Nintendo opens a website for indie games

by: Sean Colleli -

As if it wasn't clear enough already that Nintendo was serious about courting indie developers, the big N has set up a page of their website dedicated to indie titles. The revamped site covers all of the indie games you can get on both the Wii U and 3DS eShop. There are already a lot of great choices on show there, including classics like Cave Story, and newcomers like Steamworld Dig and Moon Chronicles.

Nintendo's mantra for the last few years has been bigger ideas, not bigger budgets, and it's nice to see them put their money where their mouth is. I've been losing interest in the AAA industry for quite a while now as the indie scene is where the really cool stuff is happening, so hopefully we'll see some of that show up on Nintendo platforms. Wouldn't it be wild to get No Man's Sky on the Wii U?
