There was a time when independently produced video games were relegated to the realms of freeware or extremely low priced bargain titles. Now indie video games are big business. Microsoft has announced via Twitter that games published through the [email protected] program have generated over $500 million in sales since it launched in 2014.

[email protected] is a program for independent developers to self-publish games on Xbox One and Windows. Developers who ship games through [email protected] do not have to pay fees to update their games and gain access to technical documentation and resources such as the Unity game engine or Unreal Engine 4.

I am a business major, photographer and I occasionally write something that is somewhat legible. I also happen to be a long time gamer rocking my older brother's Atari 2600 and ColecoVision until that magical day I got the NES Deluxe set. These days I bounce mostly between PC games, home consoles and handhelds.
