"The beauty of Indie is that we can shape the company into whatever we like"
Why did I immediately thought: World Domination?
I'm inspired by a burning passion for computer games, and the wishful thinking that perhaps someday, the only wars raging would be the ones played in the virtual world of video games were the only thing in risk is your ego.
Beyond that I'm simply a computer tech, sys admin and basic programmer, that again, like to play computer games a lot. But enough about me, let's talk about what you are doing.
It is simply great to have the opportunity of witnessing the rise of your indie studio, specially with a game of this quality (based on what I can appreciate so far). I know great things await for you if the studio remain constant on your honesty and quality, something very refreshing on the software industry of this age.
On the last point I cannot stress enough how refreshing it is. The current state of the gaming software industry call for a change. Games aren't being developed with fun in mind, instead, an increasingly number of them are being designed from scratch with money making as their primary function.
The gaming industry has fall victim of it's own success. As it keep increasing in monetary value, it inevitability attracted big sharks that saw it's potential in video games as money making machines and thus, set a race to abuse this in the worst ways imaginable. People have forgotten in the way that if a game has really good quality and is meant to be fun to play, then with a little diligence and a small dash of luck, money will flow on it's own to it.
On other words, you don't need to fool people, you just need to be competent. But enough with crazy old rants (not that old, I'm just 27).
Godspeed guys, I know you'll accomplish many great things.
