Indie developer Team Dystopia has praised Valve's decision to open up source codes and tools to let anyone try their hand at games development.
It could be from a "bunch of kids" to "a large developer" working with Steamworks, allowing them to share their work with minimal cost, and full control stays in the hands of the devs.
"I would almost say that it seems like we're entering into somewhat of a gaming revolution, from where we don't really see a large game from publishers," said Team Dystopia's lead producer Mike Sanders to .
"Valve just really publishes their console variants through EA and it seems evident that they're opening up the crowd to anybody in their garage."
For those who don't know exactly whatis, it's a service that Valve provides entirely free to let developers have total control over a games distribution through Steam with no fees or signing over of rights to their creations.
"It could be anyone from a bunch of kids trying to make in indie game, to a large developer who doesn't really want to pay for publishing, testing, and so on."
"Steamworks allows for all that, so it's really a good choice for anyone to just jump in and be able to put a game on Steam - and do it the right way," notes Sanders.
