BOOK Indie Games: The Complete Introduction To Indie Gaming www.bit.ly/indiediver
Vice videogames editor Mike Diver moved into game journalism from a career championing new music for Drowned In Sound. He continues to back the underdog in his first book, which looks at the tumultuous indie development scene. This isn’t an industry text, but rather a finely presented compendium of games aimed at people who might not have heard of them. Diver tackles the evolution of the industry, digital marketplaces and mobile, as well as examining broader topics such as horror, emotional empathy and space through an indie-centric lens, along the way speaking to indie luminaries including Sean Murray, Tim Schafer and David Braben.
