Dr. Geek: The Importance of Community to the Indie Games Uprising

It is interesting but not at all surprising that online gaming events like Uprising are generated in part because of the online community of people involved in XBLIG. As both Michael and Dave have described, after the first Uprising began as a cross-promotion event for Zeboyd Games and MagicalTimeBean, Uprisings II and III have been a result of XBLIG developers utilizing community message boards at App Hub (Microsoft’s XBLIG forums) to find like-minded individuals who would be interested in organizing a new Uprising, thereby propagating and maintaining the idea of the original.
