Dreadout: Why not more indie games for PSN too? Why just PC?

cmon, tell them to put it on PSN. You're usually good for nothing here do something for once

I think most indy games are overhyped just for being indy. Xbox, pc and smartphones are filled with alot of indy shovelware already.

I would imagine it's much easier to code, build, test, debug, and distribute indy games on an open platfrom like a pc than it is to for consoles. Since the dev probably doesn't have a ton of money it makes sense to build the game where it is cheapest and easiest.

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

The game demo has no controller support. That's a pain in the ass already. It should be on PSN a well as the next Dreamfall game (and the original one).
Also that other adventure game I cant remember the name of it atm where there's a girl sneaking around wearing a black hoodie..

Steam Greenlight


Is such a piece of crap.


Steam doesn't even check if the games even work or are of the quality promised.

Still better for indie developers than MS and Sony's options.

Hi.

Even if Steam Greenlight is crap, they don't take nearly as much of a cut as MS and Sony do for hosting the games. That's one of the biggest reasons. MS and Sony have basically choked the console indie sales.

You should just get them for your phone or PC, then. You can even get some DRM free ones sometimes from bundles and GoG is DRM free (though not as many to choose from)
