Is There Even Such a Thing as an “Indie Game” Anymore?

I don't know. Ask indie movies... if you can figure out what they are anymore.

Just where is the line between a big studio title and an “indie game” anymore? Game distribution is undergoing a massive shift, and it’s making the difference between indie games and those from big publishers a little hard to discern. That won’t stop Game/Show from trying, though.
