It’s always tough to be honest in any industry, but nothing is harder than being straight faced in the media. If the last few hours post-Microsoft’s total 180 on it’s abhorrent DRM practices were any indication, trying to strongarm your policies through consumers better judgement, all you will gain is their ire. In a video series focusing on Indie Game development, Misfit Attic explore the hardships of choosing to develop titles without the help of publishers or multi-million dollar studios, all while being honest with the customer. While the scene is set by vinyl action figures, the message is clear: vast members of the market don’t understand when they are being mistreated, so being truthful with them is a tough road of shifting perspectives. Also, it’s a game of trying to convince people their PCs are more than Facebook and Angry Bird machines.
