"The indie game scene has been burgeoning in western culture for quite some time now. Virtually everyone, in the west at least, is familiar with titles like Fez, Limbo, Bastion, Minecraft, and Braid. The eastern indie scene, however, has felt conspicuously absent as western developers have made a name for themselves.
