No special award for ICO, Shadow of the Colossus or The Last Guardian. That's a shame.

How is Unravel 2 an indie? It's published by EA after all. I'm surprised that Nier Automata sold more than DMC5.


shikamaru317 (4 days ago)

It's published by EA, but developed by an indie studio under that EA indie studio promotion imitative.

If EA is behind the game, it's not indie. By definition indie means independent developer, which this is not.

Its made by a Indy studio, being published has nothing to do with the game aside from marketing etc and considering the games marketing is pretty low, its a indy budgeted game.

@Azzanation Doesn't matter what the budget is. If it has a publisher behind it the game is not indie. Again - indie comes from independent developer, which this game is not.

The developer is independent.. they basically hired a publisher to publish there game. If they were owned by EA than i see your point but i dont think they are. Correct me if i am wrong.

@Azzanation OK. Then by that logic all second party games like Detroit Become Human are also indies since they are made by independent developer. I'd say that they are not since they have a big publisher behind them.

Independent developer have nothing to do with self-publishing or using a major publisher.
I may be wrong but at a time Xbox was demanding that all Indie games to be published needed a publisher. So under your definition no Indie had been released there, which is completely false.
If the developer is independent AND small they are Indie... because let me tell you that Insomniac was independent and no one would say Spider-Man is an Indie game.

So Azz is completely right. Game have small budget, made by a small studio that doesn't belong to a publisher... they are by definition an Indie.

Will give you another example. There are some Indie labels (they are publishers) that work only with Indie musicians. Because believe or not even Indies need to be published to be seem.

@DonFerrari If you make a contract with a publisher you are no longer independent, are you? The publisher may have final say on business practices and even in-game content. I'm perfectly fine declaring non-self published games as non-indie.

"let me tell you that Insomniac was independent and no one would say Spider-Man is an Indie game" - because Sony published it. If any big publisher was behind a project then it's not an independent project, is it?

Something like Hellblade is a true indie game since Ninja Theory self published it and it's a AA game.

To address your last example - the moment you have a contract with a label, you are no longer an independent musician. The key in all these cases is the word "independent".

You are still independent because that game was signed to be published by EA, it doesn't belong to EA nor the dev. Their next game could go anywhere.

@DonFerrari The developer may be independent, but the game is not since it has a publisher behind it. Simple as that. If Sony hires Quantic Dream to do another exclusive the game will not be indie.

QD have been "bought" by a publisher, but before that none of their games on the last 10 years would be considered indie.


  • 0
Zenos (3 days ago)

@DonFerrari Because virtually all of their games had a publisher. One could argue that their recent PC releases are indie since they self-published them, but still.
