Independent games are like those weird after-hours parties held in vast, empty warehouses where anything that can happen, does. As the costs and risks of creating AAA-games such as Call of Duty, Destiny or Halo rise, more developers have stepped to the side and now attempt to build innovative, wild games on their own or in small teams. There are thousands of independent developers in the industry, and collected here are 21 studios that stand out for their uniqueness, business savvy and high-quality work.
Be sure to keep these names and games up your sleeve for the next time you find yourself surrounded by strangers in a big, bumpin’ warehouse.
