Indie games

Independent games or as more commonly referred by players Indie games are as the name implies independent video games developed and released without support of the publisher. Though they all share that characteristic every single indie game is independent in its quality, innovation, idea and gameplay. Small teams of developers or an individual generally create a game without any support from publishers and the only restrictions they get are financial; the creative freedom allows for developers to create a unique game without creative limitations. The size of the game is usually smaller compared to the mainstream video games. Most of the time, indie games are not widely known and never reach the mainstream. The cause of that is usually the lack of media recognition or sometimes the appeal to the niche audience only. Though most of the time innovative, indie games retain some similarities to mainstream games genre-wise. With every unique little platformer you'll find a blown-out action game.
