Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Molyneux: Thriving Indie Scene “Won’t Last”

Posted on Tuesday, March 25 @ 07:30:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

Peter Molyneux, the creator of iconic franchises like Fable and Black & White, is convinced that the indie scene won't be a booming part of this industry forever.

"These things go in cycles. What I'd say is, enjoy this time, because it won't last," Molyneux told CVG at this year's Game Developers Conference.

Don't think we're going to be all indies for the next five years - these things go in cycles, just like in the music business. You have a time where punk is big, and then you have times like now where everything is manufactured.

Enjoy this time, because inevitably it will only last a short period.

Molyneux then went on to explain why be believes this will be the case, adding:

Here's the thing: walk through any hotel lobby at GDC and look at people's name badges. This morning at breakfast I saw three angel investors talking to indies. They're saying, 'take my money! I want to invest in your company!'

But what those indie companies don't realize is that they'll then have to have board meetings, and in those meetings they'll be told, 'no, you shouldn't do that - look at this game that's making money'.

Do you agree with Molyneux? Will this renaissance in independent game development eventually fade into irrelevancy? Let's not forget that these comments are coming from the man who dreamed up Project Milo, and we all know how that story ended.
