02/21/th...ttle-too-late/

    wee bit of what's in it

    The relationship between the console and the indie game developer was one that practised segregation and privilege; the developer was supposed to be ‘grateful’ to have their game accepted on the console’s store, as if it were a favor and not a mutually beneficial deal. As such, developers were treated to ineffective or minimal promotion, limits and restrictions on file sizes and pricing policies, as well as extortionate costs for patches and maintaining good customer relationships. The feeling was that those managing these store fronts were being forced to bring indie games in against their will, rather than actively trying to embrace them and treat their player base to a variety of games and experiences they wouldn’t have had otherwise.

    That music is still stuck in my head. If the pricing for that game is right, I may give it a shot.

    The game has Myst written all over it, and I LOVE IT! I will definitely be getting this game just from what I have already seen!

    I loved the music, but the game was kind of meh... but they really didn't show much. I'm curious to see more.
