Indie

adjective; clipping
Independent, but in a unique non-mainstream way. Possible reason used: Using ‘indie’ as opposed to ‘independent’ gives a sense of originality and forward thinking to the situational context. The word is used in this context to convey a sense that the products described in the article are unique and ‘outside the box’ of mainstream games. This term represents an object or idea that is not just separate from everything else, but is on a higher level of evolvement.
