You mean, what are indie game developers? I agree with the definition that currently appears on Wikipedia:

Quote
Independent video games (commonly referred to as indie games) are video games created by individuals or small teams without video game publisher financial support. Indie games often focus on innovation and rely on digital distribution. Indie gaming has seen a rise in the last years, primarily due to new online distribution methods and development tools.

Do you presently make games? If so, I'd be interested to see an Indie Bug production.

Right now, no. I know nothing of programming. I'm hoping to learn sometime in the near future. Maybe if Craig ever comes out with his book?

However many pages it takes to contain all the things I want in it. How many that will be, it's impossible to say. I'm well more than halfway done with it, though.

I'm a freelance game artist, so far I only work with DD, but with time I'll get more business, not to mention a salary.

I'll pay you as soon as I require your art, and I've made some money with my games.

... that could take a while.

ahh, until then what was that site you mentioned?

Edit- I remembered it, They don't hook artists up with developers, possibly because the logistics would be difficult for long disttance partnerships, especially because I have almost no means of travel. ahh, se la vi.

I didn't realize we had quite a few game devs. I say what games have you made and by you I mean the both of you. This changes my pov.

He hasn't made any games, and I haven't made any good enough to be published. Go to Game Development section >> Maelstrom the Game to see my game.

I've been searching for a partnership, but I'm not a programmer. I'm an artist. I'm still "working" on my portfolio and by working I mean putting it off.
