While the Big Publishers Snooze, Little Indie Studios Are Changing the Face of Wii U

NE:

An exclusive preview of three upcoming indie games on Wii U, an editorial on indie studios vs big publishers, and an interview with Maestro Games. This article tries on a lot for size. (Wii U)

i agree, with games like little infurno, indie games can be creative as they without worrying about the big suits who try to dumb down games just for a sale. the wii u is definitely the place for indie developers, with more and more major third parties, going the thq way, indie gaming may be the next gen in gaming, and the wii u with a year head start is already the next gen system to own!

And if Nintendo can get lots of great indie games coming out in between their big first-party releases, I'd be pretty happy. I'd be much happier if there were actual big third-party games also coming. But this would lighten the blow.

Good to see Nintendo finally did right by the Indies,
-I think that they always intended to but they messed it up due to a host of different factors.

I hope that the Indie who is redoing the Baldur's Gates reconsiders giving the WiiU a version.

I also want the Foosball Game (seen in the N. Direct last month) it was pretty Genius.

Also indie devs dont need a publisher to put a game on the Wii U eShop and dont need to pay for updates.

And with nintendo's new policy they don't even need to have a public office. Wii u is gonna be like the dreamcast, with inovative thoughtful games because of the indies, except it will be successful.

These indie devs will become bigger than the big boys if they keep up the amazing games,it also makes big publishers take note,eshop is easily the best digital platform for quality games besides STEAM.

Indie is huge for the big 3....whoever supports better has a huge advantage, but I can see dev's suporting all 3 consoles for the next 5-10 years.

They are all focusing on wiiu and the digital sales are very good on eshop it's got a name for quality.
