The Indie Game Website: "The number of indie platformers appearing is growing with each year that passes. But how many of those are new, memorable experiences or artistic creations?"
You can never have enough
Barely any of the AAA developers support it anymore, so the more the merrier. I'd rather have a lot of platformers than a lot of shooters/grindfests.
on one hand its like the NES & SNES days never went away, but on the other hand you're an idie dev, do something different, dont just rely on whats the safest thing to do. I was under the impression that being indie was doing what triple A no longer wanted to go back to, so its a bit disappointing to see most just fall back on to platformers
Not on Switch
Nope. It’s timeless. I think it’s just a lot harder to make a good one that stands out from the saturation. Dead cells did great because it’s a solid formula.
