Itch.io Confidence: 90% Arrow up

itch.io is a website for users to host, sell and download indie video games.

Released in March 2013 by Leaf Corcoran, the service hosts nearly 40,000 games and items as of July 2016.

Indie game Confidence: 74% Arrow up

An independent video game (commonly referred to as an indie game) is a video game that is created without the financial support of a publisher.

Indie games often focus on innovation and rely on digital distribution.

Indie gaming saw a rise in the latter half of the 2000s, primarily due to new online distribution methods and development tools.

Some indie games have been very successful financially, such as Braid, World of Goo, Flow, and Minecraft.

Video game development Confidence: 68% Arrow up

Video game development is the process of creating a video game.

Development is undertaken by a game developer, which may range from one person to a large business.

Traditional commercial PC and console games are normally funded by a publisher and take several years to develop.

Indie games can take less time and can be produced cheaply by individuals and small developers.

The indie game industry has seen a rise in recent years with the growth of new online distribution systems and the mobile game market.
