In case you missed the fervor, EA recently put together a Steam bundle of six games developed by independent developers via their EA Partners program. It was unfortunately named the "EA Indie Bundle" and there was a bit of ... contention about it.
Since I worked on many of the games in the bundle in some form or another, I talked to Rock, Paper, Shotgun about the whole thing. And some other stuff too, like the ethics of media consumption in general when nearly everything that gets made these days is ultimately owned by some asshole or another (read: usually Rupert Murdoch). Considering I've had massive respect for RPS for quite some time, getting to talk to them at length was actually a pretty darn cool thing for me.
Anyway, summary of my thoughts on the whole thing is, it's not a good name, but the games themselves were created under the right conditions for the right reasons by developers independent of EA. I think some of the people howling about the sale may didn't understand all the games were made by folks with total creative independence (and we really did, even though it sounds too good to be true). I just wanted people to understand the who and why of those games. If they do and still take umbrage, that's totally fair.
The sale does support all the developers though, and if you want six weird games from weird (but awesome) people, most of whom are actually Canadian (and the last sixth are Dutch), $20 is a darn good deal. If you're not cool with it, I understand. If you have more questions, I'm happy to answer them as best I can.
And with that bit of the past concluded, there should be some more Ninja excitement in the near future. More soon.
