Episode 22 – PIG Squad’s Indie Game Adventure

AJBS, A Jumps B Shoots, PIGSquad, Portland Indie Game Squad, Chipocrite, Mechlo
In this episode we talk with Will Lewis and John Henrich, founders of the Portland Indie Game Squad, about the creation of their developer collective as well as the philosophy of what does—or does not—make a game “indie”. Whether an indie descriptor defines an actual genre, what constitutes an independent developer and the standard fifteen dollar price point are among discussion topics. (Skeletor also makes an appearance.) So, are AJBS snobs for only playing indie games? Well, maybe.

Featuring music from Chipocrite and Mechlo and the Bad Bits recorded at Micropalooza 2011
