With American Independence day just around the corner… Lowkey Gaming is going to be reviewing an Indie game every day until Independence day.

For those of you who don’t know an Indie game is a game that is produced with out the financial support of a video game publisher. With out having a video game publisher to answer to, indie game developers have much more creative freedom.

The gaming industry has been evolving to make Indie game development more and more attainable. Services like steams Green Light, where members of steam vote on weather or not an Indie Game should be added to the Steam store, have made the indie landscape more viable then ever.

There are also freeware video game engines. These programs make game development attainable to anyone who has the time and dedication to put in to learn the program. A few notable examples of freeware game development software include:

Unity – Game Engine

Stencyl

GameSalad

Along with these programs there are many free and paid tutorials online. Stay tuned for this weeks indie game reviews!
