The International Indie Games Day is the brain child of The Indie Game Magazine and serves no other purpose than to give people an excuse to enjoy Indie Games and Indie Gaming.
What are Indie Games?
Indie Games are video games which are made by passionate game developers who typically publish their game on their own via the internet. Indie Games are typical not funded nor published under major labels and therefore the developers are not limited in their scope of creativity. Indie Games will typically stretch the boundaries of what has been done already and sometimes even what is commonly accepted as normal practice. The one thing that they all have in common is the level of passion poured into the game by their developer, as these games are made out of a desire to make a game rather than making money.
You are the centerpiece of this holiday. Without you celebrating, it is nothing. So do just that. Grab a copy of your favorite indie, or pick up a new indie that you have been thinking about trying out. Have some friends over for some LAN action, or join an online match. The possibilities are endless!
