This Month On Edge

EDGE - - SECTIONS -

The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E293

When we weren’t do­ing every­thing else, we were think­ing about stuff like this

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.
