The recent proliferation of gaming download services has offered small-scale developers a vital route to market, with low-costs, low-risks and easy distribution of product.
However, while the likes of Apple's iPhone App Store and Google's Android Marketplace boast massive catalogues of indie titles, Nintendo's fledgling DSiWare service has - by and large - been dominated by large publishers thus far.
This could be set to change. With the likes of Alien Havoc, Mecho Wars and Pop Island on the horizon, it would seem that smaller studios are finally finding their feet with Nintendo's latest distribution platform.
Another indie title that has recently been announced is Flipper, courtesy of Goodbye Galaxy Games. Pocket Gamer got in touch with founder (and sole staff member) Hugo Smits and quizzed him about this upcoming title.
