Electronic Arts recently announced that they would be releasing an indie bundle on Steam with DeathSpank, DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue, Gatling Gears, Shank, Shank 2 and Warp. Mojang founder Markus Persson, however, is not amused at EA’s nomenclature.
“EA releases an ‘indie bundle’ That’s not how that works, EA,” tweeted Persson. “Stop attempting to ruin everything, you bunch of cynical bastards. Indies are saving gaming. EA is methodically destroying it.”
While this would seem to be giving himself credit for saving gaming, Persson quickly added that he was referring to other developers. “FYI, I don’t even call Mojang indie any more,” he tweeted. “Vlambeer is indie. Polytron is indie. Stephen, Ed, Terry, Derek, Tommy and Chris are indie.”
