PBS Publishes Documentary About the “Creativity of Indie Video Games”
Not since the release of this summer’s Indie Game: The Movie have we seen a quality documentary covering the indie game development scene… until now. PBS has recently published a brief mini-documentary on the “Creativity of Indie Video Games” in their “Off Book” YouTube series. If you’re into that sort of thing, give it a click above. If you’re not, you should be.
Citing the fact that the video game industry is “now bigger than Hollywood,” the video showcases some of the past few years’ shining success stories from the indie community, namely notables like Bastion, Minecraft, Limbo, Terraria, Super Meat Boy, Braid and Cave Story.
Man, quite a few of those are about mining. If we as gamers are so compelled to play games about mining, why aren’t more of us coal miners? Shouldn’t that market be exploding with job inquiries by now?
Maybe it is and I just haven’t done my market research properly… or, you know, at all. Whatever, just watch the video.
