i'd say the problem is that security and stability are very hard to come by and people are pursuing their passion projects. this makes for a pool of people who are very very susceptible to exploitation and abuse by anyone who can provide even a small amount of money/experience/expertise. you see this kind of isolation tactics from abusers in less geographically disparate fields too, it's all about who has power and who is dependent.I suppose the problem with indie game dev (from an outside perspective) is that a lot of people work remotely from one another. So it makes it easier for abusers to silo off groups or people who then have no one to turn to for support.
It's amazing that this already terrible situation is actually much worse than I thought.
I'm just desperately hoping it doesn't kick off GG 2.0.
