The Indie Arena is a community for the independent game developers in the German-speaking countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. To us independent means that the games were built with a high degree of creative autonomy. That doesn't mean that our members do this alone or that they do exclusively that. But it means that they are involved with creating the game itself (for example: designers, coders, artists etc.) whether as hobbyists or professionals.
