Star Citizen will be that game
Resogun is amazing No mans sky has the hype of a AAA
Did devs who left AAA companies create them?
Among few other games, Chris Roberts' SC is my biggest hope for gaming. If this thing succeeds, I hope the gaming world realizes with how little it has learned to be satisfied with.
Aint that the truth
A game that big needs to succeed though, if it doesn't it'll be a real knock for crowd funded indie titles.
Star Citizen looks to be a great game, hopefully it is the one that breaks the mold!
What I love about indie games is you get what you pay for/download. AAA Titles love their DLC's waaaaay too much. I guess there are still DLC's for smaller indie games but they're no where near as expensive.
Chris Roberts from Star Citizen will do that, definately.
Outlast? The guys who worked on that moved from AAA to indie...
Oh yeh very good point!
Thanks, will update!
Outlast was defs a success and a fantastic game, but aimed at a niche genre which means it success was soon forgotten. I look forward to their next project.
George Kamitami? I mean, VanillaWare is almost indie, right? It's been formed by ex-Capcom / Atlus team members. They're a small team with great ambition, and most of their games are exceptional. Sure, they get a lot of help from Atlus (which is still a niche publisher / developper), but they're nowhere as big as EA or Ubisoft or even Square-Enix. Maybe not indie, but certainly not a big blockbuster AAA dudebro studio...
Interesting, niche seems to be the place to be at for Indie / non-AAA.
Good point, they are defiantely not big AAA, another great example. Thank you for your response.
Square Enix still tries to be different, so that's cool. EA and Ubi have a way of sticking to a formula too often.
pity that - it should be the other way around - but i guess with a massive AAA title the funds get distributed to hundreds of folks with a salary. with an indie title, the small team reap huge rewards.
