New Indie-centric Escapist Issue

A new Tuesday means a new issue of the Escapist, and this issue is focused on indie game developers:

This week, The Escapist celebrates these sweet potato moments in our beloved industry. We go looking off the beaten path, in the rough and out in left field for the people “Going It Alone.” In this issue, we explore the wild and crazy world of the indie game developer. Enjoy!

I haven’t read all of the articles yet, but I saw that Jay Barnson of Rampant Coyote wrote about quite a few other indies in Going Rogue.

How could anybody abandon the steady paychecks, access to the best tools and engines, large teams of skilled colleagues and the glory of working on one of next holiday season’s blockbusters for a chance to labor in relative obscurity on tiny, niche titles?
