It wasn't developed by Warner Bros. That's the publisher. Bastion was developed by Supergiant Games at their own cost.

pang, Indie games are games that are produced and published by individual development companies, who are usually small time. And the word Indie comes from the word Individual.

The Lego Indiana Jones games are developed by Lucusarts, which isn't an Indie company.

The Lego Indiana Jones games aren't "Indie" games so as to speak...

I think both you and I got a little confused here...

As for Bastion, the developers are Indie but the publisher on the other hand, is Warner bros. Publisher =/= developers.

I would say my favorite indie games are minecraft, Amnesia, and Killing Floor.

Basically all of them had a lot of replay ability and don't really get old.

I guess I'll end my fun

I know what Indie games are..and I know the difference between Indie games and Indy (Indiana Jones).

Alas..I was doing a technique called trolling, you might have heard of it?
Though..it can hardly be called trolling now, as I've broken character as well as announced what it was I was doing

Hey guys have any of you watched Indie Game: The Movie?

A very good (and inspiring) movie! I highly recommend checking it out.

I'm not sure what you're implying. WB had nothing to do with the game's development. Bastion is an indie game.

And the word Indie comes from the word Individual.
Actually, as far as I know, indie means "independent" (at least that's the case in music), as in a studio that's independent from major publishers. Studios with tiny crews, that fund themselves and make what they want to make. There's a lot of small studios that are subsidiary to big companies like Sony and EA. Maxis was an indie studio a thousand years ago and belongs to EA now.
Supergiant Studios, on the other hand, made Bastion entirely on their own and made a publishing deal with WB.
