Indie Houses

The Indie Houses Direct just finished airing, bringing together seven different indie publishers (Akupara Games, Fellow Traveller, Neon Doctrine, Raw Fury, Those Awesome Guys, Toge Productions, and Whitethorn Games) to share their bounty of game news over the course of an hour.

"When indie games succeed, video games succeed," said Sarah Johanna of Toge Productions, and the message was echoed by the other studios, as the Direct intended to bring greater discoverability to their stable of indies by combining their might as publishers.
