    This forum is for all indie games that are not free. Obviously, two of the biggest games here will by Dungeon defenders and Terraria. Minecraft has its own forum. You can post anything about those two games and any other indie game here:).

    I would say not being a major publisher.

    Yeah it seems lately the most common definition is No Publisher = Indie Game.

    Of course, some of the best indie games could be gobbled up by a publisher if they are successful enough:).

    Yeah and sometimes a Publisher allows the Developer to work Independently, without any input. So it can be unfair to say No Publisher = Indie Game.

    Does anybody have the perfect definition for it? I know it has been asked here quite a few times:).

    Isn't one. Indie Game means Independent Game so it should abide by the definitions of "Independent". I think Wikipedia puts it best:

    This forum has been moved down to Online Games since the Debates Forum was added back.
