What about the Indie community?

Indie gaming community.

What are those?

Indie games are a smaller community that supports independent game developers in the making. Most of the people involve are also without financial help from people. Most indie game development rely on the community and also third party gaming software such as (Steam, Humble Bundle etc etc) Games such as Minecraft started from a small team of people but because of it’s rising success, Minecraft was purchased by Microsoft for $2.5 Billion people. (http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-09-15-microsoft-buys-mojang-and-minecraft)

This gives in to the new waves of Indie developers to create new games, such as “Binding of Isaac” or games such as “Amnesia” a pathway to not only rival big budget games but also games that the community would want to play.

In conclusion, Indie games has a small but strong support. Either because they love the quirky and simple games or just because they believe in the project, and i feel that being the gaming community helps us to not only help rising local artist but also knowing that you are supporting a independent company, maybe it’s time for us to support some independent games?

Why do we game with a community?

This is a pretty broad question.
Why do we game? and what good comes about with playing with friends?
Over here in ‘Let’s Talk About Games’ it’s hard to find information regarding gaming community and why it can be more fun but all those information are meant to be from experiences and from players itself rather than studies.

Games has always started out as a 2 player game, from the famous ‘pong’ to Destiny’s fire team, Game developers has always encourage people to find time and play with friends.

Though at some point in time, we all went through the stage where we just play alone in our room and just play alone. Not that i am saying it’s wrong, but to me games are boring alone.

Remember when we were kids, when one of our friends would get the latest game and we all would rush to their house and join along the fun even though we all don’t get the controller?

‘Let’s Talk About Games’ aims to bring back that fun memories of playing with friends.

For the next few weeks, i’m going to write about the games that not only you and friends can play but also think about joining the world community at the same time!

Here are some of the games i’ll talk about give it a watch! 😉

so what are you waiting for? pick up a controller and game on!
