Indie gaming is bigger than ever. Once it was niche, but one Minecraft, Super Meat Boy and Fez later, indie games have quickly become the innovative heart of the gaming industry.
A similar trend can be seen emerging in the tabletop gaming sector. Every day there are new, talented designers that are throwing their hat into the ring to make a name for themselves.
This indie spirit is not only what invigorates the video game and tabletop markets, it's what keeps them alive. It's what pushes them to evolve and is a constant source of fresh, new ideas. And with that, we're launching a new #WritingChallenge for you to celebrate this spirit.
