There are plenty of great western indie games if you go looking for them. There's just been a huge inflation of "indie" shovelware recently so you need to wade through a big pile of shit to get to them.

Japanese indie games on the other hand are already filtered for you. You only hear about the worthwile titles; the chance of someone mentioning some shit japanese-only indie game on the english speaking web is very low.

i don't really think there's any noteworthy differences between the western and eastern indie scenes. the reason there are seemingly so many good eastern games compared to westerns is because they are the only ones worth exporting and translating.
i doubt, for instance that many easterners know about Gone Home or Dear Esther as they simply aren't worth exporting.

RBO is great, but weebs are faggot who use their lack of knowledge of the western market to force their opinions on others.
As soon as Japan can make a roguelike as good as C:DDA or Dorf Fortress or Nethack or a MUD as good as HellMOO or Akanbar I'll retract my previous statement.

>roguelike
>Dorf Fortress
I'd hardly call Dwarf Fortress a roguelike (unless you're playing Adventurer Mode for whatever reason). I'd be extremely surprised if a game like Dwarf Fortress is ever created in Japan or anywhere else really. My impression of doujin games as a whole is that they tend to create polished and exemplary games of an established template rather than bring out something as quite so inventive, which is part of why a great roguelike is probably unlikely.

No, fuck you m8, we've already surpassed that "ideal standards" long ago and your inability to scour for good western indie game with great graphics and production doesn't help.
>>
>>274658474
>Faux permadeath
>Save-states
>No dungeons
Don't get me wrong, it's a decent game, but it's hardly a roguelike aside from the procedural generation, visuals, and turn-based combat, and if we were to go by that definition, then there would be an absolute fuck-ton of RPG Maker "roguelikes."

Japanese indie/doujin games, construction and design-wise feel closer to the games I've played from the generations of consoles I grew up with and are just more appealing aesthetically. Western contemporaries on average just aren't very interesting save a few.

Also, Japanese-made games just click with me more, there's something indescribable about them I really love despite not being as flashy as most western games.
>>
>>274660042

Its not, its simple truth. In the West, we're told that not trying your hardest and being bad in school is "cool" and "hip", that our traditions are "tired" and "not progressive" and that change is inherently good, even though its not a fact. There's no elitism anymore, which is sad. In the old days you used to see the poor dressing in suits and trying to be well spoken and read. Now, you see the rich and successful emulating "ghetto" people and speaking in ebonics (that shitty accent every black person, celebrity and teenager has). When the successful are copying the unsuccessful, you have a diseased culture. In Japan, everybody wants to be the best at their respective role in life. Even delinquents, they put a lot of effort into their knowledge of bikes and cars, their suits, their image and their hairstyles. In the West you basically just wear your pants around your ankles and act like a nigger.

Does the West have anything like Comiket? Seems like the biggest factor in Eastern indie games is a big convention that promotes creativity and commerce. Also helps that most Eastern creators give zero fucks about their work being used and sold by others since they all mostly do it for the love of creation instead of dosh mones.

Neat.
>>
>>274664103
Comiket is a massive copyright infringement event that was turned a blind eye because of the huge publicity it gives to the industry. Japanese publishers can't shut that down because the backlash will be too great and they will lose an important (free!) channel for publicity. If something like that was to start in the West, it has to start small, and small things are easier to crush. You can bet your ass the publishers will put a stop to it real quick.

This is what Westerner actually believes.
While it's true to some degree, most of the circle/author are doing it because they love the subject matter just like >>274664103 said. And I see it as creative freedom more than copyright infringement.

I want to point out that this is why writing in video games are shit too. They give the writing job to some hack amateur, and they write for shit, and because they write for shit games with any kind of story is dismissed by people in generally because it's a badly written ugly/grimdark/kiddie mess that anyone with half a brain would know to ignore.

This industry will continue to be shit on as long as devs are lazy and cheap about graphics and writing.

A lot of doujinsoft is made to be sold at comiket and other such event. Other times, it'll be collaborative efforts within a team of artists and developers. Western indie games aren't very different, aside from the fact that there are fewer people that are willing to work in teams to meet the endgoal of having a good, fun game to play.

Not all of them. You just need to find people that are all about the labor of love, rather than the prospect of profit.

Hydorah, Daniel Remar's games in general (Iji, Hero Core, Hyper Princess Pitch, Garden Gnome Carnage, the strawberry game WHENEVER THE FUCK HE FINISHES IT), Spelunky, and many others were made entirely for free and are fantastic plays.

Except they fucking aren't.

They are much uglier (in a technical sense, the design itself is usually good), have poor VFX, and gameplay very rarely makes up for it (though there are notable exceptions, like Touhou).

Also, they are stuck, technologically, like two generations back.

Indie games are made by normalfags who cant into computers.
Not that japs can, but they are usually otakus which is creature several levels above the normalfag in intelligence.
>>
I wish I wasn't stupid, because I want to make a simple platformer game yet I'm finding it stupidly hard to comprehend coding. I spent several days trying to learn it, and I just couldn't absorb it.

I can do sprites, I can write dialogue, and if given the programs I could probably make music too, but I just can't wrap my head around coding.
>>
>>274661995
I remember never being able to find a fucking download of this game despite being recommended all the time in indie threads.
>>
>>274688132
Look into Game Maker. It's actually really good for starting out and learning coding, while being pretty powerful despite its simple presentation.

Don't feel bad about it. Some people are just more creatively minded than technically minded so it takes a while. As long as you're not a useless slug it's all good.

>>274689528
the game dev general over at /vg/ said the same thing. That's sadly something I tried and failed at.

I'm really, REALLY dumb with coding.

>>274691546
Did you try looking at tutorials using code instead of drag and drop?

I remember there being a 3D game, too.
>>
>>274692313
I've tried learning Python, C++ or whatever it's called, and Java. Of course, I tried to be lazy and do drag and drop, but I know that's not the right way to make a game. It's A way, but not THE way.

I'll give that channel a watch though, because anything to help an idiot learn is valuable.

>>274693149
Just cause it isn't THE way doesn't mean you should exclude it. It still teaches you a lot of the core mechanics of programming and can translate easily into actual code once you get the hang of it. Programming is just like any other art, it doesn't matter what program or medium you use so long as you know the basic skills and techniques.
I would also suggest you play games with programming mechanics in them, such as Garry's Mod with Wire Mod installed, Minecraft with redstone mods, Terraria, Space Engineers, and there's surely more I either don't know of or have just forgotten.
