Anyway, big Up's to those who pursue such an undertaking. Indie games are hard to make. The bad ones are just the beginning to a better beginning. Keep up the good work.

I really love some indie games but I've got to say that the great majority are just poorly made games using the word indie to hide their incompetence.

@pctyThere was a time in my life that I made games just for fun. I can understand the hard work one has to put into something just to make a simple idea to work, even if it ends up being something not that good.


Of course, one can criticise Indie games for many not being that good. But one can also criticise big games for mostly relying on 10 years old, or more, formulas.

@pcty indie games aren't really a genre but just games developed by a small team, its usually young people who are just learning. I agree that most indies are the way they are but I don't see that as a bad thing, just means there needs to be better systems in place for wading..like steams greenlight

@phbz The topic is is indie games why I would mention big games I'm not comparing them.

As I said before I'm not a developer I'm a consumer the hardwork or development process doesn't interest me. I'll buy games that I considere worth buying.

@obsequies Why are you saying that? I never said that indie is genre.

@SiniStar121 It doesn't change the fact that is a bad game.

@obsequies I already do my research before buying anything although I never took reviews into consideration.

@pcty you should probably read reviews and look into the games before you buy them

@borkkmor00 I don't care if it is their first game or not if a game is bad it is just bad the circumstances of the devlopment doesn't interest me as consumer.

I won't buy a bad car just because that the company that makes it is new.

@pcty Edmund McMillen made 20 shitty games (admitted himself) before making the phenomenon that is Super Meat Boy.

There is no way your first game will be a super hit.

I don't know what you work in buddy but if you consider yourself good at it now think about how bad you were at it when you first started.

You gotta to fail first and use that as the foundation for your next success.

Stop being a prick.
