Sony's gamescom. Which games are actually indies?

#1 Posted by iHave2Fart (47 posts) -

What Sony showed:

WiLD, Until Dawn, Tearaway, Alienation, Silent Hill, The Tomorrow Children, Hellblade, Hollowpoint, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and In Space We Brawl. (Did I miss anything...?)

Now, by the looks of WiLD, Until Dawn, Silent Hill, and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, those games are not 'indies.' Am I right? I may just be looking in the wrong place, but those games are not classified as indies from what I'm seeing so far. They look too... retail-ish to be indies... if that makes sense. And nobody seems to be referring to them as 'indies.'

Thoughts?

Who the f**k actually cares? just play the games and enjoy them.

Who cares who makes the games...

This is the most pointless topic EVER.

Independent video games (commonly referred to as indie games) are video games created by individuals or small teams generally without video game publisher financial support. The look of the game has nothing to do with being an indie game. I'm not sure which of those games are indie or not but I believe the following are classed as indie:

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Hollowpoint
In Space We Brawl
WiLD
The Tomorrow Children
Alienation

NOT INDIE
Silent Hill
Hellblade
Tearaway
Until Dawn

I'm can confirm that Wild is and indie game and it sounds like Hellblade is too.

@iHave2Fart: Silent Hill is not indie. Look into that franchise again, that's all I will say.

I'm interested in WiLD. It's a good question asking which are indie because most indie games don't get a physical release and I prefer having my games on disc.
