Game development has exploded over the last few years, and now it seems like everyone is making a video game. You've got big studios full of hundreds of people. You've got small teams making incredible games. There are more people in independent game development than ever. This is an amazing thing, because everyone brings their unique experience and sensibilities to game design.
The more people who we can get making games and sharing their individual voices, the more we will see games evolve in new and exciting directions. Believe it or not, this can involve you.
