Forums - Gaming Discussion - Indie developers most of them don't get notoriety no matter how successful they are? but most of us know Joseph Staten /Amy henning etc

I mean , most of the indie developers that made great games we don't know? IDK who created shovel knight , celeste , shantae etc ? but we'll always know the bigger names like Yuji Naka , Sakaguchi , Nagoshi , Hideki Naganuma , David Jaffe , Cliff Bliszinki , Joseph Staten , Amy Henning , Koji Kondo ,Sakurai

A very small percentage know Skull girls creator but like 98% of the internet don't who he is? or remember his name? I forgot his name too? also bad reputation.

I didn't put Shigeru Miyamoto because I think his notoriety is beyond everyone else's beyond my Original Post.

Although Yu Suzuki is extremely well known :) he is with Shigeru Miyamoto .

I don't know. It depends on what you call notoriety. Do indie devs get the same level of notoriety as AAA? No, not at all. But they do achieve some sort of status. Take for instance Phil Fish, Edmond McMillion or Markus Persson. Most gamers know who they are. Same with Johnathon Blow. The biggest indie titles, especially when developed by one or two people, usually bring the creator's names with them because it's pretty remarkable when one or two people make something that goes on to be that successful.

But again, if you're wondering why they don't achieve AAA status, well... it's because they're not AAA games. Less people play them, so less people care.

Well Minecraft is the best selling game of all time so of course gamers are going to know who notch is.

Is it? I didn't know that. Doesn't surprise me though. It's sort of the quintessential ever-green title to end all ever-green titles. I can totally picture three or four generations of gamers playing that game.



Well you know what is even more incredible is that when these legendary names open their indie companies they are left on a forgotten realm

Eric Barone, he made Stardew Valley.
But maybe most people know him as Concerned Ape.

I don't know half the people in the OP.

We do?

I know Ron Gilbert, Ken & Roberta Williams, Tim Schafer, Charles Cecil, Al Lowe, Jane Jensen, Dave Gilbert, Scott Murphy, Mark Crowe, Dave Grossman, Chris Jones, Jan Mülller-Michaelis... everyone has his own bubble.

Of course I also know some of the bigger names like Sid Meier, Hideo Kojima and Chris Roberts who can put their names on the game boxes or in the title.
