In my talk I tried to highlight that indie phenomenon has always existed , from independent studies of the 80s. I wanted to tell the little story of creative freedom studies , which are not new , they have existed since 8 bits era.

I ended up giving a few tips for developers who plan to embark on independent game creation , I focused mainly on the importance of marketing , PR and added development costs that are not taken into account , especially when you are developing for consoles , such as translations, payments to different age rating agencies, development kits, etc.
