Dropleaf is Like the Netflix of Indie Gaming!

Dropleaf wants you playing allll of the games!

October 19, 2017

Seattle, Bellevue and beyond are putting Washington on the map for gaming thanks to some juggernauts like Microsoft, Bungie, and of course Valve, but like anything that is a behemoth of an industry, outliers will step away from the big names and try to find their own niche. I had little notion of just how huge the indie gaming industry is in the Pacific Northwest, or really just in general!

In our case, it's like when indie music took some much-needed spotlight with the accessibility and affordability of home recording. Sure we still got stoked for a big new Foo Fighters record, but now someone could realistically write and record their own album in their closet - someone who previously might never have their voice heard without the advance.

Now, the same revolution has happened in the gaming world.

Dropleaf.io wants to help the indie developer focus on making great games at whatever pace they want by tackling the marketing and promotion of the games themselves. For a small monthly fee of five to ten bucks, they want you to access dozens of new games. As a creative person myself, the marketing and push of a product alleviates all that acid reflux inducing stress I would otherwise experience handling all aspects myself!

I had a chance to speak with the CEO of dropleaf, Vikram Rangraj and one of the indies getting his game in the faces of dropleaf users, the developer of Warcube, Craig Zaock.

Make sure to stop by the Indie Gaming Zone at Ge2 this weekend to check out dropleaf and other awesome indie games from our hood!

With networks of game developers working how they want on what they want, the future of gaming will have to consider the way the indies push the industry. We'll still clearly have the massive AAA games, the Fallout's, Skyrim's, and Witcher's, but the cable television revolution, someone with a savvy recognition of opportunity can change the way we buy and play games!
