Something is in the air, and on the vines, about each Microsoft indie.
According to Kevin Dent in about 10 days, before GDC Europe and GamesCon, Microsoft will “own the indie market”. What does this mean for Microsoft indie publishers? Is there a new game afoot?
Clearly Microsoft has the funds to buy each Indie developer out there, but they won’t. Most likely they’re going to allow them to self publish their games, like Nintendo and Sony. Hopefully they’ll have fun access to Xbox platforms and be able to sell their wares in the Xbox store.
We may get some other news, like exclusives/partnerships with some key Indie developers, including possibly with Notch. Heard anything interesting? Let us know!
