Not every indie dev is like that, not even the majority. Just a small clique of opportunistic shitheads who push low effort shovelware garbage on Steam and they need bullshit and excuses like this to keep selling them. Luckily, most of them will die out like the Tale of Tales, thanks to Steam refund policy. Let me be blunt: if your game is not worth playing more than 2 hours, your game is not worth a single dime.

You want to play a good indie game that is not made by shitheads? Have this one: http://store.steampowered.com/app/335000

I just finished it today and I'm gonna play it one more time to see all the possibilities.

And just to add this. You don't need to be a gamer to make games, just like you don't need to read books to be a writer, but the quality of your product will be shit and everyone will laugh at you.

I'd also recommend Dust: An Elysian Tail. It was made by one single guy and for that it's pretty awesome.

I couldn't get past the furry factor in that game... Looked like a good game but... Shudder

A SINGLE dude? Shit. I'm EVEN more impressed, if that's possible. Dust is one of my favorite platform games in the history of ever.

Cave Story was also made by a single guy - all of it, including music

I must be following the wrong sorts of indie gaming sites, because I've never heard of this game and it looks awesome.

If we are to recommend Indies. The best one i know so far that is not an AAA game is Overgrowth. Link. Now i do not intend to provide advertisements for that game, but it is something you should take a look at.

I apologise for the link to any mods that goes bananas against me.

That's not always true, I've played some 2 hour games that I really enjoyed (The Stanley Parable comes to mind), I wouldn't pay more than around $10 for them though.
