In an era where companies are constantly locked in a race to make the most revenue with the least amount of effort via live service, launching games with a “release now, fix later” mentality, and investing an astronomical amount of resources and money in development leading to industry-wide price hikes, Lethal Company shows what games are actually about.
It’s often talked about whether the game industry needs to go back to square one due to how volatile this ecosystem has become. Massive investments raise the risk factor of doing business, leading to layoffs or even studio closures in the event of a product that doesn’t perform.
With the advancements in technology picking up the pace, indie games may go on to rival AAA development in the future. That said, its continued success shows that you don’t necessarily need to bank on those things to make a product that sells.
Lethal Company launched on October 24, 2023, in early access for PC.
