More Indie Bubble Popping Goodness

This one from Cliffski, and I find his opinion is pretty much the same as mine:

Will the indie games market crash and burn?

Short answer: Yes, depending on your definition.

Longer answer (my interpretation):  It’ll be the game developers crashing and burning, not so much the market.

Solution: Go for your dreams, but don’t be stupid about it.

It’s the same story. The gold rush has been going full force, and sooner or later the music will stop. We have way many more players than we have chairs already.

    I see it working more as a “boom and bust”. There will be a readjustment as the gold rush ends, but there’s always the next gold rush!

    Yeah, you are probably right. Although this was – I think – probably the “big one” that I was waiting several years for. Too bad I wasn’t able to cash in on it like I’d hoped to. But I was too busy making the kinds of games I wanna make… 😉
