The ever-expanding influence and new ideas that have been brought about by the indie gaming scene is “fascinating,” according to Quantic Dream founder David Cage.
Indie is amazing. Glad to hear it coming from cage!
It has possibly been the shining light of the industry lately, we have had some cracking AAA games but we also had a lot of half arsed crap from lazy ports to poor optimization to shameless pay to win micro-transactions and season passes.
the aaa market is way too marketed and not enough new ideas. it's also burdened with broken games that need day one patches, dlc and season passes. i do however hope the fad for 8bit graphics goes away on the indie scene.
David Cage just seems like a decent guy overall, and he creates some pretty impressive titles. Glad to see that he supports the "little guys".
Indies are awesome. :)
David cage finds any kind of actual game fascinating because he has never made one. He finds good writing and narrative fascinating for the same reason.
You must not have played Omikron Nomad Soul on PC or Dreamcast. On topic: love the indie scene and their risk taking without the control of big publishers like EA.
Kind of a silly statement to make. Just because his games are not conventional doesn't mean that they are not good.
Which of his games have you played?
I've played some awesome indie games the last couple of years: - Her Story: not much of a game, but what a experience. - Cave Story: a wonderful metroid game - The escapists - The Shadowrun games - Super meatball - Everybody's is gone to the rapture: it feels like one of the good old days graphic adventures. So Goooood! Right now I'm playing age of decadence... and is good, is just SO freaking hard. This days you can only find originality on indies, that's a fact. So yeah Fascinating
indie studios are bringing some really fresh unique experiences into an industry where huge publishers won't take much risk
