The Mobile Movement: How The Indie Revolution is Changing the Industry

From GamesReviews:

"At some point over the last six or seven years, the gaming world completely changed. The omnipotent power of the big publishers started to wane and, thanks to more open platforms like Steam, Android and the App Store on iDevices, smaller developers could release a game and have it sell hundreds of thousands, if not millions of copies. Perhaps the biggest indicator of this shift in recent weeks was at the BAFTAs. Indie games took home almost every single prize, the most surprising of which was when industry mega-sellers like Forza and FIFA lost out in the sports section to New Star Soccer.

"At a time when many core games are looking for a different sort of experience, there are people in the industry trying to fill that niche. What will it mean in the long run? How are things going to change? We thought we’d try to answer these questions, and we invited the BAFTA-winning creator of New Star Soccer, Simon Read, to give us his thoughts as well."
