“just as hard”

It’s strange that Phil Fish is the indie critical darling, seeing as he’s never actually made a game. Fez looks great and all, but we all work just as hard on our games and nobody’s falling over themselves for us pre-release. BLAAARRRGH!

-Various Indie Devs on Various Forums (paraphrased)

“Working hard” is not a binary. Raise your hand if you’ve spent four solid years working on a single game, quitting your job to work on it full-time and sinking your own savings into it, with no guarantee that you won’t be completely financially fucked should the game tank on XBLA.

If you’ve done those things, you work “just as hard” as Phil Fish.

The rest of you probably work very hard, but put your fucking hands down.
