Notch: EA is methodically destroying gaming

0

Minecraft developer Markus "Notch" Persson is angry at Electronic Arts for exploiting the concept of the indie bundle, expressing his distaste for the company's self-made association with independent developers. According to the beloved industry figure, indie games are saving the industry while EA is killing it. 

"EA releases an 'indie bundle'? That's not how that works, EA," he Tweeted. "Stop attempting to ruin everything, you bunch of cynical bastards.

"I don't even call Mojang indie any more. Vlambeer is indie. Polytron is indie. Stephen, Ed, Terry, Derek, Tommy and Chris are indie. Indies are saving gaming. EA is methodically destroying it."

The studios featured in EA's bundle are indie through having no owners, but it still looks kind of funny to see one of the largest and slimiest publishers in the business trying to make coin through indie street cred. At least the games are solid, so that's something!
