Thanks! The indie life is not an easy path, which make it doubly rewarding when we manage to entertain people. I Wrote a small text the other day on our blog to illustrate this:
''We think that videos games is definitely not only about visuals. It's not only about iterating the same recipe over and over because it is more secure financially. It's not only about making games easier and easier in a casual reach for numbers. It's not only about metrics and behaviour analysis. It's not only about making free-game-with-paywall. Sometimes, it's about going back to the roots: making fun, simple, challenging and fresh experiences. Without this kind of spirit, the video games industry would have never emerged and it would not be able to renew itself when it needs to. We are XperimentalZ Games and we salute all indies living their passion as well as their supporters, keeping the soul of video games alive.''
The point is not that any of this is necessarily wrong, but that there should not be 'norms'. When I see some of the amazing 'outside-the-box' but fun stuff that indies make these days, I'm happy
