Jeff Vogel on innovation in indie games at RPGVault

RPG Vault has an interesting but short editorial by Jeff Vogel of Spiderweb Software fame about the realities of indie development.
Whenever I read one of these articles, I usually find that the writer presents one ray of hope, one bold knight who will struggle to invent the new genres that will totally rock us - the Indie Game Developer.

Well, speaking as an Indie Game Developer, I have this to say... Don't look at us, man.

Supposedly, as I understand it, we are free. e don't have The Man keeping us down and rejecting our ideas and forcing us to spend 80 hours a week programming the new shading engine for Doom 4. We got nothin' to lose, so we can just be creative.

Sure.
Vogel makes some alarmingly good points about innovation in gaming. Go read it.
