Wait, There’s An Indie Game Anthem?
Since it’s a Friday, why don’t we take a seat, put our feet up and relax. With all this serious talk about indie game developers, ethics and journalistic integrity perhaps we need some lighthearted humour to make this Friday all the more bearable.
After watching a couple of YouTube videos, I came across this hilarious indie game related anthem of sorts, that sums up much of the indie game scene at the moment. Whilst there is a lot to laugh at here, I do find that there is a great deal of truth presented in the video.
Although some of it may be generalisations, we all know the joy of Steam sales, the plethora of indie games available, and the consistent retro-fying trend that is vogue in indie game design at the moment. Also the parody of a classic Macklemore track is hilarious in its own right, and slightly overdone. But it’s a good effort nonetheless.
Anyway, we need more videos like this. Maybe someone will produce an ode to Phil Fish or a lyrical interpretive dance of Zoe Quinn’s “Quinnspiracy”. We could probably have some comedy gold in the making, or not. Give the video a watch, and leave your thoughts in the comments below if you have any amazing ideas.
