I don’t enjoy E3. It’s a vast sprawling convention of monstrous noise and giant corporations, furiously trying to out bass each other in an attempt to hawk their AAA wares. The first time I went, my shoes literally fell to pieces, my feet more blister than skin, as I trudged through the morbid streets of LA to my ant-infested hotel room, writing up the screaming madness I’d seen each day.
And one thing you don’t tend to see at E3 is indies. Which makes me very glad that Indies Crash E3 [Kickstarter] exists. In 2013 they paid the way for a number of indie teams to be able to present their games within the corporate madness, and they’re after (an extremely small amount of) money, to see if they can do it again.
