The plight of experimental indies | Podcast

Latest episode available to download now, discusses Moonrise Fund and other efforts to lower the barrier for indies

On this week's podcast, the GamesIndustry.biz editorial team takes a look at some of the biggest challenges facing indie developers.

Our discussion begins with the recent reveal of Moonrise Fund, which focuses on financing teams working on gameplay that hasn't been seen before. We recently spoke to the fund's creator Evva Karr about their ambitions for the project.

We then talk about the gaps in funding and even gaps in knowledge that form barriers to experimental games developers from bringing more unorthodox projects to market.

We also touch on the hurdles indies face when trying to market their game or secure press and media coverage ahead of release.
