Indie game developers are sure in the news nowadays. After the Phil Fish fiasco, where he called Japanese games “terrible”, we have another guy who takes it one step further.
Tyrone Rodriguez is the founder of a small Indie company called Nicalis, and they have ported games like Cave Story and VVVVVV. He calls out Kojima for making terrible games and also calls him a bad writer.
I don’t quite agree with him as Kojima has made spectacular games, but this is what he had to say.
“Konami doesn’t make good stuff. He’s terrible at making games. Metal Gear is good in spite of him. I haven’t enjoyed a game of his since maybe the original Metal Gear Solid, maybe,” he revealed.
He also wanted people to ditch the “Indie” name and just call them game developers instead.
“The main thing I want to see from indie developers is to stop calling themselves indie developers,” he said.
“You’re either a game developer or you’re not. Indie has nothing to do with it. It’s like this cool buzzword now. Do you make games? Okay, then you’re a game developer”.
