Indie is the commonly used collective term for computer games that are created by independent, usually quite small developing teams or even individual programmers. Therefore, Indie stand in contrast with AAA titles by large publishers and game producers, similar to the difference between independent films and huge Hollywood blockbusters. The development of such games takes place with lower manpower and financial means, but often with a lot of passion for the medium computer games.
While big budget productions today often rely on consistent, proved gameplay and appealing graphics, most Indie stand out with innovations of many different sorts. New gameplay ideas, creative design or the revival of popular classic elements and genres characterize the concept of „Indie“. The most well-known example is the huge worldwide success of Minecraft.
