Mega64 always makes a point to honor indies at the Game Developers Conference each year with a video, and this year the comedy video team produced this touching tribute to the folks who turned in their indie jackets for a stable job and full benefits in the gaming industry.

The group explains, "Most people who watch Mega64 are successful businessman, so you all know how it feels to lose touch with your roots in the middle of a corporate world. Our new video ... showcases a man, powerful in the video game industry, longing to return to his indie roots… Be prepared to cry."

And if you haven't seen them yet, don't forget to watch Mega64's other GDC videos from this year, including its look at Heavy Rain brought into the real world and the startling reveal of how the Shenmue series was meant to end (narrarated by Shenmue director Yu Suzuki!)
