Blog Status Update: Going Indie

I have not posted any gaming related articles for quite a long time, so I decided to concentrate on that topic for the next week or so.

I bought a bunch of indie gaming packs on Steam a few days ago during their Black Friday sales and thought it would be interesting to blog a bit about indie games. Not many of my friends (even the gamers) know much about Jonathan Blow, Jenova Chen or Ian Bogost. It's these people that drive the industry forward, bringing new ideas to the table and challenging our perception of games as more than just hobbies or past times. Some might laugh at the idea of games as art, but some indie developers are dedicated to finding that link between games and art. A lofty goal indeed.
