Shahid Ahmad is still on an indie game supporting rampage. In this clip from EGX, Shahid outlines how Sony is working to be the most indie-friendly platform and how the video games industry is evolving.
There are a ton of relevant points throughout the half-hour presentation, but if you’re short on time and need a TLDR list, check it out:
Honeyslug (Hohokum, Super Exploding Zoo) Abstraction/Dennoton/Devolver (Hotline Miami 1 and 2) Futurlab (Velocity Ultra, Velocity 2X) Mike Bithell (Volume) Atomicon (Switch Galaxy Ultra) Teknopants/Maxistentialism (Samurai Gunn) Chucklefish (Starbound) Cellar Door Games (Rogue Legacy) Vlambeer (Wasteland Kings)
I am buying a PS4 because I know about all of the indie developers in kahoots with Sony. I am spreading the word as much as possible, but I still know people who have no idea who Futurlab or Honeyslug are, let alone what a Super Crate Box might contain.
What are the indie games you are looking forward to on the PS4/Vita? How will you spread the word? How long until Coconut Dodge 2X HD Remix sells $1 Billion? Also, if you’re reading, Futurlab, someone please make a platformer in the CD universe.
