From Pixels to Play: Opportunities and Challenges of a Diverse and Democratized Games Industry

Sebastian Long, Alena Denisova, Pejman Mirza-Babaei

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

In the past decade, smaller video game development teams have defied the odds to create novel and commercially successful games without the financial and technical support of larger parent companies, publishers, or benefactors. These fiercely independent studios sustain total creative control over their own outputs, building their own unique ideas and eschewing the financial, legal, IP, or creative constraints.
