I found this article of particular interest as I am creating a video game of my own and attempting this project as a solo effort.

The term Indie is defined by Gamer Headlines (2014) as ‘video games created by individuals or small teams generally without video game publisher financial support.’ Most of these types of developers use Steam to advertise their products in the hope that people will play it. Games such as Minecraft were created by a small team, according to an article by Venturebeat (2013), in the year 2012 the creator Markus Persson ‘made $101 million.

Triple A companies such as Activision and EA Sports are major players in the video game industry, they have hundreds of game programmers/developers meaning that production of their titles are completed in an efficient manner to meet customer demands.
