GP: "Indie game developers do what others won't. While the less-than-giant-but-still-pret ty-big companies such as Atlus release games like Catherine, they are met with much interest.

Despite this void in the market for truly 'different' games though it seems we only get them rarely. At least, that used to be the case.
Indie developers have been around as long as gaming has but only now are they finally getting some degree of serious attention.
