Jeff Vogel Examines Innovation In Games
6:51 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In the second installment of his continuing View From The Bottom series, Spiderweb Software's Jeff Vogel tackles the issue of innovation in gaming. While many claim independent developers are the last hope for truly unique gaming experiences, Vogel suggests gamers should look toward larger game companies for those rare examples of true innovation.

Whenever I read one of these articles, I usually find that the writer presents one ray of hope, one bold knight who will struggle to invent the new genres that will totally rock us - the Indie Game Developer.

Well, speaking as an Indie Game Developer, I have this to say... Don't look at us, man.

Supposedly, as I understand it, we are free. We don't have The Man keeping us down and rejecting our ideas and forcing us to spend 80 hours a week programming the new shading engine for Doom 4. We got nothin' to lose, so we can just be creative.
