It's about time to get the ball rolling!

      Hey there everyone! So glad to be a part of a brand new community with you all! I'm relatively new to the site, and the first time I saw anything about ember was on twitter several months ago. I decided to jump in and check it out for myself, and I really believe in the vision of the site. 

      I'm an avid gamer, like most of you I assume, but I focus mainly on indie titles. I love the process and development of games, so I decided to create a channel dedicated to supporting indie devs. Ember is in that vein, so what better way to showcase news than on that of an indie site!? A lot of what I post will be short and sweet, but sometimes that's all we need. Now I don't have a particular format, or even schedule to go by as I am fairly busy with family, work, and other hobbies, but I assure you I will make time to throw up a blog or two every once in a while. Again the focus will be strictly on indie games/development. 

      Why indie? Great question. Indie games just feel more genuine to me. I see a lot of passion and expression from indie developers toward the vision of their game. Even when times are tough, most developers stick it out to the end, and I respect that. Typically, I notice a lot of these indie developers involving the community into the actual development of their game, too. With AAA games, I see decisions based on whether or not they can produce more income, and it backfires almost instantaneously. Whenever I play an indie title, the experience I have and the little details I notice in each game tend to stick out to me even more than a AAA title. Not to mention, there isn't a lot of controversy in the indie game community comparatively to AAA communities.

      With all of this said, I am looking forward to the many great conversations ahead. It's been a while since I've written anything of this length, so bear with me as I find my comfort zone. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, and can't wait to share some indie game news with you!!

Agreed. Indie titles tend to give more, be it in gameplay, story or design. It doesn't matter if the game costs one euro or more. There always seem to be some value in return for your money spent.

For sure! I've rarely had a problem with indie games, and never felt like they were ever trying to develop the game just for money. Nice to know there are good people out there just trying to share a vision and to broaden our imagination.
