The word 'independent' has been thrown around a lot this past week.

The United States just wrapped up its celebration of Independence Day, and next week Develop Brighton will celebrate some of the brightest indie games in the world.

But what does it truly mean to be independent?

When starting off as a developer, it's easy to be independent as it's the only world you know - but as companies grow and revenue flows in, an unexpected change happens and many creative game developers long for the independence to create simple, engaging games for fun once again.
