Watch this: PBS 'Off Book' on why indie games are important

New, 9 comments

We're big fans of PBS Off Book, and the webseries' latest episode does nothing to change that. The Creativity of Indie Video Games looks at the processes involved in indie game development, contrasting them with big-budget projects motivated by turning huge profits.

The developers interviewed argue that, free from the shackles of corporate responsibility, indie games are able to push the boundaries of storytelling, game mechanics, design, and audio. With insight from the developers of Bastion, Spelltower, and Osmos, it's well worth checking out.
