The Increase in Indie Video Game Developers

The video gaming industry is bound to change, and the number of new games on the market are a sign of how diversity is taking an impact. Some of the

top videos games on the market today are not mainstream games. There is a surge in the number of indie developers that are trying to break into the industry. That is why the video games that have topped the charts in 2016 are not the same games that have been at the top in the past.

 

The reason that this has happened has much to do with the freedom of open source code and the alternate underground work in video game development. This indie presence is seen in all aspects of the gaming industry. People can see this with Apple vs. Androids. They can see this with the Microsoft Xbox games vs. the Nintendo games. There are a ton of people that are able to see the differences in the war games like War of World or NBA Live. In the past it has been games like this that have gotten to the top, but it is the surge in the indie games that makes people see things differently.

 

The thing that a lot of people are looking at is the first person shooter games. Super Hot, for example, has been rated as one of the top games for people that like the first person shooter games. Any people that like games with alien themes will see that No Man’s Sky is a great game with spectacular visuals. It is good to have this type of strong gaming presence from indie developers that have a different perspective.

 

Pokemon Go is game that has managed to become the catalyst for more future Pokemon Go games. This is one of the mainstream games that few people may have considered as a blockbuster in 2016 before it was released. Millions of people downloaded this as it became the game that was an obsession for lots of millennials. This is the game that shows that there is a transition from expensive video games to free smart device games. This will leave more room for the indie developers to come along and develop free games for cell phone users.
