Generally speaking, indie games are those titles developed by small teams or individuals that benefit from little to no financial backing. In the beginning, Minecraft was an indie game, too, being the work of a sole developer, but its huge success drew the attention of various giant companies - including Microsoft, which eventually bought the game and the startup that its developer had founded.
