A downloadable book

The Weapons of Progress explores the recent indie revolution and the plight of those trying to make a living from game development. It shows how this revolution was doomed to failure and subverted to become a method of cultural control.

Chapter II looks at the economics behind the collapse of videogame pricing, why it is hard to resist and what this has to do with the so-called indiepocalypse.

Joel Goodwin has been writing essays on the videogame site Electron Dance for over six years. He is also an occasional guest writer on Rock Paper Shotgun and a Games Journalism Award Finalist.
