Gaming Illustrated: "'Indie' has recently been added to the unwritten list of the rudest words in video games, as the term usually refers to a low budget title with the sort of graphics that even a mid-1990s PC could run. The term is synonymous with audio that probably doesn’t involve the London Philharmonic Orchestra (and those guys will play just about anything for cash) or composer John Williams.
What you will find, though, is a central quirky game mechanic, which plays with the tropes of the genre. The artwork is usually low-fi, or even deliberately evocative of early Amiga era pixel-art. It seems unnecessary to point out, but this may be because the small team of barely paid enthusiasts who made the game are not backed by a studio with tons of cash."
