Jonathan Blow, creator of independent game hits Braid and The Witness, had a lot to say at the Casual Connect conference about independent game development, primarily it's failures.

But is independent game development truly "stagnant"?

What positive direction can we take from Mr. Blow's comments?

How do creativity, business, and the market combine to both help and hinder new and innovative ideas?

And why is it important to focus on the kernels of truth from Mr. Blow (and others) when the main premise is so obviously...debatable?

Can I get a Witness? It's time for Virtual Legality.
